T H U R S D A Y

John Malkovich is no longer "Mr. Right," but he is in "Of Mice and Men."
FILMS HOLDING:
*CAPTAIm 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. Why is this still playing? At Showcase: 12:00, 2:05.
1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE The very great Gerard Depardieu tries
his luck at another American film, this one directed by Ridley Scott and
starring Sigourney Weaver. We were wrong, by the way; it's no better than
"Christopher Columbus: The Discovery." At Briarwood: 10:05, 1,4, 7,
9:50. At Showcase: Friday and Saturday at 1:00, 4:00, 7:05, 10:05; Sunday
through Wednesday at 1:00, 4:00 and 8:00.
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS It's got the powerhouse male cast of the decade
*(Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Jonathan Pryce, and
Alan Arkin). How you react to the film depends on your feelings for David
"No, Fuck You" Mamet. At Showcase: 12:30, 2:50, 5:10, 7:40, 10:00,
12:10
HERO This attempt to "make 'em like they used to" falls flat on its face,
despite the noble efforts of Geena Davis, Dustin Hoffman and Andy
Garcia. Rent a Frank Capra film instead. At Briarwood: 10:05, 12:10,
2:30, 4:50, 7:15, 9:40, 11:50. At Showcase: 1:20, 4:10, 7:15, 9:45, 12:10.
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.
Gotta love that Michael "Miami Vice" Mann. At Briarwood: 10, 12:10,
2:25,4:45, 7:10, 9:30, 11:45. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:35, 4:55, 7:20, 9:45,
12:00.
THE MIGmY DUcKS Emilio Estevez continues his downward spiral since
the great "Repo Man" with this "Bad News Bears" meets "Slapshot"
schlock. At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:30, 2:30,4:30, 7, 9, 11:30. At Showcase:
12:10, 2:30, 4:50, 7:10, 9:25, 11:35.
MR. BASEBALL Director Fred Schepisi continues his downward spiral
since the great "A Cry in the Dark" with this "Bull Durham" meets "Gung
Ho." Tom Selleck, on the other hand, has never made a good movie. At
Showcase: 12:20, 2:40, 5:00, 7:50, 10:15, 12:30.
ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOw At Briarwood: 12 midnight.
SARAFINAi Adaptation of the popular Broadway musical about South
Africa. With Whoopi Goldberg. The best movie since "Salaam Bombay!"
to contain an exclamation point in the title. At Showcase: 12, 2:15, 4:35,
7:05.
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 Showcase: 9:20, 11:35.
*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, Kyra Sedgwick, Campbell Scott (just chock
full of those yuppie movie stars) and a swingin' Seattle soundtrack. At
Showcase: 12:30,2:40,4:50, 7:20, 9:35, 11:40.
SmEAKERS 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, 2:35, 4:55, 7:20, 9:45. At Showcase:
4:15, 7:10, 9:50, 12:25.
*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
