title: Rain Man 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: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise, Valeria Golino release year: 1988 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein “Rain Man” comes with an impeccable pedigree. The 1988 drama, about a self-centered wheeler-dealer discovering his own humanity while bonding with his autistic brother, won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director and (of particular interest to AudioRevolution.com readers) Best Original Score. In other words, a lot of people thought at the time of its release, and very likely still think, this is a great movie.

To this day, the Turkish government stoutly denies that any such event too place, though survivors, including American missionary Clarence Ussher, told of their experiences. Over a million people were killed, in combat, in brutal executions, and on a forced march through what is now Syria. Atom Egoyan was born in Egyptian of Armenian parents, but was raised in British Columbia. As a director (and frequent writer), he worked his way up from episodes of TV series shot in Canada (it's hard to imagine this serious, thoughtful man directing a "Freddie's ...

Her family want her declared incompetent to stand trial, but when she breaks her lawyer's nose in the middle of a courtroom protesting that she wants her day in court, public defender Aaron Levinsky (Richard Dreyfuss) from legal aid is assigned her case. He has just four days to find out if Claudia is nuts. Over the course of the weekend and the two-day hearing, an ugly backstory is revealed which shows that while Claudia is troubled and angry, she is also a victim.

title: Anastasia 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: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Film Predates MPAA Ratings System starring: Ingrid Bergman, Yul Brynner, Helen Hayes, Akim Tamiroff release year: 1956 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein “Anastasia” is an example of ‘50s studio moviemaking at its solid best – the actors are dead serious, the costumes are gorgeous, the music is sweeping, the script is a triumph of craftsmanship over lifelikeness, it’s all a bit over the top, and somehow it works perfectly. Based on Marcelle Maurette’s play, “Anastasia” takes its premise from an actual historical incident. After Tsar Nicholas was deposed in the Russian Revolution, he and the Russian Royal Family were executed, but it has been rumored that one daughter, Anastasia, escaped. The film, scripted by Arthur Laurents from an adaptation by Guy Bolton, opens in 1928 Paris, where a trio of formerly royal Russians, now reduced to con artistry, having been living off the proceeds of getting their ...

O'Connor release year: 1998 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren When Dr. Pretorious finally convinces Henry Frankenstein to join him in bringing to life a female creature in James Whale's great Bride of Frankenstein, he offers a toast: "To new worlds of gods and monsters!" That wonderfully extravagant line, typical of Whale, provides the title for this fictional study of Whale in the last week of his life.
