20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
D: Richard Fleischer (1954) 127m


Audiences got a sobering break from all the kitsch in this wonderful Disney version of the Jules Verne novel. James Mason, Kirk Douglas and Peter Lorre star, as Capt Nemo tries to bring peace to the world by sinking military shipping with his high-tech submarine Nautilus. The giant squid scene is worth the price of admission alone. Winner of two Academy Awards and a steampunk original.

Donnie Darko
D: Richard Kelly (2001) 122m


Highly original film that defies categorisation, although there are definite science fictional elements and 'psychological thriller' probably fits. Set in the late-80s, high school student Donnie Darko's dreams (or hallucinations?) are inhabited by a giant rabbit trying to steer him in disturbing directions. Stunning visuals, lots of 80s pop culture and fine performances throughout.

Minority Report
D: Steven Spielberg (2002) 145m


Tom Cruise is outstanding in this enthralling story of a Pre-Crime unit whose job it is to arrest criminals before they commit an offence. Arrests are made on the basis of the visions of a trio of drug-mutated psychic "Pre-Cogs". Things really hot up when Cruise's character is disturbingly implicated in a vision. Based somewhat loosely on the 1956 short story of the same name by Philip K. Dick.
