Review: Bait (2019)

It’s an interesting idea, reviving the 16mm shot film, I’ll give them that. BAIT has to be the most unique film of 2019, first-time feature writer-director Mark Jenkin getting himself out there, in the UK and the film festival circuit … Continue reading

Review in Brief: El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019)

EL CAMINO is a decent epilogue to BREAKING BAD, but is far from the essential viewing its forbear was. Essentially Vince Gilligan has crafted an indulgently extended episode that ties up what few loose ends remained from the rise and … Continue reading

Review: Ready or Not (2019)

READY OR NOT is a good really time at the movies. No, it’s not revelatory or particularly groundbreaking or the next big thing, it’s just good and a lot of fun. As tradition dictates, any new member of the wealthy … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Arctic (2018/19)

What kind of a madman would star in both movies called POLAR and ARCTIC in the same year? A Mads-man, that’s who (excuse the pun, or don’t, I don’t care). Despite the etymologically similar titles they couldn’t be more different … Continue reading

Review: It Chapter Two (2019)

Two years have just flown by haven’t they? The first IT floated high above all expectations and had pretty much everyone clamoring for more. CHAPTER TWO is good…but only just. Stephen King’s novel isn’t an easy one to adapt and … Continue reading

Review: Crawl (2019)

This was pretty gnarly, as the kids used to say (probably). We’ve seen so many varied creature features from the paranoid 1950s to the invention of the blockbuster in the 1970s and the low-fi efforts of the 2000s. CRAWL is … Continue reading

Review in Brief: The Standoff at Sparrow Creek (2018/19)

You don’t tend to see chamber pieces about big men with guns, but that’s exactly what THE STANDOFF AT SPARROW CREEK is, which is pretty novel. Someone in this militia has opened fire at a cop’s funeral and everyone is … Continue reading
