    The Gray Man


    Sometimes you just want to watch Ana De Armas run around with a rocket launcher, Chris Evans play a douche again and see Ryan Gosling load a handgun one handed.

  • Prey



    A lot of reviews here have (rightly) trumpeted the fact that this would have killed it with a theatrical release. I agree. This is the best movie in the franchise since the original.

    That said, watching this in half hour bursts as I adjust to life with a newborn baby was my viewing experience. It still kicked ass.

    A heady brew. Starts off as a social drama detailing the troubles of an isolated village in Northern Brazil before bringing in elements of The Most Dangerous Game, grindhouse and early John Carpenter. Also includes:

    - Udo Kier
    - Hallucinogens
    - Drones disguised as UFOs
    - A capoeira sequence set to sythnwave
    - A Bolsanaro like figure being ridiculed at every turn.
    - Nudity in all of its non-airbrushed glory.

    Solid and enjoyable effort. It does enough differently to separate it from its forebears, but not enough to be the saviour of the genre some have touted it as.
