    The World Is Not Enough

    ★★½

    There's things done in this film that challenge Bond and his character in a way that I should love. It's also the first time in a while that they've really tried to do something different with the villains, and the great Robert Carlyle brings an interesting physicality and vulnerability to the role.

    M3GAN

    ★★★★

    A lot of this works because M3GAN as a character never ceased to be funny or unsettling to look at or see move. The crowd I saw this with had at least ten people laughing at any given shot of her, which added a good sense of fun to the entire thing. Aside from her just working as an entertaining thing to see and hear, the movie is just well-written and well performed where it all counts. I cared about…
