1/5 15% Pokémon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew (1999) The climactic battle is long, repetitious and boring, while the film's anti-violence message is crassly expressed. - Radio Times EDIT

3/5 93% The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) Hammer's film of Nigel Kneale's ground-breaking television serial was a huge success, encouraging the studio to concentrate on the production of horror films - in that regard, it can truly be said to have changed the course of British film history. - Radio Times EDIT

5/5 93% Memento (2000) The mystery requires a lot of concentration, but the stunning final scene is ample reward. Not just an indulgence, the ingenious structure makes the point that memory, although unreliable, is what we depend upon for our sense of reality. - Radio Times EDIT

4/5 89% Taxi zum Klo (Taxi to the Toilet) (1981) Now, post-Aids, the film is a museum piece, but nonetheless enjoyable. Sadly, after making an unsuccessful sequel, Ripploh faded from view. - Radio Times EDIT
