  • A Quiet Place

    As intense as Sicario. A family drama with aliens. And with little to no dialogue. But the ending is very abrupt, there’s no resolution. There’s plenty of sequels though.

  • Solomon Kane

    An origin story. How did a philanderer, murderous wretch privateering in the name of Glorianna, a guy that sailed under Francis Drake, turned into a pilgrim warrior-monk? By watching pilgrims die at the hand of raiders while his vow of peace remained unbroken.

  • Scream

    That’s what I did when I noticed the Miramax logo. The Weinstein treatment. It’s so meta, it even opens with the youngest Barrymore clan member being slashed, to prove this is not your regular Hollywood film.

  • Blood Simple

    A reversed noir with an horror twist. A great start to a meteoric career.

  • Die Hard with a Vengeance

    Starts with a incredible scene and manages to hold up pretty well through the whole film.

  • The Rock

    Classic Michael Bay/Bruckheimer collaboration. Not as much rotating cameras yet, but a lot of shit blows up. It’s also a non-official The Treasure prequel, since Mason gives up the secret location of Hoover’s archive.

  • The Vanished

    Thought it might not be a low budget thriller with mental health plot points (the modern daemonic possession), but it turns out it was a figment of their imagination all along.

  • Blast from the Past

    This is a more romantic twist on Back to the Future, just another excuse to have the good old 40’s and 50’s back in the spotlight. At least the theme park version.
