Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues [M]

Long rumoured and highly anticipated, Ron Burgundy took almost a decade to come back to the screen for a second outing, and the result is wonderfully hilarious. With the 70s behind him, San Diego's top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, hits New York's first 24-hour news channel by storm. The genius of the series lies in the strange situating of a news team being some sort of mythical pop culture TV icon, more Elvis Presley than Walter Cronkite.

Blue Is The Warmest Color

Blue Is The Warmest Color [R18+]

Raw, honest, powerfully acted, and deliciously intense, Blue Is the Warmest Color offers some of modern cinema's most elegantly composed, emotionally absorbing drama.

300: Rise Of An Empire

300: Rise Of An Empire [MA15+]

Zack Snyder's take on Frank Miller's 300 in 2007 was arguably one of the most effective visual interpretations of a graphic novel, acting like a richly detailed motion comic. The follow up is based on Miller's book Xerxes and told in similar fashion (expect lots of slow motion). The next chapter of the saga takes the action to the sea-as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.

Bonnie And Clyde

Bonnie And Clyde [M]

Beatty and Dunaway play an unlikely bank robbing team in the 1930's.

Dallas Buyers Club

Dallas Buyers Club [[CTC]]

Dallas Buyers Club rests squarely on Matthew McConaughey's scrawny shoulders, and he carries the burden gracefully with what might be a career-best performance.

East of Eden

East of Eden [PG]

Adaptation of John Steinbeck's novel. In the Salinas Valley, in and around World War I, Cal Trask feels he must compete against overwhelming odds with his brother Aron for the love of their father Adam. Cal is frustrated at every turn, from his reaction to the war, to how to get ahead in business and in life, to how to relate to estranged mother.

The Dark Crystal

The Dark Crystal [G]

The most requested classic at The Astor, unseen inĀ theatricalĀ format for many years. A thousand years ago, a magical crystal cracked resulting in the birth of two new races: the evil reptilian Skeksis, and hunchback wizards known as the Mystics. Jen is a young gelfling (elf-like child) who, armed with the shard of the 'Dark Crystal', must journey to a foreign land to do the bidding of the Mystics.

Dazed And Confused

Dazed And Confused [M]

Before he became well known as the guy who brought Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy together onscreen (Before Sunrise), he was the cinematic spokesperson for Generation X. Considered by many the best 1990s stoner flick, it is also regarded as a great commentary on American high-school social politics. This film gave rise to a lot of great acting careers as well as providing endless laughs and a seriously mellow, good time.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel [M]

The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.

The Fast And The Furious

The Fast And The Furious [M]

The film makers reinvent this franchise as it goes on. In the first installment, Paul Walker is an FBI agent who goes undercover to thwart high speed thief Vin Diesel from getting his hands on a massive electronics haul. The seeds for the franchise were planted here via excellent location photography, trademark stunts and souped up cars, plus a more glossy edge before the series took a grittier heist direction in later installments.
