79% Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book (1994) "Sommers would have done better if he had spent more time on character development (including some of the animal characters) and less on turning Mowgli into Indiana Jones. In some ways, this is as cartoony as the '67 version. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Mar 15, 2002
2.5/4 95% Castle in the Sky (1989) "Try to picture Terry Gilliam doing an animated Star Wars by way of Jules Verne. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Mar 7, 2002
3/4 63% White Fang (1991) "Grand family-oriented adventure on an epic scale... " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 31, 2002
8% The Opposite Sex And How To Live With Them (1993) "A dreadful semi-off-the-wall romantic comedy, which is a rehash of many other bad romantic comedies. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Nov 17, 2001
0% Folks! (1992) "Folks! is a dreadful comedy about, of all things, Alzheimer's disease. And, just in case this isn't offensive enough, there's attempted suicide, matricide and patricide in the film's final third. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Nov 17, 2001
0/4 19% Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) "Believe it or not, even horror movie fans like some meat in their stories. You should pardon the expression. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Oct 30, 2001
1/4 29% Men at Work (1990) "Men at Work will be a painful experience even for fans of the stars. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Sep 26, 2001
11% Batman & Robin (1997) "Too many villains and too many heroes. The clutter is headache-inducing. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jul 24, 2001
2.5/4 91% Kingdom - Series One (1996) "The show is very well acted and produced, cleverly written for the most part and generally quite entertaining. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Feb 21, 2001
3/4 100% I Am Cuba (Soy Cuba) (1995) "While it has its clumsy elements, there is no denying its remarkable cinematic impact. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Feb 21, 2001
4/4 98% The Player (1992) "A highly entertaining, dark film that says much about Hollywood -- and the audiences who watch Hollywood movies. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Feb 13, 2001
89% The Abyss (1989) "Begins with a bang and just keeps on rolling. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
92% The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1998) "Gilliam has set up so many entrancing set-pieces that it's impossible to list them all. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 88% Allegro Non Troppo (1976) "The animated pieces are uniformly terrific, some touching, most hilarious and more than a few expressing Bozzetto's trademark anti-war sentiments. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 64% Always (1989) "The story, which was set during World War II in the original film, has been updated and placed in modern times. And that's part of the problem. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 65% Another Woman (1988) "It makes for a decidedly uneven, occasionally fascinating, but ultimately rather frustrating experience. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 72% Apartment Zero (1989) "The film is so leisurely paced and low-key, and perhaps a bit too vague when it's trying to be enigmatic, that it becomes boring. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 100% L'Atalante (1934) "A favorite of film buffs for decades. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
63% Back to the Future Part II (1989) "Has the spirit, but it lacks the heart of the original film, and more importantly, much of the humor. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
72% Batman (1989) "Nicholson does indeed blow everybody else off the screen. Sometimes it seems this movie should be called Joker instead of Batman. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
91% The Big Picture (1989) "All in all this is a terrific comedy that punctures Hollywood's pretentiousness but is never mean-spirited about it. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
89% Blade Runner (1982) "A very dark and far too long thriller with many dull moments that would serve the film better by moving along a bit faster. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 61% Bright Lights, Big City (1988) "There is no question that this is Fox's film, and the range of emotion he shows, the edginess that he brings to the role will doubtless surprise those who think of him strictly as Alex P. Keaton or Marty McFly. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 85% Carnival of Souls (1962) "Modern horror filmmakers could learn something from Carnival of Souls. Harvey's technique may be crude, but he knew how to use the materials at hand to create atmosphere, making this film very much worth a look. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
84% Casualties of War (1989) ""Casualties of War" is a tough, flawed film, but overall is quite compelling. DePalma seems headed in the right direction. Let's hope he continues the journey. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 64% Chances Are (1989) "An amusing diversion. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 50% Cheetah (1989) "An overly sentimental 'family film' that brings to mind the old Disney True-Life Adventures, Cheetah is a very old-fashioned movie. And that's not meant as a compliment. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
100% Citizen Kane (1941) "Today, the black-and-white classic holds up as a stirring portrait of not only its main subject, but of the American Dream, success as it can only be achieved in this country -- or so we like to think. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
93% Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) "By far the most stark blending of humor and tragedy to come to the movies in some time. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14% Masters of the Universe 2: Cyborg (1989) "In the end it's a little unfair to assess Van Damme in this picture, since Robert De Niro would have trouble seeming credible in these surroundings. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
82% Dead Calm (1989) "An interesting failure that promises more than it delivers. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
85% Dead Poets Society (1989) "All the performances are excellent, particularly the complex shadings of Leonard, but Williams is especially memorable. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 82% Driving Miss Daisy (1989) "Led by riveting performances from Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy, this Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy-drama is utterly enthralling, though also quite spare and intimate. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 100% Drugstore Cowboy (1989) "There's a lot of humor here, some of it quite black, as the story unfolds in a stark, matter-of-fact style. And it is the many little realistic touches here and there that make the film ring true. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
81% A Dry White Season (1989) "There is much to admire here, and on the whole, if the film doesn't quite satisfy, it does get its point across well enough to make it worth a look. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 66% Earth Girls Are Easy (1989) "Even running out of steam as it eventually does, there is zany goofball fun for the undiscriminating moviegoer. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 53% Fat Man and Little Boy (1989) "It's just too distanced to allow us to get involved. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 86% Field of Dreams (1989) "A magical, often funny, utterly delightful movie, one that will stay with you for some time to come. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37% Fletch Lives (1989) "On the whole, I got a kick out of this one and found Chase in rare form. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23% The Forbidden Dance (1990) "The Forbidden Dance might be unintentionally funny if it didn't trivialize the very real plight of the Amazon rain forests. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Posted Jan 1, 2000
1.5/4 21% Harlem Nights (1989) "It's narcissistic, misogynistic and extremely mean-spirited. " ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Jan 1, 2000
