CAMPUS CINEMA

FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

LOADED WEAPON I National Lampoon's spoof on recent movies. As if
"Basic Instinct" needed parodying. At Showcase: 1:10, 3:10, 5:10, 7:30,
9:35, 11:25.
THE VANISHING George Sluizer does the Hitchcock thing by remaking his
own movie, a truly terrifying Dutch thriller from a few years ago. What
scares us even more is that this Hollywood version stars Kiefer Sutherland.
At Showcase: 12:30, 2:55, 5:20, 7:50, 10:20, 12:30.
SOMMERSBY Yet another Hollywood pillaging of a European film, this one
of that favorite French-class hit, "The Return of Martin Guerre." With
Richard Gere as Gerard Depardieu. At Showcase: 12:25, 2:50, 5:15, 7:45,
A 10:15, 12:25.

T H U R S D A Y
THE CRYING GAME (1992) The
movie everyone is talking to death.
A lot of people love it, but a lot of
people like "The Bodyguard," too.
Mich Th 9:20.
SIMPLE MEN (1992) Hal Hartley:
he talks about nothing, but it means
stuff. Weird, whacked-out fun from
the blissful director of "Trust" and
"The Unbelievable Truth." Mich Th
7:15.

T H U R S D A Y

F R I D A Y

Jodie Foster shoots herself in the foot by starring in "Sommersby."
FILMS HOLDING:
ALADDIN It's probably the best movie of the Christmas season - it's an
animated feature, not a cartoon, damnit! Robin Williams will never find a
better role (at least it's not in "Toys.") At Showcase: Fri at 12:35, 2:40,
4:45, 7, 9 ,11; Sat at 12:35, 2:40, 4:45, 9, 11; Sun at 2:40, 4:45, 7, 9; Mon-
Thu at 12:35, 2:40, 4:45, 7,9.
AuVE Disney goes cannibal in this inspiring tale about some schmucks
who have to eat each other to survive - all handled quite tastefully, we
hear. If only Ethan Hawke was the one who got eaten ... At Showcase:
1:35,4:15, 7:25, 10:10,12:30.
ASPEN EXTREME "Top Gun" meets "Cocktail" in Colorado. But hey, it
mentions Detroit, so it can't be all bad. With no stars, just talent. At
Showcase: 12:25, 5, 7:35.
BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA Coppola's orgy o' self-indulgence sucks even
more the second time you see it. At State: 1, 4:30, 9:45, 12
CHILDREN OF THE CORN II: THE FINAL SACRIFICE The kiddies are back
for more satanic swingin' in the latest from the director of "Son of Dark-
ness 2: To Die For." Believe it or not, it's not that bad as far as this kind of
shit goes. At Showcase: 12:35, 2:45, 4:50, 7:20, 9:30, 11:30
DAMAGE Only, and we do mean only, director Louis Malle could make a
good movie out of such a mediocre tale o' obsession. With fine perfor-
mances from Jeremy Irons and Miranda Richardson. At Showcase: 1:40;
4:20, 7:15, 9:45, 12.
A FEW GOOD MEN Rob Reiner's latest lowest common denominator
blockbuster manages a Few Good Scenes with Jack, but little more. But,
boy, oh boy, that Tom Cruise really is irresistible. At Showcase: Fri at
12:50, 3:50, 7:05, 10, 12:35; Sat at 12:50, 3:50, 9:25, 12:05; Sun-Thu at
12:50, 3:50, 7:05, 10.
FLIRTING Excellent coming-of-age drama from Australian director John
Duigan, a sequel to "The Year My Voice Broke." With Noah Taylor. At
Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 12:45, 2:50, 5, 7:20, 9:40.
HOwARDS END Somebody told us that this flick ain't so bad. At State: 7
p.m. only.
LORENzO'S OIL Though this miracle cure movie has the potential to be
another "Awakenings," thanks to director George Miller ("Mad Max"), it
lays off the sentimental crap. The great Nick Nolte tries an Italian accent;
also with Susan Sarandon. At Showcase: 12:45, 3:40, 7, 9:50, 12:25.
THE LOVER The latest from director Jean-Jacques Annaud ("Quest for
Fire," "The Bear") is an adaptation of a Marguerite Duras novel. This is
one of those French sex movies you've always heard about. At Ann Arbor
1 & 2: 12:30, 2:35, 4:45, 7:05, 9:20.
MATINEE Director Joe Dante's testament to B-horror movies might just be
his "Citizen Kane." But don't let that scare you off. It's actually funny, in a
"Gremlins 2" sort of way. At Showcase: 12:40, 2:50, 5, 7:25, 9:40, 11:40.
NOWHERE TO RU We do not like him, Sam I Am. We do not like Jean-
Claude Van Damme. At Showcase: 2:55, 10:05, 12.
STHE PLAYER Despite what some will tell you, this is a very good Robert
Altman film. (See P.O.V., page 4.) At State: 2, 4:30, 7, 9:30, 12.
SCENT OF A WOMAN The Golden Globe winner for the best picture of
1992. We smell a rat. At Showcase: Fri/Sat/Sun at 12:30, 3:45, 7:10, 10:15;
Mon-Thu at 2, 5 and 8 p.m.
SMPER Tom Berenger ("Platoon') tries to become the new
Schwarzenegger in this lowbrow action pic set in Panama. Talk about
jungle fever. At Showcase: 1:05, 3:15, 5:25, 7:40, 9:55, 12.
USED PEOPLE Don't let the good cast fool you. The director of "Antonia
and Jane" wastes a decent group of actors that includes Marcia Gay Harden
* in this "Fried Green Magnolias." Yes, "Fried Green Magnolias." Poor
