The Toybox

2018 | Dir: Tom Nagel | 1h 35m

Denise Richards and Mischa Barton star in this atrocious D-movie about a sentient RV with a penchant for killing people. I wasn't expecting the film to go in that direction explicitly, but it really does lean into it and provides an ultimately unsatisfying - although somewhat comedic - film that just made me more sad than anything else. The acting is bad, the lines are bad and the deaths are merely okay. This is a hard pass, sorry.

Dark Age

1987 | Dir: Arch Nicholson | 1h 31m

Although it falls pretty short of being Australia's equivalent to Jaws, Dark Age does not disappoint. Tagged in the horror and adventure genre, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but the film ended up being quite fun. There are some shocking moments, fun characters and no shortage of villains as our heroes race to take care of the killer crocodile before the entire croc population is savagely eradicated.

Hellboy (2019)

 

The hype is deflated. It's anti-hype. This movie is going to be awful. Rotten Tomatoes decrees it so.

Well, that's not going to stop me from checking this film out, and that's just what I did on opening night (well, technically Thursday previews, but still). I apologise if some of this is ambiguous, I am trying to avoid spoilers here.
