I DID write a review of "The Phantom Menace" on my site in which I talked about seeing that one late. I didn't see it in theater in 1999, as I was much more into music than new movies of any kind at the time. I saw it over a year later on VHS and didn't like it.
Last year though (for the review), I watched "Phantom Menace" via the "Complete Saga" Blu-ray set and I enjoyed it. I think it's underrated.
Haven't seen "Solo", yet.
