Eric’s Review: Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021)

Eric’s Review: Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021)

★★★ out of ★★★★★
Once more into the maze! It’s still full of tricks, traps, misdirection, and impossible challenges. As it was the last time, the killer escape rooms are hugely imaginative, even if the overriding plot isn’t. It’s an entertaining low-calorie thrill ride that is as entertaining and exciting as a roller coaster, but it has about as much nuance and character development as an carnie ride as well.

The Scariest Things Review: The Forever Purge (2021)

The Scariest Things Review: The Forever Purge (2021)

★★★1/2 and ★★★★ out of ★★★★★
The Purge series has a way of reflecting the anxieties of the moment, and the latest installment, The Forever Purge, pours gasoline on the subject of immigration and the ugly political divide within the United States. It is a ferocious dystopian view that if you squint, is frightening as to how close we are to this dark reality. Your feelings about this film may get framed largely from your political point of view.
