T-Meter Title | Year Review
83% Dead Again (1991) The story finally twists and turns its way beyond the outer limits of probability, but Dead Again zings with a sheer joy in the process of movie-making, and with a respect for the genre that Hitchcock established. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

63% UHF (1989) UHF is a reference to the faltering television station that "Weird Al" Yankovic's character is trying to salvage with a line-up of weird shows. But the letters in the title of this filmed-in-Tulsa comedy could also mean Unlikely Homemade Fun. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

90% Edward Scissorhands (1990) A bittersweet fable with a satiric edge. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

21% Pink Cadillac (1989) Pink Cadillac is a vehicle that never does pick up much speed. The reason could be that it is hauling too heavy a load of the usual bad guys for Eastwood to knock down. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

96% Let's Get Lost (1989) Let's Get Lost is a film as sweet, seductive and heartbreaking as the sound of Chet Baker's trumpet -- the story of a man for whom music came easy, but life came hard. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

19% Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) The chainsaw is a marvel that starts on the first pull every time. The rest of Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is a rough-hewn movie that doesn't always work so well, but it has its moments strictly for an audience of horror hounds. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

16% The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990) The Bonfire of the Vanities is a false alarm, all smoke and not enough fire to toast a marshmallow. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

29% Almost an Angel (1990) Almost an Angel is almost a movie, but it could have been an episode of TV's Highway to Heaven just as well. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

53% Ghostbusters 2 (1989) Ghostbusters II is Murray's best work on film. His Dr. Venkman still is the first to crack a funny line, but Murray somehow has managed to slip a sense of niceness into this consummate wiseguy. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

88% Yeelen (Brightness) (1987) [It's] the kind of foreign movie that defies a rating system of "good" or "poor." It could be a film of high interest for the right audience, but most people aren't going to find much reason to stay awake for this hour and 45 minutes of spell-casting. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

67% The Masque of the Red Death (1989) Masque of the Red Death" is a Halloween treat that comes wrapped in a crinkly foil of nostalgia for horror movie fans. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

27% Who's Harry Crumb? (1989) Candy is a talented man who should be getting better parts in the movies. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

82% Dances With Wolves (1990) Dances With Wolves is flat-out the year's best movie to date. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

80% Blaze (1989) Maybe Blaze is too pure, and the governor too outrageous to be true. But Shelton works their story into a romantic tall tale as beguiling as the spin of the lady's tassels. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

86% Field of Dreams (1989) If you like to think of every time at bat as a new hope, if you can taste a kind of poetry along with the hot dogs they serve at the ballpark, if you like to imagine that life is meant to be good, and miracles aren't out of the question... go see [it]. - Tulsa World EDIT

64% Back to the Future Part II (1989) A dismal and mean-spirited sequel to one of the best movies of the 1980s. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

72% Cry-Baby (1990) It has a great score of obscure '50s rock and doo-wop. It has the candy-colored look of a '50s musical. What it doesn't have is a moment of anything that seems remotely real. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

82% Major League (1989) Major League smacks a solid base hit when the players decide their best revenge against the team's owner would be to win the American League pennant. It doubles when these guys begin to come together as a real team. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT

82% Total Recall (1990) Total Recall won't leave you with a lot to remember, but this science fiction shoot-'em-up is as good a way as any to forget about life's cares on a summer day. - Tulsa Tribune EDIT
