  • Overlord

    Overlord

    ★★★½

    Overlord is BADASSS. Inconsequential action-packed arrangements? Intense, edging moments? Accessive war + gore violence? Guliable, yet, likable stereotype characters? Imprudent torture? Science-Fiction?  Retrogressions to John Carpenter's The Thing? Nazi super-zombies? An evil, mad scientist's wide-ranging laboratory? Negligible popcorn-fun? Chivalry? YES, PLEASE! (Verdict: B) 

    Mathilde Ollivier is low-key Rebecca Ferguson

    Overlord starring Kurt Russell's son.

    2018 is done folks. It has been terminated, no más, concluded, end…

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★

    Mission Impossible: Fallout is a two-and-a-half-hour action heavy eruption that definitively feels like its only an hour long, thanks to its non-stop pace, and intensified joy-ride formula. The spy espionage twist and turns act out as remarkably clever plot pieces—that were certainly crowd-pleasing—and seemingly outdue the previous films' cunning endeavors. Just the commitment and passion that the filmmakers, crew, and cast have devoted into this entry especially when it comes to the action concepts and sequences—which are rightly accomplished stylishly—are…
