    Mary Poppins

    ★★★

    Mixed bag of great sequences and cutesy overkill.

  • The Bridge on the River Kwai

    The Bridge on the River Kwai

    ★★★★½

    The gripping final 30 minutes as the dynamiting of the bridge is carried out, is a masterclass of cinematic storytelling.

    Gladiator

    ★★★★½

    What we do in life ... echoes in eternity.

    The ending scene when Maximus walks through Elysian Fields and invisions seeing his family in the distance, with Hans Zimmer's score in the background ... hits different!

  • Lawrence of Arabia

    Lawrence of Arabia

    ★★★★

    No special effects are front and center here, simply the way a master creator of images pulls us into a dramatic story of great psychological complexity.
