The Spotlight

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

Devil's Own* - Brad Pitt is a young Irish terrorist on the run from ruthless assassins. He finds asylum in the home of a New York cop, Harrison Ford. All hell breaks loose the moment the cop discovers the truth about the young Irishman in this action thriller directed by Alan J. Pakula.(Anjel s dvoma tvárami).

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).

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).

Surviving Picasso*- Director James Ivory and screenplay writer Ruth Prawer Jbabvala (Howard's End, A Room with a View) get together again making another subtle love story. The story follows the romantic relationship between Picasso (Anthony Hopkins) and his mistress Francoise (Natasha McElhone). (Picasso:Tvorca a Ničiteľ).

Return of the Jedi* - The conclusion of the Star Wars Trilogy ties up the whole saga. A few special digital effects add to the visual splendor on the big screen. (Návrat Jediho)

Long Kiss Goodnight* - Geena Davis is a house wife who recovers her lost memory and becomes a deadly assassin. Also stars Samuel L. Jackson. (Dlhý bozk na dobrú noc)
