I know all the girls fancy him like mad, but I am fed-up with his baby-face spouting lines written for macho men. I say: "Cruise...NO!!" Adam McKenzie, Bristol Oh dear! I wonder if you are suffering from generation gapitis. He's actually 36 years old. ——————————————————————————————————1/5—— WIN a video recorder 465 TOTAL ENTERTAINMENT FULL GUIDE p400

It's by far the best of the so-called blockbuster movies this season and easily the best Lethal Weapon since the original.

As for Saving Private Ryan, only Steven Spielberg could have made the movie. He is a master of the art. Unfortunately within a few years there will be others made where his skill and judgment will be missed. The result will be carnage for no reason.

Lolita will be part of film history long after blockbusters like Titanic are forgotten. Anthony Walker, Christchurch, Dorset. A potentially controversial view. What does everyone else think?

The secret of success seems to be to remember what made the TV series popular in the first place and expand its appeal to a wider audience.
