4/5 92% Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) With Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Cameron has bested his own earlier effort with a sequel that takes the original themes, the darkly high-tech style and the cutting wit of his 1984 sci-fi hit The Terminator and pumps the energy up to kinetic overload.‐ Tulsa World

5/5 86% Field of Dreams (1989) It's hard to imagine a cynicism so hardened that it won't crumble at the sight of a lush green baseball field nestled into an Iowa cornfield and at this movie's final inspiring scene of youth and innocence recaptured.‐ Tulsa World

1.5/4 40% Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) MMPR: The Movie will adequately keep its intended audience occupied for a couple of hours on a hot summer day. But parents shouldn't kid themselves that their children are also being exposed to wholesome, positive values.‐ Tulsa World

3% The Mod Squad (1999) [A] woefully uncool, unfunny, unnecessary recycling of the old TV show.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 83% Jerry Maguire (1996) The halting romance between Maguire and Dorothy -- he fearing intimacy, she admiring his budding humanity -- is one of the film's surpassing pleasures. The excellent supporting cast is another.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 78% Rudy (1993) Corny and manipulative as it is, Rudy is a movie that makes you want to cheer -- if not for the real-life Rudy Ruettiger's public relations triumph, at least for the mythical Rudy's brave pursuit of an All-American dream.‐ Tulsa World

4/4 87% Presumed Innocent (1990) The film's densely constructed trial sequences are freighted with rich detail, unexpected turns and intimate insights into the criminal justice system.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 82% Total Recall (1990) All told, Total Recall is a powerful brew of mordant humor, keen wit, refreshing originality and graphic violence.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 91% Minority Report (2002) Even if he belabors the ending and can't resist tempering the darkness with a strained ray of hopefulness, Minority Report is a document that proves Spielberg among the top ranks in a minority of film geniuses.‐ Tulsa World

1/4 15% Graffiti Bridge (1990) Hardcore Prince fans might revel in His Royal Purpleness' muted philisopical musings, but everyone else will likely find this film an overblown bore.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 79% Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book (1994) In the end, Rudyard's Kipling's The Jungle Book gains very little from this newest incarnation. As live-action fare, it has nothing on the 1942 version of the story that starred the Indian actor Sabu as Kipling's wild child.‐ Tulsa World

4/4 72% Forrest Gump (1994) It's a lovely and wise story told with honesty and acted out with unassuming grace. To his collection of medals, trophies and kudos, Forrest Gump should add an Oscar or two.‐ Tulsa World

4/4 97% Schindler's List (1993) It's an extraordinary work of vision and passion that raises even the gifted Spielberg to a new level of artistry. And like all great works, it elevates everyone who views it.‐ Tulsa World

5/5 82% Driving Miss Daisy (1989) It's a story about interior lives and the gradual changes that love and respect can bring about. That's rare in today's movies, and it's something to be treasured.‐ Tulsa World

4/4 92% Shakespeare in Love (1998) A sprightly valentine to the heady world of comedy, drama, romance, art, commerce and language that is the theater.‐ Tulsa World

51% The World Is Not Enough (1999) A highly effective amalgam of old and new.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 78% GoldenEye (1995) Walking a fine line between '60s cultural kitsch and '90s entertainment hype, GoldenEye delivers some slick, generation-spanning thrills and proves that while Bond may be something of a political and social dinosaur, there's still life in the old boy yet.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 93% Salaam Bombay! (1988) Very sad, but powerfully moving.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 95% The Silence of the Lambs (1991) The Silence of the Lambs, with its dark Freudian subtext, its Poe-like air of foreboding and its chillingly gritty characterizations, is simply a very tough and very scary little movie.‐ Tulsa World

2.5/4 32% Good Burger (1997) The rest is a pranky, sketchy romp filled with goofy capers by Kenan and Kel. Together, they generate a kind of loopy charm, taking off from Kenan's woozy naivete and Kel's rubber-faced physicality.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 30% Hocus Pocus (1993) This is one of the oddest releases of the summer, and it's hard to imagine it finding a broad audience. With the rather ghoulish deaths of children depicted, it's certainly too strong for very young moviegoers.‐ Tulsa World

96% Supercop (1996) Supercop is filled with wide shots and long takes making it clear that Chan and Khan really are out there on the edge performing those bone- crunching stunts.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 93% The Lion King (1994) Disney can take pride in this lion of a movie.‐ Tulsa World

