8 WOMEN (2008)

Certification15 Our Rating

The ageing patriot of a country estate set in the hauntingly beautiful landscape of French winter, is found dead shortly before the families Christmas celebrations. There are eight suspects, all female, all with an incentive, each with a secret and all in their own very different ways, remarkable. Eight Women is a gloriously enjoyable whodunit, clever, witty and visually sumptuous, but it's the cast, ye gods the cast! That lifts it all that extra level. Excellent find out more...
CRY-BABY (1990)

Certification15 Our Rating

US teen heart-throb Johnny Depp plays Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker, the coolest dude in school and the baddest boy in Baltimore. Rich, prim, new girl Alison thinks he's a dream, her grandmother thinks he's a nightmare. An even weirder cast than 'Hairspray' in this quirky, offbeat musical extravaganza that's got a touch of traditional John Waters shock stuff, but is predominately a parody of both 50s teen rebellion and 50s teen musical flicks. Its reputation has grown hugely with time. find out more...

Allen's musical comedy uses evergreen 30s and 40s numbers and centres on the happy problems of an upper-class NY pair and their extended family. Exquisite photography captures Manhattan in all 4 seasons and the cast (bar Drew Barrymore) sing their own songs. As digestible as a perfect souffle. find out more...
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...

For John Waters this is a very straight movie...Tracy Turnblatt wins her way onto her local TV teenage dance show and becomes one of the regular boppers. The reigning teen queen is none too pleased with the success of her rival especially when Tracy introduces racially mixed dancing...totally ace flick!!! find out more...

A musical comedy about a blood-thirsty plant (voice, care of Levi Stubbs) from Outerspace seems a touch unlikely, but this is just what this movie is! Finding the plant, Audrey, shoots shop assistant Rick Moranis to fame and fortune - but the answer to his problems soon starts to create more of them. Good family fun!

Just simply the best musical ever made. Witty, inventive, brilliant, wonderful and slightly surreal, managing to parody Hollywood without ever quite descending into self-parody.

Tim Burton brings Stephen Sondheim's musical prodigy to the big screen and as you'd expect he does a beautiful and atmospheric job of it. Both Depp and Carter revel in the opportunity given to them and the tale has a gloriously dark, gruesomely humourous tone, which brings me on to my own personal issues… the modern musical; much of the the of dialogue in Sweeney Todd is sung and there is just so much lilting 'mockney' cockney I can take. I can accept this is hugely entertaining film, it's just find out more...

We're off to see the wizard - the wonderful wizard of Oz - no not Shane Warne but the theme song from this magical musical. Little Dorothy gets whipped away from the horrors of pre-war rural Kansas along the "Yellow Brick Road" with a gutless lion, a heartless robot and a scarecrow - brilliant. Oh, and look out for the hanging munchkin! find out more...
