Opening This Week

THE BLIND SIDE—Another sanctimonious tale masquerading as story of hope and inspiration is the essence of this Sandra Bullock vehicle. Bullock is the matriarch of a well-heeled Memphis family that becomes guardians to a homeless teenage man-child, Michael Oher (newcomer Quinton Aaron), in hopes of improving his life, grades and, oh by the way, his chances at a college scholarship to play offensive left tackle at the University of Mississippi. Based on a true story and adapted from Michael Lewis' 2006 book, director John Lee Hancock makes a point of emphasizing that Sean and Leigh Ann Tuohy (Tim McGraw and Bullock) are conservative NRA members, presumably so we won't reflexively cast them as typical liberal do-gooders. No problem, since the lone moment in this formulaic film that holds any complexity is when the NCAA investigates the Tuohys—rabid Ole Miss fans, coincidentally enough—and Big Mike's high school coach for recruiting violations. Of course, that conflict, like every other throughout the movie, dissipates in quick and cursory fashion. The cardboard cutout characters come to life only during a closing credits montage of the actual people involved. Rated PG-13. —NM

AN EDUCATION—It is written that boys and girls must meet cute in the movies, and screenwriter Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, Fever Pitch), working from a brief memoir by journalist Lynn Barber, obliges. The education of 16-year-old Jenny, a promising high school student in 1961 London, begins one afternoon while she's waiting in the rain for a bus and David (Peter Sarsgaard), a stylish 30-something, pulls up alongside in his Bristol roadster. What makes this film so watchable—in addition to Hornby's reliably punchy dialogue—is that it effectively captures the delirium of amour fou. The film's romance is so wrong, but it provides such a rush that we understand why the characters plow ahead. Where Danish director Lone Scherfig's film falls short, however, is that it ultimately slips into a comfortable moralizing that seems more befitting the safe suburban world that Jenny wants to escape. The film is happy to embrace the stylings of the hip leading edge of the 1960s, but the morality of this movie is 1950s. In this movie, lovers have to say they're sorry. Read our review. Rated PG-13. —DF

PLANET 51—An American astronaut, Charles T. Baker (voiced by Dwayne Johnson), lands on a faraway planet inhabited by little green people who have a hearty fear of, well, aliens. The inhabitants of Planet 51 live in a 1950s Americana pastiche, and the film itself plays off some '50s alien invasion conventions—the plot itself is essentially a dumbed-down version of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Of course, that era's schlock worked as a metaphor for Cold War paranoia, and there is no such political or social subtext found in this unfunny, derivative time-waster. Like writer Joe Stillman's Shrek flicks, pop cultural references litter the landscape: Star Wars, Alien, 2001: A Space Odyssey, E.T., Close Encounters, Singin' in the Rain and others get their moment in the "pun." Constant, inane one-liners land like moon rocks, and even the parallel historical mash-ups have no internal logic: The aliens' nascent technology includes rotary phones, black-and-white TV, and ... hovercrafts? Want to imagine how the folks at Pixar might handle this material? Go rent The Iron Giant. Rated PG. —NM

PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL PUSH BY SAPPHIRE—This runaway hit on the film festival circuit—and surefire Oscar bait—is equal parts illumination and exploitation, a prefabricated passion play as pretentious as its full title. Set in Harlem circa 1987, an illiterate, obese teenage mother, Chaireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), endures poverty, repeated rape and impregnation by her absentee father and constant physical and emotional abuse from her welfare mom, Mary (Mo'Nique, a powerhouse performance of a cartoonishly vile character). Precious' struggle for survival is inspiring and shines a light onto the horrific lives many silently suffer. However, producer-director Lee Daniels indulges—even perpetuates—the very racial stereotypes and preconceptions this film should transcend. Read our review. Rated R. —NM

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON—Kristen Stewart, owner of the hottest pair of cheekbones in the business, awaits you. Join her, Robert Pattinson, Anna Kendrick and the rest of the merry crew in knocking 2012 off its perch as the world's No. 1 movie. Rated PG-13. Read our review.

Current Releases

2012­—The world ends again in Roland Emmerich's latest apocalyptic money-printer. The question isn't one of suspending disbelief. This movie requires that you annihilate your disbelief—and take leave of your senses, as well. Billions die amid the carpet bombing of digital effects, but the film averts its gaze from a single chicken being slaughtered by a wise old Chinese grandma. Never more has the line, attributed to Joseph Stalin, been more true: "A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic." The destruction throughout 2012 is pornographic but unaffecting. When the aircraft carrier U.S.S. John F. Kennedy, floating up the rising Potomac and obliterating the White House, you don't feel a thing beyond a certain regard for the skill of the animators who spent months making this appalling scene look "real." John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Woody Harrelson and a battalion of CGI designers star. Rated PG-13. —DF

