Fascinating documentary about Rodriguez, a 70's folk singer who made two albums that flopped and then, as legend has it, committed suicide on stage.In South Africa, the singer was a superstar and two fans decide to find out the truth about the man, finding that the legends are false. A perfect example of the power of the documentary.
Another early entry from the Carry On team have a scaled-down cast with only regulars Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtrey on board for this romp around the oceans during the war against the Spanish Armada. Bernard Cribbins and Juliet Mills enjoy the silliness of the script which isn't as innuendo filled as usual but has plenty of gentle British laughs to enjoy.
A glorious, crowd-pleasing live action revamp of the 1990 Disney classic animation, with Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. Big, lavish musical numbers bring a smile to the face, and although enormously entertaining, the CGI lets the side down with a distracting beast. Luke Evans and Josh Gad steal the show as Gaston and his camp companion, Le Fou. Delightful.
This first sequel to the B-movie The Fast & The Furious is lacking the lunacy that has filled the later sequels and looks rather flat and boring in comparison. Paul Walker returns (less Vin Diesel) to take on a Miami drugs lord with the help from Tyrese Gibson and some fast cars. John Singleton directs and it's hard to believe that this is the same man who gave us Boyz N The Hood.
Perfectly charming tale from India, about a lunchbox that is delivered to the wrong person, triggering a long distance friendship between a lonely mother and an accountant on the verge of retiring. Nicely played, it wins you over with its simplicity with the two leads oozing charisma, while the unseen Auntie from upstairs almost steals the film. Delightful.
Plot wise this might be a mess and the warblings of Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood may not be up to the standard of other musicals yet there is something extremely fun watching two of the screen's hardest men singing about Wandrin' Stars and talking to trees. The energy from all is infectious and it's a perfect way to pass a Sunday afternoon.
Classic musical drama about the ups and downs of a Broadway production with an ill director, a temperamental lead actress and a naive newcomer. This realistic look at theatre life includes the now famous 20-minute show routine directed by Busby Berkley.With plenty of biting, sassy dialogue, this was the film that saved Warner Bros and it's just as good now as it was in the 30's.
Blake Edwards' celebrated sex comedy still manages to create a smile as Dudley Moore goes through the mid-life crisis and finds he has fallen for newly-wed Bo Derek. A heady mix of slapstick and adult conversation, it may feel slightly dated due to Henry Mancini's easy listening soundtrack but thanks to Moore's comic timing, the laughs are still there.
