“Sex and the City” fans rejoice! Carrie Bradshaw and her girls Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda are back, and this time, they’re coming to the big screen with this highly anticipated adaptation of the HBO comedy series. Golden Globe winner Sarah Jessica Parker returns as everyone’s favorite columnist who, with her three BFFs (Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon), braves the roiling romantic waters of the city that never sleeps. [Maxim's Review] | DVD | DVD Special Edition | Blu-Ray
A must-see whodunit that’s praised as one of the best films of the 1990s. In 1950s Los Angeles, three wildly different cops (Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe and Kevin Spacey) form an uneasy alliance to ferret out deep-seated police corruption. Brian Helgeland’s script adaptation won an Oscar, as did Kim Basinger for her supporting role as a hooker who seduces haunted tough-guy Crowe. Blu-Ray
Leatherheads (2007) PG-13
Hard-nosed sports reporter Lexie Littleton (Oscar winner Renée Zellweger) finds herself at the center of an acute 1920s love triangle when an aging football hero (Oscar winner George Clooney) and a rising college star (John Krasinski of “The Office”) go head to head to compete for her affections. Clooney also writes and directs this romantic comedy with vintage flair, set at the dawn of professional football history.
