First Men in the Moon

6.0

1964 | Adventure | Science fiction

Has its moments but ultimately feels a bit blah.

2017.11.21

Jason and the Argonauts

10

1963 | Adventure | Fantasy

An archetypal Bank Holiday favourite which holds up remarkably well even after all of these years.

2017.11.21

Mysterious Island

7.0

1961 | Science fiction

Decent, colourful science-fantasy fun.

2017.11.21

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

5.0

2017 | Drama | Love

It’s a real shame that such a great Annette Bening performance has ended up in such a dispiriting film...

2017.11.18

Murder on the Orient Express

6.0

2017 | Drama | Crime | Mystery

A film which largely does what it says on the tin and does so with enough overall style and charm to make it hard to resent.

2017.11.17

The Ice Pirates

6.0

1984 | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

It could have been great if the tone was more consistent...

2017.11.17

Wolf

6.0

1994 | Fantasy

Worth watching for its occasional bold ideas and a fine cast.

2017.11.17

The Big Combo

8.0

1955 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Crime | Mystery

A memorable noir thriller with a catchy jazzy theme by David Raksin.

2017.11.17

Force of Evil

10

1948 | Drama | Action | Crime

Deservedly ranked as a noir classic.

2017.11.17

Secret Beyond the Door

6.0

1948 | Drama | Suspense | Crime

It’s a bad melodrama that’s paradoxically well worth watching due to some truly great moments of cinema.

2017.11.17

The Dark Mirror

8.0

1946 | Suspense

A well-crafted and involving thriller, albeit not quite a perfect one.

2017.11.17

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover

9.0

1989 | Drama | Crime

A visually beautiful affair.

2017.11.14

Assault on Precinct 13

8.0

1976 | Action | Suspense | Crime

Works very well as a piece of economical action cinema...

2017.11.11

Network

10

1976 | Drama

Performances are fantastic across the boar...

2017.11.10

The Wicked Lady

5.0

1983 | Adventure | Drama

Enjoyable on a shallow level.

2017.11.10

Guardians of the Galaxy

9.0

2014 | Adventure | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

One of the finest Hollywood blockbusters of recent years.

2017.11.10

Women in Love

8.0

1969 | Drama | Love

It’s overlong and somewhat waffly on occasion - its sense of cinema as a means to transport and express is undeniable.

2017.11.10

Witchfinder General

7.0

1968 | Drama | Horror | History

The sense of tension is well-orchestrated with great use of back-and-forth edits.

2017.11.10

Absolute Beginners

6.0

1986 | Fantasy | Drama | Music | Love

Charming in its own way.

2017.11.09

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

8.0

1986 | Drama | Horror | Suspense | Crime

Remains a frightening, untameable enigma, eluding any comfort blanket of psychological understanding and rationalisation...

2017.11.09

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

10

2017 | Drama | Horror | Suspense

Has a touch less of Dog’s jaw-droppingly batshit creativity but it’s more immaculately-crafted all-round.

2017.11.07

Miracle Mile

10

1989 | Suspense | Science fiction | Love

A fantastic one-of-a-kind apocalyptic thrille...

2017.11.03

Departures

7.0

2008 | Drama

An absorbing if somewhat sombre drama about appreciating and understanding the cycle of life.

2017.11.03

Loving Vincent

10

2017 | Animation | Drama

As a one-of-a-kind look at what drives an artist’s creativity, it’s an absolute must.
