Waiting for Guffman (1996)

"The songs (co-written by Guest and Tapster Harry Shearer) are suitably ridiculous and the deadpan gags come thick, fast and too numerous to mention, all delivered with knuckle-gnawing subtlety by the C-list cast with A-list style." ‐ Empire Magazine

"Fun for kids, but, despite some adult references, appeal for the over 10s is limited." ‐ Empire Magazine

Shutter (2004)

"If some of the shocks come off feeling as dated as last summer's Polaroids, it's a small price to play for a picture that manages to be scary and unsettling without resorting to cheap thrills and gore." ‐ Total Film

The Cable Guy (1996)

"The mix of light comedy and really quite dark themes proved too much for many viewers, but this is worth a look for Broderick's performance and Carrey's obsessive touches." ‐ Empire Magazine

Contact (1997)

"Less sci-fi blockbuster, more spiritual thinkpiece, this is a Close Encounters Of The Third Kind for the X-Files generation." ‐ Empire Magazine

The Ghost and the Darkness (1996)

"This should have been Jaws meets Alien meets Out Of Africa. But instead ends up being a far more tepid version of all three." ‐ Empire Magazine
