Object Of My Affection, The (1998)
The intention is for its gay representation to be inclusive and equal to a straight lifestyle. It touches upon authentic concerns but its reality is askew. The main two keep chugging the charm and Allison Janney creates stillness when she exits a shot. It's a gay film made mostly to satiate a hetero audience. 20-May-2019
Hand That Rocks The Cradle, The (1992)
A two-sided coin that elaborates on the ramifications of "me too."DeMornay manifests vindictive bitchiness by thread, tone and lust. Sciorra deadlocks maternal credence and Moore is the flippant friend you can't trust but should. Girl fight to the the end is its bang. 29-Nov-2018
Lost World, The: Jurassic Park (1997)
Beautiful dino and Spielberg rampage. 11-Oct-2018
Urban Legend (1998)
Some clever kills is what satiates the legend but the script has trouble lining up the backstories that go with them. 25-Sep-2018
It affirms its origin and endears us with embellishments. It debates life assumptions and Casper is illuminated with a thoughtful backstory. It's magic with gumption. 27-Aug-2018
Escape From L.A. (1996)
Russell's suit is glove-fit but the macho bluster keeps it stupid. 17-Jul-2018
Apollo 13 (1995)
Ron Howard reveres and engages us in science. Tom Hanks heads the daddy brave brigade and Kathleen Quinlan commands the tormented family ensemble. 08-Jul-2018
Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
When a director has an improbable script he assigns an adept talent that automatically enumerates sweetness and delight. It's all about Robin and we succumb. 05-Jul-2018
Wedding Banquet, The (1993)
Ang Lee introduces us to an Asian culture bountiful in beauty, tradition, family, support and sustenance. Gay pretense is consequential as much a lifestyle and Lee's straight irony keeps it bathed in honesty. 09-Jun-2018
Indian in the Cupboard (1995)
The effects hold up better than the story. Lonely boy gets fantastical gift that brings toys to life and extols him godlike qualities and judgment.
I don't understand how casting dominion over an American Indian's life progresses the man or the child. The life-toys don't get a life ending which asserts that they were only playthings for an unseen boy.
The story asks us to dispense with logic more than we're capable. 14-May-2018
Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997)
Party City Live. 23-Apr-2018
Cruel Intentions (1999)
If these youngsters existed today they would have a great following. They are bored beautiful richies with nothing better to do than to cause havoc amongst their weaker brethren. Sarah is sneaky villifier, Ryan Phillippe is formidable twink and Blair and Witherspoon are radiant freshness. Fun pulp. 20-Mar-2018
James & the Giant Peach (1996)
Throwback art is where all the fun is at. 10-Jan-2018
Alien Resurrection (1997)
It continues, finds a genuine gimmick to bring Ripley back and includes all the elements that made the mythology infamous, yet, at every turn, I felt something missing.
The new incarnation of Ripley is kickass monster of little heart and the movie needed the fire the original stirred.
There are sound action sequences, but the pace could have used a kick and the new alien was laughably sorry. 16-Oct-2017
Mummy, The (1999)
The humor has dried, the action is cluttered and the mummy, in every iteration, is heated. The corn pops but just once. 01-Oct-2017
