    xXx: Return of Xander Cage

    ★★★

    Having a new partner means sharing your best references with them. And my best reference is clearly "rippin' tubes on dirt bikes".

    I don't think I'll ever be able to recreate the fun I had seeing this for the first time on the big screen. At home it doesn't quite have the same "so aware that it's so profoundly stupid it's amazing" effect. It plays a little more just plain stupid. But I still like that quite a bit.
