One of those classic, iconic movies which begs to be watched again and again, if only to savour its memorable highlights and ponder...

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Science fiction

Such a generously entertaining popcorn-munching rollercoaster ride that the shortcomings aren’t all that noticeable. Get ready to play!

Poster for Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs

8.0

2018, Adventure, Animation, Drama, Comedy

It’s another piece of cinematic joyousness from a director who has always stamped his own personality on his work - and it’s a great personality.

Poster for RoboCop

RoboCop

1987, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

One of the defining films of its decade.

2018.03.24

Poster for Breathless

Breathless

7.0

1983, Drama, Action, Suspense, Love

A relic from the 1980s which could very easily be either loved or hated - but never accused of being boring.

2018.03.22

1972, Fantasy, Drama, Horror

It’s one of those weird gems littered with subtle clues that seems to beg repeated viewings.

The Return of Ringo

9.0

1965, Drama, Action, Western, Love

Ranks amongst the top tier of the spaghetti western subgenre...

2018.03.20

Poster for A Pistol for Ringo

A Pistol for Ringo

7.0

1965, Western

Has a sense of pure, unadulterated fun which makes it easier to watch for an hour and a half when you are in a glum mood.

Poster for The Passenger

The Passenger

1975, Drama, Suspense

An absolute must for any serious film fan.

2018.03.17

Poster for The Barefoot Contessa

The Barefoot Contessa

6.0

1954, Drama

Despite the sheer beauty of both actress Ava Gardner and the cinematography of Jack Cardiff, the storytelling lacks the necessary emotional impact.

Poster for Gumshoe

Gumshoe

8.0

1971, Drama, Comedy, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

A highly enjoyable British noir homage which deserves to be better known than it is.

2018.03.12

Red Sparrow

4.0

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Mystery

Neither particularly enjoyable nor particularly enlightening...

2018.03.09

Poster for Flowers in the Attic

Flowers in the Attic

6.0

1987, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

A film with lots of issues but it’s still diverting as a piece of 1980s nostalgia.

2018.03.08

Poster for Night of the Living Dead

Night of the Living Dead

8.0

1968, Horror

Still holds up well in its own right and remains a vital part of the history of horror cinema.

2018.03.05

Poster for The Full Treatment

The Full Treatment

5.0

1960, Drama, Mystery

A rather dated but not entirely unentertaining Freudian psychological melodrama.

Poster for The Snorkel

The Snorkel

8.0

1958, Suspense

While Guy Green isn’t (at the risk of stating the obvious) in the same league as Hitchcock there are some highly effective moments of suspense here.

2018.03.02

Poster for I, Tonya

I, Tonya

7.0

2017, Drama

Robbie more than carries the film on her shoulders, ably abetted by both Stan and Janney.
