ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, who continues to set blockbuster milestones -- from "The Terminator" and "Total Recall" to "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and "True Lies" -- returns to the screen in "Eraser," an electrifying action-thriller.  Schwarzenegger stars as the best of the elite federal marshals working for the Federal Witness Protection Program, one of the government's most clandestine agencies. When all hope is gone, he moves in and saves the lives of those at risk by eliminating all evidence of their existence. He will do anything to keep his witnesses safe. Operating in secrecy by necessity and anonymity by design, he is United States Marshal John Kruger. John Kruger is "Eraser." Now he faces his greatest challenge: Lee Cullen (VANESSA WILLIAMS) saw what she wasn't meant to see . . . and now some of the most powerful forces in the world want her dead. While working at one of the nation's leading defense contractors, she inadvertently uncovered a scheme to deliver one of the most advanced super-weapons ever developed -- the rail gun -- into hands that could shift the balance of power in the world forever. What she doesn't know is that the conspiracy reaches the highest levels of government and industry, and the players involved will stop at nothing to keep her from exposing the truth. To survive, she must sacrifice her life and her identity. To reveal her shattering secret, she needs a protector. She needs "Eraser."  For Marshal Kruger, the stakes are higher than they've ever been since the threat against this witness comes from somewhere within the government. Kruger is matched against an unknown challenger whose cunning skill equals his own as he guards Lee against the conspirators. As Kruger himself falls under suspicion as the traitor within the program, he sets out to prove his innocence to Robert Deguerin (JAMES CAAN), his mentor, and Beller (JAMES COBURN), the head of the Witness Protection Program.  Entangled in a web that grows more complicated and confrontations that grow more explosive, Kruger comes to encounter the devastating power of the rail gun itself, a weapon of awesome destruction and unstoppable force. With the rail gun in their hands, his enemies can see through walls and fire aluminum rounds at just under the speed of light . . . leaving Kruger and Lee nowhere to hide. 

Three-time loser, Jack Foley (George Clooney) is currently looking at 30-odd years of jail time in a Florida's medium security facility. Only he has no intention of doing that time. He is determined to get out and stay out--and has planned a last big score for his retirement.  Deputy Federal Marshal Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez) grew up in law enforcement. Stopping at Glades Correctional to serve a Summons and Complaint, she stumbles into Jack's breakout and is taken hostage.  Packed closely together in the trunk of a car racing towards the highway and freedom, Karen and Jack come to know quite a bit about each other in a short dark time. She discovers that the bank robber is not only a perfect gentleman, but he also shares her love for movies. She's even amused that he seems to be trying to make a good impression. A by-the-books Federal Marshall, she is determined to recapture him but finds herself wrestling with a personal dilemma, how can she sleep with the man she is supposed to arrest. 

Gomez is unhappy, as the 25th anniversary of his brother Fester's disappearance is approaching. Meanwhile, the Family lawyer, flat-broke Tully Alford, arrives, with his wife, Margaret. He owes money to Mrs. Craven, who has her thuggish son, Gordon. Tully notices that Gordon looks a lot like Fester, and a plan evolves for the three of them to get their hands on the  Family's money. When the annual seance is held by the Addams Family, Fester arrives at the door, accompanied by Mrs. Craven, posing as Dr. Pinderschloss, a psychiatrist. She claims that Fester was fished out of the ocean alter being stranded with amnesia in the Bermuda Triangle. Wednesday is very suspicious of this story, but Gomez accepts the newcomer. Gomez shows Fester the vault, below the house and down an underground river. The combination is '2-10-11: eyes, fingers, toes'. Gomez admits his own jealousy drove Fester away and asks for forgiveness. Fester agrees, but he's forgetting too much, and Gomez is growing suspicious of him.  'Dr. Pinderschhiss' cures Gomez's suspicions, and Fester starts to settle in. Tully gets an idea and has the local judge (who loathes the Family) issue an order declaring that the Family treasures and property belong to the older brother, Fester. The Family is thrown out.  They have to take a room at a motel. Morticia returns to the  mansion to try and talk sense to Fester. She's captured and tortured. Just as she' s enjoying herself, Thing returns with Gomez to the rescue. Gordon, finally, has become fed up with his mother and Tully and switches sides to help the Addams'. He causes a hurricane that sends Tully and Mrs Craven spinning into graves.  Gordon is hit by a lightning bolt which restores his memory. He really is  Fester, and was lost in the Bermuda Triangle. The Family is together again. 

