Porco Rosso
(1992) Hayao Miyazaki's sixth feature film tells of the adventures of the titular 'crimson pig', a heroic flying ace in the Adriatic.Hayao Miyazaki's sixth feature film tells of the adventures of the titular "crimson pig", a heroic flying ace in the Adriatic in the years after the First World War
A film that evolved slowly in Hayao Miyazaki's imagination (at various stages it appeared in manga, then was mooted as a short in-flight film), Porco Rosso sees the filmmaker indulging his love of old planes, notably flying boats, and Italy and the Mediterranean of a bygone era. Despite its unique contrivance of having a bipedal pig (snout, floppy ears, dashing 'tash) in a world of ordinary humans, this is no whimsy. And despite it being more readily humorous and playful than his later films like Spirited Away, it's far from trite, with its themes of remorse and dismay at the rise of fascism.

15:00
Lady From Louisiana
(1941) John Wayne stars in Bernard Vorhaus' film as attorney John Reynolds whose sent to investigate the Louisiana lottery.Big budget action drama sends lawyer John Wayne to clear up corruption in New Orleans before the levee breaks. Also starring Ona Munson and Ray Middleton
John Wayne swaps his trademark chaps and Stetson for a cream suit and jauntily angled chapeau in this lusty legal drama set in 1880s New Orleans. Made by Republic Pictures in 1941, it was the studio's most expensive film to date and it needed to be. Since his breakthrough performance as The Ringo Kid in John Ford's Stagecoach (1939), The Duke's presence - both in Hollywood and on screen - had been building exponentially. In Lady From Louisiana, he's as big and charismatic as director Bernard Vorhaus's lavish vision of the 'Big Easy' itself.

16:40
Picnic
(1955) Starring William Holden and Kim Novak, this is a sweltering tale of deception, betrayal and illicit love in smalltown Kansas.William Holden and Kim Novak star in this atmospheric drama, directed by the writer of South Pacific. A charismatic drifter arrives in a small Kansas town and hones in on the local beauty queen
A massive hit on its first release in 1955, this adaptation of William Inge's Broadway play, directed by South Pacific writer Joshua Logan, smoulders rather than explodes, and that's a large part of its enduring appeal. It's a love story, it paints a poignant picture of small-town life, and in Holden and Novak it has two charismatic stars at the peak of their powers.

Daniel Day-Lewis Interview

Daniel Day-Lewis talks about his latest film There Will Be Blood.


19:00
My House in Umbria
(2003) Richard Loncraine's film stars Maggie Smith as Emily Delahunty, a spinster of a certain age who lives in Umbria.Maggie Smith stars as a comically self-deluded romantic novelist, paying host to train explosion survivors, including Ronnie Barker and Chris Cooper, at her beautiful Italian villa
My House In Umbria With picture-postcard views of the Italian countryside and a reliably quirky central performance from Maggie Smith, this comedy drama is an experience to be wallowed in. Adapted by Hugh Whitemore from the novel by 'Felicia's Journey' author William Trevor, it oozes a love for sun-bleached foreign climes but with hints of discord to temper the lushness.

21:00
Little Nicky
(2000) Harvey Keitel plays an ageing Satan who, after considering retirement, decides to hang on for another 10,000 years.Adam Sandler plays the son of Satan. Hell's gates have closed and his elder brothers are causing hell on earth in this gross-out comedy
Little Nicky There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who find the thought of Satan ramming a pineapple up Hitler's arse funny, and those who really, really don't. If you're the former, you'll love this movie. If you're the latter... well, let's just say you won't.

22:35
American Psycho
(2000) An extraordinary and disturbing satire that stares deep into the heart of the materialistic world of the eighties yuppie.Mary Harron ably transforms Brett Easton Ellis' disgusting satire into an amusing, broad black comedy. Stars Christian Bale as the titular nutter
American Psycho Director Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol) seems to press all the right buttons for this film based on Easton Ellis's fabulous but genuinely horrifying book.

