Old Yeller (1957)

Not as good as the book but still a solid movie.

Oliver Twist (1948)

Is this the most Dickensian of Dickens screen adaptations? I think so!

Oliver Twist (2005)

The David Lean version is the benchmark but this has good qualities of its own.

Oliver Twist (1982)

Does some downright peculiar things to the storyline.

Oliver Twist (1922)

Lon Chaney, who would soon play the titular characters in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and the wonderful classic melodrama The Phantom of the Opera, is a Fagin Jackie Coogan would remember as having actually scared him. Coogan is a little young for the part and can't match John Howard Davies's perfect hollow-cheeked, spiritual incarnation of Oliver, but the film constructed around him is actually surprisingly good.

Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981)

A second poor follow-up to the quite good original.

The Omen (1976)

Hokey and schlocky and all that but really well done and I like it. Quite low on the jump scares and the gore, heavier on the thinky and investigative and psychological side of things.

The Omen (2006)

Very close to the original but the original is, as usual, much better. This one does, however, look good and have a few fresh ideas, some of which I quite liked, though others may dislike them. One major drawback here is that this Damien is openly malevolent, as opposed to 1976s Damien: it's never clear how much that one understands of what is going on and the part he is to play in it, and that's one of the 1976 version's strengths. Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick cropped up again in 2015 as the lead in a low-budget but surprisingly good short film called After School, about a boy secretly in love with his male best friend.

On purge bébé (1931)

Interesting medium-length piece by Jean Renoir, director of the marvellous classic La Grande illusion. Humour rather laboured.

Oorlogsgeheimen (2014)

It's been pointed out that the actors here aren't speaking with the Limburg accent, which is a bit jolting to Dutch speakers. Based on a novel by Jacques Vriens.

Oorlogswinter (2008)

Good despite some plot holes, including the downed pilot's miraculously quick-healing leg. Based on a popular semi-autobiographical 1972 novel by Jan Terlouw. Nice acting from Martijn Lakemeier, who turned up again in the good 2013 film It's All So Quiet. However, the 1975 TV miniseries based on the book is rather better, despite lower production values.

Opowiesc atlantycka (1955)

Remarkable film from Wanda Jakubowska, who was imprisoned in Auschwitz for her work in the Polish resistance and in 1947 made The Last Stage, a film based on her experiences in Auschwitz, shot partly on location and including former Auschwitz prisoners in the cast. Here Damien Damiecki is wonderful throughout -- what a lovely young performer!

Orphan Train (1979)

OK and involving fictionalised account of the origins of the "placing out" of New York City "street rats" with farming families out West.

Ostavljeni (2010)

Decent and moving but not nearly as good as Grbavica by Jasmila Žbanić, who more recently directed the also very good On the Path.
