    Knives Out

    ★★★★

    Not a fantastic twist, but interesting enough to keep me until the end. Rian Johnson knows how to make good movies, it's a possible franchise we don't know we need it.

  • Impetigore

    Impetigore

    ★★★

    The first few scenes are undoubtedly good. However, it fails to deliver this whole 'tricky' story in consistent quality after the first 30 minutes. Casting Ario Bayu for that role is probably the real twist.