00:35
Funny Ha Ha
(2002) Love, work and the lack thereof are the basis for this acutely observed, micro-budget post-campus comedy.
Love, work and the lack thereof are the basis for this acutely observed, micro-budget post-campus comedy
Funny Ha Ha When Douglas Coupeland wrote about Generation X at the start of the 1990s, there was a sense of his isolating not just a new demographic, but of an anthropologist stepping into unmapped territory. Since then, thanks to Richard Linklater and Kevin Smith, the archetypal slacker has become such a clownishly familiar figure in the movies that you'd think there could be nothing new to say about the weary business of working jobs you hate in the town you've outgrown while the girl you have designs upon speeds off into the distance. It's all so, like, y'know?

Career Girls

Six years after leaving college two former housemates meet up and encounter the heroes and villains of their chronically neurotic youth
Career Girls After the success of Secrets & Lies Mike Leigh turned his attention to something much more intimate but no less affecting.

Rat Race
(2001) Casino magnate John Cleese pits a bunch of ordinary Joes against each other in a race to win $2m.Hollywood revisits the zany chase comedy in this frantically funny, endlessly inventive old-fashioned gag-fest. Casino magnate John Cleese pits a bunch of ordinary Joes against each other in a race to win $2m
Rat Race Yuppies, lottery dolts and corporate raiders take heart, Rat Race finally proves that greed is good - good for a laugh, that is. Director Zucker showed plenty of comic nous with Airplane! and further demonstrates his gift for broad, knowing, loony humour here. Returning to that long-neglected sub-genre, the chase comedy, he harnesses the comic talent of John Cleese, Rowan Atkinson, Whoopi Goldberg and, er, Cuba Gooding Jr to shake up a stupid, yet sophisticated, cocktail of slapstick, surrealism, gross-out and Hitler jokes.

15:00
Cattle Empire
(1958) Wronged cowboy Joel McCrea looks for revenge on a gruelling cattle drive.Wronged cowboy Joel McCrea looks for revenge on a gruelling cattle drive in this quality B-Western. Co-starring Don Heggarty and Gloria Talbot
Western veteran Joel McCrea plays John Cord, a brilliant trail boss whose tough but relaxed nature has been seriously provoked. He's spent the last five years in the slammer having been falsely accused of letting his drunken crew wreck a town after a cattle drive. Now Cord's free and it's payback time.

16:35
Penny Serenade
(1941) Oscar-nominee Cary Grant stars in George Stevens' surprisingly successful mix of tragic drama and humour. Also starring Irene Dunne.

18:55
Crocodile Dundee II
(1988) Paul Hogan returns as Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee in John Cornell's sequel to the hit comedy original.
Further adventures of Paul Hogan's Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee, this time pursued from New York back to the Australian Outback by vengeful drug dealers
Crocodile Dundee II One of the common mistakes when making a sequel to a smash-hit film is the assumption that because people came out in droves the first time, they're all gagging to go back again. This sorry sequel to a one-joke one-off is a classic example of such optimistic (ie greedy) thinking.


21:00
An Officer and a Gentleman
(1982) Richard Gere plays Zack Mayo, a would-be navy pilot whose uptight attitude at training camp brings him to attention of drill sergeant Emil Foley.Testosterone-pumped actioner meets romantic drama in the flick that launched Richard Gere as a heartthrob hero, while making a mint at the box office
An Officer And A Gentleman As the white-uniformed trainee naval officer with a troubled past and some mean martial arts skills, Gere is in top smooching form, playing opposite Debra Winger's local girl love interest. Pouring his heart out, racing around on his motorcycle and using his fighting skills to kick some butt (all to the tune of 'Up Where We Belong'), Gere combines a hard-edged military mentality with a surprisingly soft feminine side that's just waiting to be validated by the love of a good woman.

23:20
Battle Royale
(2000) Randomly selected Japanese youngsters are sent to an island to take part in a macabre 'game': they must kill or be killed until only one is left.Bizarre and often brilliant Japanese film about a class of school children put on an island and forced to fight to the death. Features Takeshi Kitano as the ex-teacher compere
Battle Royale This is a different kind of high school movie. It does all the things other teen movies do: the Japanese teens in Battle Royale have painful crushes on each other, try to look cool and don't trust the adults. But they have also been drugged and placed on an island and told to kill each other. In this alternative Japan, social cohesion has broken down so far that the government has passed the Battle Royale Act, and, as a symbolic punishment, one school class a year has to fight down to a final winner. And if more than one person is left alive, all the survivors die (thanks to the charming device of explosive collars round their necks).


