5/5 88% Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys) (1995) " Terry Gilliam's most mature film to date demands rigorous analysis from the viewer. Add to this the director's grotesquely comic hallmarks, and the resulting film is a complex and rewarding fantasy." — BBC
Posted Nov 4, 2002
5/5 99% Metropolis (1927) " Essential viewing." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2002
5/5 98% The Conversation (1974) " The Conversation is an intricate and unsettlingly subtle character study, with a very strong performance from Hackman." — BBC
Posted Mar 4, 2002
5/5 100% Toy Story (1995) " Shot through with an exuberant and enviable sense of its own brilliance, Toy Story will continue to impress long after its technical virtuosity has been upstaged." — BBC
Posted Dec 10, 2001
5/5 100% Toy Story 2 (1999) " Much work has gone into the 'story' as into the 'toy', making this a rewarding return to an indisputable visual treat." — BBC
Posted Dec 10, 2001
3/5 73% For Your Eyes Only (1981) " Director John Glen took care of Bond for most of the 80s, arguably the agent's weakest decade. That said, his debut showed promise in its restraint." — BBC
Posted Sep 11, 2001
3/5 78% Star Trek III - The Search for Spock (1984) " All the old Enterprise personnel carry the film, as it is more concerned with character re-animation than development." — BBC
Posted Sep 11, 2001
4/5 68% Point Break (1991) " The hinted spirituality of the film is plainly silly, but it's quickly swallowed by the undertow of crashing spectacle." — BBC
Posted Sep 10, 2001
4/5 82% GoldenEye (1995) " A bold attempt to reinvent the character itself, one that tied in with the post-cold war era." — BBC
Posted Sep 10, 2001
3/5 51% The World Is Not Enough (1999) " Has all the makings of a classic Bond film plus a more original plot than usual." — BBC
Posted Sep 10, 2001
2/5 62% Moonraker (1979) " Frivolous, yes, but never dull." — BBC
Posted Aug 1, 2001
4/5 85% Thunderball (1965) " In this, the fourth instalment in the series from the original team, you have a classic Bond film that wants for nothing but a trim." — BBC
Posted Jun 27, 2001
4/5 55% Con Air (1997) " It's silly, but it's also free from pretensions to be anything else." — BBC
Posted Jun 12, 2001
4/5 90% The Day of the Jackal (1973) " Zinnemann's tale of an extremist faction's plot to kill the celebrated French leader and the authorities' efforts to capture the mercenary assassin hired for the job achieves a dignified tone and compelling pace seldom seen in latter-day thrillers." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
5/5 88% Brief Encounter (1945) " Less cynical souls will weep buckets." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
4/5 87% Ben-Hur (1959) " Opening with a full overture played against Michelangelo's ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, you know that you're in for something unembarrassed by its own grandiosity." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
4/5 88% Scarface (2003) " This is very much a film of the 80s in its portrayal not of moral decline (there is little declining left to do) but of unstoppable ego-centrism. With guns." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
4/5 90% Rain Man (1988) " The film's greatest achievement is successfully framing the plot around a character incapable of emotional development." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
5/5 100% Battleship Potemkin (1925) " If you are at all interested in the history of cinema, or the influence of 20th century politics on the medium, then this film is a must-see, although over an hour of Soviet propaganda is likely to test the patience of modern viewers." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
3/5 89% Planet of the Apes (1968) " A magnificently indignant Heston ... wrestles with the imponderables of a topsy-turvy world in which apes reign over humankind." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
3/5 92% Parenthood (1989) " Director Ron Howard combines this multi-generational suburban soap almost effortlessly, considering the number of parents or would be parents we're expected to care about." — BBC
Posted Apr 17, 2001
4/5 86% Heat (1995) " Taken altogether, Mann doesn't do anything particularly new, but with a subtly used supporting cast he combines everything into an unusually articulate action thriller." — BBC
