AfflictionAffliction (1997)Aro Favourite
2 stars (Good Try) It didn't have the same impact twenty years on as when first viewed but the great cast still make it watchable.
DVD $15 $11.25
Beyond the Black RainbowBeyond the Black Rainbow (2010)
3 stars (Good Enough) I thought it fell away a little bit toward the end but for the most part, it was a challenging screenplay with good use of visual effects and soundtrack.
DVD $29.95
WildlifeWildlife (2018)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The 60's period details are well done. There is nothing complicated about the screenplay so it is believable. Its conduit is the son who is well played by Oxenbould who is not out of his depth working with his more esteemed mum and dad.
DVD $29.95
Tomb of LigeiaTomb of Ligeia (1965)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) A very good horror. Whilst Vincent Price is recognised as the master of the hamming it up style of acting he is the perfect casting for this genre of film. It is helped by his easy on the ear voice – it never seems to grate but is melodious.
Hell Is For HeroesHell Is For Heroes (1962)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The very good Harry Guardino heads an interesting cast in this well–made drama.
Eastern BoysEastern Boys (2013)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) After some promising early scenes, the screenplay does not have enough substance to fulfill its running time and the scenes toward the end are pretty routine.
DVD $29.95
Sorry to Bother YouSorry to Bother You (2018)Aro Favourite
3 stars (Good Enough) Although the screenplay is a bit hard to follow at times – maybe it overreaches – it is certainly fresh and deserves to be seen. It should stand up to another viewing which in itself is some achievement.
DVD $24.95
Girl in the Spider's Web, TheGirl in the Spider's Web, The (2018)
2 stars (Good Try) It failed to maintain the attention first time round but it has some good reviews and pedigree so will give it another try later.
DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
VioletteViolette (2013)
4 stars (Very Good) The period's requirements are catered for very well. The screenplay is interesting thanks in no small way to the liquorice allsorts lead character and while not zipping along it keeps moving through some good editing. The casting is spot on.
TaxiTaxi (1998)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) A contrived screenplay and although a lot of it is silly there are some good humorous segments and it is never dull.
