Retrospective Reviews

Kong: Skull Island (2017) Review - King Kong movie 'Kong: Skull Island', from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, is a handsomely made picture with glorious visuals and an all-star cast. Review by Kieran Judge.
Ghostbusters (2016) Review - In a vacuum, without the context of social media, 'Ghostbusters' (2016) is a perfectly reasonable way to spend 116 minutes. Kristen Wiig leads an ensemble. Review by Martha Lane.
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) Review - Francis Ford Coppola and Gary Oldman gave vampires a whole new look in 'Bram Stoker's Dracula', but it's the same story we know and love. Review by Margaret Roarty.
Dead Ringers (1988) Review - David Cronenberg's 1988 psychological horror 'Dead Ringers', starring Jeremy Irons in a dual lead role, is one of the director's richest and most layered films. Review by Sam Sewell-Peterson.
Moonlight (2016) Review - Best Picture winner 'Moonlight' (2016) is an experience we all must have, a film as truthful as the skin on your palm. Barry Jenkins directs a rich ensemble. Review by Bella Madge.
The Sound of Music (1965) Review - Acclaimed movie musical 'The Sound of Music' (1965), Robert Wise's Oscars Best Picture winner starring Julie Andrews, is a memorable gem that never loses its staying power. Review by Alannah Purslow.



Rebecca (1940) Review - Alfred Hitchcock's only film to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, 'Rebecca' (1940) is not exactly perfect but it's certainly damn close. Review by Kieran Judge.
The Wizard of Oz (1939) Review - 'The Wizard of Oz' (1939) remains an impressive filmmaking achievement almost a century on from its release. Victor Fleming directs Judy Garland in timeless technicolour. Review by Clotilde Chinnici.
In the Heat of the Night (1967) Review - Trailblazing Oscars Best Picture winner 'In the Heat of the Night' (1967) starring Sidney Poitier feels tame by today's standards, but still shines a spotlight on inequality. Review by Martha Lane.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) Review - 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' (1975), from director Miloš Forman and starring Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher, won the Big Five Oscars. It is immortal. Review by Kieran Judge.
