    22 Bullets

    ★★

    Even with solid performances by the entire cast, the story is very generic and cliched, with moments that aim for realism that are quickly undercut with impossible actions. The film is very violent, yet you cannot make out most of it since every action scene is shot with shaky cam for no real reason, and the editing is pretty bad. At least they used squibs and other practical effects.

    As a big fan of gimmicky movies (Boyhood being filmed over the course of twelve years, Birdman filmed to…

    Hush

    ★★★★

    There is something so terrifying about home invasions: being attacked in our safe haven, feeling vulnerable in our most cherished place, not being able to escape... These are some reasons why I have a soft spot for this subgenre, and Hush also adds to the mix two other things I really love: villains with unknown motivations/who are purely evil, and characters with disabilities that you can experience thanks to movie magic.

    The movie is mostly silent, since the protagonist is…
