Reminiscence (2021, dir. Lisa Joy)

A memory technician becomes obsessed with a nightclub singer. Somewhat laboured SF noir, indebted to Blade Runner, Chinatown, and – er – Who Framed Roger Rabbit, saddled with po-faced script and narration. Some visual stuff works (there’s one genuine moment of wonder) but the central mystery and its importance is bungled.

Here’s the trailer.

Tomb Raider (2018, dir. Roar Uthaug)

A bike courier/heiress follows clues left by her missing father to a forbidden tomb. OK series reboot with plenty of action, chases and the usual set-piece puzzle lair supernatural finale. Nothing new, but competently done, with a good central performance.

Another perspective required? Here’s Xussia’s review.
