Ed Harris release year: 1996 reviewed by: Kim Wilson A renegade Marine General (Ed Harris), appalled by the military's policy to deny families of soldiers killed by friendly fire any benefits, takes over the historical landmark Alcatraz Island and threatens to launch a deadly experimental nerve gas into the heart of San Francisco if his demands for $30 million are not met. Involuntarily enlisted from prison by the FBI to assist agent Goodspeed (Cage), a chemical weapons specialist is Mason (Connery). The only person to have escaped from Alcatraz, Mason was later captured and held for years without trial as a political prisoner. The charge of Mason and Goodspeed is to infiltrate the General's well armed defenses and deactivate the rockets armed with the lethal gas.

title: Bullitt 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 Bros. Home Video starring: Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn, Jacqueline Bisset, Don Gordon, Robert Duvall, Simon Oakland, Norman Fell release year: 1968 film rating: Two and a half stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you want to know why 'Bullitt' is still considered a classic three decades after its theatrical release, forward right up to the car chase in Chapter 14. The sequence is a mini-movie in itself, with a moody build-up that accelerates into a grueling, fierce and very convincing duel on real streets. Watching this sequence reminds you that, once upon a time, film action tried to make you imagine what it would be like if you were part of it. This is not to denigrate the strides made in action or effects, but in your heart of hearts, you know you're never going to pilot the Millennium Falcon. Yet, the automotive combat between San Francisco police detective Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen) and ...

title: Purple Rain 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 Video MPAA rating: R starring: Prince, Apollonia Kotero, Morris Day, Jerome Benton, Clarence Williams III release year: 1984 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein In some ways, "Purple Rain" is an emblem of its time. In 1984, MTV was still virtually a toddler of a cable network, albeit a very influential one, and narrative movies sought to emulate the feel of music videos in much more literal ways than is the norm these days. The main characters are all rockers whose lives are scored by their songs, even when they’re not up on stage showing off their chops ("The Cell," for a contrasting example, has a music video’s surreal imagery, pacing and lighting, but the characters aren’t going to leap in front of an audience and begin belting out a number.)

title: Sleepless In Seattle 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: Columbia TriStar Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Bill Pullman, Ross Malinger, Rosie O'Donnell release year: 1993 film rating: Two and One-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'Sleepless in Seattle' is a romantic comedy of surpassing slickness. 'Sleepless' director/co-writer Nora Ephron and stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan all recently worked together again on the 1998 hit 'You've Got Mail.' Even if you enjoyed 'You've Got Mail' (I did), that's no guarantee you'll have fond feelings for the earlier collaboration.
