Storm chasing near divorcees battle ever larger CGI tornados. FX jammed mid 90s plotless silliness, saved by some spectacular FX and set piece action. Strange 80s-90s cast includes Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Jami Gertz(!), Alan Ruck(!!) and Cary Elwes(!!!). Windy!
Imagine Pet Semetary, but where someone thought that replacing an American Indian burial ground with an Indian burial ground and you’re not far off. Lightweight, paranormal bunkum with nary an original thought to its name. Meh.
Despite a questionable central premise (domestic abuse and kidnapping is the fault of spooks and spectres), this still manages to deliver the odd scare or two in the ever developing franchise. It still feels like Poltergeist stretched thin, though.
An inspired opening 5 minutes leads to a typical Neeson style thriller. All set on one train journey, this zips along at a decent pace with plenty of expected twists and turns. It doesn’t really do anything new, but it’s fun whilst it lasts.
Survivors of a new ice age find a neighbouring colony has been taken over by feral cannibals. Patchy SF/horror which can’t decide which old story it wants to tell (base under siege, cannibal zombies, epidemic, road movie) so has a bash at several.
The now-veteran racer Lightning McQueen has one last chance to prove he’s still competitive. Perhaps the best in the trilogy of Pixar’s least likeable franchise, this is a good-looking cartoon with a couple of laughs and a bit of heart.
