  • Life is a contact sport and football is life when three-time Academy Award®- winning filmmaker Oliver Stone and a dynamic acting ensemble explore the fortunes of the Miami Sharks in Any Given Sunday.

    Embattled Sharks coach Tony D’Amato (Al Pacino) faces a full-on blitz of team strife plus a new owner (Cameron Diaz) sure Tony is way too Old School. An injured quarterback (Dennis Quaid), a flashy, bull-headed backup QB (Jamie Foxx), a slithery team doctor (James Woods) and a running back with an incentive-laden contract (LL Cool J) also fuel stories that zigzag like diagrams in a playbook.

  • Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is a slightly cynical veteran prison guard on death row in the 1930’s. His faith, and sanity, deteriorated by watching men live and die, Edgecomb is about to have a complete turn around in attitude. Enter John Coffey (Oscar nominated Michael Clarke Duncan). 

    He’s eight feet tall. He has hands the size of waffle irons. He’s been accused of the murder of two children… and he’s afraid to sleep in a cell without a night-light. And Edgecomb, as well as the other prison guards – Brutus, a sympathetic guard, and Percy, a stuck-up, perverse, and violent person, are in for a strange experience that involves intelligent mice, brutal executions, and the revelation about Coffey’s innocence and his true identity. This Academy Award nominated tale is the second collaboration from the writer (Stephen King) and the director of Shawshank Redemption.

  • Somewhere near the North Pole, something very special is happening. Join the magical journey of an unlikely group of loveable friends – a little polar bear, a seal pup, four manically depressed lemmings and some gullible seagulls, in the adventure of a lifetime. 

    The story of a friendship so powerful it could warm even the coldest parts of the earth. Based on the best selling books by Hans de Beer.

  • Sooner or later the truth must be told. Oscar Novak will finally come out of the closet and declare before friends, parents, the cosmos and the 11-o'clock news that he is , well, straight. Or will he?

    Mattehew Perry, Neve Campbell and Dylan McDermott are the entango'd threesome of this hip, out-and-out (and outed!) gender bender also starring Oliver Platt. A business tycoon (McDermott) who wrongly thinks Oscar (Perry) is gay asks him to spy on his girlfriend (Campbell). Oscar, unwilling to hurt his chances of winning a lucartive architectural contact from the mogul, agrees... and falls madly in love. Do ask, do tell. For hot stars and steadily ramped-up comedy complications, it takes Three to Tango.

  • Absurdly comic, highly kinetic, at times shockingly emotional, Three Kings begins when the Gulf War is over. Amid the partying and confusion, four American soldiers (George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Ice Cube and Spike Jonze), determined to take home more than sand fleas, go off into the Iraqi desert to find millions in stolen Kuwaiti bullion. 

    They are plunged into the heart of a democratic uprising that spins the day and their lives out of control. David O. Russell’s unique tapestry of humour, violence and history makes Three Kings - “Far more intelligent and perceptive than most actioners, yet with enough thrills and spills to satisfy adrenaline junkies.” Channel 4 Film.

  • He walks the walk. He talks the talk. New York is about to encounter a most unlikely mobster.

    Hugh Grant plays dapper Manhattan art auctioneer Michael Felgate in this lively fish-out-of-water comedy romp. Eager to marry Gina (Jeanne Tripplehorn), the lovely teacher he’s been dating for three months, Michael feels it’s time he meet her family. What he met is the family. Gina’s father Frank (James Caan) is a gangster, a “juicer” who extracts money for the mob. Now the squeeze is on Michael to use the auction house as a money laundering scam for dubious artwork...and plunging fumbling, bumbling Michael into a world where he must pose as a notorious wise guy called Mickey Blue Eyes. You’ll call him hilarious.

  • Something huge is on the horizon. Hogarth Hughes just rescued an enormous robot that fell from the stars to Earth. Now young Hogarth has one very big friend and an even bigger problem: How do you keep at 50-foot-tall, steel-eating (junkyard cars are especially tasty) giant a secret? 

    It’s even harder when a nosy government agent arrives in town to hunt down the ‘alien invader’ and the combined land, sea and air might of the US military is sent to demolish the giant. The result: an incredible adventure that’s part metal, part magic, all heart.

  • Researchers on the undersea laboratory Aquatica have genetically altered the brains of captive sharks to develop a potential cure for Alzheimer’s disease. There is one unexpected side effect. The sharks are getting smarter. Which could mean trouble for the researchers. And lunch for the sharks. 

    You can swim but you can’t hide when a tropical storm floods Aquatica, plunging Samuel L. Jackson, Saffron Burrows, Thomas Jane, LL Cool J and the rest of the crew into a harrowing battle of wits against sleek killing–and thinking! – machines. Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2) directs, squeezing nerve-jangling suspense and thrills from a film that’s a monster movie, a chase movie, a movie that snaps hold and won’t let go. Dive in.

  • Stanley Kubrick’s daring last film is many things. It is a compelling psychosexual journey. A haunting dreamscape. A riveting tale of suspense. A major milestone in the careers of stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. And “a worthy final chapter to a great director’s career” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). 

    Cruise plays Dr. William Harford, a New Yorker who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage — and may even ensnare him in a lurid murder mystery — after his wife’s (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. Graceful tracking shots, controlled pacing, rich colours, startling images: bravura traits that make Kubrick a filmmaker for the ages are here to keep everyone’s eyes wide open.

  • If you’re male or female or of any particular ethnic, sexual, religious or national persuasion, you may be offended by this movie. Or perhaps this movie may make you laugh more than any other recent comedy. 

    Fame. Authority. Show tunes. The military. Race. Sex. Religion. The way to a woman’s heart. The creators of TV’s South Park skewer all in a feature-length story that plunges an outraged U.S. into war with Canada after South Park’s school kids sneak into a restricted Canadian-made film and emerge, their fragile little minds warped, spouting expletives that would make a sex-shop proprietor blush. What? Your mind is already warped? Well, friend, looks like this movie is perfect for you.
