GREASE (1978)

CertificationPG Our Rating

A high school musical which ripped off everything it could from the 1950s. At the time it was slated, but, in retrospect, it started a trend and is nowhere near as bad as some of the movies which followed it. In fact, one could go as far as to say it's now a bit of a classic... find out more...
SHANE (1953)

CertificationPG Our Rating

An archetypal classic Western, since remade countless times, with Alan Ladd superb as the world-weary gunslinger who rides into town and finds himself as the 'good guy' protecting the innocent from powerful malevolent forces. In this case the innocent are squatters determined to fight for their rights against a rancher and his gunmen; in one way this is the evolution of the west from lawlessness to settlement, in another the battle between big and small business. For Shane the options are clear, find out more...

One of the truily great adventure movies, the type that Star Wars paid tribute to, and an example of what the large studios could produce. Glorious colour, sumptuos sets, and a brilliantly choreographed climatic sword fight between Flynn and Rathbone. find out more...

A fatherless teenager arrives in California to find himself bullied by a local karate expert. Helped by a wise old Okinawan man, Miyagi, Daniel-san's training includes not just the technique to face his enemies in competition but many, far more valuable, moral lessons. A charming movie with many wry and wise quips and a huge nod to zen. 'Paintdafence', 'Wax-on-wax-off' and the less well known 'Sand-da-fwoor'. Ace. find out more...

Frodo and Sam make their last push towards Mount Doom where they must destroy the ring and bring about the end of Sauron's spreading darkness. Aragorn finally acknowledges his role as the peoples King and Gandalf gets a lot of repressed anger off his chest in the many battles against the dark lord's minions. The final instalment of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy sets new heights for the term ‘epic'; visually the film is breathtaking and against the odds Jackson manages to keep the varying t find out more...

WARGAMES (1983)

Certification15 Our Rating

Don't get put off by your understandable prejudices against Ally Sheedy, this movie is about as good as it gets from John Hughes. The plot revolves around the rather farsighted premise (this is 1983, folks!) that a young high school punk hacks into the national defence network (the old internet) and starts off a global nuclear incident. As Cold War paranoia abounds him and his girlfriend have to convince a disbelieving US military that it's all a big mistake. Sounds all a bit hokey, I know, b find out more...
