This movie intrigued me as a youngster. I liked VINCENT and BOB,the two
heroic robots,and always wanted one of my own. Maximillian is still today
one of the scariest villain robots I've ever seen,besides the Terminator.
There are several problems with the film,such as our heroes trying to make
their way to the escape ship near the end. They are subjected to deep
space,without space suits,all this happening dangerously close to a black
hole! Talk about ridiculous! But it's fun to watch,and makes one think
what is truly beyond a black hole...
Two out of Four stars
This is one movie for anybody who has worked,or is currently working,in
corporate America. Deep down,we all have this urge to rebel and seek
redemption for the hard work we do,with little to no reward. Mike Judge
illustrates this concept extremely well. Watch for Milton the mumbler...he
is hilarious! I also liked Gary Cole's Bill Lumberg character...the perfect
example of a boss who couldn't care less about his employees. Best scene in
the film...our heroes finally get their revenge on the uncooperative copy
Three out of Four stars
This movie proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jim Carrey can be taken
seriously as a dramatic actor. I was very disappointed that he was snubbed
by the Academy Awards for this performance. Ed Harris also performed
extremely well,for his portrayal of "Truman Show" creator Christof. What is
so captivating is that this movie is so original,and so well conceived.
Peter Weir is magical with his direction. An American masterpiece,The Truman
Show should not be missed by anybody. It's funny,touching,and simply

What I wouldn't do to get my hands on that idiotic perverted pre-teen
Telly,as he goes around having unprotected sex with young girls,all the
while being HIV positive and not even bothering to get himself tested. This
film is depressing to watch,seeing these kids drink,smoking weed,and having
unsafe sex. Hopefully,parents can watch this film,then have one hell of a
serious talk with their children about the dangers of unprotected sex and
drug use. I know I will,when the time comes.
** 1/2 out of ****
This sequel to Mortal Kombat involves a bunch of video-game heroes trying
save the Earth from the clutches of bad guy Shao Khan. Special effects are
downright terrible,the acting is,well,I wouldn't even call it acting,and
it's as if the film is trying to throw too much at you at one time. If you
must watch this movie,make sure it's on television,where you won't waste
your money on a rental. This movie is just abysmal.
1/2 of a star out of **** (I think I'm being too nice there)
This first Star Trek film drags on longer than it should. Too many shots of
the refitted Enterprise,and while they look nice and pretty,too many
effects are shown. The crew seems lifeless,and unfortunately,so does this
film. The sets are unattractive;the bridge looks dull and boring. It really
doesn't contain the 'magic' that the Original Series brought to television.
Followed,fortunately,by the brilliant "Wrath of Khan".

I don't know why Joel Schumacher twisted the Batman franchise the way he did
with this joke of a sequel. I will never comprehend,nor accept,the fact that
Batman,a dark,forboding symbol of vengeful justice,carries a "Batman" credit
card. Robin is reduced to a whiny brat who wants his own bird-signal,and
Mr.Freeze spouts more one-liners about cold and things frozen than the whole
Adam West series did altogether. Batgirl was introduced very poorly,and
Poison Ivy,albeit seductive,is just not a good villainess. Mr.
Schumacher,how could you? HOW?
*1/2 out of ****
The fourth installment in the Superman series has our hero swearing to rid
the earth of all nuclear weaponry. The special effects are downright
there are obvious problems,such as when Nuclear Man takes Lacy Warfield
outer space,for one cannot breathe in outer space,and would also be frozen
to death almost instantly. A very weak story in what was originally a good
series. Stick with Superman I and II. Leave the rest alone.

First decent Star Trek film featuring the cast of "The Next Generation"
finds Picard and crew going back in time to prevent the Borg from changing
history. Hardcore fans of Trek will find numerous continuity problems,and
the script is somewhat weak. The Borg look absolutely terrifying,and the
Borg Queen is played seductively well by Alice Krige. Features a
good,sweeping score by Jerry Goldsmith,and strong performances by Stewart
and Brent Spiner. Followed by the weak "Insurrection".
*** out of ****
Possible peace between the Klingons and the Federation,as well as a brutal
murder of a Klingon chancellor and the framing of Kirk and Dr.McCoy
afterward,highlight this adventure. Strong performances by most of the
cast,especially Plummer as Shakespeare-quoting Klingon bad guy Chang.
Sadly,this is DeForrest Kelley's(McCoy) final appearance in a Star Trek
film. However,it serves as a fitting end to a legendary crew. Followed by
the very weak "Generations".
