title: Heathers 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: Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, Shannen Doherty, Lisanne Falk, Penelope Milford release year: 1989 film rating: Three and a half stars sound/picture: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren "Heathers" wowed critics and surprised audiences; it was such a fresh idea for its time that it has become a kind of touchstone by which satiric teen comedies have invariably been measured in the ten years since it was released. But like many "minor classics," it has more flaws than its reputation suggests -- even though it wasn't until this year that it was topped in its field.

title: True Stories 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 starring: John Goodman, David Byrne, Annie McEnroe, Swoosie Kurtz release year: 1986 film rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein There are certain films that shouldn’t be reviewed by particular reviewers. Case in point: this reviewer and ‘True Stories,’ director/co-writer David Byrne’s comedy with music. To quote another writer: "For those who like this sort of thing, it’s the sort of thing they will like." For the rest of us, it is a well-made, acoustically adept but relentlessly self-indulgent exercise in the making of patronizing vignettes.

title: The Man With Two Brains 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: R starring: Steve Martin, Kathleen Turner, David Warner release year: 1983 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘The Man With Two Brains’ probably played funnier in its original 1983 release, when female lead Kathleen Turner’s vamp turn in ‘Body Heat’ was still fresh in the public consciousness. The plot is a takeoff on all those old science-fiction/horror movies about mad scientists who keep disembodied brains alive in their basements, just waiting for the right body to come along and play unwilling host.

title: Joe's Apartment 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 Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jerry O’Connell, Megan Ward, Robert Vaughn release year: 1996 film rating: Two and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein This much can be said for ‘Joe’s Apartment’: it’s different. How different? Name another movie that focuses on singing cockroaches. No fair citing ‘Antz’ and ‘A Bug’s Life’: those are ants, ladybugs, caterpillars and grasshoppers. No, the stars of ‘Joe’s Apartment’ are the same little critters that few humans have anything kind to say about.

title: The Court Jester 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 MPAA rating: NR starring: Danny Kaye, Glynis Johns, Basil Rathbone, Angela Lansbury, Cecil Parker, Mildred Natwick release year: 1956 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren One of the greatest things about home video is that it has (too gradually) opened the history of movies to modern-day audiences. It's hard to remember that in the past, the only way to see older films was to try to catch them on in a commercial-riddled, late-night TV showing. Now you can rent or buy most major movies, at least since the 1940s or so, as well as minor movies from all around the world.
