    Black Adam

    ★★

    Despite everything I heard, I still wasn’t prepared for quite how terrible this was.

    And yet… I kinda had fun with this anyway?

    It was nice to watch something from DC that isn’t just Batman or Superman. I actually thought this was well cast and I liked how these characters were realised.

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

    While Lou Bloom's story may not be the most original, the quality of Nightcrawler's filmmaking sets it above and beyond pretty much all of the others. Stylishly filmed with a blend of film and digital, this is an impossibly smart and endlessly on point satire that effortlessly weaves around the usual traps and pitfalls of this genre and carries us, utterly invested, through to the end.

    It also helps that Lou is played beautifully by the man of a thousand…
