22 The List 23 March 5 April 1990

I Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier (PG) (William Shatner, US. 1989) William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy. DeForest Kelley, James Doohan. 107 mins. In which James Tiberius Kirk makes his directorial debut. On the plus side most of the characters are as well written and credible as they were in the television series, albeit with rather more grey hairs. But the plot turns out to be the normal formula hokum. Strathclyde: WMR Film Centre.

I Steel Magnolias (PG) (Herbert Ross, US, 1989) Shirley MacLaine, Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis. Julia Roberts. 117 mins. The downhome tale of a bevy of southern belles who support each other through a combination of hugs and wisecracks. Robert Harling’s stage play, written as a testimony to the courageous womenfolk of his home-town , wends its weepy way onto the big-screen. Loads of local colour and tragedy but you can’t help feeling that you’ve been emotionally manipulated by a bunch of cindy dolls. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge , Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. Central: Allanpark. Caledonian. Strathclyde: UCI Clydebank, UCI East Kilbride.

I Supervixens ( 18) (Russ Meyer, US, 1975) Shari Eubank, Charles Pitts, Uschi Digard. 105 mins. Breasterama time with Russ the sexist. The plot concerns our hero’s flight from a trumped up murder charge and his dalliance with many a substantially-nourished young lady on his way across country. Technically Meyer's an accomplished filmmaker and there‘s a lot of nifty cutting around, not all of it by the censor. Wonder how many folks go to Russ Meyer movies to watch the editing technique. Screening as half of a double-bill with Ulrravixens, though last time we were shown Beyond The Valley Of The Ulrravixens, which opens with the talented Francesca 'Kitten‘ Natividad stirring notorious Nazi Martin Bormann‘s corpse to sexual arousal and sort of takesit from there. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Tango Arid Cash (15) (Andrei Konchalovsky. US, 1989) Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell. Teri Hatcher, Jack Palance. 104 mins. See Review. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge . Cannon Clarkston Road, Cannon Sauchiehall Street. Grosvenor. Edinburgh: Cannon. Central: Cannon. Strathclyde: Cannon, Kelburne, Odeon Hamilton. UCI Clydebank, UCI East Kilbride.

I The Terminator ( 18) (James Came ron. US. 1984) Arnold Schwarzenegger. Michael Biehn. Linda Hamilton. 107 mins. In 2029 machines have all but conquered the planet but a saviour is at hand in the form of a new human leader. The machines respond by sending Schwarzenegger's cyborg back in time to 1984 on a mission to kill the future leader‘s mother. Inventive. excitineg-paced science-fiction adventure with a notable performance from Arnie in his first villainous role. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge.

I Turner and Hooch (PG) (Roger Spottiswoode. US. 1989) Tom Hanks. Beazley. Mare Winningham. 108 mins. Hanks plays an obsessively clean and efficent cop who inherits Hooch the pooch. a massive mastiff. The limited comedy revolves around the dog's ability to drool gallons of ofsaliva and dismantle all obstacles while helping the police with their enquiries. Needless to say. the two form a loving relationship and needless to say the film was a winner in the US. but UK audiences had best hope that talents like Hanks. Spottiswoode and even Beazlcy get better scripts in the future. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr. UCI Clydebank. UCI East Kilbridc.

I The War of the Roses (15) e (Danny DcVito. US. 1989) Michael Douglas. Kathleen Turner. Danny DeVito. Marianne Sagebrccht. 116 mins. See Feature. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge. Cannon Clarkston Road. Grosvenor.

Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. Central:

Allanpark. Cannon. Strathclyde: Cannon.

La Scala, Odeon Ayr, Odeon Hamilton. UCI Clydebank, UCI East Kilbride. WMR Film Centre.

I Weekend At Bernie's (12) (Ted Kotcheff. US, 1989) Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverrnan. Catherine Mary Stewart. Terry Kiser. 99 mins. Two insurance company employees have wacky weekend. Must I go on? Having been rewarded by their shady boss with a Labor Day holiday at his beach house , the pair are perplexed to find their mentor dead on arrival. Cripes, the other guests are about to arrive so the chums try to pass him off as an ongoing concern to their fellow house guests. Meanwhile. a hitman seems intent on finishing off their already defunct boss. So the cadaveric-centred capers continue. As I said before. must I go on? Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon.

I What Have I Done To Deserve This? (Pedro Almodovar, Spain, 1984) Carmen Maura, Luis Hostalot. 100 mins. From the camera that brought you Women On The Verge. . ., an earlier, more surreal vision of desperation, sex and bizarre familial interactions in middle-class Spain. The central role is again played by a distracted Maura, this time as a housewife coping with her depression and her ghastly family by taking a wee snort of cleaning fluid with her prescribed amphetamines. Another gem. Glasgow: GFT.

I When Harry MetSaily (15) (Rob Reiner, US, 1989) Billy Crystal. Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher. 95 mins. Thoughtful sex comedy has Crystal (Harry). Ryan (Sally) and Reiner on top form, with highly entertaining results. Nora Ephron‘s witty screenplay intelligently ponders the possibility of male/female friendship with or without romance, and guess which side wins. . . Annie Hall for the late 19805, with now-famous faked orgasm. Edinburgh: Dominion.

I Wings Of Desire (15) (Wim Wenders, W. Germany .1987) Bruno Ganz, Otto Sander, Solveig Dommartin, Peter Falk. 127 mins. Restless angel Ganz on duty over Berlin takes a tip from American movie star and former angel Falk on the possibilities of crossing over, and follows his mentor’s path to consummate his relationship with beautiful circus acrobat Dommartin. Gorgeous black-and-white photography and a sensitive feel for the people and places of Berlin grace this thematically rich and uncharacteristically optimistic slice of Wenders enchantment. Highly recommended. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I The Witches oiEastwick (18) (George Miller. US. 1987) Jack Nicholson. Cher. Susan Sarandon. 118 mins. Suffocating in the prim tranquility of a small town in New England. three single women set their collective sights on conjuring up the perfect Mr Right. Next morninga mysterious stranger suddenly appears. as if in answer to their prayers, and beginsto charm the pants off them. But the ripe. randy and rakish Daryl van Home isthe devil in disguise. and there is a price to pay for their pleasure. A joyous. diabolical romp. with Nicholson having the time of his life. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I AWorld Apart ( 15) (Chris Menges. UK. 1988) Barbara Hershey. Jodhi May. Linda Mvusi. David Suchet. 112 mins. Based on the experiences of screenwriter Shawn Slovo‘s teenage years in the South Africa of the early Sixties. the film follows the arrest of her political activist mother and the tensions this causes in their relationship. However. the young girl‘s growing awareness of the injustices of apartheid leads her to some sense of solidarity with her mum. Brilliantly acted treatment of the evils of the Johannesburg regime. which never opts for preachiness but offers an honest complexity that makes it all the more engrossing. Strathclyde: Paisley Arts Centre.
