1/4 46% Everybody's All-American (1988) "Movies don`t come more superficial than Everybody`s All-American. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 23, 2016
3.5/4 88% Sid and Nancy (1986) "Sid and Nancy is a brilliantly acted surprise from newcomers Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 9, 2016
32% Under the Cherry Moon (1986) "The music is great, the direction fast-paced, the whole film a lot of fun. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 22, 2016
70% The Living Daylights (1987) "Colorful, vibrant, exotic, The Living Daylights more than delivers an eyeful of entertainment. At a running length just over two hours, the most thrill- seeking Bond fans will get their money`s worth. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 20, 2015
3.5/4 92% Salaam Bombay! (1988) "Dispossession and despair are seldom portrayed with such force on-screen. Director Mira Nair has done a masterful job of underscoring a social problem that has repercussions far beyond the Third World. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 29, 2015
3.5/4 81% A Dry White Season (1989) "The tough-minded A Dry White Season is the best film yet about the struggle for justice in South Africa. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 28, 2015
15% Red Sonja (1985) "Deathless lines of dialogue like "In life all is not swordplay" make Red Sonja laughable in ways that the screenwriters did not intend. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 14, 2015
37% Fletch Lives (1989) "With the exception of an elaborate fantasy sequence straight out of a Disney movie and a running gag about a Cadillac without brakes, Fletch Lives should have been called Fletch Staggers. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 1, 2015
2/4 63% Back to the Future Part II (1989) "A rush job from filmmakers who should have left well enough alone. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 29, 2015
3/4 70% The Land Before Time (1988) "The Land Before Time works by evoking the simple virtues of this art aimed at children, as it was in the beginning when Disney animated Mickey Mouse. This film deserves a place next to the often-revived animated classics. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 8, 2015
3.5/4 81% Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) "Outrageously sinister, unblinkingly violent, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is everything that fans of the futurist road warrior could hope for and more. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 13, 2015
39% Rocky IV (1985) "The outcome of the film is predetermined by the formulaic scripts of Rocky II and Rocky III. Stallone boxed himself into a corner with this one. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 13, 2015
81% Jungle Fever (1991) "Jungle Fever is confidently acted, brilliantly written and thoroughly provocative. Lee has succeeded again. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 21, 2015
89% Fresh (1994) "It's rigorous and quite depressing fare. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 21, 2015
69% Die Hard 2 (1990) "Even in the action genre, there is such a thing as overkill. Die Hard 2: Die Harder pleads guilty to the charge but has enough redeeming plot twists to compensate for the excess. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 3, 2015
83% Orlando (1992) "Unlike anything onscreen this month or this year, Orlando is serious, provocative and sometimes funny fare. Novelist Virginia Woolf might well be pleased. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 23, 2015
3.5/4 100% Tampopo (1985) "Food, glorious food -- its life-giving, sensual, aromatic and filling properties are celebrated in the wacky Tampopo. This Japanese film is without precedent, no matter what country you are talking about. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 13, 2015
97% The Crying Game (1992) "Erratic but forcefully acted. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 9, 2015
88% Naked (1993) "See this film with a group of friends, and you may stay up late talking about it. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 4, 2015
93% Do the Right Thing (1989) "If you see only one movie in this season of blockbusters, make it Do the Right Thing. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 3, 2015
73% Cry-Baby (1990) "Cry-Baby takes digs at Jailhouse Rock in a musical number that Elvis would have loved to do. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 21, 2015
81% Let Him Have It (1991) "It is straightforward and riveting, with an unexpected emotional power. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 28, 2014
89% Light Sleeper (1992) "It`s a pretty good little movie, not so insignificantly for the performance of Willem Dafoe as the drug delivery man with a desire for a different life. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 9, 2014
67% Maverick (1994) "Goldman and director Richard Donner don't know when to stop mining a gag and to move on. That the film runs in excess of two hours is indicative of the filmmakers' love affair with scenes that don't work. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 2, 2014
21% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993) "These fighting-intensive movies, a glorification of hurtful action, are strictly for children. While the corpse count is low, the mimicking turtles stand for nothing more important than the employment of physical force. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 6, 2014
