    The Man Who Skied Down Everest

    ★★★★½

    Tremendous stuff. The line between poetry and reality is blurred to wonderful effect. Fans of Ichikawa's Tokyo Olympiad, the Qatsi trilogy, and Sans Soleil would find a lot to love here. It doesn't quite stick the landing, but the journey is incredible and maybe, just maybe, that's the point. 8.5/10

    Woof. Blumhouse gonna Blumhouse. A reasonably solid turn from Mason Thames is severely let down by a half baked, dreadful script. Madeline McGraw is hung out to dry with her ridiculously sassy, salty dialogue. While the film looks good, it doesn't have much going for it beyond that. I wanted to like it, I really did, but it comes off as the lazy lovechild of Stranger Things and The Lovely Bones. 3.5/10

    I cannot believe this is the same son of Malick that gave us George Washington. The script is DREADFUL. I mean, there are moments I actually cringed in embrassment for the actors and the lines they were delivering (poor Jamie Lee and her self-injecting scene). I just can't believe the trajectory that Green's career has taken. Odd. All that aside, if you don't grade it as a Green jam, there are SOME merits. The score by daddy and son Carpenter…

    What do you get if you throw Mann, Yip, Woo, To and QT in the blender? You get this wonderful throwback. Benny Chan turns back the clock, to the glory days of Hong Kong cinema with Raging Fire. Watching it made me long for the 80s-00s. A beautiful send off for Chan, who sadly passed away as the film was finishing. High recommend from me. Also? DAT PIANO SLIDE. 8.25/10
