    The Old Guard

    ★★★

    ‪I’m supremely conflicted about THE OLD GUARD. Charlize Theron brings so much presence, commanding the cast into her orbit but the soundtrack was a weird choice, undercutting the action set pieces and the puppety villain feels like something plucked out from a Nickelodeon show. ‬


    Marwan Kenzari and Luca Marinelli as immortal lovers is too hot to handle and the while premise is fascinating, its fantastical/supernatural elements are undercooked. Could have worked best as a TV series.

    ★★½

    Just had another go at SINISTER with some wine and why did I think this movie was too scary? Sure, it had a killer score with creepy bits and Ethan Hawke really embodied the tics of a paranoid man but that was it. Ending was quite the letdown.

    ★★★★

    Absolutely love Chris Hemsworth in this. Great scares, good pacing and those variety of creature monsters.

  • Atlantics

    Atlantics

    ★★★

    Disappointing, but this directorial debut from French-Senegalese filmmaker Mati Diop has its charms: otherworldly, romantic, poetic, with benign horror elements.

    It’s been lauded as a “ghost love story” during its film festival run, and while the movie didn’t do much for me, the constant sound of the ocean waves crashing, and the haunting score, was beautiful.
