Scary Movie 3

You'll die to see these rings.

Genre: Fantasy / Comedy / Horror
Director: David Zucker
Distributor: Dimension Films
Cast: Anna Faris, Charlie Sheen, Anthony Anderson, Pamela Anderson, Peter Boyle (and more)
After discovering crop circles pointing towards a massive alien invasion, farmer Tom Logan (Charlie Sheen) must defend humanity from the approaching invaders, enlisting his wannabe rap star brother George (Simon Rex) for help. On the other side of town, newscaster Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris is struggling to find the source of a strange videotape that kills those who view it within 7 days, trying to save her friend Brenda (Regina Hall) and her nephew from certain doom. With the help of the president (Leslie Nielsen), hip-hop stars (including Redman, Macy Gray, and Master P), and an `Oracle' named Shaniqua (Queen Latifah), the group prepares for battle as the aliens touch down, and strange little girls start coming out of television sets. The two biggest targets this time around are `Signs' and `The Ring,' which provide the film's deepest laugh with an inventive spoof of the creepy videotape footage that is the cause of so much harm. `Signs' gets a workout with crop circle jokes, and a not-too-subtle jab at the invading aliens very first appearance on national television. Everything from "Lord of the Rings" to "8 Mile" is up for skewering.


His courage made them champions.

Genre: Drama
Director: Michael Tollin
Distributor: Columbia Pictures (Sony)

Cast: Cuba Gooding Jr., Ed Harris, S. Epatha Merkerson, Riley Smith, Debra Winger (and more)

This is the decade-long story of the relationship between a prominent high school football coach (Harris) in a small South Carolina town and the illiterate, mentally-challenged man nicknamed Radio (Gooding) whom he mentors, who before that had always been the target of jokes and teased by the community. Although their friendship raises eyebrows at first, Radio's growth under the coach's guidance ultimately inspires the local townsfolk, from 1964 when he first starts helping the Hanna Yellow Jackets football team, through a 38+ career with the school that continues today.
“If you see this movie, make sure you hang around for the end credits. You will be in for a treat as the real James Robert 'Radio' Kennedy, now in his mid 50's, is shown, still leading the T.L. Hanna Football team on to the field every Friday night.” - - IMDB
