  • If you think special government agent James West is fast with a six-shooter, wait until he lays a quip on you! Megahit star Will Smith plays West, reuniting with Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld in an effects-loaded, shoot-from-the-lip spectacular.

Salma Hayek is mysterious adventuress Rita Escobar. And all manner of geared-up 1860s gadgets – from belt-buckle derringers to surprise-packed billiard balls to a walking, eight-story, steam-and-steel tarantula – help make Wild Wild West a Wow Wow West!

  • Perception: That everyday world is real.  Reality: That world is a hoax, an elaborate deception spun by all-powerful machines of artificial intelligence that control us.  

    Mind-blowing stunts. Techno-slamming visuals. Mega-kick action. Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne lead the fight to free humankind in The Matrix, the cyber thriller that you will watch again and again. Written and directed by the Wachowski brothers (Bound), the story sears, the special effects stake out new movie-making territory – the movie leaves you breathless.

  • Boozer, skirt chaser, careless father. You could create your own list of reporter Steve Everett’s faults but there’s no time. A San Quentin death row prisoner is slated to die at midnight – a man Everett has suddenly realised is innocent. 

    Clint Eastwood memorably plays Everett in True Crime, a savvy beat-the-clock thriller. Isaiah Washington, Denis Leary, Lisa Gay Hamilton, James Woods, Diane Venora and others populate this suspense tale that tightens to nerve-frying intensity intercutting the parallel stories of the inmate and Everett’s scramble to save him…and perhaps lift his own life out of the trash heap along the way. Everett is harried, determined and trying not to self-destruct. And the clock is ticking.

  • Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal team with Lisa Kudrow, Chazz Palminteri and director/co-writer Harold Ramis to make you a comedy offer you can’t refuse in this laugh-out-loud mob hit. 

    De Niro, deftly spoofing the wise guy roles that have been a staple of his estimable career, plays powerful New York crime family racketeer Paul Vitti. Crystal, always one joke ahead of sleeping with the fishes, is shrink Ben Sobel, who has just days to resolve Vitti’s emotional crisis and turn him into a happy, well-adjusted gangster. Yes, Sobel is a family psychiatrist. But surely this isn’t the kind of family he had in mind.

And she knows the message spoke to her in a way that profoundly touched her heart.  Kevin Costner as Garret and Robin Wright Penn as Theresa bring high-voltage starpower to Message in a Bottle, a tale of love lost and found based on Nicholas Sparks’ best-seller. “You choose – the past or the future. Pick one and stick with it,” Garret’s spry father Dodge (Paul Newman) advises. The advice sticks. So does the impact of this tender, movingly filmed tale.

    Porter makes his living outside the law. So when his partners in a heist rip off his $70,000 share and leave him for dead, there’s only one way for Porter to settle things: his way. And that sends him on a vendetta that will have a lot of lowlifes gaping at the talking end of Porter’s fat revolver. Crooked cops. Street gangs. Spineless flyspecks. Crime bosses. Anyone and everyone standing between Porter and his 70 grand are going to know he’s back… with a vengeance.

Before you can say “Scooby snacks!”, the gang is on the case, tangling with bumbling mummies, monster turkeys — and (zoinks!) a ghostly secret hidden in the Ravencroft family’s past!

You’ve got rare Hollywood magic when You’ve Got Mail.
