Poster for Winterlong

Winterlong

7.0

2018

While there are a few shortcomings in terms of overall storyline construction, the quality of the performances and central character development do much to offset this.

Solis

8.0

2018, Science fiction

The script and performances deepen and broaden the story considerably, lifting what could have been a simple “in the moment” adventure thriller to another level.

Poster for The Devil Outside

The Devil Outside

5.0

2018, Drama

The dramatic conflict here is so unsubtle and lacking in nuance that it ends up being more hilarious than believable.

2018.06.30

A Punk Daydream

8.0

Drama, Documentary

There are a number of particularly startling and moving moments here.

Poster for Anna and the Apocalypse

Anna and the Apocalypse

6.0

2018, Music, Horror, Comedy

Ultimately isn’t quite the musical answer to Shaun of the Dead that it should have been. Nonetheless, it’s worth seeing for sheer novelty value alone.

Poster for The Eyes of Orson Welles

The Eyes of Orson Welles

8.0

2018, Documentary

Both authoritative and softly-spoken in that unmistakable Mark Cousins style.

Poster for Swinging Safari

Swinging Safari

7.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

If you are fully prepared to take jokes which possess genuine wit while traipsing gleefully into decidedly taboo territory then this will be right up your alley.

Poster for Obey

Obey

8.0

2018, Drama

The raw energy and anger on display will leave the viewer walking out of the cinema suitably shaken by the experience.

Poster for The Parting Glass

The Parting Glass

8.0

2018

The characters here come across like how human beings really should.

2018.06.25

Poster for Terminal

Terminal

4.0

2018, Drama, Suspense, Crime

A film which seems to lack any consistent tone or purpose.

2018.06.24

Poster for Lucid

Lucid

2.0

2018, Suspense

One of the most uninteresting films that could conceivably be made about such an endlessly enthralling subject.

Poster for George Michael: Freedom

George Michael: Freedom

7.0

2017, Documentary

This sense of vulnerability heard peering out from behind that giant rock star ego successfully creates a deeper connection with the viewer...

2018.06.23

Poster for Papillon

Papillon

7.0

2018, Adventure, Drama

Viewers who a fully prepared to wallow in the gritty, gruelling and gory will be in their element here.

Poster for Calibre

Calibre

8.0

2018, Suspense

Director Palmer maintains an impressively solid grasp on the suspense throughout a relatively long 110-minute runtime.

Poster for Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2

10

2018, Adventure, Animation, Action, Comedy

Funny, poignant, inventive, exciting and perfectly paced.

2018.06.22

Old Boys

6.0

2018, Comedy

While the comedy is often misjudged, Toby MacDonald still manages to convey the romantic tension of the original story pretty well.

2018.06.21

Poster for Blood Fest

Blood Fest

7.0

2018, Horror, Comedy

Won’t go down in history as any kind of seminal horror masterpiece but, nonetheless, it’s undeniably entertaining.

2018.06.20

Poster for Puzzle

Puzzle

10

2018, Drama

These ordinary people feel real and complex. We spend time sharing their joy, humour and sadness but Marc Turtletaub never handles it in a forced or overdone manner.

2018.06.18

Poster for Gli invasori

Gli invasori

8.0

1961, Adventure, Action

A quintessential and highly entertaining example of how sheer in-camera ingenuity and imagination can triumph over the kind of financial constraints...

2018.06.17

Poster for The Addiction

The Addiction

6.0

1995, Drama, Horror

Stamps its own monochromatic imprint on the vampire movie landscape.

2018.06.17

Poster for Hereditary

Hereditary

8.0

2018, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Another fine example of the recent horror renaissance.

One of the great Hong Kong period martial arts flicks.

1985, Drama, Suspense, Science fiction

It all concludes with a suspenseful, explosive climax and a hauntingly strange, poetic final image.

1982, Horror, Science fiction

One of those movies which is best watched late at night, preferably after some form of intoxication.
