The Nest (2020)
Infuriating and badly written
This starts off well with the first two episodes and goes downhill from episode 3 onwards. The final episode is just infuriating, needlessly stupid and random decisions from the characters make no sense, its then neatly wrapped up in the last 10 minutes.
There is the basis of a good story but in the end it's ridiculous, makes no sense and all of the drama is made by making the characters do silly things. Could have been good but was actually terrible.
First Season is Pretty Good
The first season is pretty good but the protagonist Cardinal is annoying. Hes arrogant, mopes around and seems to think he knows everything but doesn't actually do anything - it's his female partner that solves the crucial parts. He constantly mumbles and acts as if he's the only cop who gets anything done but he's actually pretty useless. Annoying. Apart from this it's pretty good if you're in the mood for a snowy scandi noir type of series.
Da 5 Bloods (2020)
So, so bad
I'm a Spike Lee fan but this was just terrible in every way. Even the great actors cant do anything with such a terrible script. Everything about it is amateurish, the story makes no sense, the characters are so unbelievable and cartoonish that you can't feel anything for them. I honestly can't emphasize how surprisingly bad this is. Until the 90 minute mark I thought the film was going to reveal itself to be a satire or something then I realized that we were supposed to be taking the whole thing seriously. From there it just gets worse and worse. The good parts of the movie like the message and info about black soldiers in Vietnam is undercut by the awful delivery. If you like Spike Lee avoid this and rewatch blackkklansman or do the right thing...
Save Me: Episode #2.4 (2020)
Does anybody know how he finds the house where Jody is being held?
First half is ok, second half is truly awful
I had high hopes for this film and the first half was ok if not without its flaws. The tensions within the crew and overcoming problems were somewhat interesting even if the crew were unprofessional considering they were "humanities last chance".
However, the second part where the superhuman burned man comes aboard is more or less unwatchable! It makes no sense and you can barely tell what is happening. When I can follow the action i just don't care whether they save earth or not. I don't know who made the choice to go in that direction but it makes the movie a complete waste of time. Avoid.
Girl on the Third Floor (2019)
After reading the reviews I was expecting this to be terrible but it was actually pretty good. Nice camera work, a good lead performance and good tension. The only thing that let it down for me was the last 10 minutes which is when the story lost its way.
Still, as a big horror fan this was better than 90% of the dross that's released.
Give it a go and you will probably be surprised!
The Captive (2014)
This is a truly awful film - the only good part is Reynolds performance.
It starts off with some promise then just deteriorates into a muddled mess.
The story makes no sense and is just infuriating - the police suspect the father immediately without investigating any leads then 8 years later they still suspect him without any evidence! Well, apart from the fact that the detective is "reminded of something from his past" Jesus.
Its full of clichés and some of the lines that the actors have to deliver made me cringe. In the end I was laughing, its so bad its funny.
The bad guys are like something from a cartoon - but to be honest the actors do a decent job with a truly awful script.
Honestly, don't waste your time.
