Moonfall (2022, dir. Roland Emmerich)

A conspiracist discovers the moon is on a collision course with Earth. Cheerfully shambolic SF disaster flick, cribbing from across the genre from Contact to The Core as well as from the director’s back catalogue. A sturdy cast of B-listers helps, with John Bradley being especially good value.

Here’s the trailer.

Hall (2020, dir. Francesco Giannini)

A contagion spreads along a hotel corridor, affecting those staying on that floor in different ways. A slow-burn z-movie of sorts, and timely; it takes time to get going, but there are some interesting ideas on display, even if some of this good work is undone by a talky explanatory coda.
