Full Monty, TheFull Monty, The (1997)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) 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 FuneralFour Weddings and a Funeral (1993)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) 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.
CocktailCocktail (1988)
2 stars (Good Try) 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.
DVD $15 $11.25
League of Their Own, ALeague of Their Own, A (1992)
3 stars (Good Enough) 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 WolvesDances with Wolves (1990)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) 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 ArizonaRaising Arizona (1985)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) 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 VegasHoneymoon in Vegas (1992)
3 stars (Good Enough) 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 MeSomeone to Watch Over Me (1987)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) 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, TheBodyguard, The (1992)
2 stars (Good Try) 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.
DVD $20 $15
William Shakespeare's Romeo and JulietWilliam Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1997)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) 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.
DVD $25 $18.75
