W E D N E S D A Y

"Amos and Andrew" promises to be the worst movie of the year.
*FILMS HOLDING:
ALADDIN The most profitable movie in Disney history. At Showcase:
12:35, 2:40,.4:45, 7.
ARMY OF DARKNESS Sam Raimi's sequel to "Evil Dead 2" is just as
mindless, just as dumb, and just as offensive - in other words, it's the best
time at the movies in years. At Showcase: 1:10, 7:05.
THE CRYING GAME The first movie in history to go first run after playing
on campus first. Six nominations, including Best Supporting Actor. At
Showcase: 12:25, 2:40, 5:05, 7:45, 10:10, 12:20.
* FALLING DowN We're as mad as hell, and we're not going to take
pretentious movies like this anymore. Director Joel Schmucker exploits all
your worst fears and fails to say anything Significant about Modern Times.
At Showcase: 12:30, 2:55, 5:20, 7:50, 10:20, 12:39.
A FEw GOOD MEN Fortunately, Rob Reiner's latest lowest common
denominator blockbuster received only a Few nominations. At Showcase:
9:30, 12:15.
GROUNDHOG DAY Not as dumb as it looks, this hit comedy is probably the
best Bill for your buck since "Stripes." At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 12:30, 2:45, 5,
7:15, 9:40, 11:50.
HOwARDS EmD Nine Oscar nominations, but it deserves 19. Do see it. At
Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 1:15, 4:15, 7, 9:40.
HOMEwARD BOUND This dog-and-cat adventure movie might have been
watchable if they didn't make the animals talk. We hear the under-six
crowd loves it, however. At Showcase: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11.
LOADED WEAPON I We may now pronounce National Lampoon dead.
Good riddance. At State: 2, 4:30, 7, 9:15, 11.
LORENzO'S OIL Director George Miller ("Mad Max") really can do it all.
This potential disease-of-the-week schlock becomes an intense, brilliant
drama in Miller's hands, with bravissitno performances by Susan Sarandon
and Nick Nolte. At State: 2, 4:30, 7:10, 9:45.
SCENT OF A WOMAN The Golden Globe winner for the best picture of
1992 will not win the Oscar for best picture. Even the Academy isn't that
dumb. At Showcase: 3:15, 9:15, 12:15.
SOmmmERSBY Yet another Hollywood pillaging of a European fihn, 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: 1:30, 4:10, 7:10,
9:35, 11:55.
UNTAMED HEAm Marisa Tomei stars in this Frankie and Johnnyesque
0 romance; too bad it stars the two most annoying young actors alive, Rosie
