Summary
  • The matrix: A computer hacker discovers that reality is nothing more than an elaborate facade called the Matrix, created by super-intelligent robots that have enslaved mankind and are using their bodies as a power source
  • Austin Powers: international man of mystery: Frozen in the 60's, secret agent Austin Powers (Myers) is thawed back into action to once again battle his archenemy Dr. Evil (Myers). With his sexy sidekick Ms. Kensington (Hurley), Austin must stop Dr. Evil's outrageous plot to control the world. But first, this time-warped swinger must get hip quick and discover that there's no free love in the 90's
  • The mask: A mild-mannered bank clerk becomes a superhero when he puts on a mystical mask

  • The Shawshank redemption: City banker Andy Dufresne arrived at Shawshank Prison in 1947. Convicted of two brutal murders, he received a double life sentence. Within the confines of the prison, Andy forms an unlikely friendship with the prison "fixer" Red. He also becomes popular with the Warden and the prison's guards, as Andy is able to use his banking experience to help the corrupt officials amass personal fortunes. With the extraordinary twist in the tale, Andy finds that survival comes down to a simple choice: get busy living or get busy dying
  • Rush hour: Jackie Chan is Inspector Lee, a Hong Kong Detective who helps confiscate millions of dollars worth of stolen Chinese artifacts from crime Lord Juntao. Seeking revenge, Juntao kidnaps the young daughter of the Chinese consul when he moves to America. Chan is sent as a diplomatic advisor and finds himself paired up with a New York cop (Chris Tucker) - a man who works alone, and wants to stay that way
  • Friday: Craig's friend Smokey has 24 hours to pay back Deebo, the 'hood's nastiest thug
  • GoodFellas: Details the rise and fall of Henry Hill, a Brooklyn kid who grows up idolizing the "wise guys" from his neighborhood. He begins hanging around the mobsters and doing odd jobs until he gains the notice of local chieftain Paulie Cicero. In his teens, Hill distinguishes himself as a "stand-up guy" by choosing jail time over ratting on his accomplices. From that moment on, he is a part of the family. Along with his partner Tommy, he rises through the ranks to become Paulie's lieutenant. Soon he finds himself the target of both the feds and the mobsters
  • The wedding singer: A young man who makes his living as a wedding singer looses his faith in love until he falls in love with a young woman on the eve of her wedding
  • Unforgiven: Bill Munny, a retired, once ruthless killer-turned-hog farmer, is flat broke. A widower with two young children to tend to, he feels he has no choice but to accept one last bounty hunter mission to find and kill two young gunslingers who brutalized and cut up the face of a local prostitute. Bill teams up with his old partner Ned and the cocky greenhorn, The Schofield Kid. The three men soon find out this bounty has many more obstacles to overcome besides just finding and killing the gunslingers. Little Bill is the town sheriff of Old Whiskey who keeps a tight hold on what goes on in his town and outlaws all firearms within the city limits. He has little respect for assassins and hired guns, and enforces his law with the most brutal of measures
