Furies review

"Bad-ass action scenes, striking cinematography, and a bunch of colorful characters elevate a rather basic filler flick into a clear and confident genre highlight."

Silent House

Silent House review

"I'm not sure just how much it differs from the original and as is the case with all remakes, I assume it's best to leave some time between watching this and La Casa Muda."


Wheat review

"Everyone looking for a more toned-down, stylish yet amusing war film should have a go at it. Remember that the first half our is a bit rough around the edges, things will get only better after that."


Following review

"Nolan never managed to allocate the extra budget for his following films in any meaningful way."

Nasu: A Migratory Bird with Suitcase

Nasu: A Migratory Bird with Suitcase review

"An interest in the cycling sport comes in handy. You'll notice many familiar situations and even recognize some funny little parallels with the real world."


6ixtynin9 review

"In the end, Ruang Talok 69 is a very fun ride, nicely shot and awesomely scored, presented with a great sense of humor and key scenes that are wonderfully executed."

The Detective 2

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."

Hell Dogs

Hell Dogs review

"The stylish locations and ditto cinematography, a slightly more distinct and contemporary score, and solid performances elevate a simple crime/action film to something more distinct and valuable."


Sakura review

"Sakura may look like a harmless little timewaster from the outside, but it harnesses a darker core that rears its head after making sure everyone in the audience has lowered his guard."

Peony Pavilion

Peony Pavilion review

"If you want a love story set in early 20th-century China that subverts traditional gender roles, complemented by impeccable styling and stand-out performances, this should be your go-to film."


Super review

"Super is an excellent addition to the nerdy superhero genre."

Wolf Children

Wolf Children review

"When Hosoda keeps it small and strays away from dramatic arcs the film is at its best, but Hosoda often overplays the drama and ends up with scenes that are far too mushy and melodramatic."

Milocrorze: A Love Story

Milocrorze: A Love Story review

"Milocrorze may not be as polished or technically proficient as Survive Style 5+, Ishibashi's film is way more ambitious than any of its peers."

The Tag-Along

The Tag-Along review

"Still, it's nice to see Taiwan deliver a good horror film like this. The acting is well above par, the film looks great and the added couleur locale is sure to please seasoned horror fans."

The Assassins

The Assassins review

"The film looks beautiful, Chow Yun-Fat is superb and the strategic implications of the story are intriguing."


Parade review

"Parade is quite a lengthy film and the first hour you might be excused for wondering what all the fuzz is about."

The Last Hero in China

The Last Hero in China review

"The action choreography is superb, Li is at the top of his game, the comedy is bonkers and there are at least a few scenes that will linger well beyond the credits."

The Wonderful World of Captain Kuhio

The Wonderful World of Captain Kuhio review

"While a tad long, Kuhio Taisa is a great film that has little or no trouble keeping your attention. Sakai does a great job portraying Kuhio as a weird, devious but ultimately likable character."

Wild 7

Wild 7 review

"If you don't mind a mindless (stylized) action flick once in a while you could do much worse, the action scenes are pretty kick-ass and the styling is slick and sexy."

The Graduates

The Graduates review

"It's a pretty good film for newcomers and hardened fans alike. The film is accessible, has enough drama for those not quite used to the slow pacing and leaves enough room for meandering thoughts."

Electric Shadows

Electric Shadows review

"There is a little cruft near the end and some parts could've been streamlined a little better, but overall it's a sweet and endearing film that shows a deep love for cinema."

River of First Love

River of First Love review

"That said, it's a film that caters to fans of light-hearted Japanese dramas, doing little to even try and persuade people outside of its niche."

The Boxtrolls

The Boxtrolls review

"On a technical level The Boxtrolls is an absolute masterpiece. The whole film looks lavish from start to finish."


Jam review

"Jam is great entertainment, sporting a healthy amount of black comedy, coupled with solid performances, refined styling and some interesting narrative twists."

The Seasoning House

The Seasoning House review

"The Seasoning House isn't a perfect horror film."