AMELIA—This lushly photographed hagiography of Amelia Earhart—ably portrayed by Hilary Swank—feels like a nostalgic keepsake, dipped in amber and mounted for display. Director Mira Nair uses the tried-and-tired narrative flashback to oscillate between scenes along Earhart's doomed 1937 attempt to circumnavigate the globe and a by-the-numbers overview of her ascent to success and worldwide celebrity. Along the way, the narrow screenplay also tracks her marriage to publisher George P. Putnam (Richard Gere, playing Richard Gere) and (purported) dalliance with aviation pioneer Gene Vidal (a clumsily used Ewan McGregor). Flashing Earhart's toothy grin, Midwestern lilt, and lanky, androgynous frame, Swank again reminds us that her dual Oscars are no fluke. Too often, however, she is given little to say beyond greeting-card treacle and mildly progressive platitudes. The safe and conventional result, unfortunately, is nothing like the daring, transformative woman at its center. Amelia should have soared. Instead, it simply cruises along on autopilot. Rated PG. —NM

ASTRO BOY—Directed by Aardman Animations vet David Bowers, this origin story takes place in the futuristic Metro City, a floating metropolis carved from an earthen surface it now uses as a giant landfill. When one of Metro's leading scientists (voiced by Nicholas Cage) loses his son, Toby (Freddy Highmore), during a laboratory accident, he implants Toby's neural makeup into a robotic doppelganger equipped with extraordinary powers. Astro Boy finds refuge with defrocked human surface dwellers, with whom he learns lessons about prejudice, heroism and the essence of humanity. Rated PG. —NM

THE BOX—Writer and director Richard Kelly's enigmatic Donnie Darko attained cult classic status after its little-noticed 2001 release. His latest, The Box should attain that status, too. It stars Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as Norma and Arthur Lewis, a couple whose lives become a labyrinth of uncertainty and danger after they are sent a box by a mysterious, disfigured stranger (Frank Langella). This man tells them that if they press the button on the box they will receive a $1 million. The catch? Someone they don't know will die. This ethical quandary proves to be the first test in a labyrinth of trials meant to assess their ethics. Marketed as a horror film, The Box is more of a thriller with its impeccable use of Hitchcockian suspense and Twilight Zone-like twists. While the totality of Kelly's effort is something less than the sum of the parts, most viewers will find it a hair-raising experience nontheless. Rated PG-13. —BD

COCO BEFORE CHANEL—Chanel was a fashion revolutionary. Her designs emphasized not the feminine adornments that men want to see, but the women who wore the clothes. Inspired by menswear, nun habits and sailor jerseys, she simplified and democratized 20th-century styles, proving that comfort and chic could coexist. The woman who did that must have been a force of nature, but one would never know from Audrey Tatou's prim, restrained performance. The film takes place around 1910, with Chanel alienated from her stratified society and the froufrou fashions of the day. Surely, Chanel, not as pretty as Tatou, must have had a dazzling personality to entice all those men, especially the two in particular who shared what the real Chanel called "my hot little body" when the film takes place, more or less around 1910. If only Tatou could have summoned a little more fire, she could have melted the glacial pace of this ambitious biopic. Coco Before Chanel presents an intriguing subject in need of a bit of crisp styling. —LB

COUPLES RETREAT—The kid with coke-bottle glasses from A Christmas Story, aka "Ralphie" (Peter Billingsley) directs this tedious comedy about four couples who visit destination island "Eden" for a little harmonious marriage healing. Perhaps the film's biggest fault is general comedic lameness, the pigeonholing of African American actors into shallow stereotypes and banking on shark attacks and a dry-humping yoga instructor for laughs. —KJ

DISNEY'S A CHRISTMAS CAROL—Combining digital 3-D visuals with a 2.0 version of the animated, performance capture technology he employed five years ago in The Polar Express, director Robert Zemeckis conjures a phantasmagorical retelling of this venerable Victorian morality tale that also fully embraces Charles Dickens' dark themes (too dark for young children, I'm afraid, despite the Disney imprimatur). Jim Carrey pulls multiple voiceover duty, principally as the irascible Ebenezer Scrooge—rendered by Zemeckis as a reptilian apparition whose skeletal frame is seemingly held together only by withered flesh and a dingy overcoat. As 3-D snowflakes appear to fall inside the theater, Zemeckis pulls few punches during visits from Ghosts Past, Present, and Yet to Come (all voiced by Carrey), accurately summoning the sort psychological cataclysm that would instantly wipe away Scrooge's ingrained, crippling avarice. The result is conceptually imaginative and touching, carving out its own, unique place among the myriad adaptations of this holiday classic. Rated PG. —NM