01:35
Southern Comfort
(1981) A group of National Guardsmen on a training weekend suddenly find themselves in deadly conflict with the local Cajuns.A lost platoon of National Guardsmen falls foul of a band of bloodthirsty rednecks. Action thriller starring Fred Ward, Powers Boothe and Keith Carradine, and written and directed by Walter Hill
Southern Comfort There was a time in the early 1980s when it looked as if Walter Hill might don the mantle of his mentor Sam Peckinpah. With the great man marginalised from the system (he was reduced to making genre pictures like The Osterman Weekend and music videos for Julian Lennon) and Hill having scored sizeable hits with The Warriors and The Long Riders, it seemed possible that the screenwriter of The Getaway could establish a body of work to rival the cinematic carnage of 'Bloody Sam's' CV. Of course, things didn't work out as they might and Hill would tread B-movie water for the better part of 20 years before scoring big with the spectacular TV western 'Deadwood'. That Hill failed to follow in Peckinpah's blood-spattered path seems sad when one considers the artistic success of Southern Comfort, a violent but intelligent action movie of the sort Peckinpah used to make in his sleep.

Blood On The Sun
(1945) James Cagney is an American newspaper editor stationed in Tokyo who uncovers a sinister scheme by the Japanese Prime Minister for world conquest.Mystery, intrigue and Japanese plans for world domination in this noirish thriller starring James Cagney as a tough newspaperman in pre-World War II Tokyo
Blood on the Sun is an interesting Hollywood noir made in the final year of the Second World War by the production company of James Cagney and his brother William. It's set in the late 1920s and bases its conceit on a belief in the Tanaka Memorial, a document that was supposedly the blueprint of Japan's plans to expand from Manchuria, into China and the rest of Asia, then the US, and the world. The existence of the document has never been proven, but it was generally believed to exist in the 1940s.

(1953) Richard Widmark is a US Navy Chief Petty Officer seconded to 'nanny' a group of Navy meteorologists observing weather in the desert.Richard Widmark leads a gaggle of stranded meteorologists through the treacherous Mongolian landscape in this unusual WWII adventure from director Robert Wise
Destination Gobi Few actors have done pissed off and sweaty as well as Richard Widmark. In Destination Gobi he gets to do both in spades.

16:30
A Matter Of Life And Death
(1946) Powell and Pressburger romantic fantasy, starring David Niven as the airman who cheats death because of a clerical error on the part of an angel.Originally commissioned by the wartime Ministry of Information to bolster relations between Britain and the US, Powell's compassionate and technically superb film about a pilot who cheats death has come to be regarded as a masterpiece in its own right
a_matter_of_life_and_deat h One of Powell's and Pressburger's most elegant achievements, and Powell's own favourite from his time at the production company Archer's, this is part romance, part surrealist courtroom drama.

18:30
I Am Sam
(2001) Sean Penn keeps it simple in a worthy but largely worthwhile tale about a man with a mental age of seven who faces losing his daughter.Sean Penn keeps it simple in a worthy but largely worthwhile tale about a man with a mental age of a seven-year-old who faces losing his daughter
Sean Penn has long been one of the best reasons for going to the movies. From Fast Times At Ridgemont High to Sweet And Lowdown, his list of great performances is lengthier than most actors' CVs. However, while his sophisticated work has garnered him awards at festivals such as Cannes, Berlin and Venice, it has been undervalued in his native America. It's perhaps for this reason that Penn plumped for the showy role of Sam Dawson.

21:00
Judge Dredd
(1995) Sly Stallone is The Law in the dystopian Megacity in this screen adaptation of the popular 1970s comic book.The popular, long-running British comic strip character gets the Hollywood treatment to disappointing effect in this good-looking but flawed action movie
This attempt to bring the British comic-book character (who had his origins in the late 70s and is still going strong in '2000AD') to the big screen was a disappointment.

