    I would definitely give it another chance and at least watch the whole film, if you hate it, never watch again, that's exactly my view on TLJ.

    Han Solo is by far my favourite character and I'll admit that when this film was announced my heart sank, I just couldn't see anyone other than Harrison Ford as Solo and I thought this was a big risk as it could have ruined the iconic character. Also I wasn't convinced that the casting of Alden Ehrenreich was the right choice.

    However I was always going to see this film and over time I just accepted that this is a younger, more impressionable and less experienced version of Solo, essentially a different character to the Solo of the OT and if you keep that in mind then I'm sure you will enjoy it.

    I thought Solo was great, a fun filled underworld heist with great acting, a great story behind it and while I still think it should have been released in December, it was a welcome breath of fresh air after the (in my humble opinion) awful TLJ.

    So I finally sat down to give this another go and decided that I absolutely loved it. After getting past the first 20 minutes it really came into it's own. I thought that I was going to be treated to some clichéd paint by numbers with a rebelling aging quarterback taking on 'the man'. But got something else entirely.

    It was like watching a 1930's era Black and white thriller/heist set in the the SW universe. Very well done and very intelligently made. I remember in my ranking of the films, I put it down way at the bottom because I couldn't get into it. But that's changed. I am thinking of putting it in 3rd place after TLJ and TROS. I hope we get a sequel.

    I'm glad you gave it a chance and watched the whole film, even better that you enjoyed it!

    I'd love a sequel too, that 10 year gap between SOLO and ANH is just too good an opportunity to miss out on.

    Movie sucked a wookiees hairy ass, that's why. And he looks nothing like Han Solo.
