title: Dance With The Devil 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: A-Pix Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Rosie Perez, Javier Bardem, Aimee Graham, Harley Cross, James Gandolfini release year: 1999 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘Dance With the Devil’ is a true exploitation movie, chock-full of sex, blood and death, with a little maybe/maybe-not evil magic thrown in to broaden its genre credentials. Director Alex De La Iglesia directs in pedal-to-the-metal style from a script he shares credit on with Barry Gifford, who authored the book ‘59 & Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango’ on which the film is based (‘Perdita Durango’ is the alternate title), Jorge Guerricachevarria and David Trueba.

Dutton, F. Murray Abraham release year: 1994 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Although ‘Surviving the Game’ at first glance seems to be a fairly straightforward, down-and-dirty actioner, it turns out to have a lot on its mind. Director Ernest Dickerson and writer Eric Bernt manage to make work up some thought-worthy social analogies without impeding the rocket-speed action.

Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren, River Phoenix, Conrad Roberts, Andre Gregory, Martha Plimpton, Dick O'Neill, Jadrien Steele. release year: 1986 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Harrison Ford's character in THE MOSQUITO COAST is aptly described by another character in the movie as "The worst kind of a pain in the neck -- a know-it-all who's sometimes right." The movie depicts what happens when he is spectacularly wrong.

title: Deep Blue Sea 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 Bros. Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Thomas Jane, Saffron Burrows, Samuel L. Jackson, Jacqueline McKenzie, Michael Rapaport, Stellan Skarsgard, LL Cool J release year: 1999 film rating: Three and a half stars sound/picture: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Movie shark technology has improved a hell of a lot since JAWS; most of the time the three intelligent, evil sharks menacing the cast in DEEP BLUE SEA are ultra-realistic. It's too bad that shark movie scripts have gotten worse. While DEEP BLUE SEA is generally entertaining and the action scenes are top notch -- director Renny Harlin is generally good at this -- the screenplay, by Duncan Kennedy and Donna & Wayne Powers, is riddled with lousy dialog, thin characters and clichés. The story itself -- well, "contrived" is not nearly strong enough a word to describe the setup. It's just a way of creating a hybrid of JAWS and ALIEN. The ...

title: Dangerous Ground 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: New Line Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Ice Cube, Elizabeth Hurley, Ving Rhames, Sechaba Morojele, Eric 'Waku' Miyeni, Roslyn Morapedi release year: 1997 film rating: Two stars reviewed by: Bill Warren If the Internet Movie Database is accurate, this movie was completed in 1997, but not released in the U.S. until 1999. The delay is, unfortunately, understandable; it's a plodding, routine crime film set in contemporary South Africa. Ice Cube stars and was one of the executive producers. Evidently, the movie was at least partially intended to be an attack on the drug trafficking in South Africa that, the movie says, greatly increased following the end of apartheid. Good intentions, though, don't always add up to good entertainment.
