Clique Series 1 – Review by Kris Scott

**SPOILERS**

The Scottish drama that you probably didn’t know about created by the talented former p06qh2jp‘Skins’ writer Jesse Brittain.

‘Clique’ follows Holly McStay played by a relatively new comer called Synnøve Karlsen (When you watch this show you’d think she’s been doing this for ages). Holly is a university student just beginning her first year in Edinburgh with her best pal since childhood Georgia Cunningham (How rare is that in real life?)

One day they go into a lecture led by the charismatic Jude McDermid and her brand of feminism lures both Holly and Georgia to discover more.

Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis): He is a killer. But he will be killed tonight.

Halloween (2018) was an unexpected hit, I went into the cinema with low expectations due to the previous instalments which for me destroyed this franchise created by horror mastermind John Carpenter those forty years ago.

Outlaw King begins with the beautiful shot of a candle burning which I believe is symbolic in the way it represents the continuing fire burning within the Scottish people to revolt against the occupying English army.  This symbol could be likened to the context of Scottish Independence today in modern politics with Scotland’s candle still burning…..

But I’m not here to talk about that! Lets get to it!

10 Cloverfield Lane – Review by Kris Scott

SPOILERS*

MV5BMjEzMjczOTIxMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTUwMjI3NzE@._V1__SX1303_SY615_Howard Stambler (John Goodman): I’m sorry, but no one’s looking for you.

Haunting words for the beginning of a film, wouldn’t you agree. 10 Cloverfield Lane is a tension driven drama that we view through the eyes of Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) a confused car accident victim who wakes in a bunker owned by one Howard Stambler (John Goodman). The majority of the film takes place within Stamblers underground ‘safe place’ adding to the tension.

Sicario (2015)- A thrilling blend of action, intelligence and morality.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve.

By Kris Scott

Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro): You should move to a small town, somewhere the rule of law still exists. You will not survive here. You are not a wolf, and this is a land of wolves now.

After being attracted to Villeneuve’s work through Prisoners (2013) I pushed myself to watch anything really by this director, he seems to have a thing for grabbing you by the throat and making your heart stop due to the nerve-wrecking tension.
