– (2017) – A space station crew is stalked by an alien that increases in size as it kills. Has too many moments that remind of superior films (Alien, Gravity, Species) and is nearly destroyed by a lousy script that has characters constantly saying and doing stupid things. Does have occasional tension, and the conclusion is effective even though it’s the result of incompetence.
– (2017) – A boy who has strange dreams escapes disguised creatures from another dimension by slipping into their dimension. Yes, there’s a gunslinger, and yes, there’s a man in black, but not much else is reminiscent of the novels. Very few (if any) characters or situations are explained, rendering this a confusing mess.
– (2007) – A man inadvertently travels back in time to avoid a killer, and gradually learns the dark ramifications of repeating the past. Has a unique premise that takes plenty of unexpected turns, although some events can feel muddled. Has moments that question logic, but is moderately gripping overall.
– (2017) – Tornadoes of sharks summoned at Stonehenge whisk those who try to stop them to different parts of the world. Does squeeze out some fun in the pre-credit sequence, but afterwards takes a steady decline into repetition and boredom. Some actors do teach a valuable lesson though: don’t get too much plastic surgery.
– (2010) – A former soldier is hired to bring in a genetically altered shark/octopus alive, but all the thing wants to do is kill people. Nothing unlike the dozens of other mutant-animal-attack movies, but does begin with a sense of fun at the expense of stupidity. Slows an hour in and becomes repetitive, but does have some dopey highlights.
– (2017) – An ancient evil is unleashed in the form of an Egyptian woman, and it’s up to archaeologists to stop her. Gets off to a decent start with some excitement and humor, but hits the brakes halfway through, adds one subplot too many, and stops making any sense. Worsens by the minute, and continually loses focus.
