4.0 out of 5 stars Rooster Cogburn, 23 April 2006
Enjoyable western. An ageing John Wayne gives an entertaining performance as law man Rooster Cogburn in this follow up to True Grit. Here, Cogburn teams up with preecher's daughter Katharine Hepburn to avenge the death of her father. This is by no means as brilliant as True Grit (which won Wayne his only oscar) but there are some decent action scenes although most of the film's appeal lies in the brilliant chemistry between Wayne and Hepburn.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Untouchables, 18 July 2005
Excellent gangster movie set during prohibition era America about real life government agent Elliot Ness, who together with his unit of 'untouchable' officers brought Chicago mobster Al Capone to justice. In his breakthrough role, Kevin Costner plays Ness, Robert De Niro gives an unforgettable performance as Al Capone and there is also great support from Charles Martin Smith, Andy Garcia and Sean Connery (who won an Oscar here for his portrayal of veteran cop Malone). This film not only boasts a top notch plot and some excellent acting but also features fantastic music from Ennio Morricone (whose score for Sergio Leone's 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' reached no. 1 in the world pop charts) as well as some unforgettable cinematic moments like the Station steps gunfight. Overall this is a masterpiece from director Brian De Palma, who also made another top quality gangster epic Scarface.
