A lot bad about this, but somehow it elicited some smiles

With practically no magic.

People who added this item 305 Average listal rating (190 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.6
Stehako's rating:
I'm assuming this is not the role that got Daniel Craig cast as James Bond.

Derek Jacobi pulls off Bacon pretty great.

Stehako's rating:
Should have placed a hi-lo bet on how many head nods we'd get from boredom.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 765 Average listal rating (434 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.9

I hope you didn't have them for this film.

Usher... acts.

People who added this item 308 Average listal rating (186 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.8
The Borrowers (1997)
They should have borrowed less from tired retreads.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 879 Average listal rating (486 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.9
Lolita (1997)

Wow, did the makers of this film even see the original?
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 176 Average listal rating (117 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.6
These filmmakers are bums of cleverly wills
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 991 Average listal rating (602 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 4.6
Psycho (1998)
A Gus Van Sant experiment gone wrong

Stehako's rating:

Godzilla (1998)
Broderick is terrible, this is a classic example of big-budget movies gone wrong
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 226 Average listal rating (137 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.3
Not the opposite of average
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2524 Average listal rating (1553 ratings) 4.9 IMDB Rating 5.4
Dr. Dolittle (1998)

And this is when Eddie Murphy lost it.

The Big Hit (1998)
The big miss
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2626 Average listal rating (1682 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.5
Antz (1998)
Dreamworks' attempt to compete with Pixar. Nice try, actually no, not even a nice try.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1845 Average listal rating (1080 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.5
About as fourth as good as the original. Not something to be proud of, but at least it was better than Return of Jafar.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 156 Average listal rating (91 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.9
Madeline (1998)
Not bad but also not my kind of movie
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 50 Average listal rating (33 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1
Smoke Signals (1998)
Nothing exactly bad about this movie, it's just really dull.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1099 Average listal rating (666 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.8

Weepy
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2696 Average listal rating (1724 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.7
Zeta Jones is smoking! But that's about the only good thing in this remake
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1877 Average listal rating (1198 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.1
Can't match Disney quality
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 458 Average listal rating (315 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.4
The Siege (1998)

A ridiculous film that's poorly acted and written but still a wild time.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 713 Average listal rating (465 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.1
Willis is the hero, Baldwin is the villain. Classic 90s Hollywood action.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 750 Average listal rating (466 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.5
Novice remake of "Anatomy of a Murder"

Love the UK humor

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1221 Average listal rating (817 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.2
A fun idea for a kids movie but a little too violent for a kids movie
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 347 Average listal rating (187 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.4
The truth is true
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 389 Average listal rating (250 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.9
54 (1998) (1998)


As cool as that club was, this film managed to not make it that, but an awesome job done by Mike Meyers.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1531 Average listal rating (1006 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.1
The Waterboy (1998)


St st st stupid but fun.

Is this an eye patch?

Stehako's rating:

Festen (1998)
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 498 Average listal rating (311 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.6
Theron is simply great with most performances even if this film was destined to strive for the common denominator.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 253 Average listal rating (146 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.8
Simon Birch (1998)

Jim Carrey's biggest, zaniest role ever!
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 141 Average listal rating (74 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.1
A talented young cast carries what could have been a classic outlaw film; but the themes and pacing forces this to be a mostly forgotten film and a classic Hollywood failure. I still enjoyed it as wannabe outlaw myself.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 104 Average listal rating (63 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.6
Clay Pigeons (1998)
Vaughn and Phoenix collaboration number two for the year is less successful but this dark, barely comedy, still entertains enough to see a satisfying ending.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 642 Average listal rating (445 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.5
U.S. Marshals (1998)
An okay attempt of a sequel to a modern classic
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 92 Average listal rating (42 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 5.5
Great writing and improv acting. Downey Jr. is brilliant, the actress are good, too; but the editing and cinematography is dreadful.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 116 Average listal rating (81 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.2
Twilight (1998)
One of the greatest actors of all time can't pull of this snoozy, lazy crime picture. He and Hackman are excellent, but nobody else really works in this and the story is so uninteresting it can't be helped.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 37 Average listal rating (21 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1
Everest (1998)
A classic Imax experience
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1624 Average listal rating (1028 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.6
Dark City (1998)

The new noir.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 125 Average listal rating (76 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.9
Zero Effect (1998)
Pullman and Stiller are great but I felt like it could have been a lot better.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 4666 Average listal rating (3247 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.7
Armageddon (1998)
Hollywood cliche's at their best. The effects are cool and it's still harmless fun in the end.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 124 Average listal rating (81 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.9
Almost Heroes (1998)
A disappointing finale for Farley but enough laughs overall
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1045 Average listal rating (686 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.3

Spacey should negotiate all things.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 94 Average listal rating (65 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
Vaughn and Phoenix turn in memorable performances while Heche seems to struggle so much in her role, more than her character. The final scenes are worth the unnecessarily slow build.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 140 Average listal rating (96 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.5
Dirty Work (1998)
A lot of dead hookers in trunks
