    The Hills Have Eyes

    ★★½

    I’ve been meaning to see a Wes Craven movie for a while, and since The Hills Have Eyes was the only movie of his that I had access to, I decided to check it out. In terms of plot, it reminded me of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, since both movies feature groups of people fighting cannibal families.

Anyway, Paddington 2 works incredibly well as a sequel and as a standalone movie, as…
