Charlie’s Angels (2019)

“Are we on a boat?” “Yeah.” *Cue reflective pop music*. This odd scene with Sabina making funny faces with a little girl exemplifies the fun femme B-movie charm that K. Stewart in particular brings (“I need you to exhibit some attention-seeking behavior.” “I have so many ideas!”); it’s just a shame the rest of the script is such an awkward mess, especially in the second half (see the unecessary asides with Fatima and Langston). Good fight choreography though, and the Brok break-in was well¬†done.

Green Room (2015)

green-room-poster2

A punk rock band is forced to fight for survival after witnessing a murder at a neo-Nazi skinhead bar. (IMDb)
Like an underground punk rock band, it’s full of grisly, violent riffs, sweaty people losing themselves in the emotion of it all, and writing that’s maybe a little rough around the edges. The attack then retreat to green room formula works well though, while still managing to surprise you at points, and the cast of villains led by a chilling Stewart is definitely creepy, if maybe a little over-the-top. Hard to watch, but only because it’s so effectively crafted and disturbingly unflinching.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
