Netflix famously doesn’t release viewership numbers for its individual shows or movies, but it’s safe to say that 13 Reasons Why made a big splash when it debuted on the streaming service last year.

Solo A Star Wars Story reviews

Solo: A Star Wars Story is about to land in theaters after a highly-publicized and turbulent flight, and if you’ll allow me to belabor the metaphor, it sounds as if director Ron Howard managed to pull this particular spaceship out of a potentially disastrous nosedive and smooth things out in a satisfying way.
