I watched Promising Young Woman earlier and it floored me. It's equal parts horrifying and hilarious and Carey Mulligan is absolutely terrific in it. The rest of the cast is also amazing, so many well-known actors in small but impactful roles.

1. Promising Young Woman 10/10 (possibly first impression hyperbolic rating)
2. The Mortuary Collection 5/10
3. The Handmaiden 9/10

This is my most anticipated movie at the moment. I’m even willing to pay a silly price for it.

Watched Beckett last night on Netflix, i think it's one of the most poorly acted and written films I've seen, an instant classic of bad. But the first half was set on a part of the country that I love pretty much and rarely gets cinematographed, so that bit was interesting.

Totally agree. Lots of ridiculous moments of luck to push the plot along.

Rebecca, the remake. Didn't like the acting of the lead actress and would have casted the roles of Kristin Scott Thomas and Ann Dowd vice versa. Keeley Hawes felt like playing Mrs Durrell and I cannot see Tom Goodman Hill without thinking of that scene with Jemma Chan, or Armie Hammer without thinking that I want to be 18 and seduced by him, which were all quite destracting. Still the story is so good that none of these matter, but it's also kind of pointless considering how much better the original is.

The Swarm, on Netflix again. It is not based on the environmental thriller book of same name but follows a dysfunctional family in rural France who eat locusts. No one of the family is likeable except their goat Huguette. The acting is not bad but the whole plot thing is lazy slow and not adequately justified and you can feel the metaphors being pushed down your throat in what feels like forever. Good intentions lazy execution.

Just watched Stuck Together on Netflix.
It's a little French film set during the time of the first quarantine.
For the most part it's a comedy though it got me crying my eyes out by the end.
