Bombastic superhero escapism with The God of Thunder banished to earth where his skills with a hammer soon come in handy. This burly addition to Marvel's cinematic universe benefits hugely from the good-humored direction of Branagh. Watch for a cameo from comic icon Stan Lee.

Ray Winstone is lured to New Zealand in this turn-of-the-century chase movie, in which the hulking Brit plays a master South African tracker pursuing the bounty on a 'savage' (Morrison) wrongly accused of murder. This 'Maori Fugitive', of sorts, runs well within the sidelines of the action-adventure…

A ninja assassin (Jang Dong-Gun) on the run from his former clan is forced to hide in the American Badlands after refusing a mission to kill a baby. Shot in New Zealand, this flamboyant green-screen mash-up of western mythology and samurai folklore is goofy as hell, but also damn good fun as a…

Sleek thriller with Liam Neeson awakening from a coma with his identity seemingly erased.

Entertaining cannon fodder, this is yet another comic book adaptation of assassins on the lam, but one distinguished by its dynamite cast and palpable sense of fun. An athletic Helen Mirren leads an outfit of former government hitmen who’ve had their crosshairs turned back on them.

Hyper-violent 'Mexploitation' actioner from director Robert Rodriguez that fleshes out his popular mock-trailer from he and Tarantino's "Grindhouse" double-bill to a full length feature. Like the director's PLANET TERROR, this pays homage to fleapit B-movie mayhem, this time with bad-ass Danny Trejo as an…

Competent, briskly executed heist drama from actor/dir. Ben Affleck follows an armed robbery crew out of Boston’s Charlestown neighborhood, and the witness who unwittingly enters into a romance with the gang’s conflicted leader. Robust performances (especially from Jeremy Renner as a ‘loose cannon’) and…

Comedy Rental DVD & VHS

Literate and defiantly non-conformist, this snob comedy about an eccentric failure in the arts and his rickshaw driver-cum-biographer succeeds in nailing the idiosyncrasy of its world, with spurts of inspired absurdism. A pair of Russian refugees settle in Auckland to make art and a new home in this eccentric yet accessible 'art comedy' from screenwriter and playwright-turned-director Stephen Sinclair.

Paul Giamatti fans will find much to enjoy in this bittersweet character piece in which he plays a jaded TV producer who reflects on his varied successes and failures, and the three key women in his life through the decades. Another small scale triumph from dir. Kelly Reichardt, here miniaturizing the experience of early American settlers making the treacherous journey along the Oregon Trail under the guidance of a suspect mountain scout.
