#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?

#3 - Climax

Join Chris & Amanda as they analyze & review Climax, the 2018 horror dance movie, directed by Gaspar Noe & starring Sofia Boutella.

French dancers gather in a remote, empty school building to rehearse on a wintry night. The all-night celebration morphs into a hallucinatory nightmare when they learn their sangria is laced with LSD.

From the creator of Enter The Void, comes a thriller film that is a trip to say the least..but is it a rewarding experience?
What's the story? How's the dancing? Is it actually a horror movie? Is it violent? Are there any twists? Will anyone ever take LSD after seeing this?

Most importantly, is this better than Black Swan?!

#4 - High Life


Join Chris as he analyzes & reviews High Life, the 2019 space drama thriller film, directed by Claire Denis & starring Robert Pattinson.

A father and his daughter struggle to survive in deep space where they live in isolation.

Before he's Bats, R Patts ventures to space in a sexy thriller that dares to go to new frontiers that most movies will dare not!
But is it a satisfying space movie? How's the cast? What's the story? Is there a twist? How does it compare to other greats like 2001: A Space Odyssey? Will anyone let the dogs out? Is there too much rape? 
What's the f*ckbox?

Most importantly, why isn't it linear?
