For what we get, this is a great ride. Until it stops, right in the middle of the story, with character arcs unfinished and the overall narrative paused.
One of the better sequels, containing all the requisite elements to make it popular among horror film lovers regardless of their ages.
There’s nothing here to elevate "The Electrical Life of Louis Wain" out of the “generic bio-pic” basket.

Scott transforms "The Last Duel" into a deconstruction of chivalry and an exploration of the ugliest aspects of misogyny in the late Middle Ages.
"Lamb" is very much a visual experience, relying on tone to buttress narrative weaknesses.

Enough not only to whet the appetite for the TV Series, "The Sopranos," but to provide a moderately satisfying meal in its own right.
With its short running length, this drunk-on-CGI production is less a movie and more the outline of something ambitious.
A series of loosely connected skits, this lacks a coherent narrative and appears to have been targeted almost exclusively at the pre-teen crowd.
There’s a dissonance between the film’s darker subjects and its seeming desire to offer something uplifting at the end, and the mediocre songs are a distraction.
