    The Favourite

    ★★★★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.

    A Star Is Born

    ★★

    Lady Gaga is great and the energy of the first 20 minutes is gripping, but the male gaze overwhelms the rest of the film.

    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.

    ★★

    I desparately wanted to like this film but it is very average. Decent performances from Lucy Liu and Pete Davidson.
