• The Night Clerk

    The Night Clerk

    ★★½

    There was a decent crime thriller buried underneath this bit it didn't surface because they wanted Tye Sheridan to be rain man instead. The film itself is well put together and Ana de Armas owns the screen as usual. The story is of an autistic hotel night clerk witnessing a murder and becoming the suspect. Its plays well but can't decide what type of film it wants to be. Enjoyable but ultimately middle of the road / straight to Netflix fodder

  • Run

    Run

    ★★★

    Run is a tense watch (Misery is an inspiration, there's even a character called Kathy Bates) A smart girl who is kept in isolation, is suspicious of her mother keeping secrets from her. This is a decent thriller/horror (despite some flaws) with some good twists and I can see why the ending plays out as it does

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    Sound of Metal is a sensitive and poignant story of a drummers journey in dealing with hearing loss, who is caught between trying to fix or learning to adapt. Riz Ahmed gives a brilliant performance in this captivating film that is empathetic and evocative. The end is so impactful

  • Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    ★★★

    Standard run of the mill Tom Clancy action flick. Part of that universe of tlhve read the books. USA conspiracies, navy seals going rogue...it's, Jason Bourne / Mission Impossible etc without the tension and coherent plot. However itwass enjoyable for the action scenes

  • Made in Italy

    Made in Italy

    ★★

    Every cliché is here....you've seen this type of film before...it wasn't very good

  • The Assistant

    The Assistant

    ★★★½

    A powerful story about harassment, gaslighting and general ego driven patriarchy in the workplace, highlighting sexual harassment faced while working in the entertainment industry. It's slow paced and not in your face but it jabs at you enough to check yourself and your attitudes ✌🏾

  • Bad Trip

    Bad Trip

    ★★★½

    This got better as it went along. I'm not really a prabk show fan but had heard good things. It's ok, the pranks are cleverly done and the end credits are a good highlight of how people fell for them. It's not up there with say Borat but I found this enjoyable enough. Extra half star for the White Chicks movie nod

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★★

    I Care A lot is a solid watch. Everyone is an asshole, I wanted everyone to burn, it irritated me yet gripping viewing. Morally redundant people doing questionable things, in the name of care, while trampling on whoever to become rich. Oh, Rosamund Pike goes dark and is glorious!

  • Why Did You Kill Me?

    Why Did You Kill Me?

    ★★★½

    Why Did You Kill Me? A Netflix true crime documentary about a death of a girl in a drive by shooting in 2006. Her mum uses a fake MySpace account to seek justice and revenge. The lines get blurred but it's riveting viewing. I felt sorry for the girls cousin however. Solid watch

  • Love and Monsters

    Love and Monsters

    ★★★

    Love and Monsters. Premise: The world is destroyed, 95% of the population wiped out, all that survives are small groups of people and insects that have mutated into giant monsters. Dude risks the monsters to find his girlfriend. It's not great, an easy evening Sunday watch✌🏾

  • A Little More Flesh II

    A Little More Flesh II

    ★★★½

    A Little More Flesh II was an unsettling, creepy watch about exploitation of women by men in movies. The score & dialogue juxtaposed with what you see, forces you to watch (voyeuristically) and question what's going on, letting your mind fill in the blanks

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★½

    Promising Young Woman is a fantastically powerful film. It looks at the effects of female trauma, brought on by douchebag guys. It's clever & darkly funny in places. A very important film that's devastating in its delivery but also moving in what transpires. The ending was superb
