    I saw it for a second time and enjoyed it more.

    The good

    • all the neat creatures. Worm lady, sabacc creatures, etc. A few on Dryden's ship seemed a little star treky to me though.

    • I was very happy with Alden's performance. I thought he looked awful in the trailer. Glad I was wrong.

    • The brief war sequence. And I thought rogue one was a gritty war flick. The little bit of time on mimban was intense.

    • The best chewy we've ever had.
    The bad

    • I didn't like L3. I didn't hate her, she had a few funny lines, but seemed to reference real life stuff too much.

    • I thought the spice mines and kessel run were a drag. I loved the imagery of the creature getting pulled into the maw, but otherwise though these were the weakest sequences in the series.

    • I thought solo keeping the name given to him by the empire, because he had no people, and later talking about his dad was dumb, but it didn't bother me too much.
    Missed oppurtunites

    • It felt emotionally disjointed. I wanted to love Rio, but he dies before doing much. Val was wasted. Beckett's deal was don't trust anyone, but doesn't have a reply when Han called him out for trusting Val.

    • The wookies should've been Chewies family, and Han should've chosen to help chewie free his people. Give Chewie an arc. Its already a big coincidence that he found wookie slaves, why not more specific wookie slaves.

    I loved this character. Whats her name?

    My favorite Chewie is the one from TFA. A lot of screen time, funny and heroic.

    Lady proxima.

    I think Solo is the first movie were chewie did a lot of physical ass kicking. He's always had the rep of being super strong, but other than lifting lando up in the air in ESB, what do we see him do? Mostly just shooting a blaster. I liked his flying skills in TLJ too.
