title: Jurassic Park (DTS) 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: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Samuel L. Jackson, Wayne Knight, Martin Ferrero release year: 1993 film rating: Four and a Half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Whatever you think of Steven Spielberg as a director, there's no doubt that he generally has his finger right on the pulse of the public. For better or worse, he's responsible for more audience-jazzing blockbusters than any other director in movie history, and few have busted blocks more thrillingly than his 1993 smash hit, "Jurassic Park." It led to the Spielberg-directed sequel, "The Lost World: Jurassic Park II," as well as to the merely Spielberg-produced "Jurassic Park III," romping through your local theaters in the summer of 2001.

title: Supergirl studio: Anchor Bay Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Helen Slater, Faye Dunaway, Peter O'Toole, Peter Cook, Brenda Vaccaro, Maureen Teefy, Hart Bochner, Simon Ward, Mia Farrow release year: 1984 film rating: One-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This two-disc set is one of Anchor Bay's most elaborate productions to date, and doesn't even include the American cut of the film. One disc has the 124-minute "international version," with commentary by director Jeannot Szwarc; the other has the original director's cut, running 138 minutes, which has never before been released to the public. There are also extensive storyboards, stills, production sketches, trailers and other material. All of this in service of a terrible movie.

title: Lethal Weapon (Director's Cut) 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: Unrated starring: Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Gary Busey release year: 1987 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein For those who can’t remember, the title of ‘Lethal Weapon’ does not refer to a gun, a bomb or a motor vehicle. It also didn’t – at the time of its 1987 original theatrical release - refer to the three official sequels that followed, let alone the copycat buddy-action genre flicks that sprang up in its wake.

title: Conan The Barbarian 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: R starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Earl Jones, Sandahl Bergman, Gerry Lopez, Max von Sydow, Mako, Ben Davidson, Valerie Quennessen release year: 1982 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'Conan the Barbarian' rouses all kinds of contradictory responses and comments. At once irritating and entertaining, it's also sophisticated and childish, imaginative and prosaic, exciting and ponderous, stunning and forgettable. It's hard to resist the idea that it would have been better if the Robert E. Howard's ideas had been adhered to more faithfully -- but then would the film have been the hit it was? Would John Milius have agreed to direct it?

title: The Great Locomotive Chase 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Fess Parker, Jeffrey Hunter, John Lupton, Jeff York, Eddie Firestone, Kenneth Tobey, Don Megowan, Harry Carey, Jr., Slim Pickens release year: 1956 film rating: Three-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The first Medals of Honor, granted by Congress, were given on March 25, 1863 to the six military survivors of what became known as "Andrews' Raid." 'The Great Locomotive Chase' is a handsomely-produced, essentially authentic retelling of that Civil War adventure. Embellishments have been kept to a minimum so that this is, overall, one of the most historically accurate movies ever made in Hollywood. It's a satisfying, engrossing movie; it's not a classic, but it's a solid example of craftsmanship. This DVD has almost no extras, but does the film in both the letterboxed and pan-and-scanned versions. Since it was very ably filmed by Charles Boyle in CinemaScope, the letterboxed version is definitely to be preferred.