23:00
Battle Royale II
(2003) A class of Japanese school kids is co-opted into carrying out the murderous work of the government. In Japanese with English subtitles.A class of Japanese school kids is co-opted into carrying out the murderous work of the government in the sequel to the 2000 cult hit
Suffering from problems typical to sequels, such as trying to compensate for a lack of originality by piling on bigger and louder sensations, Battle Royale II: Requiem is nonetheless a largely energetic and fascinating film. Just don't expect it to be as sharp, tight and neatly inventive as Battle Royale.


01:40
The Return
(2003) Andrei Zvyagintsev's drama sees two young teenage boys return home to find a stranger on the bed, claiming to be their longlost father.After 12 years away, the father of two boys reappears and takes them on a gruelling journey to a remote island where disaster strikes. Award-winning Russian drama by Andrei Zvyaginstev
A haunting mix of fable and psychodrama, much in the debut of Russian filmmaker Andrei Zvyaginstev feels like the retelling of an ancient myth. Visually striking, thematically bleak and constructed according to a logic all its own, on its release in Russia Zvyaginstev was hailed as a worthy successor to Tarkovsky.

A Man Betrayed
(1941) John Wayne plays Lynn Hollister, a lawyer who leaves his sleepy hometown to find out who was responsible for the murder of his best friend.John Wayne stars as a small town lawyer investigating the murder of a friend in New York City in this mystery-comedy
In your mind's eye you picture John Wayne with a big hat and a six shooter, walking tall through Monument Valley, or somesuch iconic western location, as epitomised by The Searchers. Aside from his forays into war movies (from Sands Of Iwo Jima to The Green Berets ), it's fair to say Wayne was quientessentially a star of westerns, so it's interesting to see him in roles where he's not riding the range.

You Can't Take It With You
(1938) A family of eccentrics take on a wealthy tycoon when love strikes their respective daughter and son. Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur star.A family of eccentrics take on a wealthy tycoon when love strikes their respective daughter and son. Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur star with Frank Capra directing
Frank Capra's most successful comedies are often criticised for being too sentimental. Beneath that sugar coating however, there's often a deeper tension. More than merely championing the underdog on the path to happiness, his film's worldview can be deeply cynical, seeing the individual as a cog in the gears of big industry, a fate which only the stars (notably Jimmy Stewart) ultimately manage to escape here.

17:00
The Four Feathers
(1939) Alexander Korda's spectacular production of A E W Mason's action-adventure novel, starring John Clements.Fourth cinema adaptation of AEW Mason's popular novel set at the height of the British Empire. An early Technicolor celebration of the British stiff-upper lip and the North African landscape
After watching The Four Feathers it's no surprise to learn that its Hungarian born producer, Zoltan Korda, was so ardent an anglophile that he once refused to make a film of the novel 'The Bridge On The River Kwai' on the grounds that it showed British officers collaborating with the enemy (regardless of the circumstances).

19:20
The Brady Bunch Movie
(1995) Betty Thomas directs this comedy about one of America's favourite TV families of the 70s.Admirable parody of a 70s comedy about a large family
The Brady Bunch Movie Bereft of original ideas for movies in the mid-90s, Hollywood started mining the plots of successful TV series. Director Thomas wisely kept the Bradys firmly in the 70s (home, hair, fashion sense), but propelled them into the 90s, where they are a bunch of irrepressibly happy freakazoids, much loathed by their worldly wise, hard-drinking property developer neighbour, who wants to buy their home and sell it for a fortune.

21:00
About Schmidt
(2002) Tender, funny and poignant, a venomous tale of one man's reckoning with his own mediocrity, boasting a nuanced and restrained Jack Nicholson.Tender, funny and poignant, Alexander Payne's About Schmidt is also a venomous tale of one man's reckoning with his own mediocrity, boasting a nuanced and restrained turn from Jack Nicholson as the eponymous sixtysomething
About Schmidt Following The Pledge, this is Jack Nicholson's second film in a row that begins with his character gracing a retirement party thrown for him by colleagues. Unlike his Nevada homicide detective in Sean Penn's film, Nicholson's former insurance actuary Warren Schmidt does not veer off into madness as the story progresses; rather, after leaving his job and witnessing the death of a wife he has little affection for, the grouchy 66 year-old Nebraskan undergoes a late-life crisis.

