Terrifying, hilarious & legitimately jaw-dropping at points, An American Werewolf in London largely succeeds on every level, from its stunning practical effects to its high quality performances, it’s an unforgettable feature in the horror genre, a true classic, and quite possibly one of my personal favorites.
Bad times indeed.
While the film manages to build up a tremendous amount of momentum towards its second half, it ultimately falls flat. The quality in writing takes a *huge* drop and many elements of the plot that work, are overused. To put it simply, it’s a mess, and its ending is marginally predictable and disappointingly unsatisfactory. Additionally, in its attempt to perhaps pay homage to or draw inspiration from Tarantino’s distinct directorial style, Bad Times at the El Royale fails, epicly, in more ways than one.
Powerful, thought-provoking & bold, Blackkklansman is a timely message about the past & current state of America. Although a serious take with a darker back drop for the film, it does have its fair share of humorous moments. This politically & racially driven endeavor is a lot of fun to watch.
The film is a bold stand against racism & oppression, rather than a plead. It firmly gets its point across without feeling too pressed, due to the lack of subtlety in its premise.…
