Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
53% Jabberwocky (1977) Nothing builds into full-blooded absurdity, and the enormous cast of British comic specialists is given little opportunity to help out (though they were presumably recruited just for that purpose).‐ Monthly Film Bulletin

56% Miracle on 34th Street (1994) The sanitised setting may generate a Yuletide glow, but it gives a hollow, even cynical ring to the film's championship of faith, hope and charity, sweetness and light.‐ Times (UK)

100% Pinocchio (1940) Probably shows Disney's virtues and vices more clearly than any other cartoon.‐ Time Out

86% The Jungle Book (1967) It's also got great knockabout visual gags, mercifully little cutey-poo sentiment, and reasonable songs.‐ Time Out

33% Under the Cherry Moon (1986) Shot in black-and-white in an attempt to evoke the sophisticated burr of '40s films, its intent is hamstrung by over-familiar gags, though the script comes more to life when Prince and Benton lapse into black street talk.‐ Time Out

77% Gigi (1958) It's like a meal consisting of cheesecake, and one quickly longs for something solid and vulgar to weigh things down.‐ Time Out

83% Lethal Weapon (1987) In this classy all-action thriller, Mel Gibson oozes charm the way his victims ooze blood.‐ Time Out

100% The Kid (1921) As always, Chaplin's opulent Victorian sentimentality is made palatable both by the amazing grace of his pantomimic skills and the balancing presence of harsh reality.‐ Time Out

55% Jamaica Inn (1939) The result is weird, but not wonderful.‐ Time Out

96% The Thief of Bagdad (1924) Korda's version of 1940 has the quirks and the luscious colour, but this one has the electric energy.‐ Time Out

96% The 39 Steps (1935) Great fun.‐ Time Out

89% Queen Christina (1933) [Garbo] turns her character into a living entity, extracts real emotion from the script's purple clumps, and glides through Mamoulian's winding camera movements with grace, wit and beauty.‐ Time Out

97% Ninotchka (1939) It's still consistently amusing, and Garbo throws herself into the fray with engaging vigour.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
100% The Baker's Wife (La Femme du boulanger) (1938) Flagrantly unfashionable, but bursting with bucolic vigour and sly satirical wit.‐ Time Out
