    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★½

    Last Night In Soho is a head rush of a film: exciting, creepy, and glamorous. It’s an instant horror classic from Edgar Wright.

    Aspiring designer Eloise is in her first year of fashion school in London. She doesn’t fit in with the rest of the students due to her fixation on the glamorous world of 1960s Soho. When she rents a room in a vintage bedsit she begins to have visions of a nightclub singer named Sandie and a technicolour…

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★½

    The Suicide Squad is a fantastic blend of comic book silliness with ultraviolence. There have been R-rated superhero movies before but rarely one this fun.

    The story follows a group of Z-list supervillains who are recruited to perform a shady covert operation for the US government, with mercenaries Bloodsport and Peacemaker as their nominal leaders. The mission takes them to a remote island in order to destroy a secret military research site called Project Starfish. To give further details would…

    The Kingmaker

    ★★★★

    The Kingmaker is the story of ruthless and narcissistic Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, and her family’s attempts to work their way back into power after her husband’s overthrow.

    Imelda was the wife of the corrupt Ferdinand Marcos, who ruled the country between 1965-1986. In interviews she comes across as caring, generous, and eccentric, but the documentary reveals the more sinister aspects of her and her husband's rule; in particular the theft of billions from the…

    The Weekend Away

    ★★½

    The Weekend Away is what you would get if you remade The Hangover as a low-budget Netflix thriller, with even worse people as the main characters.

    Everywoman Kate and rich snob Beth are holidaying in Croatia, in order to escape the former’s dull marriage and the latter’s recent divorce. After a wild, dimly-remembered night of partying Kate awakens to find that Beth has gone missing. She attempts to investigate what happened to her friend, helped by a taxi driver who…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★½

    The second Conjuring sequel is a classically creepy story whose strong atmosphere picks up the slack for its over-the-top elements. The film has the good filmmaking of the core entries of the series despite James Wan being absent from the driver’s seat.

    The story begins with the Warren couple investigating a family struggling with demon possession. After their initial attempt to help goes horribly wrong, the paranormal investigators begin to suspect that a curse has been laid on the family…

    The Fly

    ★★★★★

    The Fly blends horror and existential drama into something poetic and tragic. The story goes far beyond its B-movie premise while remaining a pure shot of gruesome 80s Cronenberg.

    The plot is similar to the original 1950s science fiction film, although the execution is very different. Seth Brundle is a brilliant scientist working on a teleportation device which could make all other forms of transport obsolete. After becoming involved with a journalist and her scheming boss an accident occurs which…
