16 Blocks Jack Moseley (Bruce Willis) is an aging, burned-out and booze-sodden New York cop shuffling remotely through his daily police duties. When Moseley is entrusted with transporting prisoner Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) the sixteen blocks uptown to the courthouse, he finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place. Eddie is the prime witness in an internal investigation into police corruption and a group of corrupt cops want him killed. Cornered by the dirty cops, who are led by Jack’s ex-partner (David Morse), Jack is given the chance to hand over Eddie and walk away, but he’s driven by some instinctive, long-buried moral courage and escapes with his prisoner. From there, Jack and Eddie must dodge the bad cops as well as the forces of justice who have been lead to believe Jack has run amok.

Van Helsing In the original “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, Professor Abraham Van Helsing was a man of medicine, a physician, not a secret agent with memory loss who worked for the Roman Catholic Church. However, in “Van Helsing”, Gabriel Van Helsing (played with swaggering tough-guy authority by Hugh Jackman) comes across more as a religious-based 007 than as anyone or anything out of Stoker’s immortal novel. In fact, “Van Helsing” goes on to borrow a premise even from “House of Frankenstein” (the 1944 Universal Studios monster flick starring Boris Karloff, Glenn Strange, Lon Chaney, Jr. and John Carradine) by uniting Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, his Monster and a Wolfman. One of the conceits in “Van Helsing” is that Dracula financed Dr. Frankenstein’s continued experimentation into the creation of life through the animation of dead flesh. Video Presentation: The HD DVD in 1080i is absolutely stunning, offering picture clarity that rivals what’s presented on the big screen. The snow-swept ...

Firewall Jack Stanfield (Harrison Ford) is an executive responsible for the tight computerized security system for a group of Seattle banks. Just as Stanfield’s bank is bought in a merger with a huge conglomerate, his home is invaded and his family held hostage by a group of high-tech thugs lead by Cox (Paul Bettany). Using compact, portable surveillance technology, they keep Stanfield and his family closely monitored by audio and video, leaving them unable to make their situation known. They instruct Jack to go to work as usual and to obey all of Cox’s instructions. At the bank, Cox turns up, all smiles, pretending to be a business customer and has Jack take him on a tour of the bank’s secure computer vault room. In the computer room, Cox tells Jack to log into the computers and transfer $100 million dollars (in $10,000 increments taken from the 10,000 richest accounts) into an off-shore ...

Perfect Storm, The Off the coast of Gloucester, Massachusetts, Fisherman Billy Tyne (Clooney) and his crew (Walberg, Reilly, Fichtner etc.) return from a month at sea with a disappointing catch. Currently suffering from a patch of bad luck, the determined Tyne is dead set on breaking this demoralizing streak and cuts his crew’s shore leave short and sets out again three days later. After weeks at sea, and another poor yield, Tyne sets his boat for the distant Flemish Cap where he finally scores a dream catch and heads home with a revitalized crew—but fate holds a nasty surprise for them. Three separate storms are about to collide mid-sea and create a record-breaking atmospheric cataclysm (the Perfect Storm of the title)…and Tyne is heading straight into it. Based on events that occurred in late October 1991, “The Perfect Storm” tells the gripping and tragic story of the swordfishing boat The Andrea Gail, its crew and the Gloucester ...
