Spiderhead poster

A decent, but very clean and polished sci-fi film. Don't expect anything too grand or futuristic, this is near-future sci-fi about a new drug being tested on inmates. Modern interiors and a nonexistent drug are all you're getting here, but it's enough for an amusing film, just not one that'll leave a big impression.

Tests are being carried out with a drug that is supposed to eradicate all bad human behavior. The tests are looking promising, but to make sure there are no nasty side effects, the drugs (and the test subjects) are pushed to their limits. Boundaries are crossed, and extreme risks are being taken.

Hemsworth and Teller are decent picks, but not ideal for their parts. The film looks slick enough and the pacing is decent, there's just nothing that really stands out. It's one of those films that passes the time perfectly fine, without trying something new or exciting. Decent sci-fi filler in other words.

Dubious filler

Top Gun: Maverick poster

The newest Top Gun took 35 years to materialize, but apart from three of so smartphones it just as well could've been made the year after. If you like 80s action cinema and don't mind heavy nostalgia this film won't disappoint, if you're hoping for a modern upgrade, don't even bother with Maverick.

After screwing up a test mission, Maverick is on his way to early retirement, when his old pal Ice calls him up for one final mission. Not to fly himself, but to teach a bunch of younger prodigies. Maverick isn't entirely convinced of the plan, but since he has no other choice, he accepts the mission.

Cheesy music, lots of references to the first film, tons of unearned sentiment, a sense of cool that hasn't evolved for 35 years, and some action scenes that may be quite practical in nature, but aren't that impressive to look at. It's a film that belongs to a bygone era, I just hope it doesn't start a new hype because this was pretty horrible.
