The Road

The Road
Based on Cormac McCarthy's award-winning novel, The Road offers a non-stylized look at a post-apocalyptic future through the eyes of a father and son struggling to survive. With less straightforward narrative than McCarthy's last successful film adaptation, No Country for Old Men, The Road is something of a tone poem, tracing the relationship between father and son as they journey through a lifeless wasteland toward an ocean which may, or may not, hold some hope of salvation.

It's the kind of simple almost too-simple tale that demands a strong emotional bond between the two main characters if it's to have any hope of succeeding, and to the film's credit, actor Viggo Mortensen and newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee play remarkably well off one another. There's a palpable feeling of desperation to Mortensen's performance and one can feel the constant drive to press forward into an uncertain future with only the vaguest of prayers that he might be able to carve out some better life for the boy. There's a feeling of uselessness that hangs around the father's neck. He keeps an emotional distance from his son, certain that he's not much longer to live and determined to toughen up the boy to live in this new and violent world. Alternately, one can clearly see the affection and sizable admiration that the boy holds for his father, pleading for a love that becomes lost in a father's duty to arm his child against a world without rules or moral boundaries.

The Seamstress

The Seamstress
This is going to be a difficult to review to write. It won't be a long review. That part isn't a problem since the movie was only 75 minutes (but feels much longer). The reason this is going to be a difficult review to write is because The Seamstress was the first of five movies I viewed in a 48-hour period (four of which I'll be writing reviews of), and I'll be damned if I can barely remember much of anything about it.

Shark Hunter

Shark Hunter
The movie's opening scenes are intended to be reminiscent of an old 8mm family movie. They are also intended to impress upon the viewer that Spencer's father and mother were good people who he cared for very much. However, it did a pretty poor job of conveying the intended message, because I failed to care what happened to the family. When the Megalodon appeared and ate the boat, I was relieved that something, no matter how poorly edited, had happened.

Teeth
It's often said that there's nothing new in Hollywood. That may well be true, but that doesn't stop writer/director Mitchell Lichtenstein from trying in his debut feature. Teeth is not only odd but it's genre-defying. The film doesn't limit its field of choice: it's a black comedy, it's a drama about teen angst, it's a romance gone bad, it's a B-grade horror film, it's an allegory about female empowerment. All this, and in less than 90 minutes. Teeth's take-chances, take-no-prisoners-approach is refreshing but there are times when things become a little too sloppy or a little too campy for the mismatched tones and colliding approaches to fully gel. Still, this is the kind of calling card that gets filmmakers noticed and makes viewers intrigued to see what's next.

Garfield

Garfield
If there was a single thought prominent in my mind as I watched Garfield: The Movie, it was "Why?" Not so much "why" I was there (although my decision to get up early on a Saturday morning to attend this screening might be a cause for concern), but "why" this film was committed to celluloid in the first place. Is Fox so desperate for family-friendly fare that they were willing to greenlight the transformation of a marginally witty comic strip character into a CGI abomination? Or are they seeking to have their own version of Howard the Duck? Either way, the result is a motion picture so ungainly and awful that only an under-8 child could appreciate it.

Pursuit of Happyness

Pursuit of Happyness
With a title like The Pursuit of Happyness, you expect the characters to get to the promised land. They do, but if the journey matters more than the destination, this is a movie to skip. The Pursuit of Happyness is long, dull, and depressing. It expands into two hours a story that could have been told more effectively in one. This is not the feel-good movie of the season unless you believe that a few moments of good cheer can redeem 110 minutes of gloom. Sitting through The Pursuit of Happyness is a chore. Downbeat movies aren't inherently bad (in fact, many are powerful), but this one provides artificial characters in contrived circumstances. How is it that movies "inspired by a real story" often feel more fake than those fully embedded in the realm of fiction?

Mean Girls

Mean Girls
Although Mean Girls is likely to be frequently compared to Heathers, and perhaps occasionally to Election, the movie it most strongly reminds me of is 1999's Jawbreaker. All four of these films offer a darkly satirical perspective of high school and popularity, but, while Heathers and Election follow things through to the bitter end, Mean Girls, like Jawbreaker, loses its comic momentum before the closing credits roll. In this case, the ending is more sappy than happy and gives us the sense that the screenplay betrays its origins in order to avoid an unsettling denouement. As a result, Mean Girls works for its first three-quarters, then implodes as it approaches the finish line.

Dangerous Minds

Dangerous Minds
In the movies, like in real life, it isn't enough just to have a heart in the right place. Good intentions are nice, but they need to be backed up by an intelligent script telling an involving story. In the case of Dangerous Minds, we get an idealized version of inner city life, where, though problems may require more than the wave of a magic wand to remove, the solutions still seem too facile.

Mars Attacks!

Mars Attacks!
What do you get if you use Tim Burton, the inspired and irreverent director of Batman and Ed Wood, to combine an invasion force of bug-eyed, big-brained Martians, a star-studded cast featuring some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and a huge special effects budget? Sadly, one of 1996's most disappointing motion pictures. Mars Attacks!, Burton's half-satire/half-homage to '50s B-movies, is a stillborn affair that could have been -- and should have been -- a whole lot hipper and funnier. If you've seen the two-minute theatrical trailer, you've seen nearly everything that's worthwhile in the feature.
