4 WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, 1998 APPLAUSE THE SALINA JOURNAL Mini Video Reviews 1998 Cox News Service (The following recent video releases were reviewed by members of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution staff.) • "Playing God" (R) — How is this a lousy movie? Let us count the ways. 1. Its star, David Duchovny, can't act. Here, as a disgraced, drug-addicted surgeon who becomes the house doctor for a Los Angeles counterfeiting ring, he expresses every feeling — from fear to desire — in the same bemused, laconic tone. 2. He's the best thing about the movie. 3. Oy, the writing! Grade: F —Doug Hamilton • "A Rat's Tale" (G) — It's hard to imagine American kids raised on video games and "Star Wars" giving a rat's you- know-what about this German import featuring a cast of rodent marionettes trying to save their neighborhood (the city sewers) from an evil developer. The human cast includes Lauren Hutton, Jerry Stiller and Beverly D'Angelo. They are not, it must be said, doing their best work. Grade: D+ —Eleanor Ringel • "Close Encounters of the Third Kind: Collector's Edition" (PG) — Here's the version Steven Spielberg always wanted, a mix of the expanded TV version and the "Special Edition." (This latest cut nicely leaves out the tacky footage of Richard Dreyfuss inside the mother ship.) More than 20 years after it came out, the film retains its power to surprise and awe. It's available in two VHS versions, wide-screen and pan-and-scan ($13.95). The laserdisc, which includes a 140-minute "making of documentary, is $79.95. Grade: A —Steve Murray RECENT & RECOMMENDED • "Alien Resurrection" (R) — Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) comes back as a clone in this flawed but interesting entry in the franchise. Grade B- • "Mouse Hunt" (PG) — Nathan Lane and Lee Evans play "Home Alone" with a resourceful mouse. Grade B- • "A Personal Journey With Martin Scorsese Through American Movies" (unrat- ed) — The director's engaging overview of film through the '60s is like a cinematic candy shop. Grade: A • "Don King: Only in America" (unrated) — Vinj Rhames renders the promot er's cartoonish persona witt believable traces of humanity with a script that's hilarious — and unprintable. Grade: A- • "Mrs. Brown" (PG) — Oscar nominee Judi Dench gives a glorious performance as Queen Victoria, whose friendship with a Scotsman (Billy Connolly) eases her out of her long mourning. Grade: A- I' I' I ol I'« I oH I I el ' ' ' ol ' ' ' RIB EYE STEAK Includes salad and choice of potato.
