      Thelma & Louise (1991) Dennis King It’s not a great movie, but it has some appealing rough edges and definite cult potential. But the nicest thing about it is it gives two very good actresses the chance to get out on the road and go full out.

      The Big Lebowski (1998) Dennis King After the sharpness and coherence of Fargo, this film seems less a focused narrative than a freewheeling goof on movie conventions. However, even when they're not fully on their game, the Coens seem incapable of being boring.

      Addams Family Values (1993) Dennis King Director Barry Sonnenfeld and screenwriter Paul Rudnick (both back from the first film) maintain the perfect graveyard tone throughout. The black humor and ghoulish jokes come on like a hail of daggers. And most find their bloody funny marks.

      Titanic (1997) Dennis King For all the chatter about Cameron's tyrannical work ethic, his film's delayed release and its reported $220 million-plus budget, Titanic cruises majestically into America's multiplexes and delivers a whopping entertainment.

      Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) Dennis King [Washington] plays Easy as an honest, decent man with a wry sense of humor trying to do right in a world too often steered wrong. It's a marvelous piece of acting, drawing on equal parts matinee-idol slickness and mean-streets toughness.

      L.A. Confidential (1997) Dennis King With the relish of brazen headlines splashed across the top of a Police Gazette-type scandal sheet, L.A. Confidential peers seductively into the dark heart of the city and conjures up a grand piece of hard-boiled entertainment.

      The Astronaut farmer (2007) Michael Smith The filmmakers employ a good measure of schmaltz and shamelessly set up the rocket man with all of the dream-crushing road blocks you can imagine. But the good-natured affability of the whole thing works

      The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019) Michael Smith This "David Copperfield" constantly feels like the novel's "greatest hits" are being wedged into the two-hour running time, and it compromises both the audience and the book's characters.

      Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) John Wooley Gremlins 2 works better than its 1984 predecessor for one simple reason: Gremlins was only partially goofy, while Gremlins 2 is totally goofy.

      Seven Days in Utopia (2011) Michael Smith This religious fantasy has higher production values and a classier cast than similar productions, but little interest in telling a story that goes beyond its Christian message.

      The Story of Us (1999) Dennis King In its comfy material trappings and minor-note concerns, "The Story of Us," seems to be less about the universal "us" than about one pair of well- to-do, self-involved yuppies with an overblown sense of entitlement to the perfect life.

      Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Michael Smith You don't go to "Birds of Prey" looking for depth of meaning in women's continuing fight for equality with men. You go for bad men being beaten senseless with a bit of style - and a lot of glitter.
