title: Good Morning Vietnam 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: Touchstone Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Robin Williams, Forest Whitaker, Bruno Kirby, J.T. Walsh, Robert Wuhl film release year: 1987 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “Good Morning Vietnam” is interesting in that it is a movie about Vietnam that tackles the subject with both humor and honesty. This is why it was perfect for Robin Williams to showcase both his comedic talent and his at that point burgeoning dramatic acting abilities. We find ourselves in Saigon, 1965, when airman Adrian Cronauer (Robin Williams) arrives from Crete to take over the morning show on U.S. Armed Forces Radio Saigon. Cronauer immediately makes friends with his aide Ed Garlick (Forest Whitaker), but makes enemies of his superiors, the uptight Lt. Hauk (Bruno Kirby) and Sgt. Major Dickerson (J. T. Walsh).

It’s this deadpan yet goofball style that helped Carell garner attention from audiences and casting directors around the world. Before we knew it, Carell was cast not only in the American version of “The Office,” a show about working in a corporate environment, based on the British series of the same name, but also as the lead in the surprise smash hit “The 40 Year Old Virgin.” This film was one of ...

title: Rock 'N' Roll High School 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> Theatrical studio: New World DVD studio: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG Starring: P.J. Soles, Dey Young, Vincent Van Patten, Clint Howard, Mary Woronov, Paul Bartel, Don Steele, Loren Lester, Daniel Davies, Dick Miller, Grady Sutton Theatrical release: 1979 DVD release : 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-half Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Roger Corman has always been a trend-rider. In the late 1970s, when disco was at its peak, he wanted to make “Disco High,” an exploitation movie that would climax with the explosion of a high school. Rock fan Allan Arkush was working for Corman at the time, and he and Joe Dante, likewise a Corman employee, saw their chance. Arkush talked Corman out of “Disco High”—loving disco would never lead anyone to blow up a high school—and into “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School,” with Arkush as director. (As compensation, Dante was given “Piranha” to direct.)

title: The Muppet Movie (Kermit's 50th 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(); <br> studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring: Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Charles Durning, Austin Pendleton Theatrical release year: 1979 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh When you compare the obvious innocence of 1979’s “The Muppet Movie” to the much more recent “Team America: World Police” with its edgy puppet sex scenes, you realize right away just how far cinematic puppetry has come in the past twenty-plus years or so. There’s no puppet sex here, that’s for sure. There’s hardly any romance at all, in fact, unless you consider this movie’s brief moments of pig-frog attraction shared between Miss Piggy and Kermit. Instead, this is just your typical lily pads to riches showbiz story.

Who better to revive this franchise than modern-day Disney staple Lindsay Lohan? The film begins with Maggie Peyton’s (Lohan) graduation from college. Soon to embark on a trip to New York to begin working for ESPN, Lindsay is the youngest member of the Peyton racing family, which includes her father Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton) and her brother Ray Jr. (Breckin Meyer). Ray Jr. is now handling the driving duties, but due to his many struggles, Team Peyton is losing sponsors. It seems that Maggie was once a pretty good street racer but she has ...
