    Prey

    ★★★★½

    I'm thinking noone expected that 35 years after the original "Predator" we're all going to get possibly the best sequel in the entire franchise and it'll be released in the format that's 2022's equivalent of direct-to-video. Wow...

    "Prey" ticks off every single prerequisite that's anticipated from a film like this - the survival atmosphere of the age of "The Hunters and The Hunted"; a charismatic and memorable main character (Amber Midthunder knocks it out the park); just as charismatic and…

So, even though my intuition was warning me like crazy, cause it's a very mainstream movie, the main leading actor is pretty much a Chinese Justin Bieber and the…

    Ip Man 4: The Finale

    I've enjoyed the previous 3 films in the Ip Man series. When I heard that a 4th one was going to be made, even though it felt like a cash-grabbing venture, I still got excited about seeing Donnie Yen reprise the role for a final time. Little did I know that this fourth film would be just as much a weapon of nationalistic propaganda as it is a way to earn some quick cash for its stars and crew.
