WEIRD SCIENCE
1985, Universal, 94 min, USA, Dir: John Hughes

Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith play nerds who feed a centerfold into a computer and generate their own real-life fantasy woman in the form of Kelly Le Brock. As she teaches the boys how to be men, they deal with a number of comic complications and supporting characters, including a hilarious Bill Paxton.


STREETS OF FIRE
1984, Universal, 94 min, USA, Dir: Walter Hill

One of the great guilty pleasures of the 1980s, director Walter Hill’s spectacular, rock & roll-fueled pulp classic roars at you like a souped-up roadster with the radio going full blast. B-movie god Michael Paré stars as an enigmatic loner who comes back to town to save former gal-pal Diane Lane from the clutches of sinister biker chieftain Willem Dafoe (sporting one of the wickedest hair-dos known to mankind.) Outtasight, baby!


THE NICE GUYS
2016, Warner Bros., 116 min, USA, Dir: Shane Black

Set in 1970s Los Angeles, down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power. The latest collaboration between writer-director Shane Black and producer Joel Silver serves up a mix of thrills and laughs that’s as entertaining as their first, LETHAL WEAPON.
