I will provide you with useless tnformation, the outcomes of my silly-surveys and petty-polls and will generally leave you feelling more than ~lightllly amused; or so I think My fiN official Press survey this semester consisted of asking (or rather pestering) people to tell me what it is that they hated most and loved most about being back hear at good 'ole SUNY, Cortland.

By now most of us have probably seen movies such as Beaches or WorkinR Girl, but for those of us who have not, I will review them. Beaches is based on the best selling novel written by Iris Dart. It is the story of two women who meet as children on a beach in Atlantic City, and how they maintain an on-off friendship throughout adulthood. Beaches stars Bette Midler in one of her finest performances to date. She plays a struggling actress who eventually makes it big through- out the course of her life. It also stars Barbara Hershey, a rich, well educated girl who wants to find herself, outside of having every- thing given to her. Beaches is very touching. It will make you \laugh a little. cry a little\ be- cause after all, \that's the glory of love!\ Also out now is Wcn·kinR Girl . This film is styled in the fashion of the 1986 hit The Secret of My Success. It is about a struggling secretary from Staten Island, played by Melanie Griffith (no relation). who devises a plan to climb the corporate ladder by posing as her own boss, played by Sigomey Weaver. It is a romantic, comical, entertaining film which stars Harrison Ford, as a media consolent who helps Griffitl! on her road to success The film has been nominated for best picture. Previews this week include: Torch Song Trilo[?y which is based on the award winning Broadway play. It is about the ups and downs of the life of a drag queen, and his struggle for love, jealousy, and self doubt in the 70's. This film stars Harvey Fier- stein, Mathew Broderick, and Anne Bancroft. If you were wondering what ever became of • 'Mr.Saturday Night Fever' himself-John Tra- volta, then wonder no more. He is in a new film titled The Experts. It is about two experts who know what's hip in America, and who are recruited to open up a typical American night club in Russia. What they don't know is that the club is a training ground for com- mie spys. The film also stars charles martin smith ( Untouch- ables). Also coming is a new romantic comedy titled Her Alibi . This film stars Tom Selleck as a mystery writer who becomes the alibi of a beautiful woman. played by model Paulina Porizkova, who has been accused of murder. VCR releases include: Die Hard starring Bruce Willis. It is packed with action from beginning to end, taking place in a forty story building in L.A .. Also out is Bull Durham . It is another romantic comedy about America's other favorite pastime: Baseball and sex team up in this comedy about life, love, and the high hard fast- ball. It stars Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon. Until next week, 'Til see you at the cinema!\ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Members needed Join the Cortland State Emergency Squad • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • SUNY Cortland's student run : emergency medical service No experience needed We will train . ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
