Solo: A Star Wars Story

Monday afternoon, Sharon, Jack and I went to see Solo: A Star Wars Story at the Century Arden 14 and XD. Set prior to the events of A New Hope, the film explores the early adventures of Han Solo and Chewbacca. It is the second of the Star Wars anthology films following 2016's Rogue One.

The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Solo, alongside Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke [Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones] and Donald Glover. I was pleasantly surprised to see Woody Harrelson in so much of the movie. The film was directed by Ron Howard.

I enjoyed the film. In spite of its sorted history, the movie slightly exceeded my expectations. It was a solid movie. As we were fixing dinner, Sharon said "I give the movie a 9!"

We finished the day watching the Warriors defeat the Rockets in game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Missing 27 straight three points shots at one point, the Rockets finished 7 for 44 (16%) from three. The Warriors won the game by the score of 101 to 92. This is the first time that there have been game sevens in both the Eastern and Western conference finals since 1979.
