- Batman: The Dark Knight (2008)
- Fast–paced super dark modern–day version of Batman – good versus evil – with ultra hi–tech weapons and gadgets, while still managing to delve into the psyche of the characters. Naturally, the late Ledger's crazed performance steals the show.
- DVD $14.95
- Series 7: The Contenders (2000)
- With the rise in popularity of American reality–tv shows, this satire portrays a group of contenders who's mission is to battle it out to the death 'reality–style' with cameras rolling. Clever concept, but unfortunately just didn't deliver.
- Wolf Creek (2005)
- Absolutely revolting movie – and to say this was "based on true events" is laughable. Actually started out promising, but gradually deteriorated into a gratuitously violent blood–and–gore yawn fest. Just hidious.
- DVD $34.95
- Hot Fuzz (2007)
- An eccentric English village acquire a top city cop, who uncovers there's more to the seemingly sleepy idyllic township. Hilariously original, a very well executed film.
$12.50 $9.40, $14.95, $19.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
- Signs (2002)
- A family wake up one morning to find a massive crop circle in their backyard, then discover they're happening world–wide. A case of oh no the world's been invaded by aliens, we're all going to die. Sadly lacking in any substance.
- Village, The (2004)
- A 19th–century village live in fear of the terrible creatures that inhabit a surrounding forbidden forest that no–one dares to enter. Not that difficult to guess the rest. Nicely shot film, but lacking in depth and too predictable.
- Butterfly Effect, The (2003)
- Psychology student discovers by re–reading his childhood journals, he can revisit his past and alter traumatic events and hopefully improve their previously unfortunate outcomes. Utterly ridiculous, a true turkey of a film.
- Dark Water (2002)
- Suspense–filled thriller about a mother and young daughter beginning a new life together. But when they move to a dilapidated and worn apartment, it suddenly takes on a life of its own. Nightmarish and surreal.
- Beetlejuice (1988)
- Excellent black comedy about a young couple whose premature death sees them as ghosts in their own New England home, and scaring off the pretentious new owners. Burton's unique visual style and twisted imagination galore.
- Practical Magic (1998)
- A couple of sisters embrace their witchcraft heritage to try and break a curse that kills any man that gets close to them. Completely silly.
