    ★★★★

    Surprisingly much better than the first one. A more varied plot (although not too deep), a mix of performances some of which were very fun, and a few moments that were really good.

    ★★★

    This is an utterly ordinary British children's film. Not very much for adults, a standard plot, and nothing that stood out.

    ★★★★

    I’ve meant to watch this Korean action horror for a long time, and finally got it on the list. This is exactly how I want creature features to go – not showing me the government / army type responses, but real people in the situation. It was done very well and a good lark.

    Not only was this a bad film with bad writing and a bad plot, but it was filled with an excess of male gaze and active misogyny. A film writer and director who drives multiple women crazy with desire for him? Do we see some self-insertion from the writer/director going on?


    Avoid at all costs.
