SUMMER OF 84.

Hmmm. Not remotely the horror/slasher it is pushed as. Good set up. Great characters. A tad too linear. But pretty tense and engaging while it was on. And a very downbeat copout ending. Not unlike my summer of 84. Hmmmmm.

 

IT’S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY.

Cool but downbeat teen comedy set in a Psych Ward. Sweet, very touching and chucklesome. One of the funnier suicide movies.

 

IRON SKY 2: THE COMING RACE.

Not many movies feature Margaret Thatcher, Nazis AND dinosaurs. Which is a shame. This one dares you to keep watching, hammering the stupid button until it shatters, but is smarter, funnier and more inventive than seems possible. Fun as hell.

RED SPARROW.

Hmmmm. I I get that it’s part of the story (the central part) but it lingers too long on the rapey stuff. However it opens out into a pretty smart, complex and surprisingly engaging spy thriller.
