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.
The stunning new Timothée Chalamet drama Beautiful Boy is coming to Czech cinemas this January and is a heartbreaking portrayal of teenage drug addiction, and a must-see.
A very mediocre attempt at reigniting the Millenium franchise, The Girl in the Spider's Web is void of passion, meaning and suspense. A dull and almost lifeless action movie that is a tremendous waste of talent. As a standalone film it's bad, but as a follow-up to a David Fincher movie, it's terrible.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a formulaic band movie that struggles to get Queen's story off the ground in an original and captivating way, but the Live Aid finale almost makes the whole thing worthwhile - it's that and Rami Malek's stupendous performance that save this film.
Halloween is an exhilarating and entertaining horror film that's not only one of the best recent slasher films, but the best outing in the franchise for a long time. Bloody good fun.
Venom suffers from an infantile screenplay that this overqualified cast just doesn't deserve. Virtually every moment is teaming with face-palm. What happened here?
The new Lars von Trier film The House That Jack Built is packed to the brim with violence and controversy, as you may have already guessed. The director seems to be making a bold statement about the art world that starts off as intriguing but soon becomes an overexaggerated blunder that services no one but the director himself.
