    A grandiose cinematic invention, cleverly turning the present-day urban American world on its ear.

    Jude is knockout Hardy, filled with stormy visual poetry and accompanied by a gorgeous yet simple score.

    A filmic hug for Brooklyn.

    Consistently absorbing as the amazing Deneuve reveals, scene by scene, new facets of a fascinating character in a mercantile war that involves equal parts greed and vanity.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Coppola infuses her movie with a dreamy poetic tone, and deftly translates the essential metaphors of youth, sexuality and death without sacrificing an earthy humor.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Writer and first-time director Don McKellar, also one of the film's stars, makes the plot gimmick an inventive jumping-off point for an exploration of humanity in a state of quiet panic.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Full of that wonderful junky, clunky, huggable smartness that has made "Sesame Street'' an enduring phenomenon.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Fascinating, obnoxious and poignant.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Accomplishes the impossible, maybe the unimaginable -- it makes golf entertaining.
    • 62 Metascore

    Tequila Sunrise is a sharp-looking, tantalizing romantic thriller whose assets overcome a labored plot and several lapses into L.A. hipness that result in sheer inscrutability. [2 Dec 1988, p.E1]

    • 75 Peter Stack
    Saved throughout by its inviting atmosphere and richness of characters.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Score it big-time inane but a load of fun.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 63 Peter Stack
    For a big, floppy, silly movie that is in many ways the epitome of throwaway entertainment, Twins has its charms. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito make it seem they had so much fun making this flabby comedy that the fun becomes infectious.
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Peter Stack
    Look Who's Talking plays baby-picture cute almost beyond the limits of the tolerable, but it has enough spark and intelligence to be a very likable, occasionally riotous romantic comedy. [13 Oct 1989, p.E1]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 64 Metascore
    • 63 Peter Stack
    As Westerns go, Silverado delivers elaborate gun-fighting scenes, legions of galloping horses, stampeding cattle, a box canyon, covered wagons, tons of creaking leather and even a High Noonish duel. How it manages to run the gamut of cowboy movie elements without getting smart-alecky is intriguing. But on the important issues, like real character development, Silverado flakes apart. [10 Jul 1985, p.52]

    What more or less saves the movie is not the humor as much as it is the action. City Slickers II, lame as it is, keeps hobbling along in an appealing way through a Wild West landscape. [10 Jun3 1994, p.C3]

    Every hair is in place in writer-director Lawrence Kasdan's epic-length Wyatt Earp. What's missing is a heart. Yet if this large-scale western is a bore, at least it's a beautiful one. [24 Jun 1994, p.C1]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 27 Metascore

    Problem Child is a beautiful example of what junk entertainment can be with a smattering of brains behind it. While it hangs there as a monument to audience idiocy, it also lets you have a wallow in fun. You leave thinking there have been worse things on which to spend your time and money. [28 July 1990, p.C3]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    It's not a great film, but Event Horizon produces an intense sense of visual involvement. The hallucinatory, almost 3-D-like scenes stick in the mind.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Glitters, but it's not pure gold.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Has a certain slow, mechanical quality.

    It's not always clear what this film is driving at, but Shiota makes the weirdness visually arresting.

    Dark City grabs your eyeballs and squeezes.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    This slight, predictable comedy has appealing moments.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    The film's constrained style keeps the drama from reaching a full boil.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Curiously mellow for a John Carpenter thriller, Village of the Damned, a full-color, cornball special-effects remake of the 1960 sci-fi favorite, is a trip to a village of the darned tedious.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    It's a fizzle as as comedy. Still, the film has character.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Still, it's almost impossible to entirely wreck this great chestnut of Broadway and film. Thanks mostly to the terrific songs, the new version has transporting moments. [20 March 1999, Daily Notebook, p.B1]

    Among Chan devotees, it achieved cult status.

    Wicked fun with flickers of intelligence.
