    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

    This seems like it’s probably a four-star movie, but I didn’t understand any of it.

    Perfect.

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    Easily the best Marvel movie I've seen. I didn't know anything about there being numerous Spider-Mans (other than Miles thanks to the video game), but that didn't hurt my enjoyment of this in the least. If anything, the way it brings in all of these other characters made me think this movie would be a dream for big fans of the comics.

    As someone who's never read a Spider-Man comic, it managed to tell a fantastic story even if you…

    This movie goes full Metal Gear Solid by the end, and I love it so much. Tom Cruise has to fight Henry Cavill in helicopters and then fistfight him to death on a mountain.

    They also do a HALO jump through a thunderstorm. Also, there are nukes. This is a great action movie.

    It had:

    - Hero with a tragic backstory
    - Cops looking at B&W surveillance photos of shady dudes in jackets getting out of cars
    - A Nathan Drake "Use SIXAXIS to walk across the plank" perilous tightrope walk over fire
    - The Rock jumping off of one really tall thing onto another really tall thing
    - Initially antagonistic police chief who comes around in the end
    - A climactic action scene in a hall of mirrors
    - The Rock killing…

    I never understand what anyone's motives are, who anyone works for, or what's happening in any given scene, but it was really cool when he climbed that really tall building, used that weird sneaky screen wall, and fell in that car at the end.

    It's worse than you'd expect it to be.

  • Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    ★★★★

    I understood roughly 5% of what was happening, but everything looked cool and there was a ton of cool action spy shit.

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★½

    After trying to like a lot of these Marvel movies and not being able to, I wanted to give this one a shot. People told me it was more of a comedy than a typical Marvel movie, which I figured could be good or bad considering how much I've disliked the humor and dialogue of the others.

    Luckily, the humor lands more often than not and the cast seems to be having a lot of fun with this one. Didn't…

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★½

    Totally watchable movie with a bunch of dinosaurs. Human characters were pretty one-dimensional and it was pretty corny at times, but whatever. That indoraptor looked cool as hell.

  • Upgrade

    Upgrade

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie isn't an all-time classic or anything, but it pretty much checks all the boxes I want out of most movies.

    - Bad thing happens to good guy at beginning.
    - Good guy spends rest of movie getting revenge on bad guys.
    - Bad guys die in hilarious and violent ways.

    Not a hard formula to follow, but a lot of action movies somehow fuck this up. This one even checked the bonus box of having a dark ending,…
