Dark Fate is the sixth Terminator film. It can't live up to the legacy of the terrific first two installments, but all in all, it's pretty decent. My review is up at Screen International.

Tell Me Who I Am is a Netflix documentary about Marcus and Alex Lewis, twin brothers who have lived extraordinary (and tragic) lives. I spoke to director Ed Perkins, who talks about making a film about abuse and recovery. It's live at MEL.

Black and Blue is a good ol' fashioned, meat-and-potatoes action-thriller about a good cop (Naomie Harris) who's trying to stay alive after running afoul of some criminals and crooked policemen. The ambitions are modest, but the execution is solid. My review is up at Screen International.
I enjoyed Zombieland. Was I pining for a second installment? No. For MEL, I wrote about the dangers of making sequels to so-called "cult classics." (I also talked about Twinkies and Donald Trump.) The whole thing is right here.
