    Good, tight action with a surprising number of laughs and Tom Cruise doing what he does best - being Tom Cruise.

    Overlong in the same way that the prostitute in 'Total Recall' has too many breasts - if you love breasts/Peter Jackson's imagining of Tolkein's world, then there's no such thing as too many boobs/too much Middle Earth. Martin Freeman IS Bilbo Baggins!

    Raiders of the Lost Ark


    Saw this for the first time on it's original release in Summer 1981 and it's still my favourite film (as well as the greatest action adventure film) of all time. Not a single wasted frame of film or line of dialogue from the opening 'Paramount' logo dissolve to following the shadowy adventurer's silhouette to the riverside reveal as Dr. Henry Jones Jr, all the way to the downbeat final shot. A true classic, unlikely ever to be surpassed in the action/adventure genre even by it's creator, the master himself, Steven Spielberg.
