Mr Wu’s top five movies to hire this month are science fiction horror thriller A Quiet Place, and Dwayne Johnson thriller Rampage.

He also recommends man-versus-nature film Walking Out, as well as American war movie The Yellow Birds, and Steven Spielberg adventure Ready Player One.

Brand new in the store this week include Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty, political satire The Death of Stalin, Woody Harrelson playing 36th American President Lyndon B. Johnson in LBJ, action movie Bent, psychological horror film Marrowbone, sport drama Breath, crime thriller Thumper, and and sci-fi flick Time Trap.

Mr Wu’s personal favourites this month are The Post – an American historical political thriller film directed and produced by Steven Spielberg following newspaper The Washington Post’s first female publisher – and The Foreigner – an action thriller based on the 1992 novel The Chinaman by Stephen Leather.

If you’re in the mood for a classic, Mr Wu’s top recommendation this month is the 1997 American epic romance and disaster film by James Cameron, Titanic. If you’re lucky, you might even hear Mr Wu – a singing enthusiast – belt out his rendition of the film’s title track, ‘My Heart Will Go On’ by Celine Dion (who coincidentally just wrapped-up a sell-out tour of Australia and New Zealand).

Windsor Civic Video is now the only movie hire shop left in the Hawkesbury, and one of only a handful in the greater Sydney region. There is only one other Civic Video franchise trading in NSW, at Shellharbour.
