Saw Jurassic World awhile back, expecting it to be decent. It kind of sucked.

Saw The Man from U.N.C.L.E. this week, expecting it to suck. It...was actually pretty great?

There were some "darker and edgier" adjustments that had me groaning a little, but it was for the most part respectful of the source material, with plenty of A+ snark and bickering between the leads. Lots of action, lots of giggles, and I wanted all of the major antagonist's clothes. The sheer size of Armie Hammer takes some getting used to, but by the end of the movie all I wanted was for giant Illya to cradle me gently in his enormous hands.

It's worth a watch if you're a fan of the TV series, or even if you're just down for a spy movie that doesn't take itself too, too seriously.

I got to see Napoleon and Illya mock each other's fashion sense, and that alone would've been worth it.
