FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

T H U R S D A Y T H U R S D A Y

T H U R

S D A Y

Bos ROBERTS Tim Robbins: genius or just the latest in a series of self-
serious, annoying actors who think they can direct? One thing's for sure:
it's no "Tanner '88" (See story, page 6.) At Briarwood: 10:05, 12:05, 2:10,
4:15, 7, 9:10, 11:15.
InwocEnT BLOOD Will John Landis's latest be as good as "An American
Werewolf in London?" And can French sensation Anne Parillaud speak
English intelligibly? At Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:40, 10:10, 12:25
THE LAST OF THE MoHicANs Well, after months of shuffling the release
date, Hollywood finally lets Daniel Day-Lewis's first film since his Oscar
win for "My Left Foot" see the light of day. At Briarwood: 10, 12:10, 2:30,
4:50, 7:20, 9:45, 11:55 At Showcase: 12:10, 2:35, 4:55, 7:25, 9:45, 12.
MR. SATURDAY NIGHT Billy Crystal: genius or just the latest in a series
of self-serious, annoying actors who think they can direct? At Ann Arbor:
12:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7:20, 9:45; At Showcase: 1:25, 4:20, 7:35, 10:10, 12:30.
SARAFINA! Adaptation of the popular Broadway musical about South
Africa. See review, page 5. With Whoopi Goldberg. At Ann Arbor: 12,
2:15, 4:55, 7:05, 9:15; At Showcase: 12:15, 2:35, 4:55, 7:15, 9:30, 11:45.

Tim Robbins sings "Drugs Stink" and other hits as "Bob Roberts."
FILMS HOLDING:
BLADE RUNNER Oh boy, it's the director's cut. Maybe there was a reason
they left some scenes out. Oh, sorry, "Electric Sheep" purists, please
forgive our ignorance. At Showcase: 1:40, 4:20, 7:40, 10:15, 12:30..
CAPTAIN RON If you want to see a good Kurt Russell movie, rent "Used
Cars"; if you want to see a bad one, see anything since, including this one
with Martin Short. At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:30, 2:45, 4:45, 7, 9,11:15 at
Showcase: 12:20, 2:35, 4:45, 7:15, 9:30, 11:40.
HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH Another of the great trilogies. And
* sadly enough, this moneymaking dog was produced by Miramax Films -
which used to make good movies. At Showcase: 2:35, 9:25, 11:25.
HONEYMOON IN VEGAS Hilarious comedy with James Caan, Sarah
Jessica Parker, and Nicholas Cage, probably the best deadpan comic
around. Elvis, or at least several flying impersonators of him, lives! At
Showcase: 12:30, 2:40, 4:50, 7:10, 9:25, 11:30
HUSBANDS AND WIVES Woody may have made a mess of his personal
life, but this is one of his best films since "Hannah and her Sisters." Judy
Davis is the best thing to come out of Australia since Foster's Lager. And
director-turned-actor Sydney Pollack is awfully good too. At Briarwood:
10:05, 12:10, 2:20, 4:35, 7, 9:15; at Showcase: 12:15, 2:35, 4:55, 7:30,
9:55, 12:10.
ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOw No advance screening; not yet re-
viewed. At Briarwood: 11:30.
SCHOOL TIES It's got a bunch of hunks but a serious theme too, dealing
with anti-Semitism in the '50s. With the Encino Man himself, Brendan
Fraser. At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:30, 2:35, 4:40, 7:15, 9:30, 11:45 At
Showcase: 12:40, 3, 5:20, 7:50, 10:15, 12:25.
SINGLES Cameron Crowe's ("Say Anything") latest is a romantic comedy
about young folks in love for young folks in love. It's not all that great, but
any movie that gives Tad and Eddie Vedder lines is hard to resist. With
Matt Dillon, Bridget Fonda and a swingin' Seattle soundtrack. At
Briarwood: 10:05, 12, 2:05, 4: 15, 7, 9:05, 11:15; At Showcase: 12:30,
2:40, 4:50, 7:20, 9:35, 11:40.
SINGE WHrm FEMALE Fine, fine acting from Bridget Fonda and Jennifer
Jason Leigh, utterly wasted in this cheesy "Fatal Attraction"-style thriller.
See "Singles" instead if you need a good date movie. At Showcase: 9:50,
12:05.
SISTER Acr $100 million and counting. It says a lot about the quality of
summer movies that this one was a sleeper hit. At Showcase: 12:20,4:40,
7:10.
SmEiArus Phil Alden Robinson's follow-up to "Field of Dreams" is as
stale as J. Danforth Quayle. Robert Redford ought to stay behind the
camera. At Briarwood: 10, 12:15, 2:40,4:55, 7:25, 9:55, 12:10; At Show-
case: 1:15, 4:00, 7:20, 10:05,12:30.
U woRcavm Clint Eastwood is one of the most interesting directors
around. See this one, then catch his underrated "White Hunter, Black
Heart" on video. Featuring Richard Harris, who steals scenes from the
great Gene Hackman - now that's an accomplishment. At Showcase:
4:05,7:05.
WIND This dog's checking out of theaters faster than Hurricane Andrew.
Maybe that means we won't have to endure much more of Matthew
