  • Academy Award® winners Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington headline and Alan J. Pakula (Presumed Innocent, All the President’s Men) directs this first-rate thriller based on the John Grisham bestseller. 

    Two Supreme Court justices have been murdered and a lone law student (Roberts) turns her suspicions about the deaths into a speculative brief that sends shock waves into the highest levels of government. She and a determined investigative reporter (Washington) want to tell the world what they have uncovered – if they can live long enough to tell it. The race is on and these two aren’t just runners they are moving targets.

  • Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones race through this breathless manhunt movie inspired by one classic TV series and which in turn inspired yet another. Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who committed the crime. 

    Jones (the 1993 Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Los Angeles Film Critics Award winner as Best Supporting Actor) is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a US marshal. They are hunted and hunter. And as directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out.

  • Freeways are clogged. Terror stalks our cities. At shops and restaurants, the customer is seldom right. The pressures of big-city life can anger anyone. But Bill Foster is more than angry. He’s out to get even. “I’m going home,” Foster says as he abandons his gridlocked car on the hottest day of the year. 

    Instead, he walks straight into an urban nightmare by turns absurdly funny and shatteringly violent. Academy Award™ winner Michael Douglas is Foster, an ordinary guy at war with the frustrations of daily living. Fellow Oscar® winner Robert Duvall is the savvy cop obsessed with stopping Foster’s city-wide rampage. Falling Down is their story, a spellbinding, unconventional thriller that asks: “Are we falling apart?”

  • Thriller specialist Philip Noyce (Patriot Games, The Bone Collector) directs three splendid actors. Sam Neill (Event Horizon, Bicentennial Man), Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut) and Billy Zane (Titanic) – in riveting performances. 

    Joe and Rae Ingram (Neill and Kidman) do the right thing and rescue the half-delirious sole survivor (Zane) of a crippled schooner. But soon the stranger will plunge the unwary pair into an intense battle of cat and mouse. And life or death.

  • Harrison Ford and filmmaker Roman Polanski count thrillers among their best work. Frantic teams, USA Today’s Mike Clark wrote, “an imaginatively cast superstar and the greatest living suspense director in fine form.” Ford plays an American doctor whose wife (Betty Buckley) suddenly vanishes in Paris. 

    To find her, he navigates a puzzling web of language, locale, laissez-faire cops, triplicate-form bureaucrats and a defiant, mysterious waif (Emmanuelle Seigner) who knows more than she tells. “It is the spirit of Hitchcock that reigns here” (Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times). And the consummate skill of Polanski and Ford that’s on dazzling display.

  • Ten years in planning, Sergio Leone's epic Once Upon a Time in America portrays 50 years of riveting underworld history and offers rich roles to a remarkable cast. 

    Robert De Niro and James Woods play lifelong Lower East Side pals whose wary partnership unravels in death and mystery. Strong support comes from Tuesday Weld, Joe Pesci, Jennifer Connelly, Elizabeth McGovern and the young actors playing the cenral characters as ghetto kids.

  • Phoenix cop Ben Shockley’s dream of breaking “the big case” has faded over time. His assignment to escort from Las Vegas “a nothing witness for a nothing trial” seems like just another meaningless exercise. Until the fireworks start. 

    Clint Eastwood runs The Gauntlet into an explosive movie embodying its title with a vengeance. The witness is a hardened hooker (Sondra Locke) whom everyone — including Vegas oddsmakers — wants dead. Trapped between both sides of the law, the two must survive an obstacle course of raging gunfire, blazing cars, swooping helicopters, murderous ambushes, crazed bikers and crooked police. Building to a ferocious finale that shoots an armoured bus to smithereens with more than 8,000 bullets, The Gauntlet is a trip you can’t miss.

  • When Detective Harry Callahan stops a liquor store hostage standoff in his own no-nonsense way, he gets busted back to personnel. But not for long. When terrorists rob an arms warehouse and go on a bloody extortion spree, San Francisco’s leaders quickly seek out Callahan – The Enforcer.

    Clint Eastwood returns for his third Callahan caper, joined this time by a new partner, Tyne Daly as Inspector Kate Moore, who has two jobs: tracking down the terrorists – and winning Harry’s confidence. Stoked with brisk humour, hard-hitting mayhem and the high-impact team of Eastwood and Daly, this exciting outing carves another winning notch in the handle of Harry’s .44 magnum.

  • On a hot Brooklyn afternoon, two optimistic nobodies set out to rob a bank. Sonny (Al Pacino) is the mastermind, Sal (John Cazale) is the follower and disaster is the result. Because the cops, crowds, TV cameras and even the pizza man have arrived. 

    Pacino and director Sidney Lumet (collaborators on Serpico) reteam for this boisterous comedy thriller that earned six Academy Award® nominations (including Best Picture) and won an Oscar® for Frank Pierson’s streetwise screenplay.

  • Celebrate martial arts legend Bruce Lee’s final film. Sent to an exotic island by his government, a spy (Lee) competes in a deadly tournament by day and infiltrates a ruthless crime lord’s illegal drug operation by night. 

    With plot twists, exquisite cinematography and bone – crushing fight scenes choreographed by Lee himself. Enter the Dragon remains cinema’s most influential martial arts action film.
