    Killers of the Flower Moon


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Killers of the Flower Moon examines uncool, pathetic evil, and the lengths people will go for a buck.

    Leonardo De Caprio’s Ernest Burkhard is a good-hearted idiot working as a cab driver in the Osage Nation. The Osage, the narration informs us, are the richest people per capita in America because of their territory’s oil wealth. He falls in love with Mollie (Lily Gladstone), a native woman and heiress to a fortune.

    Presiding over everything is his uncle William Hale…

  • Glass Onion

    Glass Onion


    Glass Onion is a witty postmodern murder mystery. It is as intricate as its predecessor Knives Out, although the plot takes twists which almost fly off the edge of suspension of disbelief.

    Detective Benoit Blanc has cabin fever from coronavirus lockdown, and has spent several weeks without leaving his bath. He gets an invitation to attend a murder mystery party on a billionaire’s private island, the titular Glass Onion, with a group of famous 'disrupters' and socialites.

    Somewhat predictably Benoit’s…

    The Fall of the House of Usher


    This darkly funny Edgar Allan Poe adaptation is some of Mike Flanagan’s nastiest work. It lacks sympathetic and well-rounded characters, trading them for cynicism, high camp and a blunt attack on the 1%.

    As the series begins, Roderick Usher, the patriarch of the Usher family, is mourning the deaths of his six children. All of the scions of his family died with two weeks of each other in bizarre, suspicious circumstances.

    He invites his nemesis, detective August Dupin, to hear…

  • Talk to Me

    Talk to Me


    Talk to Me is a chilling film about teenagers, trauma and a hand which summons ghosts. Also, drugs.

    Mia (Sophie Wilde) is a young Australian girl recovering from her mother's death two years before. Her social life revolves around drinking and partying with her circle of friends, and her close relationship with the family of Jade (Alexandra Jensen), on whose boyfriend she has a secret crush.

    One night, someone brings a heavier kick than usual- an enamel hand which draws…

    Last Night in Soho


    Last Night In Soho is a head rush of a film: exciting, creepy, and glamorous. It’s an instant horror classic from Edgar Wright.

    Aspiring designer Eloise is in her first year of fashion school in London. She doesn’t fit in with other students due to her fixation on 1960s Soho. When she rents a room in a vintage bedsit she begins to have visions of a nightclub singer named Sandie and a technicolour version of the past. Soon the shadows…

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad


    The Suicide Squad is a fantastic blend of comic book silliness with ultraviolence. There have been R-rated superhero movies before but rarely one this fun.

    The story follows a group of Z-list supervillains who are recruited to perform a shady covert operation for the US government, with mercenaries Bloodsport and Peacemaker as their nominal leaders. The mission takes them to a remote island in order to destroy a secret military research site called Project Starfish. To give further details would…
