With "The Sixth Sense" one gets the idea the audiences has lost their senses

Top Ten Films
for First Part of August

      Maybe it's a good idea we're going on vacation this week because the Force has taken a vacation from the Top Ten. The summer's megahit "Star Wars - Episode One - The Phantom Menace" has fallen out of the Top Ten for the first time since it debuted three months ago. Speaking of vacations, the entire movie industry seems to have taken a vacation from values and producing worthwhile films. The latest is another Bruce Willis' vehicle that falls short of meaning, but enough gore and violence to disturb us. Yet that is mild compared to the fare that follows with only "Runaway Bride" and the new comer "The Iron Giant" lending any credence to decency as the rest play on blatant sex, violence, intelligence-insult, sexual innuendo and a diminishing of moral values. That's entertainment?!? For the Top Ten reviews for the first part of August prepared by the NCCB, click on MOVIES AND MORALS
