Die Hard

Die Hard
  • 1988
  • US
  • 131 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John McTiernan
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

Home Alone
  • 3 stars
  • 1990
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus
  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, Catherine O'Hara

Peter and Kate McCallister (Heard and O'Hara) have an eight-year-old brat and wisely – albeit accidentally – leave him behind in Chicago when they go on holiday to Paris. Left to his own devices young Kevin (Culkin) has to deal with two bungling burglars (Pesci and Stern) who threaten to invade his peaceful haven. Jolly, if sadistic, scare-comedy antics produced by teen flick veteran John Hughes.

It's A Wonderful Life

It's A Wonderful Life
  • 5 stars
  • 1946
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

  • 2012
  • Norway
  • 118 min
  • Directed by: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
  • Cast: Pål Sverre Hagen, Anders Baasmo Christiansen, Odd-Magnus Williamson

Based on the true story of Thor Heyerdahl (Hagen)'s epic voyage from Peru to Polynesia, undertaken with a small crew on a primitive wooden raft just to prove that it could be done. A sincere, stirring enterprise, with breathtaking images of piercing blue skies, crystal clear waters and bronzed adventurers, if a little on the safe side.

Mr Turner
  • 5 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 150 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson

Portrait of the last 25 years of the life of painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (Spall). A work of great beauty, wit and poignancy, presenting the artist as unapologetically gruff but sympathetic and spectacularly eccentric. Leigh's latest demonstrates a command of his craft to rival that of his subject.
