The epitome of ‘80s action cinema.
O.K team we are going on a rescue mission to save Colonel John Matrix’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) daughter (Alyssa Milano) from the hands of the disgruntled Australian missionary “Bennett”.
To pull this off, we’ll need the help of certified badass played by Rae Dawn Chong and an artillery of enough weapons to destroy an entire villa. Chong lights up the film like a firefly, Schwarzenegger delivers everything we love him for.
A film where “I eat Green Berets for breakfast. And right now, I’m very hungry!” is an actual line that Arnold Schwarzenegger says with a straight face!
Solid, faced paced fun!

A bleakly chilling emotional travelogue of desperation, loneliness and spiritual hunger, Cruising stars Al Pacino as a naïve undercover cop who descends into the leather-bar underworld of New York’s gay S&M scene.
Widely condemned and misinterpreted on its release, Cruising emerges today as one of Friedkin’s major works - it succeeds as a police procedural, horror film (there are scenes every bit as terrifying as The Exorcist), and saga of one seemingly "decent" man’s inability to face the truth about himself.
Featuring a terrific score by composer Jack Nitzsche, with songs by The Germs.

With Dr. No, United Artists launched what would become one of the longest continuing film franchises.
Bond (Sean Connery) is on a mission to solve the mysterious murder of a fellow agent. The task sends him to Jamaica, where he joins forces with a loyal CIA agent, Felix Leiter (Jack Lord) and Leiter’s assistant.
While dodging tarantulas, “fire breathing dragons,” and a trio of assassins, known as the three blind mice, Bond meets up with the beautiful Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) and goes face to face with the evil Dr. No, a genius with devious intentions toward America’s space program!
All Pittsburgh steel mill welder Alex Owens wants to do is dance.
Combining the story of a young woman finding empowerment on the dance floor with the quick-cut editing style of MTV music videos, Flashdance set the standard for dance films in the 1980s and well after.
With a romance subplot between welder/dancer Beals and boss Michael Nouri that is especially sweet. A launching pad for actress Jennifer Beals, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and off-the-shoulder sweatshirts, the film stands as a touchstone for thrilling dance sequences and glorious excess.
Come on out boys and girls, bust out those leg-warmers, strap on those sweatbands and lock in those walkmans, while we pay respect to this seminal film.

By staging elaborate fake suicides, Harold, a bored and depressive young boy, desperately tries to gain the attention of his wealthy and absent mother.
To kill time, he goes to funerals, where he ends up meeting another regular attendee, Maude, an intriguing woman who could easily be his grandmother.
Maude has a cheerful touch of madness, regardless of her past, which has not always been joyful. At her side, Harold learns to smile and begins to find life more enjoyable.
“Make the most of your time on earth” . Harold and Maude are certainly one of the most iconic movie couples. Cat Stevens on the soundtrack reminds us “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out.”
"Don’t fuck with me, fellas. This ain’t my first time at the rodeo!”
The abusive and traumatic adoptive upbringing of Christina Crawford at the hands of her mother, screen queen Joan Crawford.
In spite of its reputation, and thanks in part to Faye Dunaway's remarkable performance as Crawford, this adaptation of Christina Crawford's memoir about her driven, abusive mother is arguably too good to qualify as camp, even if it begins (and fitfully proceeds) like a horror film.
Director Frank Perry, (The Swimmer) gives it all a certain crazed conviction. As John Waters calls it, "So Good , it’s perfect.”
A quintessential New York director (Sidney Lumet) made this quintessential New York movie in 1973, with Pacino at his best as an honest cop who turns on his crooked colleagues.
As compelling as the factual events it's based on.
Depressingly relevant today. Pacino’s blowtorch performance as the actual hero cop vaulted him to the front ranks of American actors.
“One of the grittiest, least romantic movies ever shot in New York.”– Philip French
The feature film debut of The Spice Girls (Posh, Sporty, Scary, Ginger, Baby) is nothing short of spectacular!
Climb aboard the double-decker Spice Bus for a madcap musical adventure with the sexy phenomenons of pop.
Spice World is a lighthearted comedy showing fictional events leading up to the group’s major concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall, liberally interspersed with dream sequences and flashbacks as well as surreal moments and humorous asides.

Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again...
The Room has been slaying audiences now for over 10 years throughout the world with rabid fans called Roomies screaming out lines and tossing plastic spoons in the air. Why? No matter what you’ve already heard, nothing can prepare you for the once-in-a-lifetime big-screen experience of seeing actor/director/producer Wiseau mumbling his way through this excruciating love triangle about a kind-hearted banker, his best friend and his cheating bride-to-be. It has many unforgettable scenes, but keep your eyes peeled for pictures of spoons, close football tossing, characters vanishing and emerging and even one that announces ‘I definitely have breast cancer’ as a throwaway conversation starter. Unmissable.

In stark contrast to the historically jingoistic trend in American war films, Terrence Malick’s vision of hell on earth takes on the tone of a spiritual and existential crisis - one in which nature stands by as men destroy each other for truly unclear reasons.
A masterpiece - a Malick masterpiece, telling a powerfully written, superbly acted story that casts new light on his characteristic themes of nature and culture, thought and language, humanity and inhumanity, paradise lost and transcendence found.
A soulful quest,in the thick of misery and fear, for the meaning of our lives. Epic, sensitive, and stunningly beautiful.
One of Christopher Nolan’s favourite movies.
