- Others, The (2001)
- Set during World War II, a woman and her photosensitive children live in a darkened mansion believing their home is haunted. Impressive enough psychological horror.
- Sixth Sense, The (1999)
- Chilling psychological thriller about a young boy visited by spirits who don't realise they're dead.. and the child psychologist who tries to cure him. Very clever and demands a second viewing.
- What Lies Beneath (2000)
- The wife of a professor investigates the murder of a beautiful college student who has been appearing to her. Nice twists and turns, with lots of suspense.
- Gift, The (2000)
- Annie is a recently widowed mother of three boys in a small rural town with a gift for giving psychic readings, which gets her into all kinds of strife when she advises a woman to leave her husband. Creepy, starts out promising but becomes corny.
- Oscar and Lucinda (1998)
- Mid 1800's England, Oscar and Lucinda are two oddballs who meet on a ship with an instant attraction and form a romantic relationship based on trust. Nice adaptation of the book, with beautiful cinematography.
- Under the Sand (2001)
- A haunting portrayal of a woman's struggle to come to terms with the disappearance of her husband while vacationing at the beach, which really takes grief to another level. Simple, tender, and quite clever.
- Ferngully - The Last Rainforest (1992)
- Great little animation for younger viewers, with a forthright 'save–the–planet' message for the 90's that educated while still managing to entertain – and would definitely stick in the memory of impressionable young minds. Adorable characters.
- DVD $39.95
- Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)
- Kevin is back, but this time he's left alone with a heap of cash and credit cards in New York City – and when the bad guys show up again he's more than ready for them. Missing a bit of the charm of the first.
- DVD $24.95, $24.95
- Home Alone (1990)
- Loved by kids of all ages, an 8 year–old Kevin finds himself left behind at home while the family fly to France for Christmas. There's never a dull moment.
- DVD $19.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
- Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
- Entertaining family flick about a father desperate to stay in his children's life after a divorce, so poses as a grandmotherly home–helper. Some enormously funny moments, while remaining quite heartfelt.
