Not funny enough to be a comedy, not scary enough to be a horror, not clever enough to be a satire. Nowhere near as much fun as recent films like Malignant, Barbarian or Fresh. It's okay but people claiming M3gan is a new horror icon are mad. Piggy - I've no idea why people were raving about this. The family drama parts were just soapy melodrama and the horror scenes were early 2000s Texas Chainsaw remake-esque rubbish. It's biggest sin is that it's really boring, when a film like this should be anything but. Empire Of Light - It's got two really strong central performances but the film has no idea what it wants to be. It's so mudled and I'm not sure what the point of it was. Alice, Darling - A really effective disturbing look at coercive control, gaslighting, all that fun stuff. One of those films that got under my skin and wouldn't leave my head for a few days. There's an unneccesary sub-plot but for the most part it's a really strong film. Ant-Man 3 - Nah. I've gone from 'watches every episode of Agents of Shield' to 'Team Scorsese'. They're not even trying anymore, are they? The reviews say otherwise but even Jonathan Majors is sleepwalking through this. Plane - This is more like it! A fine Friday-night actioner. Gerard Butler is great at this type of thing. Knock At The Cabin - I thought it was perfectly okay but nothing more. Big Dave is the standout. I find Shymalan fascinating though, the bloke has made a career out of big-budget Twilight Zone episodes and keeps churning them out despite having more stinkers than hits.
