Poster for the movie "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.
