    ★★★★★

    A film so grand in scope and rich in its dreamlike storytelling, in which Dennis Villeneuve is able to elevate an already thoughtful material with his vision. A scene isn't just a scene, it's an event with methodical build-up to it and Dennis achieves this without losing the intimate sensibilities. The cinematography is so boldly uncommon for a film like this one, yet it is fitting to the shadowy and vulnerable universe. Pretty faithful, yet the subtle changes allow this to be a unique self-discovery film. Dennis Villeneuve has done it once again.

    The Mummy

    ★★

    A big, clumsily told spectacle that is increasingly bizarre with the presence of Tom Cruise. Seriously miscast and watching a legend deliver dialogue that laughable and acting as a generic Hollywood lead is just odd. A famous Hollywood Chris would have been a more fitting choice for such forgettable material.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Not sure if Mission: Impossible – Fallout is the best action flick since Fury Road, but is still pretty damn good. After 5 movies it's really refreshing to see Ethan dealing with the consequences of previous missions, as that only elevates the stakes. It's a movie with gorgeous cinematography, with incredible stunts and an amazing supporting cast, as everyone brings something to the table. Vanessa Kirby and Henry Cavill are great additions to the cast. Michelle Monaghan comes back to…
