Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Ridley Scott
Tough NYC cop Michael Douglas inadvertently loses extradited hood Yusaku Matsuda upon arrival in Japan, then plummets head-first down the neon rabbit hole into a nightmarish yakuza underworld. Violent, gut-wrenching pyrotechnics abound, depicted in the diamond-hard brilliance of Jan de Bont’s cinematography and top-notch performances from an excellent cast that includes Ken Takakura, Andy Garcia, Kate Capshaw and Tomisaburo Wakayama.

Mild-mannered author Joan Wikder (Kathleen Turner) suddenly finds herself at the center of an adventure right out of one of her own romance novels when her sister is kidnapped. Joan flies to Colombia, where she meets dashing exporter Jack Colton (Michael Douglas) and finds love and intrigue as she hunts for the hidden treasure at the center of her sister's kidnapping plot. Danny DeVito costars in this deliriously entertaining blend of romance, comedy, and action.

Director Paul Verhoeven’s super-steamy erotic thriller pits embittered police detective Michael Douglas against the bisexual queen of femmes fatale, Sharon Stone, a twisted goddess and writer who may just be the ice-pick murderer the cops are searching for. Joe Eszterhas’ screenplay is notoriously politically incorrect in this extremely entertaining chess game of terminal seduction.
