3/4 80% Rudy (1993) Anspaugh, whose Hoosiers showed he knows from feel-good movies, directs this story as if he were conducting Bolero, carefully building climax upon climax as the story spirals to an underdog triumph every bit as tearful as that of Rocky. ‐ Chicago Tribune

2.5/4 82% Total Recall (1990) As Quaid, Schwarzenegger continues to stretch beyond his reach as an actor, relying on physical prowess to keep him in character. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 27, 2016
2.5/4 62% Just Another Girl on the I.R.T. (1993) Stylishly shot and fast-paced, its hip-hop soundtrack features a host of women rappers, and its dialogue is heavy with attitude and body punctuation. ‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 30% Hocus Pocus (1993) Hocus Pocus is harmless, but it's about as much fun as celebrating Mardi Gras under the influence of candy corn. ‐ Chicago Tribune

3/4 83% Orlando (1992) What it lacks in coherence it makes up for in sheer spectacle. ‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 9% Mom and Dad Save the World (1992) Here's a novel idea: A kids' movie with parents as heroes. That twist is the most -- some might say only -- refreshing element in Mom and Dad Save the World. ‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 7% Man Trouble (1992) Rafelson, an accomplished screenwriter, seems unable, or unwilling, to give any shape to this mess. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 18, 2014
2.5/4 17% Masters of the Universe (1987) Everyone knows how the battles will turn out. It`s what`s between them that raises Masters Of The Universe ever so slightly above the mediocre. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Jul 11, 2014
2/4 19% Once Upon a Forest (1993) It contains a dire message: Man is destroying nature and progress is evil. It is hard to know what small children, the film's intended audience, are supposed to do with this idea. Nag their parents about recycling? Work it out in nightmares? ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 17, 2014
1/4 9% Drop Dead Fred (1991) Drop Dead Fred is a movie for people who like the sound of fingernails on blackboards and the feel of a drill bearing into a bicuspid. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted May 5, 2014
3/4 74% Three Men and a Baby (3 Men and a Baby) (1987) The film works well despite its predictability, perhaps because of it. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Apr 16, 2014
2.5/4 87% A Midnight Clear (1992) Despite such peculiarities, or perhaps because of them, A Midnight Clear has a quirky, haunting quality, delivering good performances all around, but especially from Sinise, Hawke and Frank Whaley. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Dec 4, 2013
3.5/4 85% The Secret Garden (1993) The film is gorgeous to look at, from its period accouterments to its wanderings in explored space (the house is full of secret passageways) to its use of color. ‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 11% Calendar Girl (1993) On film, the story's charm fades fast. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted May 28, 2013
2/4 6% Mobsters (1991) Despite competent production, despite-or perhaps because of-a high and inventively mutilated body count, the film is ultimately boring. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted May 21, 2013
2.5/4 31% Square Dance (1987) There are so many small, well-crafted touches about the movie it`s painful to report that the whole is not quite the sum of its parts. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted May 20, 2013
0.5/4 84% Lethal Weapon (1987) As action-adventure, it's pointlessly puerile, a movie where the heroes are so childish they try to one-up each other with fancy shots at the pistol range. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted May 13, 2013
1/4 11% Dead Heat (1988) Williams and Piscopo seem to be on autopilot when delivering their lines, not relating to one another, not picking up each other`s timing. ‐ Chicago Tribune
