With award season on the horizon, Radio Times Magazine has launched a new film guide, with a twist.


Over the years, the magazine has rated films from one star to five stars, and now it has compiled some of its favourite films. It has whittled down over 1,000 titles to 250, and readers are in for a treat.

Across 180 pages, there are films from all genres, dating all the way back to 1902's Le Voyage dans la Lune to 2023's blockbuster Oppenheimer and everything in between.

Some of the movies that feature in the guide include comedy Bridesmaids, action epic Gladiator and even the animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
