Cobra (1986)
Lt. Cobretti (Sylvester Stallone) is a one-man assault team whose laser-mount submachine gun and pearl-handled Colt .45 spit pure crime-stopping venom! Director George P. Cosmatos teams up again with Stallone for this thriller, pitting Cobretti against a merciless serial killer. The trail leads to not one murderer but also an army of psychos bent on slashing their way to a "New Order", and killing a witness (Brigitte Nielsen) along the way. Fortunately, her protector is Cobra, a man who delivers vigilante justice like no other!

Assassins (1995)
Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas star as professional killers, for whom life is survival of the ruthless. And the only retirement is in a body bag. Robert Rath (Stallone) is the best in the business, but he wants out. New competition Miguel Bain (Banderas) aims to do the one thing that will clinch the job: murder Rath. And Rath must dodge an assassin's bullets while hunting his current target, a beautiful electronic surveillance expert (Julianne Moore), who may be his most dangerous assignment ever. Now, for Rath to stop killing--and live--he must do the one thing his instinct and training scream not to do--trust the enemy.

Tango and Cash (1989)
Ray Tango And Gabe Cash (Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell) are rival policemen with one thing in common: each thinks he is the best. Team them up and they're like oil and water. But frame them for a crime and they're like a match and kerosene. After being found guilty in court and sentenced to do time, the two stage a prison breakout that's a breathless rush of weapons and wisecracks - then roar after the shadowy crimelord who set them up. Tango & Cash are out to clear their names. Join them and feel the rush.

The Specialist (1994)
Sharon Stone is May Munro, a beauty with a fatal past. She's sworn death to the mobsters who murdered her parents. To do the job, she recruits ex-CIA explosives expert Ray Quick (Sylvester Stallone). Miami grows white-hot as May lures the killers and Ray detonates them into ashes. But a vicious mob boss (Rod Steiger), his brash son (Eric Roberts) and a psychotic hired gun (James Woods) with a lethal grudge against Quick won't go without a fight. The passion the two avengers share can't hide Ray's ominous question. Is May falling for him... or setting him up, too?

Demolition Man (1993)
The future isn't big enough for the both of them--the 21st century's most dangerous cop and the 21st century's most ruthless criminal. John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) is a no-holds-barred 20th century cop who had been sentenced to cryoprison, a cop known in an earlier century as the Demolition Man. But when psychopathic killer Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) escapes cryoprison during a mandatory parole hearing, only officer Lenina Huxley (Sandra Bullock) has a plan to stop a criminal rampage from causing havoc in her now-peaceful world: free the one man capable of stopping Phoenix - the Demolition Man himself. Now, two men from another time bring a level of nonstop action long unseen in this future, idyllic world.

The community of Barchester is shaken from its cosy complacency when a newspaper's crusade against the Church of England's practice of self-enrichment misfires.

Overnight, Rev. Harding becomes a pawn in a battle between his younger daughter's beau, John Bold, and his older daughter's husband, Archdeacon Grantly. Little do they realise that the worst is yet to come, until a regime change delivers Barchester into the hands of a most unholy trinity: the weak-willed Bishop Proudie, the domineering Mrs. Proudie, and the insufferable Rev. Obadiah Slope.

A dream cast brings Anthony Trollope's Barchester novels charmingly to life in this engaging production from the golden age of masterpiece theatre. Featuring Alan Rickman in his breakthrough role as the odious Obadiah Slope.

Oliver Dimsdale stars in 'He Knew He Was Right' (2004) as Louis Trevelyan, who is unable to believe that his wife Emily (Laura Fraser) is faithful to him, and begins a sequence of events that destroy his marriage and drive him completely mad.

'The Barchester Chronicles' (1982) is a seven-part adaptation of Trollope's two novels set in the fictitious Victorian town of Barchester. Reverend Septimus Harding commands the respect of his parish, and with his son-in-law installed as the Archdeacon, intends to keep religious authority within the family. Zealous reformer John Bold comes into town to rail against Harding's ecclesiastical monopoly, creating unease amongst the reverend's hitherto devoted flock.

Collection of five films starring Sylvester Stallone. In 'Assassins' (1995) professional hitman Rath (Stallone) decides it's time to call it a day, even though he is still the best around. But as he searches for a way out he discovers that he is now the target of another assassin, Bain (Antonio Banderas), who is determined to be the new number one. The two men are both sent on an assignment to kill intelligence operative Elektra (Julianne Moore). However, Rath decides to flee with Elektra and outwit Bain. In 'The Specialist' (1994) US demolition expert Ray Quick (Stallone) attempts to abort the assassination of a South American drugs baron when he realises innocent children will be killed in the explosion. However, his partner (James Woods) goes ahead with the mission, leaving the duo permanently estranged and Quick psychologically scarred. Years later, a beautiful woman (Sharon Stone) asks Quick to come out of retirement to kill a Cuban drug lord who has murdered her father. Quick initially refuses, but is soon drawn into a plot that brings him in contact with his ex-partner once again. In 'Tango and Cash' (1989) two mismatched cops, one sharp-suited (Stallone), the other a slob (Kurt Russell), are thrown together when they are framed by a big-shot gun-runner (Jack Palance). They are put in prison, duly escape, and then attempt to clear their names whilst trying to track down a massive haul of weapons before they get shipped abroad. In 'Demolition Man' (1993) LA cop John Spartan (Stallone), nicknamed 'Demolition Man' due to his hands-on approach to law enforcement, is condemned to 70 years in the penal freezer after being set up by Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), Public Enemy Number One.
