title: Jaws (25th Anniversary Edition) 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: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton, Carl Gottlieb, Chris Rebello, Jay Mello release year: 1975 film rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren An excellent argument can be made for 'Jaws' still being Steven Spielberg's best movie. It's the greatest action/monster movie after 'King Kong,' works perfectly well today, has no dated elements, and is free of Spielberg's later tendency toward sentimentality. It's one of the few films he's made that can actually be described as perfect. This is not to say that it is one of the greatest films ever made, because it really is nothing more than what it seems to be -- but it does everything it sets out to do spectacularly well.

title: Shanghai Knights 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: Touchstone Pictures MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson, Donnie Yen, Aidan Gillen, Fann Wong, Tom Fisher, Aaron Johnson, Kim Chan, Gemma Jones release year: 2003 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Jessica Amen After having seen “Shanghai Noon,” the first movie with the Jackie Chan/Owen Wilson duo, and loving every minute of it, I was excited to hear of a sequel. While “Shanghai Knights” is entertaining and side-stitchingly funny at times, I am sad to say that it does not compare to the first film.

title: Die Another Day: Two-Disc Special Edition 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: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Toby Stephens, Rosamund Pike release year: 2002 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein In its 13-minute pre-credits sequence, the opening titles and about 20 minutes more of what follows, “Die Another Day” seems as though it’s breaking with 40 years of James Bond tradition and doing something new with the franchise – and not just because we see a bullet come at us through that iconographic gun barrel at the beginning. We’re used to Bond in all his personas – Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby (once), Timothy Dalton and now Pierce Brosnan, who’s in his fourth gig as the character – being captured and tortured, but we don’t expect it to bleed through the opening credits or to go on for 14 months in story terms. Furthermore, 007 doesn’t effect his own escape, but is rather released into ...

title: Patriot Games (Special Collector's Edition) 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: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Harrison Ford, Anne Archer, Patrick Bergin, Sean Bean, Thora Birch, James Fox, James Earl Jones, Richard Harris release year: 1992 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein 1992’s “Patriot Games” is a sort of sideways-sequel to the submarine hit “The Hunt for Red October.” The film marked the big-screen return of novelist Tom Clancy’s hero, C.I.A. analyst Jack Ryan, but Jack came out of “Red” as Alec Baldwin and has become Harrison Ford for “Games.” Ford subsequently reprised the role in “Clear and Present Danger,” while most recently, Ben Affleck took it on in last year’s “The Sum of All Fears.” Jack is always the same character, but only “Games and “Danger” share much sense of continuity with one another.

Created by comics legend Stan Lee, the Hulk captured the imaginations of those young readers who dreamt of having the power to transform themselves into raging monsters that were adrenaline-driven engines of destruction.
