[Rating: Swiss Fist] Donnybrook, the dreary and hopeless drama from Tim Sutton, is a brutal and darkly brooding picture that follows a family man’s violent journey to free his family from the doom of a poverty stricken life and an inevitable hopeless existence by fighting and stealing his way to a bareknuckle brawl. It’s a […]

[Rating: Rock Fist Way Down] Okay. I’m over it already. In fact, I was never on board with this hack wannabe slasher franchise. The 2017 original presented a unique gimmick, which, under the right guidance could have been a lot of fun, but ultimately wasn’t nearly explored enough. Thankfully, someone green-lit Happy Death Day 2 […]

[Rating: Minor Rock Fist Up]Steven Soderbergh‘s latest iPhone feature film, High Flying Bird, plays like Jerry Maguire on moprhine, as it goes behind the scenes into the high-tension world of professional basketball owner-player negotiations during a labor dispute. It’s a decent flick, if at times slow, that survives thanks to a decent script and a […]

Skimping on the Hitler and Bigfoot action only to delve into the heart […]

[Rating: Minor Rock Fist Up] The body-horror movie Piercing lives up to its name both figuratively and literally. It opens with one of the most shocking images one could think of—Reed, a father, holding an ice pick above his baby—and it’s a fair warning for what the viewer can expect from there. To fend off […]

[Rating: Solid Rock Fist Up]  Getting it out of the way early, yes indeed The Standoff at Sparrow Creek is similar to the classic film The Usual Suspects. Don’t quote me on that film since it’s been ages, but it’s iconic enough not to compare the two. But it’s certainly a mystery whodunit with a […]

‘Cold War’ is a gorgeously shot, ill-fated yet passionate sweeping romance set against the harsh back drop of 1950s post-war Europe.
