    Halloween

    ★★★

    I thought this was decent fun for a reboot. Crowd pleasing but not reliant on "remember this?" moments. Though of course there are a few of those moments, I didn't find many to be that obnoxious. Also the premise of the finale being that Jamie Lee Curtis gets to hunt Michael for revenge, is a decent mirror to the original Halloween.

    Not sure about the comedy in this, some of it is funny but it's weird to let actors just…

    This movie rules! Great practical effects, excellent pacing and the ideal amount of '80s cheese.

Despite the body horror, this is actually very charming with decent characters and good jokes.

    Just a very fun film as a whole, feels a bit like Gremlins but with a far darker edge.

    ★★

    I do like this film's ambitions to be a smart blockbuster, but it ends up feeling like a watered down version of a greater ideal (in this case: the graphic novel it is based on).

    I don't have too much good to specifically say about this film, but overall it does function as a decent blockbuster. It has its exciting moments and the core plot is interesting and mostly engaging. There's a few decent mindless action scenes as well. Hugo…
