    Malignant

    Delirious, and ridiculous to the extremes, James Wan’s latest horror film Malignant breaks all the rules of genre expectations and delivers his bonkers material with gusto and commitment. The film follows a mystery surrounding a disturbed woman who sees visions of terrifying murders.

    Soul

    ★★★

    Pixar has always been consistent in their endless fixations on human behavior, emotions, and life as a whole. Their recent output Soul is probably the studio’s most mature and frankly, adult-fared film that explores death and existentialism at its core. How do you explain death and the fullness of life to an eight-year-old? Directed by Pete Docter and Kemp Powers, the film does a resounding undertaking of being risky and insightful, but in the end something’s quite glaringly missing. Soul
