Tom has written 4 reviews for films rated ★★½ during 2020.

  • Tales of Halloween

    Tales of Halloween

    ★★½

    Sweet Tooth, The Night Billy Raised Hell, Trick. The opening 3 segments and the only ones I really liked. The Pumpkin in the final segment (Bad Seed) was fun but by this point I’d already endured all the stuff in the middle and just wanted it to end. Each segment did capture the Halloween setting very well though.

  • The Old Guard

    The Old Guard

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Charlize Theron in another kick ass role so that makes it enjoyable enough but there’s some problems. 
    The story and world building wasn’t really explored all that much and none of the characters really stood out, you could have cut half of them out and you wouldn’t notice. The villains were pretty bad too. 
    The action scenes were good for the most part but some of them were cut all over the place and you could see the characters move…

  • Horse Girl

    Horse Girl

    ★★½

    Excellent performance from Alison Brie and some effective music throughout. It held my attention but it’s got a lot of weird stuff going on and even now I’m unsure if I completely dig it or not.

  • Men, Women & Children

    Men, Women & Children

    ★★½

    Pretty pointless film which struggles to have any impact. Goes from one character to the next and then some are just never seen again. Most characters have the same issues. It’s a whole load of nothing really. 

    Would be a 10/5 movie if I could rate it 1 star for every cast member I like though.
