film criticism by maryann johanson | since 1997

dreaming of a female-gazey Han Solo movie…


…maybe one directed by a woman who understands why we love this scoundrel.

I tweeted this and it got a lot of love. This tells me that I’m not the only geek girl a little cheesed off that the fan service we get in Solo is not the fan service I wanted.

The more I think about this, the more I wonder whether my complaint in my review that Alden Ehrenreich is bland — cute, but bland — isn’t the actor’s fault but because Ron Howard barely lets the camera linger on him long enough for him to show any personality.
