Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, a young warrior girl fights against a predator that landed on Earth. The highly evolved alien with a technically advanced arsenal seem like an infeasible adversary for the Native Americans equipped with bows and arrows. But the girl, Naru, is a resilient little combatant. The Predator franchise yet with another follow-up and where it’s not wholly bad, it’s rather predictable and not very exciting.
To cure his cancer, a sick and desperate John Kramer travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical treatment and procedure. However, the entire operation is a scam. So John turns the tables on the con artists and it’s a payback time! And he has new tricks up in his torture sleeve! Saw X, by Kevin Greutert, is one of the best movies in the Saw franchise, probably the best since the original (2004).

Miller (Nicolas Cage) wants to hunt down all the buffaloes and sell their hives. He's obsessed with his profession really. Lost his mind with the shit. He's led his posse far from any civilization to senselessly slaughter as many animals as possible, but surviving in the wilderness is a bitch. One of those movies that you are waiting something to happen, but nothing really does. Based on the acclaimed novel by John Williams.

Quite lost in the The Nun and The Conjuring franchise. They are pretty cool scary pictures on their own right, but I don’t have the patience or the interest to follow the big picture. The Nun II, by Michael Chaves, is a follow-up to the gothic horror we’ve enjoyed in the past. Set in 1956 France, people are shit-cared by demon nun Valak.
A documentary film that focuses on ancient Finnish folklore and mythology. Ukonvaaja translates to The Hammer of Ukko. Musician, poet and household shaman A.W. Yrjänä guides us through the whole thing. Awkwardly narrow outlook on the subject, but quite entertaining still.
Sure as shit it’s crapped full of 80s naivety and it’s cringe-worthy now, but so are the most of the action movies of the yesteryear. Steven Seagal, Jackie Chan or Chuck Norris never pulled off such coolness as Sylvester Stallone in Cobra (1986) or in his other bits. Much like his pal Arnold Schwarzenegger, it’s not Mel Gibson or Bruce Willis or, god forbid, Clint Eastwood, but it’s worth your while. A strange murderous cult runs rampant in the city of Los Angeles and hard-as-nails Lieutenant Cobra stands in their way.
