All in 7.5/10

Crawl Review

Crawl reminds me a lot of the genre films I loved watching growing up in the late 90’s-early-2000’s, movies that did their rounds consistently on TV which included Lake Placid, Anaconda, Deep Blue Sea, Rogue and Snakes on a Plane. They’re thrill rides from start to finish, at times silly — some more than others — but a fun ride. And Crawl is very much that: a fun ride.

Aladdin Review

The latest live-action remake to come out of Disney’s pipeline is here and this time it’s Aladdin. Aladdin hasn’t had the smoothest ride to the big screen with casting issues, accusations of colourism and the internet’s reaction to Will Smith as Genie at several points before the film’s release. While this version is unlikely to replace the 1992 animated film as people’s preferred version of the Aladdin story, it is a bit of fun and a solid modernisation of the story.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Review

How To Train Your Dragon is one of the best cinema experiences I have been fortunate to enough to have had. Flying through the skies with Toothless for the first time was a joyous moment that brought a wide grin to my face. There was just a certain magic to that film and How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is proof that that magic is very difficult to recapture.

Anna and the Apocalypse Review

Anna and the Apocalypse calls itself a “Christmas Zombie Musical”, a combination I didn’t know I wanted until I did a Reacts video for the trailer with Dylan. While its pitch might get people people to watch it, the film is good enough to make sure people won’t think of it as just a gimmick movie.

Get Out

Jordan Peele is most known for 'Key and Peele' the comedy skit series starring himself and Keegan-Michael Key. His directorial debut, although containing some funny moments, is a full blown horror that plays off, like most great horror movies do, real life issues.
