    ★★★★

    Indiana Jones vs Indiana Jane

    You know, Michelle Yeoh and the filmmakers made me believe that it's possible to single-handedly beat an army. And not through shaky cam or dubious editing but through world-class stunts, parkour, and fighting.

    And that, my friends, is why you should watch this movie.

    _________________________________________

    Stunts - 92/100 | On par with most Jackie Chan movies.

    Narrative - 68/100 | Okay-ish, but the comedy bits sometimes bring the movie to a halt. The soundtrack is…

    Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain

    ★★★

    I swear sometimes with those movies I feel like they just film random shit and edit it together to form a coherent movie! And it kinda works.

    Classical music on top of crazy visuals, this one is like watching a martial arts version of Disney's Fantasia at times.

    The way the movie uses stop motion in order to achieve the special effects they did and that back in 1983 is quite impressive I must say. They're also quite unintentionally hilarious…

    ★★

    Bland incarnate.

    I mean it's a decent movie that has a plot and characters and stuff happening. It's moderately entertaining and mildly funny at times.

    The sets and costumes are cool to look at.

    But I can't give a thumbs up to a movie like this, it's just an empty shell.

    It's a shame because I love Ridley Scott, Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett... but they have nothing to work with here.

    ★★★★½

    That Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh never starred together again on-screen after Supercop is an outright tragedy.

    Everything about these 2 together in this movie is, quite simply, absolute perfection.

    And the rest is pretty damn awesome too.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    It only took 15 years but a Hollywood movie finally figured out how to properly film a fight again! In my opinion, the last time was 2003's The Matrix Reloaded, and pretty much everything else choreographed by Hong Kong's Yuen Woo-Ping during those years. And before that, I'd say you have to go way back to Bruce Lee. So you could say this is perhaps the first time a Hollywood choreographer has figured it out.

    If this is to be…
