T-Meter Title | Year
7/10 83% High Life (2019) It's a movie that provokes a lot of contradictory emotions -- it's charming and bleak, graceful and grimy, erotic and repulsive. It's challenging, experimental sci-fi, and there's not enough of that around. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 84% Under the Tree (Undir trénu) (2018) Like something from Fargo, you'll laugh, feel bad for laughing, and then laugh again, with the crisp but stylish cinematography and direction also bringing to mind the same Coen classic. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 94% Hitler's Hollywood (2018) It's fascinating stuff, not least because this era of film history is rarely explored, especially in formats as accessible as this. - Starburst EDIT

52% The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977) A couple of unnecessary narrative additions aside, The Island of Doctor Moreau is a well-made adaptation of an important sci-fi novel. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) The movie's sharp sense of humour is at its peak in our hero's phone calls to Klan head David Duke, who remains utterly oblivious to teases of Stallworth's true identity. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 95% Beauty and The Beast (La Belle et la bête) (1946) It's the style with which Cocteau brings his fairy tale realm to life that makes this film stand the test of time. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) It has no desire to do anything new or polemical, but it gives us fans what we want -- Tom Cruise hanging off of things, the team back together, quick-witted deception antics, and a heavy dose of charm. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet They Came to a City (1944) While these issues are powerful and indeed still relevant, however, the lack of subtlety with which they come to a head in the final minutes may grate on some viewers. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 94% Yukinojo Henge (An Actor's Revenge) (1971) You can see why studios kept hiring Hasegawa; he gives a mesmerisingly layered performance as Yukinojō. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 90% Michael (1924) Michael acts as a powerful reminder of the progressive, artistic sensibilities that made German cinema of the 1920s one of the most fascinating periods of the medium's history. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) With it now reaching home media, it's time to ask: is it really that good? In brief: yes. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 69% mother! (2017) The shocks aren't there for the sake of it. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 63% The Andromeda Strain (1971) Gidding's script prioritises the scientific process over any kind of drama or character, and the bulk of the movie which details this process can seriously plod. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 91% Murder on the Orient Express (1974) What it needs to make it work is a strong cast, and this version certainly succeeds in that regard. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 82% Death on the Nile (1978) The way the investigation plays out is more dynamic than that in Orient Express, with less of a focus on interrogation only and more twists and turns to come, and the ending is very satisfying. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 100% White Heat (1949) The star of the show is undoubtedly Cagney, whose performance raises White Heat above typical cops 'n' robbers fare into an intense study of a psychologically troubled character. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 77% Dr. Cyclops (1940) The story and characterisation is where this movie falls apart, even given the fact that you know from the start it's going to be schlocky. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 89% Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 (2016) The most striking satirical target is the take on America itself, now a post-apocalyptic wasteland - where it may feel a little close to the bone right now. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 95% The Survivalist (2017) Aside from a strong performance from Goth and a commendable willingness to show us the gory stuff, The Survivalist is a miserable film that outstays its welcome. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) What We Do in the Shadows is both a refreshingly different take on vampire conventions and one of the funniest comedies of the year. - Starburst EDIT
