    ★★★★

    aka Gone Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    My new favourite Paul Feig film doesn't just have a director breaking type. It also has its two stars breaking type in vastly different ways, and the sheer energy generated by the combined combustion of Feig, Anna Kendrick, and Blake Motherfucking Lively is more than enough to power the most entertainingly over-the-top cinema experience I've had all year. Outlandish, outrageous, and outstanding.

    Funny, infuriating, and exactly as pointed as it needs to be. A great script, well made, and good lord, it's well acted. John David Washington immediately joins Adam Driver in the ranks of Actors I Will Watch In Anything, and nobody gets to shit on what's-his-face about Venom ever again, because his Racist Ned Flanders was one of the year's best, most hissable anagonists.

    Good soundtrack too.

    Hey, guess what? It's nothing like the trailers. It's actually funny, actually scary, and, because there isn't a bottom half to read under a movie, it's 100% dickhead proof.

    The one thing that nobody seemed to actually buy ahead of this was that it could be both a remake and a passing of the torch. It turns out that it's both of those things and while it certainly bows to the original as much as, say, The Force Awakens does…
