This low-budget superhero movie looks good on the outside, but is mostly hot air when it comes to its story and characters.
'Vengeance of an Assassin' is impossible to take seriously but if you grew up on the low-budget 80s action movies of Cannon Films and similar studios, it is possible to enjoy.
"The Cured" is a dark and depressing zombie film about guilt and politics, presented in rather obvious metaphors that are hyper-relevant in the current times of divisive ideologies.
Stunning visuals, astounding scores, and flawless performances can’t compensate for an overly ambitious film trying to mix a love story with terrorism and oceanography.
Boasting a mix of frenzied thrills and social commentary, 'Train to Busan' is very much alive on arrival.
Boasting a star-studded cast, a dark and intriguing plot, and a director-actor brother duo, "Gringo" starts off with a promising set-up only to lose its steam as the film progresses, leaving a bad aftertaste.
A bizarre, complex, and provocative alien film that is more visually stunning than gory and violent as others before it, "Annihilation" explores deeper and darker themes than just our natural responses to otherness.
Overly ambitious in presenting too many perspectives, the film lacks a clear direction for both the characters and the audience, wasting a promising opening and convincing performances.
Good but not great, 'Live by Night' should still manage to allay the anxious fears of fanboys anticipating a disastrous 'The Batman'.
Part satire, part melodrama and part horror movie...

THE TEACHER’S DIARY

Summary: Romantic, heartwarming and gorgeously filmed, THE TEACHER'S DIARY is at once old-school and unconventional, sweet and compelling instead of mawkishly sentimental.
This new chapter in the Wizarding World caters to devotees and newcomers alike, even if the setting is more interesting than the story itself.
