About the Movies

From Joel Silver and the Wachowski brothers, creators of "The Matrix" trilogy, comes the most action-packed, entertaining and talked-about thriller this year. "V for Vendetta" is the electrifying story of an everyday woman in futuristic Britain who becomes the unlikely accomplice of a mysterious freedom fighter in his radical effort to rid the country of oppression. "V for Vendetta" is an exhilarating and innovative film featuring provocative performances by Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving.

"Excalibur" - Raised by Merlin, young Arthur draws the mystical sword of Excalibur from the stone and becomes King. He grows to manhood and with his wife Guenevere and first knight Lancelot unites the country and founds the Knights of the Round Table. But the love between Lancelot and Guenevere, and the treachery of his sister Morgana and son Mordred cause King Arthur's pride to jeopardize the kingdom. An epic battle between the knights of good and evil decides the fate of Camelot. Directed with skill and panache from legendary director John Boorman ("Deliverance"), the visual splendor of "Excalibur" will only be heightened by the thrill of experiencing it in High Definition.

"Under Siege" - Steven Seagal comes aboard and comes on strong, in this box-office blockbuster, combining humor and heroics in a fireball of a movie. He's ex-Navy SEAL and highly decorated combat operative Casey Ryback. Relying on his slam-bang martial-arts skills and equipped with enough hardware to single-handedly wage World War III, Ryback turns the Missouri's deck and below deck areas into guerilla combat zones.
