Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
10/10 92% Children of Men (2006) Enjoy it for its story, enjoy it for its entertainment value, and enjoy it for its intelligence. Just watch it.‐ Starburst

5/10 0% Dead Time Stories (1986) It nips along at a fair pace, with a running time of only 83 minutes, but it never makes an impact.‐ Starburst

7/10 83% La religieuse (The Nun) (1971) Don't be fooled by its reputation. The Nun isn't here for shock value, but tune in to its drama and you'll find an interesting film helped by a strong central performance.‐ Starburst

7/10 77% Baskin (2016) Building up a steady and oppressive atmosphere, with grubby and disturbing sights, it does lose its edge towards the end, backing out when it should push itself over the cliff. There's still much to be interested in.‐ Starburst

9/10 90% Dude Bro Party Massacre III (2015) If you're a 5SF fan you'll be glad to see all the gang here, throwing themselves into the film and obviously having a good time doing it. ‐ Starburst

2/10 No Score Yet The Terrible Two (2018) The Terrible Two struggles to find its footing, pulled apart by horror tropes, dodgy acting and unrealistic characters.‐ Starburst

4/10 84% Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) Shin Godzilla is a film filled with far more government meetings than Godzilla action. A lack of compelling characters and an abundance of bureaucracy make Godzilla's big screen return a let-down.‐ Starburst

7/10 92% Replace (2017) Replace starts off shakily but soon settles in to its own groove. You've seen some bits of it before but it's got enough twists and turns to keep you interested until the end.‐ Starburst

9/10 90% Tokyo Godfathers (2003) With peerless animation, plenty of laughs and just as much heart, Tokyo Godfathers is an absolute joy. It should appear high on your list of alternative Christmas movies.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Blood Feast (2017) It's not a cinematic masterpiece, but if you're in the right mood, Blood Feast is an enjoyable and short watch.‐ Starburst

5/10 No Score Yet New Battles Without Honor and Humanity 1 (Shin jingi naki tatakai) (1974) Prolific director Kinji Fukasaku, best known for Battle Royale, struggles against bloated plots, bringing only a hint of the flair for camerawork and directorial style that he showed in his late career teenagers-slaughtering-each-other masterpiece.‐ Starburst

6/10 38% Death Note (2017) It's probably not going to win over the Manga faithful, but Death Note is entertaining fun despite its failings.‐ Starburst

6/10 91% Lord of the Flies (1963) The ideas and plotting of Golding's novel shines through, but this adaptation fails to find its power as it feels the need to rush through to the end.‐ Starburst

7/10 77% The Ghoul (2017) Gareth Tunley's first feature film is an interesting and strong calling card. It struggles to find its feet at times, but it's enough to make you look forward to what he'll do next in a hopefully exciting and fruitful film career.‐ Starburst

1/10 33% Kuso (2017) Despite its love of toilet humour, and attempts to be disgusting and oh-so edgy, Kuso is nothing but a humourless and tiresome trudge, destined to be watched only by young teenagers with poor taste in films.‐ Starburst

5/10 No Score Yet Bad Frank (2017) With strong performances and some solid direction, Bad Frank is enjoyable and compelling through its first half but starts to fall apart in the final act.‐ Starburst

7/10 76% The Void (2017) Aesthetically nice with some really great practical effects, it shows that Kostanski and Gillespie have the talent and potential for a truly exciting future.‐ Starburst

6/10 69% Free Fire (2017) The great cast get to have a lot of fun with some enjoyable dialogue but things slow down once the shooting starts. It's just entertaining enough to last the ninety minutes but you'd rather the characters were talking rather than shooting.‐ Starburst

6/10 57% The Neon Demon (2016) The Neon Demon is wonderful looking, has a great soundtrack and has some interesting ideas floating around but it tries your patience with its sluggish pace and lack of drive.‐ Starburst

1/10 No Score Yet The Laughing Mask (2014) It's difficult to know where to start with this film and as advice to a potential viewer, we would say it's best not to start it at all.‐ Starburst

5/10 No Score Yet I Am Alone (2015) Though it doesn't bring anything new to the table and isn't all entirely successful, I Am Alone is an enjoyable if forgettable entry into the zombie and found footage subgenres.‐ Starburst

6/10 59% High-Rise (2016) It often looks great but an enjoyable first half gives way to a dull and dragging second half, due to the film's lack of focus and drive. There are things to admire and enjoy but High-Rise can't help but be a bit of a disappointment.‐ Starburst

7/10 85% Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh) (2015) Goodnight Mommy has a surreal, almost fairy tale quality.‐ Starburst

6/10 100% The Propaganda Game (2015) he Propaganda Game is an interesting documentary for those who don't have a lot of knowledge of the country but it lacks the depth and revelations that would make it a must watch on the subject.‐ Starburst

1/10 60% Aimy In a Cage (2015) Aimy in a Cage is an annoying frenzy of a film that will push your patience further than any film should.‐ Starburst
