  • 1989
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Thomas F Wilson, Lea Thompson, Elisabeth Shue

Finishing with a big tease sequence of highlights for the mid-1990 scheduled Back to the Future Part 3, this could be the longest movie trailer in Hollywood history. Once again Michael has to outfox Biff, this time zooming forwards as well as backwards in the time machine. Directed and played with terrific verve, 'BTF2' moves so fast from one set-piece to the next that there's no time to reflect on the basic ridiculousness of the plot.

  • 1990
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Mary Steenburgen, Thomas F Wilson, Lea Thompson

After the elongated trailer of 'BTF2' we're back in 1885 for the third and absolutely final instalment of the series, in which Michael has to face up to longstanding enemy Biff and save the Doc from certain death, except that the latter is much more interested in falling for Mary Steenburgen. The end result is not quite a bad film, but, as with almost every other sequel of a sequel there's an overall slackness which prevents it from lifting off in the way that it should. In almost every sense, we've been here before.

GoodFellas
  • 1990
  • US
  • 2h 25min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Braco, Paul Sorvino.

Liotta plays Henry Hill, a real-life mafioso, with De Niro as his mentor in crime. And while the bullets, fists and carving knives fly, Scorsese brings us back to that unavoidable question – yes, it's glamorous and lucrative to live this way, but can anyone really live with the consequences? Winner of BAFTA awards for best film, director and screenplay, and a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Joe Pesci.

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets
  • 2002
  • US / UK
  • 2h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

It's the boy-wizard's second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where evil forces have released a vicious serpent into the corridors. In line with JK Rowling's book, the second film is darker than the first. It's perhaps somewhat over-long, but the combination of old-fashioned kids' storytelling and blockbuster budget special effects make for something more pleasing than standard Hollywood eye candy.

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban
  • 2004
  • US
  • 2h 22min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Alfonso Cuarón
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

It is the summer before Harry's third year at Hogwarts, and he has heard that it is Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), a renegade wizard, is the Prisoner of Azkaban. What Harry doesn't suspect is that Black has escaped and is coming after him. Expectations are riding high for Harry Potter 3, with a new director in Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá También), and a darker, more complex book to adapt. There is enough dark humour, spectacular effects and appealing performances to keep you trapped in the franchise. But Harry's new adventure is also ponderous and overlong, regular Potter screenwriter Steven Kloves' confusing, rambling, structurally incoherent script, in which characters appear and disappear and plot turns are never realised, keeps the door firmly closed on this private club.

DiCaprio stars as Don Cobb, a thief who is the master of the art of extraction, stealing secrets from the minds of the unconscious. The business is risky and has resulted the loss of everything he once held dear. Now he is being offered a chance of redemption, but at a cost, and up against a dangerous enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

  • 2h 7min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, Wayne Knight

A group of scientists are invited to give their approval to a theme park filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs, but the giant reptiles are soon running amok. Top-notch computer effects ensure that the dinosaurs themselves are terrifyingly believable (more so than the PG certificate would suggest), but by the half-way point, it's more or less a chase movie with superior technology.

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

  • US / NZ
  • 3h 30min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Billy Boyd, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Christopher Lee

A remarkable end to a remarkable series of films, the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum is the pièce de résistance of the trilogy. The tension-filled journey forces both Gollum and Sam to show their true colours as Frodo suffers under the burden of the ring. All around is war as Aragorn fights to reclaim what is rightfully his. Jackson's vision is awesome. The Return of the King is some kind of beautiful, some kind of masterpiece. Unmissable.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
  • 2001

  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Ian Holm

At long last, a sword and sorcery adventure that really delivers the goods. JRR Tolkien's great achievement was to create an English mythology, located in a fantastical yet believable world. Jackson's great achievement is to bring the author's 1000 page tome to life, not merely realising the fantastic elements with special effects spectacle (though they are 'very' spectacular), but through storytelling flare and marvellous performances from his cast. Visceral and breathtakingly dramatic, The Fellowship of the Ring is an inspired labour of love and a monumental achievement.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
  • 2002
  • US / New Zealand
  • 2h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, Viggo Mortensen, Andy Serkis, Liv Tyler, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Orlando Bloom, Bernard Hill, Christopher Lee, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, Karl Urban, David Wenham, Brad Dourif

The second part of Jackson's ambitious three-part adaptation of JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy adventure might lack the storytelling verve of the first film, but in terms of spectacle it takes blockbuster filmmaking to the next level. Continuing where 'The Fellowship of the Ring' left off, without any recap of the story so far, 'The Two Towers' follows three separate plotlines: Frodo's trek to Modor to destroy the ring, his fellow Hobbits' meeting with the Ents (walking, talking trees) and the human/elf/dwarf combo Aragon, Legolas and Gimili's part in the siege of the human stronghold Helm's Deep by the evil wizard Sauraman's 10,000-strong army. The latter provides the hour-long climax to the film, and it's an awesome thing to behold. But Frodo's meeting with the ring's previous owner, Gollum, also impresses – here's a fully computer animated character that generates as much emotion as any of the living performers. The film suffers from being the second act of Tolkien's tale, but for Jackson's three hour film vision, there's no way around that.

My Spy

My Spy
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Segal
  • Cast: Dave Bautista, Kristen Schaal, Ken Jeong

JJ (Bautista) is a CIA agent who when carrying out surveillance is befriended by nine-year-old Sophie (Coleman). Amiably lightweight but all-too-disposable family comedy which seems to have been assembled with warmed-up elements of other films; it doesn't do tough very well, but isn't notably warm & fuzzy either.

In a now prohibitively expensive part of London, Grant's lowly bookseller literally bumps into Roberts' film star. Thereafter, they engage in romantic pursuits and eventually put class and culture clashes aside to live happily ever after. The leads don't strain themselves, but Richard Curtis' script is filled with witty jokes, particularly about national stereotypes.

Banged up for a crime he didn't commit (ain't they all?) quiet man Robbins plans a slow but effective revenge on the unnecessarily harsh prison regime. Freeman excels as the fellow con with an uncanny knack for procuring desired items. The film is certainly overlong, but the apocryphal feel to the storytelling and the period detail are well handled in what is, ultimately, a very fine movie indeed.

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.

In 2029 machines have all but conquered the planet but a saviour is at hand in the form of a new human leader.

In a reprogrammed role that said much about his changed image since the first movie, Arnie becomes the underdog fighting to protect mother and child from another more advanced cyborg. With an element of uncontrived human compassion lurking throughout the gloriously expensive action sequences, as Schwarzenegger's cyborg develops human feelings, this is more than just a $100 million fairground ride.
