    It's so rare to be swept away by a presentation of this magnitude. By all means, go.

    Love & Mercy allows you to understand how the lifelong auditory hallucination that haunted Wilson also fueled his creativity. Sometimes, from madness, great art can emerge.

    From its explosive opening sequence at a terrorist arms bazaar on the Russian border to a knockout climax on a stealth ship on the South China seas, Tomorrow Never Dies delivers what 007 aficionados demand: dynamite action, sharp one-liners and edgy style. [19 Dec 1997, p.4G]

    Quibbles aside, Ultimate X zips by speedily and is rad fun for sports fans and sedentary folks alike.

    Amped to the max, with firepower and fisticuffs flying, this is Bond as we have come to know him in the post-Roger Moore years: bigger, badder, better.

    If you haven't caught Lightning on PBS already, find a theater with a good sound system, sit back and be grateful the music endures.

    Beastly, for all its potential pitfalls, works better than it has any right to. Credit Barnz, who keeps his young characters contemporary in a world of text messaging and status updates and yet also gives them depth.

    Quibbles aside, Babe: Pig in the City recaptures the verbal wit and plentiful heart that made the first film so special. [25 Nov 1998, p.2E]

    Social concerns aside, Mighty Joe Young is a Disney film at heart, and director Ron Underwood keeps the emphasis on crisp action sequences, setting up a thrilling chase down Hollywood Boulevard and a finish at the park that is almost guaranteed to turn eyes misty. [25 Dec 1998, p.11G]

    If anyone tries to tell you how this one ends, blast 'em with a phaser. Set on stun, of course.

    The technically well-made movie simply can't replicate the live experience of a Cirque show, and at just over 90 minutes, Worlds Away still feels long.

    Amiable, sporadically amusing farce.

    Great messages, of course. But Glee: 3D is not good enough, it's not smart enough, and doggone it, well, you get the gist.
