    Writer: Leigh Whannell; H.G. Wells (based on the story)
    Main Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, Oliver Jackson-Cohen

    I have seen a fair amount of Universal Monsters films, both old and new, and I have to say that, while I mildly enjoy most of them, my favourite one remains James Whale's The Invisible Man. Not only does it…

  • Tender

    Tender

    Very proud to finally share my first proper student project filmed for a documentary course at Solent University in Southampton. It is called Tender, and it is a short look at romance and dating apps in the modern age, featuring a poetic sequence starring Tom Keenan and Alannah Christianson. The music is an original composition made primarily by Dominic Spennewyn, with the help of Renato Francisco.

    Many thanks to all those who helped with its production and gave me feedback.…

    Main Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Paola Nuñez, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Kate del Castillo, Nicky Jam, Joe Pantoliano, Theresa Randle

    ★★

    Original Title: Blood Hunters: Rise Of The Hybrids
    Year of Release: 2020

    Director: Vincent Soberano
    Writer: Vincent Soberano
    Main Cast: Sarah Chang, Monsour Del Rosario, Vincent Soberano, Ian Ignacio, Roxanne Barcelo

    I was kindly sent a press screener of this film by its distributor, which is a nice thing in and of itself. Unfortunately, this also makes criticizing the film harder, though one has to be fair when reviewing something they have been sent.

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★★

    Right now I got to tell you about the fabulous, most groovy experience of the year:

    74th Venice Film Festival. The man himself, Edgar Wright, was a member of the main jury. Knowing that, I set out immediately to see him, and on my first day (August 30th) I saw him with the rest of the jury members (including Annette Benning and Rebecca Hall). I was stunned, and stood still, with my mouth wide open. I thought it could never…

  • Dragged Across Concrete

    Dragged Across Concrete

    ★★★★½

    Original Title: Dragged Across Concrete
    Year of Release: 2018
    Genres: Crime; Thriller; Drama; Dark Comedy
    Director: S. Craig Zahler
    Writer: S. Craig Zahler
    Main Cast: Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Tory Kittles, Michael Jai White

    Zahler continues to impress as writer-director, delivering a third feature film that is grand in scope (sometimes to a fault) and engaging from beginning to end. The multiple storylines are analyzed in great detail before bringing them together in the explosive third act, crafting compelling and…
