Double Bill:

Manhunter (1986) 7/10

Top notch psychological thriller. Great unfolding & suspense, absorbing watch.


Red Dragon (2002) 7/10

Stays true to Manhunter, arguably a better cast. Newer film is more raw. Imo Anthony Hopkins does a better job than Brian Cox.

Stillwater (2021) - 7/10

Good performance from Matt Damon but for me the movie is bit on the long side.
It was really engaging for me, when the soccer scene about, I was reminded I wasn't watching a wholesome family comedy where they learn to connect through their mutual love of sport.

Stillwater (2021) 6.5/10

Interesting story & slightly surprising end. Does drag & pacing is off. Damon is good.

Reminiscence (2021) - 6/10. The bastard son of Blade Runner, Minority Report, Inception and other better sci-fi, nevertheless a decent effort from Lisa Joy (Westworld).

The Djinn (2021) - 7.5/10. Effective old school horror. Cool retro soundtrack plus amazing performance from young lead.

Sweet Girl (2021) 6/10

By the numbers revenge thriller with some misdirection thrown in to spice it up. Not the biggest Jason Momoa fan & his performance here did not change my view.

The Green Knight (2021) - 9/10. Surreal, artsy adaptation of the legend of Gawain. Sensual and pleasurable. Alicia Vikander impresses.

A good effort neo-noir sci-fi, takes some ideas from a few films but moulds it pretty well. Very much a "journey" film. Solid 1st (film directing) effort from Lisa Joy.

Paw Patrol the Movie (2021) 7/10. I had no plan to watch this with my kids but it's weirdly good. Anyway your kids will love it, if you have kids.
