  • Predator

    Predator

    ★★★★★

    Still the greatest testosterone-fuelled action-horror ever made.

    And it will never look better than it does on 4K.

    5 "Turn Around"s for Predator.

  • Extraction

    Extraction

    ★★★

    Short Review: It has a killer "one"-shot action sequence.

    Slightly Longer Review: The action sequences are extremely well orchestrated from the stunt coordinator of many Marvel films, but everything else about this latest Netflix "blockbuster" is poor to bog-standard. I guess in relation to most Netflix blockbusters, this one is pretty good, but in no way, shape or form does it rival something like the John Wick series of films ...

  • Just Mercy

    Just Mercy

    ★★★½

    A powerful, if at times drawn out, film which initially evokes anger and horror before instilling a sense of hope for a better future.

    3.5 Unbelievably Racist Decisions for Just Mercy.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★★

    A viciously fun film which has an impressively unpredictable first half hour before settling down into being more paint by numbers.

    Betty Gilpin is great as the lead and the final fight scene she features in is worth the price of admission alone. But The Hunt is not sharp or witty enough for the satirical elements to truly work, and the film definitely peaks too early in terms of its gory kills.

    3 Glass Doors Still Standing for The Hunt.

    Crawl

    ★★

    Things I learned while watching Crawl:

    - Florida state police officers do not bother pursuing people who directly and brazenly ignore their explicit orders.
    - Basements below ground level do not flood until it is narratively necessary for them to do so.
    - Alligators are all at least 9 feet long.
    - If any alligators smaller than 9 feet long do exist, they most certainly do not venture into basements where their smaller size would enable them to crawl under…

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★½

    It's an all too rare event when a film lives up to the hype, but Mad Max: Fury Road proves that such a thing can and does happen.

    Co-written and directed by the creator of the original three films, George Miller, and reportedly years (beyond the norm) in the making, Fury Road is quite simply a labour of love from a 70 year old who has time and again delivered diverse, innovative films. And Fury Road may just be the…
