All 36 reviews from Nick Watts
  • American Pie - The Threesome
    "The ultimate in teen-comedy is finally presented in a full-featured box set with an excellent range of special features."
  • Angels in America
    "This epic production is not to be missed. Angels in America challenges and inspires, offering insight into the lives of five characters, living and dealing with homosexuality in the 80s."
  • Bad Santa
    "A foul-mouthed comedy; this time, genuinely for adults."
  • Birthday Boy
    "A beautifully subtle insight into humanity; through the eyes of a young child in war-torn Korea."
  • The Bourne Supremacy
    "A film for those who enjoy switching their mind off, watching people run and listening to those sweet sweet explosions."
  • The Cat Returns
    "While slightly derivative and lacking, The Cat Returns is a charming film from the world’s greatest animation studio. "
  • The Chronicles of Riddick
    "This pure Vin Diesel vehicle combines mindless sci-fi cheese and the worst screenplay of 2004 ... all on an amazing DVD."
  • Closer
    "Nichols has moved the stage to the screen flawlessly, in a film that takes a brave and realistic step inside contemporary relationships."
  • The Corporation
    "... as a breath of fresh air, The Corporation has come to help us all discover the documentary within!"
  • Dawn of the Dead - Director's Cut (2004)
    "Frightening, funny and frenetic. This modern re-make of the George A. Romero classic succeeds with flying colours!"
  • Donnie Darko - Director's Cut
    "The renaissance of Donnie Darko ensues inside."
  • Elephant
    "An interesting piece of experimental cinema that will prove either rewarding or frustrating - but either way, definitely worth a good look."
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Collector's Edition
    "Never to be forgotten."
  • Family Guy - Season Three
    "While Season Three is probably the weakest of the series, the boosted number of episodes certainly makes up for it. This is animation at its most hilarious."
  • Goodbye Lenin!
    "A film that's moving, funny, occasionally thought- provoking and generally entertaining. An excellent mix of comedy and genuine drama."
  • Goodfellas - Special Edition
    "This is one of the finest films ever created. Buy it now."
  • Gothika
    "An ultimately unfulfilling supernatural-thriller. There’s nothing new here – even for fans of the genre."
  • I Heart Huckabees
    "If quirky and philosophical are what you look for in a film, this may well be a new favourite. I Heart Huckabees wildly original, frequently hilarious and unmistakably brilliant."
  • The Iron Giant - Special Edition
    "Brad Bird's debut animated feature is here presented in a somewhat disappointing special edition. "
  • Kiki's Delivery Service
    "Miyazaki's Kiki embraces the time-old cliché of ‘for all ages’ exceptionally well."
  • Laputa: Castle in the Sky
    "An amazing adventure of epic proportions; Castle in the Sky is the heart- warming fantasy tale to soar above all others. "
  • Monster - Special Edition
    "... a devastating and powerful film, pushed with a brilliant performance and a heartbreaking tale of loss, and more loss."
  • Once Upon A Time In China - Special Collector's Edition
    "Don’t mistake this as anything more than a formulaic martial arts film."
  • Persona Non Grata
    "Oliver Stone’s quest for an interview with the elusive Yasser Arafat proves fascinating and absorbing."
  • Porco Rosso
    "Porco Rosso is arguably Miyazaki’s least assessable film to date, but is certainly one of his finest achievements. "
  • The Postman Always Rings Twice
    "An archetypical American film-noir, but nothing more."
  • Princess Mononoke
    "This quintessential classic of anime appeals to young and old, offering an immense range in interpretation and entertainment value. "
  • Pulp Fiction - 10th Anniversary Special Edition
    "This is a film that simply oozes perfection. "
  • The Punisher
    "Comic-book revenge thriller with added cheese!"
  • Requiem for a Dream
    "The contemporary drug-horror that is Requiem for a Dream demonstrates exactly what an addiction entails..."
  • The Sugarland Express
    "Alas, The Sugarland Express turned out as terrible as we all imagined."
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) - Limited Collector's Edition
    "There just seems to be something side-splittingly funny about a leather-faced man chasing teens with a chainsaw. "
  • Thirteen
    "This fast-paced, unflinching look at teenage adolescence proves there’s a clear future for independent filmmaking in Hollywood."
  • THX-1138 - Director's Cut
    "George Lucas’s influential debut finally surfaces on DVD. An excellent presentation of this intriguing film will delight fans and buffs alike. "
  • The Triplets Of Belleville
    "While certainly strange and esoteric, The Triplets of Belleville is a fascinating animated film."
  • Troy
    "A story about a wooden horse, wooden boats and wooden acting. But then Hollywood wooden know any better."
