3/5 81% Private Benjamin (1980) It's basically a one-joke effort, but that joke has Hawn throwing herself with great gusto into the role of a bewildered spoilt brat who comes good and her Oscar-nominated performance has huge charm.‐ Radio Times

4/5 86% The Spiral Staircase (1946) Thought-provoking and disturbing, this masterly thriller is directed with touches of sheer genius by Robert Siodmak.‐ Radio Times

2/5 32% Grease 2 (1982) It doesn't work, but you could spend the time spotting relatives of the stars.‐ Radio Times

2/5 57% Plenty (1985) Everything is spelt out laboriously with a glum and squeakily pretentious air.‐ Radio Times

2/5 37% Fletch Lives (1989) The plot, such as it is, doesn't so much revolve around Chase in a variety of ill-fitting disguises, as spin mercilessly out of control.‐ Radio Times

4/5 91% Network (1976) Criticised by some at the time for a certain naivety and lack of subtlety, this remains one of the most devastating condemnations of the media's urge to exploit.‐ Radio Times

3/5 35% The Woman in Red (1984) Wilder is at his frantic best, ably supported by the likes of real-life wife Gilda Radner and Midnight Run's Charles Grodin.‐ Radio Times

4/5 96% Places in the Heart (1984) A beautifully paced and sumptuously shot heart-twanger that won Sally Field a richly deserved best actress Oscar.‐ Radio Times

1/5 15% Howard the Duck (1986) Marvel Comics meets George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic, and an uneasy, bland alliance it is, too.‐ Radio Times

3/5 80% Pretty in Pink (1986) It belts along pleasingly enough, but this frenetic, hard-edged comedy drama is too hackneyed to be entirely successful.‐ Radio Times

2/5 34% She's Having a Baby (1988) Director John Hughes tries his best to give everything a sparky, pacey feel, but the end result is simply just not funny enough.‐ Radio Times

1/5 7% Problem Child 2 (1991) A cinematic disaster zone.‐ Radio Times

1/5 4% Problem Child (1990) There is something offensive about using an unloved and rebellious child as the butt of bad jokes in this way.‐ Radio Times

5/5 94% 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) It's a must-see if you never have, even though its visual impact is seriously hampered by the small screen.‐ Radio Times

4/5 94% In the Name of the Father (1993) This is a stirring and exceptionally well acted, though controversial, dramatisation of Gerry Conlon's book about the grave miscarriage of justice suffered by the Guildford Four.‐ Radio Times

3/5 59% Cavalcade (1933) Critics at the time loved this rather sanctimonious jaunt through history. Seen from the vantage point of post-Second World War egalitarianism, however, it all appears quaint and riddled with accepted class differences.‐ Radio Times

4/5 90% Ordinary People (1980) This is still an auspicious directorial debut that stands as one of the first films to deal intelligently with the role of therapy.‐ Radio Times

4/5 56% Out of Africa (1985) What the movie loses in emotional realism, it gains in sheer epic audacity.‐ Radio Times

4/5 89% A Christmas Story (1983) This witty, insightful, hugely enjoyable movie is riven with glorious home truths and a merciful lack of saccharin.‐ Radio Times

4/5 86% Presumed Innocent (1990) This could have been a great movie, but, despite being a darn good yarn well told, the essential magic is somehow missing.‐ Radio Times

3/5 81% An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) Not even the combined talents of Debra Winger and an Oscar-winning Louis Gossett Jr can turn this one into a great movie, but if you're in the mood for a wallow, it's perfect.‐ Radio Times

4/5 91% No Way Out (1987) This is a major treat.‐ Radio Times

4/5 63% The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (1992) This is pure unbridled hokum, of course, but extremely effective until the last 30 minutes, when the plot rapidly self-destructs.‐ Radio Times

5/5 100% My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) This seminal 1980s movie launched a plethora of now distinguished careers, including those of director Stephen Frears and Daniel Day-Lewis.‐ Radio Times
