Wow Video.

DONNIE BRASCO (18)

AL PACINO, JOHNNY DEPP

Terrific mob movie about the little fellas, with Pacino as an ageing hood and Depp in a career-best performance as an FBI undercover agent.

Rating: 9/10

THE SAINT (12)

VAL KILMER, ELISABETH SHUE

Forget the TV version - the producers did. An unintentionally hilarious caper with better gizmos than Mission: Impossible and naff disguises from Kilmer.

Rating: 6/10

FEVER PITCH (15)

COLIN FIRTH, RUTH GEMMELL

Nick Hornby's saga of a football-obsessed teacher survives the miscasting of Firth to become the best footie film since Escape To Victory (just a joke).

Rating: 5/10

THE RELIC (15)

TOM SIZEMORE, PENELOPE ANN MILLER

Sci-Fi shocker which could have been called Alien's Big Day Out At The Museum. Miller keeps her head while all around are losing theirs.

Rating: 5/10

JERRY MAGUIRE (15)

TOM CRUISE, CUBA GOODING JNR

Hecan run, he can jump - now Tom Cruise proves he can act in a feel-good movie about a sports agent who discovers the meaning of life.

Rating: 8/10

THE PEOPLE v LARRY FLYNT (18)

WOODY HARRELSON, COURTNEY LOVE

BIOPIC of Larry Flynt, who fought for his right to publish pictures of numerous women who had the habit of losing their clothes.

Rating: 6/10

ROMEO AND JULIET (12)

LEONARDO DICAPRIO, CLAIRE DANES

The Bard is dragged kicking and screaming into the MTV age as the star-crossed lovers jostle with transvestites and hookers in a sequin-studded spectacular.

Rating: 9/10

SPACE JAM (U)

MICHAEL JORDAN BUGS BUNNY

The cartoons are kidnapped by aliens and only Michael Jordan can save them. Not so much a movie, more a big-money merchandising exercise.

Rating: 6/10

POWDER (12)

JEFF GOLDBLUM, MARY STEENBURGEN

Spooky, X Files-style yarn about an albino genius whose Uri Geller- style spoon antics soon leaves the locals looking like they have just seen a ghost.

Rating: 5/10

THE ENGLISH PATIENT (15)

RALPH FIENNES KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS

Here it is - the Oscar-bustin' WW2 romance between a map-reader and an explorer's wife, dubbed "Lawrence Of Arabia with snogging".

Rating: 5/10
