Featured Subgenre

Sword and Sorcery

With the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons role-playing games in the '80s came a slew of films revolving around heroes with swords, saving damsels from dastardly dragons and evil wizards. While long a popular form for "B"-films, it wasn't until the sudden acceleration of special effects in the post-Star Wars world that the magic and monsters that make up the genre were rendered possible.

Comedy Thriller, Action Thriller - Rated PG13 - 125 Minutes - 1992

Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Dan Aykroyd, and Ben Kingsley headline a star-studded cast for this clever, suspenseful thriller that plays upon the dawn of the information age. Set in the San Francisco Bay Area, in the shadow of Silicon Valley, the film explores the infinite possibilities of computer advancements -- both positive and negative -- in a very sleek manner. The appropriately technocratic tone of the film rivals or surpasses later attempts at the same subject matter, such as The Net and Hackers. (Available on HBO Max)
