Poster for The Predator

The Predator


Quite frankly, the most disappointing film which I’ve seen so far this year.

Poster for The Producers

The Producers


Even the otherwise grating Franz Liebkind character has his moment in the spotlight. It’s a pity that getting to this part of the film is a bit of a slog.

Poster for Lucky



While Stanton’s the star here, the supporting cast also contribute their share of memorable moments to the film.

Poster for The Pyjama Girl Case

The Pyjama Girl Case


This Italian genre oddity won’t appeal to everyone. However, it’s undeniable that we get yet another superb-looking print from Arrow...

Poster for Heathers



A stone cold 1980s classic.

Poster for The Odessa File

The Odessa File


On the sluggish side but still worth seeing mainly for the story, Voight’s performance and some tense moments of action.

Poster for Cold War

Cold War


It’s a truly emotive and passionate work - not in the sense of being manipulative but in the sense of a pure poetry and artistry which has gone into every single moment of screen time.

Poster for Death Line

Death Line


May not be a perfect horror film but it is certainly a cut above average. It’s gruesome, atmospheric and intelligent all at once.

Poster for Ministry of Fear

Ministry of Fear


Solidly recommended to both Fritz Lang and film noir fans.

Poster for BlacKkKlansman



It tells a truly eye-opening and socially important tale in a manner which entertains and disturbs in equal measure.

Poster for Police Story 2

Police Story 2


Has a bit more depth and is better constructed than the first film but, on the downside, doesn’t offer quite as much in the way of pure, unfettered fun.

Poster for Police Story

Police Story


A textbook example of the reasons why Jackie Chan became firmly established as one of Asia’s biggest movie stars during the 1980s.

Poster for Apprentice to Murder

Apprentice to Murder


Worth a look if you want something vaguely horror-esque but different from the usual.

Poster for Witness for the Prosecution

Witness for the Prosecution


As courtroom dramas go, this one definitely stands right up there with the best. It’s grand and superbly acted entertainment.

Poster for The Changeling

The Changeling


An underrated gem with great camerawork, effective spine chills and fine acting.

Poster for Tideland



While it’s extremely difficult to rate objectively, the critical slating which it received is understandable.

Poster for Cannibal Ferox

Cannibal Ferox


A pretty weak excuse for a film and is only worthy of any note for its inordinate level of gore.

Poster for Flesh + Blood

Flesh + Blood


An intelligent and brutal entry in Paul Verhoeven’s filmography...

Poster for Birdman of Alcatraz

Birdman of Alcatraz


Burt Lancaster turns in one of his best performances of his career...

Poster for Street Mobster

Street Mobster


This violent and interestingly deglamourised gangster flick is marred by its rather unlikeable and opaque central character, not to mention its ugly sexual politics.

Poster for The Terror of the Tongs

The Terror of the Tongs


A dubious and largely racist historical potboiler.

Poster for Yesterday's Enemy

Yesterday's Enemy


A fierce and intelligent depiction of the ugly cruelties of war.

Poster for The Stranglers of Bombay

The Stranglers of Bombay


Unfortunately, it’s significantly less interesting than Blood Island.

Poster for The Camp on Blood Island

The Camp on Blood Island


A gripping and grueling wartime drama graced with a suitably stoic, yet tangibly human lead performance by André Morell.
