Guess Who(Hádaj kto) - Comedy by Kevin Rodney Sullivan. The classic Sydney Poitier-starring Guess Who's Coming to Dinner gets the compulsory remake, except the comedy is now front and centre and the races are inverted: The suitor is now white and his prospective in-laws are black. Ashton Kutcher stars as Simon Green, a successful but nervous young man very much in love with Theresa Jones (Zoe Saldana). All seems to be going well, until Zoe's father, Percy (Bernie Mac), decides to meet his potential future son-in-law. Needless to say, Percy was not expecting a white boy - and a very clumsy one at that.

Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith(Star Wars: Epizóda III: Pomsta Sithov) - Science Fiction by George Lucas. Though it isn't perfect, the supposedly final installment of the Star Wars saga is easily the best of the prequels (combined). What this means is that it's actually enjoyable. It may suffer from some poor acting, dialogue, and pacing, but the story of Anakin Skywalker's (Hayden Christensen) gravitation to the Dark Side is compelling and frequently exciting. And, unlike its two predecessors, it's absolutely worthy of the original Star Wars name.
