One Million Yen Girl

0951
One Million Yen Girl review

"One Million Yen Girl is a very typical Japanese drama which does little to really set itself apart from its peers. It will mostly appear to fans of the genre, which I happen to be."

Lost Highway

0952
Lost Highway review

"Like most of Lynch's films, Lost Highway aged considerably. But while the visuals, the soundtrack and the score failed to impress this time around, the atmosphere has remained pretty much intact."

The Children

0953
The Children review

"Still, The Children is a strong entry in the recent horror hype."

The Simpsons Movie

0954
The Simpsons Movie review

"A film that doesn't deviate too much from the original show, but adds a bit of extra appeal that wouldn't have been possible if it had remained stuck on TV."

Who Are You?

0955
Who Are You? review

"Fans of Meat Grinder or likewise will probably love this film. It's lush, bursting with strong colors and lovely cinematography."

Lars and the Real Girl

0956
Lars and the Real Girl review

"Lars and the Real Girl is rare gem blending dry humor with well-dosed drama and a feel-good vibe. Many people seem to miss the humor but I've been smiling and laughing throughout the whole film."

Keane

0957
Keane review

"Thanks to Damien Lewis' stellar performance, a very visceral style of direction, and a sublime finale the film hits like a sledgehammer, which I can only applaud."

Halfway

0958
Halfway review

"In the end Halfway is a film primarily made for existing fans of the genre. It's a very good, solid entry in the genre but does little to cross any existing boundaries."

The Disappearance of Alice Creed

0959
The Disappearance of Alice Creed review

"That said, the final act is still pretty tense and enjoyable and does little to eclipse the first hour."

Heavenly Forest

0960
Heavenly Forest review

"Tada, Kimi Wo Aishiteru is a sweet, cute, good-natured and hopelessly naive little film."

The Men who Stare at Goats

0961
The Men who Stare at Goats review

"Genuinely funny big budget American comedies are very hard to come by."

Nobody Knows

0962
Nobody Knows review

"The overall quality is well above average, with peaks for the performances and the narrative drama, slowly working itself up to an emotional crescendo without ever getting sentimental."

Phobia 2

0963
Phobia 2 review

"Phobia is a good start for people interested in Thai horror, though it does lack the truly gory stuff that resides in many of it's full-length competitors."

Eyes of the Spider

0964
Eyes of the Spider review

"The soundtrack is nice, the rhythm of the film is pretty unique and the bold approach to cutting up the story line is a refreshing change. Kurosawa proves himself an interesting director."

Taipei 24H

0965
Taipei 24H review

"After a somewhat slow start Taipei 24h gets up to steam and doesn't let down again."

A Long Walk

0966
A Long Walk review

"That said, the film left me with a very contented and warm feeling."

Acolytes

0967
Acolytes review

"Acolytes could've failed in many ways, but in the end it didn't, which is quite the accomplishment."

I Don't Want To Sleep Alone

0968
I Don't Want To Sleep Alone review

"In the end I Don't Want To Sleep Alone is another typical Tsai film, with some slight experimentations that are in no way big enough to attract new viewers or to push away existing fans."

Blood

0969
Blood review

"Visually luscious, a cool take on the vampire genre and some nifty set pieces are more than enough for Blood to fly through its economic running time."

[Rec] 4: Apocalypse

0970
[Rec] 4: Apocalypse review

"I always assumed Rec 4 was going to be the last film in the series, but Balaguero didn't really wrap things up after all, leaving plenty of room for possible sequels to come."

Sun Scarred

0971
Sun Scarred review

"Part drama, part subdued revenge, which a big finger pointing at the passive attitude of many instances and people in this film, the film impresses until the very end."

Mr. Jones

0972
Mr. Jones review

"It's a selection of small details that lift this film above the rest for me."

Alone

0973
Alone review

"Fans of Shutter should really try and find this film as there is little that can disappoint them."

Afro Samurai: Resurrection

0974
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."

Ip Man 3

0975
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."
