A wonderfully adapted film based round the exploits of Cicero, aka Elyesa Bazna, the Albanian born valet (Mason at his best) of the British ambassador to Turkey, who sold secrets to the Germans during 1944. The valet's gentlemanly pretensions are put to the test in this tale of espionage and romantic intrigue. Ace.

A film version of the notorious events surrounding the demonization and media witchhunt of the religiously nutty mother of a baby who was gobbled by dingoes near Ayers Rock..... the famous 'dingo baby case'. Just shows that the Aussie press, owned by you know who, is as criminally irresponsible, ie full of lies, as the Pommie press, owned by you know who. find out more...

A British made, 1950s epic charting the sinking of the unsinkable. On April 10th 1912, the luxury liner Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage. Four days later, it sank in just 2 hours 40 minutes, needlessly claiming the lives of 1,500 passengers and crew. Infinitely less glamourous than the contemporary Hollywood version, what it lacks in gloss it makes up for with no-nonsense, straightforward storytelling. Truth is, the hard facts are far more shocking than anything Tinseltown could come up wit find out more...

With the swimming pools, drugs, girls and parties come a bunch of spoilt young brats who seem to take their cues from 'American History X' and black inner city gangster movies. They tattoo themselves, build their bodies, call their girls bitches, sell drugs, fight and use guns. Violence, drugs, language, this movie has them in bucketloads, even sex raises its head. Plotwise; headcase Jake owes lots of drug money to drug lord's son John and John kidnaps Jake's younger brother as a hostage. Kid br find out more...

Inside this conventionally structured biopic resides an extraordinary story of an extraordinary man. William Wilberforce was the parliamentary spokesman for a group of radicalised young Evangelists (and Quakers), who despised the money politics and corruption of late 18th Century UK politics and who fought for many reformist policies, the most notable of which was the one this film annotates, the abolition of slavery, a process that took years of political skulduggery and the slow passage of find out more...

Al Gore finds life after the politically crushing embarrassment that was his tenure as vice president and, frankly, it's unlikely he will experience another point as high as his achievement in this profound, engaging and, mercifully, clear documentary on the consequences of our complacent greed. That ĎAn Inconvenient Truth' provides little in the way of true revelations pertaining to the earth's (humanity's) looming ecological demise, and ignores some of the more profound problems of trapped car find out more...

Superb FX, slick direction and spot-on characterisation combine to make this a truly thrilling account of the jinxed 1970 Moon mission. OK, so we already know the story, but Ron Howard has triumphed with this tale of three men almost spaced-out forever in something resembling a hairdryer. find out more...
