Bad Times At The El Royale (2018, dir. Drew Goddard)

One night at a motel on the California/Nevada border, where no-one is who they appear to be. Twisty-turny self-conscious comedy-thriller; lots of fun if you go with it, though the movie’s stately pace may frustrate some.

Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018, dir. Steven S DeKnight)

Ten years after the events of Pacific Rim, the Jaeger programme is under threat. Teen-oriented sequel which takes the Independence Day: Resurgence route: good-looking international cast and locations, a focus on China as a sales market, a lighter tone, a sense of disposability.
