Nice review, Todd! I only saw the movie once in theaters and remember liking it but not being overly enthused about it either. But in hindsight I think I was in a bad mood that day to begin with which may have influenced my lack of enthusiasm, and your review has me really looking forward to revisiting the film on disc.

Nice review Todd, I agree with your opinion about this film. I enjoyed it and saw it twice in the cinema, once in 2-D and the next in 3-D. I'll be buying this 4K/UHD release in late November.:)

I liked this better at home than I did on the big screen, for all the reasons cited. Given the disappointing box office, I wonder if LFL has considered the possibility of a streaming series rather than sequels? The format of the film almost seems to lend itself to that.

That actually seems like something they could pull off. Ehrenreich isn’t a big name; he can be got. Glover is primarily a TV actor; he can be got. Suotamo doesn’t seem like a hard get, and if he is, that role can more easily be recast. I’m intrigued by that idea.

This is the best Star Wars film produced under Disney, IMO. It's not full of phony baloney like the other three. I said that the day I saw it, and still believe that after watching the disc.

I noticed there was no digital code contained with my disc. I suppose it's only fair when a privilege is institutionally abused, it's taken away.

Where did you purchase your disc, and what format? As far as I know, only the DVD version does not include a digital copy, unless Walmart is selling their "exclusive" Blu-ray editions again that do not include a digital copy.

Good for you. Did I say something in the past about you not buying the steelbook?

Thanks for the fine review, Todd. I haven't seen the film yet, as The Last Jedi kind of soured me towards Disney's Star Wars. However, I think I'm going to use some Amazon "digital credits" this evening to rent Solo. I haven't missed a Star Wars film yet, and this way it doesn't cost me anything versus making a blind purchase. If I end up liking it, I'll pick up the UHD somewhere down the road if the price ever drops to around $17 - $18 (but with Di$ney, that will probably take a loooonnnnggggg time)..

The steel book was the only 4K version my local Best Buy had in stock.

We had a friendly back-and-forth about steelbooks in the Incredibles thread a few weeks ago....
Yeah, but I was speaking about my purchasing preferences. I would never tell somebody else how to spend their monies as it's none of my business. By the way, I just bought the "Platoon" Steelbook because I found a reasonable price for it which is why I'm reluctant to buy such releases due to their usual high price point.

I watched it this afternoon(!) and a lot of it appears murky - even with the curtains closed(!) - I’ll have to have another go one evening when it’s dark(er)
Quite enjoyed the story however...
