Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Case.
Julien Leclercq (The Informant) brings Jean-Claude Van Damme (Double Impact, Bloodsport, Universal Soldier) to a new genre for him, Film Noir.  This is a bit of a shock for Van Damme fans as we expect the splits and high kicks , but at 59 I suppose we have to forgive him that, however…more

In Space, No One Cares
If You Scream.

 
Director/ writer Kō Matsuo (Natsuyuki Rendezvous) gets it right, with this slice of the one year war In U.C. 0079. The Gundam collections grow and this is the slickest yet. With great character creation and sweet animation that shows off the manoeuvrability of the modern mecha suits and the vulnerability of those inside…more
