A man wakes up to find he’s the last survivor of a zombie apocalypse. Fine addition to the subgenre, focusing on character and heart rather than on horror thrills; though there’s not much more to say about zee, this fills in a few gaps pleasantly enough.
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.
Two decades (pre- and post-WWI)in the lives of two men and the woman they both love. Peerless example of the French New Wave; its impact dulled by time perhaps inevitably, but nevertheless a fascinating movie crammed with daring thematic and technical ideas.
Ethan Hunt and his team battle a nuclear conspiracy involving followers of Solomon Lane. Splendid series continuation from Part 5 (MI: Rogue Nation), with hugely-impressive stuntwork and the usual emphasis on twists and double-crosses. Recommended.
Brisk, breathless SF/action mashup of Limitless, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Besson’s own La Femme Nikita plus a dozen other sources to make something daffy, hugely enjoyable, and totally nonsensical.
