Setting aside the hamfisted Alan Parsons score and Rutger Hauer's equally hammy performance, Ladyhawke is a fine little fantasy based on a timeless tale. A curse has caused Hauer and his lover (Michelle Pfeiffer) to never cross paths -- he turns into a wolf at night, she turns into a hawk by day. Matthew Broderick -- who redeems the film completely for any of its datedness -- plays the thief who aids the pair in exacting revenge on an evil bishop (John Wood, reunited with Broderick from WarGames). Moody and quite dark, this is a great movie for a sleepy Sunday afternoon.
In the space opera Enemy Mine, two men -- one human, one Klingon-inspired alien -- face off after crash landing on a hostile planet. Their species are at war, but they have to work together if they're to survive until... what? This treatise on war and racism has good acting and characterizations, but the special effects are so brazenly cheesy as to make the whole thing frequently laughable.
