Ariane Anantaputri (A Drip Town Lemory Mane: The Podcast) and Petros Patsilivas (Caged In: Coppola Connections) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Ariane’s choice Army of the Dead. Army of the Dead is the 2021 Zack Snyder zombie heist action horror film. Based on a story he created and a sort of possible sequel to his remake of 2004’s Dawn of the Dead. This time the city of Las Vegas is infected by a new breed of the undead after a collision with an army convey carrying a zombie picked up from Area 51. In an attempt to control the zone, a wall of container blocks is built and a countdown to a nuclear explosion is set. A team of mercenaries is put together by a nefarious casino owner to drop into Las Vegas and recover $200 million from his casino before it is nuked. It quickly becomes apparent that money may not be the motivation for this mission. Army of the Dead’s runtime is two hours and 28 minutes - the plot of Army of the Dead runs closer to about an hour and 30 mins max. Somewhere in it is a fairly entertaining heist countdown with zombies and a zombie tiger but it is bogged down with subplots around alpha zombies, unnecessary father/daughter reconciliation and some vague commentary of refugees.   [supsystic-tables id=222] Unsurprising that Army of the Dead receives mixed reviews for recommendability and even less surprising is its low scoring on repeat viewing and small screen score. Army of the Dead scores 2.54 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Army of the Dead? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Claer Barrett (FT Money Clinic podcast) and Patrick Mills (Pages of Hackney bookshop) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Claer’s choice Enola Holmes. Enola Holmes is a 2020 young adult mystery adventure film, based on the novels of the same name, about the teenage sister of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Enola Holmes, delightfully played by Millie Bobby Brown, is left literally alone when her mother Eudoria Holmes (Helena Bonham Carter) mysteriously disappears on the day of her sixteenth birthday. Her brothers, Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin) arrive and decide to send Enola to finishing school, determined to discover what has happened to her mother, she escapes dressed as a boy and heads to London. Enola Holmes is perfect family home viewing, not especially taxing on the brain and just about justifies its two hours runtime. Originally planned for a full cinema release but due to the pandemic it instead went to Netflix and was it’s biggest first day opening Netflix title of 2020 - expect sequels. [supsystic-tables id=221] Enola Holmes scores generously across most of the Flixwatcher categories, let down a little by low repeat viewing (saving it for the sequels!) and scores a respectable 3.88 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Enola Holmes? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Emma Kathryn and Paul Costello from The Yearbook Committee podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Emma’s choice Death Becomes Her. Death Becomes Her is a 1992 goth, camp, PG body horror comedy starring Meryl Streep as Madeline and Goldie Hawn as Helen life long frienemies and Bruce Willis Dr. Ernest Menville, the long suffering man in the middle. Isabella Rossellini co-stars as Lisle von Rhuman the eternally youthful provider of the magic potion both Madeline and Helen take to preserve their youth and beauty. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, Death Becomes Her is notable for its groundbreaking special effects - winning the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects - that are both deeply grotesque and also humorous. The film was a moderate success at the time but in recent years has found a place as a fond cult classic and has been adopted by the queer community.   [supsystic-tables id=220] Death Becomes Her scores very highly across recommendability from guests and Flixwatcher and generously across all the other categories only to fall short on small screen to score 3.95 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Death Becomes Her? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Daryl Bär (Sudden Double Deep podcast, Is Paul Dano Ok?) and Matt Brothers from (Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast and also Is Paul Dano Ok?) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Daryl’s choice Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is the fourth film in the Mission:Impossible film franchise and was released in 2011. directed by Brad (The Incredibles) Bird Ghost Protocol sees Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg reprise their roles as Ethan Hunt and Benji Dunn and introduces Jeremy Renner as William Brandt, with Léa Seydoux and Michael Nyqvist as the villains. Ghost Protocol is notable for its insane Burj Khalifa scene where Ethan has to scale the exterior, an increased role for Pegg as the comedy sidekick for Cruise and no masks. Everyone looks like they’re having the most fun in Ghost Protocol - starting a shift in the tone from the previous films to what would become the Christopher McQuarrie M:I films.   [supsystic-tables id=219] Ghost Protocol scores very highly across recommendability, repeat viewing and engagement and only let down by small screen and scores a super high 4.53 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Ghost Protocol? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Ashanti Omkar (film critic and journalist) and Akin Aworan (The Swinging Palm Tree Podcast) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Ashanti’s choice Rocks. Rocks is a British coming-of-age drama from director Sarah Gavron starring Bukky (BAFTA Rising Star 2021) Bakray as Olushola "Rocks”, a black teenager who suddenly finds herself the sole carer for her younger brother Emmanuel when her mother disappears. Despite being surrounded by her compassionate and close-knit friends, Rocks struggles to keep things together and find a safe space for her and her brother to stay while trying to evade social services. Rocks is both a story of female friendship and being a teenager in Britain today but also a heartbreaking reality of social care and the financial and mental hardships of single-parent families. Empowering and uplifting, credit must be given to casting director Lucy Pardee for bringing together an authentic and energetic group of inspiring actresses who carry the whole film.   [supsystic-tables id=218] With a runtime of 93 minutes, Rocks doesn’t overstay its welcome and scores highly on recommendability but it let down by repeat viewing with it being a tough watch and scores a very respectable 4.18 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Rocks? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
