Barefoot in the Park (1967)   3/53/53/53/53/5

106 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Maybe it's just me but "Barefoot in the Park" makes me think of a Doris Day movie but less virginal and more sexy, well Jane Fonda in just her bra is sexier than Doris Day in a nightie. It has than sense of comedy as the slig...

The Hot Rock

The Hot Rock (1972)   4/54/54/54/54/5

101 mins     Action , Comedy, Crime      

I have a simple question, why isn't "The Hot Rock" better known because it is above average when it comes to the genre or should that be genres. I say genres because this is a heist movie crossed with caper movie as one botch...

The Way We Were

The Way We Were (1973)   3/53/53/53/53/5

118 mins     Drama, Romance      

I've watched "The Way We Were" a few times now and every time I am surprised by what a simple movie it is. It's simple because this is a movie purely about two people who are so in love but want such different things it can n...

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby (1974)   3/53/53/53/53/5

144 mins     Drama, Romance      

As a Brit who went through the British school system F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" was not part of the curriculum and in many ways this sort of puts me at and advantage when it comes to watching Jack Clayton's 1974...

The Electric Horseman

The Electric Horseman (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

122 mins     Comedy, Drama, Western      

I don't know about you but if someone suggested to you a movie which was a western, romantic-comedy with heart I would probably not want to watch despite liking all those elements. It just sounds messy especially when you mix...

Out of Africa

Out of Africa (1985)   3/53/53/53/53/5

161 mins     Adventure , Biography, Drama      

I am so torn when it comes to "Out of Africa" because visually the movie is great, the musical score is great and unsurprising with a cast lead by Meryl Streep and Robert Redford the performances are great. But then there is ...

116 mins     Comedy, Crime, Romance      

Starting off on a tangent there is a scene in "Legal Eagles" where Tom Logan is in bed and you suddenly realise what a hairy bloke Robert Redford is, from thick hair on his arms to even thicker hair on his chest. Yes I know t...

Sneakers

Sneakers (1992)   3/53/53/53/53/5

126 mins     Action , Drama, Thriller      

"Sneakers" is quite an enjoyable but a little dated thriller, which is fun and energetic as well as having some excellent moments of tension. Released back in 1992 there are some great references to how America and Russia wer...

Indecent Proposal

Indecent Proposal (1993)   3/53/53/53/53/5

117 mins     Drama, Romance      

"Indecent Proposal" is a surprisingly clever movie; on the surface it poses the question would you let a loved one sleep with someone for a price. But it then examines the consequences of that, the emotional trauma for the hu...

The Horse Whisperer

The Horse Whisperer (1998)   4/54/54/54/54/5

170 mins     Drama, Romance      

"The Horse Whisperer" is the sort of movie you need to watch when all you have watched is one mediocre movie after another and it's getting to you. Not because it is a classic but because it has heart and is made by someone w...

Spy Game

Spy Game (2001)   4/54/54/54/54/5

126 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

Sit down, strap in and get ready for a rollercoaster ride - a typical comment you could throw at many of the movies which had Tony Scott at the helm and one justified when it comes to "Spy Game". In fact "Spy Game" reminds me...

The Clearing

The Clearing (2004)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Drama, Mystery, Thriller      

Writer and director Pieter Jan Brugge must have thought he'd struck gold when he got Robert Redford, Helen Mirren and Willem Dafoe to star in his movie. And to be honest it is that trio of names more than anything else which ...

An Unfinished Life

An Unfinished Life (2005)   4/54/54/54/54/5

108 mins     Drama      

It makes me smile when I watch something like "An Unfinished Life" not just because it is a good movie but because of the way people treat it. What I mean by that is here we have a drama set on a ranch where an old cowboy who...
