"The Review's Better Than The Film"

Borg vs McEnroe [Borg McEnroe] *** (2017, Sverrir Gudnason, Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård) – Movie Review 

Sverrir Gudnason is pushing 40, playing 25, but he still makes a grand slam job of playing tennis champ Björn Borg, who is shown here having big fat jitters on the eve of his possible historic […]

Laissez bronzer les cadavres [Let the Corpses Tan] * (2017, Elina Löwensohn, Marc Barbé, Bernie Bonvoisin, Dorylia Calmel) – Movie Review 

I don’t suppose you would expect subtlety, laughs or a nice, gentle time from a movie called Let the Corpses Tan. Well, you are certainly not going to get any of that kind of stuff. […]

Come September *** (1961, Rock Hudson, Gina Lollobrigida, Sandra Dee) – Classic Movie Review 6034

Sicilian Ghost Story **** (2017, Julia Jedlikowska, Gaetano Fernandez, Corinne Musallari) – Movie Review 

Sicilian Ghost Story is a beautifully imaginative, quite mesmerising and haunting Italian film art work. Julia Jedlikowska stars as young Luna, who loves her 13-year-old boyfriend Giuseppe (Gaetano Fernandez) truly, madly, deeply. Giuseppe reciprocates that love. But Luna’s […]

Beast ** (2017 Jessie Buckley, Johnny Flynn, Geraldine James, Trystan Gravelle) – Movie Review 

Writer-director Michael Pearce’s British feature debut drama starts quite well, proceeds fairly well, then gets messy mid way and loses it in the last half hour. Jessie Buckley stars as disturbed 28-year-old Moll, who is living on Jersey […]
