    The Last Duel

    ★★★★½

    Phenomenal. Absolutely riveting from the word go, handles the nuance of its subject deftly while maintaining a sweeping scope, and full of great performances, with Comer, Damon and Driver being particularly brilliant at delivering similar yet distinct versions of their performances in each retelling. Special shout-out to Alex Lawther and Ben Affleck, who are both really fun as two men so powerful and distant from the concerns of normal people they seem constantly amused or befuddled by why anyone is making a fuss.

    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

    ★★

    Fraser remains charismatic and has a lot of the spark he had in the first two films, but Maria Bello sadly doesn't have the same chemistry with him that Rachel Weisz did, and the sense of riproaring adevnture (not to mention basic competency) that Stephen Sommers brought to the first film and parts of the second is completely absent.

    Nothing is more emblematic of how badly it bungles its potential strengths than hiring Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh, only to have their big fight scene consist of randomly assembled coverage.

    Still, there's some yetis, which is neat.
