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 instalment 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.

The Door in the Floor(Dvere v podlahe) - Drama by Tod Williams. A typically great Jeff Bridges performance and Tod Williams' appropriately understated direction make this movie about the slowly burning break-up of a marriage just the right balance of humour and subdued heartbreak. Costars Kim Basinger and Jon Foster aren't worth getting too excited over, but Bridges makes sure that it doesn't matter.


The Interpreter(Tlmočníčka) - Thriller by Sydney Pollack. Veteran filmmaker Pollack took his cameras into the United Nations headquarters in New York for this suspense story that stars Nicole Kidman as

Two Secret Service agents (Sean Penn and Catherine Keener) begin to investigate and soon deduce that Silvia may know more about the planned assassination than she lets on.
