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.

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.

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.

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.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


The best action movie to come out in a long time. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Poster for King of Hearts

King of Hearts


Possesses enough surreal magic to make it well worth a look for any movie buff.

Poster for The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey

The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey


A rich and imaginative work which will delight some but leave others cold.

Poster for Alice Sweet Alice

Alice Sweet Alice


Alice Sweet Alice, despite its flaws, is an intriguing tale of terror for him to leave us alone in the dark with.

Poster for Racer and the Jailbird

Racer and the Jailbird


Just enjoy the acting, the steamy sex scenes, the burst of fast-paced action...

Poster for Allure



While Allure is admirable in its performances and sense of honesty, a few technical and storytelling aspects fail to convince.

Poster for La coda dello scorpione

La coda dello scorpione


Might baffle the hell out of you, it succeeds in being enjoyably glossy Euro-trash.

Poster for The China Syndrome

The China Syndrome


Isn’t quite the masterpiece that its reputation suggests, it still entertains and provokes in equal measure.

Poster for Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters


It is idiosyncratic, it features some individual works which leave more impression than others, but we are still blown away at the end regardless.

Poster for Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl

Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl


The focus on the finer details of the relationship creates a gradual sense of investment which makes the climactic argument all the more shattering.
