Rated R. Half-Baked - The tide says it all. A comedy featuring half- baked characters and an equally half-baked plot, the movie may have a shelf life less than its on- screen contemporaries. Rated R. Fallen - What if a simple touch could transfer a killer in- stinct? That's what happens in this movie, which stars Denzel Washington ("The Pelican Brief") and Robert DiNiro. Rated R. Amistad - The controversial drama about an 1839 mutiny aboard a Spanish slave ship, "Amistad" is directed by Steven Spielberg. The movie stars Mor- gan Freeman, Matthew Mc- Conaughey, Anthony Hopkins, Nigel Hawthorne and newcomer Djimon Hounsou (in his first American picture, he's already the source of an Oscar buzz). To make it even more interesting, Spielberg shot some of the film's footage in Delaware, Rated R. Wag the Dog - Caught in a sticky situation only days before the election, the president doesn't have high hopes of spending an- other term in office. That's before one of his advisors, played by Robert DeNiro, contacts Holly- wood producer (Dustin Hoffman) and produces a fictitious war in Albania that the president brings to an heroic ending. Rated R. Good Will Hunting - The most gifted person at MIT is jani- tor Will Hunting, played by Matt Damon. With the help of two Strangers, a nutty professor (Robin Williams) and a med student (Minnie Driver), he has aspira- tions of greatness. In Order to achieve his dreams, he's forced to turn his back on his best friend and his neighborhood. Rated R. Fire Storm - Canadian actor Barry Pepper heads the lineup of this action-packed, big-budget feature from Twentieth Century Fox about two forest fires that col- lide to create one ferocious storm. The film also stars Howie Long ("Broken Arrow"), Suzy Amis ("The Usual Suspects"), Scott Glenn ("Courage Under Fire") and William Forsythe ("The Rock"). Rated R. As Good As It Gets - As an obsessive-compulsive writer, a single mother/waitress and a gay artist, Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt and Greg Kinnear, respectively, form an unlikely friendship.

"Titanic" stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Rated PG- 13.
