2.5/4
This is one of those untaxing time-killers where you spend a lot of time pondering which of its actress's changing hairstyles you like best.

Hanks has good "Thing" going.

3/4

The film's skewed stylistic flourishes capture enough of the original's spirit to provoke more respect than rejection.

Spice World (1998)
If what you really really want is a mindless hyperactive romp about a quintet of British songbirds with flippy hair, flirty costumes, monster shoes and minute talent, then enter Spice World.

Hackers (1995)
To its credit, Hackers recalls the pumped-up energy of Pump Up the Volume, as well as its casting prowess.

If the sight of half-naked, tattooed sailors firing cannons at each other shivers your timbers, climb aboard. Even passable pirate movies don't sail by every day.

To see Streep's prickly pear of an instructor blossom along with her struggling students is a rare joy.

Offers less screen rapture for your raptor than its predecessor did, unless your sole priority is dino-mighty effects.

1.5/4
If any movie proves that Mel Brooks' genius for skewering creaky genres has evaporated, it's this anemic attempt to draw new blood from low-flying vampire high jinks.

3.5/4
Though this terrifically cast movie may prove a tad too detached even for some members of its targeted audience, it covers remarkable ground in less than two hours.

A little deal, this movie is like a bottle rocket itself: a big bang for the money.

Ulee's Gold (1997)
An emotionally honest low-ebber that builds to a satisfying wrap-up.

This one looks like a sure bet for seven weeks (at least) of audience good fortune.

The Cell (2000)
The Cell makes the mistake of thinking that we're going to be captivated by a story that devotes most of its length to ugly hallucinations.

A delectable black comedy.

Now and then, a scene will hit you in the gut, such as when Streep restyles Keaton's chemo wig. When sentiment is this honest, it's not hard to swallow.

Dante's Peak (1997)

Voight proves again what a great character actor he's become by stealing the film as a country club-type defense lawyer with a julep tongue.

For action-starved audiences suffering through a summer drought of flying glass and fiery explosions, this cheese barge may hit the spot.

Set It Off (1996)

Overlong, overdone and overwrought, the narratively challenged Set It Off gets off on exploitation shock and social-conscience schlock in equal measure.

This misguided attempt at redoing The Omen for Touched by an Angel ... was also touched by a hack.

[This] predictably trite Tales isn't very scary.

3.5/4
The gap between touchy-feely and touching isn't easy to span, so credit judicious pruning on the one hand and a beefed-up script on the other for getting perhaps the best possible movie out of Robert James Waller's The Bridges of Madison County.

Art-house sentimentalists will likely go for Beautiful in a big way, but even those who aggressively resist manipulation can find a lot to admire.

Crumb (1995)
Crumb's sense of humor is his saving personal grace and the movie's insurance policy against total immersion into the morbid. But just so you know, Crumb fully earns its most revealing screen credit: 'David Lynch Presents.'

The comic blithely stumbles through the rude slapstick as if he thinks the movie's real lead will show at any second and allow him to sink gratefully into second-banana status again.

The movie might be worth seeing if you could find a theater that offers frequent-flier miles.

From bumbling infants to majestic adults, a flock hasn't been this charismatic onscreen since Hitchcock went bird-watching.

Fluke (1995)
As if banal platitudes about work-vs. -family aren't insufferable enough, there's a kicker gag involving Jackson that'll even have Mister Rogers begging for Pulp Fiction II.

Many times you will want to look away. But if you can stand it, you should pay close attention, partly to fully savor the clever twists and double-crosses in this intricately plotted film.

The result has a drawback common to such movies: too much screen time devoted to the conceit when anyone who has seen the coming-attractions trailer knows it already.