4/4 99% Finding Nemo (2003) A lavish feast and the best family catch of the summer blockbuster season.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 37% Fletch Lives (1989) Your appreciation of this film will rest largely on your taste for Chase's particular brand of snide comedy. If you like Chase, Fletch lives; if you hate Chase, Fletch dies.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 77% A League of Their Own (1992) If director Penny Marshall were a baseball player, she'd probably be a scrappy catcher who plays steadily and reliably, always has her head in the game and usually comes through in the clutch.‐ Tulsa World

6% Gigli (2003) Overlong, plodding, tone-deaf, unfunny and preposterous.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 97% Babe (1995) Wise, captivating and thoroughly loony, this artful little farm fable is one of those rare films that works for all age levels.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 70% Die Hard 2 (1990) Die Hard 2 delivers everything you'd expect from the title's promise. Trouble is, Die Hard 2 really didn't need to wallow in graphic violence to be a good, engaging picture.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 84% Orlando (1993) Writer-director Sally Potter's film, based on the classic Virginia Woolf novel, is a lyrical history lesson on the nature of sexual politics.‐ Tulsa World

82% Talk Radio (1988) Talk Radio has all the charm of a conversation with Morton Downey Jr. and Geraldo Rivera. It's fascinating without being likable. It's exploitative, mean-spirited and angry... and very compelling.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 90% Million Dollar Baby (2004) Million Dollar Baby provides a suitably rough-hewn canvas on which Eastwood can practice his spartan, highly personal brand of storytelling, and he puts his stamp indelibly on it as producer, director, star and composer.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 85% Chicago (2002) Marshall and company have given the old genre a swift, vigorous kick in the pants. Chicago is one movie that won't let us down; it's our kind of town.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 74% Crash (2004) Crash has its moments of wrenching tragedy and chaotic, overcrowded drama, mitigated by flashes of caustic humor and insights of stark truth.‐ Tulsa World

5/5 82% Dances With Wolves (1990) [Dances With Wolves] is so evocative of the sweep and lyricism of the American West that it could be pegged as the cinematic equivalent of a Frederic Remington painting.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 86% The Hunt for Red October (1990) The big question hanging over the much-anticipated film version of novelist Tom Clancy's best-seller The Hunt for Red October is how, in the current world climate,this cold war thriller will stand up to the warm glow of glasnost. The answer is: just fine.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 67% Prancer (1989) In the end, Prancer is a simple pleasure as the story of one special child's faith in the spirit of Christmas, a faith that changes her family and her community for the better.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 84% Elf (2003) Raise a glass of cheer to Ferrell and Favreau. They might not have created a full-scale holiday classic here, but they've certainly given us a fresh, sparkly new bauble to hang on our perennial tree.‐ Tulsa World

4/5 81% Batman Returns (1992) Director Tim Burton, apparently given a free hand to create a follow-up to the hugely successful 1989 Batman, marshals all his forces to create an elaborately melancholy ode to alienation.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 78% Bad Santa (2003) You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry, and you'd better not take the kiddies to see this wickedly adult vision of a boozing, whoring, swearing department-store Santa Claus.‐ Tulsa World

74% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) Kubrick stirs so many visual wonders and intellectual quandaries into the mix that the result is strangely mesmerizing and unsettlingly unforgettable.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 88% Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) By demonstrating to us how Harry and his friends are budding and changing and struggling, the film demonstrates the progressive richness of Rowling's storytelling skills and oddly haunting allure of her writing.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 91% The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) It's hard to imagine any but the most nit-picky and dogmatic being disappointed by this epic, lovingly crafted movie.‐ Tulsa World

82% Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is good enough to satisfy hard-core fans, even if it falls short of being truly transporting moviemaking.‐ Tulsa World
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2014
4/4 92% The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1989) The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a fairy tale of large heart and limitless vision. Like its maker, it staunchly defies the exigencies of reason to pursue a bigger vision of imagination.‐ Tulsa World

95% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) While the acting is once more solid throughout, even with the Shakespearean Ian McKellen given too little to do as the good wizard Gandalf, the most impressive performance of all comes from digital magicians who created the wretched Gollum, Smeagol.‐ Tulsa World
