THE QUAKE Review

Though the movie is capable, it’s missing the extra push to keep it away from using to the familiar tropes it wants to avoid.

AMERICAN STREET KID Review

There may be more creative or more technically composed documentaries out there, but I have never in my life seen a documentary, or any film for that matter, that made me care about the people on screen as much as American Street Kid.

LEPRECHAUN RETURNS Review

With its bare-bones plot, lackluster characters and foolish adherence to slasher tropes, Leprechaun Returns is a film that, despite some excellent effects work, should have been left at the bottom of the well.

CLARA’S GHOST Review

Marking her feature directorial debut, Bridey Elliott makes a splash with Clara’s Ghost, a dysfunctional family comedy with a supernatural twist featuring her real-life family as the drunken cast of characters.

neck and back 6

SONG OF BACK AND NECK Review

Song of Back and Neck would make for a perfect Netflix Original. It’s an inoffensive, slightly heartwarming comedy with a few recognizable names and a universally relatable plot about the stresses in our lives. Unfortunately, it’s also a fairly bland and forgettable affair, also perfect for Netflix viewing.

GHOSTBOX COWBOY Review

Ghostbox Cowboy is like hanging out with a witty schizophrenic comedian. Its techniques may be difficult for an audience to bear or comprehend, but it is damn smart and damn funny.

TIME SHARE Review

So masterfully directed is Time Share that its tale of wolfish sales tactics crosses over from petty satire and enters into emphatic human drama.

BURNING Review

Chang-dong’s technique of the aloof and mysterious slow-burn, buttressed by moments of poetic and moving expression, make his latest a must-see.

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK Review

If Beale Street Could Talk is a beautiful, necessary film that is an absolute must-see and is, hands down, one of the best, richest movie-going experiences one can have this year.

ZOMBIE Limited Edition Blu-ray Review

It’s been nearly 40 years since Lucio Fulci’s Zombie hit the big screen, and it remains one of the best zombie films ever, in a genre that has become somewhat stagnant over recent years due to complete saturation in TV, film and video games.

SHOPLIFTERS Review

At its core, Shoplifters explores the harrowing journey of a family that is brought together by a system that has collectively failed them, but it’s their love for one another that makes this a truly special cinematic experience.

THE CLEANERS Review

I know it may be shocking to hear, but the internet can often be a cesspool of horrors, beaming the most abhorrent, awful things humans are capable of straight onto our screens.

THE FAVOURITE Review

The Favourite is a film that combines a brilliant script with a visionary director and employs the talents from an incredible cast to coalesce into a filmgoing experience I won’t soon forget and one of my favorites this year.
