SS: 8/10 Unlike other Quentin’s film, but other Quentin’s film. It more like a mixtape, all Quentin elements you can find in this.

Once you heard the name, Quentin, the first thing in your head definitely are those massive violent scenes. Blood splashed everywhere, broken human parts laid on the ground… If you have those expectations, want to watch a classic violent Quentin film, then this may or may not let you down. I have to tell you that this film does have blood splashing and other violent parts, but this film is not about violence.

Although this film is based on the real incident, Tate Murder, but the story of the film is telling you a different story. By the way,


This review will have slight spoilers, just a wee little bit, please feel safe to continue your reading.

Quentin is still that Quentin, as I said above, all his elements you can find in this film. Quentin used two fiction characters show the whole picture of the last century’s Hollywood. In this film, you can see two normal Hollywood actors (Well, an actor and a double) set in this golden age background, they try to fight for their future, want to have a new start back into audience’s sight. But Hollywood is Hollywood. It never lacks talents. The director used these two “normal” guys and the story between them to rebuilt the 1960s Hollywood.

The story flow has its own speed, and each chapter connects to each other smoothly. The whole story from beginning to the end, every part of this film seize your attention tightly. But the length of the film could be a challenge for people who not usually watch a film for 3 hours, This film can easily lose him at some point of it.

Overall, this is a very classic Quentin style film and totally worth to spend your time on it. I can’t spoil, so, not much can say, but just go watch it.


SS: 6/10 Unlike other horror films, Crawl‘s way to express the horror element is more like a lucky draw.

After a long period of silence, the horror film finally returned to the cinema. However, audiences are getting pickier than before after recent horror films’ training, the audience began to get tired of the traditional jump scared. Crawl provides a form of horror that is not new but is rare in recent years.

Let the characters aside, ’cause people always act stupid in horror film. The way that Crawl control the atmosphere is other horror films don’t have. Unlike ghost haunting, you may don’t know what is next shock for you, Crawl told you from the very beginning of the film, gators, they hid in the water, in the dark, in the corner of your eyesight. And you always know what they capable and what way they are going to jump out. Because the audience knows, it makes the film even more horrifying than others. Just like Jaws, you know what they can do, so you know the shock is anytime now, which makes the atmosphere tenser and really bring the audience into the scene.

However, this film does have a weird character building. The daughter and his father’s background story did not help the film show the beauty of humanity, compared to the cold-blooded crocodiles. There is no effective emotional interaction between the father and daughter. The film is too focused on giving the daughter a reason to save her and explain why she can swim so fast.

Overall, Crawl is a horror film with a relatively novel theme in recent years. It is especially brilliant in a pile of ghost films. It is worth two hours of the weekend to experience the nightmare from the deepwater crocodiles.
