    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.

    Tomb Raider

    ★★★

    Vikander is excellent considering how little she’s given to work with. Studios just can’t seem to get the right balance of adventure, grit and charm necessary to capture Lara Croft’s appeal. I’d love to see Vikander return but the cast and script have to improve dramatically.

    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

    ★★★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.
