Replicas

Keanu Reeves goes old school in retrograde sci-fi thriller

Replicas feels more like a Syfy Channel “mockbuster” parody of a sci-fi film than an actual sci-fi film. The effects grow increasingly junky, and the whole thing devolves into a poorly staged string of chases scenes involving lots of interchangeable guys in black suits with guns.

Emma Stone waits her turn

Film Review

The Favourite

Mean and nasty historical drama makes ambition a courtly enterprise

The Favourite is loopy, long-winded and devolves into increasingly misanthropic spirals, but has wonderfully deadpan humor, scabrous assessment of female power dynamics and a well-played lesbian twist.
