title: Pitch Black 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: Universal Studios Home Video MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, Keith David release year: 2000 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘Pitch Black’ is an enjoyable science-fiction/horror flick that should appeal to both traditional genre fans and action aficionados. The movie musters most of the traditional trappings to good effect: cool-looking (if mostly fleetingly shown) monsters, deep space, shipwreck on a distant planet and a small band of survivors who are suspicious of each other.

title: The Cosmic Man 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: Image Entertainment MPAA rating: Unrated starring: John Carradine, Bruce Bennett, Angela Greene, Paul Langton, Scotty Morrow, Lyn Osborn, Walter Maslow, Herbert Lytton release year: 1959 film rating: Two and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren By the late 1950s, the boom in science fiction films was waning, and repetition, always a curse, had set in even more strongly. 'The Cosmic Man' is a low-budget variation on 'The Day the Earth Stood Still;' it has a few ideas of its own, but is mostly a smudged carbon of a much better movie.

'Men in Black' is terrific entertainment, swift and sure of itself, never stepping over the lines of straight-faced comedy into obvious farce. The premise is at once familiar and fresh, the casting is on the money, it's directed in a light, breezy style by Barry Sonnenfeld, and written with poker-faced seriousness by Ed Solomon. Even though the ending doesn't have quite the intended punch, and though we are never told very clearly just what's going on -- there's a good reason for that -- it's so entertaining that few are likely to mind.

title: Terminator 2: Judgement Day   studio: Artisan Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick, Joe Morton, S. Epatha Merkerson, Jenette Goldstein release year: 1991 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The box says this is the "ultimate edition," and it's not kidding. This movie has been given one of the most thorough treatments any film has been afforded on DVD so far. There are two complete cuts of the film, the theatrical release and a longer one featuring scenes that director James Cameron wanted in, but had to remove because of length. Interestingly, for once the added scenes really work; they extend the relationships between the characters, and in particular stress the humanization of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator more than the theatrical-release version was able to.

title: Supernova 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: MGM Home Entertainment starring: James Spader, Angela Bassett, Lou Diamond Phillips, Peter Facinelli release year: 2000 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein To read the history of "Supernova," someone might expect the worst. The film switched directors – from Geoffrey Wright to Walter Hill – in pre-production. During post-production, Hill himself was yanked out of the editing room by the Powers That Be, replaced by Jack ("The Hidden") Sholder, who was in turn replaced by Francis Ford Coppola. Thomas Lee, nobody’s real name, is listed as director in the credits.
