Godzilla vs. Kong

★★☆☆ – (2021) – Kong is released from his habitat to protect humans against Godzilla, while a new enemy aims for supremacy. The human characters are worthless, which is expected, but the biggest problem is that the monster battles have no stakes. The CGI mayhem is fairly decent when it does arise, but it’s still just CGI mayhem that lacks any sort of tension since it simply doesn’t matter who wins or loses.

Psycho Goreman

★½☆☆ – (2020) – Two kids unleash an intergalactic demon who’s pursued by a variety of enemies. Despite some top notch creature designs and ambitious F/X, there’s not much here to recommend since the story and its characters are so painfully shallow. Worst are the attempts at humor that too often fall flat, while the lead actress is nothing short of unlikable.

Possessor

★★☆☆ – (2020) – A woman is transported into the minds of others to carry out assassination missions. On the plus side, this continuously makes you wonder what’s happening. On the minus side, none of the answers are gratifying. The concept is intriguing, but the execution is plagued by a sluggish pace and what feels like forced confusion. The violence is effective, though.

Circle

★☆☆☆ – (2015) – A large group of people appear in a small room where they’re picked off by an unknown source every few minutes. Spends 99.9% of its time focusing on lousy actors who shout rancid dialog in what’s little more than a Saw VI clone. A trivial and irritating drag that’s devoid of any talent.

Elizabeth Harvest

★★☆☆ – (2018) – A young bride gradually learns of her domestic role while locked up in her wealthy husband’s estate. Creates a mystery with developments worth investing time in, but by the mid-point the crawling pace becomes a nagging hindrance. A quicker stride would have helped, as too many plot points are narrated at a near-whisper. Decent concept, dull execution.

Deep Blue Sea 3

★½☆☆ – (2020) – Global warming researchers come under attack from a mutated breed of shark at their floating facility. Has more fighting among the human characters than their watery counterparts, as shark attacks are sporadic and too choppily edited. An incredibly dull venture that lacks excitement and chemistry among any two characters.
