Cross-posting:

I just finished watching the movie on Blu-ray, and I really wish I'd had the opportunity to see it in a theater, because it would've made the experience even more epic.

I don't know what was 'off' about Lawrence Kasdan's writing on The Force Awakens, but Solo was everything that I wanted that movie to be: straightforwardly thematically and rhythmically consistent with the rest of the franchise whilst simultaneously offering something new.

Alden Erehnreich was absolutely spectacular as Han, rightfully bringing his own acting style to the role whilst still making it believable that the Han we see here is very much the character player by Harrison Ford, and the cast they surrounded him with were equally excellent across the board.

I was especially taken with Emilia Clarke's Q'ira, who reminded me of Eva Green's Vesper Lynx mixed with the Legends character of Shada D'ukal, and I really hope Lucasfilm finds a way to bring her back and continue the story they set up with her betrayal of Han and rise in the ranks of Crimson Dawn.

Donald Glover was also great as Lando, although I do wish he'd followed Alden's lead in not trying to deliberately 'channel' Billy Dee Williams and had instead made the role more 'his'; I did really enjoy his relationship with L3, though, and love that they made her part of the Falcon, although it does make me wish that there were 'deleted scenes' from TESB and RotJ where he and she were 'reunited'.

All in all, I really enjoyed Solo, and sincerely hope that, in the aftermath of Episode IX, Lucasfilm will choose disregard the fact that it didn't meet monetary expectations and continue the story it set up in some fashion.

After posting that review, I was ruminating some more on the film and realized that L3 has surpassed all other female characters in the franchise for me in terms of awesomeness, which is a feat because of how great some of the series' other female characters are and have been, and her awesomeness is only buoyed by the fact that she's actually been part of the franchise for 41 years without any of us knowing.

I've seen and heard some people complain about how her fate is "icky" or disrespectful towards women by playing into outdated tropes, but I just don't see it because of the fact that, as the sentient "heart" of the franchise's most iconic vehicle, she plays a massively significant role in restoring peace to the galaxy, which is a fantastic legacy to leave behind.
