5/5 91% Pride (2014) This film has the same feel-good, small town charm as previous films on the subject such as Brassed Off (1996); it feels like a warm glass of milk (but with a whiskey chaser). It's incredibly bright and uplifting‐ Indie Mac User

5/5 76% Match (2015) Stewart's performance here is Electric; an in your face and no-holes-bared tour-de-force which gives us a full frontal look into his characters psyche; however some may find it overplayed at times it is a delight to watch none the less.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

4.5/5 33% Madness in the Method (2019) The film somehow manages to fulfil its own legacy as we see Mewes take on an unexpected and scene stealing role and you could draw comparison to this recent trend in films challenging stereotypical casting such as Uncut Gems & Mandy.‐ Indie Mac User

4/5 86% Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus) (2017) This film follows in the great tradition of quirky European comedies such as Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 'Amélie' but also is strongly influenced by 'fish-out-of-water' comedies with the most obvious being 'Lost In Translation'. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

4/5 90% B&B (2018) a small, claustrophobic film with an excellent ensemble cast and almost perfect pacing. The cinematography is simplistic and deliberately bland and with a subtle scoring which allows the story and performances to be powerfully effective....‐ Indie Mac User

4/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Margot Robbie once again brings her all to the role of Dr. Harleen Quinzel and provides more layers to her character adding to her excellent performance in Suicide Squad.

4/5 70% To Your Last Death (2019) Whilst the film has it's share of blood, gore and SAW-style 'games' this is not excessive and the film it more driven by it's plot and characters than the action sequences; the plot even offers a few classic twists and turns that will keep you guessing.‐ Indie Mac User

4/5 100% Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street (2019) As an incredibly personal insight into one mans story the film excels and may leave viewers with food for thought, and perhaps a few new nightmares‐ Indie Mac User

4/5 97% Why Don't You Just Die! (Papa, sdokhni) (2020) Sokolov delivers a film with a strong, unique style and sensibility which will pull you into it's dark world of revenge despite being subtitled; however it does not hold back on it's more bloody and violent scene's so will not be for the faint hearted!‐ Indie Mac User

4/5 75% Film Hawk (2016) It is clear the influence that Hawk has had on many artists and people throughout his storied career; however perhaps more interestingly we get a peek at the more personal story of the man himself...‐ Indie Mac User

4/5 100% Peripheral (2018) Building on the premise of a writer struggling to complete the followup to their debut novel it also acts as a meditation on the writers process, fame and the interference of technology and corporations on our lives. ‐ Indie Mac User

3.5/5 70% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) The plot can at times be confusing but the comic scenes are a delight as the film pokes fun at it-self and genre tropes.‐ Indie Mac User

3.5/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Overall the films pace did derail at times but ultimately is a strong first effort for Marvel's first Female-fronted film and has all the fun and joy we have come to know and love from the MCU. Larson's performance in this film is a high point!‐ Indie Mac User

3.5/5 100% Ekaj (2015) Ekaj is a hyper-realistic slice of real life; we see into the (often tragic) life of a gay street 'hustler' which is a character we don't often seen portrayed as raw as this on screen. ‐ Indie Mac User

3/5 92% Containment (2015) The film is fairly well shot but again doesn't really stand out visually and thriller aspect of this film doesn't really hold up to expectation which is instead pinned on the story and drama. It plays like a taught thriller at times...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

3/5 No Score Yet Blunt Force Trauma (2015) An interesting exploration in to the lives of gun-fighters but not much merit beyond that.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

3/5 No Score Yet The Summer House (2014) The subject matter is certainly controversial but I am not sure if this is merely shock cinema (the sex scenes are very graphic) for the sake of it or if there is a deeper story trying to be told here‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

3/5 No Score Yet Death Kiss (2018) the film by no means excels but if treated (as I feel may have been intended) as an out-and-out B-Movie it delivers everything you would except. The scoring adds a very retro feel though I found it a little overpowering at times. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

3/5 23% The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death (2015) Overall we found this film a worthwhile sequel to the previous film. Although the over use of 'fake' scares seemed distracting at times and became repetitive; taking away from the gripping storyline.‐ Indie Mac User

3/5 78% Long Lost (2019) The plot is in equal parts intriguing, horrifying and revolting ;although ultimately we can guess at the implied danger ahead. All the being said, there is a major shift in the third act that turns the whole film on its head...‐ Indie Mac User

3/5 No Score Yet A Legacy of Whining (2016) Munro is reasonably likeable and entertaining in the lead role but i'm not convinced that alone is enough to carry the film and the dialogue and flow seems a little wooden throughout. ‐ Indie Mac User

3/5 86% Batsh*t Bride (2020) For a low-budget comedy the film is fairly well executed and delivers for what it is; a breezy and fun wedding comedy, whilst not breaking much new ground it is an entertaining watch and fun way to pass some time.‐ Indie Mac User

2.5/5 75% Mansfield 66/67 (2017) Overall it is a creative melting pot that didn't quite come together as a cohesive film for me but is an interesting story non-the-less.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

2.5/5 61% Unfriended (2015) ....It's also hard to re-create the same type of tension as other horror films; much like a badly shot found footage film; we don't see enough to truly horrify us.‐ Indie Mac User

2.5/5 No Score Yet Mandao of the Dead (2018) As a film it offers some interesting ideas but fails to land. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

2/5 No Score Yet Char Man (2019) It does however do a good job of creating it's own mythology for the fictional 'Ojai Vampire' and scarily real 'Char Man'. It's also fun to see the making of the 'movie within a movie' and it even plays with some tropes of genre.‐ Indie Mac User

100% Sonita (2015) An insightful look at the real-life of a refugee struggling against the traditions of her culture.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

89% In Pursuit of Silence (2017) As an art film this is a success but if you are hoping for any form of story telling or structure that is lacking here.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

78% LoveTrue (2016) a very abstract and artistic approach to documentary film-making This is certainly an interesting take but will not be to everyones taste.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2018
No Score Yet Spaghettiman (2016) The film is un-ashamedly indie and un-ashamedly a comedy at it's core but I felt it actually punches well above it's weight when it came to the action sequences and choreography which excels above many B-movies with much larger budgets...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
