Consensus: “Freeway” is audacious, over the top and kind of brilliant. It is a black comedy as well as a sort bizarre examination of a few disturbing personalities. Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland dig in with some daring performances.
Consensus: This movie still cracks me up over 20 years later. This was one of the most outrageous trips to the cinema I have had, not so much because of the movie but because basically everyone I knew was there.
Consensus: A winning performance by Billy Bob Thornton in a mediocre movie:
Consensus: “Breaking The Waves” is powerful and heartbreaking work from director Lars Von Trier.
Consensus: “Jerry Maguire” is a wonderful blending of romance and sports. Tom Cruise, Renee Zellweget and Cuba Golding Jr. are terrific.
Consensus: “Ransom” has a standard kidnappong plot but what elevated it are very strong performances and some truly unexpected twists.
Consensus: “Space Jam” is just silly fun. You can tell that Michael Jordan is just having a ball with his role.
