Recent Additions (Films We Should Have Had Before, But Didn’t)

936full-memphis-belle-posterMEMPHIS BELLE (1990) – dir. Michael Caton-Jones (Rob Roy, This Boy’s Life).

Surprisingly affecting WWII drama, with especially good aerial combat scenes that give a pretty good idea of the psychological strength required by pilots flying missions. Good all round cast including Matthew Modine, Eric Stoltz, Billy Zane and John Lithgow. Great little family film.


All-The-Right-Moves-Poster-2ALL THE RIGHT MOVES (1983) – dir. Michael Chapman (director of photography, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Last Waltz)


8fb4183b_1991RocketeerPosterTHE ROCKETEER (1991) – dir. Joe Johnston (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Jumanji, Jurassic Park 3, Captain America).

Fantastic family fun about a young aviator who happens upon a jet-pack prototype that (after a few bumpy landings) turns him into a fully-fledged art deco super-hero. Starring Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin and Billy Campbell.
