Poster for The Anderson Tapes

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.

Poster for Bunny Lake Is Missing

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.

Poster for Logan

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.

Poster for Cul-de-sac

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

Poster for Free Fire

Free Fire

6.0

2017, Action, Comedy, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

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

Poster for Dead Heat

Dead Heat

6.0

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

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

Poster for Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

1975, Adventure, Fantasy, Comedy

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

2017.02.26

Poster for Charade

Charade

8.0

1963, Comedy, Suspense, Mystery, Love

A stylishly enjoyable espionage escapade.

2017.02.25

Poster for Heat

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

Poster for After Hours

After Hours

8.0

1985, Drama, Comedy, Suspense

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

2017.02.20

The Final Reel

10

Documentary

This is a highly informative and enchantingly nostalgic documentary...

2017.02.19

Poster for John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick: Chapter 2

7.0

2017, Action, Suspense, Crime

Despite these reservations it’s an undeniably superior piece of action entertainment.

2017.02.18

Poster for Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker

3.0

2017, Drama, Love

It’s pap, but more to the point it’s dull pap.

2017.02.17

Poster for Raising Cain

Raising Cain

7.0

1992, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Crime

An enjoyable part of Brian De Palma’s work despite its idiosyncrasies...

2017.02.15

Poster for The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie

8.0

2017, Fantasy, Animation, Action, Comedy

Lots of fun and the message that “it’s better to have friends than be alone” is warm-hearted and non-patronising.

2017.02.13

Poster for Fences

Fences

5.0

2016, Drama

A long and miserable film that only occasionally comes to life.

2017.02.13

Poster for Rumble Fish

Rumble Fish

1983, Drama, Action, Crime

A beautiful and lyrical film...

2017.02.10

Poster for The New Centurions

The New Centurions

7.0

1972, Drama, Action, Crime

A well-made, downbeat 1970s police drama...

2017.02.08

Poster for La morte negli occhi del gatto

La morte negli occhi del gatto

4.0

1973, Horror, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

A rather curious and minor Euro-horror that’s only worth seeking out for completists.

2017.02.07

Poster for Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

5.0

1974, Drama, Action, Crime

It’s more of an interesting failure than it is the masterpiece some have proclaimed it to be.

2017.02.05

Poster for Toni Erdmann

Toni Erdmann

9.5

2016, Drama, Comedy

Such a natural, unforced dynamic...

2017.02.04

Best watched with a few beers on hand.

Happy Birthday to Me

6.0

1981, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

If you’re not a fan of early 80s slashers however it probably won’t be the film to convert you.
