Poster for Beverly Hills Cop

Beverly Hills Cop

8.0

1984, Action, Comedy, Crime

There’s just enough grit and edge here to keep the proceedings from feeling too lightweight, but not to the extent of overwhelming the humour.

1968, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

The 'Burbs

7.0

1989, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

The comic situations, veering from sly satire of middle class American concerns to broad Chevy Chase-style slapstick, are generally pretty funny.

1971, Drama

A fine and imaginatively made movie, if a little overlong.

1978, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Kershner only grapples fleetingly with either idea and largely settles for a pedestrian, talk-heavy mystery.

Poster for Escape from New York

Escape from New York

8.0

1981, Action, Science fiction

Stands up as an amusing and stylish effort...

Poster for First Men in the Moon

First Men in the Moon

6.0

1964, Adventure, Science fiction

Has its moments but ultimately feels a bit blah.

2017.11.21

Poster for Jason and the Argonauts

An archetypal Bank Holiday favourite which holds up remarkably well even after all of these years.

Decent, colourful science-fantasy fun.

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

5.0

2017, Drama, Love

It’s a real shame that such a great Annette Bening performance has ended up in such a dispiriting film...

2017.11.18

Poster for Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express

6.0

2017, Drama, Crime, Mystery

A film which largely does what it says on the tin and does so with enough overall style and charm to make it hard to resent.

Poster for The Ice Pirates

The Ice Pirates

6.0

1984, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

It could have been great if the tone was more consistent...

Worth watching for its occasional bold ideas and a fine cast.

The Big Combo

8.0

1955, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

A memorable noir thriller with a catchy jazzy theme by David Raksin.

Poster for Force of Evil

Force of Evil

1948, Drama, Action, Crime

Deservedly ranked as a noir classic.

2017.11.17

Poster for Secret Beyond the Door

Secret Beyond the Door

6.0

1948, Drama, Suspense, Crime

It’s a bad melodrama that’s paradoxically well worth watching due to some truly great moments of cinema.

2017.11.17

Poster for The Dark Mirror

The Dark Mirror
