3/5 91% La Bamba (1987) Most pop biopics are tepid affairs, but the same cannot be said for director Luis Valdez's engrossing re-creation of Ritchie Valens's short life.‐ Radio Times

2/5 27% Ned Kelly (Ned Kelly, Outlaw) (1970) The blame has to be laid at the door of director Tony Richardson, whose handling sometimes obscures the message and buries the drama.‐ Radio Times

2/5 27% Lionheart (1991) Van Damme gawps blankly, as if trying to remember the simplest lines is a particularly tricky task ...‐ Radio Times

5/5 91% A Short Film About Killing (1988) Kieslowski, arguably Poland's greatest contemporary director, was a true master of narrative construction, and many of his thoughtful compositions linger long in the memory.‐ Radio Times

3/5 69% Never Say Never Again (1983) The plot, which owes much to Thunderball, lurches badly at times, but the wild action set pieces, decked out in gals, gadgets and glib lines, are there to be cherished.‐ Radio Times

4/5 95% Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) Should your front room be in need of redecoration, then Elizabeth Taylor's performance here is guaranteed to strip the paint off the walls with just one verbal volley.‐ Radio Times

4/5 85% Bugsy (1991) While avoiding the usual gangster film clichés, director Barry Levinson also insists that Warren Beatty does more than coast through this movie on matinée idol looks and easy charm.‐ Radio Times

2/5 6% Mobsters (1991) It is extraordinary that, with gangster-era America providing such a natural source of drama, director Michael Karbelnikoff should turn gritty reality into such an empty tale.‐ Radio Times

1/5 15% The Karate Kid, Part III (1989) The script takes leave of reality at an early stage, and it all becomes increasingly daft and humourless with each scene.‐ Radio Times

3/5 46% The Babe (1992) John Goodman perfectly captures the hero's commitment, enthusiasm, insecurity and weaknesses, and helps distract from the fact that the film is episodic, not cinematic.‐ Radio Times

1/5 4% Wired (1989) This crude low-budget exploiter is one of the most grotesque character assassinations ever put on film.‐ Radio Times

4/5 94% Rocky (1976) This triple-Oscar-winning boxing drama is shot through with genuine impassioned commitment, born of the fact that Sylvester Stallone realised that this was his best hope of stardom.‐ Radio Times

5/5 98% Annie Hall (1977) Although Woody Allen had still to acquire great technical strength as a film-maker, this was the movie where he found his own singular voice, a voice that echoes across events with a mixture of exuberance and introspection.‐ Radio Times

4/5 80% Lethal Weapon (1987) Implausibility is a large part of the entertainment in this romp par excellence, with each overblown set piece becoming ever more ludicrous.‐ Radio Times

4/5 97% Bull Durham (1988) A smart, witty character piece that eschews the stale sports flick formul‐ Radio Times

5/5 83% Chariots of Fire (1981) Unfairly dismissed by some as an empty exercise in cheap schmaltz, this has an old-fashioned innocence that celebrates the human spirit with a lot of careful detail.‐ Radio Times
