The absolute standout this week is a Netflix movie - it's the first of three horror films based on RL Stine's Fear Street series of books. It's part one of a trilogy of films with one debuting every week for the next three weeks. I'm told the first one is fun.
I'm also keen to see The Tomorrow War on Amazon Prime Video. A huge budget, Chris Pratt high concept film. Reviews are, politely, middling. Peter Bradshaw at The Guardian gave it this entertaining pan:
The film seems to go on and on like something by Wagner; but it finally ends, thanks to some vital expertise provided by one of Dan’s high school students, with a plot turn which perhaps owes something to the final act of the classic comedy Galaxy Quest. It all feels like a heavy meal, and the action scenes and the creature effects are very derivative.
