Colossal

★★★☆ – (2016) – A troubled woman learns her role in monster attacks that are befalling Seoul. A unique and refreshing spin on giant creature movies, complete with highly involving characters and a plethora of surprises. Some of the dramatics are on the stiff side, but when all is said and done there’s nothing quite like this, which is a great thing.

Jigsaw

★★☆☆ – (2017) – Five people play vicious games against murderous devices while detectives and medics try to piece together where and why. Has clever moments and spots of violence that remind us of the days of Saw lore, but there’s never a moment that doesn’t feel unnecessary. Not a complete waste, but the reasons for bringing the series back only add confusion.
