2/4 60% Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars (2004) Fans of the Sci-Fi Channel series will be glad to rejoin the characters they grew to love, but newcomers may not find this further adventure especially appealing.‐ TV Guide

2/5 No Score Yet Ablaze (2002) Far from of delivering three-alarm fire action, this smoke-filled disaster movie barely smolders.‐ TV Guide

2/4 No Score Yet Fugitive Mind (1999) Even if the script defies logic once too often, the personable Dudikoff enlists our sympathy for the hero's waking nightmare.‐ TV Guide

4/5 72% Calamity Jane (1953) Even if the screenwriters were obviously inspired by the mega-success of Annie Get Your Gun, that doesn't make this funny, rambunctious entertainment a mere rip-off.‐ TV Guide

2/5 30% Rogue Trader (1999) Succeeding neither as a dissection of rampant egoism nor as a critique of the British class system, and rooting shamelessly for its notorious protagonist, this not-so-cautionary tale about the perils of white-collar crime is a piece of cinematic puffery.‐ TV Guide

1.5/4 17% Bongwater (1998) It's hard to concur with the screenplay's insistence that there's both pathos and humor to be found in the bong-inhaling, bed-hopping lives of these indolent characters.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 88% Piccadilly (1929) Dupont's stunning evocation of London's roaring twenties would be of cinematic interest even without Wong; but her sultry presence makes this backstage melodrama a must-see.‐ TV Guide

3/4 74% Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her (2000) An imaginatively constructed soap-opera with a high-powered cast, this film follows several narrative threads, all involving unfulfilled Los Angeles women who find inner peace after learning there are worse things than loneliness.‐ TV Guide

4/4 94% Porco Rosso (Kurenai no buta) (1992) Animator/fabulist Hayao Miyazaki pays homage to Hollywood's wartime adventure films in this masterwork built around the adventures of a high-flying pig.‐ TV Guide

2/4 0% Killing Me Softly (2003) Why, you might ask, is master director Chen Kaige wasting his time on such trashy material?‐ TV Guide

4/4 97% Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no haka) (1988) Takahata's alternately sweeping and intimate animated feature is a moving depiction of the fates of cast-off children who become casualties of war.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 95% Castle in the Sky (1989) Unusually detailed animation glides hand in hand with the film's aura of wonderment.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 90% The Cat Returns (2002) Director Morita does an exemplary job of bringing a Japanese graphic novel to the screen.‐ TV Guide

2.5/4 71% Zhong Nan Hai bao biao (The Defender) (The Bodyguard from Beijing) (1994) Li exudes enough magnetism to make the sexual banter with his fair damsel credible, and enough athletic prowess to simultaneously power this and several other vehicles.‐ TV Guide

2.5/4 No Score Yet The Sleeping Dictionary (2003) If your taste runs to palm fronds and moonlit rendezvous, you might enjoy this impeccably produced bit of kitsch.‐ TV Guide

1.5/4 No Score Yet Paranoid (2000) A film that lacks any real meaning whatsoever.‐ TV Guide

3/4 80% Gods of the Plague (Gotter der Pest) (1977) This wallow in fatalism is a minor but memorable crime flick.‐ TV Guide

3/4 67% Die Niklashauser Fart (The Niklashausen Journey) (1970) Twisting a German tradition to his own ends, Fassbinder restyles Bohm's martyrdom as a provocateur's call to arms.‐ TV Guide

2/4 67% Love Is Colder Than Death (1969) This film is too stylized and protracted to interest the average crime-movie fan. It's recommended only for Fassbinder completists.‐ TV Guide
