INSTANT REVIEW: The X-Files (Fight the Future) (1998) (5/5)

Plays out like an extended episode of The X-Files. If you like the X-Files, you'll love the movie too. If you've never seen it before, probably not the best introduction. Scully is cute as hell too. Lots of tundras. The return of the Black Oil.

INSTANT REVIEW: Don't Breathe (2015) (1/5)

It isn't scary enough to cover up the thin plot. The twist isn't enough to cover up the shallow characters. However, it does get this year's award for least-realistic HVAC system in cinema, which is good for a laugh.

Supposed to be (2016). That's one more swipe at this: it felt like this was would have been ground-breaking in the distant past.

[b]INSTANT REVIEW:[/b] The China Syndrome (1979) (4/5)

It's very exciting. Pro-nuclear power types might feel uneasy for obvious reasons, but the movie doesn't feel too hysterical in dealing with the subject matter and remains tense to the very end. I want to gush about the ending because I really liked it: particularly the bit in the control room - but instead I'll just SCRAM the review here to keep it short.

INSTANT REVIEW: The Nice Guys (2016) (3/5)

One of the best buddy cop pictures in a long time with a great setting. Unfortunately, if you've seen the trailer, you've seen all the best parts. If you haven't, you're in luck!

INSTANT REVIEW: Limits Of Control (2009) (3/5)

Beautiful cinematography is the real highlight of a film that is slow with an insubstantial story.

Basically Brave New World with film tropes from Logan's Run to Pleasantville. Secret appearance by Taylor Swift!

INSTANT REVIEW: Citizen X (1995) (3/5)

It's a serial killer investigation with light gore set in the Soviet Union. I'm sold on that specific combination, but it's not actually very good. You can safely skip it despite the artificially high score.

INSTANT REVIEW: Doctor Strange (2016) (4/5)

It's like Iron Man with magic. Well, more magic, I guess. Not a fan of comic book stuff, but I had a good time.

INSTANT REVIEW: Arrival (2016) (4/5)

It's nice to see some genuinely interesting sci-fi, but there's a whole subplot I just don't understand. Like, ethically. I enjoyed the ride anyway.
