June 13 - June 19, 1997

Y eah, so like Con Air has been getting a lot of explosure lately. Or exposure, whatever. This week we've got four, count 'em four, reviews of that testosterone-torqued flick. Can you believe that? Here's what they say, roughly, and you can link if you wanna read more:

  1. It chomps on The Lost World

  2. It's brutally Airheaded, and that aint no Con

  3. It beats The Rock but can't beat scissors or paper or The Longest Yard

  4. It's secretly a gay movie full of tantalizing man-flesh

We've also got another Lost World review in case you've been on a deserted tropical island and haven't seen it yet. If you're the type who prefers French horns to Triceratops horns, try this interview with Brassed Off writer/director Mark Herman instead.

Don't forget to check out our Vid-A-Go-Go article about good "guy movies," our Reel World update on the latest projects of John Carpenter, Ridley Scott and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and our incisive short-review Film Clips.

Talk Back
If you're one of the few who didn't think Volcano blew, The Lost World bit, or The Fifth Element was one element too many, here's the forum to defend your opinion--crazy though it may be.
