The Platform (2019) – Review

When a man known only as Goreng (Ivan Massague) signs up to voluntarily become a prisoner of a vertical system that holds two people per cell, per floor, he quickly comes to the realisation that he has signed up for more than just six months of solitary confinement. Each cell has just two minutes per day to feast on the platform of food that they are presented with and the lower the platform goes, the less food there is. An unbelievably imaginative feature film that is currently streaming on Netflix.

Tenet (2020) – Review

John David Washington stars as a secret agent recruited by a mysterious organisation called Tenet, weaving his way through a twilight world of international crime on a mission to prevent Andrei Sator (Kenneth Branagh) starting World War 3, thus changing the course of humanity. An unbelievably hyped movie that has finally hit the big screens over the past week or two, but a complex one that definitely requires a second viewing to be fully appreciated.

When he starts earning major cash from his new career venture, the future seems bright, but while juggling mixed emotions and morale decisions on a daily basis, the reality of the situation he finds himself in, quickly brings him back down to earth.

Corona (2020) – Review

When a handful of people that barely know each other get trapped inside a broken elevator, tensions rise and their fear of each other becomes quickly apparent, especially considering the fact that the Coronavirus had just come to fruition. As far as indie films go, probably not the finest I’ve set my eyes on this year, but at the same time it did have one or two redeeming qualities that made the flick just about watchable on a whole. Corona was presented to me in exchange for an honest and fair review prior to its release in September, 2020.

Upon this happening, a local cop must team up with a teenage dealer and former soldier, fuelled with a personal vendetta to take down the group responsible for its creation and circulation.
