Bleeding Steel (China, 2017)

Bleeding Steel

China | 2017 | D: Leo Zhang

There wouldn’t be a single person on the planet who dislikes Jackie Chan and/or his movies. They’re always fun little, inoffensive romps with the classic good vs bad guy, plenty of stunts and lots of action. But lately, Mr Chan’s output has been a mixed bag. For every “The Foreigner” there is a “Karate Kid”. And Bleeding Steel is definitely in The Karate Kid category.

Wolf Warrior 2

China | 2017 | D: Jing Wu

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if China decided to make their own Rambo film (Rambo 3 or 4, not the first Rambo, don’t be silly)? Well wonder no more – China would like to present to you: Wolf Warrior 2, the supposed sequel to Wolf Warrior.

One Cut of the Dead (Japan, 2017)

One Cut of the Dead

Japan | 2017 | D: Shin'ichirĂ´ Ueda 

I am going to start this write-up by announcing that this is one of the best and most original horror comedy movies you will ever see – but you need to watch it all the way through for the pay off.

I went into this movie blind – only attracted to the thumbnail and the name on the streaming site. Being Japanese, I knew I would be in for one hell of a good ride – I just really wasn’t expecting this.

Slaw (USA, 2016)


USA | 2016 | D: Matt Green

Everyone loves a silly movie every now and then right? Well this could be that silly movie that just stops you from watching more silly movies for a little while!
Plot? Story? Yes there is something there, about two brothers – one who is very large and the other who is very short, who have kidnapped 7 people. What did these people do wrong? They’ve upset/offended the brothers at eating establishments.
