    The Meg

    ½

    There is no other way to describe this film. The acting is laughable. The CGI, the writing, plot, it's just bad. What has happened to Hollywood? Seriously.

    This movie was so corny and cheesy. Lines were lame I just laughed throughout the movie. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. I guess Jason Statham really needed the money.

    Hollow Triumph

    ★★★½

    Irony Noir. What an ending. You can’t escape your fate. Out of the frying pan, into the fire. Alternative title: "The Scar".

    Lighting was fantastic. "Hollow Triumph" is a very fine example of film noir. It is tough, gritty, full of duplicity, and identities that shift across screen time. But what really makes this film sing is the vivid low-key photography of John Alton. Dark sets lit with single light sources, bizarre angles and strong uses of deep focus compositions…
