    Red Sparrow

    ★★★½

    I did not have high expectations and was not sure if it was going to be another Atomic Blonde or something else.

    It is very much something else, very much a cold war era style spy thriller and while it was good it is very slow and I think the issue is that it is not sure what it wants to focus on, the "Spy Training" or the "Spy Story".

    Overall it has issues but I like Jennifer Lawrence and she is very good in this film.

    Bates Motel

    ★★½

Now the copy I saw was a shocking TV scan on youtube and that did not help it. But still there was so much set up and about 80 minutes in you get the first "weekly" story and it feels like it comes out of nowhere. Now it comes from a really random…
