You Don’t Mess With the Zohan
Comedy superstar Adam Sandler is back in the limelight as the perfectly-coiffed Zohan, an elite Israeli Mossad, who gives up counter-terrorism and the world of war to pursue his goal of making the world “silky smooth” starting with New York City. His plan goes awry as his Palestinian rival Phantom (John Tuturro) follows him to the Big Apple intent on foiling his every plan. And, what is a Sandler film without an alluring lady by his side? Enter Dalia, owner of Rafaela Salon and possibly Zohan’s heart. Will the quest for beauty triumph over violence? Follow the acrobatic hair-dryer toting Zohan and find out in this side-stitching comedy.

Take robots, an outer space adventure, add a heaping amount of animatic creativity and you have WALL-E, the story of the last working robot left on Earth.

WALL-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) is left on Earth picking up knick-knacks as the last man to leave the planet forgets to turn WALL-E’s systems off. After hundreds of lonely years, he meets EVE, a sleek modern-age robot sent to Earth for reconnaissance. After inadvertently discovering WALL-E has the key to Earth’s future, EVE races off to her human creators with WALL-E hot on the chase for the love of his life.

The creative geniuses behind Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille, assure audiences a freewheeling never-before-imagined vision of the future, a host of kooky characters, and loads of cosmic comedy headed straight for their movie screens.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The classic war between Good and Evil just upped the ante. The latest installment of the Star Wars Saga on the silverscreen showcases state-of-the-art computer generated (CG) animation technology giving the beloved galaxy far, far away an entirely invigorating out-of-this-world feel.

Light sabers glow with a fearsome menace as the Clone Wars rages between the Separatists and the Galactic Republic; Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, classic favorites sporting new CG-animated glory, go their separate ways to search for the kidnapped son of Jabba the Hutt and solve the mystery of this new renegade group. Meanwhile, the Sith continue to mix the malevolent brew instigating a three-way war between the Hutts, the Separatists and the Galactic Republic.

It is up to the Jedi Knights along with the wise guidance of Yoda and the willful spirit of Padmé Amidala to fight the evil plots of Palpatine, Count Dooku, and General Grievous. The fate of the Star Wars universe once again lies in their hands
