The Spotlight

Ransom - Ron Howard delivers an intense action thriller with no real good guys that includes Mel Gibson. (Výkupné)

The Glimmer Man - Steven Seagal hits the screen in a bang up thriller, which if that is your thing, it's a good one. (Sám proti zlu..)

Kazzam - Shaquille O'Neil tries his hand at acting (HA!) in a movie that became a Sega video game. (Kazzam)

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)

Star trek: First Contact - The second big screen movie from the "Next Generation" crew captained by Patrick Stewart. The Enterprise crew races back in time to save Earth from the civilization swallowing Borg. A thoughtful film even for non-trekkies. (Star Trek: Prvy kontakt)

That Thing You Do - Tom Hanks directs, and stars in a look at what happens to a one-hit wonder rock and roll band in the sixties. Hanks wrote the film while all the hype for Forrest Gump was at its peak. It's a cute movie about unexpected fame, that will keep you tapping your knee. (To je náš hit!)

High School High - John Lovitz is a brand new teacher with some experiemental ideas to cope with a tough school of kids. It's a crazy comedy from the director of Hot Shots, Hart Bochner. (Nebezpečné Nezmysly)
