  • Van Helsing

    I personally prefer The Mummy, but this is also a very good revival of the old monster movies, minus Boris Karloff. A competent baby’s first gothic horror, a fantastic introduction to the Genre.

  • Ghost in the Shell

    Part of the holy trinity of classical anime: this, Akira and Cowboy Bebop. Innocence is also great.

  • Jiu Jitsu

    Produced by a Caesar Augustus, this has big shoes to fill, right of the bat on the initial credits. Not even Nic Cage can make this more than a snore fest. Why use this title for Predator with martial arts?

  • Eternal Beauty

    This should include triggers warnings for extremely downer mood inducing, the synopsis calls this a comedy, for crying out loud. And I’m not even talking about the Welsh countryside.

  • The Meg

    Yet another Chinese blockbuster like Mortal Engines. Based on a book, suure. Fun for the whole committee.

  • O Brother, Where Art Thou

    This is almost a variety act: singing and dancing is the bulk of it, but there’s also some drama, theatricals, and even space for political points (either more towards philosophy, or straight up politicking).

  • Dick Tracy

    Calling Dick Tracy, calling Dick Tracy. I’m a beat cop and I can’t tie my shoes, help me Dick Tracy. What do I do, Dick Tracy? Help me, Dick Tracy.

  • Assassins

    Duelling assassins working for a unknown messager on the internet. When yet another female criminal enters the fray, their allegiances twist and turn. But the bad guy is still the bad guy, victoria o muerte.
