This is how Solo was before the galaxy chewed up all the youthful optimism he had about life and spit him back out.

BOTTOM LINE The brightest character in the "Star Wars" universe gets a lackluster spin-off. The only other Star Wars Story that's been talked about is the standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film. That would lead you to believe that this film could be a massive train wreck.

Like all "Star Wars" movies, there will be those who will absolutely love this movie, and there are certainly things to enjoy about it.

SRO shoots gunman at Ill. high school
All Dixon Public Schools were initially placed on lockdown, but only the high school remained locked down late Wednesday morning. Howell, Jr., said they also believe there is no further threats to staff or students, or community.

Ehrenreich "captures enough of Ford's genial swagger to earn Solo bragging rights", the review affirms - "even if the performance could have benefited from flashing a few fewer winks". Well if he did, then it worked. The grouchy but somehow sexy curmudgeon that Harrison Ford created in the 1977 film and its sequels is shown here as a young man, living by his wits on Corellia, a planet where young people are routinely thrown into lives of Dickensian poverty and exploitation. He's younger; funnier; more cocky. He's Han Solo before he was beaten down and made selfish and cynical by the galaxy. And of course Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo).

Solo is not the disaster that many feared when news leaked out of those firings and hirings.

The other minor detriment to my overall enjoyment of "Solo" is that the villain- or the character that turns out to be the villain, I won't ruin the specifics of that here- ended up feeling a little undercooked to me. "RT's synopsis of the critics' aggregate opinion is that Solo is a "flawed yet fun and fast-paced space adventure" that will" satisfy newcomers to the saga as well as longtime fans who check their expectations at the theater door". In fact, the movie seems perfectly created to win back those who were upset by the visionary The Last Jedi's devastatingtwists and turns. But like Ehrenreich, he still manages to put his own unique imprint on the character. Because ultimately, Solo is a hell of a lot of fun. The character gets capes, boots, and a nice style of costumes. Ehrenreich's signed up for two more "Solo" movies, should the grosses cooperate.

Athletics' Piscotty homers in first at-bat since mother's funeral
The gesture was a tribute to his mother, Gretchen Piscotty, who passed away on May 6 after battling ALS for almost one year. Mengden has allowed no more than two runs in his past three outings and no more than three in seven of his nine starts.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37. Even a Star Wars version of poker plays a significant role.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - 85%. "And he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear". It may very well be the least attractive Star Wars film in the franchise's history. There are references to the Clone Wars cartoons. Oh there are references-ho ho ho, don't think there aren't copious, winky references, but they're in-jokes rather than any of the "Dun Dun Dun" grave nods to stuff that's coming, as happened in Rogue One and literally all of the prequels.

And for those interested in how Solo stacks up, Ron Howard's origin story is by no means the highest-rated Star Wars film on RT - that distinction belongs to 1980's Empire Strikes Back, which still boasts a score of 95 percent even after all these years. As for the music, it was well done.

Sony Ends Production Of Physical Games For PS Vita
Sony set a deadline of June 28, 2018 for all product code requests, with a February 15, 2019 cutoff for final purchase orders. Despite the end of physical carts, Sony did state that they will still support the release of games via the digital form.

It's worth asking how "Solo" might have fared under original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller ("The Lego Movie"), who left mid-production. It's wonderful how much just playing Star Wars music can make nearly any roughly assembled scene work on a visceral and emotional level - and Solo seems to know that, relying on sentimentality and a shorthand understanding of this universe and its legacy characters to paper over its narrative defects. There are gorgeous moments when the Millennium Falcon flies the Kessel Run. The conclusion of the movie is stale, filled with cliches, and tries too hard to set the foundation for future "Solo" movies by featuring one of the most random cameos you'll ever see in a movie (more on that in a sec, but don't worry, no spoilers).
