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

Set in the snowy urban wastes of Stockholm in the early 1980s, this Swedish vampire movie proves unexpectedly moving. It's a curious love story between bullied 12-year-old Oskar (Kare Hedebrant) and Eli (Lina Leandersson), a doe-eyed little girl who hides a dark secret. Based on John Ajvide Lindqvist's bestselling novel, Let the Right One In develops into a muted meditation on violence and vengeance as bloodsucker Eli convinces Oskar to strike back at his tormentors. Director Tomas Alfredson coaxes fragile performances from his two young leads (Leandersson, frequently framed like the subject of a Renaissance portrait, is astonishing). It's undeniably frightening - much grisly bloodletting ensues as Eli's middle-aged helper Hakan (Per Ragnar) drains local youths of their haemoglobin - yet Alfredson's light touch adds soulful delicacy and a certain ambiguity to the proceedings, making this a horror movie more likely to prompt tears than screams.

In this routine crime tale, Jeepers Creepers star Gina Philips plays an unmarried career woman who suffers escalating torment when she gives birth to an apparently stillborn baby. Suspected of infanticide, she teams up with the child's father (Warren Christie) to clear her name. But their resulting amateur detective work comes together far too easily, making the film feel rushed and contrived. Most damaging, however, is the lack of dramatic intensity, as pedestrian direction and unconvincing performances - especially from Philips - dilute the in-built poignancy of the "parents' worst nightmare" scenario. Against-the-clock tension in the last third keeps things watchable, though even that could have been done better.

George Macready (Gilda, Paths of Glory) is the town tyrant who evokes the arcane Apex Rule, whereby if a mineral vein runs through his land, the owners of the territory containing the head of the vein have to surrender their rights. Of course, he's not going to get away with that. Unfortunately, he fails to recognise that his hired gun, Skip Homeier (Tomorrow the World), isn't actually the killer he thinks he is. A pacey, colourful B-western from Republic, this is shot in their cheap widescreen process, Naturama, and directed with conviction by house hack Joe Kane.

Remembered today for its rollicking good humour and the fabulous Marlene Dietrich performing See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have, this is one of those comedy westerns that has universal appeal. Here's lanky and lovable James Stewart as Tom Destry, who manages to clean up the lawless town of Bottleneck by using a slow drawl rather than a quick draw. Chief villain is scowling, snide Brian Donlevy, and there's marvellous character support from Mischa Auer, Charles Winninger and Allen Jenkins. Dietrich, cast against type, and Stewart, in his first western lead, strike sparks off one another (and in real life, too!), and the cat-fight between Dietrich and Una Merkel has never been bettered. Director George Marshall keeps well back, and some may find his style rather flat, but he served his players perfectly and created a comedy classic. There are three other screen versions of the Max Brand novel, but none is as good.

This absolutely wonderful comedy thriller from Stanley Donen (co-director, with Gene Kelly, of On the Town and Singin' in the Rain) nearly out-Hitchcocks Hitchcock. With a MacGuffin so clever you'll never guess, and a dream pairing of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn on ravishing Parisian locations, what more could you possibly want in the way of movie entertainment? There's a clever plot (by Peter Stone) that never lets up, a marvellous romantic score (by Henry Mancini), star-making turns from Walter Matthau and James Coburn, and some magnificent set pieces: Grant taking a shower fully-clothed; Hepburn and Grant falling in love on a Paris river boat; and a one-handed villain in a roof-top cliffhanger. This terrific movie's got the lot. Jonathan Demme directed a disastrous remake in 2002, with Mark Wahlberg and Thandie Newton in the lead roles.

Zoltan Korda makes little effort to disguise the fact that this is a remake of his 1939 classic The Four Feathers. The script is the same RC Sherriff, Lajos BirĂ³ and Arthur Wimperis adaptation of AEW Mason's classic adventure novel, while some of the original location footage is also included, distorted to fit the new picture's CinemaScope format. Co-director Terence Young helps bring a touch of pizzazz to the action sequences, yet the story, about an officer who's branded a coward but who subsequently proves to have more pluck than his pals, has dated badly, and the cast seems very aware of the fact.

The postwar British film industry relied heavily on "now the story can be told" accounts of engagements that helped turn the Second World War in favour of the Allies. Too many were smug action adventures that devalued the true heroism of the exploits they depicted, but this fine film fully captures the tensions, dangers and complexities of battle by concentrating on the unsung back-room planners as much as on the combatants themselves. There are necessary caricatures on both sides, but at the same time there is a respect for the enemy that is missing in many previous flag-wavers. An unusually restrained Kenneth More is first-rate as director of operations at the Admiralty.

For those who haven't heard of her, Julia Child was America's answer to Fanny Cradock, and she's played here with hilarious gusto by Meryl Streep. Following separate timelines, the film details Child's experiences in late 1940s Paris which led to the 1961 publication of her seminal book Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and the year - four decades later - that contemporary New Yorker Julie Powell spends cooking all of its 524 recipes. A frustrated writer, Powell (played by an amusingly angsty Amy Adams) recorded her exploits in a blog that eventually became a bestseller in its own right, and is the joint source of inspiration for the script along with Child's own memoirs. Powell's story is a fun-filled mission that will appeal to a new generation of Nigella wannabes, while Child has a few lessons to impart to the modern woman trying to balance personal and professional ambitions. This is a warm and welcome refreshment from writer/director Nora Ephron following the undernourishing experience of Bewitched in 2005.

Robert Redford is in reformist mode here as a progressive warden, determined to oust brutality and corruption from a state prison farm. Director Stuart Rosenberg (Cool Hand Luke) piles on the agony with sequences of bleak action, while the acting - especially from Jane Alexander and Yaphet Kotto - is formidable enough to take on all that social responsibility. It's a touch downbeat, and at times ponderous and sanctimonious, but this prison drama still sounds a shrill warning and sends out an ominous message to those who care about what society does with its misfits. Watch out, too, for an early pre-stardom appearance by Morgan Freeman as a fearsome inmate.

When Bruce Lee died suddenly in 1973, the industry he helped bring to a wider audience lost no time in churning out a string of shabby, vaguely tasteless exploitation pieces. This is one of the best known of his posthumous releases and one of the worst. The Lee character - predominantly stand-in Kim Tai Jong - finds himself up against a ruthless gangster (Dean Jagger), who kidnaps his girlfriend (Colleen Camp). The makers originally claimed the film would be drawing on 100 minutes of never-before-seen footage, but precious little seems to have made it to the screen and, apart from a beautifully edited end sequence featuring Lee at his best, this is an embarrassing mess. Inevitably, Chuck Norris is in there, too.

The Sixth Sense director M Night Shyamalan's follow-up to Lady in the Water is a daft marriage of disaster thriller and 1970s eco-horror. It begins intriguingly enough with American cities afflicted by a sudden and inexplicable breakdown in human behaviour. But unlike 28 Days Later..., the violence comes in the form of self-destruction, as people commit mass suicide in a variety of shocking ways. Philadelphia science teacher Mark Wahlberg and his wife Zooey Deschanel hope to avoid the chaos by heading for the country, but soon find they can't be safe if they don't know who or what is causing the attacks. There's nothing exciting about this drawn-out tale of collective paranoia among an oddball group of survivors. Shyamalan's arch script moves from reasonably thoughtful hysteria to just hysterically funny - with Wahlberg conducting a lunatic conversation with a plastic pot plant. It's further evidence of the director's descent from the master of the paranormal plot twist into utter silliness.

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.
