This is one of a series of ferociously violent westerns produced by a group of left-leaning American expatriates who fetched up in Spain in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Director Alexander Singer once made the now forgotten urban mini-masterpiece A Cold Wind in August, but he seems less happy here. Nevertheless, he makes excellent use of the landscape and manages to generate some real tension. There's also a bizarre supporting turn from English character actor Percy Herbert, who holds his own against such western stalwarts as Stuart Whitman and Lee Van Cleef as the titular native American warrior.

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

Based on Joan Littlewood's stage production, this stylised, satirical and ultimately moving tribute to the soldiers who answered their country's call and fought in the Great War was Richard Attenborough's first film as a director. An all-star cast performs the original's jingoistic music hall songs, which Attenborough cleverly stages in Brighton's Royal Pavilion and on the old West Pier. While there was animosity behind the scenes - Len Deighton refused screen credit as the film's writer - this remains a distinctive piece of work and by far the most audacious film Attenborough has ever made. It also tapped into the Sergeant Pepper style that was all the rage in 1969.

Catherine Zeta-Jones, as the fiery heroine, proves she's a match for the men in the action sequences.

This true-life TV movie tells the story of Danny Cruz, an American-Asian baby who was abandoned on a US Navy base during the Korean War and became the subject of various nationalist, military and religious squabbles. Richard Thomas (John-Boy from The Waltons) gives a typically robust star turn as the ship's doctor who risks losing his commission to help the boy. Despite the unflattering portrayal of Koreans and Catholics, this variation on the John Mills vehicle The Baby and the Battleship is an unashamedly feel-good weepie.

Nora Ephron, the writer of When Harry Met Sally..., comes up trumps again as co-writer and director of this gloriously old-fashioned and unashamedly manipulative romantic comedy. Tom Hanks, recently widowed, moves to a new home in Seattle where he just grieves and grieves. His young son, concerned over his dad's state of mind, calls a radio phone-in and when Hanks himself goes on air, he pours his heart out. That's storyline one. Storyline two features Meg Ryan, a Baltimore journalist who hears the broadcast, recognises a kindred lonely heart and starts tracking Hanks down. Hanks's son, played by Ross Malinger, becomes their matchmaker, while the Cary Grant/Deborah Kerr weepie of 1957, An Affair to Remember, is always on TV and serves as a touchstone, providing the inspiration for the movie's climax at the top of the Empire State Building. For nearly two hours, Ephron keeps her marvellous stars apart, a potentially dangerous tactic that works superbly. In the summer of Jurassic Park, Sleepless in Seattle proved to be a box-office smash; the team subsequently reunited for You've Got Mail in 1998.

Japan's favourite giant lizard crawls out of radioactive waters in the South Pacific and heads for New York in this dreary American overhaul from 10,000 BC director Roland Emmerich. Resembling an over-produced version of The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, Emmerich's blockbuster behemoth replaces man-in-suit special effects with dodgy computer visuals and sub-Jurassic Park thrills. What it doesn't replicate is the endearing charm the celebrated fire-breather had when he stomped through cardboard skyscrapers. The old Toho Studios' fantasy adventures may have lower budgets, but even the cheapest shows more imagination and flair than this dismal monster mishmash.

Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams make an unlikely but likeable team in Notting Hill director Roger Michell's lively, classy comedy. She's a perky TV producer saddled with a failing morning show, while he's the station's veteran but time-serving news anchor who's forced to front the detested programme. Like Broadcast News (1987), it's more wry than laugh-out-loud funny, with the race for ratings providing the impetus for drama. Michell's seamless, steady direction lets McAdams's energy shine through and allows Ford and his fellow news anchor Diane Keaton to craft beautifully timed comedic performances, including their ongoing feud regarding who says the final on-air "goodbye". The relationship between McAdams and fellow producer Patrick Wilson may all be a bit predictable, but watch out for Matt Malloy, who almost steals the whole show as an intense, nerdy weatherman.

Martial arts action star Jackie Chan is given little to do in this James Bond-style adventure, because the mechanical gadgets obscure his physical gifts. Chan plays Jimmy Tong, a chauffeur to millionaire super-spy Clark Devlin (Jason Isaacs) whose hospitalisation leads Tong to try on Devlin's hi-tech dinner jacket. It imbues our hero with incredible acrobatic powers that confusingly lead to his involvement in an international espionage plot. Jennifer Love Hewitt's inept CIA agent provides the best comedy moments in the film, otherwise it's just a bunch of special effects, liberally poured on by director Kevin Donovan, that obscure Chan's true gifts - after all, the man practically is a special effect. It may have been made to measure, but this Tuxedo just isn't big enough for him.

