Fear mongering about the pratfalls genetic tampering is nothing new to cinema – and Splice has nothing new to add to the discussion – but it certainly fills out the ranks of healthy schlock science fiction for 2010. It also pulls influences from all over the place – most transparently, Species and hints of The Fly. The premise was clearly enough to dazzle acclaimed director Guillermo Del Toro, who stepped in as Executive Producer on the project.
Most recently spotted in the thick alien jungles of Predators – another schlock sci-fi flick, jam-packed with homage moments (mostly to its predecessors), Adrien Brody plays a far-too-fashionable geneticist, Clive, working alongside his edgy lover, Elsa, played by the underrated Sarah Polley. As two project leads working out of a genetic research and manipulation facility, they stumble on the perfect formula to create original organic life forms. However, this being a horror film, things go awry.
Away from Her
It has been said that Alzheimer's is the only "major" terminal condition to exact a greater toll on the family than the victim. Compared to cancer (for example), Alzheimer's offers a relatively gentle journey into oblivion for the patient, a gradual dissolution of memory and personality. For the caregivers, however, the experience is different. They must watch as a loved one disappears, stolen away piece by piece, before their eyes. The process of mourning begins before the patient has died.

While many movies claim to be based on true stories, Dreamer takes it one step further. The film's official name is Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story. The word "inspired" allows a lot of creative license. In fact, very little of what happens in Dreamer bears a relationship to something that happened in real life, so the "true story" part of the equation is a red herring. Ultimately, the question is not whether Dreamer is "true" but whether it's entertaining. The answer to that question likely depends on your age. Dreamer is a kids' movie. It offers the simple black-and-whites of innocence, with no grays to add complexity. From the first frame, you will know not only how the movie is going to end, but roughly the path it's going to take to get there. Children enjoy watching their favorite films repeatedly, since there's comfort in the known. That's what Dreamer offers - the assurance that anything bad that happens to the characters will be temporary and there will be a happily-ever-after, fairytale ending.
In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Seige Tale
In the Name of the King is a second-rate regurgitation of The Lord of the Rings. Everything about it, down to the set and costume design, apes Peter Jackson's epic trilogy. However, while The Lord of the Rings was a grand story of scope and power, In the Name of the King feels small in more ways than one. It's a lot like Eragon, except that this movie at least has the virtue of concluding rather than leaving us hanging. In the Name of the King has a cheap look and feel; whether the problems are budgetary or the result of a limited vision, the story and characters never achieve enough of an independent life for this to be worthy of the "homage" label rather than the "rip off" one.

"It's my considered opinion that in the fullness of time, history will record the greatness of [Michael] Collins and it will be recorded at my expense."
-- Eamon De Valera, President of the Republic of Ireland, 1966
Of the more than five dozen films to be released this Fall, none is likely to generate more controversy than Neil Jordan's Michael Collins, a biopic of the man who co-founded the IRA and signed the 1921 treaty that partitioned Ireland and provoked the 1922 civil war. Even before its release, the film has fanned passions in the United Kingdom, where it has been tagged with such diverse labels as "ammunition for IRA recruiting sergeants and fund-raisers" (Ruth Dudley Edwards) and "as important a film as ever to be made in Ireland about Ireland" (Art Cosgrove). Opponents are as vocal in their condemnation of the movie as supporters are in their defense of it. Not unexpectedly, writer/director Neil Jordan has been obligated to affirm the picture's integrity, stating at the Toronto Film Festival that "Most of the people who accuse me of inflaming the peace process have no interest in the peace process whatsoever."

It would be possible to write pages and pages comparing and contrasting the reality of Bill Clinton's 1992 Presidential campaign with the fictional one of Jack Stanton, the candidate in Primary Colors. Likewise, it would be equally possible to develop a lengthy piece about the similarities and differences between the movie and the best-selling novel upon which it is based. Since more qualified individuals than I will be penning articles of this sort over the next few days and weeks, I feel confident that I can narrow the scope of this review (mostly) to the movie itself, and let others worry about the divisions between fact and fiction.

Breaking the Waves
According to writer/director Lars von Trier, Breaking the Waves is "a simple love story", but "simple" hardly begins to describe this deeply disturbing, multi-layered drama. In fact, nowhere is the picture's complexity more evident than in its study of contrasts -- it is highly spiritual yet anti-religious, triumphant yet tragic, and personal yet universal. Love forms the film's core, but rather than approaching the subject from a cliched perspective, Breaking the Waves examines no less than six facets of the emotion: transformative love, sacrificial love, redemptive love, destructive love, romantic love, and sexual love. And, despite a slightly disappointing conclusion, this movie still rates among the best of the year.

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.
A Plumm Summer
An amiable retro feel permeates "A Plumm Summer," and it's not just because this family film is set 40 years in the past. Montana-set, reality-inspired pic feels like an homage to a bygone era of moviemaking: It takes its time to build character and story, there's hardly a CG effect in sight, and there's nothing high-concept about it. Latter fact reps a significant though not insurmountable marketing hurdle. Expect, at least in the short term, continued fest appearances, where pic has been an audience favorite. DVD prospects, thanks to a recognizable cast, look sunny.
