Taxi Driver (1976)

Easily one of the 10 best American films of the 1970s, Taxi Driver radically changed Robert De Niro’s career, establishing him as a first class character actor. The reason is blatantly obvious to everyone watching this powerful film by director Martin Scorsese, which sent De Niro into the ranks of super stardom. Scorsese gives a brutally disturbing(...)

Teen Wolf (1985)

In this likeable, if lightweight, comedy, a teenager who longs to be a little less ordinary discovers a family curse that kicks in when the Moon is full.

Teen Wolf Too (1987)

The original Teen Wolf (1985) was a big hit, although that was probably more to do with the fact that star Michael J Fox had just appeared in Back to the Future (1985). The first movie was essentially a one-joke teen comedy and this sequel is just a lazy retread, with Jason Bateman playing struggling college student Todd(...)

Telefon (1977)

Telefon (1977)

Adapted from Walter Wager's bestseller, this is far from director Don Siegel's best work, but it's a more than acceptable thriller with a nifty plot and a couple of cracking performances. Charles Bronson is solid enough as a KGB troubleshooter who is sent to America to prevent fifty "sleeping" Soviet agents from carrying out their(...)
