    Gods of Egypt

    ★★½

    Beyond kitsch. The film's saving grace is that it doesn't take itself too serious. Gods of Egypt is an expensive Hollywood fantasy/adventure set in Ancient Egypt. The kind of film where every scene needs to be bigger and more explosive than the previous one and CG appears to be the answer to everything.

    7 Up

    ★½

    The first entry is somewhat of an introduction. It follows a bunch of kids from different walks of life and asks them what they think their future will look…
