The Full Monty Review


Very Good
Though it's hardly Best Picture-worthy, this lighthearted tale of five working class Brits who try to make ends meet through an impromptu strip show is certainly entertaining in a Farrelly brothers way. Ironically, there's barely even a partial Monty to be seen in the film, which may also strain the English dialect-translation skills of even the most sophisticated viewers.

The Second Coming Review


Good
Jesus returns to earth in 2003, this I can buy. But why on earth would he choose to land in Manchester, England?

It's not quite that simple. In The Second Coming, Christopher Eccleston is a garden-variety drunk named Steve who disappears for 40 days, then reappears and announces himself to be the Second Coming of Christ. Is he crazy? Well, he tosses off a few miracles: turning night into day over the local soccer stadium and later surviving a bomb that goes off right next to him. He also announces that Armageddon will arrive in five days if he is not presented with a "Third Testament." (Exactly what this Third Testament is supposed to be remains a mystery throughout the film -- even to Steve -- and stands as one of the more perplexingly weak facets of the movie.) Hysteria ensues, though fortunately it seems confined to England.

Naked Review


Good
Call me a heathen and a lout, but Naked put me to sleep. Twice.

Back in 1993, the film was one of the first I tried to professionally review. I never did write it. I fell asleep in the movie theater. In 1998 I tried to watch it again on video. I awoke to static late that night after the tape ran out. I'd zonked out right on the couch.

From Hell Review


OK

A vivid yet distinctly fictitious recreation of the crime-plagued gutters of 19th Century London, the Jack the Ripper thriller "From Hell" is quite a homage to the dense graphic novel from which it was spawned.

It's nothing if not atmospheric, what with its opulently dingy, blood-red set dressings, its pinched-cheek and cheap-corset prostitutes, and its opium- and absinthe-addicted hero -- an unorthodox Scotland Yard Inspector named Abberline (Johnny Depp in lambchop sideburns) who discovers dangerous secrets in the Ripper's ritualized killings.

The film's talented directors -- brothers Allen and Albert Hughes ("Menace II Society," "Dead Presidents"), definitively demonstrating there's more to them than ghetto fare -- blend quite a transporting concoction with their viscous visuals, menacing moodiness, puzzling plot and heady performances.
