    ★★★½

    Simple, brutal, effective. Some complain about repetitiveness but I was never bored and found the pacing fast enough. My only complaint was the ending which tried to be too philosophical for the simple metaphor that the majority of the movie embodied.

    ★★★

    Unfortunately, this didn't work for me as much as it seems to do for most others. There is one plot hole that is too substantial to overlook, also the plot twist is predictable. The action scene bored me. But the ending was satisfying and Moss was solid.

    Ready or Not

    ★★★½

    Fun horror-comedy that could have used a couple more deaths, this way it drags at times. Samara Weaving is spot on as always but has had more to do in previous projects. Here she mostly screams like a pig on its way to the slaughterhouse. Overall, I had fun and got what I expected, although be warned - the best deaths are shown in the trailer.

    Mapplethorpe

    ★★

    A routine biopic that sucked all life, creativity and edge out of Mapplethorpe. Just showing his photography is not enough to make the film provocative or interesting which is what he would have deserved. This film makes it seem like we're still stuck in the prudish censorship-friendly past... and maybe we are.
