This movie has so much heart. Perfect mix of nostalgic 80s era songs, references and vibe; and a softer feel of a relationship between B and his new companion. If only the makers of Solo understood this is how you properly hook your audience into caring about the bond of machine and human, not that mess with L3 and Lando.
