The Girl in the Spider’s Web Movie Review

Gone is the intricate detective yarn, where detailed research and some kick ass computer hacking leads to finding the villain. In its place is a big dumb American style action piece. The kind where the most implausible and physics defying scenarios are played out to keep our hero out of major harm’s way. Damaged and slightly singed but not broken.   //   The Girl in the Spider's Web is based on the fourth novel of the Millennium Series and was written by David Lagerc...

Suspiria Movie Review

There are horror films that scare you and ones that just creep you out, Suspiria is firmly in the later camp. It’s a work that does its best to put you in discomfort and in that pursuit it succeeds magnificently. Director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) keeps you off balance throughout its 152 minute running time. A talented young dancer, Susie Bannion played by Dakota Johnson joins a prestigious dance company in West Berlin in the late seventies and comes under the spell of the ...

Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive.

Bad Times at the El Royale Movie Review

Set in a run down hotel in the late sixties and featuring a great soundtrack to help get you in the mood, it tells numerous tales that at first have no connection but then dovetail nicely into a powerful ensemble piece. The cast is outstanding and everyone plays their part with generosity. The spot light falls on all.   //   Bad things have happened at the El Royale and the more details that become unearthed, the more tawdry and lethal things become. The violence is so ...
