Surprising feel good movie based on the real life events of a would be female wrestler. Funny, witty with a confident cast and a plenty to like. Very enjoyable!
A low-budget film crew is trapped in a high-rise – due for demolition – by gangsters. Impressive micro-budget action comedy with some great gags, fine stuntwork and fight choreography. Lots to enjoy for genre fans; the film’s limitations work to its advantage.
A boy lives in a railway station clock. Splendid family adventure, as well as a love letter to early cinema. Scorsese enjoying playing in a new genre and with some fresh cinematic toys, not least the remarkable use of 3D. Hugely recommended.
A blocked writer seeks refuge in his deceased aunt’s haunted house. Awkward comedy-horror with neither enough scares or laughs. Some weird moments linger, but the overly-busy screenplay (Vietnam trauma, childhood bereavement, etc) and flat TV-style lighting and direction don’t help.
Reggie teams up with two fellow travellers to find Mike. Decent series continuation with some neat asides about middle America. For fans only by this stage, but a few striking moments for newbies as well.
Reggie and Mike stalk The Tall Man across America. Straightforward sequel to the 1979 original, retaining a little of the first movie’s dream logic, but focusing more on road movie thrills and on upgraded makeup effects set-pieces.
A slacker builds a cardboard labyrinth in his living room. Deliberately quirky horror-comedy, which takes its single idea as far as can reasonably be done. Inventive and fun, this doesn’t outstay its welcome.
