Colossal

8.0

2017 | Fantasy | Drama | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

Should be commended for its originality and emotionally-intelligent narrative.

2017.05.21

Cha shou

8.0

1981 | Action

Another hugely entertaining Shaw Brothers production.

2017.05.20

White Dog

8.0

1982 | Drama | Suspense

Commendable for its approach to the thorny subject matter of racism...

2017.05.17

Brain Damage

6.0

1988 | Horror | Comedy

More of a lo-fi curiosity than a bona-fide classic.

2017.05.16

Alien: Covenant

5.0

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

Ridley Scott: please, please, don’t do another Alien film. This is an improvement but it’s still a misfire.

2017.05.12

The War of the Worlds

8.0

1953 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

Broadly holds up well as both a piece of sci-fi entertainment and a chilling parable of the 1950s era...

2017.05.11

Experiment in Terror

7.0

1962 | Suspense | Crime

A stylish if overlong thriller with some great moments.

2017.05.10

The Age of Shadows

8.0

2016 | Drama | Action | History | Suspense

While the more violent aspects here aren’t for everyone, fans of Jee-woon Kim’s other films should feel right at home.

2017.05.07

The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

8.0

2016 | Drama

There’s little in the way of dramatic fireworks but it’s highly satisfying in its small pleasures.

2017.05.05

La guerra del ferro - Ironmaster

2.0

1983 | Adventure | Action

Unless you are a die-hard fan of Italian exploitation, Ironmaster is best skipped.

2017.05.04

Hard Times

7.0

1975 | Drama

At its heart it’s a rather predictable and linear fighting career movie...

2017.05.03

The Lady from Shanghai

9.0

1947 | Drama | Crime | Mystery

An outstanding, hugely entertaining thriller.

2017.05.02

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

6.0

2017 | Adventure | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

Feels like a huge, unsifted creative brainstorming session amongst Marvel’s finest talents...

2017.04.30

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster

6.0

1959 | Adventure | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

An entertaining low budget film despite its problems.

2017.04.20

The Handmaiden

10

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Love

Presents elaborate female characters in the forefront of the picture, and does so in a truly radical manner. Chalk it up as another must-see.

2017.04.18

Fat City

8.0

1972 | Drama

An atmospheric, pathos-laden paean to society’s losers and damaged.

2017.04.16

2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York

6.0

1983 | Horror | Action | Science fiction

There’s plenty wrong with 2019, but it’s entertaining if approached in the right spirit.

2017.04.13

The Big Heat

8.0

1953 | Drama | Crime

There is an abundance of great, hardboiled lines, with Ford and Grahame naturally getting the lion’s share.

2017.04.11

Raw

10

2016 | Drama | Horror

However, what really holds the film together isn’t the stunning visuals, the subversive subtexts or the gross-out horror; it’s the performance by Garance Marillier.

2017.04.10

Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell

6.0

1974 | Action

Definitely the weakest of the series.

2017.04.08

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in the Land of Demons

9.0

1973 | Action

The action is less outrageously over-the-top than in previous instalments but is still intense stuff...

2017.04.08

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril

10

1972 | Action

It's one of the finest Chambara movies of all time.

2017.04.08

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades

7.0

1972 | Drama | Action

Gets bogged down in an overly cluttered story for the first hour.

2017.04.08

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx

10

1972 | Drama | Action

The body count is huge and the methods of despatch endlessly inventive...
