"PTU is first class film making. Lam en Yam are good actors and know how to play their parts. The soundtrack is solid and the film is visually impressive."
"There is some greatness in The Neon Demon, but quite often it is bogged down by too much narrative, somewhat fickle acting performances and (unfair?) comparisons with better films."
"It's comforting to know Shunji Iwai is back and hasn't lost his touch."
"Even so, Daemonium: Underground Soldier is probably a little too bonkers to appeal to mainstream fans."
"Spriggan is a pretty fun and over the top anime feature, but only for those who can handle the silliness."
"A film that aptly blends the more serious elements of Japanese drama with some fantastical touches and a slightly more accessible front, without going full commercial tearjerker."
"One Night Only is raw and undiluted cinematic fun, boasting superb visuals, a great soundtrack and a more than solid cast."
"The Tale of Princess Kaguya is still a marvel to behold and definitely worth your time, but it's also a film that feels like a natural end to Takahata's career."
"As the Gods Will is a typical Miike flick in the sense that it's pretty much pointless to compare it to other films out there."
"130 minutes is quite long for an anime feature, but Yamada need every minute of that to tell this story."
"The Chrysalis is pure genre cinema. It operates on textbook mechanics and follows an all too familiar path, but the execution is flawless while Chu-ji Qiu demonstrates his skills as a director."
"Black Swan sees Aronofsky back in good shape. Opinions differ, but I'm glad he left the gritty dramas alone and went back to more familiar territory."
"Lips and Soul is pretty handicapped to reach a big audience. Poor availability and a complete lack of international buzz mean it will have to rely on the odd film festival to make a name for itself."
"Wool 100% is a film that you just have to see. You might not like it, but at the least it's an experience worth having."
"There's a whole lot of U Turn in here, a bit of Coens maybe, a dash of Western flavour and topped off with plenty of Chinese touches."
"Zebraman 2 is not all that easy to recommend. Depending on what you expect or demand from a sequel, it's either a missed opportunity or a definite improvement over the first film."
"Fung goes to great lengths to reinvent the 90s martial arts cinema and hits the sweet spot."
"The result is a strong, remarkable drama with no weak points and a few stand-out scenes that linger long after the end credits have faded from the screen."
"Eubank is clearly a talented director with a vision. He might not transcend the genre film segment to become a big blockbuster director, but that's probably just for the better."
"Don't go in expecting a true slasher flick, expect a genre flick adapted by the mind of Ho-Cheung Pang."
