Lost Souls (2000)

"There's a good reason this lackluster fright-fest sat on the shelf for two years. It's nothing more than a tired Winona Ryder vehicle taking advantage of the topic du jour -- demonic possession."

Dudley Do-Right (1999)

"Pacing is slow in this comedy, as if actors are waiting -- along with the weary kids and adults in the audience -- for anyone to say something funny. We're still waiting."

Les MisÚrables (1995)

"Arresting images, the timeless battle of good and evil and triumph over insurmountable odds combine to lend a worldly veneer to this three-hour epic. In terms of human destiny, it speaks volumes."

The Legend of Drunken Master (Jui kuen II) (Drunken Fist II) (1994)

"I'm extremely unhappy when one of my HK favorites is re-released, re-titled and re-packaged as an English-dubbed Jackie Chan vehicle for American audiences to ostensibly enjoy."

Heat (1995)

"Pacino and De Niro are saddled with roles that leave little room for exploring the territory beyond their trademark styles, but the chemistry is electric and it's a flat-out thrill to see them together on the screen for the first time."
