CHILDREN OF MEN
2006, Universal, 109 min, USA, Dir: Alfonso Cuaron

It is 2027, a dystopian future in which humans have lost the ability to procreate. Former activist Theo Faron (Clive Owen) embarks on a dangerous mission to transport a miraculously pregnant woman to a sanctuary of sea-bound scientists in Alfonso Cuaron's revelatory science fiction meditation, heightened by the mesmerizing bravura of Emmanuel Lubezki's cinematography. With Julianne Moore and Michael Caine.


SPACEBALLS
1987, MGM/Park Circus, 96 min, USA, Dir: Mel Brooks

“May the schwartz be with you.” Bill Pullman, John Candy and Rick Moranis head up the cast in Mel Brooks' hilarious riff on STAR WARS, which is as much a satire on that movie's impact on the film industry (with particularly sly jabs at corporate merchandising) as it is on STAR WARS itself. Brooks is a riot in two roles (including the Yoda-inspired "Yoghurt"), with diminutive Rick Moranis marching around as “Dark Helmet,” Dom DeLuise voicing the pepperoni-and-cheese blob Pizza the Hut, and Daphne Zuniga rounds out the cast in the Princess Leia part (here, Princess Vespa).


JURASSIC PARK III
2001, Universal, 92 min, USA, Dir: Joe Johnston

Bizarre and wealthy thrill-seekers Paul and Amanda Kirby (William H. Macy and Tea Leoni) convince Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) to travel with them to Isla Sorna, the second InGen dinosaur lab. An unexpected plane landing finds the party in the midst of creatures unknown - and lethal - to the lab workers. Things go completely haywire when Dr. Grant discovers massive Velociraptor nests, and vicious dinosaur mothers willing to protect their young at any cost.
