    The Kid Who Would Be King

    ★★★★½

    This is an absolute blast — clever, funny, heartwrenching — and a sometimes not-so-subtle invective against Brexit, oligarchy, and ethnonationalism. There is little not to love about this film.

    Amazing Grace

    ★★★★½

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

    This was phenomenal; some of the behind-the-scenes stuff was great. (And somehow they even captured some of the creepiness of Aretha’s father.)

    Thor

    ★½

    If his Murder on the Orient Express didn’t exist, I’d say this was peak Kenneth Branagh: ponderous dialog, overacting, languorous cinematography, and a running time at least 30 minutes too long.

    There are a few really great scenes, though, especially those that feature Thor as a fish out of water.

    After watching Thor again, it’s all the more striking how brilliant Taika Waititi’s work on Thor: Ragnarok is.
