title: The Score 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 Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, Marlon Brando, Angela Bassett release year: 2001 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "The Score" is a pleasant, relatively low-key procedural heist drama, given some added weight by the presence of stars Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, Marlon Brando and Angela Bassett. The big-gun cast elevates material that is already well-shaped and intelligent, albeit somewhat routine.

title: Dirty Harry 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: Clint Eastwood, Harry Guardino, Rene Santoni, Andy Robinson, John Vernon release year: 1971 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "Dirty Harry" is a strikingly good detective film that shows its 1971 era, but nevertheless holds up remarkably well seen 30 years after its initial theatrical release. Warner Home Video has brought forth a new DVD edition that has been struck from a blessedly clear print, with sound that – while it won’t compete with movies actually recorded in 5.1 – is a lot more appealing than what is usually found on most mono-into-surround soundtracks.

title: Miss Marple Three episodes from the series of TV movies including: "The Body in the Library", "A Murder is Announced" and "A Pocketful of Rye". 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: BBC Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Joan Hickson as Agatha Christie's Miss Jane Marple release year: 1984-85 film rating: The Body in the Library: Four stars A Murder is Announced: Three and a half stars A Pocketful of Rye: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Joan Hickson had a long career as a character actress; as early as 1937's "Love from a Stranger," she was in a movie based on an Agatha Christie story. When she appeared in Christie play in the late 1940s, Christie herself told the surprised actress that when she was old enough, she should play Christie's redoubtable spinster-detective, Jane Marple. Hickson actually was in "Murder She Said" (1961), the first of the Miss Marple movie series starring Margaret Rutherford as a hardly true-to-Christie but still very entertaining Miss Marple.

title: Along Came a Spider 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 Entertainment MPAA rating: R (violence and language) starring: Morgan Freeman, Monica Potter, Michael Wincott, Penelope Ann Miller release year: 2001 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you can get past some improbabilities, "Along Came a Spider" is a pretty good thriller, with a riveting performance from star Morgan Freeman and one genuinely startling plot twist. The film does suffer from a common thriller-genre malady – it never fulfills its early promise of acute psychological insight – but it’s fast-paced and entertaining. Freeman, reprising his Detective Alex Cross role from "Kiss the Girls," loses his partner under traumatic circumstances in the opening sequence. Eight months later, he is jolted out of his guilt and grief when he’s assigned to a high-profile kidnapping case – at the request of the kidnapper (Michael Wincott), who has his own reasons for wanting Cross on the case. Cross finds himself teamed with the self-blaming Secret Service ...

title: Memento 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: Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano release year: 2001 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Five Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom "Memento" is movie production as a unique art form. The concept of vengeance is an old one, presumably brought into being directly following the first act of aggression triggered by jealousy and hate. Vengeance has been a driving force of several movies, and all of the action heroes that have pursued the satisfaction of revenge through celluloid worlds owe a certain part of their career to this raw emotion.
