Nightshooters Review ****-

Cert 18 | 100 mins | 2018

4 Star
Booms, Bangs and Bullets.
Writer/director Marc Price (Magpie, A Fistful of Lead) brings us a feast of action, blood, martial arts and bullets, in a dark comedic way that draws you in to each of the characters, whether they be the goodies or the baddies. Nightshooters is a great film for any horror or action fan and it comes across…more

Born Yesterday Review

4 Star
Love, Violence and Education
George Cukor’s (The Philadelphia Story, Gaslight,  The Marrying Kind, My Fair Lady) 1950 Born Yesterday has been given the Arrow Academy treatment and can now be enjoyed in Blu-ray quality.

Speed Kills Review ***--

Cert 15 | 102 mins | 2018

3 Star
Buckle Up for a Fast Ride.
Apparently plucked from obscurity Jodi Scurfield has become a director with a Hollywood star as lead. Speed Kills is presented like a biography and seems to be a semi-biographical film about Don Aronow. With speed, drugs, a King (Prashant Shah, A Gentleman) and a Vice-President (Matthew Modine, The Dark Knight Rises, Backtrace) there is plenty to…more

Laura [1944] (Masters of Cinema) Review *****

The Who’s Who of Who Done It.
Once again Eureka (Masters of Cinema) brings us #196 in their unmissable classic film restorations. Laura is one of The American Film Institute’s 10 best mystery films of all time.

Backtrace Review ***--

Cert R (Restricted) US | 92 mins | 2018

3 Star
Some Thing’s Are Best Left Forgotten.
On paper this film should be a hit with hard hitting stars Stallone (Rocky, Rambo, Escape Plan, The Expendables)and Modine (Full Metal Jacket, The Dark Knight Rises, Speed Kills) but that is where it stops and it should have remained on the paper. Director Brian A. Miller (Vice, The Prince) takes first time feature…more
