(WARNING: SPOILER ALERT BELOW)
I finally saw Solo. I have been asking to watch Star Wars movies – ANY Star Wars – for two years; in 2019, that wish was finally granted. Solo is one of four Star Wars movies that I have seen this year.
Flashback: New Years Eve, 2018:
I COULD NOT SLEEP! After what felt like endless hours of tossing and turning (which was probably more like half-an-hour), I suddenly remembered: earlier that day, Mom had said I might be allowed to stay up until midnight.
I sat up, got out of bed, and went to the living room. Mom was lying on the couch.
“Can we watch Star Wars?” I asked.
My mom said, “Ask your dad.”
Dad said, “Maybe.”
As usual, they had to discuss. After a seemingly long and boring process, an answer was finally produced: “Yes.”
Sweet, sweet success!
Star Wars: A New Hope
Dad woke up my brother Thales, who flew out of his room and down the stairs to join us in the living room. Mom bought A New Hope through YouTube. Then, the three of us (Dad, Thales, and I) retreated to the basement. We settled into the couch in front of our flat screen T.V. From start to finish, we were completely amazed by the movie. At 12:15 a.m., January 1, 2019, the movie was over. Everyone was ready to hit the sack; especially, Thales, who almost dozed off more than once during the movie.
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
One month later, and after much pleading and begging, February’s movie of the month became The Empire Strikes Back. In my opinion, it was even better than the first movie in the original Star Wars trilogy.
Star Wars: Solo
Now, on to our original topic: Solo.
Up to this point, I had been wondering when mom and dad would ever let me progress past 1970’s films.
That’s why, just a few weeks later, Thales and I couldn’t believe our ears when our parents said we could watch Solo. Thankfully, this was not some practical joke played on us by our dad (which he sometimes does).
So, what did I think of Solo?
My movie review of Solo
It was an amazing movie, and I would definitely recommend it. I greatly enjoyed seeing the backstory of Han’s childhood. But, (SPOILER ALERT) in the end, it was certainly a twist that Qi’ra was a traitor, and I was left feeling disappointed. Even so, it was a thrilling experience. We even watched it again two days later. It was totally worth the $3.99 my parents paid to rent it.
That’s my opinion. Which Star Wars movie do you like best?
