Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review six new movies. A mild split on the disaster picture, Deep Impact (1998). Siskel gives it a marginal thumbs up for occasionally rising above its standard plot, Ebert a marginal thumbs down for not rising above it often enough. Two thumbs down for the witless Woo (1998), a movie about black culture that jerks between unfunny slapstick and unconvincing tenderness. Two thumbs up for the smart, sharply observed comedy, Clockwatchers (1997), about female office temps. Two thumbs down for the soppy, sappy Little Men (1998), based on Louisa May Alcott's sequel to "Little Women". Ebert predicts it will bore its intended audience. Two thumbs up for the lush and passionate Artemisia (1997) about a female artist in 17th century Italy. Two thumbs up for "In Our Own Hands", a fascinating documentary about Jewish soldiers who fought the Nazis. Written by J. Spurlin
