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.
Consensus: This film is a guilty pleasure. I get a real kick out of the creature effects and Val Kilmer’s weirdly, unhinged performance. I’m also a sucker for lost island adventure films.
Consensus: As entertaining as this modern set adaptation of the famous Shakespeare play is I found myself unsure if the filmmakers understood the source material.
Consensus: “Scream” changed the slasher genre forever. For the first time the characters were self aware and tried to avoid horror movie cliches even if that filmmakers still couldn’t get away from a few of them. I love this movie, from the wicked and self aware humor to the vicious killer and slick direction from Wes Craven.
