Fantasia 2016: ‘A Violent Prosecutor’ review

Despite a fairly confrontational title, A Violent Prosecutor takes a surprisingly entertaining turn in what becomes a mixture between some of the best hustle films out there and The Shawshank Redemption. It’s an odd mix, but in true Korean...

Fantasia 2016: ‘Creepy’ review

Creepy review Simple titles are lovely. Here we have Creepy, and it most certainly is. Kiyoshi Kurosawa returns to continue his recent streak of great films with an unsettling nightmare of a movie. Kurosawa’s career has been as broad and...

Jason Bourne review: “Just amazing summer action brilliance.”

Jason Bourne review: Do Green grass and Damon still have that magic? And can the series survive post-amnesia intrigue? Jason Bourne review by Luke Ryan Baldock, July 2016. It’s been 9 years since Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon dabbled in the...

Fantasia 2016: ‘Some Freaks’ Review

Occasionally a film comes along that breaks down barriers we, as a society, try to ignore; taboo topics that nobody likes to address but we all know are there. Some Freaks is one such film that successfully dismantles those...

Fantasia 2016: ‘Let Me Make You A Martyr’

Let Me Make You A Martyr featured on our list of films we wanted to watch at this year's Fantasia festival. We've finally seen it and can confirm it's a strong entry in the line-up and did not disappoint. Drew...

Fantasia 2016: ‘Man Underground’ Review

Man Underground brings a smattering of science fiction to this year's Fantasia film festival. In it Willem Koda (George Basil) is a quite, well-mannered, slightly eccentric ex-geologist who spends his time hosting seminars about alien encounters. Specifically the truth behind the...

Fantasia 2016: ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ Review

The Dark Side of the Moon is an interesting foreign language film that deals with man’s inner-beast. Urs Blank is a high-profile lawyer dealing primarily in pharmaceutical mergers. He’s good at his job and has all of the spoils...
