Once Upon a Time in the West -- Special Collector's Edition (2 discs) [DVD] [1969]
"One of the last great Westerns, perfect casting, terrific score and Sergio Leone directing culminates in an awesome tribute to the idea of men who lived expecting to die at any moment."
The Shining [DVD] [1980]
The Shining [DVD] [1980]
"A fantastically beautiful film, Jack Nicholson's descent into madness is brilliantly juxtaposed with the unravelling of the happy family situation held so dear by wife Shelley Duvall."
Tremors [DVD] [1990]
Tremors [DVD] [1990]
"This classic B-movie with Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward is an excellent example of how to marry comedy with farcical horror. Bert Gummer is perhaps the greatest embodiment of red-neck hickery ever"
Once Upon A Time In America [DVD] [1984]
Once Upon A Time In America [DVD] [1984]
"An interesting story that tells the lives of a group of friends in three separate periods. James Woods and Robert De Niro rule the screen with great support from Tuesday Weld."
The Untouchables [DVD] [1987]
The Untouchables [DVD] [1987]
"Not historically accurate but another film filled to the brim with A-list actors who do not disappoint. A bloody send-up to the Cagney-era gangster flicks which remain wastefully forgotten."
James Cagney - The Signature Collection : Angels With Dirty Faces / Public Enemy / Roaring Twenties / White Heat (4 Disc Box Set) [1931] [DVD]

"Like the guy says, nevermind De Niro and Pacino, James Cagney was the original gangster and all-round tough guy, whose influence can be seen in Mean Streets, Scarface and all the modern greats."
For A Few Dollars More  (Special Edition) [DVD]
For A Few Dollars More (Special Edition) [DVD]
"Perhaps the best of the trilogy, the on-off partnership between Clint and Mortimer bring an emotional element, almost a brotherhood which is absent from the other two."
It's a Wonderful Life [1946] [DVD]
It's a Wonderful Life [1946] [DVD]
"Ring a bell. Some people can't watch b&w films because of technological snobbery, but to miss this film is to do yourself a disservice. Possibly my favourite of all-time."
