Watch The Three Musketeers with the sound off and it likely plays as a far more prestigious production than the bawdy romp its dialogue reduces it to. David Watkin's cinematography may not capture the action well, but his establishing shots are a thing of beauty. Review

Missing might be the first of these movies in which the characters are more interesting than the mystery. That's credit to the performances of Reid and de Almeida, who make for a sympathetic pair of unlikely damaged detectives. Review

The young protagonists of How to Blow Up a Pipeline may be misguided and motivated by the wrong reasons, but it's nice to see a heist whose proposed reward is something other than personal financial gain. Review

What keeps us onboard throughout A Thousand and One's narrative is the evolution of Ines, portrayed in subtly brilliant fashion by Taylor. Review

Some of the bloodsucking gags are as stale as those found in the terminally unfunny George Hamilton vehicle Love at First Bite. Review

As an overview of a sub-genre, We Kill For Love isn't quite in the same league as the Ozploitation doc Not Quite Hollywood or the recent folk-horror deep dive Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched. But it's not far off, and you may well find yourself jotting down the titles of movies that you glanced past in video stores 25 years ago. Review

It's a refreshing approach that saves what is otherwise a standard exorcism thriller from fading into the overcrowded market. It's pure trash, but it's happy to be trash, and crucially, it seems to enjoy its trashiness. Review

Godland doesn't have much original to say, and what it does say is often hard to swallow, particularly some final reel escalations. It can however claim to be one of the most visually impressive movies you'll see all year. Review

Like Skinamarink, it's been praised as an intellectual exercise, a thinking man's found footage horror. I guess I'm just not a thinking man then, as I found it an ordeal. Review

Affleck's film is a fun time at the movies, but if you're won over by its free advertising and find yourself tempted to buy a pair of Nike shoes – just don't. Review

There's plenty to keep you amused here, and that wine press segment ranks among Dupieux' finest work. If the French filmmaker's work generally leaves you bemused, you should probably sit this one out. If you're completely unfamiliar with Dupieux, this might be a good place to start, as it will clue you into his off-kilter sensibilities without testing your patience too heavily. Review

Though we know Yohan and Marceau will ultimately fail in their quest to find Clara's killer, we're sucked into their investigation to such a degree that we forget this detail. Review

Along with some striking set-pieces like the opening foot chase and the shanty town raid, the film features scenes of men bickering and debating in stuffy rooms that are equally thrilling. Review

The Chilean landscape is beautifully photographed and certainly makes the point that it deserves preserving, but I just wish the film found a more involving way of getting that notion across. Review

In terms of wit and inventiveness, Dungeons and Dragons: Honour Among Thieves has a lot going for it. Sadly, there's one issue it can't surmount, and that's modern Hollywood's insistence on bloated running times. Review

Black Metal acolytes may appreciate a movie portraying them in a positive light, but with its lack of thrills, Leave is more Easy Listening than Hard Rock. Review

There are no real laugh out loud moments however, and we're left to wonder how much more successful the comedy side of Appendage might have been had Zlokovic retained the services of Sennott and Roberts. Review
