All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006/2013, dir. Jonathan Levine)

A distant teenage girl becomes the object of unwanted attention. Smart, well-directed horror flick that explores the boundaries of the high-school slasher movie. Good performances, a touch of bleakness, and unsettling moments of gore make for a well-judged genre experience.

Aquaman (2018, dir. James Wan)

Aquaman/Arthur Curry reluctantly agrees to help prevent a war between the Atlanteans and humanity. Glossy and fun – though overlong and CG-tastic – superhero origin flick. Ugly greenscreen cinematography gets in the way of some decent performances and Wan’s capable direction.
