In new horror / thriller The Prodigy, Taylor Schilling is a mother worried about her son’s increasingly disturbing behaviour and suspects the supernatural…

Directed by Nicholas McCarthy; other key cast includes Brittany Allen, Colm Feore, Jackson Robert Scott, Olunike Adeliyi…

This trailer is certainly more intriguing than the teaser trailer released a little earlier.

I’m curious about which thriller will be better, The Prodigy or The Hole In The Ground (2019). You know, since both seem quite similar. Both movies seem to be calling for an exorcist. The Prodigy especially reminds me of a movie I never should have seen at age 12… The Omen (1976).

The Prodigy Release Dates: February 8th, 2019 (US), March 15th, 2019 (UK)…

THE TITAN (2018): It’s…

The Titan (2018), Sam Worthington

Starring Sam Worthington, Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson, The Titan is a sci-fi film about a military family who agree to take part in a ground-breaking experiment of genetic evolution and space exploration.

My experience of director Lennart Ruff’s film, similarly to other recent Netflix films I’ve seen can be characterised by disappointment. What intrigued me most about the film in the first place was the subject matter, definitely more so  than the actors. Sadly though, when the thing I’d been waiting for all along, namely the physical manifestation of the genetic evolution began to show in Worthington’s character’s body, instead of thinking ‘wow that’s pretty impressive,’ I instead found it and the film as a whole to be very basic. Perhaps a higher budget could have helped. To that I say, ‘sure’ as long as a sizeable chunk of the money went into producing a more well thought out story that is actually exciting.

Is it possible that I’ve just been expecting too much from Netflix movies? Is that my real problem? I’m certainly starting to think so. On the other hand, who can blame me really when the first Netflix movie I ever saw was Cary Joji Fukunaga’s memorable and rather impressive Beasts Of No Nation (2015)?

Watch The Titan if you must but only if you you absolutely must.

In director Lennart Ruff’s TitanSam Worthington is part of a military family that agrees to take part in a ground-breaking experiment of genetic evolution and space exploration.

Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson also star…

I’ve never been an early adopter where new technology is concerned – and genetic evolution / space exploration is likely no exception. Fingers crossed that this movie will be as entertaining as its quite promising trailer. I’ve been waiting for another surprise sci-fi hit ever since the excellence that was Ex Machina (2014).

Titan Release Dates: March 30th, 2018 (US); April 13th, 2018 (UK)…

In new comedy Take Me which stars Taylor Schilling, Pat Healy (also the director) and Alycia Delmore, a fledgling entrepreneur who specialises in high-end simulated abductions is hired. The mysterious client wants a weekend kidnapping, offers a handsome payday but…

I sure hope the twist isn’t that the victim has a twin sister.  That would most certainly be too obvious and obviously bad.

Take Me Release Dates: May 5th, 2017 (US)…
