Cover Movie View Cover
The Jungle Book (1967)
Director: Wolfgang Reitherman
The last film personally supervised by Uncle Walt, this has a strong shout for being Disney's most gloriously entertaining film. Great characters, genius songs and rich animation. Read Review
Iron Man (2008)
Director: Jon Favreau
Robert Downey Jr. takes the Marvel fave to a whole new level and audience. Favreau mounts efficient action, but it's the acting that sticks - how rare is that for a summer blockbuster? Read Review

Dirty Dancing (1987)
Director: Emile Ardolino
Let's see if we can get through this without any mention of "Baby" and "corner". Oh, bollocks. Great tunes, romantic wish-fulfilment and a '60s innocence make this an evergreen populist classic. Read Review

RoboCop (1987)
Director: Paul Verhoeven
Part man. Part machine. All brilliance. Verhoeven's Hollywood debut balances futuristic cop action with a skewed sense of subversive satire. We'll buy this for a dollar. Read Review
Do The Right Thing (1989)
Director: Spike Lee
A Molotov cocktail of a movie, this long hot summer's day in Brooklyn has it all: energy, comedy, great tunes and a simmering sense of anger that boils over. Still Spike's best joint. Read Review

Little Miss Sunshine (1947)
Directors: Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris
So indie it hurts - dysfunctional characters, mainstream actors (Steve Carell, Greg Kinnear) doing quirky, Best Original Screenplay awards - this transcends the easy labelling with a real sense of the pangs and pathos of family life. Read Review
