The Runaway Jury (Porota) - Drama/Thriller by Gary Fleder. Yet another film based on a novel by John Grisham (The Firm, The Pelican Brief), expect high courtroom drama, ruthless characters, and a tense build-up to the climax. Dustin Hoffman and Gene Hackman appear in their first film together, as legal adversaries, and John Cusack and Rachel Weisz play people doing things that good jurors are not supposed to do.


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Texaský masaker motorovou pílou) - Horror by Marcus Nispel. A remake of one of the greatest horror films of all time, this one has a hard act to follow. Because it's produced by Michael Bay, the current king of empty, bloated Hollywood action, one can be sure that it will bear little resemblance to the clever, simultaneously funny and frightening low-budget original. But, though there's great teen horror and bad teen horror, it's always at least somewhat fun.


Other movies playing


Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (Scooby-Doo 2: Príšery vypustené)- Comedy/Mystery by Raja Gosnell. The justly beloved cartoon series about an excitable mystery-solving dog and his four human companions returns to the silver screen in live-action/animated form. The first film provoked wildly differing responses (largely negative) and this one has been received even less enthusiastically. Fortunately, one can be sure that this film will not take itself too seriously (or at all, for that matter).


Mambo Italiano - Comedy drama by Émile Gaudrealt. In the wake of recently successful ethnic romantic comedies (Monsoon Wedding, Bend it Like Beckham, and - last and most certainly least - My Big Fat Greek Wedding) comes this tale of Italian immigrants in Montreal. Angelo (Luke Kirby) desperately wants to move out of his parents' house. But the traditional Italian couple (Paul Sorvino and Ginette Reno) are appalled by the idea of one of their own leaving home before getting married. The situation is slightly more complicated than the parents realise, however: The still closeted Angelo wants to move in with his boyfriend.
