The Force Beyond
One of the many sensationalist documentaries that came out during the 70's to prove that alien beings and UFO's exist. The host Donn Davison tries to tell the viewer through accounts from eye witnesses and blurry photographs/videos that without a shadow of a doubt UFO's are visiting this planet. Davison also investigates Bigfoot and psychics trying to pinpoint the location of Atlantis. At the time I'm sure some people would have been convinced enough to believe everything that is said here is true. However, since this time there has been better evidence and more interesting documentaries to make the viewer think again and this one looks phony and poorly made. Fine to watch once but has nothing earth shattering to convince you that something is out there.

Adult Life Skills
A delightful British comedy about Anna, a woman approaching 30 years of age who lives in a shed at the bottom of her mother's garden and refuses to move on with her life after the death of her twin brother. It takes a little boy Clint whose mother is dying of cancer to make her realise that she has to face closure and go forward. It's one of those movies with quirky characters, amusing dialogue and an uplifting theme. Jodie Whittaker in what I believe is her first leading role in a movie (she usually appears in TV dramas) does very well as Anna and you can relate to her troubles - the struggle of letting go a loss so great that one thinks her life will never be the same, that it's impossible to move on. Despite this, it's not a morbid movie at all. It's full of comedy. Overall I thought this was a great movie which is worth watching.

Transformers: The Last Knight
The 5th Transformers movie and hopefully Michael Bay's last as the director in the franchise is absolutely terrible (the whole franchise as a whole has been bad IMHO). Awful script with scenes melded together in a disjointed manner and completely dumb dialogue. What you call a typical Michael Bay movie really and an excuse to set off a lot of explosions (he sure likes his pyrotechnics!). It's basically two and half hours of pure nonsense. I like Mark Wahlberg as an actor but he is poor in this movie and such a shame to see Anthony Hopkins being dragged into this shambles (although I'm sure money was a big motivation!). On the whole a tedious movie to sit through.

CHIPS
CHIPS was one of my favourite cop shows from the 70's so when I heard that they were going to make this movie into a buddy comedy I wasn't too impressed. After having watched this movie however and thinking I wasn't going to like it I've changed my mind and was pleasantly surprised. This movie was really funny and packed full of laughs. There is some action but the majority of this movie is all about the raunchy humour. Plot wise its pretty predictable but that doesn't really matter. Dax Shepard and Michael Pena play off each other well enough and you don't mind following them through this story. There's even a cameo appearance from Erik Estrada (the original Ponch from the TV series) right near the end. Don't listen to what the critics are saying about this movie - it's funny and wild; pure entertainment. Just sit back, relax and laugh.

Your Name
This is one of the best anime movie you'll ever see and close to perfection. Makoto Shinkai has come up with a masterpiece. The plot is thought-provoking and touching, with much to say and explored expertly and neatly with no heavy-handedness. The storytelling engages throughout and hooks you into its world and never lets go. The 2 main characters are well thought out and their chemistry with each other is heartfelt. It's superbly paced, perfectly edited so not to make a mess of the constant jumps. The animation is stunning, so beautifully and intricately drawn with immaculate attention to detail in the backgrounds. The soundtrack by Radwimps is also fantastic. I could go on for ages how good this movie is. Bottom line: Your Name is a spellbinding movie that you really need to see. Prepare to be surprised by its beauty and twisting story.

We Are X
A brilliant documentary about one of the best rock bands in the world: X-Japan. Having been a fan for 18 years I loved everything about this movie. It charts X-Japan's colourful history from 1982 and the incidents that have rocked the band (the lead vocalist Toshi being brainwashed for 10 years by a cult, the suicide death of their lead guitarist Hide and the sacking of another member Taiji for reasons unknown to the fans). It reveals the ups and downs, times of happiness and pain, about overcoming and moving forward. This documentary culminates with X-Japan's epic reunion gig at Madison Square Garden. Their leader Yoshiki has an aura about him, it's hard to explain the bond he has with fans. He is just incredible. I hope this movie will garner new fans for the group. If you love rock or music in general then you have to see this memorable documentary.

Queen of Earth
A slowmoving psychological drama about a woman with a mental state that's on a downward spiral after her father died. It has a bit of a eerie 70's mystery feeling to it stylewise both visually and emotionally (even though it takes place in now time). But instead of getting intrigued I just found it rather dull instead, perhaps a bit to do with the fact that I didn't find anything particularly likable about any of the characters (or interesting for that matter) and they were all fairly self-absorbed. Some scenes just go on forever with mumbling monologues of which I often found myself not knowing what exactly they were talking about because for one they mumbled quietly and also the eerie music was really loud, so that didn't really help, and the ending is rather abrupt. So yeah what can I say, not for me I guess.

