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.

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.

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, 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 Ironmaster

Ironmaster

2.0

1983, Adventure, Action

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

2017.05.04

Poster for Hard Times

Hard Times

7.0

1975, Drama

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

2017.05.03

Poster for The Lady from Shanghai

The Lady from Shanghai

9.0

1947, Drama, Crime, Mystery

An outstanding, hugely entertaining thriller.

2017.05.02

Poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

6.0

2017, Adventure, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

Feels like a huge, unsifted creative brainstorming session amongst Marvel’s finest talents...

2017.04.30

Poster for Caltiki, the Immortal Monster

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster

6.0

1959, Adventure, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

An entertaining low budget film despite its problems.

2017.04.20

Poster for The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden

10

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.

2017.04.18

Poster for Fat City

Fat City

8.0

1972, Drama

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

2017.04.16

Poster for 2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York

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.

2017.04.13

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.

2017.04.11

Poster for Raw

Raw

10

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.
