More Everyone knows that John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln but not many people know about the other co-conspirators involved. The Conspirator covers in detail the fascinating trial of the only female charged in the President’s murder. By the end of the movie you will wonder, did the murder of one of our most popular presidents overshadow the railroading of an innocent woman or was justice served?

More Academy Award winner Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu directs this tragically beautiful tale about life, death & fatherhood. Uxbal (Academy Award winner Javier Bardem) is a single father of two living in the slums of modern day Barcelona. He does whatever he has to do to survive, always putting the health and happiness of his children first. However, tragedy strikes and Uxbal is forced to face his own mortality. The film is entirely in Spanish, yet the beauty of this film, especially Bardem’s performance, transcends language and appeals to fans worldwide. Simply put, Biutiful is a beautiful piece of filmmaking not to be missed!

More When his sister is kidnapped, Avery Chasten (Henry Thomas, E.T.) and his group of friends, Max (Sean Patrick Flanery, Boondock Saints), Brett (Jay Mohr, Jerry Maguire), and T.K. (Jeremy Sisto, Clueless), conspire to abduct ex-gangster, Carlo Bartolucci (Christopher Walken, SNL’s cowbell sketch) with the hopes that his contacts and influence will help get her back. The movie tries to be a little too ambitious and has more twists & turns than Lombard Street, but the cast is delightfully charming and there are some truly laugh out loud moments in this dark comedy.

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

More Part James Bond, part Indiana Jones Remo Williams blasted onto the movie screen in the mid 80’s to mixed reviews but for me remains a cool classic. Fred Ward (TREMORS), who always struck me as a latter day Charles Bronson with a sense of humor, is in the title role as a tough New York cop who is gunned down only to wake up with a new face and identity. He is trained as an assassin by a martial arts master played by Joel Grey (CABARET) who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the role, but before the training is complete Remo is thrust out on a dangerous mission he’s not quite ready for. There are a lot of laughs and thrills with action sequences taking place in iconic NY locales such as the Coney Island Ferris wheel and the Statue of Liberty. It’s a shame the film came up short at the box office or we might have seen a few sequels and franchise that could’ve really expanded on the characters.

More Michael Bay takes a break from his billion dollar blockbusters to direct what's sure to be one of the most bizarre true stories to hit the silver screen, Pain & Gain. Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star alongside an all star cast of costars including Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub and newcomer Bar Paly. Part action, part comedy, part crime thriller, Pain & Gain will kidnap you and take you on a wild ride. But I promise it'll all be worth it in the end, because remember: no pain, no gain.

More Get into the election spirit way way early with this romantic comedy! John Logue (Breckin Meyer) is on the campaign trail in 2004 volunteering for John Kerry. He has such faith in the then Massachusetts Senator that Logue vows to move to Canada if George Dubya wins again (seriously who really thought that would happen?!) He’s not alone for the trip though – Chloe (Anna Paquin) also has her own secret reasons for wanting to become an expatriate. The film balances humor and political commentary and is a throwback to the issues America was struggling with in 2014. Can Chloe escape her messy past? Can John really start a new life and leave America behind? Watch this movie to find out!

More Step outside yourself and into the mind of Russell Brand. It is a wild and crazy but undeniably brilliant time. Leave your reservations at the door because nothing here is off limits. Russell explores his own inner self through the valuation and assessment of a few highly revered public figures, Jesus, Che Guevara, Gandhi, and Malcolm X, all while bringing you to stitches. Russell is a unmatched purveyor of physical, insightful, adult comedy who presents of show full of intelligent and raunchy humor. This is certainly an Epix original comedy special that should not be missed!
