Any and all recommendations welcomed!
Favourites are the last four movies I rated above 4 stars.
Rad. Dan Trachtenberg confirms his place as the king of reviving seemingly deceased franchises as taut, thematically sound survival thrillers. Give him a Terminator next.
Love that the Predator at this point is just a competitive asshole with access to an ACME phone.
Convincing cgi animals are still sadly out of reach.
An excruciating experience. Bold for the creative team to have never watched an episode of Scooby Doo in prep.
There's a lovely, genuinely funny moment around three quarters of the way through where Scooby steals and chomps down the last scooby snack the gang have to bribe the big scary baddie before muttering 'I'm so weak' and hanging his head in shame... barely a breath is taken before a robot dog flies across the frame shooting laser beams and rockets…
Wee bit gutted about this one. Never quite lives up to its own ambition.
There's a lot of breathtaking action that lives up to the hype, practical effects and stunts galore, great performances (although Kenneth Branagh is woefully miscast) and a banging score can't save it from feeling like a convoluted, at times pretentious, sprawl.
