Leave Her to Heaven
(1945) Riveting film noir melodrama starring Gene Tierney as an irredeemably evil, possessive woman who resorts to murder.A young couple are slowly torn apart by jealousy. Noir thriller starring Gene Tierney and Cornel Wilde
With a name like Leave Her To Heaven, John Stahl's movie could only be a film noir. Adapted from the book by top thriller writer Ben Ames Williams, the picture is in fact a fine example of the form with top performances from genre stalwarts Gene Tierney (Night And The City) and Cornel Wilde (The Big Combo).
(1941) A draper's assistant inherits money in 1906 and attempts to become a member of society in a small seaside town.Adaptation of HG Wells' novel about a poor orphan who makes good after receiving a legacy from his dead parents. Michael Redgrave is Kipps, the draper who discovers that money isn't an immediate passport to the upper classes
At the turn of the 20th Century, HG Wells turned from writing futuristic sci-fi to more down to earth accounts of British society. In Kipps, he draws on his own experiences of Britain's class-ridden social structure to provide an entertaining autobiographical tale. Director Carol Reed, who also made such classics as The Third Man and The Fallen Idol, sticks faithfully to the core of Wells' novel and produces a diverting comedy of Victorian manners.

The Italian Job
(2003) A group of crooks plan to steal a gold shipment from the middle of an LA traffic jam. Action movie remake of the much-loved British film.A group of crooks plan to steal a gold shipment from the middle of an LA traffic jam. Action movie remake of the much-loved British film, with Mark Wahlberg in the Mini's driving seat
Everyone expected this to be rubbish. After all, Hollywood's track record in remakes of Michael Caine classics isn't exactly glowing (anyone fancy watching the Sylvester Stallone Get Carter?). But, for once, 'everyone' was wrong - the The Italian Job remake may be different, but in its own way it's almost as much fun as the 1969 original.
Freddy Vs Jason
(2003) Ronny Yu's gore-soaked effort pits two of horror cinema's most famous icons, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, against each other.Bringing together two of horror cinema's most famous icons, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, Ronny Yu's gore-soaked effort pits them against one another in a nightmarish battle to the death
Alongside Batman versus Superman and Alien versus Predator, the chance to see Freddy Krueger battle it out with fellow slasher icon Jason Voorhees has long been a movie buff's wet dream, destined to remain one of those great unmade franchise hybrids. But, two years after the hockey-masked slasher last went on the rampage in Jason X and nine after Freddy last got fingered in Wes Craven's New Nightmare, Freddy Vs. Jason became a reality.
