In Pursuit of Honor

Review In Pursuit of Honor (DVD)

In a desperate race against time, five cavalry officers fight for honor and risk heir lives to save four hundred horses destined for destruction. As the earth pounding power of new tank forces takes over the army, the men and horses of the US cavalry have become an expensive inconvenience. Colonel Stuart's (Rod Steiger) replacement has been ordered to execute the five hundred horses under his command. Lt. Marshall Buxton (Craig Shegger) and Sgt. John Libby (Don Johnson) are ordered to escort them to slaughter, but rebel in horror after witnessing the massacre of the first hundred. Buxton, Libby and their men escape with the surviving four hundred, facing at best court martial, at worst, death at the hand of their fellow officers. Colonel Stuart's daughter (Gabrielle Anwar) is a young journalist, determined to tell the story to the world, but time is running out. In their flight across the country, the horses are beginning to drop from exhaustion and the Army is gaining on them. As Buxton and Libby face a final assault at the Canadian border, they must, in the end, be prepared to die for what they believe.

Rough Riders

Review In their first feature film together, Hollywood screen favorites Melanie Griffith (TWO MUCH, A STRANGER AMONG US) and Don Johnson (GUILTY AS SIN, BORN YESTERDAY) combine their impressive talents in the critically acclaimed must-see hit PARADISE! This extraordinary film is the touching story of the lost love between a young married couple and how a visiting youngster (Elijah Wood -- THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) rekindles that love one memorable summer. Funny, poignant, and uplifting, PARADISE is a motion picture so full of natural beauty and heartfelt emotion, you'll remember it for a long, long time!

The Lost Battalion

Review Don Johnson ("Nash Bridges"), Virginia Madsen (The Haunting) and Jennifer Connelly (Dark City) heat up the screen in this torrid erotic thriller from the acclaimed director of Easy Rider. Exploding in a series of suspenseful twists and passionate encounters, this "ingenious" (Los Angeles Daily News) film will keep you guessing until its final, shocking climax! Harry Madox (Johnson) is a handsome drifter who is not above larceny to make ends meet. After staging a daring daylight robbery at a local bank, he receives an alibi from an unexpected ally: Dolly Harshaw (Madsen), a sexy and mysterious local woman who has her own plans for him. But when Harry falls for another beautiful woman (Connelly), he incurs Dolly's wrath and finds himself caught in a maze of jealousy, betrayal and murder from which escape is impossible and danger is the ultimate aphrodisiac.
Last of the Dogmen

Review The Hot Spot is best known to lecherous film buffs for Jennifer Connelly's topless scene, but this sultry southern noir deserves more than prurient interest. It's arguably Dennis Hopper's best directorial effort (OK, so that's not saying much), and Charles Williams's source novel Hell Hath No Fury finds Hopper in a comfortable B-movie milieu, riffing on Double Indemnity with an overripe tale of sex, greed, and blackmail in an unnamed Texan town. Fresh from the final season of Miami Vice, Don Johnson stars as a shifty drifter, conning his way into a salesman job on a used-car lot, where the boss's insatiable wife (Virginia Madsen) offers him sexual favors and a lovely secretary's (Connelly) innocence is threatened by a percolating scandal. Nobody's really innocent, of course, and Hopper spices this languid web of secrets with enough trashy misbehavior to qualify The Hot Spot as a bona fide guilty pleasure. --Jeff Shannon
I Will Fight No More Forever

Review Rebecca De Mornay (THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE) and Don Johnson (PARADISE) scorch the screen in this spine-tingling, seductively sexy thriller. De Mornay stars as a sexy, hothot criminal defense attorney who plays to win -- and usually does. She meets her match when she represents a playboy (Don Johnson) accused of murdering his rich wife. The attractive lawyer, captured by her client's irresistible charm, finds herself caught in his seductive, psychological web of deceit from which there is no legal escape -- and soon fears she may be his next victim. From its first startling plot twist, GUILTY AS SIN is a riveting edge-of-your-seat suspense thriller leading to a sensational climax. Don't miss it!
