Andy the jock (Emilio Estevez), Brian the brain (Anthony Michael Hall), John the delinquent (Judd Nelson), Claire the princess (Molly Ringwald) and Allison the kook (Ally Sheedy) imagine they have nothing in common. However, as they first pick on each other over perceived defects, slights and in reaction to attacks, they start to open un and eventually bond. ‘The Breakfast Club’ touched a lot of people in its day – it gets three stars for its undeniable effect on a large portion of the audience. However, if one isn’t prepared to surrender to Hughes’ universe on its own terms, ...

title: A Thousand Acres 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: Touchtone Pictures starring: Michelle Pfeiffer, Jessica Lange, Jason Robards, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Colin Firth, Keith Carradine, Kevin Anderson, Pat Hingle film rating: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "A Thousand Acres" is an ambitious if not always successful re-imagining of Shakespeare's "King Lear," set in the present on an Iowa farm and told from the point of view of the two eldest daughters, here called Ginny (Jessica Lange) and Rose (Michelle Pfeiffer). Director Jocelyn Moorhouse ("How to Make an American Quilt") creates a good sense of environment overall, starting with a striking cloud-scudded sky in Chapter Two, but this film is definitely aimed at drama buffs rather than technophiles

title: Supercop 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: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Jackie Chan, Michelle Khan (Yeoh), Maggie Cheung release year: 1996 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Jackie Chan does not actually turn to the camera at the beginning of 'Supercop' and say, "Hello, I am here to bring you fun." However, that is clearly his mission, and he accomplishes it, as always with supreme grace, agility and an air of blissful friendliness. 'Supercop' is also known as "Police Story III," with Chan as Kevin, a Hong Kong police officer whose good nature co-exists with extraordinary athletic ability. Here, Kevin is asked to work with mainland China's DEA to entrap a vicious drug lord. Kevin's primary colleague is the formidable Chief of Security Yang (Michelle Khan), who can hold her own in a fight. Their adventures include prison breaks, gun battles and a train-top confrontation that ranks with the best.

A new disease has reached epidemic proportions, attacking and killing the children of New York. Entomologist Susan Tyler (Mira Sorvino) uses genetics to find a way to attack the disease's carrier, the common cockroach. She succeeds by creating a hybrid containing termite and manta DNA and this new species kills the roach population by secreting an enzyme that causes the roaches to starve to death. Unfortunately, three years later, Dr. Tyler learns that her genetic species didn't die out in one generation as they were designed to do; instead they have not only bred, but they have evolved exponentially.
