Gli invasori

8.0

1961, Adventure, Action

A quintessential and highly entertaining example of how sheer in-camera ingenuity and imagination can triumph over the kind of financial constraints...

Stamps its own monochromatic imprint on the vampire movie landscape.

1985, Drama, Suspense, Science fiction

It all concludes with a suspenseful, explosive climax and a hauntingly strange, poetic final image.

Poster for Xtro

Xtro

6.0

1982, Horror, Science fiction

One of those movies which is best watched late at night, preferably after some form of intoxication.

2018.06.09

Poster for The Defiant Ones

The Defiant Ones

8.0

1958, Drama, Crime

Stanley Kramer's rather obvious (albeit well-meaning) message doesn’t overwhelm the film’s considerable entertainment value.

Poster for No Way Out

No Way Out

8.0

1950, Drama, Suspense, Crime

Another fine piece of classic-era cinema...

2018.06.05

Poster for Jake Speed

Jake Speed

4.0

1986, Action, Comedy, Suspense

A film with one or two nice ideas but it comes up short in terms of execution.

2018.06.02

Poster for Inherit the Wind

Inherit the Wind

10

1960, Drama, History

An utterly gripping look at how religious dogma and populist politics can threaten to tip the scales of justice away from reason and open-minded inquiry.

2018.06.02

Poster for Smash Palace

Smash Palace

9.0

1982, Drama

Another powerful and imaginative piece of New Zealand cinema...

2018.06.01

Poster for On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach

7.0

2018, Drama

While On Chesil Beach amounts to a powerful tale of doomed love, it’s not without its faults.

2018.05.27

Poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

5.0

2018, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Isn’t outright bad, it’s a rather lacklustre and uninspiring action flick which happens to be tied in with a phenomenally popular space opera franchise.

2018.05.26

Poster for The Grifters

The Grifters

10

1990, Drama, Crime

An outstanding film which has never quite been given the full credit that it is due.

2018.05.25

Poster for The Old Dark House

The Old Dark House

8.0

1932, Drama, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

A truly underrated horror classic.

2018.05.23

Poster for Space Truckers

Space Truckers

4.0

1996, Adventure, Comedy, Suspense, Science fiction

A lame space comedy that’s paradoxically worth watching once for the sheer imagination on display and for Dennis Hopper’s fine performance.

2018.05.17

Poster for Breakheart Pass

Breakheart Pass

7.0

1975, Western, Suspense, Mystery

A decent enough 1970s action-adventure.

2018.05.14

Poster for Best F(r)iends: Volume One

Best F(r)iends: Volume One

6.0

2018, Drama, Comedy, Suspense

It’s a true Frankenstein’s monster which doesn’t quite know how to place itself within this whole Sestero-Wiseau continuum.

2018.05.12

Poster for Rawhead Rex

Rawhead Rex

5.0

1986, Horror

Both something of a wasted opportunity and an undeniable guilty pleasure.

2018.05.07

Poster for Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

6.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction

Ultimately offered both too much and yet, paradoxically, too little.

2018.05.04

Poster for Irma Vep

Irma Vep

10

1996, Drama, Comedy

One of those wonderful and original movies that’s hard to pigeonhole but somehow occupies a unique place in the memory.

2018.05.04

Poster for Marty

Marty

8.0

1955, Drama, Love

Well-acted, well put together and undeniably heartfelt.

2018.04.28

Poster for Have a Nice Day

Have a Nice Day

6.0

2018, Animation, Crime

Carves out a distinctive stylistic niche that’s hard to dismiss.

2018.04.27

Poster for Super Inframan

Super Inframan

6.0

1975, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Isn’t exactly a great film. However, it is a diverting way to kill an hour and a half in the cheesiest possible way.
