  • King Kong vs. Godzilla, 1963 - ★★★
    Apart from all the American insert-shots made to explaining what is happening on screen this movie is quite enjoyable. Again the practical special effects is very well done and the models looks very good. I must confess that the fight scenes between Kong and Godzilla looks oddly, something about the cameraman didn’t adjust the camera […]
  • Godzilla Raids Again, 1955 - ★★★½
    Godzilla Raids Again has more action, destruction and kaiju. This might have seemed like the perfect recipe for a second Godzilla and in many ways it is. But it lacks a story and some interesting characters that you care for. But the destruction is very well made and special effects looks great for its time.
  • Godzilla, 1954 - ★★★★½
    The godfather of all kaijo movies and deceivable so! The story is fine for a monster movie and the special effect are just awesome. The miniatures are very well made for the time and even today some places they actually look very “real”. They got so many things right in this movie and that is why […]
  • Horror Express, 1972 - ★★★★
    This movie was just so much fun to watch, love the practical effects. First half is pretty good but then surprises with the second half of the story. I didn’t expect to go this way.
  • Vigil, 1984 - ★★★½
    This movie is from 1984, but it just looks timeless. The films looks and feel like the middle ages and it looks so good. It’s a good coming of age story and their performance by child actor Fiona Kay is just out of the would. Also Vincent Ward wrote some of the story of Alien 3 […]
  • Hounds of Love, 2016 - ★★★½
    Well made at gruesome to watch at times. The director cleverly uses sound and cut and leaves the rest to your imagination. Powerful movie and good performances by all actors involved.
  • The Sunchaser, 1996 - ★★
    The second half is the better part of this spiritual journey. Wasn’t impressed by Jon Sedas performance which was overall weak and over the top.
  • Black Mama, White Mama, 1973 - ★★½
    Well this film got it all, doesn’t it? It does have less Pam Grier bad ass and kicks from her which is a shame.Little too much cliché and some laughable action sequences, which at the same time is quite enjoyable. ;)
  • The Tale of Zatoichi, 1962 - ★★★★
    Slice of life Samurai! I love this first instalment of Zatoichi franchise. It’s a nice introduction to the character. Lovely sword fights and Zatoichi magic fast sword fights is so well made. Love how fast they are. Beautiful filmed and some nice authentic locations.
  • Night of the Living Dead, 1968 - ★★★★½
    The godfather of all zombie genres. Technically very well made and a great study in film techniques.
