It Always Rains on SundayIt Always Rains on Sunday (1947)
Dir. Robert Hamer
Feat. Googie Withers, John McCallum, Jack Warner
Overlooked masterpiece of British crime noir which blends kitchen sink realism with the poetic sensibilities of 30's French cinema.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden DragonCrouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)
Dir. Ang Lee
Feat. Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Zhang Ziyi
A fantasy-fuelled, Chinese feudal melodrama laced with jaw-dropping combat sequences (arguably the best ever staged), this represents a new high watermark for Asian cinema both artistically and commercially (now the highest-grossing foreign-language film of all time). While indebted to a long tradition…

Combining his analytical skills with his deceased father's wrestling techniques, he decides…
Ford v FerrariFord v Ferrari (2019)
Dir. James Mangold
Feat. Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal
Handsomely-mounted standard issue Hollywood biopic of how the Ford motor company entered the motor-racing game to try to topple Ferrari's supremacy at the famous Le Mans championship in 1966. Unlike RUSH (2013), and perhaps contrary to marketing expectations, the two leads do not face off against one…

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & ShawFast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
Dir. David Leitch
Feat. Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba
Ever more over-the-top (ergo, ludicrous) spinoff of THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS (aka FF8), focusing on Dwayne Johnson's US Diplomatic Security Agent Hobbs forming an unlikely alliance with adversary Jason Statham's Shaw when a cyber-genetically enhanced villain threatens the future of humanity.
Spider-Man: Far From HomeSpider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Feat. Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal
Marvel-lous sequel to the hugely successful reboot 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', this follows the events of 'Avengers: Endgame', with Peter Parker aka Spider-Man recruited by Nick Fury (Jackson) and Mysterio (Gyllenhaal) to face the Elementals while he is on a school trip to Europe. And for those keeping…
