Collection of contemporary gangster films. In 'Mean Streets' (1973) four Italian-Americans from New York's lower East Side hang around at a local bar. Charlie (Harvey Keitel), the most responsible of the group, tries to protect his girlfriend's cousin, Johnny Boy (Robert De Niro), from the local debt collectors, but his young charge seems determined to live fast and die young. Heavily influenced by the French New Wave, 'Mean Streets' provided the first high-profile success for director Martin Scorsese and star De Niro. In 'Scarface' (1983), up-and-coming gangster Tony Montana (Al Pacino) arrives in Miami as a Cuban refugee. With his friend Manny (Stephen Bauer), Tony carries out a hit on a politician, earning him the gratitude of drug dealer Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia). Tony rises rapidly in the 'organization', but courts disaster when he becomes involved with Lopez's cocaine-addicted wife, Elvira (Michelle Pfeiffer). In 'Carlito's Way' (1993), Carlito (Pacino) is a Hispanic drugs boss just released from prison. Determined to go straight and move to the Bahamas with his girlfriend, Gail (Penelope Ann Miller), Carlito is tempted back to the wrong side of the law by his lawyer, nerdish coke-head David Kleinfeld (Sean Penn), for 'one last job'. Brian De Palma directs this visually eloquent film about a man's inevitable tragic demise with his familiar penchant for the big set piece and violent action. In 'Casino' (1995), Sam 'Ace' Rothstein (De Niro) is the mob's frontman for a billion dollar Las Vegas casino. The story begins in 1973; Ace falls for hooker Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone), while boyhood companion Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci) is appointed as his muscle at the club. Over the years various jealousies surface and erupt in a series of violent betrayals and, ultimately, the destruction of Rothstein's empire. In 'American Gangster' (2007), when his boss dies, underworld driver Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) seizes his chance and begins to build his own criminal empire. Utilising the bodies of dead US soldiers, Lucas begins importing heroin direct from South-East Asia, increasing purity on the street, and undercutting his rivals in one swoop. Before long he's amassed a fortune, bringing him to the attention of maverick policeman Ritchie Roberts (Russell Crowe), an honest cop in an otherwise corrupt force, who makes it his business to shut Lucas down. Finally, in 'Public Enemies' (2009), set in 1930s gangland America, Johnny Depp stars as the charismatic bank robber John Dillinger. Dillinger's audacious raids and subsequent jailbreaks thrilled the American public as their sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into Depression reached an all-time low. Despite his status as a folk hero, Dillinger was declared 'Public Enemy Number One' by J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) and became the prime target of Hoover's fledgling FBI, headed by Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale). Marion Cotillard co-stars as gangster's moll Billie Frechette.
Skateboarding means everything to Brian Kelly. That is until his adopted Vietnamese brother is murdered and he sets off to solve the crime and bring the killers to justice.
His skateboarding prowess, for which 'Gleaming the Cube' is slang, becomes a life-saving tool as he has to escape from the killers who are chasing him.
A band of specialist hunters face a terrifying creature that stalks the residents of a quiet rural village, in this horror from director Louis Morneau. With his village beset by an ancient and deadly predator, Daniel (Guy Wilson) joins forces with a mysterious group of professional hunters (Ed Quinn, Steven Bauer, Adam Croasdell) to finally hunt down the creature. But as the bloodletting rises, and the villagers start to turn on themselves as their neighbours transform, the group soon realise they're up against a fiercely formidable foe, and one that is more dangerous than they had ever imagined.
From the streets of Fargo, North Dakota to the markets of Algiers (but mostly closer to home) Rebecca Lukens has lived a long life enriched by education, teaching, writing, and maybe most of all by family. In a wry, witty, and engaging voice she presents bright snapshots of herself, her parents and siblings, her four children, and her grandchildren. Her vignettes have a lovely modesty, a full-heartedness, a wonderful sense of humor, and an aliveness to life's possibilities on every page, and together they create a stirring collage that pays close attention to the upheavals and transformations of the 20th century--particularly the changing roles of women. Enthusiastic, alert, and upbeat, IT'S BEEN GREAT is that rare book that fully earns its exclamation mark.
Fast-paced action movie in which a high-flying politician's past as an NSA operative threatens to derail his new career. Chip Majors (James DuMont) is the Governor of Louisiana and everyone's top tip to be the Vice Presidential nominee of Presidential hopeful Senator Edmonds (Steven Bauer). Majors' past threatens to catch up with him, however, when a remorseless group, led by Graham (Billy Zane), launches a series of bids to assassinate him. A frantic battle for survival ensues, in which Majors will need to draw on all his former skills to make it through. Salvaging his political career from the secrets of his past may well be another matter.
Four action thrillers featuring WWE champions. '12 Rounds' (2009) stars John Cena as Detective Danny Baxter, who discovers that his girlfriend Molly (Ashley Scott) has been kidnapped by his old adversary, ex-con Miles Jackson (Aidan Gillen). In order to secure Molly's safe release, Baxter must now battle against the clock to complete 12 rounds of dangerous challenges carefully plotted by Jackson through the streets of New Orleans. 'The Marine' (2006) also stars John Cena, this time as John Triton, an injured US Marine who returns home from duty only to have his wife kidnapped by a ruthless criminal. Robert Patrick stars as the villainous Rome, who is more than willing to kill if it means staying one step ahead of the law. With nothing left to lose and enough training to take down a small army, the hard-fighting Triton sets out to rescue his wife, and ensure that the psychotic Rome receives a painful taste of justice. 'Behind Enemy Lines 3 - Columbia' stars Joe Manganiello and WWE's Mr Kennedy. In the jungles of war-torn Colombia, a covert team of US Navy SEALs mount an attack on Colombian special forces in order to rescue a hostage and clear their own names after being framed for murder. 'Walking Tall' (2004) stars The Rock as Chris Vaughn, a recently-retired member of the US Army's Special Forces, who returns home to help run the family's once-prosperous small-town sawmill business. He soon realises that since he's been away the formerly sedate little town has become a veritable den of iniquity, thanks mainly to the various criminal activities of his old high school rival Jay Hamilton (Neal McDonough). Frustrated by the feeble attempts of the local law enforcement officers to take control of the situation, Vaughn enlists the help of his old pal Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville) and together the two men take matters into their own hands.
