    There is absolutely nothing that can prepare a single soul for what they will witness in Jordan Peele's second film; Us. As anyone should expect, the film has twists and in true Jordan Peele fashion it goes in directions you wouldn't anticipate.

In 2018 there was the Oscar winning box office smash that spawned a billboard hot 100 #1 single - A Star Is Born. The ritualistic and sinister dance film graced with music by Thom Yorke - Suspiria. The cataclysmic power pop extravaganza that followed a troubled pop star on her descent to madness that built…

    The first time I watched Sicario I said "if Denis Villenueve hadn't made this movie, it wouldn't be good" and now I know that I was right
