CAMPUS C' I~EMA I~~

FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

THE CEmETERY CL uB Director Bill Duke ("Deep Cover," "A Rage in
Harlem") does his best Herbert Ross impression in this "Golden Girls Hit
the Big Screen." The winter releases aren't getting any better, are they? At
Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 12:30, 2:35, 4:45, 7:05, 9:20; at Showcase: 12:25, 2:35,
4:45, 7:10, 9:25, 11:30.
GROUNDHOG DAY The very great Bill Murray stars with the very awful
Andie MacDowell in a very mediocre script about being stuck in some
small town. Hey, it's Bill, it can't be all bad - can it? At Ann Arbor 1 &
2: 12:45, 2:50, 5, 7:20, 9:40; at Showcase: 12:35, 2:45, 4:55, 7:20, 9:40,
11:45.
HOMEwARD BOUND It's another one of those Milo and Otis animal
movies, but it still might be the best movie to come out this week. At
Showcase: 1, 3, 5, 7:15, 9:15, 11:05.
THE TEmp Lara Flynn Boyle stars in the latest from-hell thriller, in the
tradition of the Roommate From Hell ("Single White Female") and the Cop
From Hell ("Unlawful Entry.") We're sure the Secretary From Hell
installment is just as good as the previous entries in the genre. At
Briarwood: 10, 12:15, 2:25, 4:30, 7:05, 9:15, 11:30; at Showcase: 12:40,
2:55, 5:05, 7:35, 9:50, 11:55.
UmrAMEm HEART Marisa Tomei stars in this Frankie and Johnnyesque
romance; too bad it stars the two most annoying young actors alive, Rosie
Perez and Christian Slater. At Showcase: 12:55, 3:10, 5:25, 7:45, 10:05,
12:15.

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 Briarwood: 10:05, 12, 2, 4:15, 7,
9, 11:30; at Showcase: 12:35, 2:40, 4:45, 7, 9,11.
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; at Showcase: 1:35, 4:15, 7:25, 10:10, 12:30.
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 ("The Crying Game.")
At State: 2, 4:30, 7, 9:30, 11:30.
ENCAmTED APML Just think, you can see three Miranda Richardson
movies on Liberty Street. This "Howards End"-esque drama so sweet
you'll choke, but Richardson again is radiant. At State: 2,4:30, 7, 9:30,
11:30.
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: 1:00, 3:50,
7:05, 10:00, 12:35. At Briarwood: 10:15, 1, 4, 7, 9:35, 11:55.
LOADED WEAPON I We may now pronounce National Lampoon dead.
Good riddance. At Showcase: 1:10, 3:10, 5:10, 7:30, 9:35, 11:25; at
Briarwood: 10:05, 11:45, 1:30, 3:15, 5:05, 7:45, 9:35, 11:30.
MATNEE 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: 12:50, 3, 5:10, 7:25, 9:45, 11:45.
SCENT OF A WomAm The Golden Globe winner for the best picture of
1992. We smell a rat. At Briarwood: 10, 1, 4, 7:15, 10:15; at Showcase: 2,
5, .8, 11.
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.
SOMMERSBY Yet another Hollywood pillaging of a European film, this one
of that favorite French-class hit, "The Return of Martin Guerre." Yet this
one's good, believe it or not, even with Dick Gere in the Depardieu role.
From the director of "Queen of Hearts." At Showcase: 12:25, 2:50, 5:15,
7:45, 10:15, 12:25; at Briarwood: 10, 12:10, 2:30, 4:45, 7:25, 9:50, 11:55.
THE VAAasHmnc George Sluizer sells his soul by directing a dreadful
remake of his own brilliant yet subtitled thriller of a couple years ago. Rent
W"Th vank hina" nt a viden stare near vnu instead At Showcase: 12:30.
