The Six Last Movies I’ve Watched

The Menu (2022) is about a chef that prepares dishes with consequences for those he invites to his exclusive restaurant on an island. From the start there is something off about Julian Slowik (Ralph Fiennes) and as the night progresses, his guests soon want the night to be the next morning. It has an ending that every horror/thriller movie should emulate.

Shanghai Knights (2003) is a continuation of Chon Wang (Jackie Chan) and Roy O’Bannon (Owen Wilson) teaming up for misadventures. This time Chon’s sister is out to revenge the death of her father with the help of her brother and Roy. The train scenes are the funniest in this action/comedy.

Edge of Tomorrow (2014) is the reliving of certain moments by William Cage (Tom Cruise). He is an officer who has to find out how to defeat the enemy. The only problem is the enemy are aliens that appear to be smarter and more skillful than humans. The other problem is establishing a working relationship with Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) every time he dies in this action/adventure.

Rogue Agent (2022) is about a conman named Robert Freegard. He posed as an MI5 agent and swindled money from women after he told them they were in danger. His luck eventually ran out when one of his victims was suspicious and helped uncover his illegal activities. This drama/thriller is based on real events because hiding in plain sight is more common than you think.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) is the last movie of the trilogy about the remaining gladers that are immune from getting infected. Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) with the help of his friends saves those being experimented on behind the city walls including Minho (Ki Hong Lee). He also wants retribution and answers for those who had betrayed them. This action/adventure is somewhat predictable but entertaining to watch for the stunts.

Imperium (2016) is about a newly FBI agent, Nate Foster, going undercover as a white supremacist. He finds himself persuasively appearing as an asset to a terrorist group that doesn’t flash their tattoos or take part in riots. Instead, he gains their trust to thwart their plan, which will hurt many people. This crime biopic is based on a true story with a climactic ending.
