My best friend's wedding* - Watch out. Cupid is shooting poisoned darts. The champagne is spiked. Suddenly, Hollywood has decided that romantic comedy is a genre best served blackened - My Best Friend's Wedding is a heartburned guide to sabotaging your old beau's nuptials. Julia Roberts is dazzling as th sexy schemer and Cameron Diaz is the sweet princess bride Roberts is trying to knock out of the picture. (Tú svadbu treba zrušiť)


Tomorrow never dies* - The latest from a long line of thrillers involving the famous British secret agent, James Bond, played once again by Pierce Brosnan. (Zajtrajšok nikdy neumrie)


Four rooms* - Love him or hate him, Hollywood's hip, avant-noir movie producer, Quentin Tarantino, is back along with a posse of three of his directing peers. Indeed, "Four Rooms" opens the door for each one of this American quartet to showcase his or her talents. The film, set in an L.A. hotel on New Year's Eve, is also a glittering montage of show business stars such as Tim Roth, Bruce Willis, Antonio Banderas, Jennifer Beals and Valeria Golin. (Štyri Izby)


Laurel & Hardy* - Take a comedic trip into the past and laugh at the famous bumbling duo in this double feature, which is free. Laurel & Hardy's slapstick style, accentuated by the physical contrast of the rail-like Stan Laurel and the rotund Oliver Hardy, inspired humorous films and skits for decades. Be sure to get there early, as this is a popular student hangout and the gratis admission means the young academics will come in droves. (Laurel a Hardy)


Contact* - Ambitious, relatively spiritual and displaying the characteristic craft of Director Robert Zemeckis (Forest Gump), this 2 1/2-hour take on Carl Sagan's 1985 novel deals with celestial concerns that have little to do with men in black, Bat-folk or Con Air's airborne thugs. Jodie Foster makes contact with intelligent extraterrestrials. As ever, Foster conveys professional drive and vulnerability with the best, but the movie flubs its human angle. (Kontakt)


LA Confidential* - This action thriller won the prestigious New York film club award, putting it on the inside track to the Oscar for 1997. That's reason enough to check out this movie, hardly noticed when it was released in the U.S. (LA - Utajné Skutočnosti)
