Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves

BBBB (out of 5) Even the simplest of history buffs can point out the many inaccuracies and inconsistencies in this rousing film adventure, starting with the decidedly non-British performance by lead Kevin Costner.  His wooden acting aside, this film is far behind Michael Curtiz’s Errol Flynn swashbuckler but still an enjoyable cinema treat. Returning from … More Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves

Wrongfully Accused

0 (out of 5) This one’s bad even by Leslie Nielsen‘s standards. You’ll get way more laughs out of repeat viewings of The Naked Gun movies before you’ll chuckle watching this spoof of The Fugitive starring Nielsen in the Harrison Ford role.

Angel Eyes

BBB.5 (out of 5) Syrupy, mellow drama from director Luis Mandoki that is sometimes flat but, thanks to a fair share of lovely moments and excellent performances by its two leads, is never worth abandoning. Jennifer Lopez is riveting as a Chicago cop who is still hurting over the many conflicts she has had since … More Angel Eyes
