Blade of the Immortal

10

2017 | Drama | Action

Another twisted triumph from Takashi Miike...

2017.12.09

Pulp

5.0

1972 | Drama | Crime | Mystery

There are a lot of good ingredients in Pulp but it doesn’t blend into a particularly tasty or satisfying dish.

2017.12.08

The Disaster Artist

8.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy | History

It’s contrived and predictable but in the most unashamedly enjoyable way imaginable.

2017.12.07

The 400 Blows

10

1959 | Drama

A must for anyone who has ever been, and/or raised, a misunderstood youth.

2017.12.07

The Man Who Fell to Earth

10

1976 | Drama | Science fiction

A wonderful film...

2017.12.06

Blood Feast

6.0

1963 | Horror

A crude and sloppy film but that doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining.

2017.12.05

Blue Velvet

9.0

1986 | Drama | Suspense | Crime | Mystery

Something very distinctively Lynch and frankly confounding until you let it sink in and connect on an entirely subconscious plane.

2017.12.05

The Room

0.0

2003 | Drama | Love

Bow down in awe and reverence at its pure unfettered awfulness!

2017.12.04

The Pumpkin Eater

10

1964 | Drama

A fine release of a criminally overlooked film...

2017.12.04

Mad Love

8.0

2014 | Drama | Comedy | Love

A thoughtfully-crafted and subtly humorous film which is likely to cause a divergent range of opinions amongst viewers.

2017.12.02

Lost in Paris

7.0

2017 | Comedy

As lovingly crafted as it is, your own level of enjoyment largely depends on how much you enjoy burlesque slapstick comedy acts.

2017.12.01

The Blues Brothers

9.0

1980 | Music | Action | Comedy | Crime

The film is just a whole lot of fun, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

2017.11.30

Enter the Ninja

5.0

1981 | Drama | Action | Crime

Nowadays it is clear that it’s a pretty ropey affair, albeit moderately entertaining in its own cheesy way.

2017.11.30

The Premonition

7.0

1976 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

Well worth a look for those who like their horror restrained, thoughtful and relatively low on gore.

2017.11.28

The Witch Who Came from the Sea

8.0

1976 | Drama | Horror

An underrated and genuinely disturbing psychological horror.

2017.11.27

Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood

5.0

1973 | Horror

To my mind it is more of an interesting but messy experiment than an unsung classic.

2017.11.26

Frank

8.0

2014 | Drama | Comedy | Mystery

Blackly funny, bittersweet and strange.

2017.11.24

The Conversation

10

1974 | Drama | Crime | Mystery

An exceptionally well-constructed film.

2017.11.24

Beverly Hills Cop

8.0

1984 | Action | Comedy | Crime

There’s just enough grit and edge here to keep the proceedings from feeling too lightweight, but not to the extent of overwhelming the humour.

2017.11.23

Bullitt

7.0

1968 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Crime

Still a pretty good watch despite the issues which come to light when seen in retrospect.

2017.11.23

The 'Burbs

7.0

1989 | Horror | Comedy | Suspense

The comic situations, veering from sly satire of middle class American concerns to broad Chevy Chase-style slapstick, are generally pretty funny.

2017.11.23

Sunday Bloody Sunday

8.0

1971 | Drama

A fine and imaginatively made movie, if a little overlong.

2017.11.23

Eyes of Laura Mars

4.0

1978 | Drama | Horror | Suspense | Mystery

Kershner only grapples fleetingly with either idea and largely settles for a pedestrian, talk-heavy mystery.

2017.11.22

Escape from New York

8.0

1981 | Action | Science fiction

Stands up as an amusing and stylish effort...

2017.11.22
