Rendel: Dark Vengeance Review ***--

Cert 15 | 105 mins | 2017

3 Star
The Darkest Knight Arises.
Rendel: Dark Vengeance is from Finland, which doesn’t have the biggest film industry (about 15-20 films per year), so this first feature film from writer/director (Jesse Haaja)  is a bold step trying to break into the anti-hero market, which is heavily dominated by the likes of DC and Marvel.

Cert U | 115 mins | 1956

5 Star
Shirt Ripping Romance.
Eureka Classics bring us a true classic in this 1956 Academy Award winning film. Risqué at the time of release but nowadays you would see more on a Friday night soap opera. Taken from the stage-play by William Inge of the same name, and Joshua Logan (Sayonara, South Pacific, Paint Your Wagon) takes this tale of wants…more
