Goofs

In the second poker game, why would Lando put up the Millennium Falcon a second time when Han never gave him the star ship he lost in the first game? Also why did no one accuse Han of cheating when he pulled out a card he had hidden, the one he swiped from Lando, when it clearly had not been dealt to him. See more »

Better than TheLast Jedi

Better than I feared it would be, Solo is a different type of star wars film, which I welcome. No lightsabres, no mention of the force, and no big climactic battle. Alden Ehrenreich is passable as Solo,I found myself warming to him towards the end. Emilia Clarke is completely wooden and the most memorable thing about Woody Harrelson is his bad wig. Effects are excellent as you would expect, the set pieces (train heist, kessel run and the end fight with Paul Bettany are good. Only the middlesags because of Clarke's poor acting. Worth a watch
