INSTANT REVIEW: Videodrome (1982) (4/5)

Deeply unsettling. The owner of a sleazy television station intercepts an extremely violent television broadcast from a satellite and finds himself involved in something much stranger than he bargained for. Existenz was a poor copy of this. Graphic sex, violence, sexual violence. Extremely unreliable narrator.

INSTANT REVIEW: Star Trek Beyond (2016) (3/5)

Fast & Furious In Space was too outlandish even for those guys, so instead they made this. It works. Maybe the odd-numbered ones will be the good ones this time around.

Tom just tweeted about vulnerable children in Africa. Admirable. I think he's trying to reclaim his prior image as a humanitarian/thespian. Let's light a candle that he can phase shift away from the relationship spectacle tabloid stories.

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.

INSTANT REVIEW: The Giver

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