    Orphans of Ebola

    ★★

    I feel so horrible about giving this a bad rating but it has nothing to do with those kids or their stories... I just wasn't a fan of how they presented the doc.

  • Let Us Prey

    Let Us Prey

    ★★★½

    A pretty good horror movie that separates itself from the pack by having a unique blueprint. The acting is great, the story is interesting, but the scares are minimal. But in the end thats ok bc the plot and suspense and mystery more than make up for it. Plus it has Sir Davos (who should've been the Hand) so thats awesome.

    The Ones Below

    ★★★½

    3.75*
    It can get slow at times, but the payoff is totally worth it plus the chills along the way are fun too. Great thriller/mystery movie. Very well acted, as the characters more than adequately evoke the emotions from us that the director would've hoped for. I definitely recommend this to fans of horror or thrillers.

  • Homegrown: The Counter-Terror Dilemma

    Homegrown: The Counter-Terror Dilemma

    ★★½

    I think this doc could've been more successful if they focused on more than 1 case. It was nice delve deep into the case, but it's such an incredibly small sample size that it's very hard to draw conclusions and assertions based on it. And I thought they would focus more on the machinations of the counter terrorism process. All in all I wouldn't recommend this doc.
