Minority Report (2002)

"If less poetic than AI, Minority Report is much more confidently directed, with a firmer sense of its maker's own urge to entertain and stimulate rather than bemuse." ‐London Evening Standard

Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

"It has an epic hero whom it doesn't hero-worship...[O'Toole] brings flawlessly to life the film's vision of a flawed warrior who is corrupted by pride, soured by empty victories and betrayed finally by the jubilant jump of his heart every time he kills." ‐London Evening Standard

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

"What our nightmares have accustomed us to see in dreams, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange shows us in broad daylight. It is one of the most unsettling films in the whole of cinema." ‐London Evening Standard

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

"I shall go and see it again as soon as possible, for one thing is clear. Man has shrunk space, but Kubrick has expanded the cinema." ‐London Evening Standard

Pulp Fiction (1994)

"Though Pulp Fiction is only Tarantino's second film as writer-director, he creates his own world as confidently and recognisably as Harold Pinter or Joe Orton does or did." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 16, 2016

Blade II (2002)

"It is directed by Guillermo del Toro: by "directed" I simply mean he turned his camerawork over to the computer graphics surgeons who cut, slice, dice and vivisect the material to mount a gross eyeassault of CG sequences." ‐London Evening Standard

Spider-Man (2002)

"It's the unexpectedness of finding a genuine couple of young lovers caught in its web that turns spectacle into sympathy and restores life-size emotion to outside imagination." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 7, 2015

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

"My heart still soars as Elliott goes airborne and pedals across the face of an impossibly full harvest moon on his bike." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 19, 2015

Shrek (2001)

"Shrek is alive, and with dark, sly and absolutely hilarious irreverence lampooning every once-sacred characteristic of the nursery kingdom. Shrek is a subversive joy.." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 9, 2015

Battlefield Earth (2000)

"Appalling." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 3, 2015

Chicago (2002)

"It's a totally unexpected film, and all the more welcome -- a modern reproduction that resurrects the spirit, look and sound of a great era of Hollywood professionalism." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 25, 2015

Gladiator (2000)

"In Russell Crowe, Scott has found an actor who can carry this movie the way Atlas was supposed to carry the globe of the world on his back -- in Crowe's case without stooping." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 22, 2015

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

"What an eyeful it is. This is probably the greatest battlepiece composed for the screen since Eisenstein's Ivan the Terrible." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Nov 12, 2014

The Royal Tenenbaums (2002)

"The Tenenbaums's self-referential outlook, wayward agendas, wanton destructiveness and wishful fantasy make for a highly entertaining spectacle, provided you acknowledge you're watching a churning status quo that will never alter in essentials." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Oct 1, 2014

Bless the Child (2000)

"I don't know if I'm getting more squeamish, or simply less charitable at being exploitatively manipulated and taken for a moron: possibly both. But I think others will share my disgust at several scenes in Bless The Child." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 22, 2014

A Beautiful Mind (2001)

"A Beautiful Mind is not an insult to the intelligence, not quite. But it makes every effort to celebrate that uncommon faculty and at the same time play it down to the lowest common level." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 4, 2014

Popiól i diament (Ashes and Diamonds) (1958)

"When you watch Ashes And Diamonds, remember, you're not just seeing a film: you're looking at a manifesto that has found a voice and a face and speaks for a whole deceived generation." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Mar 26, 2013

Fah talai jone (Tears of the Black Tiger) (2007)

"An oddity, all right: you may find it of interest once. I doubt if you'll want to see its like again." Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Dec 15, 2003

About a Boy (2002)

"Fans of the old rakishly seductive womaniser may have their allegiance strained... But I think [Grant] passes the test triumphantly. " ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Dec 15, 2003

Code Unknown (Code inconnu: Récit incomplet de divers voyages) (2000)

"The emotional landscape is observed with detachment; you have to connect the almost hidden dots to empathise with the characters or form the message, and it's hard." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Dec 15, 2003

La Bête (The Beast) (2014)

"La Bête at its best resembles Renoir crossed with Bunuel. At its worst it's like any pay-on-demand porn video available to clients in their hotel rooms." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Dec 15, 2003

The Ring (2002)

"This dud by director Gore Verbinski is being marketed as if it were the scariest thing since The Blair Witch Project. The only shock is how incomprehensible it all is." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 22, 2003

Dirty Pretty Things (2003)

"Here at last is a movie with a social heartbeat that pumps new blood into our anaemic cinema." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Dec 16, 2002

28 Days Later (2003)

"There is not an earthly glimmer of an original idea in the whole film." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Nov 6, 2002

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

"The trouble is, much the same sort of battle-scene repeats itself every 20 minutes or so; only the environments and the monsters inhabiting them are changed. Technically wonderful? Yes, but oh so monotonous!" ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Dec 10, 2001

The Million Dollar Hotel (2000)

"A film that feels, sounds and looks like a back number." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 7, 2001

Arlington Road (1999)

"The film's at its best before the convoluted plot kicks in, as neighbourliness gives way to suspiciousness and the men test each other's credentials." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Billy Elliot (2000)

"Immensely moving." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Fight Club (1999)

"The movie is not only anti-capitalism but anti-society, and, indeed, anti-God." ‐London Evening Standard
