- Forrest Gump
Available until 31 Jan 2018
Robert Zemeckis' whimsical, sextuple Oscar-winning fable stars Tom Hanks as an idiot-savant who leads a charmed existence over four turbulent decades of US history. A fable for modern times, the offbeat tale captures both the imagination and the eye, thanks in no small part to a supporting cast that includes Gary Sinise as Forrest's grumpy Vietnam leader (and Reddit favourite), Lt. Dan and Robin Wright Penn as his troubled sweetheart. Light, dark, bitter and sweet... it's not unlike a box of chocolates.

Riveting true account of the disastrous expedition up Mount Everest in 1996, based on the book by journalist Jon Krakauer. Jason Clarke plays expedition leader Rob Hall, who has the job of leading a group of high altitude enthusiasts - including Josh Brolin's gung-ho Texan and John Hawkes' blue collar adventurer - up the world's highest peak. However, poor weather and bad judgement result in catastrophe after the climbers reach the summit. Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley are among the stars forced to brave the emotional and physical ordeal.

Kirk Douglas is the legendary Thracian fighter who led his fellow slaves in a revolution against the mighty Roman Empire in Stanley Kubrick's battle-strewn spectacular. In support, Tony Curtis is heroic as Spartacus' blood brother, Jean Simmons is a shimmering vision, and Laurence Olivier, Charles Laughton and the Oscar-winning Peter Ustinov make splendidly oily Roman oppressors. Rousing, stunningly shot, and an inspiration to every Roman odyssey made since, from Ridley Scott's Gladiator to Monty Python's Life Of Brian.

Available until 31 Dec 2018
Sean Connery plays a Russian submarine skipper planning to defect (or is he? ) with a hold full of nuclear weapons aboard. The Russkies let the Americans think Connery is a madman about to blow the US apart so both sides could be seeking to eliminate him - until wily CIA analyst Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) sees through it all. Gripping Cold War suspense thriller, based on Tom Clancy's bestseller. Trivia: a crewman died during filming when a navy submarine snagged a tow cable, sinking a tugboat 10 miles off Long Beach, California.

Available until 18 Dec 2017
Houston, we have a problem... Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon and Bill Paxton play the beleaguered, real-life astronauts of what turned out to be NASA's most nail-biting mission when their spacecraft develops a crippling fault. Director Ron Howard cranks up the suspense while Ed Harris plays Gene Krantz, the ground controller who tries to guide them home. Based on the book by Hanks' character Jim Lovell, this technical wonder won Oscars for editing and sound.
