Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a disaster movie / conspiracy thriller that director J.A. Bayona uses to build his signature visual sequences of tragedy and horror, but it's not enough to save the horrendous script which suffers from identity crisis, and is just banal at times.
Love, Simon is an amusing teen romcom that wins because of its gay protagonist, even if it is sickly sweet and sentimental at times.
Ghost Stories is loads of fun. It's a horror film that pays tribute to old classics, but still keeps you guessing with its sometimes wild twists and turns. The scares are also well-timed, and just so entertaining - it's like a dodgy old ghost train, and I mean that in the best possible way.
Delirium is a run-of-the-mill supernatural thriller that uses the same old tropes for the same old scares. It feels like it should have been released 20 years ago.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is a refreshing (force free) entry in the Star Wars universe. An entertaining origin story that pays homage to the original character but also stands firmly on its own.
OK, dear readers. I'm on my balcony drinking wine again, so naturally it's time for more of that personal word vomit. So, this feels like an age ago now. Before I was influenced by Aronofsky, Polanski, Tarkovsky, and other directors whose surnames end in 'ski', I was teenager obsessed with V for Vendetta.
A Quiet Place is a masterful experiment in sound and silence that really cranks up the tension and horror, but it's also entertaining as hell.
