LAST ACTION HERO
1993, Sony Repertory, 130 min, USA, Dir: John McTiernan

In this wonderfully fun action romp from director John McTiernan (DIE HARD), young Danny (Austin O’Brien) receives a magic ticket to see the latest film starring his favorite action star Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger), which literally transports him into the movie’s explosive world alongside the larger-and-more-ripped-than-life screen icon. But Slater’s universe where good guys always win is turned upside down when his movie opponent, Benedict the Hitman (Charles Dance), steals Danny’s magic ticket and sneaks his way off the screen and into the real world to cause mayhem.


TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY
1991, Sony Repertory, 136 min, USA, Dir: James Cameron

Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger is an obsolete killer, sent back as guardian to Linda Hamilton and her teenage son (Edward Furlong). The effects are dazzling, but it’s Cameron’s uncanny blend of pop humor and visionary sci-fi that make TERMINATOR 2 the ultimate in Future Shock.
