Let us know what xou think - by post or by e-mail (addresses >>>). The Avengers. Huge flop not helped by the ban on previews. A classic example of artistic and public relations ineptitude. Lost $40m. Godzilla. Too clever by half in thb SFX department, which ate up the bulk of the $120m budget. Actors in monster suits preferred. ——————————————————————————————————1710— by Victor Olliver NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Xmas movies Reviews Videos 

Velvet Goldmine. At |ast Ewan McGregor appears in a turkey. Only thing worth seeing is the glittery costumes. Good riddance to the '70s. Primary Colors. Hypocritical film pretending it wasn't about the Clintons. This was a mzted, censored version of Joe Klein's book. Sphere. Sharon Stone sank with this underwater drama - seemed too much like Abyss. ——————————————————————————————————3O10— Your local January Sales guide 445 NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Xmas movies Reviews Videos Teens

The biggest-grossing film of all time at nearly $2 billion. 'jth the biggest star in the world - Leonardo DiCaprio. The SFX were impressive, but more appealing was the old-fashioned romance - poor little rich girl (Kate Winslet) falls for a man who sacrifices his life. The Truman Show. Npm Carrey's satire on TV, with a man who doesn't realise he's the star of a 24-tour slow. Very funny stuff. ——————————————————————————————————6/10p e-mail: Bigscreen@teletext.co.uk Letters to: Big Screen, PO Box 297, London SW6 1XT. Fax: 0171 381 8525 Xmas movies Reviews Videos Teens

Ten times better than the other political satire, Primary Colors. Amistad.

Bruce Willis proved us wrong with this enjoyable asteroid thriller. Better than Deep Impact. The X-Files. You're not supposed to understand the plot!
