Directed by Edgar Wright of Baby Driver (2017); Last Night in Soho is a new drama/horror/mystery that stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie and Jessie Mei Li. It’s the story of a young girl (McKenzie), passionate about fashion design, who finds herself mysteriously able to enter the 1960s.
While there, she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer (Taylor-Joy). Only 1960s London isn’t quite what it seems.
The part-horror categorisation makes me nervous but I remain curious. Who knew that Taylor-Joy had such a beautiful singing voice? No t me.
Here’s to hoping that there are more pleasant surprises to look forward to.
Diana Rigg, Matt Smith, Rita Tushingham, Terence Stamp, Margaret Nolan, Lisa McGrillis, James Phelps, Synnove Karlsen, Oliver Phelps, Katrina Vasilieva, Michael Jibson and Kassius Nelson also star.
New horror/mystery/thriller, False Positive stars Ilana Glazer (Lucy) and Justin Theroux as a couple who are finally expecting after months of trying.
Soon after learning she’s expecting a healthy baby girl, Lucy suspects that something isn’t quite right about her fertility doctor, and sets out to uncover the unsettling truth.
Directed by John Lee; Sophia Bush, Pierce Brosnan and Gretchen Mol are among the key cast.
Hello, total nightmare!
This is just the kind of thing to help settle any young woman/ future mother’s mind, isn’t it?
Besides horror that’s based around religion, body horror is one of the scariest things for me to watch. Only, with religion-focused-horror, I steer completely clear. Especially after watching The Omen (1976) at age twelve and subsequently not being able to sleep for an entire week. Whereas some body horror, like this one, I’m curious enough to consider watching. After all, it is Theroux and Bush.
Sullivan Jones, Josh Hamilton, Sabina Gadecki, Lucy Walters, Kelly AuCoin, Taylor Ortega, Francesca Faridany, Zainab Jah, S.J. Son and Nils Lawton also star.
A Quiet Place Part 2is one of those rare sequels that didn’t leave me disappointed at the end. I found so much to love about Emily Blunt, John Krasinski and Cillian Murphy’s movie that I’m contemplating watching it again in a few days.
There’s lot’s of heart in this one. So much so that the word that lit up in my mind throughout most of the movie, and especially towards the end, is love; though perhaps not in the most obvious way. The acting is brilliant and you’re going to jump out of your skin a few times. You may even cry, once or twice.
Don’t be surprised if as soon as the movie starts, you find yourself confused and wondering whether the cinema has messed up and is playing A Quiet Place (2018) instead of A Quiet Place Part 2. They haven’t made a mistake, because soon enough, just about everything starts making sense, and after a slightly slower pace, it all picks up and becomes so engrossing and entertaining that you probably won’t see the end coming.
As for what I wish was different about this movie, there are a few small things, two of which happen in act one. The first involves the placing of the baby in the box, then wading away in the water. This scene proved confusing, and distressing, in part because of the shot that follows it.
My other issue is with the arguably unnecessary pounding musical score that accompanies what happens after Blunt’s character says ‘Run.’ I feel that the same scene works better in the trailer, where it’s captured without music. Or, maybe the music that ends up in the film simply stood out a lot, and not in the best way.
Overall, I’d say that the annoyances that come with A Quiet Place Part 2, in no way outweigh the fun and moving ride that this movie is. Watch it if you haven’t already. You may find that the word love lights up brightly for you, as it did for me.
The time for the Venomsequel trailer has finally arrived.
Directed by Andy Serkis; the second instalment, Venom – Let There Be Carnage follows the complex, badass lethal protector Eddie Brock/Venom (Tom Hardy),while doing what he does best.
Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, Naomie Harris and Reid Scott are among the key cast.
I feel as though I know what to expect with Hardy as Venom. so what I’m really looking forward to is Harrelson and Harris’s characters. As for the former, something tells me that Cletus Kasady is just kind of crazy character that Harrelson is has always been perfect for. Fingers crossed the special effects are as good as we need them to be.
Stephen Graham, Amber Sienna, Sean Delaney, Michelle Greenidge, Peggy Lu, Laurence Spellman, Otis Winston, Alfredo Tavares, Mel Powell and Etienne Vick also star.
The new trailer for Zack Snyder’s zombie outbreak in Las Vegas movie, Army of the Dead has landed, and it’s looking like a lot of fun.
Omari Hardwick, Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell and Garret Dillahunt are among the key cast.
I find myself far more excited than I expected to be. Unsurprising with such a good trailer edit and well-chosen music. I particularly can’t wait to see the ways that this new age of zombies are smarter, faster, etc.
I’m also very interested in the unexpected cast. There are so many faces I hadn’t pictured together, but suddenly it all seems to make sense.
Lastly, doesn’t it feel just right that the movie title is about the smart zombies and not the other guys? I guess it’s about time we had a smart, extra capable bunch of the undead. Full disclosure, I’m speaking as someone whose experience of zombie films largely starts and ends with the rather impressive Train to Busan (2016). So, feel free to correct me.
Ana de la Reguera, Tig Notaro, Nora Arnezeder, Lora Martinez-Cunningham, Samantha Win, Matthias Schweighöfer, Lyon Beckwith, Theo Rossi, Michael Cassidy and Raúl Castillo also star.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Elizabeth Brundage; Amanda Seyfried and James Norton star in new mystery/horror Things Heard and Seen; the story of an artist who relocates to the Hudson Valley. Once there, she begins to suspect that her marriage has a sinister darkness.
Directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini; additional key cast includes Natalia Dyer, Michael O’Keefe and James Urbaniak.
I’m curious because I like Seyfried. However, I fear that this will be one of those ‘just OK’ Netflix movies when what I’d really like is something very good.
Alex Neustaedter, Jack Gore, Michael Abbott Jr., Kelcy Griffin, Cotter Smith, Ana Sophia Heger and Olivia Boreham-Wing also star.
Staring Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella and Morgan David Jones; crime/horror Spiral is about a criminal mastermind’s unleashing of a twisted form of justice.
I’m intrigued because I want to see Rock do well in this lead role. And I like the idea of one of my favourite comics sharing screen time with Jackson.
However, the reason I may not see Spiral includes the fact that I’m yet to watch a single movie in the Saw series; mainly on account of horror not being my favourite genre. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean I’m not excited for fans of Saw.
Ali Johnson, Dan Petronijevic, Edie Inksetter, Leila Leigh, Max Minghella, Christopher Tai, John Tokatlidis, Genelle Williams, and Leonidas Castrounis also star.
