Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Deadly Relations (1993) Film is ... well produced, with special praise due to production designer Barry Robinson and crew, who captured the feel of the 1960s and '70s not only with accuracy, but also from an uncannily fresh point of view.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Without a Kiss Goodbye (Falsely Accused) (The Laurie Samuels Story) (1993) Black and Meloni give well-crafted, solid performances. Leachman and Staley are outstanding as the turncoat mother-in-law and the smarmy, self-satisfied trial lawyer, respectively.‐ Variety

No Score Yet The Heart of Justice (1993) Stoltz is disappointing and drab as the reporter, and the other actors seem stranded with a woeful lack of direction.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Journey to the Center of the Earth (1993) Missing is the tongue-in-cheek spirit of fun that made adventure romps like Raiders of the Lost Ark a treat.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Frankie's House (1992) What this film does well is to offer a small slice of the war told from the very human P.O.V. of an eccentric Englishman who stumbles into this post-colonial Armageddon.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Private Debts (1989) Cooperstein's direction is right on the mark, going for the rich subtext of feeling as Jessie is forced into the arms of man after man on the dance floor.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Gregory K (1993) The emotional power of the issue of child neglect makes up for lackluster performances and predictable retelling of the story of Gregory K, based on the 12-year-old who sued to terminate his parents' rights so that he could be adopted by foster parents.‐ Variety

No Score Yet I Can Make You Love Me (1993) Formulaic drama based on the true story of Richard Farley ... combines woman-in-jeopardy and mass-killer genres into a predictable and often gruesome concoction that has little to offer other than gratuitous violence.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Overkill: The Aileen Wuornos Story (1992) While the movie does not purport to offer a larger message or moral about this female serial killer, it does offer a fascinating and poignant miniaturist portrait of the troubled lives of Wuornos and her companion Moore.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Mastergate (1992) The point is made in the first 20 minutes and, despite some sparkling dialogue, very little happens to hold viewer interest.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Desperate Choices: To Save My Child (1992) Actors do their best in these circumstances, with Witherspoon bearing up particularly well under the relentless melodramatic pounding. However, nobody comes out very well in this sentimental mush.‐ Variety
