The Damned United

The Damned United
Based on David Peace's acclaimed novel The Damned Utd, The Damned United marks the third big screen collaboration between actor Michael Sheen and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan following The Queen and Frost/Nixon. The movie recounts the dismal 44 day tenure of outspoken British football manager Brian Clough (Sheen), who succeeds his wildly successful rival Don Revie (Star Trek's Colm Meaney) as manager of reigning champs Leeds United in 1974.

Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants
Who can resist a nice elderly gentleman reminiscing about the good old days? Some of the sappiest, most memorable films are kick started by an old person with a story. The Notebook, Titanic, Atonement, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption… love them or hate them, there’s something fascinating about the good old days. In Water for Elephants, that old man is Jacob, played by the Hal Holbrook. We meet 90-year-old Jacob in the rain outside of a circus. He looks lost until he sees an old picture of a beautiful woman on an elephant. As tears begin to well up in his eyes, we know we’re in for a good story.

Red White & Blue

Red White & Blue
In Austin Texas, the lives of three young people Erica, Franki and Nate intertwine in a fateful, tragic way and head down a rocky and violent road to heart-rending oblivion. Erica (Amanda Fuller) lives rent-free in the local co-op, but spends her nights trawling the bars and beds of Austin. Damaged, emotionally withdrawn, never really connecting with anyone, and sleeping with multiple men is just what she does until she meets the older and mysterious Nate (Noah Taylor), working in a hardware store, but with an honorable discharge from Iraq.

Alexander

Alexander
To sum up Alexander in three words, I would choose the following: three-hour miscalculation. Although some aspects of Oliver Stone's sword-and-sandals epic are worthy of mention (and even praise), they are dwarfed by the missteps and examples of bad judgment. Instead of delivering a mainstream tale of battle and glory along the lines of Gladiator, Stone decided to re-imagine the great Alexander as a Hamlet-like figure. Rather than developing the title character as a larger-than-life individual whose flaws give him a more rounded personality, Stone turns Alexander into a character who is defined by those flaws. He is weak, indecisive, plagued by self-doubt, and obsessed. It's not credible that a man of this nature could conquer 90% of the known world by the age of 32, and therein lies Alexander's conundrum. By de-mythologizing Alexander, Stone has turned him into an unbelievable individual. We accept great deeds from great people, not from sniveling whiners.

Confetti

Confetti
Confetti is an excellent study of what happens when someone botches Christopher Guest's mockumentary format. A supposed satire of extravagant weddings and reality shows, Debbie Isitt's feature displays little in the way of wit or insight. It's long and tedious, and amusing only on rare, widely spaced occasions. Unlike Guest's films, which show affection for the people being mocked, Isitt treats her cast of mostly unlikable characters with contempt, then attempts to redeem them

Heartbreak Kid

Heartbreak Kid
Combine the Farrelly Brothers (Bobby and Peter) with Ben Stiller, a Cameron Diaz lookalike, and a copious dose of bodily fluids in a raunchy romantic comedy, and what do you get? Not There's Something About Mary II, that's for sure, although that was probably the producers' hope. The Heartbreak Kid, while not without its share of tiny, ephemeral pleasures, is a surprisingly flat and unamusing comedy. The film skews toward the dark side, but black humor is often the most difficult to successfully capture and in this case the Farrellys (with a small army of screenwriters, working from the framework of a 1972 script penned by Neil Simon) don't get it right. The occasional laughs provided aren't frequent enough or uproarious enough to warrant an investment of nearly two hours of a viewer's time.

Deep Impact

Deep Impact
Another summer, another double-dip of disaster dramas. This time around, instead of volcanoes, it's comets. The films in question, Mimi Leder's Deep Impact and Michael Bay's Armageddon, are separated by two months, so the first should have a chance to run its course before the second reaches the screen. (More likely, the first will get squashed by Godzilla.) The movies, while utilizing similar premises (big piece of space debris on collision course with our beloved planet), have fundamentally different slants. Deep Impact focuses more on the Earth-based sitting ducks than on the would-be astronaut heroes. Armageddon sends Bruce Willis into space to kick asteroid. (Armageddon is not near the top of my "must see" list -- after Mercury Rising, I've had enough of Willis for the year.)

Dark City

Dark City
The Crow will forever be remembered as the final performance of budding star Brandon Lee, who died as a result of a tragic behind-the-scenes accident. However, as intense as the hype associated with Lee's death was, it could not obscure the most impressive aspect of the 1994 feature: director Alex Proyas' startling, unforgettable vision. It's rare for any film maker, whether a veteran or a newcomer, to create the kind of compelling, endlessly-fascinating environment that Proyas brought to the screen in The Crow. Now, with his follow-up movie, Dark City, the director incredibly manages to one-up himself.

Mary Shelly's Frankenstein

Mary Shelly's Frankenstein
"In the last 20, 30 years, [Frankenstein has] been claimed by a whole generation of academics and scholars as a seminal piece of literature of that time. [It's] something which now, post-Freud, they feel reveals so many observations about family life, and incest, father-and-son relationships, and husband and wife relationships. [Frankenstein] speaks loudly to people, partly because it's so elusive. There's no definitive interpretation of it - it's certainly more than just a monster story." - Kenneth Branagh, director of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle

Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle
"[Dorothy Parker] was a groundbreaker in a lot of ways. In her day, to write captions and fashion stories was about all that a woman writer could aspire to. Dorothy had the respect of her peers. But she was also a critic, and I think she worked against herself as an artist in that capacity. We show her once with a note in her typewriter -- 'Oh God, please let me write like a man.' And what we really remember her for is how much like a woman she wrote."
- Randy Sue Coburn, co-writer, Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle

Scarlet Letter

Scarlet Letter
Welcome to Massachusetts, 1666, where Puritans, Indians, and adultery come together in Roland Joffe's overlong, overwrought re-interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic, The Scarlet Letter. Literary purists will be aghast at some of the liberties taken with the original text, but my complaints have more to do with cinematic misjudgments than with those in the book-to-screen translation. And, believe me, there are plenty of problems with this production without having to resort to a cry of "it's not faithful to the book!"

Heaven's Soldiers

Heaven's Soldiers
The film begins with high-level military leaders from both North and South Korea discussing the surrender of a North Korean 50 MT nuclear warhead (BiGeokJinCheonRyoe, Korean 비격진천뢰) in a secret underground development bunker near the DMZ. The warhead was secretly jointly-designed, but international pressure has forced North and South Korea to hand over the device and close the facility. North Korean officer Major Kang, displeased with the conciliation of the Koreas, rebels and steals the warhead with the help of several of his loyal soldiers, even killing some North Korean guards in the process. Due to the top-secret nature of the meeting, the leaders of both sides cannot request reinforcements to apprehend the officer, and instead dispatch a South Korean special forces platoon under the leadership of Major Jung-Woo Park, who was present at the meeting.

Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing
John Smith is an amoral gunslinger in the days of Prohibition. On the lam from his latest (unspecified) exploits, he happens upon the town of Jericho, Texas. Actually, calling Jericho a town would be too generous--it has become more like a ghost town, since two warring gangs have driven off all the decent folk. Smith sees this as an opportunity to play both sides off against each other, earning himself a nice piece of change as a hired gun. Despite his strictly avowed mercenary intentions, he finds himself risking his life for his, albeit skewed, sense of honor....
