Once in a Blue Moon

Once in a Blue Moon review

"The combination of strange plot twists and original turn of events with a warm but deadpan sense of humor is the true winner here."

Winds of September

574
Winds of September review

"A very solid film with strong acting all around, some very strong shots and camera work and a pretty touching story about a group of kids growing up."

Throw Down

573
Throw Down review

"It's just a very fun and entertaining film with a good few memorable scenes. In the end it's not one of To's absolute bests, but definitely worth watching."

The Pack

572
The Pack review

"I found La Meute to be a very pleasant surprise, but I encountered plenty of disappointed reactions elsewhere."

White Vengeance

571
White Vengeance review

"A slice of tactical warfare that, at least to me, is a lot more challenging and interesting to follow. The climax is both exciting and emotional, the ending is smart and a small punch in the gut."

Xuan Zang

570
Xuan Zang review

"I thoroughly enjoyed Zang's trip, not in the least because of Huo's skilful presentation."

Reality

569
Reality review

"The less you know about this film, the more fun it will be experiencing the absurdities it throws at you."

Godzilla: Final Wars

568
Godzilla: Final Wars review

"It's decidedly cheesy, nonsensical and grotesque, but Kitamura's smart blend of vintage and modern makes it a grand spectacle that honors one of Japan's most iconic monsters in the best way possible."

The Monster

567
The Monster review

"The Monster is one of the best straight-up horror films I've seen in the past couple of years. It's creepy, it's dark and tense from start to finish."

The Machinist

566
The Machinist review

"While many of its peers have trouble keeping themselves standing the second time around, The Machinist thrives on a strong and gloomy atmosphere, intriguing characters and a stand-out performance."

Coraline

565
Coraline review

"If you get the chance to see this in theaters, I advise you to do so. And if a DVD becomes available, it's probably good to pick the one with the most extensive making of feature available."

Attack the Block

564
Attack the Block review

"As it stands though, Attack The Block is a highly enjoyable film that blasts by in no time. It's a quality production that will hopefully secure a follow-up project for Joe Cornish."

Fate

563
Fate review

"Wai Man Yip succeeds in creating something that feels very fresh and unique, looks great and leaves something mysterious behind."

Aliens

562
Aliens review

"Regardless of its diminishing appeal, Aliens is still a film I love revisiting (though the next time I might just ditch the Director's Cut)."

Café Lumière

561
Café Lumière review

"Café Lumière held up pretty well, which isn't even that surprising knowing its appeal lies in the mundane."

Love in the Buff

560
Love in the Buff review

"Love In The Buff is a very worthy sequel. It's hard to say which film is the better one of the two, for that I should probably watch them once more, back to back."

Left Bank

559
Left Bank review

"The atmosphere is pleasantly bleak, dark and loaded, there's a little audiovisual bravoure, the actors are on point and the plot keeps you guessing."

The Greasy Strangler

558
The Greasy Strangler review

"It's a crazy film, full of oddball characters, strange conversations and overstated emotions, executed in such a way that it becomes madly funny."

The Insects Unlisted in the Encyclopedia

557
The Insects Unlisted in the Encyclopedia review

"Miki has a very peculiar sense of humor. The jokes can be pretty absurd and out there, but the delivery is always deadpan."

Kamome Diner

556
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."

Involution

555
Involution review

"Involution is a superbly styled, impeccably scored, intriguing and challenging sci-fi that easily outdoes the majority of its peers with just a fraction of their budget."

Bodyguards and Assassins

554
Bodyguards and Assassins review

"Very much recommended if you've been enjoying the epic productions of the previous decade."

Cub

553
Cub review

"With his first feature, Govaerts delivers a rock solid genre film. It's tense and moody, never too gory, beautifully shot, aptly scored and generally well-directed."

Exte: Hair Extensions

552
Exte: Hair Extensions review

"Exte: Hair Extensions might feel like his most commercial film to date, but that is mostly a disguise. It's a fun, crazy and surprisingly eerie film."

Eternal Moment

551
Eternal Moment review

"Stylishly visualized, strongly acted and pleasantly diverse, Eternal Moment is another great film in Yibai Zhang's oeuvre"
