Aliens

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)."

Afro Samurai: Resurrection

799
Afro Samurai: Resurrection review

"If you're up for some good solid fun and don't have too much trouble neglecting the grating dub and soundtrack, there is plenty of amusement to be had from this film."

Being John Malkovich

798
Being John Malkovich review

"High concept, highly original, and impossible to reproduce, and Jonze has a proper handle on his film at all times, even when things get pretty hectic and confusing."

White Vengeance

797
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."

August in the Water

796
August in the Water review

"Probably one of his most accessible films, though there is still plenty of wonder and authorship to be admired."

Blind Detective

795
Blind Detective review

"The package is stylish, quirky and fun at the same time. In the end I prefer To's more arthouse-oriented work, but a film like this is a welcome diversion, especially when executed so wonderfully."

Drunken Master II

794
Drunken Master II review

"The pairing of Liu and Chan results in some of the coolest and frantic martial arts moments ever put on film, making it that much easier to forget about all the film's shortcomings."

Jam Films S

793
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."

Sauna

792
Sauna review

"Sauna is an impressive experience, solid in just about every department. Extremely strong lead, nice and fitting visuals, great soundtrack and intriguing storyline."

The Detective 2

791
The Detective 2 review

"The Detective 2 is a very solid sequel, somewhat different in tone and execution as the first film, but that's not really a bad thing."

Once Upon a Time in Shanghai

790
Once Upon a Time in Shanghai review

"Between the stunning cinematography, the impressive fight scenes and the fast-paced plot it's hard not to like at least some part of Once Upon a Time in Shanghai."

The Brøken

789
The Brøken review

"By far one of the most stylish horror films to come out of England in quite a while. Ellis proves himself a great director, who can handle more than one style."

Ip Man 3

788
Ip Man 3 review

"Wilson Yip did well to wait a couple of years before making this third instalment. Yip Man 3 is a worthy successor, in every way possible."

Code 46

787
Code 46 review

"Code 46 serves a vivid vision of the future, a world that looks and feels plausible, even when reality should've caught up with it by now. A sign of clever, relevant sci-fi if there ever was one."

CJ7

786
CJ7 review

"A film that could charm you as easily as it could disappoint you. Chow is enough of a director to pull it off, but those wanting another typical Chow comedy will be left with empty hands."

Ghostland

785
Ghostland review

"A horror film pur sang, lacking forced attempts to mix in other genres. It's raw, brutal and disturbing, but always with a twist and executed to perfection."

Liar Game: The Final Stage

784
Liar Game: The Final Stage review

"Liar Game has a couple of minor flaws and doesn't quite escape its TV background, but it has plenty of positive elements to erase these minor shortcomings."

Island Etude

783
Island Etude review

"Island Etude is a nice little film bearing little to no weak points, but never really excelling either."

American Psycho

782
American Psycho review

"The performance of Bale is stellar, the pacing and characterization are on point and the dark comedy is razor sharp, though I'm certain it won't be for everybody."

Before Born

781
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."

Ex

780
Ex review

"Ex is a film that shows the good and the bad. The main characters are not all that lovable, nor are they horrible people."

The Possession of David O'Reilly

779
The Possession of David O'Reilly review

"That said, The Torment is one of the most tense and gripping horrors I've seen in quite a while. A true genre film that gets all the details right and creates a perfect sense of distress."

While the Women Are Sleeping

778
While the Women Are Sleeping review

"While the Women Are Sleeping is a fine mystery/thriller. The film looks great, sports a good soundtrack, has a perfect cast and handles both its mystery and its audience with the proper respect."

Zhou Yu's Train

777
Zhou Yu's Train review

"There's a basic quality that keeps Zhou Yu's Train on its feet, even though I've seen better and more creative variations from China in more recent years."

Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior

776
Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior review

"A superb central performance of Jaa, amazing fight and chase scenes and some of the most bone-crunching martial arts moves recorded on film. First-class action cinema."
