The Underneath – Review

May 1, 1995

The Underneath wants to rise above “stylish thriller” status. It wants to harken back to the days of film noir and tries to avoid The Pelican Brief Club.

Heavenly Creatures – Review

May 1, 1995

Worldly Juliet draws out the imagination and passion from shy Pauline and together they invent a universe of celebrity saints and Gothic heroes.

Tank Girl – Review

April 1, 1995

Tank Girl, the latest film converted from a cult comic book, remains just that, a comic. The characters are as one dimensional as their paper prototypes.

Muriel’s Wedding – Review

April 1, 1995

Muriel’s Wedding, at times tragic and moving, is elsewhere hilarious and heartwarming without ever manipulating or stooping to a predictable, mawkish level.

The Black Box – Review

March 1, 1995

You won’t find a better representation of Wax Trax! than Revolting Cocks’ “Attack Ships on Fire,” with Ministry and Front 242 on stage with Trent Reznor.

Shallow Grave – Review

March 1, 1995

Shallow Grave’s not-so-subtle shifts accelerate the film into a careening series of mind-bending hair-pin plot twists and turns.

MTV Year in Rock – Review

March 1, 1995

The best and worst of 1994, distilled down to only the bare essentials, and delivered as only Kurt Loder and Tabitha Soren could.

In The Mouth of Madness – Review

March 1, 1995

John Carpenter takes a cast of character actors and finishes what Wes Craven started in New Nightmare, with its recursive themes and interpretive subjects.

Demon Knight – Review

March 1, 1995

This little festering gem of a film fits right in with such wonderfully mad shows as Creepshow and The Evil Dead 2. Get the soundtrack too.

Reservoir Dogs – Review

February 1, 1995

While not nearly as slick as Pulp Fiction, it’s just as packed with raw violence tempered with sweet, mundane dialogue and incongruous hilarity.

Ed Wood – Review

November 1, 1994

Lovingly shot in a dreamy, period-accurate black and white, the film follows Wood, played exquisitely by Johnny Depp, as he seeks fortune in tinsel town.

Natural Born Killers – Review

September 1, 1994

In keeping with the Bonnie and Clyde tradition, the pair teases the cops by leaving witnesses alive to tell the tales of their violent exploits.

The Crow – Review

June 1, 1994

All the violence and action anyone could hope for. The story flow with violent action, then flashes backs to the quiet, loving times he shared with Shelly.

The Crow – Review

June 1, 1994

Strangely enough, I found myself focusing on the music during the slow parts. If nothing else, go buy the soundtrack.

Kalifornia – Review

February 1, 1994

The brutally violent story of how psychotic killer, Early (Brad Pitt), and his dim-witted, child-like girlfriend Adele (Juliette Lewis), terrorize an unsuspecting couple.

Pantera – Vulgar Video – Review

February 1, 1994

One of the most over-the-top rock videos ever. Even if I wasn’t a mega-colossal Pantera fan, I’d still be absolutely consumed by the home video tour footage.

True Romance – Review

February 1, 1994

True Romance is an uproarious, gory, rollercoaster ride. It’s a heart warming, sexy, romantic comedy trapped in the body of an action movie.
