    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★½

    Christopher Nolan called. He wants his Hans Zimmer score and heist sequence back.

    But seriously, this movie was ridiculous and fun in all the right ways. Tom Cruise remains a weirdo.

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    ★★★

    A major Hollywood blockbuster that actually, sort of, kind of understands the basic tropes and mechanics of how video games (from the mid-1990s) work? Get outta here!

    Jack Black is tremendous in this.

    The Martian

    ★★★★

    Funny, harrowing, and gorgeous, The Martian is easily one of Ridley Scott’s best efforts in years. It's a wonderful showcase for all involved, particular Matt Damon and screenwriter Drew Goddard. Scott has never had trouble attracting acting talent (dat ensemble!), but the director proves once again that he can really do no wrong when paired with a great script. Plus you’ll be hard pressed to find a better looking Hollywood movie released this year. Firing on all cylinders!
