Cute little coming of age comedy, 1 October 2001
6/10

Jennifer Connelly stars as a 15 year old girl who invites her platonic male friend to live in her house. Naturally rumors get started and and her boyfriend isn't too pleased either. A sweet movie that both parent and teen can watch and discuss together. Some brief partial nudity but nothing near what other "teen" movies have in them.

Connelly is gorgeous as always 6 of 10

A great film.., 8 September 2001
10/10

What else can be said about this masterpiece by Steven Speilberg about Oskar Schindler who did anything he could - including bribery - to employ jewish workers in his munition plants which resulted in saving over one thousand jews from the nazi slaughter. In a way it is troubling to say this movie is great and is a favorite because of the terrific horror of the subject but Speilberg makes it a poignant memorial for those who lived through the holocaust and a reminder to those who were too young to have remembered that these atrocities did happen and such hatred should never present itself again. 10 of 10

a bit overwrought but a good movie nonetheless, 8 September 2001
7/10

Chris O'Donnel stars as a prep school student who cares for a bitter, blind retired army colonel - overplayed by Al Pacino - who received an Oscar nevertheless- Gabrielle Anwar has only a small part in the film as Pacino's tango partner. A good film with an ending that will keep you watching.. 7 of 10

intense story of reporters adventures in civil war el salvador, 8 August 2001
7/10

James Woods stars as a photographer who faces the cruel and punishing effects of civil war and social injustice on the people of El Salvador. A visually stunning film from Oliver Stone that forces you to examine the U.S. role in other countries. 7 of 10

The Piano (1993)

not in perfect tune..., 17 June 2001
5/10

Holly Hunter plays a mute who expresses her thoughts and moods through her piano which she had brought over with her daughter. Arriving to a predetermined marriage to Stewart (Sam Neill) she engages in a sometimes cruel battle of passion and revenge with a fellow settler, played by Harvey Keitel.. WHile the cinematography and score are outstanding along with the acting, the story itself falls a bit flat as it progresses ever so slowly.

Holly Hunter does her own piano playing. 5 of 10

Platoon (1986)
A soldier's story.., 17 June 2001
10/10

Charlie Sheen plays a new soldier to Vietnam who experiences first hand the true horror of war as well as the senselessness of the war in Vietnam.. He is soon caught in the middle of a battle for his soul between Berenger and Dafoe.. A truly unforgettable film 10 of 10
