"Save some out of place effects, House of Flying Daggers hasn't lost much of its original appeal."

Frankenweenie

Frankenweenie review

"Everything about Frankenweenie shows that this a film made with lots of passion and dedication."

Like Father, Like Son

523
Like Father, Like Son review

"The characters are given ample room to thrive, the underlying drama is solid and the film features a stellar concept that intrigues even beyond the scope of its running time."

Kite

522
Kite review

"If you don't like the setting and you aren't charmed by the film's stylish exterior, the harsh action and crude characters probably won't cut it for you."

Reign of Assassins

521
Reign of Assassins review

"If you're looking for a quality martial arts epic, look no further because this film has everything to quench your thirst."

The Superdeep

520
The Superdeep review

"The thrill of the adventure is tangible, the grim settings are exceptional and the imaginative and excessively gross creature designs are spot on, this film delivers everything and more."

Harmony

519
Harmony review

"Maybe the soundtrack could've been a little better, maybe the visuals appear a little empty at times, but that's just nit-picking."

Greatful Dead

518
Greatful Dead review

"Uchida delivered this amazing genre bender that may leave the uninitiated a little stunned, but should be required viewing for everyone with a soft spot for Japanese genre cinema."

Zatôichi

517
Zatôichi review

"Kitano's version is playful and quirky, but also pretty badass and harsh when need be. The film looks great, sports a sublime soundtrack and Kitano himself shines as the titular character."

Sukiyaki Western Django

516
Sukiyaki Western Django review

"This is a film for the typical Miike fan, he who appreciates the weirdness, the comical violence and the cinematic freedom you're unlikely to find anywhere else, especially in genre films."

The Animatrix

515
The Animatrix review

"Eight very distinct and unique shorts offer plenty of stand-out material, more than enough wow moments and plenty of variety to breeze through this anthology and leave you wanting more."

Spectral

514
Spectral review

"Spectral isn't the blow-out hit Netflix needs to convert the masses, nor is it the classy arthouse hit that it needs to attract a more hardcore film fan audience."

Ip Man 2

513
Ip Man 2 review

"Visually a little better than the first film, awesome fight sequences where Yen is allowed to shine and a fully satisfying finale where the final blow caused a big fat inner "Yeah!"."

Kamome Diner

512
Kamome Diner review

"It's a truly pleasant experience from start to finish, but the lack of dramatic events is sure to leave some scratching their heads."

Dead or Alive 2: Birds

511
Dead or Alive 2: Birds review

"Dead or Alive 2: Birds is an important step in Miike's progression as a director. It's a well-rounded film, one that works as a drama as well as a crime flick."

Dancing Mary

510
Dancing Mary review

"Dancing Mary is a beautifully crafted, constantly surprising and joyous little film that entertains and delights, while also offering something extra to chew on for those who care."

PTU

509
PTU review

"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."

Spriggan

508
Spriggan review

"Spriggan is a pretty fun and over the top anime feature, but only for those who can handle the silliness."

High & Low: The Worst

507
High & Low: The Worst review

"High & Low: The Worst has everything I want from this type of film. Cool gangs, dystopian settings, huge brawls and lots of posing. And for every checkbox, it's best in class."

A Town Called Panic

506
A Town Called Panic review

"If you have a soft spot for claymation or you're just looking for a zany comedy, A Town Called Panic will not disappoint."

Outrage: Beyond

505
Outrage: Beyond review

"Outrage: Beyond falls just a little short of its predecessor. Because of the fact that it feels like the middle section of a full-blown trilogy the ending isn't as convincing as it could've been."

Rise of the Legend

504
Rise of the Legend review

"Hopefully Rise of the Legend is only the first in a series of new Wong Fei-hung films, as the end left me begging for more."

Jam Films S

503
Jam Films S review

"Japan's animation anthologies tend to bring together the best in the genre while their live-action counterparts are more concerned with finding new talent."

Fist & Faith

502
Fist & Faith review

"The way he brings everything together though is quite unique, not in the least for a Chinese film maker. The result is a thorougly entertaining film that amuses, dazzles and delights."

Mr. Six

501
Mr. Six review

"The film looks beautiful, the acting is superb and while thematically a little easy the execution and blend of genres makes sure it never becomes too dull or feels too familiar."
