Gods Must Be Crazy, The (1984)

What do you mean, you never heard of Botswana? It's an African territory. It's got the Kalahari Desert. It's even got a one-man movie industry named James Uys. This odd little movie was made in 1979 and was already an international success before its premiere in the United States five years later. It became the(...)

Godspell (1973)

A rock gospel according to Saint Matthew, David Greene's Godspell derived from a successful stage show.

Goldeneye (1995)

Pierce Brosnan makes his 007 introduction by bringing a refreshing dash of dynamism, humour and self-mocking jingoism back to the classic formula. Named after the house in Jamaica of Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, Goldeneye finds the ageless secret agent dealing with deadly double agents in a crumbling post-Soviet Russia and a modern feminist boss. James Bond (Pierce(...)

Goldfinger (1964)

The third Bond film and arguably the best ever, and certainly the movie which proves once and for all that Sean Connery was, is, and always will be the one true James Bond. Goldfinger also worked remarkably well because of a strong trio of villains; Gert Frobe played the eponymous baddie, bullion-obsessed Auric Goldfinger, with a(...)

Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

The versatile HB Halicki not only wrote, directed and starred in this grandaddy of the car-chase movie, he also supplied the vehicles - 93 of which ended up demolished.

This musical fantasy update on the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet is set on Earth at some point in the future.

Good Morning Vietnam (1987)

Good Morning Vietnam is a long, rambling and rather pointless vehicle for the multifaceted comic genius Robin Williams, but his performance is a one-man tour de force that cannot be forgotten. As renegade airman disc jockey Adrian Cronauer, tweaking the nose of the military brass, breaking all the rules, and flaunting regulations, Williams brings laughs and(...)

Good Will Hunting (1997)

Winning an Oscar for Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's screenplay, Good Will Hunting is about Will Hunting (Damon), a wrong-side-of-the-tracks janitor at top college MIT, who has an exceptional mind and whose mathematical genius is discovered by one of the professors (Stellan Skarsgård) at the school.

Good, The Bad and The Ugly, The (1966)

Sergio Leone was the master craftsman of the Spaghetti Western, and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is his masterpiece. His sequel to A Fistful of Dollars (1964) and For A Few Dollars More (1965) achieved almost mythical status. The search by Clint Eastwood (the good), Lee Van Cleef (the bad) and the ineffable Eli Wallach (the ugly) for Civil(...)

Goodbye Girl, The (1977)

Paula McFadden (Marsha Mason) is a twice-deserted single mother who reluctantly takes in oddball actor Elliot Garfield (Richard Dreyfuss in an Academy Award-winning Best Actor performance) as a roommate.   Barbs fly in typical Neil Simon fashion, but somewhere along the way an old-fashioned, teary-eyed romance manages to shine through. Richard Dreyfuss Marsha Mason Quinn(...)
