    Crazy Rich Asians

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie was super fun and made me feel a lot of things as someone who grew up in Hong Kong and occasionally gawked at the excesses of new money and old money. I wish it had ended about 4 minutes earlier because Nick is an emotionally immature snooze.

    ★★★

    A great performance in a well-written film, all of which is almost fully squandered by a terrible ending.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★½

    The Mission: Impossible movies today serve basically the same cultural role James Bond movies did 30 years ago, and they are both superior to the current Bond films and much less dated/self-serious/over-sexualized.

    ★★★★½

    This movie is beautiful and uproariously funny. Emma Stone and Olivia Colman will get plenty of plaudits, as they should, but Rachel Weisz's sharp performance holds this movie together.
