The Bodyguard

The Bodyguard
  • 1992
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mick Jackson
  • Written by: Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Kevin Costner, Whitney Houston, Gary Kemp, Bill Cobbs

Costner tries dubious tough guy mode as the personal minder of pop icon Rachel Marron (a good debut by singer Houston), when she is threatened by an obsessive fan. Lawrence Kasdan's script is a complete mess from beginning to end, and the film as a whole is a piece of Hollywood excrement sugared by a topping of romance and chart songs. Avoid.

Casablanca

Casablanca
  • 1942
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Curtiz
  • Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid

You must remember this … Bogart being impossibly noble, Bergman torn between two lovers, Claude Rains playing both ends against the middle, devious Nazis, a fogbound airport, a piano-player tinkling that tune. A wonderful hill of beans.

The Godfather, Part II

The Godfather, Part II
  • 1974
  • US
  • 3h 20min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
  • Cast: Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, Talia Shire, Morgana King, John Cazale, Marianna Hill, Lee Strasberg

Still the only sequel to win the Oscar for Best Picture, Coppola's extended gangster epic looks at the life of the Corleone family before and after the events of the first movie. De Niro is superb as the young Vito, newly arrived from Sicily and making his mark in the Land of the Free; his son Michael (Pacino), now fully corrupted by absolute power, extends his crime empire, but at the expense of killing family and friends. A magnificent achievement.

  • 1978

  • 1h 50min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Randal Kleiser
  • Cast: John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway

Sandy (Newton-John) meets Danny (Travolta) and they have a summer romance, but he doesn't expect to see her turn up at his school the following year. There follows teenage angst, misunderstandings and a joyful reunion. Despite its dubious 'change yourself to attract the person you want to be with' message, it's a good, romp with tons of catchy songs.

National Theatre Live: The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage
  • 2022
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Nicholas Hytner

The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage

By Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery. Directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman's fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.

Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman's parallel universe. Broadcast live from London's Bridge Theatre.
