Solo

SoloI saw Solo a couple of weeks ago. The show was well acted and has more of a plot than most Star Wars movies. As much as I hate to say it, I was a little disappointed with the movie. While I thought the actors did a fabulous job, the overall story was not as much fun as I remember Star Wars movies being. There was not a lot of humor and the action violence was more serious/intense than I remember Star Wars films being. Also, there were more innuendoes than in previous Star Wars films.

The only reason I enjoyed the film was because I grew up watching the original Star Wars trilogy, so it was fun to see where Han Solo came from and how he met Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. That alone made the movie worth watching; however, I’m not sure it made it worth paying to see it in the movie theaters.

Lost in Space (Netflix)

LostinSpace

I’ve only seen 3 episodes of Netflix’s Lost in Space, but so far it is an entertaining show. While the episodes can be slow at times, they remain suspenseful and engaging. The show is well-acted, and I’ve been especially impressed with the young child/teen actors who do a stellar job conveying the stress and tension that arise in the situations they find themselves in.
