title: Kill Bill Volume 2 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Uma Thurman, David Carradine, Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, Gordon Liu, Michael Parks release year: 2004 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas An uneven and ultimately disappointing conclusion to what began in “Kill Bill Volume 1,” “Volume 2” does have its brilliant moments and is worth the trouble if you’ve already seen “Volume 1.” As a quick recap, the film stars Uma Thurman as the Bride, a reformed member of an assassin squad led by Bill (David Carradine). After leaving the Bride for dead at her own wedding, the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad scatter to do their own things until the fully recovered and retrained Bride comes after them.

title: Hidalgo function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();<br> studio: Buena Vista Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Viggo Mortensen, Omar Sharif, Said Taghmaoui theatrical release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas Coming off his success as Aragorn in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Viggo Mortensen tackles his first major solo studio outing with the fact-based “Hidalgo” from director Joe Johnston. Based on the stories of famed 19th-century endurance horse racer Frank T. Hopkins (there is some question as to the truth of the tales), the film is a rousing if not completely effective family adventure.

title: Robocop Trilogy   studio: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: “Robocop” Unrated (Theatrical Release R); “Robocop 2” R; “Robocop 3” PG-13 starring: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Robert John Burke, Ronny Cox, Miguel Ferrer, Tom Noonan theatrical release year: 1987, 1990, 1992 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: “Robocop” Four Stars; “Robocop 2” Three Stars; “Robocop 3” Two-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: “Robocop” Four Stars; “Robocop 2” and “Robocop 3” Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein 1987’s “Robocop” has become such an influential science-fiction film – the word “robocop” has even entered common slang to denote a type of police officer on violent autopilot – that it’s hard to remember that once upon a time, the movie sounded like it might be a bad idea. Even recalling “Robocop’s” success, it’s possible to hazily remember it as emblematic of its time.

title: The Perfect Storm function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();<br> studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, John C. Reilly, Diane Lane, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, William Fichtner release year: 2000 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you’ve seen even the poster art for ‘The Perfect Storm,’ you have some idea of where this movie is heading. The shot of a fishing boat being stood vertically on end by a 100-foot-wave is even more dramatic in action – if you just can’t wait to see it, the actual shot is in Chapter 34 – than it is as a still life. The filmmakers’ recreation of what was dubbed "the storm of the century" when it occurred in reality is quite literally awe-inspiring, while providing a service. Most viewers of the film will come away feeling that they now know what it’s like to be out in the worst weather imaginable and therefore don’t have to endanger themselves by searching out ...

title: Twister function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Jami Gertz, Cary Elwes, Lois Smith, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alan Ruck, Sean Whalen, Zach Grenier release year: 1996 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren TWISTER is the only theatrical feature so far to center on tornadoes and their terrifying, destructive power, although of course they do turn up as punctuation in other movies, notably THE WIZARD OF OZ (which gets referenced here). The two main reasons for the lack of major tornado movies are that the special effects are difficult, and that a story centering on tornadoes isn't exactly obvious.
