Jaws- (1975)

7.3/10 Stars

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

Peter Benchley's pulp bestseller is here turned into the scariest sea saga ever filmed, with Steven Spielberg creating maximum suspense in the first dark moments and then maintaining the momentum with brilliant sleight-of-hand direction. The tale of a great white shark terrorising a New England resort community and the modern-day Captain Ahab (Robert Shaw) employed to kill it is now a classic of the suspense thriller genre. It's also credited with creating the summer blockbuster craze that Hollywood pins its financial hopes on every year. John Williams's Oscar-winning music and the excellent performances of Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss add to the ingeniously mounted tension that cleverly plays on all our deepest primeval fears.

Mayflower Madam- (1987)
01:00 - 03:00 - Sun 22/1/17 - True Entertainment
3.0/10 Stars

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

A fact-based TV movie that wastes the talents of lead actress Candice Bergen. She plays Sydney Biddle Barrows, a debutante descended from America's founding fathers (and mothers) and so thought of as an aristocrat, who ended up running a high-class "escort service of fantasy girls" and made headlines for over a year in the 1980s. The real-life Barrows turns up in a cameo role, but there's little else of interest.


Black Swan- (2010)

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

The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky's dark, hypnotic study of obsession is set in the punishing world of ballet, where serious hard graft doesn't always guarantee results and stardom is perhaps at its most fleeting. Natalie Portman plays Nina, an aspiring lead with a New York dance company, who's determined to win the coveted role of the Swan Queen in an upcoming production of Swan Lake. However, the ballet's director (Vincent Cassel) is sceptical. Though Nina is perfect for the virginal Swan Queen, the shy, repressed dancer struggles to impress him as the Black Swan, her sexually magnetic alter ego. The arrival of the talented and rebellious Lily (Mila Kunis) raises the stakes, and as Nina wrestles with her demons, the film hurtles towards an exhilarating and disturbing climax that will please fans of Roman Polanski's early work. Logic and originality are sometimes lacking, but Aronofsky's bravura direction and Portman's sincere, mesmerising performance paper over those particular cracks.

This energetic vehicle for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hardly stretches the former wrestler, as he plays Derek Thompson, a washed-up ice hockey star best known for battering his opponents. But worse than that, Derek crushes the childhood dreams of his girlfriend's young daughter when he tells her there's no such thing as the tooth fairy. Cue a trip to Fairyland, where Derek is sentenced to a week as a real-life tooth fairy to make amends. Stephen Merchant, Ricky Gervais's long-standing collaborator, takes on his first major Hollywood role as Derek's reluctant mentor, and they make for a surprisingly amusing odd couple. The slapstick humour comes thick and fast as Derek, complete with wings and leotard, struggles with his new line of work. Of course, it does take a while to get going, is ultimately very predictable and lapses into sentimentality towards the end. But Johnson is an eminently likeable lead and the impressive supporting cast, including Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal, makes up for Johnson's lack of acting finesse.

This jaw-dropping disaster movie makes director Roland Emmerich's previous outings feel like expensive dress rehearsals. For all their epic destruction, his previous features Independence Day and the lacklustre Godzilla are damp squibs compared to this astonishing, cautionary tale. Rooted loosely in scientific reality, the film piles on the Hollywood excess to deliver a US-centred thrill-ride in which global warming abruptly pushes the planet into a new ice age during one incredible worldwide superstorm. Though there's a human element, focusing on climatologist Dennis Quaid's cross-country journey to Manhattan to rescue his trapped son, Jake Gyllenhaal, it's the weather effects that take centre stage. Putting aside the anticlimactic conclusion, this is cinema as pure spectacle, as tornados, flash floods, hurricanes and snow demolish cities including LA and New York. Never mind that the dialogue is frequently laugh-out-loud cheesy and the performances are often melodramatic, what counts here is the enormous entertainment factor.

This western is notable only for a performance of immense dignity from the great Burt Lancaster as a Mexican-American lawman bent on justice. An unlikely debut for Broadway theatre director Edwin Sherin, who fails to get the most out of the material and quite clearly has no cinema technique. Additionally, the film is crucially under-cast, with a far stronger screen presence than Jon Cypher required as Lancaster's adversary. Only Richard Jordan manages to register among the supports. Shot in Spain, this is a film from a period in Lancaster's career when he simply seemed glad to be working.

What could audiences have possibly done to deserve such torture? As this inane series continues, each episode becomes sillier and more slapdash than the last. There's no Steve Guttenberg in this one (he must have read the script), and all you need to know is that the bumbling cops, as the title suggests, visit Miami for a convention, which is the only thing that differentiates this extremely mediocre movie from the four that went before.

In this reasonably enjoyable visit to the glossy world of novelist Danielle Steel, Beverly Hills 90210's Jennie Garth is perfectly cast as the heroine. She plays a rising young star of the entertainment world who has put her personal tragedies behind her, but remains haunted by her first love, Craig Bierko. Director Michael Miller, who made the cult prisoner-on-the-run drama Jackson County Jail but now seems happier with Steel adaptations, revels in the melodramatic clichés, and the result is an undemanding slice of romantic tosh.

Director Roger Donaldson (The World's Fastest Indian, Dante's Peak) goes for something different from his previous output here, with this good, old-fashioned British heist movie set in the early 1970s. Jason Statham plays the leader of a ragtag bunch of crooks who's persuaded by a former flame (Saffron Burrows) to break into the safety-deposit boxes of a Baker Street bank. But murky forces are afoot. Unbeknown to Statham and company, one of the boxes contains a right royal secret and the shadier elements of Britain's security forces will stop at nothing to ensure that it stays secret. Despite claims that it is founded in fact, The Bank Job is fancifully plotted and quite preposterous, but with a fast-moving script from Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, it still manages to be entertaining, engaging and the sort of Swinging Sixties-style caper film that they don't really make anymore.

Lindsay Wagner as a hooker? Actually, her fans can rest assured that she is only pretending, although how anybody could be taken in by her disguise is just one of the shaky premises of this made-for-TV fluff. Wagner is the devoted mother who begins to suspect that an ex-con is grooming her daughter (Renee Humphrey) for a career in the world's oldest profession. Piper Laurie delivers a typically grand performance as a judge, but director Peter Levin is overwhelmed by the too corny and overly melodramatic script.

Featuring three miscast stars and a pedestrian script, this uninspiring drama focuses on the battle for Stalingrad, one of the turning points of the Second World War. According to director Jean-Jacques Annaud's version of events, the lengthy conflict (summer 1942 to February 1943) boiled down to a sniper duel between legendary Russian shepherd Vassily Zaitsev (Jude Law) and German nobleman Major König (Ed Harris). Unfortunately, Annaud dilutes the psychological aspects of their confrontation and the four suspenseful sniper sequences with a dramatically undernourished romantic subplot involving Rachel Weisz. Saddled with a spectacularly awful script and a director clearly more concerned with epic visuals, Law, Weisz and Joseph Fiennes (as Soviet propaganda genius Danilov) fail to rise to the occasion, a central flaw magnified when acting heavyweight Harris takes command of the screen. Great to look at, but torture to listen to, Annaud's overlong history lesson is a prime example of how not to make a war movie.
