    These gun-crazy, lust-loopy kids on the run are irresistible in the best crime rush since “GoodFellas.” [10 Sept 1993]

    This is entertainment worth thumping your chest over. [18 June 1999, Life, p.2E]

    What's most amazing is the finely nuanced performances these bits and bytes deliver.

    A movie with this kind of haunting power comes along only once every decade or so. [20 February 1991, Life, p.11D]

    Pacino cans the showboating bluster and gives a gently nuanced portrait of a simple man in decline.

    A riotous and wee bit PG-racy computer-animated family fable, is the most thoroughly enjoyable cartoon feature since "Toy Story" burst out of its box.

    The snappy sci-fi hoot Men in Black...is a kind of "Independence Day" for smart people.

    Director Gillian Armstrong takes the delicate snow globe that is Little Women and gives it a bold new shake. [21 Dec 1994]

    There is that feeling you get inside when a movie suddenly starts to push your every button, creating an emotional connection that goes beyond pure reason and mere emotion. It elevates your mood to such a point that you wish you could hug the screen out of sheer joy and recognition. That is what Gloria did to me.

    Everything in The Lego Movie is, indeed, awesome.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Its deadpan wit, ingenious fairy-tale premise and superbly accomplished cast will leave you feeling positively oxygenated.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Still a one-of-a-kind mind-blower.
    • 74 Metascore

    Epic in nearly every way, The Hurricane has the power to blow you away.
    • 74 Metascore

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a purer expression of rapture in a film this year than the one that opens Billy Elliot.
    • 73 Metascore

    Just be glad that Hanks and Zemeckis toiled mightily to pull off at least two-thirds of a remarkable achievement.

    Chances are, the more you love classic cinema, the more you will find Gods is your cup of tea.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Such pure, naked joy is utterly contagious.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    A gut-busting blast of tasteless tomfoolery.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    When it comes to eloquently telling it like it is, Election puts the nation's political pundits to shame.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Retains the power to turn heads -- and stomachs.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    The nonstop amusing mockumentary Waiting for Guffman does to small-town acting troupes what "This Is Spinal Tap did to heavy-metal bands."
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    A little slapstick, a little action, rich characters and a whopping serving of wit. All baked to near-perfection.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    The suspense becomes so unbearable that it's easy to overlook questions about whether anyone in such circumstances would continue filming.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Babe, a live-action fable about a valiant pig who conquers prejudice like a barnyard Jackie Robinson, is in a league of its own when it comes to enchantment.

    What remains is a great Vangelis score, astonishing production design, Hauer's career role -- and a movie that deserves its cult reputation despite an unloving heart. [11 Sept 1992]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    It's a clever, multitiered affair built around the title rituals, frosted with delicious characterizations and tasty repartee. [11 March 1994, Life, p.4D]
    • 63 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Sheer power, moral and otherwise. It possesses a massively majestic hero. [10 Dec 1997, p.D1]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 88 Susan Wloszczyna
    Director Stephen Herek does an admirable balancing job, though the movie slows whenever the animals solo onscreen. [27 Nov 1996 Pg.01.D]
    • 80 Metascore

    Instead of ladling on the Scorsese sauce, Robert De Niro's Bronx accent is on semisweet nostalgia. He presents a domestic drama spiced with humor about a boy torn between his working-stiff dad (De Niro in fine regular-fella mode) and Chazz Palminteri's easy-money ways. De Niro doesn't let arty camera angles sub for good storytelling. And he draws memorable performances from two amazing young, new actors. [01 Oct 1993, p. 8D]

    Star Trek was never about gizmos, but about relationships - both among its crew members and with its audience. Star Trek VI more than upholds the tradition, making it a satisfying send-off for a mighty ship of foils. [6 Dec. 1991, p.1D]
