  • Tokyo Tribe 2014

    ★★ Watched 23 Feb, 2015

    Imagine watching a hip-hop infused collaboration between Takashi Miike & Baz Luhrmann (minus the dark subversive wit of the former or fun frivolity of the latter) whilst being tied down and receiving the Ludovico technique from Clockwork Orange.

  • Catch Me Daddy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Feb, 2015

    Catch Me Daddy really is superb. Unflinchingly authentic and hugely gripping, director Daniel Wolfe (making his very impressive feature debut) shows real ingenuity in casting a whole slew of first-timers in front of the camera. They create a compelling air of reality that a trained actor simply couldn't muster.

    If British cinema can keep up the same level of quality in 2015 we're in for a truly great year.

  • Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever 2009

    ★★★½ Added 3

    Ti West may have disowned it but there's a lot to like about this twisted sequel. Porky's by way of John Waters and Troma.

  • Puncture 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 19 May, 2012 2

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.
