title: Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Vista Series) 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: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Bob Hoskins, Charles Fleischer, Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Cassidy, Kathleen Turner release year: 1988 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" is not just an entertaining movie, it's a technical marvel. I was a teenager when I first saw “Roger Rabbit” in a theatre, and didn't have the first clue how extraordinary on every level this picture was. At the time, I didn't really appreciate the melding of hardboiled detective film noir with zany Tex Avery-style animation. I didn't quite understand how the hand-drawn animation of Hollywood's golden age was on the verge of extinction, and how the technical mastery and polish of the Disney studio compared with the wacky charismatic characters of Warner Bros. Looney Tunes, or how rare it would be to see both styles of animation melded so seamlessly, adding dozens of other characters from 1940s ...

Last year, his palate-cleanser was this comedy-drama about a couple of days in the lives of a group of Hollywood types. It's highly episodic, jumping from one small bunch of characters to another, heading for the suicide of one of them.

title: Barbershop 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: MGM Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Ice Cube, Anthony Anderson, Sean Patrick Thomas, Eve, Troy Garity, Michael Ealy, Leonard Earl Howze, Keith David, Cedric the Entertainer, Jazsmin Lewis release year: 2002 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren One of the warmest, funniest comedies of 2002, "Barbershop" is downright endearing, with such a terrific premise that it's surprising it's never been used before: a "work-place" story over the course of one day set in a barbershop done as an ensemble piece. It's a black barbershop in a somewhat rundown (but not trashed) area of Chicago, on the South side. The cast is all black, except for one young white barber (Troy Garity), who has embraced hip hop/rap black way of life, and made it his own. (Eminem anyone?) The central character is Calvin (Ice Cube), a dreamer who inherited the shop from his late father two years ago. He's always thinking of get-rich-quick schemes, which rarely pan out. ...

title: Fast Times At Ridgemont High 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: Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer, Phoebe Cates, Ray Walston, Vincent Schiavelli, Forest Whitaker, Kelli Maroney, Eric Stoltz, Anthony Edwards, Nicolas Coppola (Cage) release year: 1982 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This movie, regarded as almost terminally hip when it was first released, at first glance now looks surprisingly dated and remote, like footage from an alternate universe. But once you get into it, the movie is still fresh and lively, and the observations are still valid. It's often very funny, and just as often quite serious, particularly regarding the sexual adventures of 15-year-old Stacy Hamilton (Jennifer Jason Leigh).

title: Austin Powers in Goldmemeber 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 Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Mike Myers, Beyonce Knowles, Seth Green, Michael York, Robert Wagner, Mindy Sterling, Verne Troyer, Michael Caine, Fred Savage release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom The third installment of the Austin Powers series packs as much punch and audacity as the first two movies in the franchise. A viewer looking for marvelous wit and off-beat humor, not to mention outlandish plot twists, dance numbers, and costumes, need go no farther than this tip of the hat to James Bond and other spy movies featuring babes, cars, gadgets, and explosive action. However, fans of the James Bond 007 films, if they don’t already know, might discover that Austin Powers, Great Britain’s sexiest and grooviest superspy, might not be their cup of tea. But the energy, the slapstick routines, and the pure homage to the spy films can’t be denied. If James Bond had ...
