  • Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

    A charming and amiable Disney live-action feature (1989), directed by first-timer Joe Johnston, about an inventor (Rick Moranis) who devises a gizmo that accidentally shrinks his kids and two of their friends (Amy O'Neill, Robert Oliveri, Jared Rushton, and Thomas Brown) to quarter-inch height. more...
  • Honey

    Played with pizzazz by Jessica Alba (TV's Dark Angel), 22-year-old Honey struggles to teach hip-hop and break dancing to the kids in her inner-city neighborhood in an energetic musical that's like Flashdance with a social conscience, or Saturday Night Fever with an expanded one. more...

    This epic, compulsively watchable 170-minute documentary (1994), about two Chicago inner-city basketball whizzes, William Gates and Arthur Agee, striving to land the right grades and scholarships to make it to the big time (and stay there), is a heady dose of the American dream and the American nightmare combined—a numbing investigation of how one point on an exam or one basket or turnover in a game can make all the difference in a family's fortunes. more...

    Tian Zhuangzhuang's 1985 feature, set in the remote wilds of Tibet with a cast of local nonprofessionals, is a breathtaking spectacle in 'Scope and color, perhaps the most personal of all the “Fifth Generation” Beijing films to have emerged from the People's Republic of China (at least until Tian's subsequent The Blue Kite). more...
