Let Me In

Let Me In
Ever since it was announced, controversy has surrounded Let Me In, the American remake of beloved Swedish vampire flick Let the Right One In. Film fans the world over asked why Hollywood felt the need to take a pass at a film that was perfect in its own right, and one that was only released a couple of years back.
Well let us allay your fears from the outset - Let Me In is a marvellous re-imagining of John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel; an intelligent adaptation that has been crafted with such love, care and attention that it deserves to be judged on its own terms, and a film that - dare-we-say-it - might even improve on the original.

In this version proceedings have been transferred to Los Alamos, New Mexico, and the year is 1983 - the Cold War at its height; Americans fearful of the perceived Soviet threat.

Killers

Killers
When it became public some weeks ago that Lionsgate would not be screening Killers in advance for critics, the journalistic world was abuzz: would this high-profile movie pairing Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl -- a match made in eye-candy heaven -- really be such a bomb that it felt the need to skirt the venomous sting of critics? As a critic who just emerged from a standard, ho-hum, no-swag cineplex screening, I can attest that the answer is, somewhat surprisingly, no.

Catacombs

Catacombs
See Paris and die is the old saying, but when you venture down below the city of lights into the catacombs you may find that there’s something that will assist you in the dying part of the phrase.

Victoria (Shannyn Sossamon) gets a postcard from her sister Carolyn (Alecia Moore, aka Pink) saying that she should come to Paris that that the trip will “change her forever.” Carolyn takes Victoria to a party that’s hosted by Jean-Michel (Mihai Stanescu) in the legendary catacombs that are under the streets of Paris. The catacombs have been a repository of the dead since the 18th century and the bones have been crafted into macabre works of art.

Sex Drive

Sex Drive
Sometimes, even a hardened critic can be surprised by a movie. Based on the promotional material, Sex Drive appears headed down the worn track followed by a long line of formulaic teenage road comedies. I won't bother listing the titles - those with a fondness for the genre know them by heart. Suffice it to say, it's not an impressive lineage. Sex Drive starts out much as one might suspect from a film with that title and, for a while, it meanders deeper into familiar territory, seemingly on cruise control. Then something unexpected happens. The characters begin developing personalities. The situations start going for more than just cheap laughs. It's as if John Hughes stole pages 30 through 110 of the Sean Anders/John Morris script and replaced it with something that has a heart in addition to gonads.

Story:
Graphic artist Oliver Fields (Ewan McGregor) has been trying to come to terms with the fact his widower father Hal (Christopher Plummer) decided to come out of the closet at the age of 75 before being stricken by cancer. Months after his father's death, Oliver meets the enigmatic Anna (Mélanie Laurent) at a party; they're immediately attracted to each other but each are trying to deal with personal issues that might impede their happiness.

Analysis:
The idea of a 75-year-old widower coming out of the closet might sound like an absurd premise for a movie if you didn't realize that aspect of Mike Mills' follow-up to his quirky debut "Thumbsucker" actually comes from his own life. Oddly, this semi-autobiographical dramedy makes Mills' adaptation of Walter Kirn seem conventional by comparison partially due to the film's dual non-linear story structure that cuts between Oliver's quest for love with Anna and his last years with his father. It's a film that's very aware of itself in the way it breaks the fourth wall or switches into different narrative styles with Mills' quirky sensibilities always in full effect.

Halloween: Resurrection

Halloween: Resurrection
Note to readers: this review contains spoilers. If you care, come back and read the review after you have endured the torture that is Halloween: Resurrection.

There are three levels of quality in the horror genre, all of which are represented in the Halloween series. A good horror movie delivers characters worth caring about and keeps viewers on the edges of their seats with scares aplenty. John Carpenter's seminal Halloween is unquestionably in that category. A mediocre horror movie typically offers two-dimensional individuals trapped in a stale plot, yet is still able to deliver the occasional scare. Halloween installments two, four, and seven fit that description. A bad horror movie is an effective sleep tonic, with plastic, uninteresting stereotypes to go along with an utter lack of shocks, chills, or surprises. This is the division in which Halloweens 3, 5, 6, and 8 belong.

Notes on a Scandal

Notes on a Scandal
Notes on a Scandal is an attempt to make a Fatal Attraction type thriller for the art house crowd. With a cast that features two of today's best actresses - Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett - and a screenplay of uncommon literacy, the movie nearly achieves its aim. However, in order to propel circumstances to a conclusion, Notes on a Scandal relies upon a contrivance so ugly and obvious that it's impossible to ignore. This single glaring fault, which is even more evident considering how well constructed the rest of the movie is, damages the film's narrative flow and credibility.

Jumanji

Jumanji
Apparently, the producers of Jumanji wanted this film to be a Jurassic Park for 1995's holiday season. If so, it's a badly misplaced, and ultimately futile, hope. For, although no one would suspect Steven Spielberg's 1993 dino-picture of having a plot worthy of great literature, at least it had a storyline -- something this film is lacking. Jumanji takes approximately one-hundred minutes for four people to play a board game. The result isn't much more fun or involving than watching a few friends play Monopoly. Even the Robin Williams manic humor can't save Jumanji, at least not entirely.

If this was a totally worthless film I would easily call it a Chinese rip off of Transformers but it bring more to the table than meets the eye. Under normal circumstances, I try to know as little as possible about a film before I watch it. I feel it allows me a better experience the film. Kung Fu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction is a film I should of done a bit of research on to avoid expectations. The year is 2046 and state-built robot K-1 is entrusted to the care of Xu Dachun, a super-righteous and supposedly incorruptible cop stationed in the Chinese countryside.

All the Days Before Tomorrow

All the Days Before Tomorrow
The movie follows a non-linear convoluted journey through (4) different settings: One which represents today; one which represents protagonist Wes', dreamworld; and the remaining two representing the good times shared with Alison who is Wes' dearest and closest platonic friend. The movie has been made the same way as the memoirs it is trying to portray. Non-existence of time is one aspect of the protagonist that is loved by his friend. The movie captures this time anomaly in their relationship with scenes of past memories in a non-linear sequence. It gives you a sense of the loneliness and lack of deep connection Alison is going through while trying to maintain her relationship with her beau in tokyo, all while making you aware that Wes is only carrying on with his life by holding onto the best memories between them. (This is depicted in the opening scene when Alison is watching the shining window drapes which represent the same kind of drapes at a hotel where she stayed with Wes during a road trip through the Utah deserts).
