"The sense of adventure, wonder and delight is what set this film apart, combined with a great eye for detail and perfect pacing it makes for a sprawling, joyous fantasy film."

Getting Any?

Getting Any? review

"If you take the silly premise for granted, there's actually a rather large variety of comedy on display here and even though not every joke will hit, a lot of them do. "

Before Born review

"It's obscurity stands in the way of easy availability and while it's definitely a good film, it lacks a little uniqueness to call it a true masterpiece."

A Chinese Odyssey: Part One - Pandora's Box

A Chinese Odyssey: Part One - Pandora's Box review

"A Chinese Odyssey is entertainment in its purest form. The comedy is hilarious, the pacing is excruciating, the film rolls from one memorable scene to the next and the level of variation is exemplary."

[Rec]2

[Rec]2 review

"If you didn't like the first film, I can't see how you'll like this one. Stylistically the films are very much alike, though the directors made better use of the style this time around."

Sleepwalker

614
Sleepwalker review

"Like I said before, Sleepwalker is a pretty simple film. Everything is neatly revealed and tied up at the end, the plot doesn't contain any real big twists and runs smoothly from start to finish."

Saint Young Men

613
Saint Young Men review

"It houses a pretty chill, good-natured and dry kind of comedy that felt refreshing and to the point."

Nightfall

612
Nightfall review

"If you're familiar with the genre, don't expect any surprises."

Orochi

611
Orochi review

"The addition of the fantastical figure gives Orochi a somewhat novel feel though."

Ninja Scroll

610
Ninja Scroll review

"It's delightfully and excessively violent, sporting superb creature designs, a bold and expressive art style and brisk pacing. Everything you'd ever want and need in a gory, macho action film."

Kung Fu Hustle

609
Kung Fu Hustle review

"The perfect showcase for Chow's trademark mix of silly, over-the-top comedy and deadpan execution. Genuine laughs and crazy martial arts scenes make this one of the most entertaining films around."

Life Show

608
Life Show review

"A pleasantly executed film featuring a strong lead and some good solid drama, splendid scenery and just breaths the couleur locale."

The Isle

607
The Isle review

"While a little rough around the edges, there are many moments of raw beauty, contrasting cruelty and tenderness in a way only Ki-duk can, creating one of the most contorted romances ever put on film."

Drug War

606
Drug War review

"If you like the HK police flicks Drug War is one of the best offerings around. It's a stylish, tense and strong crime flick, helmed by one of the most seasoned crime cinema veterans. "

Crows Zero II

605
Crows Zero II review

"Crows Zero II will probably appeal to the people who liked the first film and can bear a second, almost identical, serving."

Thermae Romae II

604
Thermae Romae II review

"While it's probably best Takeuchi stops the series here, this second film was anything but redundant."

Outrage: Beyond

603
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."

Ace Attorney

602
Ace Attorney review

"Ace Attorney is a Miike blockbuster. The weirdness is kept to a minimum, but the entertainment value is high and the film definitely has its moments of brilliance."

Blood: The Last Vampire

601
Blood: The Last Vampire review

"It's short, it packs quite a punch and even though I had some minor gripes, the pacing, the visual quality and the kick-ass lead character make it very easy to forget about these minor quirks."
