The creative and financial successes of two franchises - Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings - have changed the way in which fantasy is viewed by movie-goers. Once a genre pigeonholed as fit only for Dungeons & Dragons nerds, fantasy has gone mainstream. So why has 20th Century Fox released this embarrassment - whose quality would be dubious for a direct-to-video release - into theaters? Eragon, based on the inexplicably popular by-the-numbers fantasy novel written by then-teenager Christopher Paolini, is a throwback to the Dungeons & Dragons movie crapfest of 2000. It's hard to imagine anyone having the patience to sit through this movie except perhaps a handful of 11-year old boys seeking vicarious wish fulfillment.
Perhaps Almodovar and film noir simply don't mix. This is the second time in three films the acclaimed Spanish director has attempted to apply his unique style to a twisty mystery and, as was the case with Bad Education, it's not a marriage made in color. In fact, Broken Embraces has a fair amount in common with Bad Education - both productions feature films-within-the-film, both are as firmly entrenched in the past as in the present, and both contain their share of melodramatic "reveals." In many ways, Broken Embraces is a better film, at least for the first 90 minutes. The material is compelling, the level of technical proficiency is superior, and everything seems to be building to a satisfying climax. Sadly, however, Almodovar's ability to generate a build-up surpasses his skill in delivering a resolution. The final half-hour of Broken Embraces is littered with facile contrivances and plot turns worthy of a soap opera. It's almost mystifying, and more than a little frustrating, to watch a movie cruising at such a high level suddenly suffer a complete breakdown and lose too much altitude.

It seems that every new comedy to arrive in theaters pushes the envelope further, daring the MPAA to give it an NC-17. Scary Movie, from the demented and very funny minds of the Wayans Brothers, becomes the latest motion picture to risk censure in the name of laughter - and gets away with it. Featuring scenes that make American Pie, There's Something About Mary, and Me, Myself and Irene seem almost tame, Scary Movie combines the raunchiness of '90s teen comedies with the single-movie spoof approach of Mel Brooks and the rapid-fire barrage of gags and jokes used in Airplane and The Naked Gun. With body fluids flowing almost as fast as the stream of often profane and off-color zingers, Scary Movie proves to be the kind of film that will shock the faint-of-heart and leave just about everyone else laughing until tears run down their cheeks.

Based on the evidence at hand, it's impossible to say whether director Oliver Hirschbiegel's (Downfall) original cut of The Invasion would have been any good. What can be said is that the mismatched blending of Hirschbiegel's low-key horror and the Wachowski Brothers' anything-but-low-key action sequences results in a cinematic dud. The Invasion doesn't know what it wants to be - an action film, a horror movie, a science fiction allegory, a mother/son bonding picture - and , as a result, it ends up being none of the above. After an atmospheric and well-paced first two reels, the movie loses coherence as it rushes through potentially slower sequences to get to the pyrotechnic payoffs that result in an abrupt, unsatisfying conclusion.
There is little doubt that the most discussed aspect of writer/director/editor John Sayles' Limbo will be the ending. Unconventional and unexpected, the conclusion will inspire outrage in some movie-goers (a patron at the showing I attended hurled something at the screen after the end credits started rolling). Others, however, will recognize that Sayles chooses a resolution that is in keeping with the tone and artistic intent of the rest of the picture. Anything else would have been a capitulation to convention and traditional storytelling.
Despite its enormously entertaining action sequences and generally high level of energy, Drop Zone has a major draw back: it doesn't make sense. This is a classic example of a script apparently constructed as an afterthought to accommodate the skydiving, fight, and chase scenes. The plot, to put it frankly, is complete rubbish, with far too much time devoted to fruitless attempts at explaining and developing it.
Most recently, skydiving was used to drive Terminal Velocity, and, while no one is going to nominate Drop Zone for an award, it's a more enjoyable way to spend ninety-plus minutes -- assuming you're for some reason forced to choose between the two. Then again, no matter what the arena, Wesley Snipes can act rings around Charlie Sheen, and John Badham (Wargames) is a somewhat more accomplished director than Velocity's Deran Sarafian.

Stargate: The Ark of Truth
The movie covers SG-1's attempt to recover the "Ark of Truth", an Alteran device designed to brainwash whoever looks into it. Even though the Ori's promise of Ascension is a lie, the Ancients believe that people should be free to believe it if they wish.
SG-1 discovers a box that they believe contains the Ark while digging on Dakara, but before they can open it, Ori soldiers arrive, led by Tomin. Daniel tricks them into opening the box, but it is revealed to be a fake. When Tomin is ordered by a Prior to kill them, he refuses, and Mitchell kills the Prior, whose powers were being blocked by the Anti-Prior device. Shocked at the death of their Prior, the Ori soldiers surrender.

This story is a fairly faithful adaptation of the play and novel by J. M. Barrie. In it, the perpetually young Peter Pan (Jeremy Sumpter) from time to time visits London in the early 1900s, where he becomes enthralled by the stories that Wendy Darling (Rachel Hurd-Wood) tells to her brothers. Wendy asks to visit Never Land and Peter invites her to be the "mother" to his gang of Lost Boys (most of whom are English accented). Before leaving, she asks to bring her brothers John (Harry Newell) and Michael (Freddie Popplewell), and Peter teaches them all to fly with him.

The two play a high-stakes game of pool which ends in a huge debt owed to Joe, and soon Johnny finds that his brother is in jail for trying to steal the money he owes.
