Role: 

Tai Chi Zero

Everyone is a martial arts master, and use a powerful form of Tai Chi in all aspects of their life. Yang has arrived to learn it, only to find that it's forbidden for the villagers to teach their secret style to an outsider. When a mysterious man arrives with a frightening steam-powered machine the villagers realize they may have no choice but to put their faith in Yang, who has a secret power of his own.

Tai Chi Hero

Lun Chan (Jayden Yuan) is on the verge of acceptance in Chen Village, but the cozy hamlet still stands in the shadow of danger. A prodigal brother returns, Lu Chan brings a curse on the town, and Yuniang's scorned fiance has an appetite for revenge, as well as some new partners in crime. The second in a trilogy from the creators if IP Man and Detective Dee, and action directed by the legendary Sammo Hung, Tai Chi Hero is a steampunk-infused kung fu throwdown that will knock you out of your seat.

The Big Lebowski

After the tight plotting and quirky intensity of Fargo, this casually amusing follow-up from the prolifically inventive Coen (Ethan and Joel) brothers seems like a bit of a lark, and the result was a box-office disappointment. The good news is, The Big Lebowski is every bit a Coen movie, and its lazy plot is part of its laidback charm. After all, how many movies can claim as their hero a pot-bellied, pot-smoking loser named Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) who spends most of his time bowling and getting stoned?

Minority Report

Set in the chillingly possible future of 2054, Steven Spielberg's Minority Report is arguably the most intelligently provocative sci-fi thriller since Blade Runner. Like Ridley Scott's "future noir" classic, Spielberg's gritty vision was freely adapted from a story by Philip K. Dick, with its central premise of "Precrime" law enforcement, totally reliant on three isolated human "precogs" capable (due to drug-related mutation) of envisioning murders before they're committed.

The Lost World

The disaster that occurred at Jurassic Park is over. It's been four years since the genetically bred dinosaurs terrorized the scientists and visitors who had come to marvel at their existence. But Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) has just learned some very disturbing news: John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), the billionaire entrepreneur who funded the original Park, has been breeding more dinosaurs at a second, secret location. What's even more shocking to Dr.

Chocolat

With movies like Chocolat, it's always best to relax your intellectual faculties and absorb the abundant sensual pleasures, be it the heart-stopping smile of chocolatier Juliette Binoche as she greets a new customer, an intoxicating cup of spiced hot cocoa, or the soothing guitar of an Irish gypsy played by Johnny Depp.
