Solo was ok. I think worth going to the cinema but I'm not particularly fussed to see it again. The character was well acted but I don't think Solo himself was quite scoundrel enough and if anyone is a 'Mary Sue' in Star Wars then it's this version of Solo. I also don't really like his involvement with the *REDACTED* at the end of the film. The big spoiler near the end was I think a mistake. That character had a decent enough story line and ending outside the movies. I see no purpose in his existence in this film - it's confusing for every fan who doesn't keep up with the media outside the films. Probably the highlight for me was recognising parts of my home town in some of the Corellia scenes.
TBH I'm sort of apathetic about how Star Wars will proceed as I know this will go the way of Marvel and have too many films. I know that at some point I will say 'that's enough Star Wars'. I think Episode VIIII may be the last one I see in theatre. My advice is just to enjoy the ride until you want to get off.
If I was to rank Star Wars films:
