Die Hard provided such a perfectly structured action-movie template that Hollywood has been reluctant to leave the idea alone; cue this silly but hugely enjoyable airborne thriller. Wesley Snipes plays the security expert who finds himself on the same aeroplane as obligatory British master criminal Bruce Payne, temporarily in police custody. Of course, Payne's henchmen have hitched a lift as well and when they duly free him, it's up to Snipes to save the day. Despite the hand-me-down plot and dialogue, director Kevin Hooks manages to wring the requisite suspense out of some expertly staged action set pieces. He is helped enormously by charismatic turns from Snipes and Payne, and a solid supporting cast that includes Tom Sizemore, Bruce Greenwood and a then little-known Elizabeth Hurley.

With nods to cult British horror Death Line and John Landis's An American Werewolf in London, Christopher Smith's debut feature is an entertaining ghost-train ride through subterranean hazards and hidden laboratory terrors. A late journey on the London Underground turns into a nightmare for a chic PR girl (played by Run Lola Run's Franka Potente) when she falls asleep on a platform and finds herself trapped underground. An attempted rape sends her further into the dank, dark tunnels where something even more dangerous and monstrous lurks. Tautly directed by Smith and well-anchored by a barnstorming turn from Potente, this often brutal tale of Tube terror does exactly what it's meant to: creep you out with sudden shocks, eerie atmospherics and gory thrills.

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.

Nuance was not Donald Wolfit's strong suit, but he had presence and power in spades. He totally dominates this story with a bluster and conviction that keeps an uninspiring tale of the hunt for a Second World War traitor from falling flat on its face. As he showed in Operation Amsterdam, writer/director Michael McCarthy had a splendid sense of place, but no talent whatsoever for generating and sustaining suspense. It was a smart move casting Wolfit, Christopher Lee and Anton Diffring as a trio of shifty-looking suspects, but it all too quickly becomes clear in which direction the finger is pointing.

It was in Malta, when shooting this picture, that Bryan Forbes coined his nickname for Richard Attenborough. "Bunter" he called him and "Bunter" he remained, owing to Attenborough's addiction to chocolate. Nowadays that little piece of trivia is of rather more significance than the movie, which is a juvenile comedy about an Italian baby smuggled aboard HMS Gillingham while the ship is docked in Naples. Joining Attenborough and Forbes in the cast are John Mills (of course) and Michael Hordern, who plays the captain. It's all too twee for words and the single joke is stretched almost beyond endurance.

Brightly played and breezily directed by Kevin Connor, this is a pleasant way to pass the time.

Blown off course by turbulence, he crashes his sleigh into Scrooge-like TV reporter Steven Eckholdt's car and suffers amnesia. However, it takes young Max Morrow to realise the implications of Santa's condition and the race to save the festivities begins. As you'd expect of a Hollywood seasonal movie, it's awash with sentimentality and the good old capitalist spirit of giving and receiving. But director William Dear has too much experience to let it descend into mush.

The fourth screen version of Jean Webster's novel, this time with a perfectly cast Fred Astaire, who literally glides his way through the tissue-thin plot about an orphan falling for her playboy benefactor. This could be tasteless, bearing in mind the vast age gap, but since it's a musical and the delightful Leslie Caron is the girl - well, in the words of the movie's Oscar-nominated song by Johnny Mercer, Something's Gotta Give. Interestingly, this was released when rock 'n' roll was at its peak, and features the great Astaire doing the Sluefoot. (Watch Astaire's face: he's not joking.) A charming, old-fashioned musical with Fred Clark, Thelma Ritter and Terry Moore providing excellent support.

Arnold Schwarzenegger opted for an unusual change of pace for his directorial debut - this remake of a sugary old Christmas favourite from 1945. Sadly, it needs some of the firepower that Schwarzenegger brings to his blockbuster action movies, as this is routine fare, updated with too little imagination for the 1990s. Dyan Cannon, in the role originally played by Barbara Stanwyck, is entertaining and believable as the TV presenter who decides to take heroic ranger Kris Kristofferson into her home for Christmas as a publicity stunt, but Schwarzenegger has upped the saccharine content of the tale to unacceptable levels. Further down the cast, Tony Curtis and Richard Roundtree work hard to try to make this digestible.

This boisterous inaugural feature from Sony Pictures Animation won't give Pixar any sleepless nights, but it does have a simplistic appeal. Co-directed by The Lion King film-maker Roger Allers, it's a familiar, computer-generated eco-fable in which domesticated grizzly bear Boog (voiced by Martin Lawrence) sees his pampered existence as a mountain-town tourist attraction cut short when he befriends a mischievous deer (a fantastic Ashton Kutcher). In a hilarious set piece, the duo cause so much mess in a convenience store that Boog eventually ends up released back into the wilderness - three days before the hunting season. What follows is a predictable lesson about man's destruction of nature, boosted by quick-fire banter, brightly coloured visuals and plenty of scatological humour for children. The pace slackens in the second third, hampered by narrative clichés and some weakly stereotypical supporting characters, though it picks up with gusto for a final imaginative animal/hunter showdown.

