- Changeling (2008)
- Surprisingly disappointing tale of a mother's quest to find her missing son amongst extreme police corruption in the 1920s. Over–dramatic performances that boarder on terrible, with countless scenes that leave you rolling your eyes saying "as if!"
- Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her (1999)
- Five separate stories loosely tied together about the lives of a cross–section of women. Some big Hollywood names are featured, without the typical fluffy Hollywood–style story–lines, that make this an intelligent watch with heart and soul.
- VHS $10
- Paris Trout (1991)
- Incredible performamce by the late Hopper who plays a money–lending redneck racist who believes he's above the law and can get away with murder. Powerful, little–known 90's film, that went under the radar. Well worth a look.
- Until the End of the World (1991)
- Terrific 90's film that's a must–see for Wenders fans, this thought–provoking and haunting tale spans 15 cities in 7 countries. Probably the best road movie ever made. Superb cast and soundtrack. I can't rave about it enough.
- King Kong (2005)
- Well cast, breath–taking special effects (definitely one for the big screen) version of a classic. More than just good, but not astoundingly good as so many have come to expect from Jackson's previous creations.
$15 $11.25 | Blu-Ray $19.95, $44.95
- Lovely Bones, The (2009)
- Tale of a young girl murdered by her neighbour & her journey into the afterlife, while her family are left grieving and try to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Visually lovely & well cast, but definitely a case of the book being a whole lot better.
- Atonement (2007)
- A beautiful film with stunning cinematography, it's a tale of class differences, love, truth and justice, that spans several decades beginning shortly before World War II. Very popular and deservedly so.
$15 $11.25, $19.95
- Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
- Old Hollywood cinema, a high–class New York call–girl from humble beginnings meets a struggling writer who moves into her apartment building. It's a sweet funny romantic comedy that's still very much adored today.
- Gone with the Wind (1939)
- A classic epic tale that pushed cinematography to new limits. Superbly cast, this turbulent love affair set in the American South during the Civil War is every bit as good as the book.
- Casablanca (1942)
- Hailed as America's most popular and beloved film, this is simply a must for any movie lover. It has a timeless quality and the opportunity to view it on the big screen for it's 50th anniversary was a real treat.
