🍿 Prey, 2022 - ★★★★ (contains spoilers)

    This review may contain spoilers. A Predator movie is only as good as its protagonist. The dialogue can mostly suck, as it does here. The CG effects can look like trash, as they too often do here. The plot can be an early colonial-American choose-your-own-adventure story, as it (mostly) is here. But if you have 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger, or 2022 Amber Midthunder, you will have a movie worth your time, and worthy of a theater run.

    Moon, 2009 - ★★★★★

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5 out of 5 stars) This is the last one for today, I promise. Another rewatch, Sam Rockwell’s performance puts this movie on a level with The Martian.  I know they’re very different movies, but, for my money, Moon does at just as much with fewer/older VFX and a much lower budget. How much lower? Well, The Martian had a $108 million budget. (Source, via Wikipedia) Moon had a $5 million budget.

    Annihilation, 2018 - ★★★★

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4 out of 5 stars) I can confirm in watching this movie again that it is ambitious, original and has a fully committed cast. If you like sci-fi and somehow haven’t seen Annihilation yet, do yourself a favor and watch it.

    The Menu, 2022 - ★★★

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3 stars out of 5) I don’t regret watching this and I would certainly recommend it to certain people, but I’m not sure I’ll ever need to watch it again.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, 2023 - ★

    ⭐️ (1 star out of 5 Wouldn’t watch again, wouldn’t recommend The story was incoherent except as a forced setup of Kang and of passing of the Ant-Man-tle to Lang’s daughter.
