95% Apollo 13 (1995) APOLLO 13 is...A-OK. In an era when cinematic heroics seem to be defined by bullets and brawn, it is a pleasure to see a movie in which the good guys triumph by using their brains!!!‐ CNN.com

50% Phenomenon (1996) Travolta is terrific! And in a movie season dominated by brainless action flicks and big explosions, Phenomenon is something magically different.‐ CNN.com

83% Hercules (1997) Kids will love Hercules. It's fast-paced, it's funny, and it has a very positive message. Adults will enjoy it as well, thanks to its animated artistry and sly wit.‐ CNN.com

63% Mission: Impossible (1996) The "set" pieces of this film come off like clockwork, but there's no connective tissue -- no story line, no solid characterization, etc. In the end, De Palma's work seems full of sound and visual fury without signifying much of anything.‐ CNN.com

39% Batman Forever (1995) Batman Forever is a visual tour de force, a knock-your-eyes-out effort. But it overdoes, overkills. And what starts out exhilarating ends up...exhausting.‐ CNN.com

55% Con Air (1997) It's exhausting rather than exhilarating.‐ CNN.com

57% Jackie Chan's First Strike (1996) Jackie Chan's First Strike is kung-foolishness of a very entertaining sort, and action fans will get a kick out of it.‐ CNN.com

53% The Cable Guy (1996) The film's heavy-handed message about the negative effect television has had on the national psyche doesn't help matters.‐ CNN.com

61% Mimic (1997) Mimic will have entomophobes in the audience yearning to bug out, and scare-seekers squirming in their seats.‐ CNN.com

73% My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) Although [Hogan] stages most of the scenes in a straightforward way for Friend's Wedding, there are some charming, offbeat touches here. One wishes he'd mined some of the story's kinkier subtexts a bit more, but hey ... this is a commercial-minded flick.‐ CNN.com

13% The Scarlet Letter (1995) Oldman scores a few points as Dimmsdale, but he's ultimately undone by the muttonheaded script. It doesn't help that his character's been turned into a kind of angsty hippie-dippie dude.‐ CNN.com

3% Speed 2 - Cruise Control (1997) It's not really worth sinking your time and money into. This movie is more floundering than fun.‐ CNN.com

55% Addicted to Love (1997) The main problem with this movie is that it wavers between touchy-feely sweetness and dark-hearted nastiness. Its indecisiveness of tone ends up undermining and unraveling the production.‐ CNN.com

19% Jungle 2 Jungle (1997) Jungle2Jungle is adequate family fare, not much more.‐ CNN.com

84% The Wings of the Dove (1997) The Wings of the Dove flies high in a year when a whole lot of mega-buck movies barely got off the ground. It's exquisite -- and very adult -- entertainment.‐ CNN.com

34% The Devil's Own (1997) While this film runs almost two hours, it seems longer because of the pacing.‐ CNN.com

71% Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997) If you're in the mood for fluffy fun, it is likely to make you laugh. The flick holds special charms for moviegoers who, like me, were not members of their high school "in" crowd.‐ CNN.com

85% Anastasia (1997) Anastasia is OK entertainment. But it never reaches a level of emotional magic.‐ CNN.com

24% Commandments (1997) Quinn is excellent as Seth. He's smart, he's sexy, and he lends a special spirit to his square-off with the Lord.‐ CNN.com

28% The Saint (1997) The Saint isn't unforgivable, but it definitely falls short of being satisfying entertainment.‐ CNN.com

40% Anaconda (1997) The monster looks like a maniacal garden hose in a couple of sequences. Still, it delivers the necessary thrills and chills.‐ CNN.com

78% GoldenEye (1995) James Bond's latest outing is big, and it's brash -- in short, it's double-oh-fun.‐ CNN.com

32% Good Burger (1997) Good Burger isn't USDA Choice by any means, but it's an enjoyable family flick with a nice message about friendship and responsibility.‐ CNN.com

25% Fathers' Day (1997) Father's Day has a few laugh-out-loud sequences, but it's nothing to celebrate.‐ CNN.com

80% Seven (Se7en) (1995) The movie is riveting in a gut-twisting way, but I, myself, would not call it "entertaining."‐ CNN.com

63% Independence Day (1996) Splendidly cheesy entertainment.‐ CNN.com
