Never Let Me Go (2010) James O'Ehley The movie may be too understated for its own good ultimately . . . EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2011
The Last Airbender (2010) James O'Ehley An amateurish mess. EDIT
Posted Jan 18, 2011
Coraline (2009) James O'Ehley Unfortunately Coraline is one of those movies that one thought one would have liked more . . . EDIT
Posted May 7, 2009
Curse of the Golden Flower (2006) James O'Ehley Spectacular production designs and giant CGI battles can't really disguise a soap opera plot and often hammy acting. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2007
5/5 The Crucible (1996) Andrew Burden Powerful adaptation of a classic play EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2004
4/5 The Clearing (2004) Andrew Burden Kidnap dramas are nothing new and this one certainly isn't original, but director Pieter Jan Brugge compensates with a stylish approach. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2004
2/5 Exorcist: The Beginning (2004) Andrew Burden Pre-production wranglings shouldn’t affect the final product, but in this case you can’t help wondering if they did. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2004
3/5 Crawlspace (1986) Andrew Burden Chilling, but meandering EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
5/5 Oliver! (1968) Andrew Burden 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. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
5/5 When the Wind Blows (1986) Andrew Burden One of my all time favourite films - fantastic story, great animation and a title track from David Bowie. What more could you want? EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
3/5 Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) Andrew Burden Lovely mythology watered down slightly. Still great visuals and as always fantastic action EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
4/5 The Cannonball Run (1981) Andrew Burden You can't criticise this - it's an institution! EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
4/5 Ghost (1990) Andrew Burden Despite cynicism I enjoyed it. There I've admitted it EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
3/5 Porky's (1981) Andrew Burden Crude, but funny film that set a tough standard for similar comedies in the States EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
0/5 Jaws the Revenge (1987) Andrew Burden It's worse than awful EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
4/5 Shirley Valentine (1989) Andrew Burden Wonderful benchmark for British comedies EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
0/5 Stepfather II (1989) Andrew Burden No - let fairly decent first time thrillers lie EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
2/5 Who's That Girl? (1987) Andrew Burden Not even as a vehicle for a great performer EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
3/5 Boxing Helena (1993) Andrew Burden Great premise but daughter tries unsuccessfully to outweird her father EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
3/5 Alien vs. Predator (2004) Andrew Burden 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. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2004
3/5 Skin Deep (1989) Andrew Burden Hasn't aged well, but for its time it was risque, inredibly well written and executed EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 Jaws 2 (1978) Andrew Burden Decent sequel in spite of itself. Should have stopped with this one though EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 The Cable Guy (1996) Andrew Burden Not many seemed to like this one, but I loved the dark undertones. Quirky, funny and new. Worth a look EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
2/5 Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1987) Andrew Burden The first film was tolerable - this devolves into a Porkys wannabe. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 House (1985) Andrew Burden Strangely riveting film. Like a Ghost House at a fun fair this film is silly but great fun EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 Perdita Durango (1997) Andrew Burden 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 EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
2/5 Batteries not Included (1987) Andrew Burden Even if the batteries were included this wouldn't work EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
2/5 Three Men and a Little Lady (1990) Andrew Burden First one was cute, this is simply tired EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 Hellraiser (1987) Andrew Burden 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. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 Gorky Park (1983) Andrew Burden Brooding thriller, but overly long and lacking pace EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 Thunderball (1965) Andrew Burden 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 EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 The Towering Inferno (1974) Andrew Burden They don't make disaster movies like this anymore EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
1/5 Universal Soldier (1992) Andrew Burden Universally bad - but great idea EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 Labyrinth (1986) Andrew Burden The acting is stilted at times, but between Henson's magical world and Bowie's haunting tracks you won't care. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 Withnail and I (1987) Andrew Burden 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 EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
2/5 License to Drive (1988) Andrew Burden They tested our patience with the 80's comedy a little too much with this one EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 About Last Night ... (1986) Andrew Burden Brat pack comedy one step up the ladder. Entertaining and touching. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 Misery (1990) Andrew Burden Kathy Bates is the scariest thing about this film - and it's enough - fantastic film EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 Edward Scissorhands (1990) Andrew Burden Another eccentric, hauntingly beautiful film from the master of fantasy EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 On the Waterfront (1954) Andrew Burden Classic in every way, but without Brando the film would lack the rquired punch (no pun intended) EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 Heartbreak Ridge (1986) Andrew Burden Has so much potential, but doesn't quite get there EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 Blood Simple (1984) Andrew Burden The beginning of an awesome legacy. They start as they mean to continue.It's fresh, it's original and absolutely compelling EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 A Few Good Men (1992) Andrew Burden Powerful performances drive this film, in spite of Tom Cruise EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
5/5 And Now for Something Completely Different (1972) Andrew Burden You either love them or hate them, but this is one of the finest collections of sketches by the team. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
1/5 Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) Andrew Burden Nah EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 Romeo and Juliet (1968) Andrew Burden Powerful interpretation - still a yardstick for this tale EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
4/5 Hanky Panky (1982) Andrew Burden Brilliant, timing is precise and Wilder is at his best EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 The Woman in Red (1984) Andrew Burden Not his best comedy, but the film again proves Wilder is something special EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
2/5 Rocky V (1990) Andrew Burden 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 EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2004
3/5 Big Trouble in Little China (1986) Andrew Burden Genre crossover film, but tries too hard to incorporate too many ideas - entertaining though EDIT
