Time travel movies meddle with paradoxes and causality - these things lie at the core of their essential fascination. The difference between a good time travel movie and a bad one often rests with one simple quality: Having established a set of "rules" by which the paradoxes are governed, does the film remain constrained by them or does it mutate them to fit the circumstances? Unfortunately, Premonition is plagued by inconsistencies. There's some interesting material in the film about pre-destination and questions about whether it's possible to change fate, but the movie is less interested in the philosophical implications of this than it is in developing a mystery and seeding red herrings.
Watching Cheri, I felt like someone had turned back the clock by about 15 years. The early-to-mid-1990s were a fertile time for literate, lavish adaptations of period piece literature, with frequent destinations being Europe between the early-1800s and the mid-1900s. Cheri, based on the novel by Colette (actually two novels: Cheri and Le Fin de Cheri), would have been perfectly at home amidst the stately company of Merchant-Ivory, Scorsese's The Age of Innocence, and the endless adaptations of Jane Austen novels. Considering the screenwriter, this should not be a surprise. Christopher Hampton has made a living out of plundering the past, with titles like Dangerous Liaisons and Carrington on his resume. And, while Cheri is not in the same league as either of those giants, it is a respectable and satisfying historical romantic melodrama.
As a bio-pic, De-Lovely is pretty standard, run-of-the-mill stuff (albeit with an interesting framing device). However, as a "best hits" collection of Cole Porter's music, it is unparalleled. With approximately two-dozen of his tunes performed by artists as diverse as Robbie Williams, Elvis Costello, Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, and Natalie Cole, this is a treasure trove of music and memories. It's that, rather than Irwin Winkler's unremarkable presentation of Porter's life, which makes De-Lovely worth seeing. That, and the de-lightful performance of Kevin Kline.
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS
A good dozen, maybe more, amply endowed young ladies clad in only their lacy underthings strut into a high class club, each one soon vanishing into a private booth, accompanying at least one wealthy male party attendee as "Palisades Park" pounds out over the archaic sound system. Among this crowd of most-welcomed "entertainment" lurks a ringer. A spy. A female covert operative doing what female covert operatives do in movies - use their sexiness to achieve their mission goals. This is one Moira MacTaggert, a legacy character in the "X-Men" comic book mythos, and in this film, someone who gives no thought to stripping down in order to infiltrate and blend in. It's just that kind of decade. Straaaaange things are afoot, and they must be investigated.

THE TREE OF LIFE
Terrence Malick is working with materials that are not available to any other artist on Earth, because he is drawing directly from his brain, heart, and soul. The Tree of Life continues his solitary journey toward enlightenment and/or understanding and/or reconciliation, as he wrestles with spirituality, pain, memory, grief, family, fathers, mothers, brothers, and other big questions of life.
And if you don't want to go along with him on his journey, if you find his explorations to be pretentious or tedious, why, that's perfectly fine. Malick frames his arguments in a way that makes sense to him. He began moving in this direction with Badlands, his directorial debut, in which the plot moved forward like a mighty river, so that digressions into the personalities of Kit Carruthers (Martin Sheen) and Holly Sargis (Sissy Spacek) appeared to be merely eddies, swept along with the narrative flow that eventually emptied into the titular wide open spaces of the South Dakota.

Whatever its flaws, one can certainly not accuse Prozac Nation of avoiding risks. The movie, directed by Erik Skjoldbjaerg (the original Insomnia) and adapted from the book by Elizabeth Wurtzel, doesn't exactly go out on a tightrope, but it frequently veers away from safe ground, in large part due to a riveting performance by Christina Ricci.

The Skeleton Key is the latest of the new breed of PG-13 "horror" movies that emphasize atmosphere and "boo" moments over gore. This film, which is not a re-make of a Japanese production (as many of these pictures are), maintains an internal logic that allows the viewer to follow the storyline without becoming confused or losing interest. There are weaknesses - the narrative traverses a predictable trajectory, the pacing is uneven, and there are times when the action goes over-the-top. But the heroine is smarter than the average horror movie scream queen and the ending doesn't cheapen proceedings. (Actually, one could argue that the ending is the best thing about The Skeleton Key.)

Batman and Robin
With Batman and Robin, the fourth entry in the recent Batman movie series, the profitable franchise appears poised to take a nosedive. This film, which places yet another actor in the batsuit, has all the necessary hallmarks of a sorry sequel -- pointless, plodding plotting; asinine action; clueless, comatose characterization; and dumb dialogue. Sadly for all the batfans who have been waiting with baited breath for this one, Batman and Robin has become the latest blight on the long summer movie season.

Wag the Dog
"Why does a dog wag its tail? Because the dog is smarter than the tail. If the tail was smarter, it would wag the dog."
Hollywood and Presidential politics - perfect together. Anyone who doubts this simple maxim will face a challenge to their opinion when they see Wag the Dog, the hilarious new satire from director Barry Levinson. For, although this film is one of the funniest comedies of the year, it also carries a serious, thought-provoking message about the relationship between politics and mass-market entertainment. This is one of Levinson's best films, and the screenplay, co-penned by noted writer David Mamet (along with Hilary Henkin), is brilliantly on-target.

It's rather interesting - and a little discouraging - that the bulk of theatrical science fiction is actually far better suited to the action genre than to anything else. Timecop is a perfect example. As a shoot-'em-up, blast-'em-to-pieces film, it's not half bad. As a futuristic time travel movie, however, it has some very serious problems.
The film takes place in a 1950s-esque alternate universe where radiation from space has turned the dead into zombies. This resulted in the "Zombie Wars", where humanity battled zombies to prevent a zombie apocalypse, with humanity the ultimate victor. The radiation still plagues humanity, as all those who die after the original contamination turn into the undead, unless the dead body is disposed of by decapitation or cremation. In order to continue living normal lives, communities are fenced with the help of a governing corporation named Zomcon. Zomcon provides collars with accompanying remote controls to control the zombies' hunger for flesh so as to use them as slaves or servants.
