A recently-bereaved couple find their newly-acquired motel has a dark side. Slow voyeuristic thriller with decent performances, but no sense of urgency until its too late to care.
Six tales of the Old West, each taller than the last. Splendid Western anthology, packed full of quirky moments and character actors, with a few stars plainly having fun. Not exactly commercial, though; Netflix is a good home for this Coen brothers confection.
A Predator reboot movie mess directed by Shane Black. Too many ideas, with a cast that makes no sense in an incoherent and studio ‘enhanced’ plot. Edited with garden shears, this rumbles between comedy and action, never being effective at either.
An industrial spy leaves himself clues to solve the crimes of which he’s now accused. An SF twist on a Hitchcock plot (based on a Philip K Dick story), this lumpen chase thriller gets bogged down early and doesn’t relax into what Woo – when unrestrained – does best.
Four New York zoo animals find themselves accidentally marooned in the wilds of Madagascar. Fast and funny CG animation, with enough going on by way of slapstick, good gags, pop culture references and keen voicework to keep all ages entertained.
