Kate (2021) - 7/10

Fairly decent watch actually. Crazy to think that's Ramona Flowers!

Basically Kate "Crank" Wick. I enjoyed how visceral the violence was, they captured it pretty well and she's relatively believable in the role, if you suspend your disbelief for the more fantastic parts of it.

I love Scott Pilgrim, but she's the worst character in it. She's just basically deadpan for 95% of the movie.

First 5 min's of Kate and it already feels like something I've watched 100 times before.
Will finish tonight.

Box Office Cinema Pemiere - Mr. Johnson. Locally made, about a guy coming out of a coma after 47 years.

Fair acting, but we think they ruin the story with their "clever" twist.
Mild at best.

Don't think it's woke, it isn't about that. Great humour IMO.

Same source - Lupin III: The First :)

Meh. First time I've seen anything from the series and it is pretty damn annoying. Also not a big fan of 3D anime. 4/10

Same source - A Quiet Place

Not bad actually 7/10. Will watch the sequel soon.

The Voyeurs (2021) 5/10

This is a car crash of a film. The 1st half/hr plays out almost like a porno version of Rear Window (1954), 2nd half/hr has this weird direction shift. The plot has more holes than Swiss cheese, it is next level stupid yet you find it hard to turn away. After finishing the film you still think to yourself “Dafaq was that??”.

PS: Sydney Sweeney‘s glorious mammaries are in full display & the chick who plays Julia is hot af: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natasha_Liu_Bordizzo

PPS: The Justice Smith fellow is annoying & badly casted/cast.

No it was one of the first Ghibli movies directed by Miyazaki. It’s great
Oh, you mean Castle of Cagliostro. Not really a Ghibli movie. Never watched it but I should one day even though I hated this new movie and the annoying Lupin himself

Escape Room 2

7/10 nice bit of escapism. Would be better if the provided a small two minute visual backstory of some of the new players.
Good ending, looking forward to the sequel.
