Film of the Day: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
A perfectly perverted take on the Frankenstein tale, this kinky, retro musical pays tribute to cheap and cheerful B-movie fright flicks, riotous rock ‘n’ roll and unrestrained transsexuality. Let’s do the Time Warp, indeed.

Film of the Day: The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
A romantic sci fi thriller about love, fate and free will starring Matt Damon as a politician on the verge of greatness and Emily Blunt as the dancer he’d give it all up for, if only it was up to him… Strange and exciting with a smarter-than-average plot, great chemistry between the leads and a terrific Twilight Zoney atmosphere.

Film of the Day: Sexy Beast (2000)
