T-Meter Title | Year
8/10 No Score Yet Fonotune: An Electric Fairytale (2019) FINT wears his influences - Jim Jarmusch, Shinichirō Watanabe, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and graphic design, amongst others - plainly on his sleeve, and there is much to love here for cinefiles who are that way inclined. - Starburst EDIT

No Score Yet Gekijô-ban Kâdokaputâ Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura) (1999) A typical but decent shoujo anime, which should delight the tween crowd. The older viewer may still find enjoyment in the show, but if your time and money are limited there are far better options to spend both on. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 100% World on a Wire (2011) A challenging and rewarding film experience. A three-hour film in German, with English subtitles, is no easy watch, but it moves along at a pace, and the sheer artistry of the cinematography is every bit as important as the dialogue. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet The Ancient Magus Bride (2017) Once you get over the initial discomfort of the premise, it's hard not to fall for Chise, and sympathise with Elias, a protagonist who is very much trying to do the right thing but who doesn't always know what that should be. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Lunatics: A Love Story (1992) Lunatics could very well gain a second life as a cult hit. There's certainly enough there for that, but part of you wonders how the film could have turned out if the balance between wacky craziness and unconventional romance. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet My Neighbor Totoro - Studio Ghibli Fest 2018 (2018) The original Japanese-language voice work of Noriko Hidaka and Chika Sakamoto is charming, beguiling and sincere, although you may also want to check out the English dub. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 Premiere (2019) Bizarre, funny, and genuinely affecting, Mob Psycho 100 is a recommended addition to the anime collection of fans of action and the experimental - just give it more than the usual three episodes to find itself. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 75% The Quiet Earth (1985) Lawrence is compelling, and as a balding, middle-aged man is a refreshing lead for a movie that, if made in Hollywood now, would star Will Smith, Tom Cruise, or whoever the hot, young, brooding leading man of the hour happens to be. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet 2036 Origin Unknown (2018) Aside from a slightly jarring clash between the almost-too-clinical space-bound model work and the interior shots of Sackhoff at work, there is little to dislike here, and a fair amount to enjoy. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 92% Arcadia (2017) After a gentle introduction which could almost begin any straightforward look at the subject, things begin to get a little weird. - Starburst EDIT
