No Score Yet Las Cosas del Querer (The Things of Love) (1989) Lustily produced and enormously entertaining as a musical, the film also fleshes out the characters... - OutWeek EDIT

No Score Yet Coming Out (1991) Line up early...the film has a sharp emotional power without giving in to its own melodramatic impulses... - OutWeek EDIT

No Score Yet Fun Down There (1990) Whether because of the unreflective script or the unpolished cast, the characters don't seem to have relationships -- they barely make contact with one another. - OutWeek EDIT

73% Cry-Baby (1990) It's not at all difficult to declare Cry-Baby the best American movie musical in recent memory. - OutWeek EDIT

94% The Freshman (1990) Without Brando, the movie would be all gags and surfaces. But the big guy's self-parody is so charming that the whole picture resonates with his presence. - OutWeek EDIT

85% The War of the Roses (1989) There's no foxier, more formidable screen vixen than Kathleen Turner, no better embodiment of self-deluding greed and innate sexism than Michael Douglas. - OutWeek EDIT

40% She-Devil (1989) An inept, offensive mess of a comedy. - OutWeek EDIT

56% Rosalie Goes Shopping (1989) [Director Percy Adlon] has faltered tremendously with Rosalie Goes Shopping. - OutWeek EDIT

89% Cinema Paradiso (Nuovo Cinema Paradiso) (1988) It's another clean, colorful community with an unreal sense of vitality, everyone playing a comfortable role in the neat storyline. - OutWeek EDIT

100% Roger & Me (1989) [Michael Moore] made his point by making a terrifically enjoyable, provocative film. Beyond that, he couldn't care less what anyone else thinks. - OutWeek EDIT

68% Steel Magnolias (1989) Let's be frank. You don't go to a movie like this unless you're looking for quick laughs and cheap tears, or the next camp classic. (This isn't It.) - OutWeek EDIT

50% Immediate Family (1989) Their willful exploitation of a young woman in financial straits struck me as pathetic, particularly since the Masterson character is as full of life and passion as the yuppie couple is empty. - OutWeek EDIT

56% Look Who's Talking (1989) [Amy Heckerling] bulls her way through this smash-hit comedy by playing up to the most base assumptions of the average audience. - OutWeek EDIT

No Score Yet Men in Love (1990) It's never clear why anyone buys into this sort of spiritual egoism, of even what it is exactly that they believe. - OutWeek EDIT

62% Dick Tracy (1990) Dick Tracy is a painted globe of a movie. Lushly artistic on the surface but resoundingly hollow, it bounces around aimlessly and finally ricochets right off the audience into oblivion, leaving hardly a trace. - OutWeek EDIT

60% Lord of the Flies (1989) Dialogue and actions that resonate in the novel and in the Peter Brook film version here fall lifeless onto the sandy beach. - OutWeek EDIT

67% Átame! (Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!) (1990) If the film has a subtext that's supposed to excuse the gross sexism, sadism and stupidity inherent in its storyline and characters, I certainly couldn't find it. - OutWeek EDIT

No Score Yet The Everlasting Secret Family (1989) The despoiling of an Innocent boy by a lecherous older man Is only the beginning of the march of gay stereotypes. - OutWeek EDIT

73% Blaze (1989) Not a moment is believable. - OutWeek EDIT

98% My Left Foot (1989) [Jim Sheridan's] inconspicuous but affecting direction filters through the well-drawn characters (played by a uniformly brilliant cast). - OutWeek EDIT

67% Mountains of the Moon (1990) Who would have picked Bob Rafelson as the heir to David Lean? But there it is: an epic, historical adventure of the sort you thought they didn't make anymore. - OutWeek EDIT

69% The Godfather, Part III (1990) Countless set-pieces, both intimate and explosively violent, build intoxicating tension. - OutWeek EDIT
