More It’s not easy to make the “cop chases a serial killer” plot seem fresh and compelling but the movie Switchback does just that and more. I do not want to reveal too much but I can tell you that you will never look at one well known actor the same way after experiencing how calm and creepy he plays a serial killer. Not seen by many in the theaters, you now have a chance to view this underappreciated intense thriller.

More You can’t stop the thunder in this classic NASCAR movie starring Tom Cruise (Cole Trickle) as a recently converted stock car driver with nothing to lose and a lot to gain. If you haven’t seen Days of Thunder it almost feels like Top Gun meets Talladega Nights: The Ballard of Ricky Bobby. This movie compares to Talladega Nights because of the rivalry factor between opposing drivers of the same race team. Cole will stop it nothing to achieve his dreaming of winning the Indianapolis 500 and beat his rival Russ Wheeler. Does he take home the checkered flag? There’s only one way to find out.

Leprechaun

“Try as they will and try as they might, who steals me gold won’t live through the night.”…

More “Try as they will and try as they might, who steals me gold won’t live through the night.” A father and daughter move into the house where a leprechaun has been trapped for the last 10 years inside a crate in the basement. After the nasty little creature escapes, he goes on a relentless search for his stolen gold coins, terrorizing those in his way. Warwick Davis (Willow, Return of the Jedi) plays the monstrous leprechaun but the movie is most notable for being the feature film debut of Jennifer Aniston, prior to her Friends’ stardom, and for spawning several entertaining sequels.

More Finally! A romantic comedy for people who hate romantic comedies! Writer/ Director David Wain, (of the comedy trio Stella and Wet Hot American Summer) brings us a hilarious love story parody that’s anything but sappy. When Joel (Paul Rudd) and Molly (Amy Poehler) first meet, it’s hate at first sight. Only after they make fun of every romantic cliché in the book do they finally end up together. Or do they…? It doesn’t really matter. This film is about is a truly silly and goofy comedy, with a great cast of comedians. Think of an updated Airplane or Mel Brooks film! Surely you’ll love this one too!

More In a world where women really can do it all, funny lady Lake Bell writes, directs and stars in this movie! In A World… is a hilarious inside look into an often-overlooked corner of Hollywood, voice over acting. Carol (Lake Bell) is a mediocre voice coach living in the shadow of her super successful father, Sam (Fred Melamed). That is until Carol lands a huge gig that puts her in the big leagues competing right alongside her father and his arrogant successor, Gustav (Ken Marino). Lake Bell shines in her writing and directorial debut, so sit back, relax and enjoy what she has to say!

More Get back to 1985 with this wonderful time capsule of a movie that has all the elements of a Spielberg-esque summer classic from the era, even if it doesn’t quite live up to them. The film was directed by Joe Dante who gave us Gremlins the year before and marks the first starring roles of Ethan Hawke and the late River Phoenix as a pair of kids who build a spaceship and discover aliens. Unfortunately film was rushed into theaters before the finishing touches could be put on it so the flaws are pretty glaring but what remains is still quite enjoyable and features the special effects of ILM (Star Wars), creature effects by Rob Bottin (The Thing) and music from the late great Jerry Goldsmith (Poltergeist).

More Don’t be put off by the black and white! I assure you, 10 minutes in you’ll find it to be a charming contrast with the frigid American Plains. But enough with the artsy talk!! "Nebraska” reminds you of why you love to love-hate your family. From cursing grannys to the bitter sweet feeling of never letting go of a dream, even if insanely unrealistic, you’ll find a lot of common ground with the characters and family get togethers.
