When Animals Dream
A good Danish horror about a 19-year-old girl Marie who discovers about her mother's strange disease and finds that she is slowly being transformed into a werewolf by the same hereditary disease. It's a slow burner of a movie but one that is fairly intense at the same time. The movie is shot nicely, edited well, scored appropriately, acted decently especially by the lead Sonia Suhl, and even directed with some careful finesse. The story builds to a great climax aboard a fishing boat. You'd think with a short running time of 82 mins this movie would have a fast pace about it but it doesn't. The gore doesn't really appear until the second half. Although billed as a horror, I'd say it's more of a drama. Overall I thought it was an enjoyable movie with a new slant on the werewolf genre.

Legend of the Witches

Legend of the Witches
Controversial at the time of it's release, this documentary charts the story of modern day witchcraft and shows through re-enactments several rituals that the religion performs such as Black Mass and the initiation of a new member into a coven. It's a very atmospheric piece with great cinematography. I think the biggest fuss of all about this documentary was the copious amount of nudity on display but this is to expected if they're showing the viewers just what goes on in dark witchcraft ceremonies. Animal lovers might be distressed at seeing a chicken killed and it's entrails fondled by a witch. I don't think it gives an accurate portrayal of all forms of witchcraft - it's just wants to glamourise the sensationalist side of the religion. An interesting but flawed documentary.

Goke, Body Snatcher from Hell
A classic Japanese alien invasion movie with an anti-war message to it. The movie opens with a UFO sighting, and a passenger plane being knocked out of the sky and forced to crash land in a quarry. From there, evil starts to infect the survivors of the airplane, and a desperate battle for survival is on. All levels of conflict ensue: characters turn against each other, the environment, and even themselves. This isn't one of those typical rubber suit movies where a giant beast smashes everything in sight while being shot at by toy airplanes. This is a slick, well-done horror/sci-fi that blends many elements and does it well. A bit of a downbeat ending with a big invasion fleet in space heading towards planet Earth. A lost gem of the horror/sci-fi genre, worth seeing.

Operation Chromite
Based on a true story set during the early stages of the Korean War, it's about a group of South Korean soldiers who have to infiltrate into the North Korean army and find out where mines have been laid outside the waters of Incheon in order for a land invasion of Allied troops led by General MacArthur played by Liam Neeson. The dramatic story is full of action and supported by a good screenplay, direction and performances. I will admit that I had little to zero knowledge before going into this and it does teach a bit of history which might not matter to a lot of people. It might not be the best war movie I've seen from Korea over the years but I enjoyed it and it was entertaining enough.

Lowlife Love

Lowlife Love
A drama about the people operating in the lower levels of the Japanese movie industry. It is somewhat based on what the writer of the movie has seen and heard over the years from working in the industry. It's about a director still trying to live off his reputation from making an indie movie years ago but too lazy to really direct a second. He also runs an acting school for deluded actresses to whom he promises roles in his next movie but in actually all he's really interested is bedding them. The movie is controversial due to it's treatment of women. It's an interesting movie showing how people are used and abused in the industry but if you're pretty smart you can use that to your advantage which is what the female lead Minami does. A worthwhile watch.

This drama is mostly riveting and it has an interesting story to tell. It's a well-directed movie by Robert Redford. The acting is great by everybody. My only problem is this movie runs a little too long and it seems stale at some points. It's based on a true story. In 1958, NBC started a game show craze especially with their hit show 21. When champion Herb Stampel is kicked out and replaced by the popular Charles Van Doren, NBC comes under fire as it's revealed that the champions may have been given the answers to the questions. As mentioned before, the acting is phenomenal. John Turturro and Ralph Fiennes are great in their respective roles as the champions. David Paymer certainly makes a slimy guy. Overall it was a good movie about corruption and it was mostly entertaining.

Imperium
A young FBI agent, eager to prove himself in the field, goes undercover as a white supremacist. Imperium is not a movie that is going to win you over at first and it's definitely not some Oscar winning contender but it's a pretty interesting and watchable thriller and Daniel Radcliffe's performance is good and you can easily see his dedication on the movie but everyone else is just very generic, one note and very bland. It does have some good moments here and there and Radcliffe's performance is good as I said but don't expect anything more than just that.

