CHI-RAQ (2015)

Certification15 Our Rating

Lee returns to his previous polemic and fine filmmaking form with Chi-Raq, a musical-comedy satire about the cycle and effects of violence and gun crime on black communities in America. The story is all Lysistrata (Aristophanes); women withhold sex from men in the hopes of making them stop using violence against each other. It's far from politically correct, not nearly as find out more...

GI JANE (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

Okay, so the likelihood of the first woman to be accepted for Navy SEALs training looking like the Queen of Tinseltown is less than zero, but this is Hollywood, so "Gimme" Moore gamely gets her kit on, and her hair off, for the lads.

Certification12 Our Rating

Mismatched city girl trio Stella, Ag and Prue (one sensible, one shy, one saucy) head for Devon to be "land girls" - working the fields while the boys go off to fight WW2. Needless to say, the uncommonly attractive sophisticats cause quite a stir down on the farm, not least in wannabe pilot Steven Mackintosh's trousers. The war itself seems almost incidental in this "growing-up" movie which, though somewhat uneventful, all looks very pretty. find out more...
