8MM is a very dark movie with an incredibly dark story and like Andrew Kevin Walker’s previous work, Se7en, not exactly the type of film one might pop in on a whim. Still, Nicolas Cage is mostly subdued and does deliver a fine performance.
Night School is just a poorly made comedy, one which I did not laugh once and goes to show perhaps Kevin Hart’s limitations when he doesn’t have the right director, material and even ensemble cast to work off of.
Venom had the right ingredients from an incredibly talented actor starring, a multi Oscar-nominated actress in the love interest role and an interesting anti-hero in the form of black goo. Unfortunately, the execution wasn’t the best.
Antony and Cleopatra is a well done historical-drama especially considering it was Charlton Heston’s directorial debut and under major financial constraints, but Heston does a fine job despite being a bit too old while Hildegard Neil was at least a delight as Cleopatra.
Monster Party had a great premise about a group of “recovering” serial killers but that idea doesn’t equate to an all that interesting movie, unfortunately despite some fine moments that aren’t exploited.
Maniac may not be a favorite of mine nor do I hold it in as high regard as others, but there is certainly something to admire from Joe Spinell creepy performance to appreciation of some of the technical aspects of Tom Savini’s effects work.
Very faint praise perhaps, but The Nun is perhaps the better of the three spin-ff movies? Yes, I meant a question mark there… It has a decent atmosphere to it, taking advantage of the Romanian landscape and creepy abbey. Having said that, it is at times pretty dull.
Colette is a well made period drama that excels thanks to some beautiful looking direction by Wash Westmoreland and Keira Knightley’s magnanimous performance, however it was missing emotion at its core.
Peppermint is by no means perfect but it was the perfect action vehicle for Jennifer Garner who gets back to her kick ass routes dating back to the Alias TV series. Here the fights are brutal and hard-hitting and the performances are good enough to make an entertaining action yarn.
