Tom Arnold is a crack-up in this messy film.

J Love was amazing even as a kid.

Chan's big US debut proves he can hold his own, the film itself was pretty awful.

Sinbad can be a funny family comedian, too bad the filmmakers suck.

She's the One (1996)

Petty's soundtrack might be the only solid thing about this dialogue'd film.

The Arrival (1996)

Sheen attempts the serious after a series of comedies.

Trees Lounge (1996)
Buscemi doin' what he does best... it's too bad the film falls flat.
Stehako's rating:

Probably my least favorite Murray role, but he's still awesome!

The Phantom (1996)
Interest in Billy Zane's Phantom sunk faster than the Titanic... because he was in that movie... but I like that movie.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 140 Average listal rating (85 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 5.7
A very disappointing sequel
Stehako's rating:


Too strange as a kid to really enjoy the adaptation.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 422 Average listal rating (260 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.9
I'll partly blame it on the fact that I didn't see this until I was an adult; but the songs in this are terrible and acting by the boy is worse. Luckily enough of the Muppet humor is still present for this to be deemed slightly entertaining but a disappointment after the lovely Muppet Christmas Carol

Citizen Ruth (1996)


Alexander Payne's first is his weakest. But I did like the ending.

People who added this item 960 Average listal rating (622 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.2


A decent remake of the French film/play "La Cale Aux Follies"

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 362 Average listal rating (243 ratings) 4.3 IMDB Rating 4.5
Bio-Dome (1996)

More like Bio-Dumb!
Still, you can't fault a movie that includes an appearance from Tenacious D.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 487 Average listal rating (330 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.9
The Fan (1996)
Not a big fan of this slow burner that never scalds.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 452 Average listal rating (268 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
The Crucible (1996)
Day-Lewis brings respect to this somewhat dull adaptation

People who added this item 913 Average listal rating (600 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1


Peter Jackson creates a strange ode to cheesy ghost flicks starring The Michael J Fox in, strangely, his last live-action movie role.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 89 Average listal rating (57 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.6
A dialogue-heavy tale that frustrates as much is it curates. None of the characters are entirely likable, which makes it a little more realistic, I suppose.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 175 Average listal rating (103 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3
Pacino goes Richard III all up in this doc. Many years later Spacey (who is in this) will star in 'House of Cards' a modern story of Richard III.
Stehako's rating:


Long title, silly movie.

Eraser (1996)

Big movie, bad taste, cool guns, Arnold.
Stehako's rating:
Just like watching the show... only not as funny
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 175 Average listal rating (118 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.3
A lot of shooting, a lot of talking but not a lot of plot.
Stehako's rating:

Behind-the-scenes look at what happened after Carson retired from late-night. The performances, aside from Kathy Bates, were awkward. It was very made-for-TV; but kept interest.

Marvin's Room (1997)



Director: Jerry Zaks
His 1st movie
My 1st movie watched from the director


This cast is stacked, but none of them deliver a memorable performance. Diane Keaton comes closest and DeNiro's role is a total waste. The story is about relationships, and the sister relationship is the only one that pays off in the end.

Actually the most impressive part of the miss is the fact that this unknown director, Jerry Zaks, somehow was able to get all these great actors together for a very average movie.

2 interesting days in the valley, true, but they never amount to much as the climax arrives too soon. I felt like only half the story was told by the time we got to the end.

Basquiat (1996)
Jeffrey Wright is fantastic in his debut lead. This is a film that wants to be extra artistic but gets in the way of itself with too many conventional ways.

Small movie, big taste.

I'll admit, I enjoyed this sappy tale. See it with your kids.

Another very strange Jarmish film with an all star cast and a great ending.
