47 Meters Down is a bigger nothingburger than Rachel Maddow’s Trump tax scoop. I left the theater feeling nothing for this movie and I feel even less writing this review. If you want a better Shark thriller, watch last years The Shallows, it’s better in every aspect.
When It comes down to it, It Comes At Night just feels like a filler episode of The Walking Dead and perhaps an episode of Talking Dead after the film would have answered more questions than the actual film did.
Hollywood is wondering why no one is going to the movie theater now and tickets sales are way down. This film answers that question because the only things they can seem to do now is Remake, Reboot, Sequel, complain about the President, and rip-off the idea of a Cinematic Universe nobody asked for in the first place. The Mummy is a bitter disappointment on so many levels.
The effects are great, the gore is well done, and those goddamn face huggers are still suckering people in long after they should know better. Alien: Covenant is a well-shot thriller for a franchise that is waiting for Young CGI Ripley to conclude Riley Scott’s work.
The film is pretty short, only 85 minutes. Normally this would get under my skin, but here the film doesn’t stretch itself too thin and remains effective. Phoenix Forgotten while not a top 10 film of 2017 is one of my favorite and most pleasant surprises of the year.
Life was on pace to be a decent B movie with high budget effects, but the ending to this film was such an epic fail (in terms of the character’s plan, not the writing) that I had to give them an extra star just for writing such a ballsy ending.
The Belko Experiment ultimately delivers on a simple premise, workplace violence turned up to 100. With low expectations, the film is a fun thriller worthy of seeing with a few friends or enjoying in the comfort of your own home. James Gunn gets credit for trying to do something different like with most Blumhouse Films. The only negative here is you just wish they took a little more risk to truly be something special.
