School of Rock
(2003) Jack Black stars as a wannabe rock 'n' roller who, masquerading as a substitute teacher, inspires his kids in the art of heavy riffing.Jack Black stars as a wannabe rock 'n' roller who, masquerading as a substitute teacher, inspires his kids in the art of heavy riffing. Richard 'Slacker' Linklater directs from a script by Mike 'Chuck and Buck' White
Jack Black - loudmouth, comic actor, rock musician. Often, the films he appears in (High Fidelity, Orange County) constrain him, his robustly over-the-top persona straining at the seams. School Of Rock was created as a vehicle for Black, but it's still not entirely right. It's a kid's movie after all, and the louder, lewder side of Black is restrained. However, his energy is far from diminished.
Fanny By Gaslight
(1936) Romantic melodrama set in the 1870s, starring Phyllis Calvert and Stewart Granger.Fanny (Calvert) returns to her London home having finished her studies at boarding school in the 1870s. Soon her life is in turmoil. Her parents die, and she discovers that they have been running a brothel for years and that her real father is a cabinet minister (Lindsell). She tracks him down and he begrudgingly gives her a job in his house. More drama develops as Fanny falls for her father's adviser, Harry Somerford (Granger), and secrets surrounding the mysterious Lord Manderstoke (Mason) are revealed. A packed but poorly paced costume drama.

One Fine Day
(1996) Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney are the two single parents juggling life and love in this likeable, thoroughly modern romantic comedy.Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney elevate this formulaic, but likeable romantic comedy on the pressures of modern day 30-something existence
A cute, old-fashioned romantic comedy with modern accessories.
(2005) Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn star as two long-term buddies who've worked out that weddings are the ideal place to pick up women.Champion liggers Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn get more than they bargain for when they invite themselves to a high-society marriage in this spirited comedy
"One day you'll look back on this and laugh," says Vince Vaughn's character in this comedy from David Dobkin, the director of Shanghai Knights. It's a pretty good summation of a film that, while thoroughly predictable and infuriatingly long, delivers enough laughs to keep you smiling through its dull patches.
From Dusk Till Dawn
(1995) This cult horror movie sees Tarantino and George Clooney hijack the Rev Fuller's mobile home to get them to Mexico.Energetic low-budget vampire nonsense from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. The latter also stars alongside Harvey Keitel and George Clooney

Planes, Trains and Automobiles
(1987) Steve Martin and John Candy lead John Hughes' freewheeling road-trip comedy. Cinema
Steve Martin and John Candy lead John Hughes' freewheeling road-trip comedy. An uptight ad exec and a boisterous curtain-ring salesman struggle to make the trip from New York to Chicago. Disaster repeatedly intervenes
Planes, Trains and Automobiles After the success of The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, John Hughes managed to catch two of America's best mainstream comics at the peak of their powers. The result is a fast-paced and fantastically energetic two-man show that ranks among the director's finest films.
