I have to admit that I, like a lot of people, was not expecting great things. The firing of the previous directors, flying in acting coaches, and all the other woes of this film that have been in the press made me less than excited. But as a good little Star Wars nerd I watched it, but with pretty low expectations. I was floored. This movie is great. Alden is 35% Harrison Ford and 100% Han Solo, he was perfect, I have no issue with his performance at all. Donald Glover was such a bright spot with a great embodiment of Lando as well. Subtle nods to previously known planets and characters made me feel at home and in good hands. Chewie rips peoples arms off and literally ate deserting soldiers, they fought space Cthulhu and Han shot first. What more could you ask for?
