    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    The latest from Charlie Kaufman is extraordinarily difficult to review as it's an extraordinarily complex film. Or maybe not. It seems impenetrable but there are hints at a more simplistic explanation of everything throughout. The plot (I guess): A young couple, who haven't been together very long (Jessie Buckley and Jesse Plemons, both giving exceptional performances) take a trip to meet his parents on a very snowy day. What starts off as a fairly standard but mildly bizarre narrative turns…

    Zombieland: Double Tap

    Zombieland: Double Tap: Could easily be taught in a "How To Make a Good Sequel 101" class. 1) Stay true to the original but don't make the same movie again. 2) Raise the stakes. 3) Effectively introduce new characters. 4) If it's a comedy, amp up the jokes. Zombieland 2 does all of these things magnificently. Expands the universe, blitzes you with jokes, adds fun new characters and some really cool set pieces. I laughed harder than I have at any film in a long time. An absolute delight and I hope they don't take forever for a third.
