title: Zero Effect 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: Warner Home Entertainment/Castle Rock Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Bill Pullman, Ben Stiller, Kim Dickens, Ryan O'Neal release year: 1998 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Kim Wilson Darryl Zero (Bill Pullman) is in many ways a Sherlock Holmes for the '90s, a genius at deduction who is clueless when it comes to his own interactions with others. Zero considers himself the world's greatest living detective and insists on maintaining his anonymity with clients, sending his loyal, but much-abused associate Steve Arlo (Ben Stiller) to conduct any in-person transactions.

title: The Boxer 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: PG-13 starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Emily Watson, Brian Cox, Ken Stott release year: 1997 film rating: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Despite its title, ‘The Boxer’ is ultimately less about pugilism than about the combative footwork of politics in North Ireland. The title character, 32-year-old Danny Flynn (Daniel Day-Lewis), is newly released after having spent 14 years in jail for his part in RA violence. Danny has long since turned his back on the cause, but his refusal to name names to the police means that he is grudgingly tolerated by his former compatriots. Danny almost immediately gets in new trouble, however. He supports his old trainer Ike (Ken Stott) in a plan to establish a non-sectarian gymnasium in the heart of Catholic Belfast and he wants to woo back his old sweetheart Maggie (Emily Watson). Maggie is not only the daughter of a high-ranking IRA official (Brian Cox), but she’s also ...

title: Invasion Of The Body Snatchers 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 starring: Gabrielle Anwar, Terry Kinney, Billy Wirth, Forest Whitaker, Meg Tilly release year: 1993 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The third screen version of Jack Finney’s thought-provoking and creepy novel, ‘Body Snatchers’ is dark and unsettling, retaining the claustrophobic terror of the two earlier editions while adding a few original eerie touches. The film also arguably represents the most readily accessible work from director Abel Ferrara.

  title: From Dusk Till Dawn 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: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis release year: 1996 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "From Dusk Till Dawn" won’t be everyone’s cup of bullets and blood, but it is a near-perfect specimen of its rare type, an amalgamation of "Reservoir Dogs," "Desperado" and the "Evil Dead" films that switches genres on a dime. It is quick of wit and quicker of pace, bracingly profane, often hilarious and gross at the same time, gaudily violent, in-your-face and generally a hell of a lot of fun for those who enjoy this sort of thing. Those who don’t enjoy this sort of thing should probably avoid the artwork on the box, let alone the film itself.

title: Daylight 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 Studios Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Sylvester Stallone, Amy Brenneman, Viggo Mortensen, Dan Hedaya release year: 1996 film rating: Two and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Although the cast and the (literally) smashing ILM special effects are up to date, at heart ‘Daylight’ is very much a ‘70s disaster flick, right down to the irrelevant pop ballad over the closing credits (in this case, "Wherever There Is Love" sung by Donna Summer).
