3/5 72% The Fifth Element (1997) Bruce Willis is good in an average role, Milla Jovovich is acceptable in a terrible role, but as ever Gary Oldman is terrific in how he seems to find just the right note for the film and threatens to take it over.‐ BBC.com

3/5 83% Chariots of Fire (1981) Now, 20 years later, it's dated. In some ways that actually benefits the film as its true age somehow helps its 1920s setting but other aspects suffer.‐ BBC.com
