    A somber, meditative, almost poetic film that delivers the horrors of bondage stripped down and head-on.

    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]

    The Book of Life bedazzles your eyes and buoys your spirits as it treads upon themes most commonly associated with the macabre universe of Tim Burton.

    Wisely, Kornbluth strives to put a human face on the situation, focusing on several families who represent hard-working citizens who are barely making ends meet with their shrinking paychecks—let alone building up any savings.

    Most of its pleasures come from the way it confounds expectations.

    When Michell is on his game, as he definitely is with Le Week-End, he unearths small, invaluable and even profound truths about the human condition that are often as inspiring as they are devastating.

    The bloody fingerprints of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers — among other violence-prone auteurs — are smeared all over his tidy and tautly-told Blue Ruin.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Dramatically moving and good-naturedly humorous, it transmits a sharp picture of humanity that inspires both awe and laughter.
    • 68 Metascore

    Engagingly offbeat. [4 December 1998, Life, p.13E]

    Clumsier hands could have planted this load of pungent sap and come up with sticky fingers. But the creators of this based-on-truth fable carefully cultivate the material so it comes off fresher than it sounds.

    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Artful it's not. But it's awfully affable. [26 March 1999, Life, p.9E]

    Blast feels positively timely if not downright positive about the human race's ability to endure. Forget radiation. Fraser and folks actually survive three decades-plus of Perry Como music. [12 February 1999, Life, p.8E]

    Guilty of inciting a near-laugh riot thanks to an irresistible leading lady whose comic instincts are as impeccable as her manicure.
    • 54 Metascore

    Most novel is Rounders' message that the real sin isn't giving into vice but denying your God-given talents and not risking it all.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    There's also a nice cheekiness to the material written by Robert Towne ("Chinatown"), and the usual cool high-tech toys are deployed.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The goofiest, giddiest and, yes, grooviest animated trip since Aladdin unbottled its genie.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The kind of quirky, character-driven comedy they don't make much anymore.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Atypical teen drama about opposites attracting that often (and happily) confounds expectations.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    There's much mumbo-jumbo about past lives and symbolic tattoos, but who cares when you can gaze at a sight as lovely as a dirigible floating in the night sky?
    • 54 Metascore

    Yearning for an old-fashioned movie with a well-told, uplifting message? Music of the Heart is playing your song.

    There's one reason to see Tim Burton's flawed, somewhat declawed but often amusing do-over of Planet of the Apes. The apes. What else?
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Has the refined taste to crib from classics like "Double Indemnity."

    Yummy yet empty.
    • 31 Metascore

    Far from redundant. That's because (Kirk) Wong deftly balances the outrageous stunts. [24 April 1998, p. 6E]

    When we first see Meryl Streep's happy homemaker in One True Thing, she's a domestic dinosaur circa late '80s, a regular mommy monster. [18 September 1998, p.3E]

    This twisted romance possesses the soul and edgy atmosphere of an independent film but not quite the conviction.

    DreamWorks' story of Moses raises the bar on the art of cartooning to the top of Mount Sinai and beyond.

    His (Myers) affection for the era and its gaudy, bawdy movies inject this bit of fluff with giddy energy.

    The best romantic comedies intoxicate like vintage champagne. Picture Perfect, on the other hand, is like a wine spritzer. Insubstantial and oversweet, it still refreshes as a midsummer brain cooler. [1 August 1997, p. 3D]