23:25
Rush Hour 2
(2001) Detective duo Lee and Carter have their Hong Kong holiday ruined when they run into Triad big cheese Ricky Tan.Detective duo Lee and Carter have their Hong Kong holiday ruined when they run into Triad big cheese Ricky Tan in this follow-up to the film that made Jackie Chan a Hollywood star
Rush Hour 2 Before he teamed up with Owen Wilson for Shanghai Noon, Jackie Chan's assault on the US had been as successful as a Stephen Hawking-led ascent of Everest. Rumble In The Bronx, First Strike and Mr. Nice Guy, while not without their merits, were a poor imitation of Hong Kong classics like Police Story and Armour Of God. Of course, purists didn't have too many kind things to say about his Western movies, but at least they played to his strengths as both a comedian and a kick-ass king of action cinema.

01:10
The Last Mitterand
(2005) A dramatisation of the French president Francois Mitterrand's final years in office and his struggle with cancer.A dramatisation of the French president François Mitterrand's final years in office and his struggle with cancer
The Last Mitterrand At first glance it might seem that a film about the late president Mitterrand won't have much to offer anyone without an interest in late 20th century French politics. However, while it does provide an interesting take on the life, times and legacy of this most mercurial of men, there's much more to The Last Mitterrand (aka Le Promeneur Du Champ Du Mars).

Gentleman's Agreement
(1947) Gregory Peck is Philip Schuyler Green, a magazine writer who, posing as a Jew, encounters the bitter prejudice of the times.Peck is the journalist who poses as a Jew to write a series of magazine articles on anti-Semitism, only to find more prejudice running through all parts of society than he had bargained for. The ensuing melodrama, which draws Peck's family into repercussions resulting from his charade, is often overstated and while this multi-Oscar-winning film was controversial at the time of its release, it now seems overly preachy. A sometimes crude script drives its points home, the cast is excellent and it is interesting at least in as far as it illustrates Hollywood's immediate reaction to the end of the Second World War.

15:15
The One That Got Away
(1957) The exploits of German flier Franz Von Werra who was the only prisoner-of-war captured in World War II Britain to escape and get back to Germany.British-made POW escape caper with a difference. Hardy Kruger stars as a real-life German flying ace making his break for freedom from a succession of Allied camps
It's a credit to the might of the propaganda machine operating throughout and beyond the Second World War that many of us are still only vaguely aware that the Allies had their own POW camps. Perhaps the authorities missed a trick, because while our boys were burrowing to freedom like rabbits from the Nazi jails, Jerry was having no such luck. In fact only one German prisoner ever escaped from an Allied camp to return to the Fatherland. His name was Oberleutnant Franz Von Werra, and The One That Got Away is his story.

Lady From Louisiana
(1941) John Wayne stars in Bernard Vorhaus' film as attorney John Reynolds whose sent to investigate the Louisiana lottery.Big budget action drama sends lawyer John Wayne to clear up corruption in New Orleans before the levee breaks. Also starring Ona Munson and Ray Middleton
John Wayne swaps his trademark chaps and Stetson for a cream suit and jauntily angled chapeau in this lusty legal drama set in 1880s New Orleans. Made by Republic Pictures in 1941, it was the studio's most expensive film to date and it needed to be. Since his breakthrough performance as The Ringo Kid in John Ford's Stagecoach (1939), The Duke's presence - both in Hollywood and on screen - had been building exponentially. In Lady From Louisiana, he's as big and charismatic as director Bernard Vorhaus's lavish vision of the 'Big Easy' itself.

