    Nightmare Alley

    ★★★

    Guillermo del Toro follows up his academy award winning The Shape of Water with a remake of a 1947 film which is, well, excruciatingly long.

    Editor Cam McLauchlin clearly took a great many director's notes in this story of a developing con-artist, Stan Carlisle, who takes up with a bunch of carnies in the late '30s, honing his craft and making key relationships along the way. The first hour of the film is dedicated to these formative years, before there…

    Scream

    ★★★½

    Wes is gone, but in true horro- I mean, sorry, Hollywood style, the Scream franchise lives on and returns to cinemas eleven years after the well-received fourth film in the series. This time around Ghostface is back terrorising a new group of kids in the American town with a murder rate second only to Haddonfield, but it isn't long before some familiar faces show up to add to the possible victim queue.

    To say anything more would spoil the film,…

    We Need to Do Something

    ★★

    Low budget COVID production which unfortunately wears very thin before it establishes anything greater than being trapped in a large bathroom with your immediate family would, eventually, result in carnage.

    Small Engine Repair

    ★★

    Very well acted, but this film based on a play is glacially paced with nothing beyond tedious character building taking place for the first hour and change.

    It is also intermittently described as a drama, thriller and black comedy, when in truth, it is really only the former.

    Very much not for me.

    Crawl

    ★★

    Things I learned while watching Crawl:

    - Florida state police officers do not bother pursuing people who directly and brazenly ignore their explicit orders.
    - Basements below ground level do not flood until it is narratively necessary for them to do so.
    - Alligators are all at least 9 feet long.
    - If any alligators smaller than 9 feet long do exist, they most certainly do not venture into basements where their smaller size would enable them to crawl under…

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★★½

    NO SPOILERS AT ALL BELOW

    For several months now, Tenet has been proclaimed as the film which might just save the movie theatre industry. A 200 million dollar, original property blockbuster, written and directed by one of the most reliable names in Hollywood, Christopher Nolan. The hopes were that Nolan might deliver a film that was so incredible – so quintessential – to see on the big screen that it would tempt people from their homes, with their huge televisions…
