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

Blood Fest

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

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.

Erik the Conqueror

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

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

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

Stanley Kramer's rather obvious (albeit well-meaning) message doesn’t overwhelm the film’s considerable entertainment value.

Another fine piece of classic-era cinema...

A film with one or two nice ideas but it comes up short in terms of execution.

Poster for Inherit the Wind

Inherit the Wind

An utterly gripping look at how religious dogma and populist politics can threaten to tip the scales of justice away from reason and open-minded inquiry.

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

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

Solo: A Star Wars Story

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.

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

A truly underrated horror classic.

Poster for Space Truckers

Space Truckers

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

Poster for Breakheart Pass

Breakheart Pass

A decent enough 1970s action-adventure.

Best F(r)iends: Volume One

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