Get Carter- (1971)
00:25 - 01:30 - Thu 15/4/21 - ITV 4
7.0/10 Stars

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

This terrific, tough British thriller hides its story of raw revenge behind some fascinating Newcastle upon Tyne locations, courtesy of cinematographer Wolfgang Suschitzky, and its impact remains undiminished. Director Mike Hodges keeps a firm hand on the surly proceedings and Michael Caine is at his most impressively impassive as the London gangster who goes north after his brother is murdered and finds his teenage niece involved in a blue-film racket. Playwright John Osborne, appearing here as a North East crime boss, has a razor-slash presence. This is sex and death with a British accent, and it makes a welcome change from the more familiar American-set thrillers of today. Unfortunately, a glossy Hollywood remake starring Sylvester Stallone was released in 2001, so be advised to stick with the unadulterated original.

Actor Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy) produced this made-for-TV true historical drama illuminating a dark episode in American history. In 1944, a segregated unit of black seamen, who are poorly trained and ill-equipped, are forced by belittling, racist officers to load dangerous munitions at a navy base in California. After an explosion kills more than 300 men, 50 black sailors take a stand and refuse to work. Although conventionally told, the film is full of convincing period detail and powerfully conveys the anger of a group of men determined to seek justice. A compelling film that will you leave you outraged, yet satisfied.

Over-organised Anna (Amy Adams) rushes from Boston to Ireland to propose to her cardiologist beau (Adam Scott) on 29 February, only to be confounded by the one thing she can't control - the weather. Miles off course, in the wilds of Dingle, she enlists the help of handsome minicab driver-cum-publican Declan (Matthew Goode), and the bickering pair set off to reunite her with her intended. Director Anand Tucker (Shopgirl) has produced a light, frothy romance with just enough blarney to charm the susceptible. Adams is enchanting, even when teetering on ridiculously high heels, and Goode manages to hang on to an often strained Irish accent, flashing his puppy-dog eyes along the way.

This eighth film in the series marks Roger Moore's first tour of duty as James Bond. The secret agent is up against the dark powers of voodoo in the bulky shape of Yaphet Kotto, while the more curvaceous Jane Seymour as tarot-reader Solitaire is on display as Bond's love interest. Boasting as many cliff-hanging moments as a Saturday-matinée serial, this tale of a plan to turn everyone into drug addicts allows Bond's adversaries - among them sharks, snakes and crocodiles - to be as mechanical as Moore himself. There are some splendid action sequences, notably a speedboat leap that set a new world record, as well as the usual array of hi-tech gadgetry.

Allegory is replaced by the just plain gory in the first sequel to Clive Barker's ground-breaking macabre masochistic myth about the dark angels of hell and their Faustian bargains. Kenneth Cranham is the demented doctor anxious to meet the Cenobite messengers, while asylum inmate Ashley Laurence (still recovering from Hellraiser events) is forced to fight the invoked demons for her father's soul. Routinely directed by Tony Randel, some disturbing eeriness is conjured up between the blood-soaked illogicalities and outlandish inconsistencies. The original sombre shocker was a thought-provoking study in carnal terrors - this is more a three-ring circus of pretentious horror.

Dusting down the classic Hollywood story of the little man winning big, this triple-Oscar-winning boxing drama is shot through with genuine impassioned commitment, born of the fact that Sylvester Stallone realised that this was his best hope of stardom. The notion, then, of success hanging by a thread unites both the character of boxer Rocky Balboa and of Stallone himself. Stallone, in fact, is highly convincing as a mumbling Philadelphia no-hoper who makes the most of his opportunities and ends up having a crack at the loquacious heavyweight champion of the world, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers, by way of Muhammad Ali). Sly also wrote the script and was rewarded with Oscar nominations for both acting and writing.