Okja
Bong Joon Ho's newest movie is part sentimental childhood adventure, part hardcore animal activism movie and part surreal R-rated dark comedy. It's about a GM super pig created by the agrichemical corporation Mirando that's been raised in the wilds of South Korea as a potential solution to global hunger. Mirando comes back to claim the super pig and take her back to the US for consumption. Her young owner Mija though refuses to give up her pet without a fight. The movie doesn't flinch around its unsubtle messages about animals, factory farming and GM foods, to say the least. Some might be taken aback or even appalled at the unapologetic hardcore animal liberation themes, which include graphic, uncomfortable scenes of sadistic animal abuse, and even holocaust allusions. Seo-Hyun Ahn is wonderful as Mija, Okja's loving companion, and the first 30 minutes or so that focuses on their relationship is the strongest material here. The less said about Jake Gyllenhaal the better. He is so embarassing as a wacky, perpetually drunk, borderline psychotic television host. Tilda Swanson is hopeless as well. The movie goes on for far too long. A good 30 mins needed to be cut. Okja is a moderately entertaining affair, but there's no question in my mind that it Bong's least impressive movie to date.

Love Me Do
This is a great London-based love story with a twist about a female investment banker and an out of work actor whose relationship veers off the rails towards crime. Set entirely in a minimalist London townhouse, it follows their relationship from the beginning where neither trusts one another and it just builds from there. Jack Gordon and Rebecca Calder are excellent as the couple. It's not a fast movie and it involves a lot of talking but it is richly rewarding. I didn't know what to expect from this movie having heard so little about it but it was well worth checking out.

The Armed Policewoman
Lackluster HK action comedy about a group of new armed female police officers on the job. I was expecting an all action movie and although the set pieces on show are entertaining, it concentrates mostly on the silly situations the new recruits gets up to. Carrie Ng is probably the best out of all the cast. Quite disappointing.

Your Lie in April
Last year I enjoyed watching the anime version of Your Lie In April as it had memorable characters, a great soundtrack and a touching storyline. Would the live action version be just as good or not? It's a story about a teenage boy Kousei Arima who gave up playing piano after his mother passed away. Two years later, he meets a beautiful and free spirited violinist Kaori Miyazono, in the month of April, who inspires him to face music again. This movie closely follows what takes place in the anime though they've had to squeeze in everything into the 2 hour running time. Naturally they've had to cut and change some things so the movie mostly concentrates on the two teens' relationship. I felt they didn't do the scenes of Kousei not being able to hear music properly very well. In the anime he feels like he's underwater and sounds feel muffled. What they did in this movie instead wasn't as good. Suzu Hirose as Kaori and Kento Yamazaki as Kousei do a good job of representing their characters though I would say Yamazaki shades it better than Hirose. For those that haven't seen or read the anime/manga, be prepared to get those tissues out near the climax. Overall, I think this was a decent enough adaptation but I would definitely recommend that you see the anime to get the full picture of the story.

The Blonde Fury (Female Reporter)
Cynthia Rothrock is an FBI agent who goes undercover as a newspaper reporter in Hong Kong to catch some money counterfeiters. Your not going to watch this movie for the storyline but for the fights and Cynthia delivers with some good set pieces though you will have to wait until halfway through the movie for them to appear. They're fast, inventive, brutal, intricate and with a lot of genuine skill on display. When you've got Corey Yuen choreographing the fights you know they are going to be great. Cynthia is OK in her acting and is quite charming. Slow to begin with but then puts it's foot on the pedal with the action, The Blonde Fury is very entertaining.

Han Gong-ju
A teenage girl who has been subjected to a terrible atrocity tries to escape her past by moving away to a new area. Her new classmates at achool doesn't understand why she's so cold with them and no matter how hard she tries, her past ultimately catches up with her. This hard hitting drama is based apparently on a real life incident in South Korea that took place in 2004. It takes a while for the viewer to get used to the jumps back and forward in time. The story is also a bit of a slow burner as what Han Gong-Ju has been subjected to takes it's time in rearing it's ugly head but when the revelation is revealed it's enough to make you sick. Chun Woo-hee is superb as the title character in what is a difficult subject to tackle on film but she does extremely well. Make no mistake, this isn't an easy movie to watch but it's gripping and devastating. Another brilliant movie from South Korea.

Girl with a Pearl Earring
A wonderful and subtle movie, with great attention to detail. Sets are magnificent, particularly Vermeer's house and the canal at night. Atmosphere was beautifully captured, showing just why life could be so oppressive for a live-in servant, even if she was generally well-treated. This movie provides real insight into 17th century Holland. Scarlett Johansson is excellent as Griet with Colin Firth also excelling as the Dutch master painter Johannes Vermeer. All that's left to say is this movie is a visual tour de force.
