Gentlemen welcome back to Film Club. We have eight humdingers to choose from.
Voting closes tomorrow (22nd September) at 5pm CST / 11pm UK. The results will be revealed the following day as soon I’ve crawled out of bed and had several cups of tea in a desperate attempt to come to terms with the fact aliens didn’t invade in the night and lay waste to the earth.
Your choices for this week are as follows:
When one of Europe’s most lethal terrorists shows up in New York, an elite undercover cop is assigned to take him down by any means necessary.
When a spacecraft crashes in Norway during the Iron Age, two figures emerge from the wreckage: Kainan (James Caviezel), an alien soldier, and the Moorwen, his mortal enemy. The latter immediately starts cutting a path of destruction through the Norse lands, while Kainan sees a chance to meld his advanced technology with ancient Viking weaponry to destroy the Moorwen before it destroys Earth.
Mathilda (Natalie Portman) is only 12 years old, but is already familiar with the dark side of life: her abusive father stores drugs for corrupt police officers, and her mother neglects her. Léon (Jean Reno), who lives down the hall, tends to his houseplants and works as a hired hitman for mobster Tony (Danny Aiello). When her family is murdered by crooked DEA agent Stansfield (Gary Oldman), Mathilda joins forces with a reluctant Léon to learn his deadly trade and avenge her family’s deaths.
Hard-boiled detective Dick Tracy (Warren Beatty) is searching for evidence that proves Alphonse “Big Boy” Caprice is the city’s most dangerous crime boss. He may have found the key to unraveling the crimelord’s illegal empire in Breathless Mahoney (Madonna), an enigmatic barroom singer who has witnessed some of Caprice’s crimes firsthand. However, she seems more set on stealing Dick away from his girlfriend, Tess (Glenne Headly), than helping him solve the case of his career.
Contestants in a cross-country car race from Connecticut to California include a speed-loving racing driver disguised as an ambulance driver and his dimwitted sidekick, a pair of Ferrari-driving priests, and a James Bond-type character kitted out with secret weapons. Jackie Chan appears in one of his first US film roles.
He may be blind, but Nick Parker (Rutger Hauer) has a way with a sword. The Vietnam vet pays a visit to an old war buddy, Frank Deveraux (Terrance O’Quinn), only to discover that his friend is in deep trouble. Gangsters have killed Frank’s wife (Meg Foster) and are holding him hostage in Reno, Nev. Making a narrow escape with Frank’s young son (Brandon Call), Nick heads across the country to even the score. Needless to say, his opponents underestimate him and his sword skills.
A string of mysterious deaths leads a teenager to become suspicious of a soldier (Dan Stevens) who showed up on her family’s doorstep and claimed to be a friend of her dead brother.
