In a packed reviews section, we kick things off with the sprawling and unruly noir thriller Bad Times at the El Royale, before discussing a double bill of Oscar hopefuls with Neil Armstrong biopic First Man and the musical romance A Star is Born. Finally, we delve into the world of masked killers and gore for the new take on Halloween, which sees Jamie Lee Curtis return as Laurie Strode – cinema’s original ‘final girl’.
In the news, we chat about the upcoming reboot of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, as well as the revelation that the Star Wars spin-off focused around Boba Fett is now dead. In the quiz, Tom leads with questions about slasher films and movies about space.
