    Halloween

    ★★★½

    The first Halloween is pretty good. Honestly, there's not alot for me to say here, Michael Myers is a creepy, tension building antagonist, even if his teleportation makes no sense from Lauries point of view. There's a nice, simple plot, Michael escapes from prison and goes around killing people who live near his old home, and he runs into Laurie Strode. Speaking of, Laurie is...fine. She doesn't get a character arc or anything but she's a serviceable protagonist who I…

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★★

    At the time of writing this, I watched Venom 2 yesterday, and already most of it has faded from my memory. It's just not very memorable. Don't get me wrong, it's dumb and it's fun and it's silly - exactly what a Venom movie should be, just not a good movie. The plot focuses mainly on Carnage, who is just Riot from the first film, but red. It's Cletus who steals the show with how weird and messed up he…

    Squid Game

    ★★★★½

    Honestly, I loved squid game! There's so many little details and Easter eggs that really help you appreciate just how much effort went into writing this show. The set design is incredible, most of the characters have reasons for being in the game that you can understand and relate to, which makes it even more heartbreaking knowing only one of them can and will survive. As for the games themselves, they're extremely tense to watch as you honestly don't know…

    Monsters, Inc.

    ★★★★

    Monsters Inc is so much fun. Like, really fun. I wasn't bored for a single second of this film. I think most of that comes from how lovable of a character Sully is. Just the expression work alone is enough to get me to smile in some scenes. His relationship with Boo, the heart and soul of the film, is excellent and heartwarming. Watching Sully grow to care for Boo is just straight up adorable and really well written. Mike,…

  • Brave

    Brave

    ★★½

    Brave has so much wasted potential. Having mordu kill the dad at the start would justify why the mum is such a piece of crap. Plus, having his backstory explained also makes the protagonists arc more meaningful as she sees the parallels between herself and mordu. Anyway, brave is fine. There's some great looking scenes, cute moments with the bear scenes, and the dad is great. Merideth has an OK arc I guess. Honestly just a nothing film.

  • The Guilty

    The Guilty

    ★★★½

    I really liked the guilty! Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, the guilty focuses on a 911 operator who has to balance the stress of his upcoming court case, with a mystery about a woman who has been abducted by her husband, and as well as being a compelling mystery, it also acts as a character study for jakes character, who he sees in this mystery woman. It's super compelling and takes place in just one room. There's honestly not much I can say about this, it's just 80 minutes of engagement.

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★½

    I was surprised by how solid Candyman is. It's not great by any means, but it's a fun horror movie, and unlike the 2021 version, it's actually scary! Firstly, the mystery is actually super fun to watch unfold and see characters react to Helens situation, even if we as the audience know she's innocent you can't really blame her husband for thinking she's a complete nutter. Honestly this is possibly one of the most unique ways of advocating black oppression…

    Candyman

    ★★

    At the time of writing this I haven't seen the original Candyman. I went into this thinking it was a reboot, not knowing it's a direct sequel to the 1992 version. Firstly, as a white person I struggle to comment on racial issues discussed in media, as I don't want to say anything offensive, but I think the directors message was advocated fairly well,it just stopped having any meaning halfway through the film when the horror elements became the primary…
