    The Copy
    This film has great characters with great actors, great shooting and phenomenal editing. It is very obvious from the start that this is going to be a slaughterhouse, so the end should be thing that surprises you. It does not. The reason is that this movie is basically Split with a different context. Anna Taylor Joy kidnapped by a maniac, same plot points, almost same movies up and downs, the radio scene and the window scene, all the interactions they have and the conclusion where she gets to walk away for being smart, although not entirely equal, it feels, looks and smells like Split. Hell, the final sequence of her eating a burguer made me feel that if you put the girl in split in this movie, it would be the same movie. They feel like a copy of each other with some traces changed so it fits the narrative. That truly ruined it for me, I knew the ending and solution by the moment I made the connection. As she clapped her hands I stood emotionless for the whole duration of the scene that took place. Same concept, same idea and same execution. Honestly disappointed.

    There's the signpost up ahead
    Caught The Menu on HBOMax (after a hassle with my computer HBOMax link)...It's okay but disappointing. I'd heard good things but anyone worth his salt will see where it's going right from the start. A gaggle of obnoxious types are gathered on a remote island by a famous chef to be treated with his culinary masterpiece. It stars Ralph Fiennes, Any Taylor-Joy, Nicolas Hoult, John Leguizamo, Judith Light and Janet McTeer It essentially feels like a drawn out Twilight Zone episode. "Professor...The rest of the book..." I suppose it could be a satire on the habits of snobbish gastronomes. There used to be restaurants in New York that would serve an appetizer of one asparagus spear with a squiggle of Hollandaise.
