Oliver! (1968)
A classic musical with beautiful backdrops. If you haven't seen it you should ask why not. If you have you should be asking for some more please.

One of my all time favourite films - fantastic story, great animation and a title track from David Bowie. What more could you want?

A surprisingly good night out. May not meet the expectations of die hard fans of either franchise - still action packed - and if you can overlook the acting - a fun film.

Skin Deep (1989)
Hasn't aged well, but for its time it was risque, inredibly well written and executed

Jaws 2 (1978)
Decent sequel in spite of itself. Should have stopped with this one though

Not many seemed to like this one, but I loved the dark undertones. Quirky, funny and new. Worth a look

The first film was tolerable - this devolves into a Porkys wannabe.

Strangely riveting film. Like a Ghost House at a fun fair this film is silly but great fun

Also known as Perdita Durango, this one'll blow your socks off. It's the Mexican Pulp Fiction, but darker and more powerful. Also severe indictment of US/Mexican relations. Don't miss this one

Hellraiser (1987)
Transatlantic dubbing and poor acting ruin what should have been an absolute masterpiece of modern horror. You can't take away Clive Barker's originality away though.

Gorky Park (1983)
Brooding thriller, but overly long and lacking pace

Thunderball (1965)
Always well done, but with any James Bond film it depends on if you buy into the franchise. If you do it's great, but if not it's fairly average

Labyrinth (1986)
The acting is stilted at times, but between Henson's magical world and Bowie's haunting tracks you won't care.

Cult classic - if you haven't yet seen it you should be asking serious questions about where you've been for the last two decades

Rocky V (1990)
The magic wore thin in the previous sequel, it's all but gone in part five, still that doesn't stop you rooting for the big lug

Genre crossover film, but tries too hard to incorporate too many ideas - entertaining though
