FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

THURSDAY

T H U R S D A Y T H U R S D A Y

PonTr OF No RETURN Why try an American remake of the most
Americanized French movie of all time, "La Femme Nikita"? What's the
point? Oh yeah, to make money. Poor Harvey Keitel must really need the
money. From auteur John Badham ("Bird on a Wire," "The Hard Way.")
At Showcase: 12:15, 2:55, 5:20, 7:50, 10:15, 12:25.
TEENAGE MUTAwr NInJA TuRLes III To complete the trilogy, the
shelled heroes embark on an adventure when they travel back in time to
save Bruce Campbell. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7:00, 9:15, 11:15.

Can you guess which reptile this is? Hint: he's a famous Renaissance artist.
FILMS HOLDING:
ALADDIN The most profitable movie in Disney history. At Showcase:
12:35, 2:40, 4:45, 7.
AmOS AND ANDREW The money whore of 1993, Samuel L. Jackson
("Loaded Weapon I") continues his sell-out in this piss-poor comedy
starring Nicolas Cage. At Showcase: 1:05, 3:15, 5:25, 7:40, 9:55, 12.
CB4 Chris Rock is the latest Saturday Night Live star to turn to feature
films in this rap comedy; even though it steals scenes verbatim from
"Wayne's World," it's no better than "Opportunity Knocks." At Showcase:
1, 3, 5, 7:25, 9:40, 11:50.
TlE CRVING GAME The first movie in history to go first run after playing
on campus first. Six nominations, including Best Supporting Actor. At
Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:45, 10:10, 12:20.
FAUUNG 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: 1:25, 4:00, 7:20, 9:50, 12:10.
A FAR OFF PLACE The third current release from the Disney machine,
this one about some poor tykes lost in a desert. Bonus: it's preceded by a
new Roger Rabbit short called "Trail Mix-Up." At Showcase: 1:30, 4:10,
'7:10, 9:45, 12:10.
FmE i THE SKY A "true story" of alien abduction. Why do space aliens
only visit hicks in the middle of nowhere? With D.B. Sweeney as the ill-
fated hick. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:30, 10, 12:15.
FOREVER YOUNG This remake of "Always" stars Mel Gibson and his butt.
People who like this kind of shit will find this the sort of shit that they like.
At State: 2, 4:30, 7, 9:30, 11:30.
FuRTING Nicole Kidman dances around in her underwear, but don't let
that scare you off. At State: 4:30, 7:00, 11:50.
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, 9:35, 11:45.
HOwARDS END 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 Disney 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.
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 bravissimo performances by Susan Sarandon
and Nick Nolte. At State: Saturday and Sunday at 2; Monday through
Friday at 9:15.
MAD DOG AND GLORY Director John McNaughton ("Henry, Portrait of a
Serial Killer") goes Hollywood with Robert DeNiro, Uma Thurman and the
great Bill Murray. At Showcase: 12:40, 2:55, 5:10, 7:35, 9:50, 11:55.
Scmrr 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: 9:15, 12:15.
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: 12:50, 7:50.
SwuNG KmDs Yes, it's the Nazi musical from Hollywood Pictures. Didn't
Mel Brooks do this already in "Springtime for Hitler"? The big question:
what the hell is Kenneth Branagh doing in this movie? Even worse:
Branagh put Robert Sean Leonard in his upcoming "Much Ado." Be afraid.
At Showcase: 1:20, 4, 7:05, 9:30, 12.
UNFORGuvEN The best Western since "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid," with
Oscar winner for Best Director Clint Eastwood. At Showcase: 9:10, 11:55.
UNTAMED HEART Marisa Tomei stars in this Frankie and Johnnyesque
