  • Krampus

    Krampus

    ★★★

    A boy who has a bad Christmas ends up accidentally summoning a festive demon to his family home.
    Routinely made, but not quite original Christmas horror tale; folkloristically a very tall tale at that.

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★

    In 1970s Los Angeles, a mismatched pair of private eyes investigate a missing girl and the mysterious death of a porn star.
    Entertaining, but superficial reimagination of a 70s buddy comedy thriller works well with period detail and Crowe and Gosling surprisingly are up to the task, but the plot is incoherent and not too interesting; Angourie Rice is the true star of the movie playing Gosling's astute daughter.

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet, and after searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them.
    Superbly directed and highly suspenseful sci-fi thriller, the decrepit spaceship design and especially the truly abhorrent creation of the alien still influence sci-fi and horror movies to this day.

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner

    ★★★★

    A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
    Groundbreaking sci-fi thriller in noir style with a coherent bleak vision of the future, perfectly designed, still achieves to amaze even today.
