• Assembly

    Feb 18, 2015

    A personal story told on a grand scale ‘Assembly’ is as good as war flicks get, finding a near perfect balance between a personal journey and large scale combat.

  • Big Man Japan

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Big Man Japan’ isn’t always quite as quirky and clever as it thinks it is but is nevertheless another entertaining example of why Japanese cinema is at the forefront of the unique and creative.

  • Black Belt

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Black Belt’ could well be a cult hit that influences those who follow it. It is not a flawless masterpiece, but its differences – as well as its similarities – make it a work that is worthy of its popularity.

  • Blood Brothers

    Feb 24, 2015

    Not a complete waste of time as it does provide some basic gangster movie stylings but ‘Blood Brothers’ is just that: an exercise in style and a style that has been done much better by other films.

  • Brave

    The very limited and poorly shot action sequences are a huge letdown and the rest of the film is just one bad plot twist on top of another.

  • Bubble Fiction: Boom Or Bust

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bubble Fiction: Boom Or Bust’ is a giddy cocktail of absurdism, social commentary and sci-fi adventure with the laughs eventually conquering everything.

  • D-War

    I’m normally a sucker for a cheesy monster movie but ‘D-War’ fails to produce the goods on just about every level.

    Great characters, action and design make this an excellent fantasy adventure which harks back to the fun time fantasies such as ‘Willow’, ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’ and, yes, even ‘Krull’.

  • FB: Fighting Beat

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘Blood Fighter’ isn’t that bad but it’s just been done so much better before and nothing no fight film fan hasn’t seen a million times.

  • Fighter

    Mar 12, 2015

    More believable than your average martial arts coming of age film and less pretentious than a lot of other serious, urban set dramas.

  • Flash Point

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Flash Point’ isn’t a perfect film in the classical cinematic sense, but it is a damn fine action movie that doesn’t short change the viewer in any department.

  • God Man Dog

    Mar 17, 2015

    Chen Singsing’s film is a gentle and often realistic portrayal of humans dealing with grief and loneliness.
