    ★★★★

    There are visual effects that leave your jaw hanging to the floor because you can see the money on the screen. Spectacle that impresses with the sheer size of the effort and talent that went into its making.

    Then there are visual effects that make you go 'huh, I guess they just went and filmed this on an actual desert planet with real spaceships and ornithopters'

  • The Wrestler

    The Wrestler

    ★★★★

    Captures professional wrestling at its bleakest - godlike, larger-than-life icons of the ring reduced to physical wrecks addicted to the roar of an adoring crowd. Broken old men going back to the very thing that broke them because they have nothing - and nobody - else in their lives. It's sad and deeply moving.

    A terrific performance from Mickey Rourke. He's so believable it hurts.

    I'd come back from the dead for short-haired Demi Moore too.

    Overlord

    ★★

    Thinks being loud is the same as being exciting, full of obvious jump scares and boring characters. There's some fun to be had, both intentional and otherwise, but it's mostly a waste of a cool premise.
