Shrek (2001)
A world-class charmer.

Glory (1989)
Matthew Broderick [is] catastrophically miscast as Shaw.

An entertaining trifle.

The Abyss (1989)
Anyone looking for a discouraging word about this stupendously exciting and emotionally engulfing film should read no further. The Abyss confirms James Cameron as a world-class filmmaker.

If inspiration is lacking, talent is not. Count Lynch down but never out.

Lumet's no-bull New York sensibility clashes repeatedly with Avrech's romance-novel mawkishness.

Though the idea is dumb enough to be fun, director Roland Emmerich does the Terminator thing without much style, and the two stars bash into each other but never connect.

As a friend tells Buffy while she eyes a fashion purchase, 'It's so five minutes ago.'

Encino Man (1992)
God help us all.

Poison Ivy (1992)
Why settle for the usual walk around the exploitation block when Shea offers a wild ride with the top down into uncharted territory?

Mediocrity wielded by experts.
Posted May 12, 2001

Alien3 (1992)
Bold and haunting

Burton uses the summer's most explosively entertaining movie to lead us back into the liberating darkness of dreams.

The movie kills most of the fun by watering down Clancy.

Verhoeven's cinematic wet dream delivers the goods, especially when Sharon Stone struts on with enough come-on carnality to singe the screen.

You might not remember much about My Cousin Vinny an hour later, but the cast makes the jokes (even the bad ones) go down easy.

Greenaway bombards you with images, with no regard for the average attention span. Is he a genius or a fake? Debating that question is almost as stimulating as watching a Greenaway film.

Radio Flyer (1992)
Despite the flaws, Evans's thoughtful script and the unclichTd performances of Wood and Mazzello exert a powerful grip. The film stays with you.

Cradle is the kind of cheap thrill you hate yourself for responding to. But director Curtis Hanson and a terrific cast provide enough scary fun to make Cradle the first fright-night hit of '92.

Hear My Song (1991)

Hook (1991)
No matter how much cash Hook earns, it will take more than pixie dust to fly this overstuffed package into our dreams.
Posted May 12, 2001

Rush (1999)
Despite the false notes and grinding bleakness, the film's insider savvy makes for pungent drama.

Bugsy (1991)
31
JFK (1991)
As speculation, JFK is riveting. As proof, it's bunk. Stone has turned what he considers the crime of the century into a disturbing anomaly -- a dishonest search for truth.

3/4
Slacker (1991)
What Linklater has captured is a generation of bristling minds unable to turn their thoughts into action.
Posted May 12, 2001
33
Cape Fear (1991)
Though Scorsese doesn't always transcend the pulp in Cape Fear, watching him try allows us to share the exhilaration he experiences behind the camera.

4/4
An essential testament to the beauty and chops of the late River Phoenix...

Parker keeps going for the glitz. He may have shot The Commitments in Ireland, but his soul never left Hollywood.

4/5
So what if it's not perfect? It's magic.
Posted May 12, 2001
37
Dead Again (1991)
A miscalculation from a prodigious talent who has forgotten that you squeeze the life out of romance when you don't give it space to breathe.
Posted May 12, 2001

It's a beauty.

Barton Fink (1991)
Partly hilarious, partly horrific, totally mesmerizing.

3/4
The film is awash in all kinds of surprises that are too juicy to reveal.

Point Break (1991)
Bigelow can't keep the film from drowning in a sea of surf-speak. But without her, Point Break would be no more than an excuse to ogle pretty boys in wet suits.

Dying Young (1991)

Jungle Fever (1991)
Jungle Fever is not to be underestimated or ignored.

4.5/5
This wincingly funny, pertinent and heartbreaking road movie means to get under your skin, and it does.

Soapdish (1991)
It's a kick to see Field sending up her sweetheart image.
Posted May 12, 2001
46
Hudson Hawk (1991)
This unspeakably awful can make an audience a little crazy. You want to throw things, yell at the actors, beg them to stop.
Posted May 12, 2001

The Marrying Man isn't awful; it's something much less fun - conspicuously mediocre.

The Field (1990)
As overwrought as [My Left Foot] was understated.
