    Scream

    ★★★★

    "Do you like scary movies?" Um. Yes, please. Super fans of the OG 'Scream' will have high expectations with this "requel". Dare to say, they will be satisfied (and surprised). "Torch" passed, honour is given to OG creators Kevin Williamson and "for Wes" Craven, while breaking new ground. The new cast members are welcome additions, while the "Legacy" heroes each make memorable returns. There are several standout moments, along with shocking gore, cheeky meta commentary, and thrilling twists to enjoy.

  • The Tragedy of Macbeth

    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★½

    The old is made new again. This vision of The Bard's tale has a few exciting additions, like the way the 3 Witches are presented. The set design feels like a classic silent film. The gothic surroundings and foggy atmosphere help embellish the haunted performances. With the traditional script, Washington and McDormand each have a few moments to chew up the scenery. Despite feeling slow at times, perhaps given the nature of 'deciphering' Shakespeare, the overall experience is worth the watch for fans of the play.

    Flash Point

    ★★★

    The Guy Ritchie vibing opening with B&W freeze-frames, silly comedy, and John Wick pastel neons doesn't quite paint the picture for what's in store. What follows is an uninspired martial arts version of 'Infernal Affairs' that's light on the action until the 3rd Act, when John Woo gun ballet fills the frame with chaotic energy. The build-up to the grand finale starts with a foot chase and market fight that's worth the wait. The epic climax is a gonzo Donnie Yen spectacle, bouncing from style to style, including MMA ground grappling and Muhammad Ali inspired boxing.

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    ★★★½

    Abandon all logic ye who enter here... What we've got here is a mash-up of 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' & monster movies. Focused on spectacle with a few rounds of WWE-style beat-'em-up, including a fantastic pastel neon bout in Tokyo, and an over-the-top 'Pacific Rim' mecha fight, there's still some character to enjoy. While it's hard to replicate the emotion of the B&W original 'Kong', there's enough heart to root for the 'King'. Really, it's the big-time action that fans expect, and this edition delivers on that promise.
