title: The Day The Earth Caught Fire 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: Unrated starring: Edward Judd, Janet Munro, Leo McKern, Michael Goodliffe, Bernard Braden, Reginald Beckwith, Reneé Asherson, Arthur Christiansen release year: 1961 film rating: Four-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'The Day the Earth Caught Fire' is one of the best science fiction movies ever made. It's aimed entirely at adults, and has few (but excellent) special effects. A dry, black-and-white British movie, it has almost no action scenes, and a great deal of dialog. And it is still one of the best science fiction movies ever made.

title: A Clockwork Orange 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: R starring: Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Adrienne Corri, Miriam Karlin release year: 1971 film rating: Four-and-a-half stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Based fairly faithfully on Anthony Burgess’ novel, ‘A Clockwork Orange’ holds up almost 30 years after its initial release as an indelible slice of future shock. The images, the slang, individual shots, even certain line readings, once sampled, hold on in the memory forever.

title: Dungeons & Dragons 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: New Line Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Justin Whalin, Marlon Wayans, Thora Birch, Bruce Payne, Jeremy Irons release year: 2000 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "Dungeons & Dragons" as a film is in a bit of a can’t-win situation – it’s based on the granddaddy of all first-person do-it-yourself games, in which the whole idea is to participate rather than sit back and watch, as is required by movies. "Dungeons & Dragons" never attempts to address this conundrum, but it honorably incorporates various famous aspects of the game, which (for those who are just now catching up with Western civilization pop culture of the last 30 years) sends characters, human and otherwise, on elaborate and dangerous quests through fantasy realms.

title: Predator 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: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Elpidia Carrillo, Bill Duke release year: 1987 reviewed by: Bill Warren Any movie with special effects that still look smart and exciting twelve years after its initial release deserves some respect right off the bat. Such is the case with ‘Predator,’ which is otherwise a slightly silly, but absolutely diverting Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle.

title: Tron 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 Pictures MPAA rating: PG starring: Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan and Barnard Hughes release year: 1982 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Remember what computer technology was like back in 1992? How about 1982? Watching 'Tron' in 1998 (now sixteen years after its original theatrical release) affords a pleasure that writer/director Steven Lisberger probably never intended. As far as the world of cinematic effects (and the real world as well for that matter) we've come a long way, baby.
