"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #30: Wes Anderson's study of grief and the relationship between a father and son is incredibly cathartic and very very funny."
|60 42%||Candyman (1992) - Apr 05, 2020
"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #30: Candyman excels in creating chilling lore for its title character, who is portrayed brilliantly by Tony Todd. The music and direction are hauntingly beautiful which keeps in line with the tone of the film. Although Madsen was a good foil to our antagonist, she, and the film by extension, still fell to numerous slasher tropes."

"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #29: Romero's sprawling epic is a timeless classic. Even now its biting satire on American consumerism and materialism ring true (Black Friday anyone?). The fleshed-out characters and smart script separates itself from countless braindead zombie films. Foree outshines everyone (bar Savini & his exceptional special effects) and it resulted in is his 2nd most memorable role, after Roger Rockmore of course."

"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #28: First of all, the first half is excruciatingly boring with awful writing and acting from everyone except the chimp and Pleasence. The music cues were so strange, ruined any bit of suspense it had (if it had any). However, it sort of salvaged itself in the last 20 with an absolutely bonkers chain of events, but by then the damage had already been done."

"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #27: The good first, it's a sweet story with good intentions rather than the run-of-the mill Bollywood schlock. The bad however is that it falls prey to pretty much every Bollywood trope there is."

"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #26: Pretty standard and stock story but both Lee Marvin and Glenn Ford are fantastic."

"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #25: The Mount Everest of musicals, can't get better than this. I bet if I had Lina Lamont as my alarm tone I would wake up asap."
|50 33%||The Protector (2005) - Apr 03, 2020
"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #24: Caught this late-night on the telly and thought why not, a Thai martial arts film will be a fun midnight viewing. For the most part, it was, Tony Jaa and the action was insane. However, it did not make up for the poor script and god awful acting. "
|75 67%||It Comes at Night (2017) - Apr 03, 2020
"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #23: Although marketed as a straight-up horror film, it is actually a very moody and tense psychological drama. Really loved the ambiguity and slow burn of the whole situation. Well worth a watch but don't expect to the film to hold your hand."

"Under Quarantine Film Reviews #22: Michael Stuhlbarg is the best, but sucks at trying to fix his aerial."
