Poster for the movie "Spectral"

Spectral

Netflix is busy making its own movies now. Despite the bigger budgets, their decision to adopt a slightly different approach to movie production than the big studios leads to a flatter feel for some movies. It allows them to explore ideas that big studios may not and, in the process, generate the 21st century equivalent of ‘straight to cable’ movies. Spectral is – to be fair – better than the ‘straight to’ movies yet still doesn’t quite live up to the expectations or ‘pitch’ you are sold in the trailer. A watchable sci-fi that could have benefitted from a little more script work.

Shutter Island

A tale of psychology and suspense told well. DiCaprio plays the part well, as do the rest of the cast, and while the asylum format may have been played many times before and since (e.g. SuckerPunch), Scorcese’s masterful hand and Kalogridis’ excellent screenplay adeptly keep you guessing until the end where all the strands of string are tied together and the puzzle finally makes sense, raising this entry into this canon exemplary.
