4/5 91% 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 EDIT

3/5 58% 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 EDIT

4/5 81% Looking for Richard (1996) Pacino has made an informative, engrossing and hugely enjoyable movie that stands as a work of pure entertainment, almost as powerful as its inspiration. - Empire Magazine EDIT

3/5 53% 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 EDIT

4/5 63% 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 EDIT
