‘Scent of a Woman’ – ’92 Cinema Revue
"Scent of a Woman" can be seen as enjoyable, but it wafts in the air for too long to leave a lasting reminder. ★★★
‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ – ’92 Christmas Cinema Revue

‘A Few Good Men’ – ’92 Cinema Revue
"A Few Good Men" is an acting showcase with performances with an A-List cast bringing their A-game. ★★★★½
‘The Bodyguard’ – ’92 Cinema Revue
"The Bodyguard" is a better soundtrack than a movie, brought down by a predictable plot and a lack of chemistry between the two leads. ★★
