Empire of the Sun (1987)

"Now considered a trial run for the more moving, horrifying and involving Schindler's List, Steven Spielberg's drama, set in China during the Second World War, is a glossy and rather tame affair." ‐Radio Times

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)

"It's an interesting tale with all the classic elements of the genre, and the affair is given added weight by the solid performances of Beatty and Christie." ‐Radio Times

How to Make an American Quilt (1995)

"Some of the episodic tales work better than others, but all are interesting and there are splendid characterisations from both young and more senior members of the cast." ‐Radio Times

Skyfall (2012)

"A memorable, deliciously twisted villain (Javier Bardem), a damaged yet still cool James Bond (Daniel Craig), and a centre-stage plot for the spy chief M (Judi Dench), all add up to the best Bond movie of recent years." ‐The National (UAE)

Red Sonja (1985)

"This is a sword-and-sorcery adventure for those who like their action fast and furious, their dialogue ropey and their acting filled with more ham than a butcher's shop." ‐Radio Times

Arthur 2: On the Rocks (1988)

"Believe it or not, things get even worse as the film moves towards its predictable happy ending. You have been warned." ‐Radio Times

The Concorde... Airport '79 (1979)

"It's very silly, but the starry cast (Robert Wagner, Sylvia Kristel, Eddie Albert) manages to be as over-the-top as the effects, making this a fun if incredibly mindless way to spend a couple of hours." ‐Radio Times

Frances (1982)

"Jessica Lange is mesmerising in this uneven biopic of the spirited, politically outspoken 1930s actress Frances Farmer." ‐Radio Times

Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991)

"A textbook example of a disaster that amazingly manages not only to contain bad acting and an appalling script, but also some of the most unconvincing love scenes ever committed to film." ‐Radio Times

Bless the Child (2000)

"It's all utter nonsense, but entertaining in a daft sort of way, though Christina Ricci is shamefully wasted in an irrelevent supporting role." ‐Radio Times

Man Trouble (1992)

"Proof that even the most talented actors - in this case, Jack Nicholson and Ellen Barkin -- can make bad choices and turn in mediocre performances in a below-par film." ‐Radio Times

Fathers' Day (1997)

"This had the potential to be hilarious, but instead falls alarmingly flat thanks to a weak and jokeless script that even the combined comedic talents of Williams and Crystal can't perk up." ‐Radio Times

Rude Awakening (1989)

'Til There Was You (1997)

"The woeful miscasting of Jeanne Tripplehorn sabotages this romantic comedy about two people who are destined to meet but who contrive to keep missing each other." ‐Radio Times

Folks! (1992)

"Senility and attempted suicide are used to supposed comic effect as Selleck wanders around in various states of disarray, probably wondering what on earth he did to end up in this dreadful film." ‐Radio Times

Jerry Maguire (1996)
