I W liege (18) (Quentin Tarantino. US. 1992) Harvey Keitel. Tim Roth. Michael Madsen. 100 mins. A gang of hoods. known only to each other by colour-coded nicknames. meets at an abandoned warehouse to figure how out their rigorously planned heist went so drastically wrong. The best debut in years from writer-director Tarantino. whose stylish violence seduces the audience into complicity. Brilliant in every sense of the word. Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. I Scent of a m (15) (Martin Brest. US. 1992) Al Pacino. Chris O'Donnell. James Rebhom. 156 mins. A blind. alcoholic ex- serviceman and a scholarship college boy spend Thanksgiving Weekend in New York and find themselves in a series of funny and moving adventures which finally lead them to come to terms with their true selves. Overlong in its opening and closing scenes. this is still one terrific movie. with what is possibly Pacino's best performance in a distinguished career. Glasgow: GFT. I Singles (12) (Cameron Crowe. US. 1992) Bridget Fonda. Campbell Scott. Kyra Sedgwick. Matt Dillon. 90 mins. The way it's been sold you'd think it was some total guitar hardcore odyssey vibe. but in fact it's a honey-coated romance that just happens to take place in Seattle. There‘s a high recognition factor for twentysomethings in the audience as they watch the ensemble cast find its way around misdirected crushes. parties from hell and crap gigs. Watch your life flash before you. Central: MacRobert. I St. W83 (PG) (Gorge Lucas. US. 1977) Mark Hamill. Carrie Fisher. Harrison Ford. Alec Guinness. 121 mins. A long time ago in a galaxy far away. a band of young heroes fight to rescue a princess and save her planet from destruction. Hugely influential and successful space epic: a modern fairytale with laser swords. Glasgow: Odeon.

I Super Idarie Ins (PG) (Rocky Morton/Annabel Jankel. US. 1993) Bob Hoskins. John Leguizamo. Dennis Hopper. 105 mins. The film of the video game featuring Italian pipe-menders plumbs new and tedious depths. In a parallel world. they try to rescue a princess from a lizard-like baddie. but our heroes are lost in over—designed sets and variable special effects. More holes than a drain-cover. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr. All UCls.

IT WMWNPGHStuan Gillard. US. 1992) Elias Koteas. Paige Turco. Stuart Wilson. Another Turtles movie! A prospect as appealing as a pizza slice reheated for the third time. This time. they're back in 17th century Japan in order to save April. Fresh locations won’t stall the diminishing returns as kid's fadish attentions have turned elsewhere. In

cinemas. those turtles are going to squashed under the dinosaurs feet. ninja skills or not. General release.

I The W (15) (George Sluizer. US. 1993) Jeff Bridges. Kiefer Sutherland. Nancy Travis. 110 mins. Throwing subsequent credibility out of the window. Dutch director Sluiaer goes to Hollywood to remake his own classic. but agrees to a screenplay that removes all of the subtleties of his original chiller. Boyfriend searches for girlfriend who disappeared at shopping centre. only to come into contact with abductor - that much is the same. but one can only compare the disasterous American decisions with the elements that made them want to do it again in the first place. Glasgow: Odeon.
