    Outpost

    ★★★

    Outpost is a watchable little low budget movie with a random team of ex-soldiers employed by a mysterious money man to protect him on an unexplained mission in Eastern Europe. The soldiers are a diverse selection of characters/nationalities, kind of like a less “bro” version of the guys from Predator, and a few moments also reminded me of that film, though this is quite different overall; more of a slow build and less action, mainly a requirement of the small amount…

    The Straight Story

    ★★★★½

    A great wry sense of humour, gently moving (in more ways than one), and an oversized trailer of heart and soul. Perfect soundtrack too. I really enjoyed Alvin’s stubborn and unconventional but laid back journey and I’m glad it was made.

    Sicario

    ★★★★★

    A masterpiece of tension through expert direction of scenes where threat is all around but violence is unpredictable, sometimes exploding out of nowhere and other times menacing for excruciating periods before simmering down and letting us breath again.

    The actions carried out by the main protagonists in this bloody war are quite awe inspiring but also fairly terrifying and more than a little disturbing. Whatever it takes?

    Highly recommended.
