title: The Last Of The Mohicans 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: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, Russell Means, Eric Schweig, Jodhi May, Steven Waddington, Wes Studi, Maurice Roëves release year: 1992 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This beautiful, action-packed epic is the best movie version of James Fenimore Cooper's classic novel, even though Michael Mann and Christopher Crowe based their screenplay on that of Philip Dunne for the very good 1936 version. A lot of 1990s attitudes have been added, occasionally intrusively, but mostly the film is a refreshing and inventive blend of the modern and the old fashioned.

title: The Siege 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: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Denzel Washington, Annette Bening, Bruce Willis, Tony Shalhoub, Sami Bouajila, David Proval, Ahmed Ben Larby release year: 1998 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren If 'The Siege' were a little tighter, if the martial law scenes occurred earlier, this would have been a powerful, disturbing movie; it's still entertaining. It's not the action thriller that Fox tried to present it as, but instead is really a suspenseful thriller with a political flavor and at least a few serious points to make. It also features outstanding performances by Denzel Washington and Annette Bening; he's very good, she's even better.

title: Gladiator (DTS) <br> studio: DreamWorks Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Oliver Reed, Richard Harris, Derek Jacobi, David Hemmings, Djimon Honsou release year: 2000 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Giant jars of blazing oil slam into trees, inundating the warriors below with liquid fire. War machines fire arrows the size of spears, shishkabobbing men in fur cloaks. Gladiators dressed as minotaurs slam spiked balls into the heads of their opponents. Men on foot are forced to battle armor-clad charioteers. Tigers leap from beneath the floor of the Colosseum in ancient Rome and claw at our desperate hero. And 'Gladiator' is great fun between the astonishing action as well.

title: Mission Impossible 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();<br> studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Tom Cruise, Dougray Scott, Thandie Newton, Ving Rhames release year: 2000 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein All those who thought the first "Mission: Impossible" feature film had good effects but a boring, incomprehensible plot populated by non-characters, raise your hands. Okay, you can put your hands down now, along with any preconceived notions about the quality of "Mission: Impossible 2." This is a rare situation in which the original was an interminable muddle (albeit with good stunts), but the sequel actually rocks on its own terms.

title: Jurassic Park: The Lost World 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-13 starring: Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Vanessa Lee Chester, Arliss Howard, Pete Postlethwaite, Vince Vaughn, Richard Attenborough release year: 1997 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park' is a beautifully-engineered thrill ride guaranteed to make even the most jaded viewers shriek and giggle with terror and delight. 'Jurassic Park' had a smoother structure that built more steadily and carefully to a bang-up pair of climaxes, but 'The Lost World' has sequences that are at least as exciting as anything in the first movie. Jeff Goldblum returns as Ian Malcolm, but he's more subdued and serious than in the first film, which he almost stole from the dinos.
