    The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

    ★★★★

    After stopping an attempted murder, Sam decides to start his own investigation to find the killer.

    A definitive giallo and Agento's first, is an insanely well realised debut. The architecture and filming of it, the camera capturing it as it the buildings and areas were all pieces of art. This is one of those films that make we hate digital cameras as they never look as good as this does (shot on film) and this was released in 1970. You…

  • Pig

    Pig

    ★★★★★

    After his Truffle Pig is kidnapped, Rob leaves his isolated home to go back to the city and find his beloved pet, in doing so must face his past that he left behind years ago.

    If you have been following some of my recent reviews it may seem like I'm not a fan of slow burn narratives but that definitely isn't the case, I love a good slow burn as long as they are done well, as is the case…

    Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky

    ★★★★★

    Riki-Oh (a.k.a Ricky-ho or Ricky) fights his way through a corrupt prison posing the question, is he stuck in there with them or are they stuck in there with him?!?!

    Managed to get a bunch of mates around for a double feature based off my list; The ultimate beer and pizza list boxd.it/cPUou. I started with a pre-show, showcasing some retro trailers (Zombie Lake, Eyes of Fire etc) then went onto our first feature; Riki-oh. It is an absolute grindhouse…

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★½

    Shang Chi is on the run from his father, the owner of the legendary 10 rings who wants him back to help find Shang Chi's deceased mother.

    I am admittedly a Marvel fan from way back, I do notice the formula (it's hard not to after 7000 films), but I still enjoy the heck out of them, it's cool to see the characters from the comics I used to read on the big screen and so well realised. However Shang…

  • Poltergeist

    Poltergeist

    ★★★★★

    A family faces off against angry spirits that have taken one of them to the other side.

    What a way to start off HoopTober with this Tobe Hooper masterpiece. This is a much argued about controversial film due to rumors and gossip that spread about director and curses alike, all of it false but giving it a very interesting legacy and keeping it in the forefront of horror pop culture for years.

    The movie is a masterclass for the genre,…

  • Armour of God

    Armour of God

    ★★★½

    A cult of dodgy monks kidnap Asian Hawk's friend wanting The Armour of God for her return.

    Jackie Chan does James Bond by the way of Indiana Jones in this zany action comedy. This is completely my kinda thing... Cults, lost civilizations, gratuitous 80's band, biker gangs, a great car chase, kicks to the head and um... what ever that weird convertible Mitsubishi thing is.

    I have been showing my 9 year old son these Jackie Chan movies which he…
