  • Treasure Planet

    Robert Louis Stevenson’s adventure on the high seas has moved to the boundless ocean of outer space in the Disney studio’s candidate for Thanksgiving box-office supremacy. The action sequences are spectacular, while doing justice to Stevenson’s classic story — a joy for kids of all ages.
  • The Crime of Father Amaro

    Not what you’d expect from its title, if you’ve been a follower of the Catholic Church’s recent trials, director Carlos Carrera’s film slings stones at the sin and crime-stained glass windows of the church much like an unsympathetically portrayed mob does at a cranky but lovable atheist.
  • The Emperor's Club

    The Emperor's Club is a nerd's version of Dead Poets Society, mimicking the "new kid at an uptight boys’ school-caring teacher" formula, but lacking the wonder, revelation and charisma of the latter. Kevin Kline's character, meant to be endearing, is about as interesting as a slide rule.

  • Solaris

    Whether Steven Soderbergh's version of Stanislaw Lem's story is about a man who creates an alternate life for himself by using the creative forces of his grief or about a planet whose strange powers may not be benign doesn't seem to matter once the meditative pace starts to seem sluggish — with George Clooney and Natascha McElhone.
  • Metropolis

    Quaint, pictorially vivid and quite mad, Fritz Lang's 1927 film has been restored to 124 minutes, with some footage previously unseen in the United States added and several missing scenes described by title cards — with Brigitte Helm as the seductive robotrix whose mission is to topple Metropolis.
