No Score Yet Casting (2017) It's no small feat to have made a film that holds its own as both a pseudo-remake and an original piece in its own right. Squirming my way through Casting has me intrigued by Wackerbath's previous film, Everyday Objects... - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

No Score Yet Gold Dust (2020) While I wasn't particularly taken by Gold Dust, I'd be interested to see what Wall works on next. There's the seed of a good movie here and I'm hopeful that this will come to fruition somewhere in the future. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

No Score Yet Blue Film Woman (Buru Firumu no Onna) (1969) Of the four Pinku movies I've caught recently; Blue Film Woman isn't the worst, but it definitely feels like a missed opportunity. But then again, I'm pretty sure the filmmakers weren't really going for the whole, female empowerment gig. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

93% The Perfect Candidate (2020) The Perfect Candidate is now available on selected VOD sites and is well worth your consideration while you're self-isolating, or at any time for that matter. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

78% Murder Death Koreatown (2020) In the spirit of trying to find a positive element to Murder Death Koreatown, the score and sound design are easily the most compelling element. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% Philophobia: Or the Fear of Falling in Love (2019) The aesthetic choices and percussive pervasiveness in the score help represent Damien, the man, the podcaster and philophobic. This project is clearly a labour of love and I'm looking forward to Tyler Cole's next production. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

96% A White, White Day (Hvítur, hvítur dagur) (2020) There's a great deal to absorb in A White, White Day. It's quiet, it's mournful but not without brief moments of levity and hope. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

66% The Furies (2019) The Furies sprints frantically for survival with a compelling story, a rock-solid performance from Airlie Dodds and captivating cinemaphotography by Garry Richards. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

85% Empathy, Inc. (2019) Empathy Inc. is a cautionary tale for those willing to re-align their moral centre to keep a white-knuckle grasp on their middle-class trappings. The brisk 97 minutes are well-paced, the narrative is lean, and the conclusion is unexpectedly emotional. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

63% Child's Play (2019) This reimagining keeps a respectful distance to what has come before but is very much its own beast, and can totally be enjoyed as a separate thing, on its own terms. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

No Score Yet Cotton Wool (2017) What Nicholas Connor has accomplished is impressive. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

43% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) It's bad enough director Michael Dougherty squanders the scenery-chewing Charles Dance, we also have to endure the human slice of dry white, crustless bread that is Kyle Chandler. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

28% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) This narrative thread goes boldly nowhere and Sean Patrick Thomas' character (as the partner of the deceased husband) is unduly side-lined. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Detective Pikachu articulates a fully realised world, rich with creatures and craftsmanship that someone with even a cursory knowledge of Pokémon can enjoy. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
