A respectable, sincere film of Robert Bolt's literate play, with Scofield as Sir Thomas More, endorsing the divine right of the Pope over and above his King, Henry VIII, who wishes to divorce Katherine Of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn. Watch out for Orson Welles in a marvellous cameo as Cardinal Wolsey. The film won 6 Oscars. find out more...
AMADEUS (1984)

CertificationPG Our Rating

An award winning film full of baroque splendour. The talented composer Antonio Salieri found himself in competition with Mozart, a genius, and he couldn't understand why God favored such a vulgar creature to be his instrument. Salieri turned into a hate-filled monster, whose aim in life became to ruin his colleague, but he emerges as a tragic and sympathetic character. He alone could appreciate the perfection of Mozart's music and, perhaps, he speaks up for all of us whose talents fall short of find out more...

CHICAGO (2002)

Certification12 Our Rating

1920's Chicago is a pretty kicking place, and nightclub sensation Velma Kelley is the hottest ticket around; but when she comes out the winner in a bit of fatal domestic violence she finds herself banged up with only slick celebrity lawyer Billy Flynn to save her. A fellow inmate in the clink is stardom hungry Roxie Hart, a woman who would like nothing more than to wrest Velam's crown from her. Chicago is a real showbiz song and dance extravaganza, think Moulin Rouge with more glitz and more fun find out more...
GANDHI (1982)

The object of this massive tribute died as he had always lived, without wealth, without property, without official title or office. Mahatma Gandhi was not the commander of armies, nor the ruler of vast lands, he could not boast any scientific achievement or artistic gift, yet men, governments, dignitaries from all over the world, have joined hands today to pay homage to the little brown man in the loin cloth who led his country to freedom. This quote is from his funeral, one of the greatest s find out more...

A great general, victorious in battle and loved by the Roman people, Maximus finds himself enslaved by the twisted and psychopathic emperor to be, Commodus. The proud General is reduced to a common gladiator, but his extraordinary prowess in the Arena brings him back to Rome and a vengeful showdown with Commodus.

This remains one of the greatest screen versions of the tortured play, though it does look rather over-played by modern standards. The late Olivier gives one of his greatest performances - indeed this is the performance that first ranked him amongst the very greatest of actors.

Frodo and Sam make their last push towards Mount Doom where they must destroy the ring and bring about the end of Sauron's spreading darkness. Aragorn finally acknowledges his role as the peoples King and Gandalf gets a lot of repressed anger off his chest in the many battles against the dark lord's minions.
