Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks review

The new Doctor wakes up and neither his companions nor the viewer are sure who he is. In this animated reconstruction of Patrick Troughton's first Doctor Who tale, the Daleks recognise him quickly enough

Elstree 1976 review

A frustratingly intimate documentary in which the people behind the masks reveal all about their experiences working on Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

Dr Strange review

Though Dr Strange should should pack more punch, this is a very ordinary film about a very unusual man doing very unusual things in a very ordinary world

The House Of The Witch Doctor review

Sometimes when a film is this bad, you don't even know where to begin to describe it – a horror film about rape, masquerading as a film about voodoo

British Comedies Of The 1930s Volume 7 review

Another fabulous volume, this time with a sex comedy, Dominant Sex, whose central couple argue about some very modern sexual politics, and slapstick farce Lost In The Legion, about two cooks who accidentally sign up for the Foreign Legion.