This enticing helter-skelter ride through space-opera clich├ęs cleverly conceals the fact that there really isn't anything new of note here, just neat tangents off the basic Alien concept as nasty extraterrestrials relentlessly stalk their human prey through a deserted spaceship. Sigourney Weaver's Ripley is cloned 200 years after the action of Alien3 because she's carrying an alien queen foetus. French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet's shock thrill-ride does showcase some scintillating set pieces such as an underwater battle and a gallery of grotesque clones-gone-wrong. It's tense, mordantly funny, very graphic and bloody, while Weaver is on great form as the clone with some interesting alien influences on her personality.

Roland Emmerich has made a career out of creative destruction. The writer/director's hits Independence Day and The Day after Tomorrow feature humanity being destroyed by aliens and a climate change-induced ice age, respectively. He's firmly in his comfort zone for 2012, but this time it's solar flares that are to blame, as the planet gets microwaved. Cue some expensive, dramatic and genuinely awesome CGI as Yellowstone goes supervolcano, entire cities are destroyed and giant tsunamis romp across the globe. John Cusack stars as the failed author who is told the truth about the end of the world by Woody Harrelson's conspiracy theory nut, and attempts to save his kids and ex-wife (Amanda Peet). Chiwetel Ejiofor is a government scientist who knows what's happening, and also knows that the President (Danny Glover) has decided to keep the information from the masses. The script is nonsensical and while the actors do their best they are, inevitably, dwarfed by the breathtaking visual effects. Emmerich has outdone himself this time; this is a film that makes Independence Day look modest.

Jennifer Love Hewitt's inept CIA agent provides the best comedy moments in the film, otherwise it's just a bunch of special effects, liberally poured on by director Kevin Donovan, that obscure Chan's true gifts - after all, the man practically is a special effect. It may have been made to measure, but this Tuxedo just isn't big enough for him.

Roland Emmerich has made a career out of creative destruction. The writer/director's hits Independence Day and The Day after Tomorrow feature humanity being destroyed by aliens and a climate change-induced ice age, respectively. He's firmly in his comfort zone for 2012, but this time it's solar flares that are to blame, as the planet gets microwaved. Cue some expensive, dramatic and genuinely awesome CGI as Yellowstone goes supervolcano, entire cities are destroyed and giant tsunamis romp across the globe. John Cusack stars as the failed author who is told the truth about the end of the world by Woody Harrelson's conspiracy theory nut, and attempts to save his kids and ex-wife (Amanda Peet). Chiwetel Ejiofor is a government scientist who knows what's happening, and also knows that the President (Danny Glover) has decided to keep the information from the masses. The script is nonsensical and while the actors do their best they are, inevitably, dwarfed by the breathtaking visual effects. Emmerich has outdone himself this time; this is a film that makes Independence Day look modest.

Action star Steven Seagal has always brought a vaguely liberal slant to his no-brain thrillers and his directorial debut is admirably politically correct. It's just a shame that the caring, sharing eco-friendly message tends to overpower what Seagal does best - kicking the stuffing out of bad guys. Here he's a troubleshooter who goes into battle with oil tycoon Michael Caine - hammily over the top and with a scary hairdo to boot - who's about to pollute virtually all of Alaska. Seagal the director shows that he has picked up the odd trick or two from the action specialists who made his name, but his impassioned green speeches will have viewers reaching for the remote control.

Director Rob Schmidt pays tribute to 1970s exploitation cinema with this simplistic but extremely satisfying horror feature. Offering everything a high-quality shocker should, it's gruesome, gratuitous, totally terrifying and, above all, rollicking good fun. A blend of Deliverance, The Hills Have Eyes and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, it has mutant American hillbillies turning the woods of West Virginia into their personal (human) hunting ground. But the grisly extent of their "sport" only becomes clear when five campers and a stranded doctor (Ghost Ship's Desmond Harrington) fall prey to their cannibalistic urges. While Harrington and Eliza Dushku (Faith in TV's Buffy) deliver ballsy and believable heroics, it's producer Stan Winston's special effects that steal the show - horribly realistic, they send serious shivers down the spine. Add Schmidt's skilful use of shadow and sound to the equation and you've got a pretension-free chiller that - while derivative - really packs a punch.
