Graham Martin has written 4 reviews for films rated ★★ during 2018.

  • Mortal Engines

    Mortal Engines

    ★★

    What do you do when you don’t have a screenplay and your grasp on editing is tenuous at best? Obvi just merge the climaxes from Star Wars 4+5 into one messy frankenmax and give all your money to VFX. 

    Seriously, the visual world-building here is awesome and could’ve unleashed a LOTR-esque filmchise if this went through a few(bunch) more drafts. Plot holes are distracting and the major beats don’t land.

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead

    ★★

    I had an aggressively unfun time with this movie

  • Brimstone

    Brimstone

    ★★

    Creepy weird movie that proves Jon Snow really does know nothing

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★

    Idk why I thought this wasn’t going to be as bad as it’s said to be. Villeneuve’s got a big job ahead of him
