Hamill recently said his appearance at end of SW7:TFA was best/most famous entrance in movie history:

To each their own of course.  Others from a different strain of interest might cite Ursula Andress' appearance from the sea.  For example.

Time will tell of course.

Another article described filming chaos of Solo b4 Ron Howard took over. They were doing 25-30 takes per scene, often veering off script!

Howard reshot the ENTIRE movie with just 2-3 takes per scene, will be sole credited director.

Five more days, seems to be getting positive buzz. Box office “experts” predict it will surpass Rogue One. Ron Howard said Lucasfilm may green light direct Solo sequels if it’s a hit:

The major movie critics mostly like Solo ... but the reviews are significantly less favorable than for two of the other Disney-era SW films:

Reviews are good for the two that really matter, Variety and Hwd Reporter.

Saw Solo tonight and really enjoyed it.  Some great film technique and cool homage to some 1960s and 1970s camera angles along with all the contemporary goodies.  Glover as Lando had incredible Colt 45, Billy Dee inspired magic.  The actor playing Han reminded me of a young Jack Nicholson infused with Harrison Ford's Indie.   Great all around cast.  It's also one of the very few recent special effects movies where the effects seemed natural and not distracting to me.

Saw it today, it's an easy A, summer rollercoaster thrills, VERY surprising cameo by "new" bad guy.

Yo. Wow. He was FIRST to audition! (BTW Harrison Ford initially in 1975 only HELPED GL to audition other actors. GL eventually warmed to the possibility of hiring HF only indirectly through this process!)

Lotsa press reports about "deeply disappointing" box office. Oh well, guess Star Wars fatigue is here in full "Force." (Last Jedi also underperformed by $300 mill first.)

Guess most of these spinoffs will never take off or get produced solely for upcoming Disney streaming service:
