WHAT I LIKED: Mystery is the quintessential ingredient behind almost all great sci-fi, and Steven Spielberg's 'Close Encounters' is the ultimate example of that, as it raises so many interesting questions. Are these aliens real? If so, where did t... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Films which involve a character in the present narrating a past story which comes to life are rarely particularly successful. 'Forest Gump' is one of the few examples that works well, and 'Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Caf... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Blues Brothers' is all surface - a couple of cool criminals on the run from almost everyone trying to play with their awesome soul band in a story that spirals further and further out of control and gets increasingly, increasingly r... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Coming off the heels of the incredible 'Heat' - a thriller that was really a melancholic character-study at its heart - Michael Mann made 'The Insider' - a thriller that's really a melancholic character-study at its heart... Yes by t... Read the full review »

Jaws (1975)

Jaws (1975)

8 / 10
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: In the words of the legendary Mark Kermode, 'Jaws' is not about a shark. It's really about how commercial interests and people's obsession with money corrupts the people of a seaside town to ignore the danger of a man-eating sh... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Platoon' is quite simply one of the most harrowing and masterful depictions of war ever put to the big screen, as it almost exclusively devotes its time to painting a maddening picture of Vietnam with real intensity and vivid realit... Read the full review »

Dumbo (2019)

Dumbo (2019)

5 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Tim Burton's adaptation of the Disney classic Dumbo sees him add a whole lot of fluff to the original story, and it does have to be said that some of that stuff works on its own terms. The introduction of the human characters who run... Read the full review »

Dumbo (1941)

Dumbo (1941)

7 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Disney's 'Dumbo' is the simplest, loveliest little animation. It's the story of a young, outcast elephant at the circus who learns that he can fly to defy the bullies around him, and whilst that's literally all there is to it, it's a... Read the full review »