Think Dances with Wolves in space (and in 3D) and you'll have the measure of this blockbuster from James Cameron, his first full feature since Titanic a dozen years earlier. Sam Worthington stars as a paraplegic US marine drafted to distant planet Pandora to gain the trust of the Na'vi, the blue-skinned indigenous race whose homeland lies above a large deposit of a rare and valuable mineral. There's nothing groundbreaking about the plot, with many of Cameron's favourite themes in evidence: trigger-happy marines; love in a time of chaos; man alone in a hostile environment. Sigourney Weaver is abrasive as a brash scientist, and with CCH Pounder and Wes Studi as the Na'vi clan's matriarch and patriarch, there's no shortage of acting talent to grapple with the lengthy script. And yet, as a motion-captured Worthington - controlling an alien body (or Avatar) through telepathy - is tutored in the clan's mystical ways by chief's daughter Zoë Saldana, it's the breathtakingly beautiful CGI landscape that somehow pulls the audience in on this tale of profit and progress versus nature's power and infinite variety.

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.

The subconscious mind becomes a deadly maze for Leonardo DiCaprio in this wildly inventive psychological thriller from Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). DiCaprio stars as Cobb, a corporate spy who steals secrets from other people's dreams, but begins to lose his grip when tasked by a business mogul (Ken Watanabe) with implanting a destructive idea in the mind of the heir to an energy empire (Cillian Murphy). Their thoughts are in conflict, producing incredible, ethereal action scenes akin to The Matrix. Cobb is aided by a team of specialists, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao and Ellen Page. However, he is also fighting himself and projections of his wife (Marion Cotillard) that threaten to plunge him into oblivion, and these scenes give the film a true sense of urgency. Emotional intimacy is lacking, with some characters functioning merely as devices to explain an increasingly complicated scenario, but there's no doubt that Nolan (who also directed the equally elliptical Memento) knows how to craft an enthralling brainteaser.

An all-female caving expedition goes horribly wrong in this brilliantly constructed panic attack from director Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers). Six friends end up in an uncharted subterranean system and encounter a monstrous cannibal race, but desperation, betrayals and imploding relationships prove as fatal to the girls as the flesh-eating threat. From the high-impact opening shock to the poignantly bleak ending, this underground Deliverance is designed to cause maximum stress in anyone remotely claustrophobic, vertiginous or afraid of the dark. Marshall's expert choreography of the creepy "crawler" creatures provides the extra terror, while they provide the full-on skin-slicing gore. As a writer and director he has a keen understanding of what makes the horror genre tick, and overturns the usual conventions with canny wit. Super-scary and vicious, both psychologically and physically, this cleverly produced chill-ride is edgy British horror at its very best.

This is a suspenseful and - the faint-hearted take note - often disturbing re-creation of the crimes, capture and psychoanalysis of Albert DeSalvo (played here by Tony Curtis), who confessed to being the notorious Boston Strangler, the killer of 13 women in the early 1960s. Though doubt has since been cast on De Salvo's confession (he was never charged with the crimes due to lack of evidence, but was jailed for unrelated sex offences), this film is an authentic-feeling account. Director Richard Fleischer deftly captures the pensive atmosphere of a frightened city with a stark, documentary-style approach that makes good use of split-screen sequences. As an all-star line-up of lawmen tightens the net around the elusive maniac, Curtis proves beyond doubt he could act with a nuanced performance of considerable depth and power.

Stanley Kubrick's penultimate film is a harrowing, foul-mouthed and violent Vietnam War drama. But, unlike the rainforest horrors of Apocalypse Now or Platoon, Kubrick's film begins with a long training camp sequence in America before moving to a bombed-out Vietnamese city. While its message is simple - innocent young Americans are taught to be machine-like killers - its technique is extraordinary. Because Kubrick refused to travel any distance, it was shot entirely in Britain, with palm trees uprooted from Spain and Matthew Modine and a cast of relative unknowns uprooted from Hollywood. Renting a disused gasworks in Beckton, east London, Kubrick created a huge and spectacular outdoor set, though some sequences, it must be said, lack tropical realism. The performances are superb, especially Lee Ermey as the drill sergeant with a colourful vocabulary, Vincent D'Onofrio as the pathetic Private Pyle and Modine as the cynical recruit called Joker.
