Poster for Song to Song

Song to Song

6.0

2017, Drama, Music, Love

Rambling, disjointed and self-indulgent - albeit largely on purpose.

2017.06.26

Poster for Sami Blood

Sami Blood

7.0

2017, Drama

It may not be a film for all tastes, but it can’t be accused of being anything less than interesting.

2017.06.24

Poster for In This Corner of the World

In This Corner of the World

8.0

2016, Animation, Drama

Beautiful, arty and achingly human.

2017.06.23

Poster for My Life as a Zucchini

My Life as a Zucchini

8.0

2016, Animation, Drama

A beautiful film, maybe a little slight in terms of overall storyline but amply rewarding...

2017.06.17

Poster for The Mummy

The Mummy

4.0

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Suspense

The non-stop mayhem will bore anyone who isn’t an undiscriminating popcorn junkie.

2017.06.16

Poster for The Dirty Dozen

The Dirty Dozen

6.0

1967, Adventure, Action, War

An enjoyable if rather dated and overlong mix of war critique and straightforward shoot ‘em up.

2017.06.11

Poster for Lifeforce

Lifeforce

6.0

1985, Fantasy, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

Unfortunately, the script is littered with inconsistencies and bites off a lot more than it can reasonably chew.

2017.06.06

Poster for The Other Side of Hope

The Other Side of Hope

7.0

2017, Drama, Comedy

An effective mirror of shame reflected back at Europe’s shameful treatment of unfortunates desperate to escape the horrors of their home countries.

2017.06.03

Poster for Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

7.0

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction, War

Does stand out by working some new angles into the currently-oversubscribed superhero movie cycle.

2017.06.02

Poster for Harmonium

Harmonium

8.0

2017, Suspense

As food for thought it’s certainly one of the more rewarding and twist-heavy films out there.

2017.06.01

Poster for The Red Turtle

The Red Turtle

10

2016, Fantasy, Animation, Drama, Science fiction

By turns charming, melancholic, suspenseful and inspiring, but really something to be experienced subjectively and personally.

2017.05.29

Poster for Quadrophenia

Quadrophenia

8.0

1979, Drama, Music

The film’s engaging energy along with its empathy for its rather sad main character make it well worth seeing.

2017.05.26

Poster for 12 Angry Men

12 Angry Men

10

1957, Drama

An inspirational and insightful look at the nature of judgement and justice, and an absolute must-see for any film fan.

2017.05.24

Poster for Outland

Outland

6.0

1981, Science fiction, Mystery

Outland is a rather average film, but passes - especially if you are a fan of sci-fi films from this early 1980s period.

2017.05.22

Poster for Colossal

Colossal

8.0

2016, Fantasy, Drama, Comedy, Science fiction

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

2017.05.21

Poster for Cha shou

Cha shou

8.0

1981, Action

Another hugely entertaining Shaw Brothers production.

2017.05.20

Poster for White Dog

White Dog

8.0

1982, Drama, Suspense

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

2017.05.17

Poster for Brain Damage

Brain Damage

6.0

1988, Horror, Comedy

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

2017.05.16

Poster for Alien: Covenant

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

Poster for The War of the Worlds

The War of the Worlds

8.0

1953, 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

Poster for Experiment in Terror

Experiment in Terror

7.0

1962, Suspense, Crime

A stylish if overlong thriller with some great moments.

2017.05.10

Poster for The Age of Shadows

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

Poster for The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

8.0

2016, Drama, Love

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

2017.05.05

Poster for La guerra del ferro - Ironmaster

La guerra del ferro - Ironmaster

2.0

1983, Adventure, Action

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