    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★

    Tons of potential. So many mistakes in execution.  Eventually we all knew this was where the franchise needed to go but there’s a lack of relatable reality (visible in franchises like the Apes franchise) that just causes the entire exercise to stall.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Tom Cruise will likely die making one of these films and I've made my peace with that fact. Full speed running and death defying stunts aside this almost direct sequel to 2015's MI: Rogue Nation adds all the right elements in all the right quantities to what has quickly become the best action franchise of the 2000s. Ethan Hunt is the American extrapolation of James Bond and Mission Impossible has grown from the little spy story that could into an absolute behemoth.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    Including a rare-for-Marvel memorable "villain" turn by Michael Keaton and strong supporting work by Zendaya, Laura Harrier and Jacob Batalon, Spider-Man: Homecoming rightfully skips over the origin story we've all seen before and instead focuses on the  confusing responsibility that comes with being the youngest possible member of the Avengers. Tom Holland is so good as Spider-Man that you'd be hard pressed to remember anyone else that played the character prior (sorry Tobey).

  • Darkest Hour

    Darkest Hour

    ★★★½

    Incredible performance by Oldman in service of what's largely a pedestrian script that exists solely to act as a vessel for Churchill's persona.
