Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
7/10 No Score Yet Bubba the Redneck Werewolf (2014) Bubba the Redneck Werewolf is a film as shamelessly trashy as the town in which it's set and the people who populate it but is an endearing piece of low-budget filmmaking that belies its limited resources with audacity, creativity and heart.‐ Starburst

8/10 67% Downrange (2017) Fortunately, despite (or perhaps because of) Downrange's nihilistic hopelessness, it's a masochistically enthralling experience. ‐ Starburst

6/10 64% The Lullaby (2018) While the haunting apparition is certainly compellingly sinister enough, in terms of ghost action the film doesn't really offer much more than any B-class J-horror from fifteen years ago.‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet Knuckleball (2018) The blunt simplicity of Knuckleball's story makes it easy to dive into, while the intense action keeps you riveted right up to its closing moments.‐ Starburst

7/10 71% Rabbit (2017) The emptiness of the Australian wilderness has seldom looked so beautifully threatening, the wide desolation paradoxically feeling claustrophobic.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Spookers (2017) Overall, Spookers is a film whose constituent parts don't quite fit together, but nevertheless remains an eminently watchable piece of documentary filmmaking.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Trench 11 (2017) A decent instalment of a recurrent subgenre, Trench 11 manages to be several films at once, each complementing the other in their amalgamation into a singularly realised tale of dread and terror.‐ Starburst

9/10 80% Dave Made a Maze (2017) The very concept of Dave Made a Maze is completely ridiculous, and it's by fully embracing this absurdity that its appeal shines bright.‐ Starburst

2/10 No Score Yet Battalion (2018) The shoddy effects and stilted acting might just coalesce into something vaguely fun if you're the kind of person who enjoys watching trashy films in the company of like-minded friends for the entertainment value of their sheer awfulness.‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet The Three Don'ts (2017) Coarse, crude and unrelenting, The Three Don'ts is a brutal and compelling sucker punch of a debut, and one that promises great things to follow from its emerging talent.‐ Starburst

5/10 No Score Yet Throne of Elves (2016) Visually luminous but narratively lacking, Throne of Elves is a visual delight and should be entertaining enough for the young audience at which it's aimed, but older viewers will likely find its rudimentary and overfamiliar plot somewhat wanting.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Sightings (2017) Sightings is a straightforward story driven by familiar notions and is largely devoid of any action, and is all the more compelling as a result.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Inhumanwich! (2017) Creating an intentionally bad film that ends up as something entertaining rather than utterly disposable is much harder than you might think ... but the blunt force nostalgia trip of Inhumanwich! ... can be counted among them.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Coffin 2 (2017) Coffin 2 is a decent enough follow-up to its predecessor, but is bogged down by too many characters and is overall just a little too clever for its own good.‐ Starburst

5/10 83% Vampire Cleanup Department (Gao geung jing dou fu) (2017) Vampire Cleanup Department starts well but ultimately ends up in overly familiar territory that meanders through a short running time.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet The Mole Song: Hong Kong Capriccio (Mogura no uta: sennyû sôsakan Reiji 2) (2017) The Mole Song: Hong Kong Capriccio is a decent enough follow up and delivers everything we've come to expect.‐ Starburst

8/10 100% Snow Woman (Yuki onna) (2016) Snow Woman is as beautiful and haunting as its titular spirit, a sinister and mesmerising tale that lingers in the senses like the deep chill of her deadly breath.‐ Starburst

6/10 75% Killing Ground (2017) Killing Ground makes a genuine and wholehearted effort to be something different, and to a certain extent succeeds, but with the rest of it being too much of more of the same it doesn't stand out quite as much as it hopes to.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Raid dingue (2016) RAID: Special Unit is a lot of fun to begin with, but its simple setup doesn't have the substance to sustain it for the length of an entire film.‐ Starburst

4/10 No Score Yet The Dark Mile (2017) The entire final third of the plot appears to be missing. ‐ Starburst

8/10 80% Double Date (2017) A straightforward but consistently entertaining plot driven by smart dialogue and varied permutations of character interaction, Double Date is a rare fusion of genres that does justice to each.‐ Starburst

9/10 78% The Little Hours (2017) The humour is unabashedly crude and the dialogue largely improvised, but what could so easily have been merely a single Nuns Gone Wild joke stretched out to 90 minutes, The Little Hours is instead a riotous delight of brazen lechery and bawdy absurdity.‐ Starburst

7/10 83% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) Simultaneously satirising the predictability of disaster movies and the vacuity of teenage social cliques, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea is an odd amalgamation of contrasting tropes, but an engaging collage of experimental filmmaking.‐ Starburst

9/10 79% The Oath (2016) The Oath begins as merely involving, but as its emotional intensity pulls you deeper into its spiralling vortex of scheming, it soon becomes utterly compelling.‐ Starburst

7/10 86% Okja (2017) It's an intriguing and entertaining movie, certainly, but also one where a little more focus could have made it so much better.‐ Starburst

