Archeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones is hired by the US government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. I guess most of you have seen this movie, and if not, shame on you! This is my favorite Indian Jones movie, you should give it a try, it’s really good. Directed by Steven Spielberg, written by George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan, starring Harrison Ford, Karen Allen and Paul Freeman.

Steven Spielbergs “The Terminal” is refreshing new, simple and funny. The script is great and Tom Hanks with his Bulgarian accent is brilliant. I would also like to mention Stanley Tucci, Catherine Zeta Jones and Zoe Saldana, who give a really good performance, too.
Viktor Navorski, a man from an Eastern European country arrives in New York. However after he left his country war broke out. Suddenly Navorski is a man without a country - or one that the U.S. cannot recognize, thus he is denied entrance to the U.S. However, he also can’t be deported so he is told by the Security Manager that he has to remain in the airport until his status can be fixed. And also Navorski doesn’t speak English very well, so he cannot talk to or understand anyone. But he somehow adapts and sets up residence in the airport, which makes the man who placed him there unhappy, as it seems he is in line for a promotion but Navroski’s presence might complicate that. So he tries to get Navorski to leave but Navorski remains where he is. Navorski makes friends with some of the people who work in the airport and is attracted to a flight attendant he runs into whenever she comes in.
Steven Spielbergs film was groundbreaking for its genre and it really scared me! The acting is good, the writing wasn’t spectacular but the music made it up again.

Martin Brody is the new police chief of Amity, an island resort town somewhere in New England. He has a wife named Ellen, and two sons named Michael and Sean. On a Summer morning, Brody is called to the beach, where the mangled body of Summer vacationer Chrissie Watkins has washed ashore. The medical examiner tells Brody that it could have been a shark that killed Watkins. Mayor Larry Vaughn, who is desperate to not lose the money that will be brought in by 4th of July tourists, wants Brody to say Watkins’s death was caused by a motorboat propeller instead of a shark, because the thought of a shark in Amity’s waters would drive tourists away from Amity. It looks like Vaughn is a mayor who puts money ahead of people’s lives. Shark expert Matt Hooper believes Watkins was killed by a shark. Hooper is proven right a few days later, when Alex Kintner is killed by the shark that killed Watkins…

Based on the true story of Oskar Schindler who managed to save about 1100 Jews from being gassed at the Auschwitz concentration camp. A testament for the good in all of us.
