A Writer's Odyssey

349
A Writer's Odyssey review

"It's grand and epic, technically extremely proficient, it delivers fresh and exciting fantasy realms to explore and the pacing is excellent. A landmark for fantasy cinema"

As the Gods Will

348
As the Gods Will review

"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."

The Book of Eli

347
The Book of Eli review

"That said, The Book Of Eli is definitely one of the best things I've seen coming from Hollywood this year. It's all style and atmosphere, wonderfully executed and well acted."

Innocence

346
Innocence review

"That said, Innocence is not a very easy film to recommend. It's quite stoic, mysterious and enigmatic, both plotwise and stylistically."

Love/Exposure

345
Love/Exposure review

"Don't let that hold you back though. Love Exposure is a great experience, offering lots of weirdness, fun and shock while never boring its audience."

Daughters

344
Daughters review

"Daughters breathes new life into a genre that's become pretty stale of late, by updating its stylistic vocabulary while making sure all its dramatic beats hit the mark."

Wonogawa

343
Wonogawa review

"A film with superb designs, overflowing with creative ideas, more than enough intriguing lore to fill at least three films and executed in a way that hides most of its financial struggles."

Wake Up and Die

342
Wake Up and Die review

"Instead the film leans heavily on the learning process, which goes well beyond the simple A/B testing you'd expect from a concept like this."

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

341
An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn review

"You could read a million reviews and still not know what to expect. There's also no telling whether you'll end up liking it, but I'm pretty confident that this will be a unique experience"

A.I. Rising

340
A.I. Rising review

"Seasoned genre fans are sure to appreciate the industrial atmosphere, the in-depth exploration of futuristic themes and the mix of strong genre elements with a layer of social commentary."

Blood of Rebirth

339
Blood of Rebirth review

"I still need to see Hanging Garden and Unchain, that said I believe Blood of Rebirth belongs to Toyoda's best output to date and could be the start of something beautiful."

Shadow

338
Shadow review

"Shadow's eye-popping visuals amaze from start to finish and with all the other elements adequately covered there are plenty of stand-out scenes that may become pillars of the genre."

Mozu

337
Mozu review

"If you like 120 minutes of stylish showdowns, explosive action scenes and over-the-top characters, Eiichiro Hasumi delivers one of the best films in ages."

Guns Akimbo

336
Guns Akimbo review

"Guns Akimbo is extremely energetic, in your face and funny, packing a couple of neat surprises, a splendid central duo and enough action to fill at least two 90-minute films."

Goemon

335
Goemon review

"Kiriya serves a roller-coaster ride, but one that makes sure that the better moments can be relived late at night while lying in bed with your eyes closed."

Gantz:O

334
Gantz:O review

"Gantz:O is brutal, action-packed and a bit mad in the head."

Young Dudes

333
Young Dudes review

"It's a shame it takes a little too long before the film gets really going, because Chen is obviously a very talented director."

Slumdog Millionaire

332
Slumdog Millionaire review

"Slumdog Millionaire works on all levels. While it starts off as a light drama it ends as a pure feel-good film and has no trouble making it work."

The Girl Who Leapt through Time

331
The Girl Who Leapt through Time review

" If you're in the mood for action or lots of plot twists, there's little here for you. But if you're up for a little variation on the Ghibli magic, this film might be a pretty good bet to make."

Fireball

330
Fireball review

"The raw and unrelenting bouts are really spectacular and make this one of the best action flicks I've seen in a long time."

Ten Nights of Dreams

329
Ten Nights of Dreams review

"A wonderful collection of shorts, visually pleasing, fun to watch and from time to time refreshingly weird."

Raging Phoenix

328
Raging Phoenix review

"Raging Phoenix is another very solid entry in the Thai martial arts selection."

This World of Ours

327
This World of Ours review

"Nakajima's first film is not for everybody. It combines the rawness of films like Pornostar and even Irréversible with the poetry and drama of films like Tokyo.Sora."

I Stand Alone

326
I Stand Alone review

"So yeah, Noé could've opted to make a more pensive, explanatory version of the story, but that's not really his style."
