Why it's great: There were a ton of takes about Solo: A Star Wars Story before, during, and after it opened, mostly because Lucasfilm's new crop of "Star Wars Stories" don't really have a crucial reason for existing. They're prequels to a story in which legend is more important than fact, so who cares how Han Solo got his spaceship, as long as he got it somehow? Solo, though, is less of a throwaway than its predecessor, Rogue One, in that it sets up an arc that's genuinely entertaining and suspenseful. Though no one is certain whether Solo is going to be the beginning of a series, I kind of hope it is.
Where to watch it: Rent on Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, etc.
