A morally ambivalent tale of two policemen involved in various battles; for the top job, to put an end to a violent gang, to protect their snitches and, we are led to believe, in the past over a woman. Both policemen bend the laws beyond the limits of decency to achieve their ends in this dark and gun-slinging thriller set against the backdrop of a neon-lit Paris underworld. 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...

Blending elements of "Shallow Grave" and "Fargo", this noir-ish thriller should satisfy the most demanding fan of the genre. Set in the snowbound Midwest of America, the cautionary tale begins when three locals discover a crashed aircraft containing a dead pilot and millions of dollars in cash. Half-witted good ol' boys Jacob and Lou can't wait to get stuck into the obviously ill-gotten gains, while the sensible, principled Hank just knows it'll all end in tears. Of course, the trio go for the j find out more...

Every TV mini series and disaster movie cliche taken apart put back together, turned upside down and then kicked to bits. Starring all the actors who normally do this kind of thing seriously. A laugh every five seconds - this film can be watched over and over and over again! Voted second funniest film by Observer readers in a 2007 poll. find out more...
ALIEN (1979)

Much imitated but never equalled, this is the definitive space nightmare. The crew of a commercial spacecraft are stalked by a stowaway, mutating monster of veracious appetite. Weaver puts in a splendidly believable performance as the resourceful Ripley. Taut script and awesome special FX. 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...

The greatest movie ever made? A soldier is sent into the Heart of Darkness to retrieve a commander gone AWOL in an insane reality of tin-pot power, paranoia and inglorious killing. The horror of war is stripped naked in a surreal twilight world. The crew nearly went mad making it, Martin Sheen suffered a heart attack and Coppola flew so far beyond budget that the word 'bankrupt' was nearly redefined. See "Heart of Darkness"... find out more...

The definitive 'Apocalypse Now' (as if the original wasn't pretty definitive) this has nearly an hour of extra footage fleshing out the surreal journey of our central protagonists and, though it brings the film to a whisker short of three and a half hours, much of it explains what happens to the eclectic characters we meet. The cut version of 'Apocalypse Now' stands as one of the most awesome films of modern cinema, anyone who has seen it will inevitably see it again, it's just that now you have 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...
