    Moonfall

    The moon is falling out of orbit and will destroy earth.....................is what the plot would have been if made 20-25 years ago but this is 2022 and the era of Marvel so Roland Emmerich has stuck an absurd alien threat plot twist in there just to complicate matters.

    The Predator

    Oh dear.
    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

    I could just leave it at that as a review as it just about sums up my feelings on this, to put it mildly, ill-advised entry into the perennially disappointing Predator franchise.

    A Predator ship crash lands conveniently right into the middle of an American black ops mission in deepest, darkest South America.
    Captain Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) is the only man to survive and presumably due to his lack of faith…
