    Infinity Pool

    ★★★½

    Perhaps we’re witnessing an impasse in the language of cinema when the son of one of film’s pilgrims of psycho-splatter has managed to fully reiterate the core concepts that have defined his father’s legacy without having much more to add to the conversation. While it’s a lot of fun to watch, it does leave one feeling a tiny bit unfulfilled. Almost as unfulfilled as the mediocre wastrel of a protagonist Alexander Skarsgard’s James appears to be.

    ★★★★½

    I'm super proud to say an old buddy of mine made this, and I'm even in the first couple of scenes! Thanks for scratching that one off my bucket list, Josh!

In this dreck-citing shit-eration of the lucrative franchise, Johnny Depp does his best impression of David Bowie humanizing Hitler while Eddie Redmayne, crippled by social anxiety disorder, bumbles about, mumbling, stumbling upon fantastical CG creatures while people either murder babies or reminisce about babies dying. There is a lot of child death…

    Annihilation

    ★★½

    In the ever increasingly difficult task of keeping science fiction fresh there are bound to be a few casualties. I did not expect director Alex Garland would disappoint with his follow up to 2014's Ex Machina, but Annihilation is the very definition of a sophomore slump. Much like another audacious but vacuous sci-fi outing, Inception, the film boasts dazzling visuals in service to a thin plot that's lacking any semblance of an emotional core. A cool concept is squandered in…
