    Captain Marvel

    ★★★★

    Satisfying. 

    Cockpit? Zap. Fight me like a man? Zap.

    A great sense of humour, especially in moments for fans. Brie Larson brings a perfect repotoire of bemused and determined. Totally invincible; I’m no longer worried about that whole Infinity Stone snafu from the last one.

  • Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho

    Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho

    ★★

    Too cult of personality for me. Should have watched a season of Community.

    Top Gun

    ★★★★★

    I've bought the DVD, the soundtrack, watched the making of and dreamed about Kelly McGillis more than one time. The film that did more for Air Force enlistments than anything else will do the same for you.

    If you've ever been holding on too tight with a bunch of oiled up dudes then you will lose your edge over Top Gun again and again.

  • Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

    Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

    ★★½

    What did I learn from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Let me see. There are a lot of BMWs in Dubai and Mumbai (coincidence?) and they have safety features you can trust, and cool start controls, and cool wheels and cool grill-lights, what? I haven't seen such gross product placement in a while. Oh yeah, and iPhones. iPhones are cool, iPads are cool, apparently USB cables are cool; but iPhones in rubberised cases? I guess they might knock them around…
