Another powerful and imaginative piece of New Zealand cinema...

2018.06.01

Poster for On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach

7.0

2018, Drama

While On Chesil Beach amounts to a powerful tale of doomed love, it’s not without its faults.

Poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

5.0

2018, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Isn’t outright bad, it’s a rather lacklustre and uninspiring action flick which happens to be tied in with a phenomenally popular space opera franchise.

1990, Drama, Crime

An outstanding film which has never quite been given the full credit that it is due.

Poster for The Old Dark House

The Old Dark House

A truly underrated horror classic.

2018.05.23

Poster for Space Truckers

Space Truckers

4.0

1996, Adventure, Comedy, Suspense, Science fiction

A lame space comedy that’s paradoxically worth watching once for the sheer imagination on display and for Dennis Hopper’s fine performance.

2018.05.17

Poster for Breakheart Pass

Breakheart Pass

7.0

1975, Western, Suspense, Mystery

A decent enough 1970s action-adventure.

2018.05.14

Poster for Best F(r)iends: Volume One

Best F(r)iends: Volume One

6.0

2018, Drama, Comedy, Suspense

It’s a true Frankenstein’s monster which doesn’t quite know how to place itself within this whole Sestero-Wiseau continuum.

2018.05.12

Poster for Rawhead Rex

Rawhead Rex

5.0

1986, Horror

Both something of a wasted opportunity and an undeniable guilty pleasure.

2018.05.07

Poster for Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

6.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction

Ultimately offered both too much and yet, paradoxically, too little.

Poster for Irma Vep

1996, Drama, Comedy

One of those wonderful and original movies that’s hard to pigeonhole but somehow occupies a unique place in the memory.

Poster for Marty

Marty

8.0

1955, Drama, Love

Well-acted, well put together and undeniably heartfelt.

2018.04.28

Poster for Have a Nice Day

Have a Nice Day

6.0

2018, Animation, Crime

Carves out a distinctive stylistic niche that’s hard to dismiss.

2018.04.27

Poster for Super Inframan

Super Inframan

6.0

1975, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Isn’t exactly a great film. However, it is a diverting way to kill an hour and a half in the cheesiest possible way.

2018.04.26

Poster for The Breadwinner

The Breadwinner

10

2017, Animation, Drama, War

A beautiful hymn to a child’s ingenuity and imagination, even amongst the world’s most brutally adverse circumstances.

2018.04.24

Poster for The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds

10

1972, Drama

A great, if rather sad, movie that comes close to being an American equivalent of the British “social realism” movement.

2018.04.22

Poster for Little Murders

Little Murders

7.0

1971, Comedy

The blackly comic mania still hits the funny bone more often than not.

2018.04.21

Poster for The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

7.0

1967, Drama, History, Crime

An enjoyable slice of bloody gangster warfare backed up by a decent cast.

2018.04.20

Poster for Suddenly, Last Summer

Suddenly, Last Summer

8.0

1959, Drama, Suspense, Mystery

A beautiful and lyrical film which is as disturbing when watched nowadays as it undoubtedly was back then.

Makes for an interesting viewing when placed in context.

2018.04.12

Poster for Harper

Harper

8.0

1966, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

Effortlessly enjoyable and it’s easy to see why it was so popular with audiences at the time.

2018.04.11

Poster for Ghost Stories

Ghost Stories

6.0

2018, Drama, Horror

It’s decent enough that it can’t be wholeheartedly dismissed, yet it is never quite satisfying enough to reach true greatness.

2018.04.10

Poster for Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs

8.0

1977, Drama, Action, Suspense

A harrowing look at how countries and their inhabitants can degenerate into extremist positions...

2018.04.09

Poster for A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

9.0

2018, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

An impressively original piece of nerve-shredding cinema.
