Cannibal Club - Still 2 5.5

THE CANNIBAL CLUB Review

Nothing is expounded upon, just introduced (sometimes in a shocking manner) and resigned to a sedentary existence amongst other ideas launched and ignored.

1. Birds of Passage - L to R - José Acosta and Natalia Reyes 7.5

BIRDS OF PASSAGE Review

A cross between Dances With Wolves and Narcos, Birds of Passage is dangerous education that thrives in originality.

AUDITION Arrow Blu-ray Review

Audition remains one of the best films in the now-vast filmography of one of Japan’s most prolific directors, and its shocking content has easily held up since its release in 1999.

Mega Time Squad 4 7

MEGA TIME SQUAD Review

Mega Time Squad, is an entertaining romp that poses the question of what would happen if an utterly inept criminal gained the ability to time travel.

THE POSSESSED Arrow Blu-ray Review

Bazzoni and Rossellini’s film has all the trappings of a classic noir, shot in beautiful black and white with a slight dash of early giallo sprinkled in for good measure.

THE FIFTH CORD Arrow Blu-ray Review

With its brilliant, on-the-nose title, you may think that you know what to expect from Robert D. Krzykowski’s The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, and while it does contain those two things, at its core, this is a bittersweet love story about an aging war hero reminiscing about the life he once had.

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Review

Alita: Battle Angel feels like it was made in 1999, just with a modern coat of CG paint that only slightly brings the film into the 21st century. Perhaps that’s because it’s based on a manga series released in 1990 or because it’s essentially an amalgamation of every other cyberpunk science-fiction picture, but regardless, Alita is a messy endeavor that may push motion capture to new heights but lacks any other identifiable qualities
