    Attack the Block

    ★★★★

    I wish more films would take a leaf out of Attack the Block's book by staying small scale and really focusing in on character and setting. I feel like bigger films worry that if they don't make everything the biggest and best thing you've ever seen and deliver massive twists round every corner that the audience will get bored. But Attack the Block proves this isn't true - it takes an alien invasion and plonks it in a small setting…

    ★★

    A story about a straight white male serial killer murdering and unclothing beautiful white women due to intense infatuation - how original! It's not like we've seen this hundreds of times before…

    Why does media have an obsession with watching men kill good-looking women and doing weird stuff with their naked bodies? We never see stories where male victims are stalked, obsessed over, murdered in dark alleyways then dragged around, undressed, mutilated and/or violated the way female victims so often…
