A wonderful film...

Poster for Blood Feast

Blood Feast

6.0

1963, Horror

A crude and sloppy film but that doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining.

Poster for Blue Velvet

Blue Velvet

9.0

1986, Drama, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

Something very distinctively Lynch and frankly confounding until you let it sink in and connect on an entirely subconscious plane.

Poster for The Room

The Room

0.0

2003, Drama, Love

Bow down in awe and reverence at its pure unfettered awfulness!

Poster for The Pumpkin Eater

The Pumpkin Eater

10

1964, Drama

A fine release of a criminally overlooked film...

2017.12.04

Poster for Amour fou

Amour fou

8.0

2014, Drama, Comedy, Love

A thoughtfully-crafted and subtly humorous film which is likely to cause a divergent range of opinions amongst viewers.

2017.12.02

Poster for Paris pieds nus

Paris pieds nus

7.0

2017, Comedy

As lovingly crafted as it is, your own level of enjoyment largely depends on how much you enjoy burlesque slapstick comedy acts.

2017.12.01

Poster for The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers

9.0

1980, Music, Action, Comedy, Crime

The film is just a whole lot of fun, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Poster for Enter the Ninja

Enter the Ninja

5.0

1981, Drama, Action, Crime

Nowadays it is clear that it’s a pretty ropey affair, albeit moderately entertaining in its own cheesy way.

2017.11.30

Poster for The Premonition

The Premonition

7.0

1976, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

Well worth a look for those who like their horror restrained, thoughtful and relatively low on gore.

2017.11.28

Poster for The Witch Who Came from the Sea

The Witch Who Came from the Sea

8.0

1976, Drama, Horror

An underrated and genuinely disturbing psychological horror.

2017.11.27

Poster for Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood

Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood

5.0

1973, Horror

To my mind it is more of an interesting but messy experiment than an unsung classic.

2017.11.26

Poster for Frank

Frank

8.0

2014, Drama, Comedy, Mystery

Blackly funny, bittersweet and strange.

2017.11.24

Poster for The Conversation

The Conversation

10

1974, Drama, Crime, Mystery

An exceptionally well-constructed film.

2017.11.24

Poster for Beverly Hills Cop

Beverly Hills Cop

8.0

1984, Action, Comedy, Crime

There’s just enough grit and edge here to keep the proceedings from feeling too lightweight, but not to the extent of overwhelming the humour.

2017.11.23

Poster for Bullitt

Bullitt

7.0

1968, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

Still a pretty good watch despite the issues which come to light when seen in retrospect.

2017.11.23

Poster for The 'Burbs

The 'Burbs

7.0

1989, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

The comic situations, veering from sly satire of middle class American concerns to broad Chevy Chase-style slapstick, are generally pretty funny.

2017.11.23

Poster for Sunday Bloody Sunday

Sunday Bloody Sunday

8.0

1971, Drama

A fine and imaginatively made movie, if a little overlong.

2017.11.23

Poster for Eyes of Laura Mars

Eyes of Laura Mars

4.0

1978, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Kershner only grapples fleetingly with either idea and largely settles for a pedestrian, talk-heavy mystery.

2017.11.22

Poster for Escape from New York

Escape from New York

8.0

1981, Action, Science fiction

Stands up as an amusing and stylish effort...

2017.11.22

Poster for First Men in the Moon

First Men in the Moon

6.0

1964, Adventure, Science fiction

Has its moments but ultimately feels a bit blah.

2017.11.21

Poster for Jason and the Argonauts

Jason and the Argonauts

10

1963, Adventure, Fantasy, Science fiction

An archetypal Bank Holiday favourite which holds up remarkably well even after all of these years.

2017.11.21

Poster for Mysterious Island

Mysterious Island

7.0

1961, Adventure, Fantasy, Science fiction

Decent, colourful science-fantasy fun.

2017.11.21

Poster for Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

5.0

2017, Drama, Love

It’s a real shame that such a great Annette Bening performance has ended up in such a dispiriting film...
