The Spotlight

Last man standing * - Bruce Willis stars as a mysterious stranger, (and assassin) who arrives in a small American town divided by corrupt police and alcohol smugglers during Prohibition. Christopher Walken also stars in this action/thriller with Rambo-like violence. (Posledný zostáva)

Kolja (SC) - A truly great, touching film about life in Czechoslovakia before the 1989 Velvet Revolution took place. Up for an Oscar as best foreign film in 1996. Even if you only know a little Slovak, it is worth taking in the images and sharing with the audience. (Kolja)

Evita * - The epic musical about Evita Perón, Argentina's famous actress and first lady, stars Madonna, and Antonio Banderas. Though Madonna has received most of the publicity while singing to the music of Andrew Loyd Webber, many critics say Banderas steals the show. (Evita)

Mars Attacks * - A hilarious spoof on alien movies by director Tim Burton (Batman, Beetlejuice) starring Jack Nicholson as the U.S. president, Glenn Close as the first lady, and such stars as Pierce Bronson, Michael J. Fox and of course the aliens. Go see if the good guys win this time. (Mars Útočí!)

One Fine Day * - Michelle Pfeiffer is an ambitious architect with a five year old son. George Clooney, the newest Batman, is an ambitious journalist with a little daughter. They meet and the stars bring them together in this feel-good comedy. (Báječný deň)

Ransom *- Director Ron Howard delivers a spine-tingling thriller starring Mel Gibson as a semi-crooked businessman whose son gets kidnapped by a group of professional abductors. Also starring René Russo as Gibson's wife, this film gives new definition to the word "ruthless." (Výkupné)

Film Legend: (*) - Original Version (D) - Dubbed (SC) - Slovak/Czech (ET) - English Titles
