MOVIE OF THE MONTH

Uzumasa Limelight

Uzumasa Limelight
(8/10) review by Steven Hampton

Although it is billed as a homage to Charlie Chaplin's Limelight (1952), this Japanese drama about stuntmen in samurai action emerges from the shadowy levels of tribute pictures and presents us with a strong characterful storyline of matching quality and equal worthiness to its thematic inspiration.

Dragon Blade

Dragon Blade
(4/10) review by J.C. Hartley

The genre mash-up; dinosaurs and cowboys in The Valley Of Gwangi (1969), cowboys and aliens in Cowboys And Aliens (2011), strippers and zombies in... well, you get the picture. Dragon Blade pitches in-fighting Roman legions, at the time of the Great Roman Civil War, with Han dynasty border patrols protecting the Silk Road.


CLASSIC TELEVISION

Doomwatch

Doomwatch
(9/10) review by J.C. Hartley

It started with the rats. Only it didn't, it started with The Plastic Eaters, in which a virus does just that. When I saw the trailers for this, in 1970, I hoped that the series was going to be a straightforward popular science fiction show. I would be 12 at the time, and a big fan of Doctor Who and Star Trek.

Hired To Kill

Hired To Kill
(6/10) review by Ian Shutter

Long before Christopher Ray's Mercenaries (2014) - an imitative movie that almost revived the careers of Brigitte Nielsen and Cynthia Rothrock, and tried hard to beat Sylvester Stallone's vanity ensemble franchise The Expendables at their own game - Hired To Kill was also a formidable mash-up of British movie Wild Geese (1978), and German exploitation flick Jungle Warriors (1984).
