Cold Mountain (Návrat do Cold Mountain) - Romantic epic by Anthony Minghella. The gossip surrounding this film - about its excessive costs and its being shunned by the Oscars (except for Renée Zellweger's Best Supporting Actress win) - seems to have obscured its quality. Though not flawless, it is a beautifully shot and acted, well-paced, compelling, and accomplished piece of filmmaking. And Nicole Kidman and Jude Law sure are purty.


Torque (Zbesilosť na dvoch Kolesách) - Action by Joseph Kahn. The debut film of a highly successful music video director who has worked with Destiny's Child, Eminem, U2, and many more. It has something to do with biker gangs, but it basically looks like the obnoxious younger brother of The Fast and the Furious. Hopefully the presence of Ice Cube makes it at least somewhat palatable.

Something's Gotta Give (Milovať je zábavné) - Romantic comedy by Nancy Meyers. As usual, Jack Nicholson plays his charming self. But this time it is blatantly obvious, as he plays Harry, an aging playboy with a penchant for younger women. After suffering a heart attack at the home of his young girlfriend's mother (Diane Keaton), he finds himself, for the first time ever, attracted to a woman his own age. But his young and virile doctor (Keanu Reeves) begins to develop similar feelings.


Paycheck (Výplata) - Sci-fi/Thriller by John Woo. Hong Kong genius turned fairly boring Hollywood filmmaker Woo adapts a short story by cult novelist Philip K Dick,
