HOME ENTERTAINMENT : Laser-Disc Format Still Alive--For Now

June 16, 1995|DENNIS HUNT | TIMES STAFF WRITER

What's New on Video: "Disclosure" (Warner): This drama about corporate intrigue, directed by Barry Levinson and adapted from the Michael Crichton bestseller, is built around a novel twist--reverse sexual harassment (man sues woman). Michael Douglas plays a married executive who files a harassment suit against his boss (Demi Moore), a cunning, cold-blooded type resembling the Sharon Stone character in "Basic Instinct." But that famed, steamy "harassment" scene doesn't ring true. Neither does Moore, at her sexpot best, as a high-level corporate boss. Still, the movie is sleazy fun, like a good trashy novel.

"Drop Zone" (Paramount): A federal agent (Wesley Snipes) goes after the sky-diving crooks who murdered his brother, so he has to learn to sky-dive too. The sky-diving scenes are thrilling but they can't quite mask the feeble plot. All that action, without a convincing story line, eventually loses its impact. Still, Snipes' wise-cracking character should delight his fans. Gary Busey co-stars as a renegade DEA agent.
