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.

The Highwaymen (2019) – Review

After the FBI struggle to get the job done, two former, notorious Texas Rangers, Frank Hamer (Kevin Costner) and Maney Gault (Woody Harrelson), are tasked with using their gut instinct and every bit of experience they possess, to track down and eventually stop the rain of terror being caused across America by the infamous outlaws, Bonnie and Clyde. A pretty steady Netflix tale which is based on a true story. It’s worth noting that this review was based solely on the movie I watched at the time and not the true story it was based off.

Proxima (2019) – Review

When French astronaut Sarah Loreau (Eva Green) receives the news that she will soon be involved in a year-long space exploration mission called Proxima, the laborious training at the European Space Agency in Cologne begins, aswell as the agonising personal decisions that have to be made, particularly those that involve her eight-year-old daughter, Stella (Zelie Boulant). A really effective and at times emotional drama that is worth every bit of the modest one-hundred and seven-minute runtime.

When a recluse’s quiet, and relatively peaceful life, is turned upside down upon hearing about the release from jail, of a man connected to the death of his parents, he embarks on a crazy and reckless quest of vengeance, acting as an amateur cutthroat hitman, in order to seek revenge, but also protect the estranged family he has left too.
