Heaven Can Wait (1943)

Spoiled playboy Henry van Cleve (Don Ameche) dies and arrives at the entrance to Hell, a final destination he is sure he deserves after living a life of profligacy. The devil (Laird Cregar), however, isn't so sure Henry meets Hell's standards. Convinced he is where he belongs, Henry recounts his life's deeds, both good and bad, including an act of indiscretion during his 25-year marriage to his wife, Martha (Gene Tierney), with the hope that "His Excellency" will arrive at the proper judgment.

The Whales of August (1987)

Two elderly sisters, Libby Strong (Bette Davis) and Sarah Webber (Lillian Gish), travel to their summer house in Maine. The pair couldn't be less similar: Libby is blind, cynical and mean-spirited; Sarah is sunny, optimistic and healthy. Yet their shared memories and hardships -- especially the deaths of their husbands -- help bind the two together. Still, the entrance of a local fisherman (Vincent Price) into Sarah's life threatens to reopen old wounds.

A Bridge Too Far 1977

Operation Market Garden, September 1944: The Allies attempt to capture several strategically important bridges in the Netherlands in the hope of breaking the German lines. However, mismanagement and poor planning result in its failure.
Director: Richard Attenborough
Writers: Cornelius Ryan (book), William Goldman (screenplay)
Stars: Sean Connery, Ryan O'Neal, Michael Caine .

The true story of Operation Market Garden, the Allies attempt, in September 1944, to hasten the end of WW2 by driving through Belgium and Holland into Germany. The idea was for US airborne divisions to take the towns of Eindhoven and Nijmegen and a British airborne division, reinforced by a Polish airborne brigade, to take the town of Arnhem. They would be reinforced, in due course and in turn, by the British XXX Corps, land-based and driving up from the British lines in the south. The key to the operation was the bridges, as if the Germans held or blew them, the paratroopers could not be relieved. Faulty intelligence, Allied high command hubris and stubborn German resistance would ensure that Arnhem was a bridge too far.

Arthur & Merlin (2015)

Inspired by the same Celtic myths that J.R.R. Tolkien read as a young man, Arthur and Merlin is the epic fantasy adventure of good versus evil and tells the story of the two iconic characters as you’ve never seen them before. In Dark Ages Britain, a time of myth and magic, a Saxon force from the East attacks the Celtic people. But the vicious Saxons are not the only threat the Celts face. The powerful druid, Aberthol, secretly plots to destroy them too. He controls the ailing King Vortigern and leads the Celts to their deaths. But hope is not lost. Arthur, a banished warrior, and Merlin, a hermit wizard, embark on a heroic quest to stop Aberthol and save their people before the Celts are gone forever, lost to mere myth themselves.

Dinotopia (TV Series 2002–2003)

Dinotopia is a four-hour (three-episode) TV miniseries co-produced by Walt Disney Television and Hallmark Entertainment. It is based on the fictional world of Dinotopia, a utopia in which sentient dinosaurs and humans coexist, created by American author James Gurney. The miniseries uses plot details from Gurney's first two Dinotopia books, Dinotopia and Dinotopia: The World Beneath, although it takes place in a time farther into the future. The main characters are two American teenage boys from a contemporary time frame (unlike the Victorian era castaways in the books—the film thus loses some of the classicism of the original books).[1] The boys crash their father's plane into the sea and get stranded on Dinotopia, where they must adjust to a new society. The story in the film contains references to many of the characters in the book series, with some of their descendents occupying key roles in the plot. The original score was composed by Trevor Jones.

His vengeful mother forecasts the deaths of the three young men she holds responsible, on 7, 14, and 21 days hence. And, one by one, her grim predictions come true. Next, a ghoulish sound emanates from a mist-shrouded hole in the Earth near where a Missouri boy has lost his dog. The boy's father is lowered into the hole and lets out an agonizing scream! Finally, a senator returning home from a party finds a lost girl on a bridge and learns from her father that she died years earlier!

Frankenstein: The True Story (TV Movie 1973)

In this re-imagining of the classic tale, Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Leonard Whiting) meets Dr. Henry Clerval (David McCallum), who is experimenting with reanimating bodies. Together they create the Creature (Michael Sarrazin), and after Clerval dies Dr. Frankenstein gives their creation his brain. At first the Creature functions like an ordinary human, but, as its body deteriorates and it comes under the control of the mad Dr. Polidori (James Mason), it begins to lash out and wreak havoc.

Surprisingly good adaptation of the Isherwood screenplay, though not sticking exactly with the original novel, this is an incredible spectacle, with good special effects. Not done in the classic manner, this has been dubbed more of an intellectual's horror movie. The creature is by no means the patchwork quilt beastie we are used to seeing when thinking of Frankenstein. Instead, he is a very handsome Victorian-era man whose physical decomposition brings about an agony of spirit as well as physical adjustments. Michael Sarrazin's monster is brilliant and sympathetic.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (TV Movie 2003)

Dr. Henry Jekyll experiments with scientific means of revealing the hidden, dark side of man and releases a murderer from within himself.

I have seen one of the Jekyll-and-Hyde films so far. But this one is much better since it shows Hyde as he was described in the novel: as a person that seems different looking although there is no obvious malformation present (like it was overdone in the "League of the extraordinary gentlemen" and also in the movie from 1931). John Hannah demonstrates perfectly here that the evil does not have to be connected to a horrible look. He did a great job working out the psychological dark side of this tragic figure. The changes from Jekyll to Hyde were brilliantly filmed. For everybody who is interested in the novel this film is certainly a must-see.

When it breaks out, the war lasts 30 years, destroying the city and ushering in a new dark age of plagues and petty despots.

But first they'll have to unseat the latest ruling tyrant (Ralph Richardson).
