A glance at a few new videos gives some good pointers for summer style. Shorter hair and lots of silver crosses are among the leading looks for guys. Major "dos" to wear with cut-offs are a new twist for girls. David Bowie, Jon Bon Jovi and Jade, the all-girl group, are some names influencing the new styles. Shiny Suits: David Bowie jumps off a building in his video, "Jump They Say," but he sure looks good doing it.

To watch the new "Rollerball" is to understand why John McTiernan would be tempted to rework the 1975 Norman Jewison original. The earlier film was set in a future in which an ultra-violent sport served as an outlet for a world in which other violence had been banned. Since the day of extreme sports has arrived--in a world more violent than ever--there was no need to set it in the future.

If any of your talkative friends get to "Basic" before you do, don't worry about them giving the plot away. They won't be able to. For though it's made with reasonable efficiency, this John Travolta-starring military thriller about murky doings in the jungles of Panama is so unashamedly confusing, so intent on piling twist upon twist upon twist, it makes your head hurt just trying to figure out what's happened.
