Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

In 1987, Superman returned to the big screen after a four-year absence. The fanfare was more muted than it had been for any of the previous three entries into the franchise, including the critically lambasted and fan-unfriendly Superman III, which...

Antz

In the Magic Kingdom, they must be getting nervous. For years, Disney has had a death grip on the animated market, but, as we enter the latter years of the 1990s, the corporation that gave us Bambi and Snow White is finding their dominance cha...

Unforgiven

Superman

To date, the 1978 theatrical version of Superman remains the only motion picture based on a comic book to have a lush, epic feel. Developed by Godfather scribe Mario Puzo with reverence for the venerable superhero, Superman pays homage to the lege...

Bonnie and Clyde

In America, we love our gangsters. Even today, nothing captures our attention like a good real-life crime story. The O.J. Simpson saga dominated the news for over a year, and O.J. has none of the allure ascribed to some of the "greats." More Amer...

Hoosiers

Many will claim that Hoosiers is the best sports movie ever made. For me, it's in third place, trailing only The Natural and Rocky. Some will argue that Hoosiers deserves "extra credit" because it is based on a true story - how the small-town Mil...

Crimson Tide

Crimson Tide is a white-knuckler with a cop-out ending. It's a thrill-a-minute ride that concludes with a whimper, like a roller-coaster that has all the drops and twists early. Make no mistake, this is a good source of early summer fun, but with...

Heist, The

Since the death of Alfred Hitchcock, many filmmakers have vied to succeed the Master of Suspense. With apologies to rip-off artist Brian De Palma, my vote goes to David Mamet, whose films House of Games and The Spanish Prisoner can stand alongside ...
