Wow, just wow. Atomic Blonde is going to be on everyone's mind this weekend with the release of the trailer and the premiere of the film at SXSW. Bruises on top of bruises. Check out Charlize Theron's hardcore skills.
A genuine fright fest that like all good modern horrors, relies more on atmosphere than cheap jump scares. With the turbulent backdrop of the Iran-Iraq war and an extremely unnerving folk tale mixed in, Under the Shadow is more than worth your time.
In 2006 Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón unleashed Children of Men on the world; a science fiction thriller about a world without the voices of children. Based on the book by P.D. James, Children of Men follows the story of Theo (Clive Owen), a Londoner in a fascist and war torn Britain who is soon persuaded to escort the last known pregnant girl to a safe zone across the country with ex girlfriend Julian (Julianne Moore) in a mad attempt to better the world. A world where women can no longer become pregnant. A world where nationalist propaganda is plastered to every billboard, tablet and TV screen. A world where refugees are in cages.
6.5/10 Anthropoid is a WWII thriller about two Czech soldiers on an assassination mission in Prague. Although the film has ample opportunity to flesh out an intense and historic story through the eyes and ears of the Czech resistance, the film falls a little short of delivering the emotion that I was expecting.
