    Hook

    ★★★½

    I never saw this film as a child, so is it surprising that I actually did enjoy this film? In many ways Hook is just a cliche and run of the mill 90s family movie but the lavish production design, very good casting for the adult roles, and the interesting concept made this an enjoyable movie for me, though I can understand not liking this film.

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★★½

    Fede Alvarez's effectively tense and horrifying direction adds to the terrifying performance of Stephen Lang as the blind man who fights back against a trio of young adults who break into his home in search of some cash to make a better life for…
