arrival_trailer2

(10) Arrival

Time is not linear,

how we speak is how we think,

says hard sci-fi.

20maggie1-master768

(9) Maggie’s Plan

A Miller screwball comedy,

Gerwig plays all,

save Slavoj Zizek.

(8) The Daughter

Ibsen but not Ibsen,

secrets and lies in Oz,

sins of the past bite.

1200

(7) Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Majestical Taika Waititi,

makes smart sight gags,

and smarter lines.

(6) Look Who’s Back

Borat with Hitler,

painting in Bayreuth,

and a bit with a dog too.

the-neon-demon

(5) The Neon Demon

Refn the garish provocateur,

subverts Keanu,

bloodies glitter.

(4) Queen of Earth

Two women by the lake,

one loses her mind,

the other doesn’t mind.

Deadpool International Quad

(3) Deadpool

Take usual plot,

discuss usual plot in the plot,

a dead shot.

nice-guys-movie-crowe-gosling-angourie-rice

(2) The Nice Guys

Laurel and Hardy fight crime,

Laurel’s daughter the brains,

but not Waltons.

high-rise2

(1) High-Rise

Tower block descends into anarchy,

the residents…

kind of like it.
