Velvet Buzzsaw review – bizarre, tacky, dated, but a future cult classic?

Velvet Buzzsaw is the most peculiar film I have seen so far this year. It feels dated, predictable, tacky and occasionally trashy. In hindsight though, maybe it wasn't trashy enough? It feels like a satire on the art community, albeit one that we've heard too many times before, but never actually plays up the horror enough to take into trash cinema territory.

Glass review – a bloated and thoroughly disappointing follow-up to ‘Split’

Glass is an overstuffed and ridiculous entry in Shyamalan's cinematic universe that tries to make grand statements about our obsessions with superheroes, but ultimately falls flat from a flawed and clunky script, redundant characters, and an all round lack of that gritty realism that the previous two films had. 

Suspiria review – Guadagnino’s superb ‘horror epic’ is a must see

The new Suspiria is more of a rebirth than a remake. A spellbinding ambitious art film that cleverly, albeit brutally, assaults the senses with its nightmarish imagery and explores unrelenting violence. The violence that occurs through abuses of power, both with politics and with women. It feels as timely today as it would have been confined within the wall of 1970s' Berlin, which is where this very feminist horror epic takes place.

Science fiction horror film Invasion is one of the most fascinating and original titles to hit Czech Republic's popular Iranian Film Festival this year.

Mortal Engines review – stunning and steampunk but very rushed

Mortal Engines is a stunning steampunk world with gorgeous production design and decent action sequences thanks to Peter Jackson, but feels rushed and falls short when it comes to compelling characters.
