REview – The Pool (2018)

The Pool isn’t a bad film, but it’s isn’t terribly good either. Let me explain. Theeradej Wongpuapan (who carries most of the movie, along with a CGI–I think.

It’s also a horror movie–or perhaps should I say ‘social thriller’–starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke (both most recently seen in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War) What the […]