Love Story
(1970) Ryan O'Neal plays Oliver Bartlett IV and Ali MacGraw Jennifer Cavalleri, two Harvard students who fall in love, one of whom is terminally ill.A law student falls in love with a music scholar, much to the chagrin of his wealthy father. Then it all goes morbid
Love Story It stars a leading lady who isn't really an actress, and a leading man with a limited range. Arrogantly called Love Story, the film suggests itself as the definitive account of amour, but Arthur Hiller's romantic drama has many strikes against it. Even a beefy turn from Welsh legend Ray Milland, and the screen debut of one Tommy Lee Jones isn't enough to save it.

21:00
Rush Hour 2
(2001) Detective duo Lee and Carter have their Hong Kong holiday ruined when they run into Triad big cheese Ricky Tan.Detective duo Lee and Carter have their Hong Kong holiday ruined when they run into Triad big cheese Ricky Tan in this follow-up to the film that made Jackie Chan a Hollywood star
Rush Hour 2 Before he teamed up with Owen Wilson for Shanghai Noon, Jackie Chan's assault on the US had been as successful as a Stephen Hawking-led ascent of Everest. Rumble In The Bronx, First Strike and Mr. Nice Guy, while not without their merits, were a poor imitation of Hong Kong classics like Police Story and Armour Of God. Of course, purists didn't have too many kind things to say about his Western movies, but at least they played to his strengths as both a comedian and a kick-ass king of action cinema.

22:45
Fever Pitch
(1997) Colin Firth stars as Paul, a man besotted by one woman and eleven men in David Evans' film of Nick Hornby's award winning 'autobiography'.A romantic comedy about a man, a woman and Arsenal Football Club
Nick Hornby's autobiographical novel about a dedicated Arsenal fan following the Gunners' 1988/89 title challenge was as instrumental in the middle-classes hi-jacking football grounds as the Taylor Report. This adaptation for the screen confirmed the social change by casting Colin Firth in the central role.

Tell Me Something
(1999) A timid female museum worker may hold the key to unravelling a series of murders in this dark and gruesome serial killer thriller from South Korea.A timid female museum worker may hold the key to unravelling a series of murders. A dark and gruesome serial killer thriller from South Korea
David Fincher has a lot to answer for. In the years since he directed Seven (1995), his dark, moody and rain-spattered take on the serial killer genre has become the definitive text, and this South Korean thriller is happy to borrow most of his visual style. It also cranks up the gore level several notches, relishing the prospect of putting audiences through a handful of truly stomach-churning sequences. These revolve around the grisly discovery of seven black plastic bags dumped on the streets of Seoul, each one containing a hacked-up male corpse with one vital body part missing.

The Sun Shines Bright
(1953) John Ford's favourite film features the same character, Judge Priest, that appeared in his eponymous 1934 film.An old judge standing for re-election finds it hard to cope with the new way of doing American politics. Ford's masterfully observed comedy of social manners rings true as the old are confronted with the new, neither side having much time for the other. His idealized view of American values may at times seem naive, but this, one of Ford's own favourite films, is beautifully crafted, and Winninger, as the judge, turns in the performance of a lifetime.

14:45
The One That Got Away
(1957) The exploits of German flier Franz Von Werra who was the only prisoner-of-war captured in World War II Britain to escape and get back to Germany.British-made POW escape caper with a difference.

A Town Like Alice
(1956) Taut Second World War drama reflecting the experience of the generation of Australians that fought the war against the Japanese.After being captured by the Japanese, a group of women and children are forced to trek across Malaya in this classic World War II story based on the novel by Nevil Shute
For a good film, A Town Like Alice has a terrible opening. Lead character Jean Paget (McKenna), sitting stock still, face to camera, explains to her solicitor (a wooden Geoffrey Keen) that she wants to go back to Malaya "even after what happened there". She makes a clunky reference to the money she's inherited and informs him she's going to dig a well. The next cut sees her in the village (or at least a Pinewood studio recreation of a village) by a well, again standing stock still and having another stilted conversation about her plans for the future. Eventually she drifts unconvincingly into an overdubbed memory of "all that's happened since the day that changed my life, that day in Kuala Lumpur in 1942."

