The Other Sister Review


Terrible
One of the more insulting and viscerally nauseating films this year, Diane Keaton reprises her role as the mother from Father of the Bride and kicks it up a notch to uber-annoying. Oh, and no one else is any good in this picture, either. And the script blows, too. After all, was the world really clamoring for a "mentally challenged couple falls in love" picture???

Norma Rae Review


Good
Sally Field made us like her, really like her, as the scrappy, titular star of this unionization drama, the true story of a poor textile worker who rallies the troops to vote in the union at her plant. Now awfully dated and more than a little one-sided, Norma Rae is a fine showcase for Field's prodigious acting talents, but it's hardly the classic it's often surmised to be.

Quigley Down Under Review


Excellent
I don't know when the law was passed, but action movies are now required to have at least half of their content full of revved up, gravity defying, John Woo influenced kung fu acrobatics. Even classic literature is veering in that direction; witness (in my case, with a pained look) the preview for The Musketeer. It's only a matter of time before Helena Bonham Carter and Ian Holm start running on treetops, bellowing lines from King Lear. Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing that, come to think of it.

With such a glut of over-choreographed action flicks, maybe that's why I was so excited to watch Quigley Down Under, the 1990 cowboy flick starring Tom Selleck and Laura San Giacomo. Directed by Lonesome Dove's Simon Wincer, it's a simple, very entertaining tale. Within the movie's first five minutes, there's a fistfight and everyone adheres to the laws of gravity. That's a good sign.
