    Since it's not a numbered film and I'm not super jazzed, I won't be seeing it till Friday morning.

    That being said I'm a huge Han Solo fan. He's my favorite by far. And I'm a huge Ron Howard fan. So I'm trying to check my expectations at the door.

    My son loves Han and my daughter loves Chewie & the Falcon, so they're pumped.

    Why are people worried about 70 % RT score? That's way more then all DCEU films except Wonder Woman. Beauty and The Beast had a 70%. And it cracked a billion. I am not implying Solo will. Nor does it need to. But 70ish RT is a solid score.

    RT is given a lot of importance. Metacritic is a better measure imo. And its 65 at present. For comparison Infinity War has 68. Wonder Woman 76. Rogue One 65.

    The low 70s RT score seems overly generous. There are quite a few reviews which are counted as Fresh but aren't all that glowing of endorsements of the film. The average rating is 6.5/10. Easily it could less than 65% if a few of those reviewers decided to go a little lower or C+ reviews were counted as rotten.

    For example, this is one of the "Fresh" reviews: Jason Gorber Dork Shelf "So with Solo we get a backstory that manages moments of greatness while the rest of the film feels, well, "forced". That bad feeling I had about this seems to have been on target." C+

    Another Fresh review Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilm "Chewbacca, I recognize. Lando Calrissian? He seems familiar. But this is not my Han Solo..." 2/4

    Even the positive fanboys are just sort of "meh" about it like Charlie at Emergency Awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyxD0usmeeg. I think he says the words fine and serviceable about a dozen times.

    There are also at least 200 more reviews which will be uploaded next week so the RT could drop further.

    Ethan van Sciver caught Rotten Tomatoes including positive Deadpool 2 reviews in with the Solo reviews and posted a YouTube video about it. I wonder if any negative Solo reviews are being added to Deadpool 2.
