Poster for First Man

First Man

7.0

2018, Drama, History

A solidly respectable one with several outstanding moments of pure cinema.

2018.10.13

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

9.0

2018, Drama, Music, Love

Although slightly overlong, it’s a film whose emotional imprint will stay with you for a long time after the end credits have rolled.

Poster for Night of the Creeps

Night of the Creeps

7.0

1986, Horror, Comedy, Science fiction

There’s plenty of enjoyment to be gleaned from this zippy, unpretentious 1980s horror-comedy.

2018.10.07

Poster for Venom

Venom

6.0

2018, Action, Science fiction

Could have been great had the filmmakers and studio not fumbled the ball on a few occasions.

2018.10.06

Poster for Monkey Shines

Monkey Shines

8.0

1988, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

A fine, intelligent chiller which provides a strong case for George Romero being remembered for more than just shuffling, intestine-munching corpses.

2018.10.05

Poster for Revenge

Revenge

2017, Horror, Action, Suspense

An absolute must for those who think they can stomach it.

2018.10.03

Poster for Best Worst Movie

Best Worst Movie

7.0

2009, Comedy, Documentary

All in all, it’s a satisfying real-life tale on how a bad movie cloud can, in time, generate its own silver lining.

2018.10.03

Poster for Troll 2

Troll 2

2.0

1990, Horror

While it’s far worse than the original Troll, it’s immeasurably more enjoyable and certainly moves along at a lively pace.

2018.10.03

Poster for Troll

Troll

4.0

1986, Fantasy, Horror

A pretty bad movie. It’s not so-bad-it’s-good either; it’s just kind of meh bad, albeit just about tolerable to sit through thanks to its game cast.

2018.10.03

Poster for Paura nella città dei morti viventi

Paura nella città dei morti viventi

6.0

1980, Horror

A lively enough piece of delirious Italian nastiness.

2018.10.01

Poster for 城市獵人

城市獵人

7.0

1993, Adventure, Action, Comedy, Love

This is a decent enough presentation of what is arguably Jackie Chan’s strangest film.

2018.09.30

Poster for Salvador

Salvador

8.0

1986, Drama, History, Suspense

While it occasionally rambles, Salvador is a truly harrowing and all-too-realistic depiction of war with a side order of moral redemption.

2018.09.24

Poster for The Predator

The Predator

4.0

2018, Horror, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

Quite frankly, the most disappointing film which I’ve seen so far this year.

2018.09.21

Poster for The Producers

The Producers

6.0

1967, Comedy

Even the otherwise grating Franz Liebkind character has his moment in the spotlight. It’s a pity that getting to this part of the film is a bit of a slog.

2018.09.20

Poster for Lucky

Lucky

8.0

2017, Drama

While Stanton’s the star here, the supporting cast also contribute their share of memorable moments to the film.

2018.09.17

[title unknown]

6.0

This Italian genre oddity won’t appeal to everyone. However, it’s undeniable that we get yet another superb-looking print from Arrow...

2018.09.14

Poster for Heathers

Heathers

10

1989, Drama, Comedy, Suspense

A stone cold 1980s classic.

2018.09.09

Poster for The Odessa File

The Odessa File

6.0

1974, Drama, Suspense

On the sluggish side but still worth seeing mainly for the story, Voight’s performance and some tense moments of action.

2018.09.03

Poster for Zimna wojna

Zimna wojna

10

2018, Drama, Love

It’s a truly emotive and passionate work - not in the sense of being manipulative but in the sense of a pure poetry and artistry which has gone into every single moment of screen time.

2018.09.02

Poster for Death Line

Death Line

7.0

1972, Horror

May not be a perfect horror film but it is certainly a cut above average. It’s gruesome, atmospheric and intelligent all at once.

2018.09.01

Poster for Ministry of Fear

Ministry of Fear

8.0

1944, Drama, Crime

Solidly recommended to both Fritz Lang and film noir fans.

2018.08.29

Poster for BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman

9.0

2018, Drama, Comedy, History, Crime

It tells a truly eye-opening and socially important tale in a manner which entertains and disturbs in equal measure.

2018.08.26

Poster for 警察故事續集

警察故事續集

7.0

1988, Action, Suspense, Crime

Has a bit more depth and is better constructed than the first film but, on the downside, doesn’t offer quite as much in the way of pure, unfettered fun.

2018.08.26

Poster for 警察故事

警察故事

8.0

1985, Action, Suspense, Crime

A textbook example of the reasons why Jackie Chan became firmly established as one of Asia’s biggest movie stars during the 1980s.