Robert (Ewan McGregor) is one of life's losers. He works as a janitor in a giant corporation, but dreams of something... less ordinary, while he writes what he hopes will be the great American trash novel.  Sharp-tongued Celine (Cameron Diaz) on the other hand, has never wanted for anything in her short and pampered life as the daughter of Robert's boss, Naville (Ian Holm). The
grossest indignity she can imagine is having her credit card rejected. But like Robert she's bored. In a normal life these two souls would never even meet - but who said this story was normal? In heaven two celestial cops (Holly Hunter and Delroy Lindo) are given the toughest assignment of their career by Gabriel: to make Celine and Robert fall in love.  When two such different lives
collide, sparks fly. He kidnaps her - or is it the other way round? Kidnap leads to collaboration - of the bank robbing type. Collaboration leads to something more... or at least that's the plan. But it doesn't appear to be working: rather than falling in love Robert and Celine are bickering, rather than coming together they seem to be falling apart. What's gone wrong?  Is the human heart too complex an organ to fit in with something as mundane as a plan? Or is that resilient little muscle
merely in training for something big?

Frank Drebin is back in all his comic glory in this gagfest about a plot to sabotage any and all
anti-pollution measures. The laughs (and groans) are nonstop, and nobody really gets hurt. 

What if visitors from another world suddenly appeared? What if tomorrow morning, you walked out of your door and saw an enormous spaceship hovering over your entire city? And what if you learned that the same thing was happening across our planet?  These kinds of questions have sparked innumerable discussions, theories and debates across the planet. Now, we're about to get the answers.  It is an ordinary summer day -- But then, without warning, something very extraordinary happens.  Enormous shadows fall across the land. Strange atmospheric phenomena, ominous and mesmerizing, surface around the globe. All eyes turn upward. The question of whether we're alone in the universe has finally been answered. And, in a matter of minutes, the lives of every person across the globe are forever changed,  With the fate of our planet at stake, the Fourth of July is about to take on an entirely new meaning. No longer will it be an American holiday. it will be known as the day the entire world fought back. The day we did not go gentle into the good night ...  The day all of us on planet Earth celebrated our INDEPENDENCE DAY.

The trilogy starts off with highschool student Michael J. Fox who ruins Christopher Lloyd's guitar amplifier. Fox, who seems to suffer from his image of being the eternal youth, and Lloyd seem to have some sort of a vague relationship. This relationship must be based on nothing, since crazy, wild-eyed Lloyd and naive Fox obviously have absolutely nothing in common. Also strangely, Lloyd had been busy making a time-machine out of a DeLorean for thirty years. And Fox never knew a thing!  Fox is accidentally transported into the year in which his parents were supposed to meet, but his presence messes up the whole thing. Then his own Mom, Lea Thompson, falls in love with Fox instead of falling in love with Fox' "to-be" Dad. This, as you can imagine, causes some kind of a problem, because if the parents never got to get married, Fox would have never been born. Within the 104 minutes of this film, Fox manages to save his parent's marriage, to come home, own a new car and impress his girlfriend, all by just pressing a button. How does he do that? 

Beverly Hills High... the place where some of the richest kids in the world spend most of their teen-age lives socializing and trying to get love mates like any other teenager would do, only with a BMW to get themselves there. Alicia Silverstone stars as Cher, a ditzy 15-year old attending this high school who spends most of her time at the mall or at her computer figuring out what she's going to wear to the next party. The basic plot of the movie is that everyone is trying to get themselves a boyfriend. Some get help from others, while some try it on their own.  Although its always nice to see Alicia Silverstone (who would deny she is gorgeous), she is truly annoying in this film along with most of her friends. The humor in the movie is usually a display of the stupidity of the students. There is just nothing special about this movie. It got very boring by the end with Alicia finally acquiring a boyfriend in the end.
