Sator

I don't know how to write about its story, because after finished watching, I have no idea what it is about. Based on rottentomatoes, it says the film is about a family being claimed by the demon Sator. If I didn't read that, I would be totally 100% clueless of what I just watched.

The film lacks dialogues; maybe 10% of dialogue, another 20 or 30% of narrations that came from some sort of cassette recordings played by one of the character whenever he is alone in his cabin, and then the rest are creepy sound effects that came from the forest, the cabin, footsteps, windblows and some others.

The atmosphere throughout is something that is really decent, all created by its sound effects and creepy cinematography. The creature effects is a bit of a letdown though, I think. Its nothing more than bunch of guys with fur clothings and antlers' skeletons as a mask. But again, its the sound and the cameraworks that really made some of its scary sequences eerily good.

Its only around 90 minutes, hence I able to sit through it until finish. Some will appreciate this kind of film; super dark and extremely confusing. I'm definitely not one of them.

Saint Maud

The film started with a scene that only will be understood or linked after you reach midway of the film. It's about a nurse who turned into a personal caretaker to a sick woman, then become obsessed with it.

It's more of a religious horror movie, but a bit unique whereby there aren't any demons or ghosts or exorcisms, but mainly about the nurse' delusions. It's somehow a bit disturbing, and I think to some it might be a bit offensive as well (it's about salvation, and there is a scene of "god" speaking to the nurse, and some others). One sex scene in it is quite graphic as well.

To horror films fans, and those who like their horror films to be unique and different, this one I would recommend for you to watch.

Perhaps it is more of a psychological thriller, with religious twist. Regardless of the actual genre of it, I think you guys should check it out.

Birds of Prey

I know this film as been out a while but only just watched it as it did not really appeal to me. But have a lack of things to watch I gave it a try.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised, it was really good, I don't really understand the 6 rating on IMDB.
The film is set in Gotham and is about the recently single Harly Quinn who has just broken up with her longterm boyfriend The Joker.
She discovers that she has made a lot of enemies who were only not seeking their revenge as they were scared of the Joker but now she is single its open season.
Some great acting and casting in this movie, great action scenes and a decent enough story.
8/ 10.

{Ed001's Note - I am surprised you rate it so highly. I got bored and switched it off as I thought it was terrible. I would have given it a 2 out of 10 myself.}

I enjoyed it, I don’t know why. Might be due to all the rubbish I have been watching lately.

It was on TV last night and I tried to watch it. I could only stay for less than 10 minutes. It tries too hard to be cool and funny, but it's not, not at all. I know some praised the action sequences, but I just couldn't stand it to wait any longer.

Shadow in the cloud

I don't know where to start with this movie. It has one of my most favourite actresses playing the main part, however it has to be one of the worst films I've ever seen.
It is so bad it's actually quite amusing.
And it is the biggest load of woke nonsense I've ever seen. The amount of cliches and virtual Signalling is off the charts. However the actual plot is in its self ludicrous. Your hoping it will make some sense in the end but it does not.
I don't want to put any spoilers apart from its an action movie set aboard a world war 2 plane that comes under attack.
Please watch and let me know your thoughts, especially any fans of war movies.
1/ 10.

I've just done watching it yesterday.

Ludicrous plot, I agree totally. Some stupid scenes as well (hanging and crawling under a B-17 bomber flying with 250mph speed 6000ft above the air is plain stupid).

Thing is, I have seen few more worse and more stupid films before this. So I still managed to slightly enjoy this one. Just a bit. This film is pretty much forgettable, but kinda memorable for its nonsense.

And what's with the retro feel and 70s/80s synth electronic music for a WW2 film?

The Empty Man

I'm not sure if this is a supernatural horror film, or a sci-fi, or a psychological thriller.

I really really like the first 20 minutes of the film. One of the scary scene in that 20 minutes is quite decent. I thought it will be about an urban legend, and I was quite excited. Then it just went overboard with its cult plot and some other ridiculous plots/twists. I felt like watching a two totally different films in one. And it failed miserably.

If they take out that first 20 minutes and release it as a short film, I truly believe it will get better receptions.

What a waste!

Wonder Woman 1984

I would say, the somehow high expectation I had before watching it, it paid off.

It is quite long, maybe a bit too long, but I like the story, the humours, the drama, but perhaps it needs a bit more action especially during the first hour. Talking about action scenes, I really like the car chase scene at the desert, and the duel with Cheetah. One sequence at the start of the film, does give a retro, old-school vibe, which I like.

Some parts of the ending are a bit too dramatic, but its not just the ending really. There are some other parts, throughout the film, feel cheesy as well.

I didn't enjoy the first Wonder Woman and I really didn't get all the hypes it was getting. This sequel, for me, is miles better than the first. It's not great, but I enjoyed it a lot.

{Ed001's Note - I thought I was the only one who didn't like the first one!}

This one isn't that good either, but at least watchable. And its 80s setup is quite nice actually. It was fun, but I won't be watching it again. Maybe my "high expectation" was simply "better than the first".

{Ed001's Note - I would expect pretty much anything to be better than the first, the DC films have been almost entirely terrible. Only the Dark Knight trilogy is quality.}

It's decent but not that great. Worth a watch if you have nothing else.

Soul

Beautiful. Even that word I feel like an understatement. The visuals are the most beautiful I have ever seen in any animated movies. The story is very very sweet and beautiful. One sequence did make me tears my eyes. And the ending did the same as well. This Pixar film, story-wise, is more suited for adults. But the visuals are definitely for all ages. Remarkable!

Greenland

This is just a typical disaster movie, but with a slightly fresher take than other similar films before it. Instead of focusing on the military, or the scientists etc, this one centered on a family on a race to find shelters before a huge comet hits earth. Overall the film is okay. The action scenes are okay. The visual effects aren't that bad but not great. It is pretty much watchable.

Next on my list are Wonder Woman 1984 and Soul. I have set high expectations for these two.

Mosul

If you like war movies, I think you will like this. It's an Iraq War movie, but trust me this is unlike any other Iraq/middle-east war movies. It's even made by Hollywood, produced by the Russo's brothers (yeah the guys who made Captain America and Avengers films), and directed by an American director, but the dialogues are entirely in Arabic. And unlike any other war films, there aren't any American troops that come to save the day in this one.

From start to finish, it is about an Iraqi SWAT team fighting ISIS, on a secret mission that will only be revealed at the end.

I really like this film, and hope you guys will check it out.

Sputnik

A Russian-language sci-fi horror film, about a psychiatrist recruited by a military colonel to assess an astronaut who's just landed from a space mission. It is revealed that there is some sort of a malevolent alien form living in the astronaut's body.

The film is set during the Soviet era in the 80s, and I really like the production designs - the base, the surroundings, the equipments (electronics with huge keyboards) etc - it does feel like its in the 80s.

The visual effects are quite nice too. I would say it's almost Hollywood-class, and the alien design and effects are top-notch.

Two things that I would criticize about the film. The love-interest between the psychiatrist and the astronaut (I think that was happening between these two characters) somehow insufficiently developed. So I'm struggling to actually feel or understand why the psychiatrist willing to risk herself to save the astronaut away from the base. Second is the subtitle. Well, this is not really the film's fault anyway. But the subtitle that I got together with it isn't that accurate (spelling, timing, as well as the sentence structures), and I don't speak any Russian for me to try to understand the dialogue just by its sound.

I really like this film. I like the plot, I love the setup, I really enjoy the horror and the atmosphere, and overall I would say it is kinda fresh, in my opinion. I am definitely recommending this to you guys.
