#1 - Replicas

Join Chris as he analyzes & reviews Replicas, the 2019 sci-fi drama thriller movie, directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff & starring Keanu Reeves.

A scientist becomes obsessed with bringing back his family members who died in a traffic accident.
Pet Sematary with Keanu Reeves as a scientist?! Sounds like perfect B-movie material!

But does it deliver on it's premise? Does it have the budget to match it's ambition? Does it have the cardinal B movie sin, of trying to be good? Is Keanu as awesome as he is in John Wick?

Most importantly, what was that ending?!

#2 - The Vanishing

Join Chris as he analyzes & reviews The Vanishing, the 2019 mystery/drama movie, directed by Kristoffer Nyholm & starring Gerard Butler.

Three lighthouse keepers on the remote Flannan Isles find a hidden trunk of gold, leading to their mysterious disappearance..
Pretty inviting premise for a thriller movie based on a real event, right?

But does it satisfy as both a movie AND a theory on the actual mystery? Is Gerard Butler capable of giving a nuanced performace anymore? Is the film slow? Is it violent? Is it pretentious?

Most importantly, did the ending deliver?
