title: Piranha 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: New Horizons Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Bradford Dillman, Heather Menzies, Kevin McCarthy, Keenan Wynn, Dick Miller, Barbara Steele, Belinda Balaski, Bruce Gordon release year: 1978 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren PIRANHA has been packaged as one of the series of "Roger Corman Classics" from New Horizons Home Video, and rates the designation of "classic" far more than some other titles in the series (such as the original HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP). This brassy, fast-paced movie is one of the best Corman's company made after 1972 or so, possibly the best. In the 1960s, Corman sponsored the early efforts of any number of promising young actors and directors, but in the last twenty years, very few actors and directors have emerged from the Corman stable.

title: Ferris Bueller's Day Off 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: Paramount MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Matthew Broderick, Jeffrey Jones, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jennifer Grey, Edie McClurg, Cindy Pickett, Lyman Ward, Charlie Sheen. release year: 1986 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren For a while in the 1980s, it seemed as though John Hughes had a direct line to the hearts and souls of teenagers (and early-20s types) around the world. Hughes began as an advertising copywriter, but turned out to have a real proclivity for writing movies that amused the largest section of the ticket-buying audience. MR. MOM was a smash hit, but what really put Hughes over was the string of teen-oriented comedies that began with SIXTEEN CANDLES in 1984.

title: Election 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: Paramount Home Video starring: Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon release year: 1999 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The notion of setting a political satire squarely in the middle of a high school student body campaign fuels ‘Election,’ a comedy that is clever and observant, yet uncomfortably cold and condescending. Director Alexander Payne and his co-writer Jim Taylor have adapted Tom Perrotta’s novel into a film that is always perceptive and often funny, but so contemptuous of its characters that it’s difficult to actually enjoy.

title: Prizzi's Honor 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Jack Nicholson, Kathleen Turner, Anjelica Huston, William Hickey, John Randolph, Lee Richardson, Robert Loggia. release year: 1985 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren One of the highlights of the later career of director John Huston, Prizzi's Honor won a supporting actress Oscar for his daughter Anjelica, cast as Maerose Prizzi, a calculating, vengeful Mafia princess who knows what she wants and goes after it. The movie received several other Oscar nominations as well, including for Jack Nicholson as best actor, Huston himself as director, adapted screenplay for Janet Roach and Richard Condon (from his own novel), William Hickey as best supporting actor, and for Best Picture. It also garnered nominations (and some wins) from many other organizations that present them.

title: Take The Money And Run 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Woody Allen, Janet Margolin, Marcel Hillaire, Jacqueline Hyde, Henry Leff, Ethel Sokolow, Louise Lasser release year: 1969 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren In the 1960s, Woody Allen's ambitions grew; no longer content to be a gag writer for other comics, or even a stand-up comedian himself (though he was very successful at both), he wanted to cross over into writing movies. His play Don't Drink the Water had been successful, after all. He appeared in and wrote What's New Pussycat (1965), revised a Japanese movie into What's Up, Tiger Lily? (1966), directing the additional scenes himself, and acted in the awesomely troubled Casino Royale. It was on the latter film that he became determined not to allow troublesome producers or meddlesome stars to ruin his scripts, so he turned director himself.
