2017 | Drama

An engrossing study of female repression and resultant psychopathy...

2017.08.28

Logan Lucky

8.0

2017 | Action | Comedy | Crime

The script is laden with genuinely funny situations throughout and the actors are all given their opportunities to shine.

2017.08.27

The Work

10

2017 | Documentary

The emotions captured here are almost unbearably raw and real...

2017.08.22

8.0

1983 | Horror | Suspense | Mystery

A surprisingly worthy sequel...

2017.08.21

A Ghost Story

10

2017 | Fantasy | Drama | Love

A quiet, modest film which successfully communicates thematic ambition far beyond what most filmmakers could conceive as possible.

2017.08.12

Atomic Blonde

8.0

2017 | Action | Suspense | Mystery

When taken as a stylishly violent piece of entertainment with an intriguing background, Atomic Blonde has her finger right on the button.

2017.08.11

The Big Sick

8.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy | Love

A very funny film and cleverly written...

2017.08.06

England Is Mine

5.0

2017 | Drama

Only worth watching for its performances, and even then only barely.

2017.08.05

Dreamscape

7.0

1984 | Adventure | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

One of the best aspects here is the acting.

2017.08.05

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

7.0

2017 | Adventure | Action | Science fiction

A feast for the eyes and the dreams...

2017.08.03

The Beguiled

8.0

2017 | Drama | Western

If you can accept the slow-as-molasses pace early on, The Beguiled is a truly beguiling piece of artistically-crafted entertainment.

2017.07.29

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

7.0

1953 | Fantasy | Music

The film’s not entirely successful but it’s so wildly unusual that it has to be experienced.

2017.07.28

Dunkirk

8.0

2017 | Drama | Action | History | Suspense | War

The pacing is faultless, the evocation of the horror of war is truly disturbing despite the lack of overt Saving Private Ryan-style gore.

2017.07.23

Stormy Monday

2.0

1988 | Drama | Crime | Love

I couldn’t stand the film and find it hard to recommend unless you’re a completist.

2017.07.22

The Right Stuff

10

1983 | Drama | History

The performances are outstanding all round.

2017.07.21

Hellraiser

8.0

1987 | Horror

Still a must inclusion on any horror fan’s bucket list.

2017.07.21

Belladonna of Sadness

10

1973 | Fantasy | Animation | Drama | Music

A surreal one-of-a-kind masterpiece...

2017.07.20

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

5.0

1977 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action | Science fiction

The dullest and tattiest of the three movies, despite having been made on a considerably higher budget.

2017.07.19

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

8.0

1973 | Adventure | Fantasy | Drama | Action

This one improves on The 7th Voyage in some aspects, but is slightly weaker in others.

2017.07.19

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

8.0

1958 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

The acting is somewhat hammy, but the plot is well-constructed and the characters’ actions have believable consequences.

2017.07.19

The Amityville Horror

4.0

1979 | Drama | Horror | Suspense

The film really doesn’t stand up unless discussed in context with the fascinating surrounding back story.

2017.07.11

Spider-Man: Homecoming

8.0

2017 | Adventure | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

The story is a little too conservative and predictable. Nonetheless, the whole film’s so much fun that it’s not a big problem.

2017.07.09

Flash Gordon

8.0

1980 | Science fiction

A Rocky Horror-style audience-led musical indulgence...

2017.07.07

Kedi

8.0

2017 | Documentary

An important piece of food for thought...
