PAUL HOGAN, the Australian who became a major international screen name with his two ''Crocodile Dundee'' movies, says he did his new film, ''Almost An Angel,'' because he ''desperately wanted to get away'' from the Crocodile Man.''I'd have played a lawyer,'' said Hogan, ''anything. I just wanted to do a character that changed. The man I play in the new film is a criminal who is somehow turned into an angel. Dundee never changes. He's always the same, and I'd rather leave him behind.''Does that mean that Hogan doesn't intend to do any more ''Dundee'' movies?

The third time doesn't prove a charm for "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles," in which Paul Hogan's Aussie fish-out-of-water character keeps on mining the comedic vein he's tapped twice before, with decidedly mixed results. It's pretty much the same old Croc this time around, as Dundee - more than a decade removed from his memorable initial foray to these shores - returns for another dose of American-style reality. He's still bewildered by such modern contraptions as clap-lights and remote controls, he's still seen as a virile stud by every woman who lays eyes on him, he's still a paragon of virtue (even if he's not above telling a tall tale or two)

While "Flipper" doesn't exactly arrive dead in the water, the latest installment in that saga of America's most beloved bottlenose could be dubbed "Flopper."A limp update of the story about the boy and his dolphin, this one stars Paul Hogan as Uncle Porter, the Barnacle Bill of Beach Boys fans, and Elijah Wood as his grunge nephew, Sandy.In the first of many miscalculations, "Flipper" expects the audience to believe "Crocodile" Dundee as a hippie and The Good Son as a surly teen-ager. But the film's gravest error is in focusing on the bipeds and not giving Flipper a personality.

I honestly believe you could stop any bus in Baltimore City, pick 10 people at random, give them $10 million to make a movie and you'd get nine films that were better than and one film that was as good as Paul Hogan's "Almost an Angel."I guarantee you: None would be worse.Surely the year's lamest enterprise, it lacks only brazen immorality to classify it as the year's worst movie. It's not tough enough to be immoral, of course; every bone in its smug little body is a wet gobbit of macaroni.

Consider both the arrogance and the shame of Paul Hogan, the smart- aleck Australian nitwit who conned his way into a fluke hit some years back with "Crocodile Dundee" and has since unleashed one turkey after another, of which "Lightning Jack" is yet another big, dopey, dirty bird.The arrogance: In his own screenplay, he gives himself not merely all the good lines, but all the lines, period. That's right: His sidekick is mute!The shame: The mute sidekick, Cuba Gooding Jr., still manages to wipe him off the screen!

ALMOST AN Angel'' is almost a movie. That's a cheap shot, but it's almost unavoidable.The producers of the film may have given away the best of their movie in the trailer. The trailer makes the film look very promising. The movie itself is a disappointment.Paul Hogan stars. Hogan is the Australian who had phenomenal success with his two ''Crocodile Dundee'' films. He has a very easy, languid style, one that helped make the ''Crocodile'' films the fun they were.The new film, however, is just too languid.

Facing that Death dudeMOVIES"Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey" is a bit better than the first "Bill & Ted" movie that was released in 1989. The new film is funnier, and that's mostly because of William Sadler, who plays Death, someone the boys meet on their way to hell. Don't ask how they get there. There is so much time warp here, "Back to the Future 2" seems uncomplicated by comparison. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter repeat as the title characters in the film. Go, dudes. Language. Rating: PG. ** A tall cabinet with winglike side shelves, an elephant-motif chair inspired by the Adirondack form and a painted cabinet that rocks on slender legs are part of Meredith Gallery's third annual display of art furniture created by students from the Rhode Island School of Design and Southeastern Massachusetts University.

Linda Kozlowski, in New York for sessions with the press, looked like the kind of woman for whom a man might give up his crocodiles and kangaroos. Dressed in a very short jump suit, she was as pretty in person as she is on the screen.Her newest film is ''Almost an Angel,'' in which she co-stars with Paul Hogan, the man who made the two ''Crocodile Dundee'' films.She and Hogan are married now. They have been since May, and that pleases Kozlowski because it means that the press is laying off. It hasn't been so bad here, but it was in Australia, where Hogan was born and where he filmed much of his ''Dundee'' movies.

SYDNEY, Australia - What began as a gentle childlike dream little more than two weeks ago ended in a wild party yesterday celebrating all things Australian and bracketing what have been hailed as the greatest Olympic Games of the modern era. From its fantastic start Sept. 15, when Olympic Stadium was transformed into a spectacular world of flying fish and spinning pinwheels, to the unofficial anthems "Waltzing Matilda" and "Land Down Under" that closed the Games, Sydney did its best to show the world Australia.
