Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
6/10 81% Have a Nice Day (Hao Ji Le) (2018) This is a stylish crime thriller that manages to say a lot with very little, and it finds time to dwell on what all those disfigured cityscapes and dreams mean for a nation in flux.‐ Starburst

8/10 94% Sicilian Ghost Story (2017) It's an array of surprises and character introspections that take their time to manifest completely, but prove an inspired way for the directors to go about their business.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet The Last Warrior (The Scythian) (2018) This is one of those films though where a few scenes degrade the entire spectacle.‐ Starburst

7/10 80% A.i. Tales (2018) [The short films all contain] a character having to defy odds, expectations or even their own will in the name of 'something greater'. A reliable set up for any beyond-this-world story then, even if like most short movies these four are quite minimalist.‐ Starburst

7/10 13% Viking Destiny (Of Gods and Warriors) (2018) Of Gods and Monsters is unlikely to trigger rapturous applause from whoever is watching, but is more than satisfying and sees a strong cast work their magic.‐ Starburst

5/10 No Score Yet Genesis (2018) Genesis often feels like a badly-stitched collage of other sci-fi movies, and while that can often still make for decent entertainment for anyone who likes that kind of thing, Grant and Hannah aside, this is an unremarkable effort.‐ Starburst

2/10 20% Astro (2018) So many ideas, so little running time, and so little capacity to realise Akbar's vision renders this project a near-failure.‐ Starburst

3/10 No Score Yet Killing Joan (2018) There is some comment about femininity to be made in how Joan is markedly different to every other woman in the film, but it is underdeveloped and never emerges from the shadows of the movie's poor execution. ‐ Starburst

8/10 69% Prodigy (2018) It's about as heart-warming as a rabid alligator and twice as scary, but as psychological dramas go it ticks all the right boxes.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Homesick (2013) Thought-provoking it is, and while perhaps it could have been more, Homesick is a fine watch. ‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Apocalypse Road (2016) Apocalypse Road is considerably better put together than it easily could have been, and given a flick of style courtesy of a mesmerising synth score. ‐ Starburst

3/10 No Score Yet The Body Tree (2016) Ultimately, The Body Tree cannot decide what it wants to be. Not scary enough to be a horror, but not clever enough to be a murder mystery.‐ Starburst

6/10 87% Zoology (Zoologiya) (2016) It feels like a lot more could have been done with an idea and setting which lends itself to so much, and yet gives less than it promises.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet The Veil (2017) Not a perfect film, but definitely enjoyable for those already a fan of this genre. ‐ Starburst
