• 25 Kids And A Dad

    Mar 11, 2015

    Director Huang Hong conjures up a few powerful moments that even the most cynical viewer will be touched by, utilising his excellent cast and some exceptional village scenery.

  • Always: Sunset On Third Street

    Feb 17, 2015

    This sumptuous work was lauded on its release and in this reviewer’s mind was not deserving of quite the reception it got at the Japanese Academy awards.

  • Arrietty

    Feb 18, 2015

    An easy recommendation as it’s still a fun-filled family adventure that is suitably heart-warming and easy on the eye.

  • Bug Me Not!

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bug Me Not!’ is an extremely lightweight production that is often so cringeworthy that you’ll have to resist the urge to hurl your remote at the screen.

  • Cala, My Dog!

    Feb 28, 2015

  • CJ7

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘CJ7’ is a warm-hearted sci-fi comedy with solid special effects and a winning performance by newcomer Xu Jiao.

    Apr 3, 2015

    Another superbly constructed piece of cinema that really captures the imagination and warms the heart.

  • Looking For Jackie

    Apr 13, 2015

    If they’d actually bothered to spend some time on the script or even just made a more likeable leading character, ‘Looking For Jackie’ could have been a half decent underdog story.

    Apr 19, 2015

    The film is really just a blatant rip-off of bigger, better movies and the majority of the martial arts action is simply laughable.

  • McDull, Kung Fu Kindergarten

    Apr 22, 2015

    The high standards of satire and sentimentality that had previously been attained have been sacrificed in a bid to be ’more accessible’ – a double-edged sword if ever there was one.

  • McDull, Prince De La Bun

    Apr 22, 2015

    With musings on death, love, nostalgia and responsibility, ‘McDull, Prince De La Bun’ is a mature work that provides entertainment with enough substance to appeal to every generation.
