Love the unexpected in films
Jackals was recommended to me by a few people on a Facebook group.
It was okay! I really like movies about home invasions, they stress me the most and the acting in this one was good, but the family’s decision-making were so dumb.
I feel like it had a lot of potential; the idea of a cult is great and the opening scene had the best utilisation of that. It’s a shame that for the rest of the film, the…
What. The. Fuck.
This may be the most disturbing short film I’ve ever watched. If you think Ari Aster’s movies like Midsommar and Hereditary are fucked up, think again. Part of me wished it had the runtime of a feature film, yet 29 minutes of this shocking content is enough. Wonderful acting from the entire cast though. This director sure loves a deranged family!
X has strong Texas Chainsaw Massacre vibes, but it was sexier and more “mature”… if you know, you know. A weird combo, yet winner for the horror genre I guess! Certainly a very disturbing movie.
I believe the gore was just enough, so the narrative and the suspense could also shine.
The only downside, in my opinion, is that Jenna Ortega was underused… she will become the next big scream queen for sure. I’m already intrigued by Ti West’s upcoming prequel: Pearl.
What does a bat, a cat, a rat, a penguin and a falcon have in common? You shall have your answers in Matt Reeves’ rendition of The Batman.
The casting is stellar. Robert Pattinson was a surprising choice, but he turned out to be perfect for the role. Zoë Kravitz is absolutely divine, Paul Dano is devilishly mad and Colin Farrell is unrecognizable; the prosthetic is that good.
It’s almost three hours of solid content with an out of this world cinematography, thanks to Greig Fraser.
Honestly, I couldn’t have imagined something better and I already can’t wait to rewatch it.
