    The Strangers: Prey at Night

    ★★★★½

    I remember really liking the first strangers film. This one was a really fun time at the cinema and as good as the other one for me. 

    I liked the fact it didn’t totally rely on jump scares and was quite creepy and quite disturbing at times. It had a great nostalgic soundtrack to match its clear influences from that era of horror films. 

    It’s certainly really silly at times but it’s just a fun watch and sometimes that is exactly what the cinema needs.

    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

    ★★★★

    It’s got one of the worst titles I think I’ve heard. Funnily enough they do reference how much of a mouthful it is in the film. 

    It’s a really well made film with an intriguing story that is told economically as it goes. Didn’t expect much from this but it was really good. I really just needed something to fill the gap at the cinema after work before the odeon scream unseen. Quite the double bill I suspect!

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★½

    A really simple but clever concept that worked well. I had no idea what this was about going in and was pleasantly surprised by this. A real solid wee horror thriller with a bit of heart to it. 

    By the way, how good would it be to get some of those creatures into our cinemas to sort out the knuckle draggers that sit with their noisy huge bags of rustly crunchy foods that they stuff into their faces between their chats to their other noisy friends!

    Ready Player One

    ★★★½

    This is jam packed with movie and game references along with a nice score and some good song choices. Clearly made by a film fan for film fans and it almost worked. The aesthetic didn't quite work for me though and was perhaps a slightly too long.

    It was like wreck it ralph meets minority report and wee sprinkling of stay tuned.

    Good entertainment though and plenty to like in there. This young Spielberg chap is certainly one to watch!
