I've seen Solo and thoroughly enjoyed it. For the most part it was quite different to other Star Wars films, mainly because Solo is just a guy with no special skills such as controlling the force. This made it interesting for me as it was a different look at the Star Wars universe and didn't require the normal dark side trying to persuade someone with the force to join them.

There were a nice number of Easter eggs that I spotted and I've now read about more which I'll look out for when I get round to seeing it again.

And, just to keep us Star Wars fans happy, it did end with some stereotypical Star Was action with space ships doing what space ships do best in their galaxy. Plus there's the unexpected twist at the end with a character appearing that I would never have guessed, had I'd been told someone was appearing. No, it wasn't Jar Jar Binks before you all get worried.

Overall, a couple of hours well spent.

Oh nooo, was it a porg???

Thanks Asphalt, I think I may go for it, especially as we get cheap tickets through my office.

I'd like to know the Easter eggs, but I wouldn't like the spoilers, so I think I'll refrain from Googling it for now!

The most exciting Easter egg for me, in a rather sad way I know, was early in the film. This won't be a spoiler so read on. They are whizzing around a place in a kind of whizzy machine, (notice the lack of spoilers here) and you get a few shots that show various enemy spaceships being built. It all looked rather cool imo.

Oh, and no it was not a Porg!

Solo was brilliant IMO, I'll need to watch it again first but my first impressions are that it's the best Star Wars film since the original trilogy.

The cast was brilliant, no weak link, and while I had my doubts when I first heard about his casting I thought Alden nailed it as Han.

Re the unexpected character at the end, not really a spoiler as such but it may make it easy for people to guess so:

I did watch DP2 on Friday.

It was hilarious, I liked it even more than the first one. Proper comedy, full of other movie references and Ryan Reynolds at his best.

I can't recommend it enough if you have watched and liked the first one.

My favourite one liner was when he called Josh Brolin

Look out for things on the yacht belonging to the guy with scars on his face for easter eggs, there are more but don't want to do any spoiling! Theres references to Indiana Jones as well as Star Wars stuff!
