T-Meter Title | Year
24% The River (1984) [The River has] a rousing conclusion, and while the story may be melodramatic, the picture could hardly be more realistic. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

No Score Yet Water (1985) As an attempt at mad-cap political satire, Dick Clement's Water is really surprisingly wet considering it boasts such useful people in the cast. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

29% Edith and Marcel (1983) Fairly factual. I dare say, but rather embarrassing to this spectator. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

93% Amadeus (1984) What starts as an absorbing study of historical characters and situations ends as just another elaborate and over-long Hollywood style costume-piece. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

64% Far From the Madding Crowd (1967) With the emphasis on plot rather than character only Julie Christie finds a part she can turn round in, suggesting convincingly Bathsheba's curious combination of coquetry with integrity. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

100% Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) A high comedy that is enlivened with cynicism, loaded with dramatic irony and shot through with a suspicion of social satire. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 94% Superman (1978) All this makes a highly entertaining, though undemanding mixture, of sci-fi, romance and comedy, which could hardly have come off at all at any lower artistic level, nor without such a happy choice for the central part as Christopher Reeve. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 84% Walkabout (1971) Beautifully done, I think, with a completely appropriate and consistent style. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

97% Ghostbusters (1984 Original) (1984) A fantasy, but with no touches of reality at all, to be enjoyed for its zany humour typical of the "National Lampoon" school from which several of its contributors are drawn. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

85% Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) With the action nonstop there is no time for mere acting, much less for a coherent plot. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

82% Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) The appeal, perhaps, will be strongest to the young. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
