    Scream

    ★★★½

    Wes is gone, but in true horro- I mean, sorry, Hollywood style, the Scream franchise lives on and returns to cinemas eleven years after the well-received fourth film in the series. This time around Ghostface is back terrorising a new group of kids in the American town with a murder rate second only to Haddonfield, but it isn't long before some familiar faces show up to add to the possible victim queue.

    The King's Man

    ★★★

    Matthew Vaughn’s third film in the Kingsman series is a massive mixed bag. 

    The first half of the film is a terrible mash-up of several different genres - thriller, comedy, action, and drama (with, eventually, war thrown in for good measure) - resulting in significant tonal and pacing issues. In one scene, Ralph Fiennes’ Oxford is preaching his moral passivity code to his son, and in almost the next, they’re setting Rasputin up to prey upon said 18 year old…

    Small Engine Repair

    ★★

    Very well acted, but this film based on a play is glacially paced with nothing beyond tedious character building taking place for the first hour and change.

    It is also intermittently described as a drama, thriller and black comedy, when in truth, it is really only the former.

    Very much not for me.

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★½

    Took the family to see this for a second time.

    The ending is still a massive example of dues ex machina at its finest, and I maintain that if you think too hard about the consequences of said ending, it all falls apart, but this is a fun, emotional and enjoyable Spider-Man film which is probably the best thing about Phase IV MCU so far.

    Crawl

    ★★

    Things I learned while watching Crawl:

    - Florida state police officers do not bother pursuing people who directly and brazenly ignore their explicit orders.
    - Basements below ground level do not flood until it is narratively necessary for them to do so.
    - Alligators are all at least 9 feet long.
    - If any alligators smaller than 9 feet long do exist, they most certainly do not venture into basements where their smaller size would enable them to crawl under…

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★★½

    NO SPOILERS AT ALL BELOW

    For several months now, Tenet has been proclaimed as the film which might just save the movie theatre industry. A 200 million dollar, original property blockbuster, written and directed by one of the most reliable names in Hollywood, Christopher Nolan. The hopes were that Nolan might deliver a film that was so incredible – so quintessential – to see on the big screen that it would tempt people from their homes, with their huge televisions…
