Housing the look, feel, and story beats of a noir mystery thriller, ‘Terminal’ fails to capture any of the magic or narrative elements that propel these stories to greatness.


‘The Host’ could have been an exploration of internal conflict, or a mystery that questions whether Melanie still exists in this body that once belonged to her. Unfortunately all is explained from the moment the movie begins, and we are left to trod the cinematic desert without a drop of tension to sustain us.