Lassie
I've watched various movies featuring the dog Lassie over the years and this one is just as good as them. Set during the onset of WWII in Yorkshire, Lassie the rough collie is sold by a poor family to a Duke who takes her up to Scotland. There she escapes and makes her down back South to reunite with her young master. It's a wonderful heartwarming family movie. The scenery and cinematography is homely, wild and beautiful and the cast is excellent which includes Peter O'Toole. You will find yourself rooting for the lovable dog and will I think be more than satisfied with the ending! Be prepared to shed a few tears as well. If you aren't an animal lover this is certainly not for you, but if you have a soft spot for our furry friends you will definitely like it. If you have ever had a faithful dog as a pet it should touch you particularly - it celebrates the loyal nature of the canine and the fulfilling relationships humans can build with them. Recommended.

A Dirty Shame
An absolutely abysmal John Waters sex-comedy about a middle aged woman called Sylvia Stickles who after a meeting with a mystical tow truck driver and a bump on the head, becomes transformed into a sex addict. From here on the whole town seem getting "bumps" on the head and the whole place becomes an uncontrollable sex mad den. It really is bottom of the barrel stuff, more cringe-worthy than funny. What on earth attracted a pretty good cast to this appalling junk is a mystery. The whole movie is full of over the top annoying characters and seems to go on and on forever. Avoid at all costs.

Winter
This is a drama about a successful painter who has a breakdown following the tragic death of his wife. The story follows how this affects the lives of his two boys. A sparse and haunting soundtrack is the perfect accompaniment to this bleak drama. Tommy Flanagan is great as the husband struggling to cope with his enormous grief despite knowing that it is affecting his children. Tom Payne is also good as the responsible older brother. Although this movie lacks standout moments it always holds your attention thanks to it's fine cast. As you'd expect this is not a fun movie to watch but does a great job of showing how hard grief can hit us all. Winter is a very good emotional drama done on a small budget. Recommended.

Ultraman Ginga: Theater Special Ultra Monster Hero Battle Royal!
I haven't seen Ultraman Ginga The Series and judging by this disaster of a movie I don't think I want to either. It's a poor tokusatsu movie full of annoying teenage characters. From what I can gather, the plot revolves around a weird energy that makes toy monsters that have faced Ultraman Ginga in the past come alive. Somehow as well, some evil Ultramen are created and face off against their good counterparts. It's all a bit of a car wreck and I was completely bored by it all. Has to be one of the worst tokusatsu movie I've ever seen. Terrible.

Dentist in the Chair
A sub-par Carry-On style farce centering on students at a dental school. Kenneth Connor plays a thief who pilfers some dentistry tools after going to the wrong premises and tries to flog them on to the students led by Bob Monkhouse. When the police start sniffing about that the tools might be at the school, the students start to panic. After a good start, the movie goes downhill fast and never recovers. For a so-called comedy there isn't much in the way of laughs to be had especially during the second half. The problem lies with the script itself which was unfortunately co-written in some scenes by Bob Monkhouse himself. I have no problem with the cast who do the best they can with the material given to them. Not worth watching if I'm perfectly honest.

The Fate of the Furious
The 8th F&F movie is a bit of a step down from the last couple of movies and IMO should have stopped at the last one but with it pulling over a billion dollars at the box office over the world I guess money talks and they've made this one. It's the most ludicrous and far-fetched entry yet in the franchise. On saying that, it's still an enjoyable fun and mindless action movie with a stellar cast, which continues the escalating mayhem of previous entries. The action for the most part is well directed and often spectacular. Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson add great presence to the movie and really elevate the scenes they are in. The scene with Jason Statham and a baby probably being the stand out scene in the movie. I didn't think Charlize Theron made for a memorable villain. If you're a long time fan of the series you're definitely going to enjoy this movie. Is there still enough steam in the franchise for it to carry on? Well that'll depend on how well it does at the box office but it wouldn't surprise me to see another F&F movie in the near future.