19:10
The Muse
(1999) Director Albert Brooks also stars as a successful Hollywood scriptwriter who hits writer's block.Hollywood satire in which Sharon Stone provides divine inspiration to struggling screenwriter Albert Brooks. Suitably riddled with high profile cameos
Though never a prolific director, Albert Brooks (Modern Romance, Lost In America) is well deserving of his reputation as one of America's most incisive comic talents. Here he presents a showbiz satire that's somewhat slow, but reliable entertaining.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

A surprise hit in the US
My Big Fat Greek Wedding Where have all the decent romantic comedies gone? Even the biggest UK hit of 2002 was about Hugh Grant's friendship with a schoolboy. Evidently audiences in the States were wondering the same thing, so when a low-budget film about an inter-ethnic relationship with no major stars (Corbett is better known from his roles in 'Northern Exposure' and 'Sex And The City') came along, word of mouth made it into the surprise hit of the summer.

Sean Vetter (Diesel) and Demetrius Hicks (Tate) are buddies since way back. LA street kids, they became cops because, as the latter says, "I was sick of complainin' " that the po-lice did nothing for their community. As DEA agents, they're tough, they're maverick ("We don't look like cops, we don't dress like cops, we don't talk like cops") but they get the job done.

"It's been a shit of a day and it hasn't even started yet." Here's a surreal black comedy from Hungary so dingy you'll be checking for dirt under your nails on leaving the cinema.

All About Eve
(1950) Margo Channing is the acid-tongued star of screen and stage who takes the young, innocent, mousey Eve Harrington under her wing.Bette Davis excels as an aging diva in the six times Oscar Winner. Sit back and 'Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night'
Davis gives one of the performances of her career portraying aging stage diva Margot Channing with a painful air of authenticity: the camp star, still awesome but aware of the ravages of time and the threat of younger actresses snapping at her heels

15:50
Long Day's Journey Into Night
(1962) Ralph Richardson plays James Tyrone, a once great actor who has allowed his talent to fade while Katharine Hepburn plays his morphine-addicted wife.Lumet's justified reputation for expert, short-schedule transfers of plays to the screen began with Twelve Angry Men. This faithful adaptation of O'Neill's autobiographical masterwork needed someone of Lumet's clout to get the vast undertaking off the ground - and keep it afloat. His insurance was a magnificent cast, with Hepburn as the morphine-addicted mother and Richardson as the father, too mean with money and miserly of spirit to help his wife or sick son. Stockwell and Robards Jr do well as the offspring, against mega competition. Lumet doesn't try to open up the play, and it grips - even at 174 minutes.

(2005) Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn star as two long-term buddies who've worked out that weddings are the ideal place to pick up women.Champion liggers Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn get more than they bargain for when they invite themselves to a high-society marriage in this spirited comedy
"One day you'll look back on this and laugh," says Vince Vaughn's character in this comedy from David Dobkin, the director of Shanghai Knights. It's a pretty good summation of a film that, while thoroughly predictable and infuriatingly long, delivers enough laughs to keep you smiling through its dull patches.

Underworld
(2003) An ancient blood feud between vampires and werewolves is the backdrop to Len Wiseman's stylish, Gothic horror - starring Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen.An ancient blood feud between vampires and werewolves is the backdrop to this horror action movie
For centuries, the ancient races of vampires and werewolves have been fighting fang-to-fang in a desperate battle for dominance. Beautiful vampire warrior Selene (Beckinsale) is one of the aristocratic vampire clan's most fearsome foot soldiers. But, after falling in love with a human doctor (Speedman) who's been bitten by a rampaging "Lycan", she questions her commitment to the war and her faith in vampire elder Viktor (Nighy).

(1999) Sharon Stone is the eponymous mobster moll, who becomes the reluctant guardian of a six-year-old boy who possesses dangerous information.Sharon Stone goes on the run with a six year old kid in Sydney Lumet's remake of John Cassavetes' gangster thriller. Poor writing and lame direction further hamstring a film that never really needed to be made in the first place
John Cassavetes was fairly scathing about his own 1980 version of this film, admitting his motivation had more to do with economics rather than entertainment. Lumet's mysterious decision to remake it does no one any favours, least of all Sharon Stone, whose career was subsequently derailed by a major stroke.
