This new DVD includes features the older one lacked, including recently-filmed comments by Angela Lansbury and (somewhat peculiarly) William Friedkin. No, Friedkin had nothing to do with the movie; he’s just a director who likes it a lot and has some interesting things to say about it. This release retains the commentary track by the late John Frankenheimer, who recorded it for the laserdisc release.

title: Conair 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(); MPAA rating: R starring: Nicolas Cage, John Cusak, John Malkovich, Steve Buscemi, Ving Rhames and Colm Meany film rating: Two and One Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Produced by the same folks who brought you The Rock, Conair is another high-energy action film with a totally implausible plot. Nicolas Cage plays a prison parolee on his way home when his plane is taken over by ruthless convicts. However, in typical Hollywood over-kill fashion, these are not just ordinary prisoners, they are the scum of the earth, complete psychopaths. Now, most rational people might tend to ask, "Why are these madmen being transported with the general prison populace without a second thought?" Unfortunately, most rational people aren't Hollywood movie producers now are they. In fact, when they bring the most heinous criminal on board in more chains and restraints then they had on Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, you actually find yourself laughing as ...

title: The Trial 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: Fox Lorber Home Video/Image Entertainment starring: Kyle MacLachlan, Anthony Hopkins, Jason Robards release year: 1992 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The Austrian writer Franz Kafka is so well known for his particular brand of dread of mysterious persecution that the word 'Kafkaesque' has become part of the common vernacular. Director David Jones and playwright/screenwriter Harold Pinter have turned Kafka's creepy novel 'The Trial' into a movie that is as bizarre and arbitrary as the events it depicts. Although the film was made in 1992, 'The Trial' looks and sounds uncannily like a product of the '60s. Indeed, Patrick McGoohan's 'Prisoner' would not be out of place in these surroundings, though doubtless he'd do a better job against his adversaries than does Kyle MacLachlan's smug Josef K.

title: Happy Gilmore 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: Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald, Julie Bowen, Frances Bay, Carl Weathers, Bob Barker, Richard Kiel, Kevin Nealon, Ben Stiller release year: 1996 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Adam Sandler must have enjoyed making Happy Gilmore, because he more or less remade it two years later as The Waterboy. He dumbed it down (not easy), broadened the humor and increased the vulgarity. But the most surprising change is that in Happy Gilmore, the terrible temper of the title character -- played by Sandler, of course -- is a defect in Happy Gilmore and a virtue in The Waterboy. This does not represent progress.
