title: One Hour Photo 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: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Robin Williams, Connie Nielsen, Michael Vartan, Dylan Smith, Gary Cole, Eriq La Salle, Paul Hansen Kim, Erin Daniels release year: 2002 film rating: Four and a half stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren "One Hour Photo" is an impressive film, both for the directorial & writer debut of Mark Romanek (from rock videos), and for Robin Williams' near-perfect performance as a quiet, repressed one-hour photo clerk. Furthermore, for the first time, Williams, with Romanek, provides a commentary track for one of his movies -- and he's subdued, non-comic throughout the interesting, low-key track.

title: Signs 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix, Cherry Jones, Rory Culkin, Abigail Brelin release year: 2002 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Something that seemed apparent while watching “Signs” in the theatre is even more evident in the DVD version – this may be the quietest major studio alien invasion movie ever made. Sure, “Twilight Zone” used to do things like this all the time – but the average budget of a “Twilight Zone” episode was in the neighborhood of $1.95. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan may have made the first star-powered, big-budget science-fiction/horror film to wage no-tech warfare in a confined space.

title: The Sum Of All Fears 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: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, James Cromwell, Liev Schreiber, Ciarán Hinds, Bridget Moynahan, Alan Bates, Colm Feore release year: 2002 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea "The Sum of All Fears" re-boots the Jack Ryan franchise with a loose adaptation of novelist Tom Clancy's 1992 espionage thriller. The story revolves around Jack Ryan (Ben Affleck, stepping into the shoes originally worn by Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford), a lowly CIA analyst assigned to the Russian desk who finds himself brought into the inner circle by CIA director William Cabot (Morgan Freeman) due to Ryan's research on new Russian president Nemerov (Ciaran Hinds). When a group of multi-national fascists use an Israeli nuke left over from 1973 to try to manipulate the United States and Russia into going to war against each other, it's up to Ryan to get the right information to the right people ...

title: Insomnia 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: R starring: Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Hilary Swank, Maura Tierney, Martin Donovan release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Released theatrically earlier this year, "Insomnia" is a keenly intelligent thriller with some great textured details that give it a distinctive, enveloping atmosphere. Adapted from a 1998 Norwegian thriller (which is in turn adapted from a novel), "Insomnia" puts a famed big-city homicide detective in the middle of nowhere on a murder case, where old questionable judgment, new tragedy and complications threaten to destroy him in the course of doing his job. Adding to the detective’s woes is the fact that he suffers from insomnia, which is considerably worsened by his new environment – a corner of the world so near the Arctic Circle that at this time of year, there is sunlight 24 hours a day.

title: The Game 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: Polygram Video MPAA rating: R starring: Michael Douglas, Sean Penn, James Rebhorn, Deborah Kara Unger, Peter Donat, Carroll Baker, Armin Mueller-Stahl release year: 1997 film rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Like 'The Usual Suspects,' The Game is a movie in which the finale puts everything into perspective. The difference her is that, while the script by John Brancato and Michael Ferris is extremely clever, keeping us speculating until the last few minutes, 'The Game' does not make you want to watch it all over again to see how they did it.
