Thor and Loki must battle their forgotten sister to regain Asgard. Hugely entertaining and impressively throwaway piece of popcorn tosh. Everyone is having a whale of a time, even if there’s minimal actual story or incident. Lots of fun all round though, especially in the details.
Another perspective? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s take.
Red-neck heist movie. The plot jumps around a tad wildly but the whole thing holds together pretty well. Has a Coen brothers feel to it yet lacks the fun aspect and the characters you need, but enjoyable none the less.
A group of friends are terrorised by a company providing bespoke horror experiences. In-jokey horror-themed riff on Fincher’s The Game which starts slow, but gathers momentum, and is actually pretty good at disguising its payoff.
Two conmen take down a mob boss in revenge for the killing of a friend. Jaunty 1930s-set caper with exceptional production design, fun performances, and an engaging plot. Recommended.
Excellent character piece as the three titular billboards cause consternation in a small, American town. Superb performances all round; at times funny, sad and grimly dark, this is well worth your time. Go watch it.
The Enterprise crew battles a Klingon captain bent on destabilising the prospect of peace. A fine send-off for the original series crew, part six of the franchise effectively comments on Cold War anxieties while delivering on character and space battles.
The Enterprise crew assembles and fights a renegade Romulan across two generations. Slick and funny on the surface, though with an awkward backstory (alt-timelines and time-travel), this franchise reboot delivers acceptably with a well-cast crew.
