Poster for Hard Times

Hard Times

7.0

1975, Drama

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

Poster for The Lady from Shanghai

The Lady from Shanghai

9.0

1947, Drama, Crime, Mystery

An outstanding, hugely entertaining thriller.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

6.0

2017, Adventure, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

1959, Adventure, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

An entertaining low budget film despite its problems.

The Handmaiden

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.

Poster for Fat City

Fat City

8.0

1972, Drama

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

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.

Poster for The Big Heat

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.

Poster for Raw

Raw

2017, 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

Poster for Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell

Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell

6.0

1974, Action

Definitely the weakest of the series.

2017.04.08

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

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

Poster for Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril

1972, Action

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

2017.04.08

Poster for Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades

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

Poster for Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx

1972, Drama, Action

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

2017.04.08

Poster for Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance

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

Poster for Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell

4.0

2017, Drama, 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

Poster for Fright Night

Fright Night

8.0

1985, Horror

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

2017.03.31

Poster for Killer Constable

Killer Constable

1980, Adventure, Action

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

2017.03.28

Poster for Hell Drivers

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

Poster for Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper

2016, Drama, Suspense, Mystery

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

The Adventures of Robin Hood

1938, Adventure, Action, Love

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

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