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...

2017.04.08

Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance

8.0

1972 | Drama | Action

This one pushed things that bit further in terms of the amount of limb-chopping, blood hosed from open wounds and suchlike.

2017.04.08

Ghost in the Shell

4.0

2017 | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

Go and watch the original anime film, its sequel or the spin-off Stand Alone Complex TV series instead.

2017.04.01

Fright Night

8.0

1985 | Horror

A highly enjoyable 1980s horror film despite a few dated elements.

2017.03.31

Killer Constable

10

1980 | Adventure | Action

One of the finest, most exciting action films around - but it is also so much more than that.

2017.03.28

Hell Drivers

8.0

1957 | Drama | Action | Crime | Mystery

Despite its somewhat dated action filming and depictions of women, Hell Drivers stands as an intelligent and energetic piece of British cinema.

2017.03.22

Personal Shopper

6.0

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Mystery

One of those “not quite” movies that seems to work better in parts than as a whole.

2017.03.19

The Adventures of Robin Hood

8.0

1938 | Adventure | Action | Love

Simply great, unpretentious entertainment for all ages - nothing more and nothing less.

2017.03.15

Certain Women

10

2016 | Drama

A rewarding piece of work for those willing to pay attention and soak in the quiet artistry that is evident in every frame.

2017.03.13

Monster Hunter

5.0

1981 | Horror

There’s little reason to watch Absurd apart from the gore.

2017.03.12

Elle

10

2016 | Drama | Suspense

A truly memorable piece of cinema and is bound to be a subject for extended cineaste discussion for many years to come.

2017.03.11

The Anderson Tapes

7.0

1971 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Crime

Might not be the finest film by Sidney Lumet, but it is an enjoyable relic from its era.

2017.03.09

Bunny Lake Is Missing

8.0

1965 | Suspense | Mystery

It’s somewhat implausible but it is hugely entertaining and has an imaginatively worked-in undercurrent of perversion and delirium.

2017.03.06

Logan

8.0

2017 | Drama | Action | Science fiction

Takes a new blood-soaked, poignant angle on a genre which has become increasingly cluttered and in danger of sinking under the law of diminishing returns.

2017.03.03

Cul-de-sac

8.0

1966 | Drama | Comedy | Suspense

A little too weird and rambling to stand as one of Polanski’s best films but it is a lot of fun if you go with its bizarre, unexpected vibe...

2017.03.03

Free Fire

6.0

2017 | Action | Comedy | Suspense | Crime

It certainly scratches an itch for those wanting to see a talented cast relieve their stresses by blowing holes in each other with handguns.

2017.03.01

Dead Heat

6.0

1988 | Drama | Horror | Action | Comedy | Suspense | Science fiction

Isn’t “dead good” but it’s still enjoyable enough.

2017.03.01

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

10

1975 | Adventure | Fantasy | Comedy

So archetypically British in its quaint, homegrown way of making the best of circumstances.

2017.02.26

Charade

8.0

1963 | Comedy | Suspense | Mystery | Love

A stylishly enjoyable espionage escapade.

2017.02.25

Heat

8.0

1995 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Crime

A tad overrated, though still well worth seeing for anyone with an interest in police dramas.

2017.02.24

After Hours

8.0

1985 | Drama | Comedy | Suspense

A lot of fun if you go with its farcically terrifying nature.
