    ★★★

    A couple whose relationship is on the rocks find their last-ditch romantic getaway interrupted, first by an older couple with their own baggage, then by apocalyptic cephalopod-based body horror. Some great visuals and appropriately nasty squick, but the "character development" half of the film never really meshes with the "running from monsters" half. Very good performances, but I found it hard to care about the characters. Once it gets going it's very effective though.

    ★★★★

    A DJ and a teenaged telephone operator stumble across an alien presence in the American southwest circa the '50s. Pretty typical in terms of plot, but the leads have great chemistry and the camera work and editing are very stylish. Several very long takes consisting of nothing but people talking, which normally bugs me, but it works here. A fun little sleeper.

    ★½

    This is pretty awful. It's like watching two hot people with no personalities who can't act pretend to have chemistry with each other, and every so often they have a parody of kinky sex with each other to relieve the monotony.
