List of "Q" Movies

Q (1982) R horror

Recommended to those who would like to see an American version of a Japanese monster movie, Q is an intentionally campy flick with actors giving sometimes hilariously hokey performances. The story revolves around the resurrection of an Aztec god, which is a giant dragon that snatches people from New York rooftops. Itís an entertaining film, but it is slow at times. Starring: Michael Moriarty, David Carradine, Candy Clark, Richard Roundtree, Malachy McCourt, Lee Louis, John Capodice, James Dixon. Directed by: Larry Cohen. B-

The Queen (2006) PG-13 drama

This fascinating picture looks closely at the life of Queen Elizabeth II the week after Princess Diana was killed, which was perhaps the most turbulent time of her reign. Diana had divorced Charles a year earlier, which meant she was not a member of the royal family. Tradition would dictate the queen does nothing to commemorate her passing. However, times have changed, and the people are getting restless waiting for a statement. The newly elected Tony Blair (Michael Sheen) urges Elizabeth to do something, but the prime minister isnít supposed to tell royalty what to do. This is a great movie with fantastic performances, a top-notch script and distinctive ambiance. Starring: Helen Mirren, Michael Sheen, James Cromwell, Helen McCrory, Alex Jennings, Roger Allam, Sylvia Syms. Directed by: Stephen Frears. A

The Quiet Man (1955) NR romance

John Wayne, an Irish-American, goes to Ireland to purchase the home and the land he was born on. He is quick to make enemies (with his mean-natured neighbor) but romances with the neighbor's beautiful sister, played by Maureen O'Hara. A nicely written plot, beautiful Irish scenery, and even better acting makes this an unforgetful classic. Starring: John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Barry Fitzgerald, Ward Bond, Victor McLagen, Mildred Natwick, Francis Ford, Eileen Crowe. Directed by: John Ford. A+

Quigley Down Under (1990) PG-13 western

This slight but entertaining western/comedy stars Tom Selleck, an American traveling to Australia who ends up defending Aboriginals from forceful British troops. It isn't perfect but western-afficionados should enjoy it. Alan Rickman gives his signature snuffy-nosed bad guy performance, and I'm grateful. Starring: Tom Selleck, Laura San Giacomo, Alan Rickman, Chris Haywood, Ron Haddrick, Tony Bonner, Jerome Ehlers, Conor McBermottroe, Roger Ward, Ben Meldelson. Directed by: Simon Wincer. B-

Quiz Show (1994) PG-13 drama

This superb drama depicts a sad American event in television: The game show scandal. Mixed up in this is Charles Van Doren, played excellently by Ralph Fiennes, a prestigious individual with a well-respected father. He puts his reputation in jeopardy when he goes on a popular game show and accepts the producer's offer to have prior knowledge of the questions to be asked. Director Robert Redford sure outdoes himself! Starring: John Turturro, Rob Morrow, Ralph Fiennes, Paul Scofield, David Paymer, Hank Azaria, Christopher McDonald, Johann Carlo, Elizabeth Wilson, Allan Rich. Directed by: Robert Redford. A+
