Poster for Astronaut



It’s enjoyable enough and the supporting cast is worthy, especially Barney as Dreyfuss’s character’s devoted grandson and Art Hindle as his cranky buddy from the old folk’s home.

Poster for 성난황소



Unstoppable passes the time ok but, as South Korean thrillers go, it’s a long way off the likes of Oldboy, I Saw the Devil or The Villainess.

Poster for Memory: The Origins of Alien

Memory: The Origins of Alien


If you liked the film Alien, then this doc is an easy must-see.

Poster for The Furies

The Furies


The Furies is a bona fide mash-up of horror influences.

Poster for Emma Peeters

Emma Peeters


While the film’s outcome isn’t all that surprising if you’ve seen a number of others in the suicide comedy sub-genre, everything up to then has been infused with enough charm to make the journey there feel fresh.

Poster for Yesterday



Yesterday has a uniquely charming premise which it capitalises on rather well - at least initially.

Poster for Scum



Scum is one of the most brutal British films ever made and is well worth the effort of psyching yourself up to watch.

Poster for The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne

The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne


The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne is a truly bleak and haunting experience which is well worth a look, especially for Maggie Smith’s performance.

Poster for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum


You know the drill. Just go to the cinema, buy a bucket of popcorn and relish it for the heady action rush that it is.

Poster for Def-Con 4

Def-Con 4


After a promising early stretch, Def-Con 4 plummets to Earth in more ways than one.

Poster for Under Fire

Under Fire


Under Fire is a good, gripping movie marred slightly by its love triangle aspect.

Poster for The Andromeda Strain

The Andromeda Strain


The Andromeda Strain is a haunting and slow-burning gem...

Poster for Bellman and True

Bellman and True


Bellman & True is an underrated gem of a film. It’s truly exciting stuff but never loses sight of its human dimension.

Poster for Who?



Who? is a somewhat interesting curiosity marred by serious shortcomings in terms of direction and production values.

Poster for The Woman in the Window

The Woman in the Window


However you feel about The Woman in the Window’s ending, it’s hard to deny that it’s a landmark in film noir history.

Poster for No Orchids for Miss Blandish

No Orchids for Miss Blandish


No Orchids for Miss Blandish is a dull and badly-executed pastiche despite being fairly decent from a visual standpoint.

Poster for Track 29

Track 29


If there’s anything for certain, however, one can confidently assert that it’s positively dripping in brightly-coloured 1980s visual flair and extremely carefully constructed out of its own rich slew of metaphors.

Poster for The Night of the Generals

The Night of the Generals


The Night of the Generals is no masterpiece but it is better than its reputation suggests.

Poster for Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame


Avengers: Endgame is a triumph for the series and recommended viewing even for those (like myself) who are typically lukewarm about all things MCU.

Poster for November



November isn’t for everyone and isn’t without its flaws but it’s still a rare experience. If you enjoy your fantasy dark and discomfiting then it’s definitely one to seek out.

Poster for The Reckless Moment

The Reckless Moment


The end result is one of the most gripping and memorable films of the era. A must-see.

Poster for Lilith



Lilith is a fascinating watch but also inherently depressing and arguably a trifle pretentious.

Poster for The Snake Pit

The Snake Pit


The psychology is also decidedly dated and the Hollywood-style happy ending feels forced. Nonetheless, the overall effect is compelling in a uniquely discomfiting way.

Poster for Dragonwyck



Dragonwyck is a dark, tragic gothic gem...
