Classical composer Eric Zeisl had a tough time living in mid-20th century Los Angeles. The somber, heavy-browed Austrian, who left Nazi-dominated Europe in 1938, stated that the two things he hated most in this world were Hitler and the sun. He was...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday January 30, 1998 With the Titanic, it was a plain old iceberg that did it in. But with "Deep Rising's" brand-new $487.6-million pleasure ship the Argonautica, it's immense sea serpents lurking in the depths of the South China Sea, surfacing...
FOR THE TIMESFriday March 6, 1998 Warner Bros., which probably knows what it feels like to be persecuted and unloved (especially after a year like last year), has put its waning hopes and diminished expectations behind traditional values--one, at any rate:...

TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 25, 1997 No, Harrison Ford isn't the president, not even a candidate for the job, but given the chance, who wouldn't vote for him in a Beltway minute? A hero with a human face, Ford projects both rectitude and concern while playing...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday September 26, 1997 Few movie spectacles are more satisfying than great performers playing deadly rivals, than natural-born antagonists going at it fang and claw, so to speak. "The Edge" has such a rivalry going, but it's not quite what you...

TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 10, 1998 "Small Soldiers" is a little boy's fantasy of toys come to life. And like small boys it is often charming and funny, occasionally malicious, and finally too focused on gizmos and effects for its own good. What if,...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday September 19, 1997 Fascinated by the spectacle of fallible men and fallen women trapped in a corrupt and heartless world that's too cold to care, filmmakers in every generation have never stopped reinventing film noir. From 1940s classics...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday December 11, 1998 No disrespect intended to the proud Son'a people but, hey, where are the Borg when you need them? It was the terrifying and thoroughly alien Borg who made the last "Star Trek" film, "First Contact," one of the best...
FOR THE TIMESFriday August 27, 1999 Movies like "The 13th Warrior" aren't meant for prime-time consumption. You should shove them into your system on a Saturday afternoon, the way you gobble a hot dog at a ballpark. Thinking too much about the contents will ruin...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday May 7, 1999 Oh, to be a young teenage boy with the prospect of "The Mummy" before him. A silly and cartoonish remake of the 1932 horror classic starring Boris Karloff, this very modern "Mummy" has all the elements dear to the hearts...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 23, 1999 "The Haunting" is such a feeble frightfest that even its characters seem irked at it. "You brought us here to scare us, is that it?" is the disbelieving reaction of the lovely Theo (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a sentiment that people...

TIMES FILM CRITICFriday August 4, 2000 Like a demented salesman, invisible man Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon) keeps trying to convince us of the virtues of not being seen. "You have no idea how much fun this is," he says, adding later, "You have no idea what it's...
