- Full Monty, The (1997)
- A bunch of unlikely British lads, all out of work, get their kit off hoping to make a small fortune performing for their local community. Clever dialogue, and very very funny.
- Four Weddings and a Funeral (1993)
- A classic romantic comedy that is actually very watchable, about a bachelor whose always the best man but never the groom and his group of equally single friends. Funny and touching – nice to revisit now and again.
- Cocktail (1988)
- Just like the decade it's from, a bit empty but over–the–top flashy and lots of fun. Nice to revisit for a trip down cinema memory lane and to have a good old reminisce to.
- League of Their Own, A (1992)
- A charming enough tale based on the true life story of the first female professional baseball league and their struggle to succeed amidst growing rivalry.
- Dances with Wolves (1990)
- Epic Western about an army officer who goes "native". Sympathetic take on the flight of the Native Americans, who for so long Hollywood only ever painted as savages.
- DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
- Raising Arizona (1985)
- One of the best comedies to come out of the 80's, about a policewoman who falls for a remorseful robber. The odd–ball couple, unable to have a child, decide to kidnap one. Black comedy and slapstick all rolled into one. It's the zaniest ride ever.
- Honeymoon in Vegas (1992)
- Romantic comedy about a reluctant bridegroom who finally agrees to marriage, only to lose his fiancee in a crooked poker game to a professional gambler in Vegas. Hilarious moments, and some quite cheesy ones too..
- Someone to Watch Over Me (1987)
- Nice 80's romantic–thriller that's pulled off with style. A tale about a New York cop and family man who falls for the rich and beautiful witness he's assigned to protect. Liked it.
- Bodyguard, The (1992)
- When an iconic 80's pop diva turns Hollywood actress, of course it's going to pull a crowd. However this corny tale is sadly lacking any substance and stands only as a platform for Houston's amasing vocal cords.
- William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1997)
- Hip, modern, film adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tale of two star–crossed lovers – set on the streets of Verona the two gun–toting families wage war, while dialogue stays true to the original text. Clever, stylish, and very unique.