11% Club Paradise (1986) "This is a case where the actors are only as good as the script, which isn`t saying much. It`s not long into Club Paradise when you may feel the urge to get out. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 26, 2014
1.5/4 7% Man Trouble (1992) "Any comedy with Jack Nicholson has automatically got to be great, right? Think again. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 18, 2014
1.5/4 18% Rustlers' Rhapsody (1985) "What this one lacks is broad-barreled fun, which is the essential element in a spoof. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 15, 2014
14% My Boyfriend's Back (1993) "My Boyfriend`s Back is the lamest of the lame so far. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 15, 2014
3/4 19% Navy Seals (1990) "Good, solid entertainment -- that`s what Navy SEALs provides in a winning package worth the price of admission. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 14, 2014
15% Howard the Duck (1986) "The sad fact is that the duck gets lost in what becomes a special effects film suspiciously reminiscent of Ghostbusters. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 9, 2014
20% I Love Trouble (1994) "There's a pervasive romanticism in I Love Trouble that depends on the chemistry generated by Roberts and Nolte. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 17, 2014
3.5/4 19% Once Upon a Forest (1993) "From the first moments of Once Upon a Forest, there is evidence of high artistic standards. The backgrounds are beautifully detailed, right down to the shading and contours of a tree trunk. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 17, 2014
2.5/4 54% The Doors (1991) "The much-anticipated film is a psychedelic circus that turns into the worst nightmare of a bad trip. It`s an experience. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 17, 2014
80% Pretty in Pink (1986) "Pretty in Pink is an engaging movie about youthful concerns that never go out of fashion. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 9, 2014
100% Shoah (1985) "Lanzmann`s monumental film bears significant witness to the Holocaust. Those who see it will never forget it. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 3, 2014
3/4 82% My Own Private Idaho (1991) "Van Sant proves again that he is masterful at charting the hearts and minds of young people adrift. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 2, 2014
73% Fried Green Tomatoes (1991) "The fine performances and worthy themes are sold short. There are two films here, neither one of which is as fully developed as it could be. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 2, 2014
77% Licence To Kill (1989) "Licence to Kill gets better as it unfolds for more than two hours. It just takes an insufferably long while to find the right pace. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 20, 2014
1.5/4 39% Days of Thunder (1990) "Days of Thunder lives up to its title in one respect. It`s big-time noisy. It`s also as empty as the stands at the Daytona 500 an hour after the race. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 20, 2014
58% The Sandlot (1993) "In this well-crafted movie, a strong cohesive ensemble makes the team likable. Guiry as Scotty is especially good. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 7, 2014
64% Cobb (1994) "To watch Tommy Lee Jones re-create the persona of the Hall of Famer in Cobb is to encounter the greatest SOB ever to come down the pike -- in or out of the domain of sports. The trek is hardly entertaining. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 6, 2014
0% American Anthem (1986) "Essentially, American Anthem is an idea in search of a screenplay, " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 5, 2014
12% Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) "It`s hard to summon much wonder when Superman goes mano-a-mano with Nuclear Man, a Lex Luthor creation with a static electricity problem. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 5, 2014
9% Drop Dead Fred (1991) "A charmless, irritating psychological fantasy that can`t decide whether to aim at kids or adults. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 5, 2014
7% Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (1992) "Dry as an outdated textbook, scintillating as the droning of your worst schoolteacher, Christopher Columbus: The Discovery is a colossal disaster. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 3, 2014
3/4 81% A Few Good Men (1992) "More than competent are Moore, spared from what would have been a phony romantic involvement with Cruise, Kevin Bacon as a prosecutor and Kiefer Sutherland as a by-the-book Marine. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 30, 2014
85% My Cousin Vinny (1992) "The screenplay by Dale Launer has all the sophomoric qualities of a C- grade TV movie. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 30, 2014
59% Disclosure (1994) "It soars because of the sizzling chemistry of Douglas and Demi Moore. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 25, 2014
50% Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) "With a strange mix of varying English and American accents and the weight of a film with too many subplots, Robin Hood strains credibility. It also feels long. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
