- Breaker Upperers, The (2018)
- Enjoyable sex–positive NZ comedy.
$29.95 $20, $29.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
- T2 Trainspotting (2017)
- Has some effective moments, but feels like a pointless sequel overall.
- DVD $19.95
- Get Out (2017)
- Very satisfying horror.
- DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95
- Never Dead, The (Phantasm) (1979)
- Some scary moments due to the spooky score and to Angus Scrim's character.
- Nobody Knows (Dare mo shiranai) (2004)
$20 $15, $29.95 $22.45
- Death Proof (2007)
- Tarantino tries desperately hard to make a cult movie in the vein of American International Cinema, but winds up with a clunky bore fest. Totally unsexy too. The only enjoyable aspect is Zoe Bell\'s New Zealand accent.
- Inglourious Basterds (Inglorious Bastards) (2009)
- Pointless and pretentious, and proof for those who think Tarantino has been a waste of time since Jackie Brown.
$15 $7.50, $24.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
- Wolf Creek (2005)
- Annoyingly stupid victims undermine the effectiveness somewhat but otherwise the nasty horror elements are in tact. Those who enjoy movies such as Hostel and Eden Lake will enjoy it.
- DVD $34.95
- Eden Lake (2008)
- A nasty piece of work that is very effectively done.
- DVD $29.95
- Escape from Alcatraz (1979)
- As always, the Siegel/Eastwood combination delivers the goods in this well directed, well paced prison escape movie.
