title: Harry Potter & The Chamber Of Secrets 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 MPAA rating: PG starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Richard Harris, Robbie Coltrane, Alan Rickman, Kenneth Branagh release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein New and improved describes “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” a sequel that outshines its already charming predecessor, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” (or “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” if you’re in the U.K.). Like “Stone,” “Chamber” is admirably faithful to both the letter and the spirit of J.K. Rowling’s novel about the young wizard of the title; also like “Stone,” “Chamber” is directed by Chris Columbus and scripted by Steve Kloves, with all of the main cast members returning to their roles and Kenneth Branagh joining the ensemble in one of the most perfect pieces of casting in recent memory.

title: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home   studio: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, Catherine Hicks, Mark Lenard, Jane Wyatt, John Schuck, Brock Peters release year: 1986 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The best "Star Trek" movie, "The Voyage Home" is also the most atypical. There are no onscreen villains, and really none offscreen either; there are no space battles, no dazzling displays of special effects, and everyone in the cast from the series has something worthwhile to do. It's also the only "Trek" that is largely a (deliberate) comedy; it carries a worthwhile environmental message, and is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. It's a "Trek" for people who don't like "Trek," and also one for those who do.

title: Tuck Everlasting 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: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Alexis Bledel, Ben Kingsley, Sissy Spacek, Amy Irving, Victor Garber, Jonathan Jackson, Scott Bairstow, William Hurt release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom The possibility of immortality has long been a subject of discourse for the human race. Usually, those discussions begin with the catalyst for such a change, such as the Philosopher’s Stone, vampirism, etc. But one of the longest-lasting myths of immortality has been the Fountain of Youth. “Tuck Everlasting” takes a new spin on the old tale, and that is an interesting story in its own right. Natalie Babbitt’s novel was first published in 1975, and it was later made into a movie in 1981, prior to this 2002 remake. For a book turning 27 in this age of disposable properties, the novel may well be immortal in its own right, since it has also been chosen as an ALA ...

title: The Man Who Fell To Earth 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: David Bowie, Rip Torn, Candy Clark, Buck Henry Theatrical release year: 1976 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “The Man Who Fell to Earth” is director Nicolas Roeg’s take on the science-fiction novel of the same name by author Walter Tevis, who also wrote “The Hustler,” upon which the famed Paul Newman film was based. David Bowie made his screen acting debut with this film as the title character Thomas Jerome Newton, who arrives on Earth from his now barren planet, a shock of orange hair and a peculiar thirst for water marking him as different. Newton travels from rural New Mexico to the big city, where he swiftly employs Farnsworth (Buck Henry), a talented and odd lawyer, to establish patents on nine inventions that Farnsworth says will net Newton at least $300 million within a short time. Soon Newton ...

title: S1m0ne 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: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Al Pacino, Catherine Keener, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Jay Mohr, Rachel Roberts, Evan Rachel Wood release year: 2002 film rating: Two stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren For years now, there's been a lot of talk about someday replacing human actors with CGI-designed figures, a form of animation. The pinnacle so far is Gollum in "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," while "S1m0ne" tells a tale of when just such an undetectable "synthespian" (as the movie has it) actually becomes a major star. But no one knows she's just the result of a sophisticated computer program.