8/10 98% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) Like one of Suzu's artistic sketches, In This Corner of the World is a beautiful and compelling portrait of real life, and despite its harsh portrayal of the realities of war it's a story in which hope remains paramount.‐ Starburst

7/10 100% Bad Day for the Cut (2017) There is a strong suggestion that cycles of vengeance merely go around and around, an observation of particular poignancy for a country with a recent history so mired in conflict and one that in making Bad Day for the Cut is at its most insightful.‐ Starburst

4/10 0% Bad Kids of Crestview Academy (2017) Bad Kids of Crestview Academy is certainly a film aware of how inherently daft it is, but it's nowhere near good enough to praise, nor does it reach the levels of endearingly bad in the way a legion of cult movies have remained popular.‐ Starburst

8/10 93% My Pure Land (2017) An important story beautifully told that highlights the inequality of Pakistan's patriarchal society, My Pure Land is exciting, tense, uplifting and tragic, and uncompromisingly grips you right up to its final moments.‐ Starburst

7/10 68% Cars 3 (2017) If you thought the previous films were entertaining and harmless fun then you'll think this one is much the same.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
8/10 No Score Yet The Night Watchmen (2016) The Night Watchmen is a raucous riot that starts fast and never relents right up until its closing moments. It asks only your indulgence and delivers utterly, remaining a gory and hilarious ride every step of the way.‐ Starburst

7/10 79% Without Name (2016) Without Name is less a story and more an experience, and while its unfocused style of reality warping may make a little difficult to focus on, it also allows you to just sit back and experience the ride.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
8/10 90% Always Shine (2016) Always Shine takes a while to make its points fully clear, but the friction and tacit hostility simmering all the way makes for a slow-burning but engrossing watch.‐ Starburst

9/10 81% Dig Two Graves (2017) Dig Two Graves is a sinister yet serene tale whose every moment warrants your full attention.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet The Evil Within (2017) [It] will not be for everyone, and as the years pass it's likely that the story of its prolonged production and tortured creator will become better known than the film itself, but one thing you can say for sure ... Getty has left his mark upon the world.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Shooting Clerks (2016) Once it gets going, Shooting Clerks is a funny and charming story that remains engaging even if you're already familiar with parts of it.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
9/10 No Score Yet Nutcracker (2017) A dark yet humorous tale of suspense, manipulation and romance, Nutcracker is many things at once, but they all blend together perfectly into a cohesive whole, resulting in a tale straightforward yet intricate that makes a brutal and memorable impact.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
8/10 No Score Yet Blood of the Tribades (2016) Its themes are as eternal as the undead who populate it, while at the same time being worryingly - perhaps even a little terrifyingly - contemporary.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
4/10 7% Rings (2017) As a revival of a once-popular franchise it's a wasted opportunity, and no amount of prophetic visions, surreal imagery or portentous drivel can convince otherwise.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
7/10 No Score Yet Bornless Ones (2017) Bornless Ones possesses enough of a distinct identity to be of interest even to those who feel they've seen it all before.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
3/10 No Score Yet The Snare (2017) It tries to create and maintain an atmosphere of pervading tension, but through its unrealised premise, uneventful plot and simple lack of any real story, it utterly fails to hold your attention.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2016
8/10 91% Dearest Sister: Nong Hak (2016) The film industry of Laos is still in its infancy, but if Dearest Sister should be taken as a benchmark of expected quality, then it shouldn't be long before the southeast Asian nation makes a mark on the international stage.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
4/10 59% The Mind's Eye (2016) Although The Mind's Eye has high aspirations, it's let down by a vaguely defined premise, a thin plot and boring characters.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
9/10 94% Finding Dory (2016) Finding Dory is an enchanting tale that never once fells like an unnecessary retread, and while not quite surpassing its predecessor, it at least equals it. And when the pedigree you're talking about is this high, that's quite an achievement.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
7/10 64% K-Shop (2016) The film doesn't actually judge people for their behaviour, but that's not to say it doesn't take gleeful relish in acting out precisely the kind of thing that many of us have thought about, whether we're willing to admit it or not.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
6/10 30% American Hero (2015) American Hero is a decent idea, but is let down by sloppy execution and meandering plot. ‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2016
7/10 No Score Yet Pale Star (2016) Pale Star will not be for everyone. For the same reasons that some will find the film deep and significant, others will think it dull and pretentious. What can't be denied it that it's an experience of pure cinema.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2016
3/10 No Score Yet Billionaire Ransom (Take Down) (2016) A couple of distinctive moments stand out amidst the tedium, such as a rather innovative use for a compound fracture, but everything about Take Down is an overfamiliar slog from start to finish that holds no surprises or excitement.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2016
4/10 60% The Rezort (2015) The Rezort contains nothing distinctive beyond its initial premise, and ultimately offers little more than the countless scores of others to mine a similar vein.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2016
5/10 No Score Yet The Virgin Psychics (Eiga: minna! Esupâ da yo!) (2015) Everything eventually culminates in a muddled finale that fails to make clear what the genuine revelations are supposed to be, or offer any sense of true conclusion to the story, making you wonder what the point of it all was.‐ Starburst
