special effects, futuristic gunplay will appease forgiving
Starring: Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla
Director: Luc Besson
Runtime: 122 minutes
Offbeat, big-budget, all-star
sci-fi/comedy about alien invasion. Classic sci-fi buffs
enjoyed its references to schlocky 1950s-era films. Also
appealing to fans of eye-popping effects, cynical humor who
aren't seeking cohesive storyline.
Nicholson, Glenn Close
Director: Tim Burton
Critics panned this tale of a German shepherd

This cheese-fest is a slightly
entertaining story of a raising demons at a Catholic school

with the Vampire (1994)
Despite what Anne Rice first
thought, Tom Cruise was actually able to pull this film off

Moody cinematography, if you enjoy the Anne Rice books,
you'll like this film.

and end up the following Halloween. It may not be a true
Halloween film but how much more spooky could this family
be? It's always Halloween in the Addams household!
Starring: Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia
Runtime: 102 minutes
This 1991 film is one of those "you either like it
or don't" kind of films. Julian Sands is enough to make us
like it, he plays his role well. An evil, eons-old warlock
torments Los Angeles. Fast pacing, good effects, and clever
moments raise this above most horror flicks.
