G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

118 mins     Action , Adventure , Sci-Fi      

As a Brit my childhood was dominated by Action Man and from what I understand was in some ways the equivalent of the G.I. Joe toy. In some ways that probably helped when watching "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" as I had no expe...

Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest (1999)   4/54/54/54/54/5

102 mins     Action , Comedy, Sci-Fi      

I watched "Galaxy Quest" a few years after it first came out and whilst amusing it left no real lasting impression but on re-watching it more recently I was surprised by how brilliant it is, yes you did hear me use the word b...

Gallipoli

Gallipoli (1981)   4/54/54/54/54/5

110 mins     Adventure , Drama, War      

I'm a bit lost having watched "Gallipoli", not something I like to admit, but it is not the movie I was anticipating because whilst a war movie the actual war element is only the third act, before that we have 2 acts of male ...

Gambit

Gambit (1966)   4/54/54/54/54/5

109 mins     Comedy, Crime      

To be honest I have never been one who is crazy about Michael Caine, there is no doubt that he starred in some great movies but sometimes I felt they were overrated. Fortunately "Gambit" is not one of them as not only does it...

Gambler's Choice

Gambler's Choice (1944)   3/53/53/53/53/5

66 mins     Crime, Drama      

The chances are that if you are going to watch "Gambler's Choice" you are a fan of old movies and as such there is a reasonable chance you will have already seen the likes of "Angels with Dirty Faces" and "Manhattan Melodrama...

The Game Plan

The Game Plan (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

110 mins     Comedy, Family      

"The Game Plan" is on one level enjoyable, Dwayne Johnson delivering comedy and charisma as an unexpected father works. But "The Game Plan" is also as unoriginal as they come throwing at us that exact set-up of a single man s...

The Game

The Game (1997)   3/53/53/53/53/5

128 mins     Thriller      

There is a line in "The Game" where the main character Nicholas Van Orton says "I don't really understand it myself" which pretty much sums up how I feel about "The Game" as it is one of the most confusing movies I have watch...

Gamer

Gamer (2009)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Action , Sci-Fi      

In 1987 we had "The Running Man" with Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Ben Richards who finds himself the innocent man in a brutal game of survival broadcast to the masses. Then in 2007 we got "The Condemned" where we had a grou...

Gang in Blue

Gang in Blue (1996)   3/53/53/53/53/5

97 mins     Action , Crime, Drama, TV Movie      

So "Gang in Blue" is another one of those movies which came out during the 90s which attempted to lift the lid on extremist sections of the American police force who would unjustly and brutally target racial minorities. Now I...

Gangs of New York

Gangs of New York (2002)   4/54/54/54/54/5

160 mins     Crime, Drama      

One of the most interesting things about Martin Scorsese's epic "Gangs of New York" is not that it was yet another movie he never won an Oscar for but that he originally tried to make it back in 1978. The fact that nearly a q...

Garfield

Garfield (2004)   2/52/52/52/52/5

80 mins     Animation, Comedy, Family      

I've always liked reading the Garfield shorts that features in newspapers; the sarcastic wit of the fat feline with attitude is usually clever but most importantly funny. But when it comes to "Garfield" the movie the cleverne...

Garfield 2

Garfield 2 (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

78 mins     Comedy, Family      

When I reviewed the first "Garfield" movie I wasn't impressed and felt that the character worked best in short bursts not for a solid 80 minutes. I guess the studios didn't think so because we got "Garfield 2" or "Garfield: A...

Gaslight

Gaslight (1940)   4/54/54/54/54/5

84 mins     Thriller      

For those who consider remakes a modern blight on the world of cinema should look at Patrick Hamilton's play "Gaslight" which he wrote in 1938. In 1940 it was made in to a movie of the same name yet only 4 years later it was ...

Gattaca

Gattaca (1997)   3/53/53/53/53/5

106 mins     Sci-Fi, Thriller      

Starring Jude Law, Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke "Gattaca" is one of the most ingenious and thought provoking movies that I have watched in a long time. In our world, where cloning and genetic engineering is becoming a huge rea...

The Gay Diplomat

The Gay Diplomat (1931)   2/52/52/52/52/5

67 mins     Drama      

The most entertaining thing about "The Gay Diplomat" is a bit of trivia about lead actor Ivan Lebedeff doctoring the audience preview cards to say they loved it and him when the producers knew it was a disaster. Disaster is p...

The Gay Divorcee

The Gay Divorcee (1934)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

Coming at a time when "gay" still predominantly meant fun and happy "The Gay Divorcee" was the second movie to feature Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Adapted from a stage production which Fred Astaire also appeared in "The G...

The General's Daughter (1999)   3/53/53/53/53/5

116 mins     Crime, Drama, Mystery      

Alongside Scientology John Travolta and Tom Cruise have another thing in common; they've played the same character. Okay so that was lie but when you watch "The General's Daughter" the chances are you are going to end up comp...

Generation Gap

Generation Gap (2008)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Drama, Family      

Sometimes when watching a movie I wonder what movie would make an ideal double bill for it, the choice when watching "Generation Gap" was an easy one, it would be "On Golden Pond". The reason is that at their heart they are s...
