Poster for The Beguiled

The Beguiled

8.0

2017, Drama, Western

If you can accept the slow-as-molasses pace early on, The Beguiled is a truly beguiling piece of artistically-crafted entertainment.

Poster for The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

7.0

1953, Fantasy, Music

The film’s not entirely successful but it’s so wildly unusual that it has to be experienced.

Poster for Dunkirk

Dunkirk

8.0

2017, Drama, Action, History, Suspense, War

The pacing is faultless, the evocation of the horror of war is truly disturbing despite the lack of overt Saving Private Ryan-style gore.

Poster for Stormy Monday

Stormy Monday

2.0

1988, Drama, Crime, Love

I couldn’t stand the film and find it hard to recommend unless you’re a completist.

1983, Drama, History

The performances are outstanding all round.

1973, Fantasy, Animation, Drama, Music

A surreal one-of-a-kind masterpiece...

2017.07.20

Poster for Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

5.0

1977, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction

The dullest and tattiest of the three movies, despite having been made on a considerably higher budget.

2017.07.19

Poster for The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

8.0

1973, Adventure, Fantasy, Drama, Action

This one improves on The 7th Voyage in some aspects, but is slightly weaker in others.

Poster for The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

8.0

1958, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

The acting is somewhat hammy, but the plot is well-constructed and the characters’ actions have believable consequences.

2017.07.19

Poster for The Amityville Horror

The Amityville Horror

4.0

1979, Drama, Horror, Suspense

The film really doesn’t stand up unless discussed in context with the fascinating surrounding back story.

2017.07.11

Poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming

8.0

2017, Adventure, Drama, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

The story is a little too conservative and predictable. Nonetheless, the whole film’s so much fun that it’s not a big problem.

2017.07.09

Poster for Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon

8.0

1980, Science fiction

A Rocky Horror-style audience-led musical indulgence...

2017.07.07

Poster for Kedi

Kedi

8.0

2017, Documentary

An important piece of food for thought...

2017.07.05

Poster for My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel

7.0

2017, Drama, Love

Just classily-mounted pulp. Still, sometimes that’s all you need in life.

2017.07.05

Poster for Baby Driver

Baby Driver

9.0

2017, Action, Crime

There’s a real sense of heart and characters we can root for in all of this...

2017.07.04

Poster for Wakefield

Wakefield

4.0

2016, Drama

Unfortunately, the concept doesn’t really successfully sustain itself...

2017.07.02

Poster for On the Sly: In Search of the Family Stone

On the Sly: In Search of the Family Stone

8.0

2017, Documentary

An ending that’s touchingly surprising, especially considering everything that’s happened up until then.

2017.07.02

Poster for Strange Weather

Strange Weather

7.0

2016, Drama

A fine small movie, and one that takes a truly feminine route of emotional catharsis over a past wrong...

2017.07.01

Poster for My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea

My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea

8.0

2017, Animation, Drama, Comedy

Provides a unique feel that makes it something rather more than a mere quirky diversion.

2017.06.29

Poster for Bad Day for the Cut

Bad Day for the Cut

6.0

2017, Suspense

Isn’t anything particularly innovative, but it is still enjoyable in its own dark way.

2017.06.29

Poster for Okja

Okja

10

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Drama, Science fiction

Has such an endlessly creative sense of fun that it generates a tidal wave of goodwill...

2017.06.29

Poster for Animals

Animals

7.0

2017, Drama, Suspense, Mystery

Effortlessly enjoyable if you just go with its distinctive flow and let its dream journal symbolism bury itself into your subconsciousness.

2017.06.28

Poster for Vampire Cleanup Department

Vampire Cleanup Department

5.0

2017, Horror, Action, Comedy

Still fun, albeit more as a semi-romantic comedy vampire homage than a kind of grand martial arts adventure...
