CAMPUS CINEMA

FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE The very great Gerard Depardieu tries
is luck at another American film, this one directed by Ridley Scott and
starring Sigourney Weaver. One thing's for certain, however: it's better
than "Christopher Columbus: The Discovery." (See related story, page 5.)
At Showcase: Friday and Saturday at 1:00, 4:00, 7:05, 10:00; Sunday
through Wednesday at 1:00, 4:00 and 8:00.
UNDER SIEGE Steven Seagal ("Above the Law," "Hard to Kill") makes a
major break with the past with this two-word title. Tommy Lee Jones
delivers the line of the year: "This is not the work of a cook." At Show-
case: 1:30, 4:45, 7:45, 10:10, 12:30.

F R IDCA Y

Steven Seagal's no average cook in his latest blockbuster, "Under Siege."
FILMS HOLDING:
BOB ROBERTS lim Robbins stars and directs this mock documentary
about a right-wing political candidate. It's a one-joke movie, but it's a darn
funny joke. And with songs like "'he 'imes are Changin' Back," we really
wish he'd release the soundtrack. At Showcase: 2:30.
CAPTAIN RON If you want to see a good Kurt Russell movie, rent "t Ised
Cars"; if you want to see a bad one, see anything since, including this one
with Martin Short. At Showcase: 12:20, 2:30, 4:40, 7:10, 9:20, 11:30.
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS It's got the powerhouse male cast of the (eCade
(.Jack I.einmmon, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Id Iarris, Jonathan Pryce, and
elan Arkin). It's a good David Mainet play, but on film, it dies. At
Showcase: 12:30, 2:40, 5:00, 7:35, 10:05, 12:20
HERO This attempt to "make 'em like they used to" falls flat on its face,
despite the noble efforts of Geena Davis, Dustin 1 offman and Andy
Garcia. Rent a Frank Capra film instead. At Showcase: 1:20, 4:10, 7:15,
9:50, 12:10.
HUSBANDS AND WIVES Woody may have made a mess of his personal
life, but this is one of his best films since "Ilannah and her Sisters." Judy
Davis is the best thing to come out of Australia since Foster's Lager. Catch
t before it leaves, it's not making too much money. At Showcase: 12:15,
2:40, 5:00, 7:30
INNOCENT BLOOD John Landis' latest is actually better than "An Ameri-
can Werewolf in London," and Anne Parrillaud is still mighty cool. At
Showcase: 9:55, 12:15.
THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS 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. And guess what, it's really good.
At Showcase: 12:10, 2:35, 4:55, 7:25, 9:50, 12:05
THE MIGHTY DUCKS Emilio Estevez continues his downward spiral since
the great "Repo Man" with this "Bad News Bears" meets "Slapshot"
schlock. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:30, 4:50, 7:15, 9:40, 11:50.
MR. BASEBALL Director Fred Schepisi continues his downward spiral
since the great "A Cry in the Dark" with this "Bull l)urham" meets "Gung
Ho." Tom Selleck, on the other hand, has never made a good movie. (See
review, page 3.) At Showcase: 12:20, 2:40, 5:00, 7:35, 10:05, 12:20.
MR. SATURDAY NIGHT The preview's unfunny as hell, but Billy
Crystal's directorial debut is not half bad. 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. With Whoopi Goldberg. 'he best movie since "Salam Bombay!"
to contain an exclamation point in the title. At Ann Arbor: 12, 2:15, 4:35,
7:05, 9:25.
SCHOOL TIES It's got a lbunch of hunks but a serious theme too, dealing
with anti-Semitism in the '50s. With the Encino Man himself, Brendan
Fraser. At Showcase: 12:40, 3:00, 5:20, 7:50, 10:15, 12:25
SINGLES Cfuneron 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, Kyra Sedgwick, Campbell Scott (just
chockfull of those yuppie movie stars) and a swingin' Seattle soundtrack.
At Showcase: 12:30, 2:40, 4:50, 7:20, 9:35, 11:40.
SNEAKERS 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. (See related story, page 8.) At Showcase: 1:15, 4:00, 7:20, 10:05,
12:30.
All late-nite shows are Friday and Saturday only. No afternoon shows on
Monday, Wednesday, T7 hu rsday an!d Friday andl no shows before 2:00 on
Tuesday at the Ann Arbor I & 2.
