    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★½

    Maybe it’s just my love for the classic slapstick subgenre in general, but this is my favourite Spielberg movie. The gags come fast, most of them are silly, but almost all of them stick one way or another. And the spectacle, that dominates the 2nd half of the movie (and there is a lot of it), is as perfectly staged as you expect it from a Spielberg movie.

    If it has one flaw, it’s maybe that not every actor has…
