Thumbs up for 'Eye For An Eye'
Eye For An Eye is an
extraodinary movie starring Sally
Fields and Kieffer Sutherland.
Sutherland portrays a demented
sex offender and Fields portrays
a vengeful mother after her
daughter’s killer. The police are
of no help to Fields in her quest.
Once she finds her daughter’s
killer, Sutherland, she follows
him around for a few days and
tries to warn another w(»nan to
steer clear of him.
Unfortunately the woman
doesn’t heed Fields’ warning.
Fields and her family live in a
Los Angeles suburb called the
Palisades, aneighboihood where
groceries are delivered. The
murder takes place when Fields’
daughter who is home alone
opens the door to a stranger de
Field's hears theattacktakeplace
while she is on her car phone.
The case was brought to court
but thrown out due to a techni
cality so the murderer walks.
Field's then takes matters into
her own hands. Her husband
fries to keep her from putting her
life in danger by following the
killer, but she sneaks behind her
husband’s back and continues to
investigate. Eye For An Eye is a
must see and is playing at the
Brassfield Theatre complex.
Kriss Kross crossed out

Young, Rich and Dangerous is
the name of the album, but who
are they talking about ? All I want
to know is whathappened to those
cute little boys that made every
body want to “JUMP, JUMP”
back in the day.
This album is a cross between
Snoop Dog and Immature. The
tracks are all phat.
Jermaine Dupri definitely
hooked his boys up with that
laid-back, slow-but-funky type
of groove that just screams his
name every time you hear it.
The lyrics, however, are
stricdy confined to blunts, girls
and guns. Original isn’t it?
I want to know where it is
written that every artist com
ing out with an album has to
sound like every other artist
that came before them.
Young, Rich and Dangerous
is about as real as Clarence Tho

These boys (and I stress the
word boys because they're still
not old enough to drive alone)
have no idea what it’s like to
grow up on the streets, and the
only thing dangerous about them
is the power that they misuse to
influence the young men and
women that listen to their music.
Overall this album is nothing
more than an hour-long, x-rated,
unsupervised, under-aged party
over very good listening music.
