America Animals (2018) 6/10

Not worth the hype. Not a particular special true crime thriller film.
Yeah I was bored during the movie. I did however appreciate the last part of the movie where it portrayed the angst and regret that they had after their "job". But overall I expected more from the movie. 6.5/10 for me.

Oceans 8 - 6/10. Practically a shot for shot remake of Oceans 11.


Hereditary - 9/10. Bone chilling horror masterpiece. Toni Collette is amazing.

Interesting albeit slapped together storyline that left out bits in between and ends anticlimactic, it's a supernatural thriller without the thriller.........Uma Thurman aged well the acting not so much.

Adrift - 6.5/10. All is Lost type story marred by flashback narrative and lame twist ending.
Twist may have been lame, but it would have been worse if they had let him live in the movie when he died in real life. I suppose it's only a twist if you didn't know the real story of what actually happened. Was always a bit uncomfortable with the movie hearing the plot description of him being alive following the storm (and not knowing the movie had a twist ending) when I knew he was washed overboard in reality - might make the movie lame but it's a truer telling of the story...
