You know... I preferred this to Rogue One.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Some thoughts:
-  Ehrenreich was better than I expected. His performance is more of an emulation of Han’s essence rather than a Harrison Ford impressionh/wholesale takeover of the role which is probably the best we could expect from any actor at this rate. He has good chemistry with Chewie.
- First act was reasonably engaging though not without faults; some of the origin story stuff was tacky (e.g. how he got his name) but I was reasonable invested.
- The entire Kessel sequence was probably where the film drags the most. It suffers from some of the disparate storytelling tendencies shared by Rogue One. Fanservice overall was less egregious than that film though.
- None of the character deaths had any weight. I had no problem with Droid Anita Sarkeesian kicking the bucket.
- I see the complaints with the cinematography being ugly but I’m just neutral toward it. I see the intent but the execution with that lighting could have been better (see Blade Runner 2049, for example).
