REAL GENIUS (PG-13, 1985, 106 min)

Incoming freshman Mitch is a high school student whose Science Fair project has made important inroads into laser beam technology. Mitch has been recruited by famed physics professor Hathaway (William Atherton), who asks MItch to work in his laboratory. On campus, Mitch becomes roommates with the brilliant Chris Knight (Val KIlmer), legendary as the smartest freshman in the history of the college; but now, as a senior, he is less interested in his studies and more interested in having fun. It turns out that Hathaway is enlisting his students as a slave labor force to develop a state-of-the-art laser device for the Defense Department

and
ROADHOUSE (R, 1989, 114 min)

Dalton (Patrick Swayze) has a Ph.D., but rather than make a living teaching Socrates at some university, he's opted to become a barroom bouncer who can break up fights without getting himself killed in the process. Dalton is hired to keep the peace at the Double Duce, a rough-and-tumble honky tonk, where beer-soaked free-for-alls are a nightly event. Dalton is hurt on his first night on the job, and he is patched up by «Doc» Clay (Kelly Lynch), a beautiful woman working as the town's physician. Dalton and Doc immediately hit it off, but Dalton learns that another man, Brad Wesley (Ben Gazzara), already has his eye on her. Sam Elliott plays Dalton's mentor, Wade.
