Solo: A Star Wars Story

Directed By: Ron Howard (mostly… )

Grade: C+

Well, despite my dislike of The Last Jedi and my deep belief that no one but Harrison Ford could play Han Solo I went and saw Solo and it definitely surprised me. I think the biggest surprise is that after all the talk about the Lawrence Kasdan (and his son Jake’s) script that was my biggest issue with the movie.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Directed by: Gareth Edwards

Grade: A-

Rogue One is actually a prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy (specifically A New Hope) and tells the story of the team of rebels who retrieved the plans for the Death Star. I went into Rogue One spoiler free, save for obviously what was said and implied in A New Hope, and I really enjoyed this one.

It had a couple of problems and one thing that irrationally irritates me but honestly the last part of the movie made up for any issues I had with it.
