    Extraction

    ★★

    The recently much talked about Extraction movies, is a poor man’s John Wick to be perfectly honest. It has a kill count to match and a lot of glorified violence, but really doesn’t possess any of the aesthetic and style John Wick has and probably deserves to be a straight to streaming service movie (not just taking into account today’s climate).

    The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man (2020) is what you get when you have a director who has great understanding for the source material and the genre as a whole. We all remember how poorly constructed the Tom Cruise Mummy film was, ran by a studio obsessed with the dollars as opposed to respecting the classic character it was adapting, this feels so much more sincere, yet brutally brilliant and being something original. Elisabeth Moss is outstanding in the lead role here and…
