i enjoyed it, go in with low expectations and you will be pleased, kids loved it, they are 11 and gobbled it up
if you want to enjoy it you will, if you want to hate it you will

not too many complaints for me as long as you don't nit pick and take it for what it is, a han solo story
i have read a couple old han and lando books years ago and it reminded me of that on screen

i went with low expectations. it didn't even meet them. only dozed off for 10 min or so. woody kind annoyed me (much more than the dude that played han) and the story wasn't very compelling at all. felt like another generic Hollywood "ooh look explosions" movie.
surprised they didn't work in a unnecesary sex scene. Donald Glover was a great choice for lando though

I went in with low expectations. And came out loving it. Probably my favoite since the original trilogy. Loved all the new characters, and the "new" old characters as well.

I was pleasantly surprised, I really enjoyed it. I don't really have a lot of gripes besides one spoilery moment and Lando's annoying droid. Otherwise it was solid.

I agree. I felt bored with it last night. It wasn't terrible and I wouldn't say I hated it but I wasn't overly impressed with hardly anything with the exception Darth Maul's cameo

About 20 minutes in when the high was starting to wear off, I realized I had to do something if I was going to make it thru this movie. So I pretended I was 9 again and the movie instantly got 1000X better! There was only one soul-crushingly pathetic scene and surprisingly, it was Glover’s. But overall it was fine. #lowexpectationz

Not doing so great. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4402&p=.htm

Bummer. Saw it again yesterday. Definitely my favorite since The Force Awakens.

Yeah, that’s a real shame. I would’ve liked to see another one, but it’s looking doubtful.

Thought it was kind of a blast. Knew the Mouse wouldn't make the Solo movie I wanted, so didn't expect it. Certainly noncanonicised a whole lot of info that's been living in my head for a long long time.
