3/5 38% But I'm a Cheerleader (2000) It's hard to decide whether this is funny, offensive, satirical or all three. - Sky Cinema EDIT

1/5 42% Reefer Madness (Tell Your Children) (Doped Youth) (1936) This gloriously awful film is highly recommended to lovers of stunningly bad movies. - Sky Cinema EDIT

3/5 44% Jennifer's Body (2009) Juno scriptwriter Diablo Cody puts her poison pen to work in a slippery comic horror that unfolds like a gutted high-schooler's intestines. - Sky Cinema EDIT

4/5 48% Zardoz (1974) Whatever your verdict, you'll agree that Sean Connery compels attention... - Sky Cinema EDIT

3/5 27% Over the Top (1987) The film is on the long side for its story, as it's basically an unassuming little tug-of-love tale. But you'll be cheering for Sly on both custody and arm-wrestling fronts at the artfully-staged finale. - Sky Cinema EDIT

3/5 31% Hocus Pocus (1993) Former choreographer Kenny Ortega directs with the sort of tempo that made him a perfect fit for the High School Musicals. - Sky Cinema EDIT

3/5 31% I Come in Peace (1990) The result is what you might call a blast. - Sky Cinema EDIT

3/5 45% The Watcher in the Woods (1981) This being an early Eighties Disney film, there aren't too many headless corpses lurking in the house and surrounding woods, but there are still some genuine shivers. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
4/5 38% Road House (1989) Girls, guns and good, old-fashioned fisticuffs - missing this is like a smack in the chops. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
4/5 44% Teen Wolf (1985) The tail, sorry, tale, climaxes with a very well choreographed basketball game as the ghoul-in-school fights to go straight and avoid a lifetime of biting the mailman and dodging silver bullets. - Sky Cinema EDIT

4/5 43% Hello, Dolly! (1969) [Barbra Streisand] was really too young for the role... But she was certainly in fine voice, making more of the songs by Jerry Herman than did Herman himself. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
4/5 38% Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1970) With themes and action relevant to the 20th century and beyond, this worthy sequel continues author Pierre Boulle's tale in suitably dark and thrilling fashion. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
4/5 39% Bloodsport (1988) Gripping kick-box bouts and an eye-watering training routine made this a crunching calling card from the Belgian bruiser. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
2/5 36% Legend (1985) The sets, makeup and photography in Ridley Scott's contribution to the fantasy cycle are awesome, but the dialogue and acting are more fitted to the pantomime stage. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
3/5 21% Harlem Nights (1989) Murphy wrote and directed this period piece which doesn't hold back on the strong language and profanity... but to humorous effect. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
2/5 37% Every Which Way But Loose (1978) The story and the characters are really too silly even by the standards of this kind of romp, and the film's disparate elements hardly ever begin to gel. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
3/5 35% Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) Somewhere between Prom Night and Dracula, without any real sense of menace, comes this vampire comedy. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
3/5 50% The Lord of the Rings (1978) [W]e should be grateful that Bakshi has tried so hard to be faithful to the original that its spirit and inspiration often shine through to stir the blood. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
2/5 7% Orca - The Killer Whale (1977) Those expecting real quality had better look elsewhere, but fans of enjoyably bad movies will find plenty to relish, not least lady-in-peril Bo Derek. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
3/5 44% The Wiz (1978) The Wiz can't quite get it together. Nonetheless, this trip up the yellow-brick road has something to please almost everyone. - Sky Cinema EDIT