THE FOURTH KIND—Somebody gets taken for a ride in this sci-fi thriller, and it's not the denizens of Nome, Alaska who suffered a high rate of disappearance that this movie tries to blame on aliens but the real-life FBI blamed on alcoholism and the cold. Perhaps it is the purported psychologist and hypnotist "Dr. Abigail Tyler," whose conveniently blurry footage of paranormal activity is interspersed with dramatic reenactments of those same and other unrecorded events (during which she is portrayed by Milla Jovovich). Or, maybe it is director Olatunde Osunsanmi, who seems to buy into the story during replays of his 2002 interview with an ashen, traumatized Tyler (not played by Jovovich). Or, most likely, it's the audience snookered by a tall tale foisted onto them via easily faked material and a notable lack of documented, corroborating evidence. Regardless, not a minute of film rings true—call it Close Encounters of the Absurd Kind. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS—"We prefer the term 'remote viewer,'" the U.S. Army's most gifted psychic spy corrects a civilian not in the know. Based on the 2004 book of the same name, Grant Heslov's film looks at the Army's attempt in the 1980s to integrate New Age psychic methods into its more conventional tactics. Acting on a tip, Michigan journalist Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) meets renowned "Jedi Warrior" Lyn Cassady (George Clooney). Cassady's mission: find Bill Django (a Lebowski-esque Jeff Bridges), the creator and original leader of the First Earth Battalion. While the two travel across Iraq together, Cassady fills in Wilton on the group's notable players, such as Larry Hooper (passively villainous Kevin Spacey), as well as its history and projects. (Incidentally, most of experiments took place at Ft. Bragg.) There's actually relatively little staring at goats here; the experiments focus more on cloudbursting and walking through walls. Despite the intriguing premise, the film doesn't quite deliver on its potential. Rated R. —SE

MICHAEL JACKSON'S THIS IS ITThis isn't the authoritative Jackson concert film—for that, watch the Live in Bucharest concert DVD filmed during his Dangerous tour in 1997-98. Instead, it's a last look at the highlights of Jackson's solo catalog and a poignant coda to his lifework. Audiences will walk away sure of two things: It would have been a hell of a concert, and it was—leaving all else aside—a brilliant career. Rated PG. —NM

MY ONE AND ONLY­—A 15-year-old-boy walks into a Cadillac dealership with a pocketful of cash. His mother, Anne (Renée Zellweger), needs a car, since she's leaving his father (Kevin Bacon), a philandering band leader. Her only marketable skill is flirtation, and she is sure (and surely deluded) that somewhere there's a man suited to care for her and her two teenaged sons. The younger boy (Logan Lerman) is a moody would-be writer fond of The Catcher in the Rye, and the older (Mark Rendell) is an aspiring actor, currently embroidering a shirt commemorating the trio's cross-country journey. Director Richard Loncraine's sepia-toned tale is leisurely and the period sense is meticulous, if a bit awry. All the men gush over Anne's Botoxed beauty, but Zellweger's faded belle is the least interesting character. Neither earth-shattering nor ground-breaking, My One and Only quietly entertains, as two creative sons (one destined for real-life movie stardom) reluctantly learn to parent their parent. Rated PG-13. —LB

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY—Director-writer Oren Peli's focus on the slow-burning tension and fear between the couple and their paranormally charged environment is momentarily entrancing but the amateur affect of the leads and a tired bag of fright tricks ultimately undermine this film's Blair Witch aspirations. Rated R. —KJ

PIRATE RADIO­Love Actually writer-director Richard Curtis' crisp new film Pirate Radio is the story of a renegade radio station broadcasting from a boat anchored in the North Sea near Britain in 1966. The movie is built on a string of gags, games and lightly handled plot turns that allow Curtis to get away with making a softball shaggy dog story while delivering a clever parody of his film's potential sanctimoniousness. Star DJ "The Count" is played by Philip Seymour Hoffman in a role that displays what is most magnificent about him as an actor: the way his indefatigable sameness from role to role proves that acting is magnetism and truth rather than transformation or disappearance into a role. He's one of many likable goofballs making up the Radio Rock team, almost all of whom provide at least a handful of genuine laughs. Besides an embarrassingly unfunny turn from Kenneth Branagh, the soundtrack is the most troubling thing about Pirate Radio. I like The Who as much as the next guy (and the next guy and the next guy) but Pirate Radio would have been livened up a bit by bands like The Pretty Things, The Monks or—even better—someone we've never heard of. Rated R. —NG

A SERIOUS MAN—The Coen brothers' A Serious Man takes place almost exclusively in 1967 in the Jewish community of a small town in Minnesota that the social upheaval of the '60s hasn't fully reached yet, where the aforementioned serious man, college professor Larry, is watching his life fall apart. His wife is leaving him for a widower whose dearly departed is "barely cold," his brother is getting in trouble with the law, a flunking student's father is threatening a lawsuit, and—disaster of all disasters—F-Troop is coming in fuzzy. While this is in many ways an unlikable film with (at best) questionable intent, it would be irresponsible not to marvel at its formal efficiency and reckless anti-philosophy. A Serious Man is not a serious movie, but it demands a complicated response. Rated R. —NG

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE—Director Spike Jonze expands Maurice Sendak's acclaimed 48-page, 10-sentence children's book with the same visual and narrative daring he brought to Being John Malkovich. After an unhappy young boy, Max (Max Records), throws a violent temper tantrum one night for the benefit of his divorced, equally melancholy mom (Catherine Keener), he dons a wolf costume and retreats to an imaginary island inhabited by large talking beasts. Wth its emphasis of mood, the film ends up being more a portrait of sadness and disillusionment than a story about fully realized characters racked with those same emotions. Rated PG. —NM
