THIRTEEN LIVES

Twelve boys and the coach of a Thai soccer team explore the Tham Luang cave when an unexpected rainstorm traps them in a chamber inside the mountain.

Quick takeaway: Intense, but so good. I felt a little claustrophobic watching them dive, but I think that’s the point. If you loved The Impossible, this is a must-watch.

DAY SHIFT

An LA vampire hunter has a week to come up with the cash to pay for his kid’s tuition and braces. Trying to make a living these days just might kill him.

Quick takeaway: I enjoyed it, but I’m not sure if the movie loses itself about 2/3 in or if I was too tired and missed a crucial 45s that would have bridged the tempo change.

It’s a “hot take” on a vampire hunting thriller. If I had to pick similar movies, I’d say The Cabin in the Woods, Hansel and Gretel, and Van Helsing.
