      Police Story 1 & 2

      Starring and directed by Jackie Chan.

      Police Story 1

      The
      Royal Hong Kong Police Force
      is planning a major undercover sting called "Operation Boar Hunt" to arrest crime lord Chu Tao (
      Chor Yuen
      ). Inspector Chan Ka-Kui (or Kevin Chan in some versions) is part of the operation, along with undercover officers stationed in a shanty town. After arresting Chu, Chan's next assignment is to protect Chu Tao's secretary, Selina Fong (
      Brigitte Lin
      ), who plans to testify in court about Chu Tao's illegal activities. The trial fails due to Selina's tampering with evidence. Though Chu Tao is released on bail, he wants revenge against Ka-Kui, framing him for the murder of fellow policeman Inspector Man. Meanwhile, Selina, realizing Chu's criminality, goes to his office at a shopping mall to download incriminating data from Chu Tao's computer system. Chu Tao and Chan notice this and head to the mall. In the ensuing fight, Ka-Kui defeats all of Chu Tao's henchmen while the police apprehend Chu and the briefcase.

      Police Story 2

      The story picks up with Chan Ka-Kui being demoted to a traffic cop for causing so much damage in his apprehension of Chu. Chu has been released from prison on the pretense that he is terminally ill, and Chu and his clan continue to harass Chan and his girlfriend May as Chan gets reinstated to the detective unit when criminal bombers begin extorting money from businessmen.

        Hi All,
        Star Trek II Wrath Of Khan 1982 (Via Sky Cinema) Still watchable whenever viewed....

        Starring:- William Shatner,Leonard Nimoy,DeForest Kelley,James Doohan,Walter Koenig,George Takei,Nichelle Nichols,Bibi Besch
        Paul Winfield,Kirstie Alley,Ricardo Montalbn,Paul Winfield,Ike Eisenmann,Bibi Besch,Merritt Butrick,John Winston and Judson Scott.

        As Adm. James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and Capt. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) monitor trainees at Starfleet Academy, another vessel from the United Federation of Planets is about to try out the planet-creating Genesis Device in a seemingly deserted portion of space. In the process, two of Kirk's officers are captured by Khan (Ricardo Montalban), an enemy Kirk thought he'd never see again. Once more, Kirk takes the Enterprise's helm, where he meets Khan's ship in an intergalactic showdown.

          Hi All,
          Double X 1992 (Via Talking Pictures channel/Sky 328). Thought this may be good being as it had Bernard Hill,Norman Wisdom and Simon Ward who are all decent actors, sadly this looks like a money for old rope film as it was full of clich's yet Norman Wisdom is by far the best character actor in this watch and forget film.....

          Starring:- Norman Wisdom,William Katt,Bernard Hill,Gemma Craven,Simon Ward and Chlo Annett.

          A Chicago policeman (William Katt) on vacation in Scotland meets a man (Norman Wisdom) whose daughter has been kidnapped by mobsters.

            Hi All,
            Star Trek III (The Search For Spok) Still on my ST binge and the film is just as good to watch although I would say that it's mainly for the ST/Sci-Fi fan as either should just enjoy the film...

            Starring:- Leonard Nimoy,DeForest Kelley,James Doohan,George Takei,Walter Koenig,Nichelle Nichols,Merritt Butrick,Christopher Lloyd,Carl Steven,Vadia Potenza,
            Stephen Manley,Joe W. Davis,William Shatner,Dame Judith Anderson,Robin Curtis,Mark Lenard,Robert Hooks,James Sikking,Miguel Ferrer,Catherine Shirriff,
            Grace Lee Whitney and Scott McGinnis.

            Adm. James T. Kirk (William Shatner) has defeated his archenemy but at great cost. His friend Spock has apparently been killed, the USS Enterprise is being scrapped, and starship physician Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley) has taken ill. McCoy's odd behavior is evidence he's harboring Spock's katra, or animating spirit, and Kirk seeks to take the Enterprise back to the Genesis Planet and find his friend. Rebuffed, Kirk takes dramatic action that results in war with deadly Klingons.

              Hi All,
              Blood On The Sun 1945 (Via Talking Pictures Channel on Sky328) Classic James Cagney in this Oscar winning fictional history Drama/Thriller/Romance film, if you like classic B/W films you'll not be disappointed with this at all even being 73years old....

              Starring:- James Cagney,Sylvia Sidney,Porter Hall,John Emery,Robert Armstrong,Wallace Ford,Rosemary DeCamp,John Halloran,Leonard Strong,James Bell,Marvin Miller,
              Rhys Williams,Frank Puglia and, Hugh Beaumont

              Reporter Nick Condon (James Cagney) works for a newspaper in Tokyo and publishes a story exposing the Japanese government's imperialist plans. When government officers seize the newspaper, Nick finds himself at the center of a cover-up led by ruthless Premier Giichi Tanaka (John Emery). Harried by agents Colonel Hideki Tojo (Robert Armstrong) and Captain Oshima (John Halloran), Nick goes on the lam, meets a mysterious woman and has a dramatic confrontation on his way to the American Embassy.

                Hi All,
                Star Trek IV The Voyage Home 1987 (Via Sky Cinema) Probably the weakest of the OC Franchise films but does contain some funny moments still watchable though if your a Sci-Fi/Trek fan...

                Starring:-William Shatner,Leaonard Nimoy,Deforest Kelley,James Doohan,George Takei,Walter Koenig,Nichelle Nichols Catherine Hicks,Majel Barret,Mark Lenard,
                Jane Wyatt,Robin Curtis,Alex Henteloff,Madge Sinclair,Jane Wiedin,Vijay Amritraj,John Shcuck,Robert Ellenstein,Michael Berryman,Brock Peters and Grace Lee Whitney.

                Living in exile on the planet Vulcan, the ragtag former crew of the USS Enterprise steal a starship after receiving a planetary distress call from Earth: a space probe has entered into orbit around Earth, disabled global power on the planet and evaporated the oceans. Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the rest of the officers travel back in time to retrieve now-extinct humpback whales, which Spock has deduced will communicate with the probe and send it away from Earth.

                  Hi All,
                  Straw Dogs 1971 (Via Talking Pictures channel Sky328). Although slow for the main part it builds up to a good climax at the end, many early roles for recognisables from
                  Tv and Cinema, (WARNING THIS FILM DOES CONTAIN A RAPE SCENE!)

                  Starring:-
                  Dustin Hoffman,Susan George,Peter Vaughan,T. P. McKenna,Del Henney,Jim Norton,Donald Webster,Ken Hutchison,Len Jones,Sally Thomsett,Robert Keegan,
                  Peter Arne,Colin Welland,Cherina Schaer,David Warner and Michael Mundell.


                  David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman), a mild-mannered academic from the United States, marries Amy (Susan George), an Englishwoman. In order to escape a hectic stateside lifestyle, David and his wife relocate to the small town in rural Cornwall where Amy was raised. There, David is ostracized by the brutish men of the village, including Amy's old flame, Charlie (Del Henney). Eventually the taunts escalate, and two of the locals rape Amy. This sexual assault awakes a shockingly violent side of David.

                    When Lily (Billie Whitelaw), a maid at Dame Beatrice's (Athene Seyler) boarding house, steals a mink coat to give to Beatrice, the other residents of the house organize to return the coat and save Lily from arrest.