3/5 26% Hook (1991) Bob Hoskins hops aboard as Hook's hapless mate Smee while Julia Roberts sprinkles fairydust as the mischievous Tink. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2019
3/5 41% Young Guns (1988) There's some tough action sequences and a personable cast - including cameos from Tom Cruise and Brooke Shields - in a movie that (almost) kick-started a fading genre. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2019
2/5 31% Tango & Cash (1989) Despite imaginative sets and bursts of action -- the prison scenes are particularly vividly staged -- this is a fitfully boring film with perished elastic in its would-be whiplash dialogue. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2019
3/5 54% Cruel Intentions (1999) It's great to see the stars relishing their unusual casting. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
3/5 27% The Amityville Horror (1979) [A] goose-pimply haunted house yarn. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
3/5 19% Mannequin (1987) Extremely well performed, scripted, edited and directed, this department store romp offers you a real bargain and doesn't waste a second in telling its tall story. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2019
4/5 100% Shanghai Express (1932) It's one of Dietrich's and [von Sternberg's] finest, a kind of Grand Hotel on wheels. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
3/5 44% Twins (1988) It doesn't take a genius to see how the caper might evolve with Arnie as the perfect specimen and Danny as the scheming lowlife, but everyone has fun turning the concept into a naughtier version of The Prince And The Pauper. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2019
2/5 29% Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) Gory with a hint of humour, this pretty much does what it says on the tin. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2019
2/5 40% A Chorus Line (1985) Attenborough takes the show that set the stage alight and, in this curiously flat version, dampens its spirit. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2019
1/5 36% A Star is Born (1976) Too often director Frank Pierson appears to be allowing his players to act the scene as they think fit rather than under his guidance. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
3/5 54% Police Academy (1984) A big hoot for adolescents of all ages. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
3/5 46% Three Amigos! (1986) Chevy Chase, Steve Martin and Martin Short kept the saddles of comedy blazing with this wonderfully daft western. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2019
2/5 37% Grease 2 (1982) The original was a hard act to follow but this energetic sequel floats on a raft of ditties from the likes of Tab Hunter and Connie Stevens. That said, the questionable 'Reproduction' has to be heard to be believed. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2019
4/5 60% Out of Africa (1985) Engagingly played, swoonsomely shot, and a bit breathy... perfect stuff for a Sunday night. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
89% Rain Man (1988) [A] poignant and involving comedy drama. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
5/5 82% Dances With Wolves (1990) [Dances With Wolves] packed with action, emotion, romance, laughter and an insight into a half-lost culture, is one heck of a beautiful movie. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
5/5 96% My Fair Lady (1964) It's such a classic story that stiffness in the staging and direction really doesn't matter. Rex Harrison's booming star power and Audrey Hepburn's adorable face propel things along well next to the fantastic score. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
5/5 82% Oliver! (1968) With all these wonderful songs and vigorous playing from the top-notch cast, it's a national treasure. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
5/5 90% Midnight Cowboy (1969) John Schlesinger presents a particularly un-pretty picture of the New York underworld as Voight's American dream shatters into a thousand psychedelic pieces. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
3/5 84% The English Patient (1996) Its performances are finely crafted with loving care. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
5/5 91% Million Dollar Baby (2004) Turning the conventions of the boxing movie inside out, this sees Eastwood - as actor and director - at the top of his game. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
4/5 85% Chicago (2002) This jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, heart-stopping film version of the spectacular Fosse stage show takes all the best bits from the musical and enhances every scene. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
5/5 94% Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) Its highlight, of course, is Charles Laughton's rigid and inhuman Captain Bligh, ruthless in his treatment of the seamen. Remembered, imitated, caricatured, but never bettered, it stays indelibly in the mind long after the film is over. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2019
3/5 93% Wings (1927) The Academy Award-winning flying sequences still hold their own against today's CGI. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2019
3/5 80% Overlord (2018) Those happy to embrace the silliness can expect a steady supply of pulpy, B-movie fun coupled with moments of effectively nasty blood-and-guts body horror. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2019
4/5 91% Ordinary People (1980) Mary Tyler Moore also excels as the cold-hearted mother -- a role very much against type. - Sky Cinema EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2019
5/5 77% Braveheart (1995) The battle scenes are certainly spectacular affairs and Gibson displays a masterful control of scenes involving thousands of extras. - Sky Cinema EDIT
