    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★

    Both a pale shadow of its influences (almost entirely absent the ‘mild peril’ that makes them so memorable) and so close to the Platonic ideal of a theme-park movie. The blatant artificiality of the environment even helps in regard to the latter.

  • Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage

    Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage

    ★★★½

    The term for it wasn’t in the mainstream cultural consciousness at the time, but toxic masculinity is exactly what it is, and it was all over this event like the mud and shit on the ground — from the organisers down.

    The Tomorrow War

    ★½

    Half this movie is dreary combat porn for FPS heads. The other half’s a bunch of cut scenes to spout dodgy totalitarian philosophy. Threaded through it is a plot that rips off everything from the Alien prequels to Arrival, of all things. The whole endeavour’s calculatedly cynical, without an ounce of wit to it.

    ★★★

    J-pop pretty boys in Sons-of-Anarchy-meet-The Warriors gang battles? OK I’m in.
