A boy befriends a massive alien robot. Smart, affecting and upbeat Cold War-era animation, varying the ET template enough to make this adaptation of Ted Hughes’ The Iron Man successful in its own right. A good job done all around, with a positive message carefully dramatised.
An imprisoned leprechaun escapes, determined to kill anyone between and his pot o’gold. Shoddy comedy-horror with precious little of either. Notable only for a determined lead performance from Warwick Davis, and for an early lead for a pre-Friends Jennifer Aniston.
A corporate stork and a young woman have to deliver a baby. Though intermittently hilarious (the wolves are good, and there are some beautifully random jokes) this is an odd beast with a complicated set-up that has little inner logic. The usual heartwarming lessons learned, though.
