Those who wish me dead - 5.5/10. Jolie doing stupid things and posing for the camera coupled with stupid characters. Just stupid.

Woman in the window - 6/10. Adams is good as always but this "homage" falls to pieces with each agonizingly dull moment.

Benny Loves You (2019) 6.5/10

Pretty delightful psycho thriller. Extremely gory. Some good CGI at play (surprisingly).

LOL. I knew you would like it. Fist pump :)
Really punches above its weight. A little gem. I think being a UK movie is what made it.

By the numbers South African mystery thriller. Good awareness, ok story.

RIPD - 6/10

Mindless entertainment but worth a watch if you want something that's mildly humourous.

There are moments this local thriller (on Netflix) approaches very good - the atmosphere and cinematography is great at times (Jo'burg's never looked so cold and ominous before).

Then the main character comes back on-screen and it goes back to decidedly-average. The actress isn't totally at fault - the writing is generic and she's given a very obvious trajectory. It's a problem when you center a movie around a character so basic and "unfleshed-out".

Overall, I enjoyed it though.
