Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
49% King Kong (1976) However much we laughed, I resented the film's tendency to nudge and wink at us.‐ The Spectator

90% Die Marquise von O... (The Marquise of O) (1976) What is unarguable is Rohmer's mastery of the discreetly erotic.‐ The Spectator

92% Pumping Iron (1976) This kind of sweetly numbskull arrogance is cleverly caught by Pumping Iron which depicts Mr Olympia as a beauty, not body, contest.‐ The Spectator

79% The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) It's good clean British fun.‐ The Spectator

100% The Devil's Playground (1976) An outstandingly good Australian import.‐ The Spectator

No Score Yet Nasty Habits (1977) Nasty Habits is both too cute, a radical-chic Going My Way, and too timid.‐ The Spectator

100% The Late Show (1977) The Late Show is the best picture in town, the nicest takeoff on 1940s private eye films since Gumshoe.‐ The Spectator

88% F for Fake (1974) I enjoyed every dubious minute of this bit of hanky-panky.‐ The Spectator

88% The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Nauseated and shaken, I walked out of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre after half an hour of its butchery.‐ The Spectator

93% Carrie (1976) Carrie won't add much to your life -- but it will scare you, not least about your friends and neighbours.‐ The Spectator

30% Two Minute Warning (1976) In applauding the military tactics of the SWAT anti-terrorist squad, the picture justifies a kind of war psychology for civilians.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2015
No Score Yet Sweeney! (1977) Thaw, and Joe Melia as an East End crook, do their best but are knee-capped by a witless script.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2015
70% Effi Briest (Fontane Effi Briest) (1977) It's so visually boring, insanely talkative, arrogantly formalistic.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2015
17% Viva Knievel! (1977) If you're into a giggle Viva Knievel! may appall but I don't think will bore you.‐ The Spectator

83% The Devil Probably (Le diable probablement) (1977) Despite Bresson's characteristic evenness of tone and technical curtness -- his trademark is an almost contemptuous dismissal of flashiness -- I felt involved and moved by his pessimistic picture of four young French students.‐ The Spectator

93% Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) It is competently if not brilliantly mounted, moderately exciting and charmingly capable of poking fun at itself... It's a lot less patronising than most Disney films and toweringly better than the other blockbusters around at the moment.‐ The Spectator

96% Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) Obviously [Spielberg] had a ball with Close Encounters, and his pleasure in tinkertoying it together makes it enjoyable, mildly funny and -- in one sequence -- even credible.‐ The Spectator

100% Spite Marriage (1929) There's still enough inspired joy in this old film to make most current comedies look feebly unoriginal.‐ The Spectator

81% Silent Movie (1976) What disconcerts me about Mr Brooks is his obviousness, the lack of any true surprise in his gags.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2015
No Score Yet Norman...Is That You? (1976) Rather sweet. And funny.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2015
91% Network (1976) Network is neither fair nor modest. It's full of bile, travesty, scolding -- and wry humour.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2015
44% Brother Sun, Sister Moon (Fratello sole, sorella luna) (1972) Extraordinarily, Zeffirelli has made a beautiful and simple film.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2015
No Score Yet Faustine et le bel été (Faustine and the Beautiful Summer) (1972) Well-directed and quite perceptive.‐ The Spectator
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2015
71% Black Sunday (1977) John Frankenheimer's Black Sunday did not convince or move me, even in its occasional tense moments.‐ The Spectator

97% Annie Hall (1977) I think It's his best picture so far, and I hope that audiences will enjoy his drily aggressive, despairingly narcissistic humour as much as I did.‐ The Spectator
