FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:
DRACULA You've been hearing the hype for months. Now here it is,
Francis Ford Coppola's first movie since "The Godfather Part III." With
teenie boppers Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves as well as Hannibal
Lecter and Lee Harvey Oswald. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 12, 2:25, 4:50, 7:30,
10:05; at Showcase: 1:15, 4, 7:25, 10:10, 12:30
At.ADDIN A sneak preview of Disney's latest animated musical. This one
has Robin Williams as a wisecracking genie who aids the young scamp of
the title win a princess. It's also the last collaboration between the Oscar-
winning scoremeisters Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman. At
Showcase: 7:30, Saturday only.
TRACES OF RED Lorraine Bracco won an Oscar nomination in 1990 for
her role in "GoodFellas" and was promptly catapulted into superstardom
with her performances in "Medicine Man" and the child-abuse comedy
"Radio Flyer." This film should be just as big of a hit. At Showcase:
12:10, 2:25, 4:45, 7:20, 9:40, 11:50.

At long last, Francis Ford Coppola's "Dracula." Pray that it doesn't suck.
FILMS HOLDING:
BEETHOVEN An auspicious beginning for the new State. At State Theater:
2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday only - if the place opens.
Bor ROBERTS We meant to catch this the first time around, but... At State
Theater: 7, 9
CANDYWIAN This horror flick is not only laughably bad, it's offensive. At
Briarwood: 10:15, 12:45, 2:50, 5, 7:40, 9:50, 11:50. At Showcase: 12:40, 3,
5:20, 7:55, 10:15, 12:25.
"CONSENTING ADULTS Director Alan J. Pakula ("Presumed Innocent") is
presumed incompetent with this disastrously DePalma-esque thriller. Poor
Kevin Spacey. At Showcase: 12:50, 3:05, 5:20, 7:50, 10:05, 12:10
COOL WORLD David Bowie's on the soundtrack. We can't think of any
other redeeming features to this animated debacle. At State Theater: 11
p.m.
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSs David (Dial 'F' for "Fucking") Mamet's play is
just not meant to be a movie. Do you hear me? Do you hear me? Do you
fucking hear me? (This is what is known as "rhythmic dialogue.") People
.who like this kind of thing are just trying to be pretentious. Excuse me, but
what the hell does the title mean exactly? At Showcase: 12:30, 2:50, 5:10,
7:40, 9:55, 12:05.
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 fihn instead. This will make you retch.
Nowhere near as good as "A River Runs Through It." At Briarwood: 10,
2:40, 7:25, 12.
JENNIFER 8 Andy Garcia (just in that lame dog "Hero") is some kind of
cop in a detective thriller, not exactly a career departure for the star of
"Internal Affairs," "The Untouchables," and "Black Rain." Uma Thurman,
so cool in "Henry and June," and John Malkovich co-star. At Briarwood:
10, 12:15, 2:40, 5, 7:30, 9:55, 12:10. At Showcase: 1:15, 4:15, 7:15, 10,
12:30.
THE LAST OF THE MoulCAiS Daniel Day Lewis becomes a 18th-century
stud in this truly exciting film of Cooper's long-winded novel. Almost as
good as "A River Runs Through It." Two thumbs up, way up. At
Briarwood: 10, 12:10, 2:25, 4:50, 7, 9:30, 11:45. At Showcase: 1:30, 4:15,
7:05, 9:30, 11:50.
THE MIGHTY Duacs At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:30, 2:30, 4:30, 7, 9, 11:30.
*At Showcase: 12:10, 2:30, 4:50, 7:05 (not on Saturday), 9:20, 11:30.
OF MICE AND MEN Gary Sinise, founder of Chicago's Steppenwolf
Theatre, stars (in a wonderfully understated perfonnance) and directs this
highly successful Steinbeck adaptation. Malkovich goes over the top, but
that doesn't do too much damage to the proceedings. Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin
Peaks" the TV show, not the lame movie) is also along for the ride. At
Showcase: 1:25, 4:10, 7:15, 9:45, 12:00.
PASSENGER 57 Wesley Snipes srrs as some kind of cop in a Die Hardian
action thriller. Why bother? Why ask why? Why? At Briarwood: 10:05,
11:50, 1:45, 4, 7:15, 9:15, 11:15. At Showcase: 12:55, 3, 5:05, 7:30, 9:35,
11:30.
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT Robert Redford hits a home run with his
third directorial effort, the only recent movie besides "Howards End" and
"Husbands and Wives" that deserves the oft-misused adjective, "great."
See it again and again. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 11:35, 2, 4:30, 7:05, 9:35; at
Showcase: 1:35, 4:15, 7:10, 9:45, 12:15.
SISTER ACT Whoopi Goldberg makes a lot of money. At State Theater: 2,
7, 9:15.
SNEAKERS Robert Redford ought to stay behind the camera. His "A River
Runs Through It" has finally arrived. Go see that instead of this weak
*thriller. At Briarwood: 12:20, 4:55, 9:40. At Showcase: 12:20, 4:55, 9:40.
UNDER SIECE We can honestly call this Seagal's best work to date;
interpret that however you wish. At Briarwood: 10, 12, 2:10, 4:15, 7, 9:10,
11:30. At Showcase: 12:40, 2:55, 5:10, 7:45, 10:10, 12:20.
WATERLAND Uh-oh, another highbrow literary adaptation. Unlike the
recent spate of books made into movies, however, this one sucks big time.
With Jeremy Irons. At Showcase: 2:30, 9:50, 11:50.
WAYNE'S WORLD You haven't seen this yet? At State Theater: 11:15
p.m.
ZEBRAHEAD Filmed in Motown, this movie was produced by Oliver Stone
and it's not half bad, featuring beautiful (?) cinematography. Stand up and
tell 'em you're from Detroit! At Showcase: 12:30, 2:45, 5, 7:30, 9:50, 12.
