Summary: In the Watergate building, lights go on and four burglars are caught in the act. That night triggered revelations that drove a U.S. President from office. Washington reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) grabbed the story and stayed with it through doubts, denials and discouragement. 'All The President's Men' is their story.

Directed by Alan J. Pakula and based on the Woodward/Bernstein book, the film won four 1976 Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor / Jason Robards, Adaptation Screenplay, Art Direction and Sound. It also explores a working newspaper, where the mission is to get the story --- and get it right.

Summary: Boyz N The Hood is the critically acclaimed story about three friends growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood, and of street life where friendship, pain, danger and love combine to form reality. "The Hood" is a place where drive-by shootings and unemployment are rampant. But it is also a place where harmony co-exists with adversity, especially for the three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father, and Ricky's best friend, Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond the "The Hood." In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Larry Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems like the only recourse. This powerful portrait of black urban America is "a film of enormous relevance and importance," --Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.
