Retrospective Reviews

‘Blade Runner’ at 40 – Review - 40 years removed from the release of Ridley Scott's Philip K. Dick adaptation, starring Harrison Ford, 'Blade Runner' (1982) has lost none of its potency. Review by Kieran Judge.
‘Minority Report’ at 20 – Review - Twenty years on from the release of Steven Spielberg sci-fi 'Minority Report', starring Tom Cruise, it remains one of the great contemplative mysteries on film. Review by Sam Sewell-Peterson.
‘Hercules’ at 25 – Review - The Disney Renaissance offered a number of animated feature film classics, but can 'Hercules' be considered one? Danny DeVito and company offer their voices. Sam Sewell-Peterson reviews.
Ex Machina (2014) Review - Alex Garland's directorial debut 'Ex Machina' (2014) is a film that becomes richer and more enthralling upon multiple viewings and through intense debate. Review by Sam Sewell-Peterson.
Dobermann (1997) Review - Jan Kounen's 'Dobermann' (1997), starring Vincent Cassel, marks 25 years on the big screen. It is 'enjoyable with vulgar stylings' worthy of the international cult spotlight. Review by Jacob Davis.
Doctor Strange (2016) Review - Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Dr Stephen Strange in Scott Derrickson's Marvel Cinematic Universe offering 'Doctor Strange' (2016), an eye-popping MCU entry. Sam Sewell-Peterson reviews.
‘Jason X’ at 20 – Review - Twenty years on from the release of the tenth 'Friday the 13th' movie, 'Jason X', this shameless space slasher should at least be saluted for playing into its tropes. Kieran Judge reviews.
‘The Cabin in the Woods’ at 10 – Review - 10 years on from the UK release of 'The Cabin in the Woods' (2011/12), Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon's self-aware horror doesn't hit like it used to. Review by Sam Sewell-Peterson.
