Posted Jun 18, 2002
19% Bye Bye Love (1994) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
1/4 64% Cobb (1994) " This histrionic portrait of the most celebrated cur in sports history comes across like a fly ball that thuds on the ground." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002

Posted Jun 18, 2002
4/4 54% Why Do Fools Fall In Love (1998) " A fresh, enlightening example of how to take a tragic American show-business story and make it funny, warm and terrifically entertaining." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
20% D3: The Mighty Ducks (1996) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002

3/4 78% Muriel's Wedding (1995) " There's poignant drama in this brash, sometimes overstated film, and Muriel's transformation is truly touching." — San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 43% Oliver & Company (1988) " The film offers a fanciful, lush urban setting, unusual for Disney animated features, and a couple of good songs." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 55% Star Trek - Insurrection (1998) " Fun for most folks, heaven for Trekkers." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
2/4 35% Space Jam (1996) " It's the first time either Jordan or Bugs has had a starring role on the big screen. It's gimmicky Saturday-morning cartoon wackiness in your face -- funny, but brain-deadening." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 78% Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) " Though it looks almost too polished, a handful of eye-smacking action scenes were breakthroughs in precomputer cinematic graphics. And when the film moves, it does so with blazing energy and awesome noise." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
15% Moonlight and Valentino (1995) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
4/4 97% Babe (1995) " A lovely, intelligent gem of G-rated entertainment that is also rib-tickling funny." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 80% Soul Food (1997) " A warm, funny, touching African American family drama, the kind of bittersweet melodrama that critics tend to relegate as crowd-pleasing corn. We could use more when it's this well done." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
2/4 45% Dead Presidents (1995) " It's an overly ambitious effort that strains to work as a coming-of-age drama, a 1960s period piece and a searing comment on the way African American GIs went largely unappreciated for their war efforts." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 46% Ghosts of Mississippi (1997) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
31% Mulholland Falls (1996) San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Jun 18, 2002
55% Extreme Measures (1996) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
4/4 92% A Bug's Life (1998) " One of the great movies -- a triumph of storytelling and character development, and a whole new ballgame for computer animation." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 85% Fly Away Home (1996) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
4/4 93% James and the Giant Peach (1996) " James and the Giant Peach is frequently so alluring that viewers may feel the urge to get lost in the picture's curious shadings, intricate merriment and fantastical atmosphere." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
2/4 26% Mary Reilly (1996) " The film is too mannered, too stuffy." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002

50% Jumanji (1995) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 60% The Preacher's Wife (1996) " The Preacher's Wife qualifies as old-fashioned Hollywood movie making at its corniest and most saccharine. But the mostly African American cast puts an engaging spin on the chestnut, and it works beautifully." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
2/4 69% Restoration (1996) " The movie takes on a somber, fitful atmosphere of straining epic proportions. But it strays into an episodic bog that leaves it gasping for dramatic life." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
2/4 54% Girl, Interrupted (1999) " A muddled production that misses the jarring tone of the autobiographical book by Susanna Kaysen on which it is based. The film is entertaining, but not very powerful." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 73% The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) " Gorgeous but dark -- not the usual Disney experience." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 80% He Got Game (1998) " Washington's Jake Shuttlesworth looks tough and hard, an odd but refreshing turn for an actor long associated with handsomely heroic roles." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
4/4 83% Waking Ned Devine (1998) " There is some nudity in Ned Devine, but it's the funniest nudity in movies in ages." — San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 18, 2002
3/4 53% Escape from L.A. (1996) " Dark, percussive and perversely fun." — San Francisco Chronicle
