The Spotlight

Jerry Maguire* - Show me the money! A sports agent, played wonderfully by Tom Cruise, has moral questions about what is important - money, or family. Though an entertaining film, the portrayal of sports in America today as revolving only around the dollar is depressing. (Jerry Maguire).

Dante's peak* - A scientist (Pierce Brosnan) paranoid yet fascinated with volcanos saves a small town from an active volcano, which ruins everything in its path. Directed by Roger Donaldson, the film's only plus is the array of special effects in which Hollywood shows off it's high-tech computer animation. Also stars Linda Hamilton. (Rozpútané peklo)

Fierce creatures* - The cast of the wonderfully funny "A Fish Called Wanda" is reunited in a brand new story. Jamie Lee Curtis is seductively funny; John Cleese looks a lot older but his expressions carry the show; and Kevin Kline and Michael Palin deliver first-rate comedy. (Divoké Stvorenia)

Stealing beauty* - Bernardo Bertolucci directed this film about a 19 year-old girl, played by beautiful but awkward Liv Tyler - the daughter of Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler -who joins a group of Bohemians. She helps change the lives of three men, one of them played by Jeremy Irons who is obsessed with her. The film will bring a few tears. (Zvodná Krása).

Portrait of a lady* - New Zealand's Jane Campion, famous for her three Oscars for The Piano, directed this film based on the classic novel by Henry James. It's an effective psychological drama about a young American, Nicole Kidman, from high society who decides to live in Europe at the end of 19th century (Portrét dámy).

Metro* - Eddie Murphy hits the big screen in a fast-paced thriller. Though the plot is not new, two unlikely cops catch a frightful psychopath - who then escapes from prison with one thing on his mind - revenge, Murphy is witty and there are enough creative surprises - mind you not plot twists - to keep you in your seat. (Policajt zo San Francisca)
