0/5 43% What Lies Below (2020) What Lies Below is a movie that looks like it ran out of ideas, money and talent halfway through it's production. Utterly forgettable and unless you collect bad movies that aren't any fun to watch, one to avoid. - Starburst EDIT

5/5 73% Archenemy (2020) Archenemy is a compelling blend of Don Quixote, The Maxx and Flexx Mentallo with a sprinkling of true crime drama for good measure. - Starburst EDIT

2/5 31% 2067 (2020) The problem is the story; it's a very thin tale, one that would have made a great short film. Alas the narrative is stretched to snapping point and the viewer ends up more than a little bored. - Starburst EDIT

5/5 100% Ashens and the Polybius Heist (2020) This feature is a geeky, funny feast; Spaced for the YouTube and 8-bit generation. More like this please. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet G-Loc (2020) It's low-budget is quite obvious and we would really love to see what Paton can do with some heroic funding. - Starburst EDIT

2/5 47% LX 2048 (2020) It is partially saved by some amazing key moments and twist. Ultimately, though, it's just too long and way too interested in its own cleverness. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 53% Mortal (Torden) (2020) Wolff does such a good job of playing an out-of-his-depth weirdo that we don't care too much about him. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Mortal is an antidote to the superhero blockbuster, but it could have been so much more. - Starburst EDIT

3/5 50% A Night of Horror - Nightmare Radio (2019) If you're the sort of person who likes their scary stories short but doesn't spend their time at movie festivals or scouring YouTube, then this is what you want. We hope to see more stuff like this in future. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 67% Black Ops (2020) The Ascent is unique, clever and unforgettable. Just be careful you don't end up watching it on loop. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 39% Proximity (2020) The problem is the story itself. It's too long, it's unoriginal and it features story notes that never fail to irritate. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Girls Just Wanna Have Blood (2020) Girls Just Wanna Have Blood doesn't really care where the line is. When the jokes land, they land well. Some of them are real clunkers while others are pretty quotable. It's almost cute but it's definitely very, very dumb. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 88% Onward (2020) Though not a classic, it's a fun feature with something for everyone. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 12% The Turning (2020) The Turning is a big bundle of wasted potential. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 81% Abominable (2019) Abominable is a lovely movie which, rather than having a cold and cynical heart, is filled with the warmth of friendship and creativity. It's quality family fair of the extra cuddly kind. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) This being a Fast & Furious movie, we also have some ridiculous car chases and some amazing stunts. It's basically a fireworks display with punching. It's also a lot of fun. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 27% UglyDolls (2019) UglyDolls' worst feature is that it's rather bland. For a movie about embracing one's differences, it does seem to be pretty much identical to the many other 'summer holiday kids movies' out there. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Assassinaut (2019) Assassinaut is a waste of time for everyone involved and should be avoided, unless you really, really like practical horror effects. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 51% Tolkien (2019) It's a gentle tale with terror and love as its central theme. Epic storytelling at its best. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 77% I Kill Giants (2018) I Kill Giants isn't really about giants. It is about loss and growing up, and that's something that we can all relate to. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Attack on Titan: The Roar of Awakening (Attack on Titan: Kakusei no Houkou) (2018) It's hard to really understand what this is for. Fans of Attack on Titan will want to five the full series a watch, rather than this butchered shorthand. At two-hours, it's a heck of a long recap. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Redwood (2017) Beckingham is especially notable and certainly one to watch out for in future movies. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Beyond the Trek (2017) Ignore this and catch a couple of episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation on Netflix instead. - Starburst EDIT

3/10 No Score Yet The 13th Friday (2017) It's filled with interesting ideas, but we wouldn't recommend it other than to examine a case study in failure. - Starburst EDIT

3/10 No Score Yet The Last Scout (2017) The Last Scout is, alas, a bit of a lost cause. Leave the woggle at home and rewatch Silent Running instead. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Spaghettiman (2016) This is a perfect beer and pretzels movie (or pasta and meatballs, if you prefer). - Starburst EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Night People (2015) The various plot elements could have been tighter and the various twists given more emphasis. Despite these flaws, though, it's a good indie horror anthology and we hope to see more. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 12% Good People (2014) What could have been a darker version of Home Alone may have saved the entire thing, but the obvious lack of budget means it doesn't really go anywhere. - Starburst EDIT

2/10 36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) To give this film a decent score would be an insult to the many low-budget features out there that scrape every penny they can find together to produce something good. - Starburst EDIT
