Out of Sync (1995)









































Starring:
Even with his personal life out of control, no one commands the rave club audience like deejay and ex-con Jason St. Julian (LL Cool J). That makes him the perfect target for ruthless cop Marcus Caldwell (Howard Hesseman) who forces Jason to become his eyes and ears at the dance club owed by drug dealing Danny Simon, the same man responsible for sending Jason to prison. While waiting for the big drug deal to go down, Jason flirts with danger every time he flirts with scintillating Monica Collins (Victoria Dillard), Danny's main squeeze. Even in a world of conscienceless hitmen, cutthroat, and sadistic drug lords, Monica is the most dangerous player of all.

The Principal (1987)




















































Starring:

Burglary. Drugs Assualt. The students at Brandel High are more than the new principal Rick Latimer (James Belushi) bargained for. Gangs fight to control the school using knives — even guns — when they have to. When Latimer and the head of security (Louis Gossett, Jr.) try to clean up the school and stop the narcotics trade, they run up against a teenage mafia. A violent confrontation on the campus leads to a deadly showdown with the drug dealer's gang, and one last chance or Latimer to save his career... and his life.
