Scream [AKA Scream 5] (2022, dir. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett)

25 years after the original Woodsboro killings, a new series of murders. Cheerily meta sequel / reboot / remake, better with the self-aware jokes than with real suspense, despite a couple of inventive moments. Hard to care about the new cast or the murder-mystery element though, which robs the movie of impetus.

Here’s the trailer.

The Glass Man (2011, dir. Cristian Solimeno)

A man spiralling in work, money, and relationship issues is made an offer he daren’t refuse. Odd drama with genre elements that has strong performances (Andy Nyman and James Cosmo are great) though which struggles to tell a story: overlong, episodic but interesting, and worth sticking with despite its frustrations.

Here’s the trailer.

Skyscraper (2018, dir. Rawson Marshall Thurber)

An ex-FBI agent turned security consultant must rescue his family from a high-tech skyscraper overrun by fire and criminals. Derivative though passable tosh, mashing up Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. Johnson as charismatic as ever, though he’s ill-served by a rote script.
