    “Now, tell me, do you remember anything?” 🦿

    Sadly, audiences won’t remember much from this dull, run-of-the-mill superhero flick. Squandering an intriguing premise for a drab 108 minute runtime, the cliché-ridden screenplay is less self-aware and much dumber than it believes itself to be, resulting in little substance and an inconsistent tone that reeks of another box-office bomb, John McTiernan’s ‘Last Action Hero’. Attempting to send…

    From Dusk Till Dawn

    ★★★

    “Peachy, Kate. The world's my oyster, except for the fact that I just rammed a wooden stake in my brother's heart because he turned into a vampire, even though I don't believe in vampires. Aside from that unfortunate business, everything's hunky-dory.” 🦶

    Holding audiences hostage for a wild 108 minutes, this gory genre-bending spectacle from dream pairing Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino achieved immediate cult status upon release. Each having a chip on their shoulder in the wake of scathing…

    “Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse.” 🩸

    Developing a cult following for its terrific set design, gruesome sadomasochist iconography and otherworldly Lovecraftian themes, this $60 million cosmic horror shoots for the stars as ‘The Shining in space’, but slips into a worse dimension with a frustrating sci-fi spin on Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. Plagued by many demons during a troubled production, such as its rushed editing schedule, unfinished CGI and poor sound mix, the film falls apart…

    “We're working very hard to find out where this virus came from. To treat it and to vaccinate against it if we can. We don't know all of that yet, we just don't know. What we do know, is that in order to become sick you have to first come in contact with a sick person or something that they touched. In order to get scared, all you…

    “Come on! KG. This is no different than that. This is me. All right? I'm not a f**kin' athlete, this is *my* f**kin' way. This is how *I* win. All right?” 💎

    Equal parts exhausting and electrifying, you won’t need a cup of coffee before strapping in for this heart-palpating New York City thriller. Building on bricks laid by their raw, ugly work in 2017’s Good Time, the Safdie Brothers’ uncompromising vision for anxiety-inducing cinema is fully realised thanks to…
