title: Pulp Fiction 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: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer release year: 1994 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The pleasures of 'Pulp Fiction' are many and varied, ranging from writer/director Quentin Tarantino's love of bad boy characters and dialogue to the opportunity to hear Tim Roth use his own accent for once in an American movie. By now, sections of the movie have been parodied in everything, even 'Antz.' Indeed, a whole (pretty lame) feature-length send-up, 'Plump Fiction,' even found its way into theatres.

title: Starship Troopers   studio: Columbia-Tristar Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, Jake Busey, Neil Patrick Harris, Michael Ironside, Patrick Muldoon release year: 1997 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren "Starship Troopers" is one of the most misunderstood and, therefore, underrated movies of the 1990s. It came under attack by a few fans of Robert A. Heinlein, author of the 1959 book on which the film was based, for not being enough like the novel. The Archie-and-Veronica-in-space plotline was criticized for being shallow and juvenile. Some people, incredibly, even accused the movie of being pro-fascist, when it's precisely the opposite. And it didn't do very well at the boxoffice, mostly because of its R rating.

title: Dead Presidents 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: Hollywood Pictures Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Larenz Tate, Keith David, Chris Tucker, N'Bushe Wright release year: 1997 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein 'Dead Presidents' is nothing if not ambitious. A combination heist drama, war movie and domestic tragedy, it packs an impressive range and variety of events into a running time just under two hours. The film is fast-paced and has visual pizzazz, but in trying to pack so many events and genres into a single storyline, directors Allen & Albert Hughes and screenwriter Michael Henry Brown (who all collaborated on the story together) wind up sacrificing emotional involvement.

title: Cop Land 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: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Sylvester Stallone, Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Peter Berg, Janeane Garofalo, Robert Patrick, Michael Rapaport, Annabella Sciorra release year: 1997 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Don't let Sylvester Stallone's top billing in the title fool you. There is a bit of action in 'Cop Land,' here and there, but there are few pyrotechnics. This police corruption thriller is in fact refreshingly economic (if not the greatest challenge for a home theater system), with a carefully-paced build-up and an intelligent script. For viewers who may feel bludgeoned into resentment (if not something stronger) by some of his other recent offerings, this movie even reminds us that, given decent material, Stallone is a pretty good actor.

title: Grosse Pointe Blank 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: Hollywood Pictures Home Video starring: John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Dan Aykroyd release year: 1997 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Funny, friendly and sweet, 'Grosse Point Blank' is all the more disarming because its hero's profession would seem to preclude all of these attributes. After all, nice guy though he is, Martin Q. Blank (John Cusack) is a professional hit man.
