Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (PG) (Michael Pressman. US. 1991) Paige Turco. David Warner. Ernie Reyeer. 87 mins. A quick return for the original shell-suits. although with less plot and less violence than the original. The evil Shredder has decided to grow a couple of mutants ofhis own. and it seems thatonly our four adolescent amphibians can save the day with the odd pizza reference and a truly dire ‘Ninja Rap‘ (with the painfully embarrassing Vanilla Ice).

ITenninalor 2: Judgement Day ( 15) (James Cameron. US. 1991) Arnold Swarzenegger. Linda Hamilton. Edward Furlong. Robert Patrick. 136 mins. The most expensive film ever made. In a reprogrammed role that says much about his changed image since the first movie. Arnie becomes the underdog fightingto protect mother and child from another more advanced cyborg. With an element of uncontrived human compassion lurking throughout the gloriously expensive action sequences. as Swarzenegger‘s cyborg develops human feelings. this is more than just a $100 million fairground ride.

UCI East Kilbride. I Thelma a Louise (15) (Ridley Scott. US. 1991) Susan Sarandon. Geena Davis. Harvey Keitel. Michael Madsen. 129 mins. The buddy/road movie genres are turned on their heads as Sarandon and Davis grasp the steering wheel and head offleaving a trail ofmurder and mayhem in their wake. On one level. the film isthe critical catalyst that had the feminists cheering and put the stars on the coverof Time magazine; just as importantly. it's an accessible piece ofentertainment with excellent central performances. Glasgow: Cannon Sauchichall Street. I Trop Belle PourToll Too BeautifulFor You/(l8) (Bertrand Blier. France. 1989) Gerard Dcpardieu. Josiane Balasko. Carole Bouquet. 91 mins. Massive French hit offers a characteristic twist on the old eternal threesome scenario. Depardieu plays the succesful owner of a car showroom. envied by all for his beautiful wife (Bouquet). who falls in love with his dumpy secretary (Balasko). A film of commendable openness about the needs of the senses and men‘s facility for emotional expression. its true achievement is how it turns the stuffof farce into an intense hybrid ofwistful comedy and romantic passion. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. ITnily. Madly. Deeply (PG) (Anthony Minghella. UK. 1990) Juliet Stevenson. Alan Rickman. Bill Paterson. 103 mins. See preview. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

classic. with some extremely scary and erotic moments. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I The Wild Bunch (Sam Peckinpah. CS. 1969) William Holden. Ernest Borgninc. Robert Ryan. 145 mins. The bloody but emotionally sensitive tale of a battle tothe death between rough-riding Texans and Mexican revolutionaries. A classic and highly influential Western. which createsa paradoxical beauty from explicitly violent ingredients. Glasgow: GET.

I Wild Al Heart ( 18) (David Lynch. US. 1990) Nicholas Cage. Laura Dern. Diane Ladd. Willem Dafoe. 127 mins. Lynch‘s much-hyped Cannes prize-winner turns out to be weird and wondrous in itsown way. if not quite as cohesive as the earlier Blue Velvet. Cage and Dern are the energetic young lovers on the run. pursued by ultrastrange hitman Dafoe on a sometimes comic. sometimes disturbing. trail towards the ultimate rendezvous with Elvis and the Wizard of Oz. Aside from lovingly detailing the pernicious influence

of pop kitsch upon our very consciousness

however. the movie isn't really about anything. even if it is a helluva trip. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I The Wizard Ol 02 (PG) (Victor Fleming. US. 1939) Judy Garland. Frank Morgan. Ray Bolger. Bert Lahr. Jack Haley. Margaret Hamilton. Toto. 102 mins. Miserable Dorothy runs away from home but is soon whisked tip into a magical land where her adventures teach herthat happiness is to be found in her own back yard. Classic stuffindecd. just chockfulof great songs. characterisation and memorably garish design. Perhaps marginally less enjoyable for the curmudgeonly element rooting for the Wicked Witch OfThe West though. Strathclyde: UCI East Kilbride.

I Young Soul Rebels ( 18) ( IsaacJulien. UK. 1991) Valentine .\'onyela. Mo Sesay. Dorian Healy. Frances Barber. 105 mins. Part buddy movie. part murder story. part socio-political tapestry. Julien‘s film follows the fortunes of two black friends who run a pirate radio station and who are investigating the death of a young. gay friend. Meanwhile the long. hot summer of 1977 and the jingoistic fervour ofthe Silver Jubilee look set to bring racial tensions to a violent head. A welcome sign of life in an ailing British film industry.
