  • Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade

    This 1999 addition to the anime corpus, directed by Hiroyuki Okiura, postulates an alternate ending to World War II — in which Japan is conquered by Nazi Germany, not the United States. With its hyper-real animation and mildly speculative storyline, it actually flattens out the possibilities of the form.
  • Harrison's Flowers

    A script that expects us to buy a 1940s-style love story in the middle of 20th century war realism is a paradox with a pretty face, analogous to the gap between its title and the gruesome subject matter it contains — with Andie MacDowell and David Strathairn.
  • Now that’s kosher

    Located inside the Jewish Community Center, Milk and Honey is a gourmet restaurant that just happens to be kosher. The menu is seafood and vegetarian, and the food is as good and as varied as at any comparable restaurant. Our reviewer loved the lusciously red ahi tuna and the pistachio-crusted sea bass, both perfectly prepared. The selection of vegetarian entrées is enough to rejuvenate the diet of even lifelong vegetarians, and some of the menu items are so good, you won't be able to resist them on a return visit.
  • Blade II

    Blade (Wesley Snipes) – a blend of vigilante gunslinger, Bruce Lee, samurai and vampire wrapped in the black skin and leather of Shaft-meets-Batman — is back. Harder, darker and deeper than its predecessor, director Guillermo del Toro’s film abandons the day-walking gleam of the first Blade for shadowy lairs. But this sequel is still sharp — and it cuts deep.
  • Spike & Mike's 2001 Classic Festival of Animation

    This is the respectable annual Spike & Mike, not that Sick & Twisted crap, and the offerings this year are of a consistently high quality. The funny stuff may not be as funny as it could be and the poignant stuff may border on the precious, but it's a well-paced 90 minutes that’s continually impressive.
  • E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

    After 20 years, Steven Spielberg's E.T. is back, with "never-before-seen footage, state-of-the-art computer-generated enhancements and a digitally remixed sound track." But go see it because it's a film geared toward kids, without lowering its standards because of it.
