    Hustle

    ★★★½

    I don't care how formulaic it is, you can't fight the undeniable power of an underdog sports flick. Sandler carries the film with a low-energy, avuncular charm - also one of the only professional actors amongst the cavalcade of athletes in either supporting roles or cameo appearances (I didn't recognise any of them). Maybe the best Netflix movie of the year so far. Definitely in the top two Sandler Netflix movies.

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★

    No Way Home really does put in the legwork with the characters before it throws all the multiversal shenanigans at the screen. Recent MCU stuff has faltered where it has hasn't had that strong emotional core to back up the fan service. They also haven't had Willem Dafoe just chewing up the place.

    Fiercely confident, stripped down Predator sequel that rescues the moribund series from franchise jail. Ingenious backdrop, gnarly action and lean by modern standards. I had a blast with this.

    ★★★½

    Netflix finally delivers a solid blockbuster following years of naff, cheap-looking failures. Gosling, de Armas, and Evans elevate this Bourne-alike giving it some swagger admidst the lightning pace that rarely breaks for breath. CG a little ropey in places (not sure why half the action scenes need smoke) but Markus and McFeely keep the dialogue snappy and the punching is delightful.
