• 13 Assassins

    Jul 2, 2015

    A grand tale of men banding together to fight an unrelenting evil, content to die if they can free their land from the marauding tyrant and his gargantuan army.

  • 14 Blades

    Jul 2, 2015

    It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.

  • 71: Into The Fire

    Sep 17, 2016

    This slick looking and battle charged war film doesn’t stray too far from the well worn war movie path but certainly tells an inspiring and conflict heavy tale from the Korean War.

  • 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • About Her Brother

    Feb 15, 2010

    ‘About Her Brother’ showcases Yamada’s deft understanding of the Japanese family, yet has a universality that ensures each significant moment hits home no matter where in the world it is viewed.

  • Aftershock

    Feb 16, 2015

    A well made drama that follows the lives of a small group of characters after an horrific event, ‘Aftershock’ may disappoint those looking for the regular disaster movie tropes but those in the mood for a rewarding character piece should check it out.

  • Alien Vs. Ninja

    Feb 16, 2015

    For a change, ‘Alien Vs. Ninja’ is an amusingly titled, low budget action movie that actually lives up to expectations.

  • 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.

  • At The End Of Daybreak

    Feb 18, 2015

    Social realist cinema can be the most edifying and informative genre the medium can offer, but Ho Yu-Hang’s style is such that the only sensation to get from the screen is mild hyperthermia.

  • Axis Of War: My Long March

    Feb 19, 2015

    Only recommended to war completists and those who find overt sentimentality and propaganda pushing easier to swallow.

  • Axis Of War: The First Of August

    Jun 9, 2015

    This is only for the war history (and propaganda/sentimentality pushing) completist out there. Those wanting a war combat fix best look elsewhere.

  • Bad Blood

    Feb 20, 2015

    At times, the film will have you slipping into a catatonic state and you’ll just be praying for the next bit of action to come along.

  • Beauty On Duty!

    Feb 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘Beauty On Duty’ is that it’s essentially a distillation of the legion of unfunny moments that Wong Jing has created throughout his long career.

  • Big Tits Zombie

    Feb 23, 2015

    Boobs and blood can be a fun distraction but they aren’t enough to make up for a complete lack of anything else.

  • BKO: Bangkok Knockout

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘BKO: Bangkok Knockout’ delivers pretty much exactly what you would expect; a non-stop rollercoaster ride of brutally brilliant fight scenes housed in a sorry excuse for a movie.

  • Blades Of Blood

    Feb 24, 2015

    A classy affair all round, ‘Blades of Blood’ is an invigorating and hugely enjoyable slice of chanbara styled storytelling from Korea.

  • Blood Of Warriors

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘Blood of Warriors’ certainly tries its best but is far too hampered by the excessive melodramatics and the general feeling of historical action epic fatigue.

  • Bruce Lee, My Brother

    Feb 26, 2015

    Those jonesing for action may feel the pace sag, but ‘Bruce Lee, My Brother’ is a brilliant period family drama.

  • Bunraku

    May 10, 2015

    While its uniqueness may not be for all, ‘Bunraku’ wears its quest for originality proudly on its sleeve and for the most part succeeds at offering a different take on an old Western/Samurai style set up.

  • City Under Siege

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘City Under Siege’ plods along to something of an anti-climax after nearly two hours, never achieving logical pacing or suspense.

  • CJ7: The Cartoon

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘CJ7: The Cartoon’ is a definite step down from the original, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a fun companion piece that can be enjoyed by all the family.

  • Confessions

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Confessions’ balances between cold hard reality and a subtly dream-like atmosphere that convinces the viewer that there isn’t a world outside of this horror.

  • Confucius

    Mar 1, 2015

    What starts off as quite interesting and engaging becomes progressively more disjointed meaning drama and characters suffer.

  • Cyrano Agency

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Cyrano Agency’ is a clever distillation of all of those sweeping moments that Korean love stories are known for.
