title: 15 Minutes 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: R (strong violence, language, some sexuality) starring: Robert De Niro, Edward Burns, Kelsey Grammer, Avery Brooks release year: 2001 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Andy Warhol once said that someday, everybody would be famous for 15 minutes. The film "15 Minutes" illustrates the downside of this concept in a vigorous, sly black comedy/actioner that makes some good satirical points while boasting at least two bravura action sequences. Writer/director John Herzfeld stacks the deck unnecessarily in places, but his tale of literal and tabloid overkill is gripping nonetheless. Eddie Flemming (Robert De Niro) is a New York homicide detective and mini-celebrity, thanks to both his "solve" rate and his cooperation with the news media. Eddie’s path intersects with that of Fire Dept. arson nvestigator Jordy Warsaw (Edward Burns) when a building is burned down in a futile attempt to cover up a double murder. The killers, Czech Emily (Karel Roden) ...

title: The Caveman's Valentine 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: Samuel L. Jackson, Colm Feore, Ann Magnuson, Damir Andrei, Aunjanue Ellis, Tamara Tunie, Peter MacNeill, Joy Rodan release year: 2001 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Good murder mysteries that play fair with the audience and yet manage to pull the wool over everyone's collective eyes are common in books, but extremely rare on screen. Few writers and/or directors seem to understand how to layer in clues, how to provide plausible suspects, and how to steer our attention away from the truth.

title: Unbreakable 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: Touchstone Home Video Vista Series MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Robin Wright Penn release year: 2000 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein It is no exaggeration to say that "Unbreakable" is enough to restore one’s faith in the art of storytelling and in the possibilities of finding new, powerful ways to reimagine a classic premise. The problem here is to describe exactly what it is that writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has so deftly and resonantly brought to life from a new angle risks wrecking the sense of discovery for the first-time viewer.

title: Rear Window 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: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter, Wendell Corey, Raymond Burr, Judith Evelyn, Ross Bagdasarian, Georgine Darcy release year: 1954 film rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren While Hitchcock fans and movie buffs in general often argue as to which is the best of the director's many films, few disagree that 'Rear Window' is, at least, in the top three. A sleek, elegant, funny and very suspenseful movie, it's also original, imaginative and perfectly realized. This DVD is the best way so far for a home video buff to own the film; it's likely to remain the best way for years to come. And the disc is laden with fascinating extras.

title: The Mirror Crack'd 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Angela Lansbury, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Kim Novak, Geraldine Chaplin, Edward Fox, Wendy Morgan, Maureen Bennett release year: 1980 film rating: Three-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren How much you enjoy 'The Mirror Crack'd' will depend a great deal more on your appreciation of this cast and this genre of movie. The movie was directed by Guy Hamilton, who rode his directing 'Goldfinger,' much further than would seem possible, and produced by Richard Goodwin and John Brabourne, who had made Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot into a movie favorite (for a while).
