    Becky

    ★★½

    Becky is a brisk and well edited thriller, if you’re looking for a pretty bloody film. Lulu Wilson also delivers a spectacular performance.‬

    ‪Still, the gore often veers into the goofy territory, and there wasn’t much more to the film than that.‬

    ‪And yeah, Kevin James does okay.‬

    ★★★★

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a truly satisfying end to the saga.‬

    ‪There will be plenty of things to nitpick, but at bare minimum this film should give Star Wars fans what they want.‬

    ‪I loved it.‬

    ★★★★

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout is exactly as thrilling as you hope it will be! Amazing action, but it never overshadows the high stakes. The plot is complex but never convoluted. Plenty of twists and turns, some genuinely surprising. The characters are so strong. Henry Cavill is a great addition.

    All the stunts, big and small, are amazing, including the best fistfight of the series. We don’t see stunt-work like this much anymore. A breath of fresh air amidst the CGI-fueled…
