    The Lost City of Z

    ★★½

    The jungle stuff & the candle lit scenes are all gorgeous, but not enough to save this.
    It felt like 4 or 5 stories all squished in to a single, overlong, film.
    I really dug the parts in the jungle, there was a solid old-school adventure vibe, but it got very "rinse & repeat" after a while.
    By the end my missus & I were both wondering (& maybe hoping?) if it'd be better for the main characters to just hurry up and die in a ditch or trench already.
    A long (pretty) journey to nowhere.

    My favourite Christmas horror-sci-fi giallo with a killer robot.

    ★★★★

    The best , most scary, thing since, well, ever? Nope. Well shot, nicely crafty, unsettling at times and, yes, scary? Yup.

    Also, for the first 2/3 of the film that little kid was in a dead heat with the girl from Jurassic Park for "Most Annoying Child on Screen Ever".

    I, um,I, hmm, fuck was that?
    I dig it. I think. Like the most sleazy and nasty "tonight in a very special episode" episode of some forgotten 80s sitcom.
