Opening This Week

BLADES OF GLORY—Will Ferrell channels the same dim-witted, bloated buffoon he's played in most recent films as Chazz Michael Michaels, a sex-obsessed, leather-clad figure skater. Joining Ferrell is Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), who plays the Dorothy Hamill-haired rival, Jimmy MacElroy. Making fun of Olympic sports may be just fine, and a bevy of figure skating icons are on board but sometimes the film breaches the line of campy fun by exploiting gay stereotypes for an already sexually-anxious teenage set to laugh at and mock. See review on page 53. Rated PG-13. —KJ

THE LOOKOUT—It takes chutzpah for an already acclaimed screenwriter such as Scott Frank to set a sublime script within a well-worn genre like the "heist flick," make it his directorial debut and still produce a cinematic gem. Erstwhile high school golden boy Chris Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) lives with the effects of a post-car crash brain injury until a former classmate (Matthew Goode) recruits him to help rob the local bank. This intelligent neo-noir boasts a superb cast, especially budding star Gordon-Levitt and Jeff Daniels as Chris' blind roommate. See review on page 52. Rated R. —NM

MEET THE ROBINSONS—Vacillating between unbearably saccharine and insufferably frantic, the latest dud from Disney Feature Animation is a cloying, confusing bit of CG-sigh. Lewis (officially voiced by Daniel Hansen, although Jordan Fry also gets a credit), a precocious 12-year-old orphan/inventor looking for his birth mother, meets young stranger Wilbur Robinson (Wesley Singerman), who whisks Lewis into the future in a time machine to track down the dastardly Bowler Hat Guy (director Stephen J. Anderson), a Snidely Whiplash clone and the film's lone highlight. This troubled production was delayed from its original December '06 release date, and even some much-reported Pixar retooling cannot salvage a plot purloined from Back to the Future Part II featuring disparate, inconsequential characters like a purple octopus butler, a Sinatra-esque frog and a gonzo uncle voiced by Adam West. It is an exhausting, unfunny and disjointed spectacle that squanders its modicum of poignancy. Rated G. —NM

THE NAMESAKE—Gogol Ganguli is mortified by his first name, a mark of his Indian parents' eccentricity. What possessed his father to name him after his favorite author, the Russian Nikolai Gogol? Gogol struggles to decide what's meaningful to him amidst the masala of his suburban American life and his family's stubborn Bengali traditions. Director Mira Nair and screenwriter Sooni Taraporevala's richly textured adaptation of Jhumpa Lahiri's novel is unusually faithful to the book's spirit, a meditation on how the most meaningful personal rebellions sometimes have deeply conservative roots. See review on page 52. Rated PG-13. —LB

Current Releases

300—Directed by Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead) as a cinematic adaptation of Sin City author Frank Miller's graphic novel 300, this film attempts to retell the story of the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C., where a force of 300 spirited Spartans fight off a million man march of pillaging Persians. But Snyder gets lost in the eye-popping details of Miller's pulp fiction world—the historical context becomes muddled as the film turns into a school boy's fantasy of a romanticized militant society and ends up as little more than a green screen's wet dream. 300 takes the cake in the realm of visual excess: It's a smorgasbord of mangled limbs, stone-cold skulls and blood splatters set up squarely against sexed-up images of warriors with abs of steel, excessive piercings and a few naked breasts and orgy-rific bare bottoms. Rated R. —KJ

AMAZING GRACE—Director Michael Apted commemorates the 200th anniversary of the law banning the slave trade in the British Empire with a hagiography of abolitionist MP William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd). Apted takes an important historical episode and sets it inside an echo chamber of parliamentary brinkmanship and guilty white hand-wringing with barely a mention of the sober economic, sociological and political arguments offered in defense of, in hindsight, an indefensible industry. Rated PG. —NM

BLACK SNAKE MOAN—Craig Brewer, the Memphis-based auteur of Hustle & Flow, serves up another steaming slice of distinctive Southern cinema with a musical core: this time, the blues. Rated R. —GC

BREAKING AND ENTERING—Diluted and languorous, Anthony Minghella's tedious tome about the changing state of British society (perhaps) and its ever-increasing class/cultural divide (maybe?) works hard at exploring lots of thematic byroads but ultimately goes nowhere. Rated R. —NM

THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA—A bit like Lord of the Rings Lite, a starter fantasy minus the carnage of those aimed at older viewers. Rated PG. —LB

DEAD SILENCE—Director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell were once doomsday prophets, ushering in the dawn of the slyly moralizing, orchestrated mutilations of the modern horror flick through their film debut, Saw. But their second cinematic pairing proves to be composed of less visceral vogue and more B-flick, Ed Wood-styled retro-horror fiascos than anything else. Rated R. —KJ

GHOST RIDERDaredevil writer/director Mark Steven Johnson tops himself, and not in a good way, by adapting another B-list Marvel superhero into an overwritten, overwrought film. Rated PG-13. —ZS

GOD GREW TIRED OF US—Directors Christopher Quinn and Tom Walker chronicle the journey of three "Lost Boys of Sudan" from Kenya's Kakuma refugee camp and the bloody second Sudanese civil war to the streets of Pittsburgh and Syracuse. Although too much time is spent on "fish out of water" vignettes, this Sundance-winning film quickly finds its quiddity once the microscope focuses on the men's new American home, where they find a culture founded upon a heritage of immigrants yet wracked with dysfunction over its multiculturalism and capitalist excesses. Rated PG. —NM

THE HILLS HAVE EYES II—Wes Craven may have been king of low-rent '70s grindhouse horror, but this sequel, co-written with son Jonathan, knocks him squarely off that hallowed throne. Directed by music-video maven Martin Weisz, this blood-spattered follow-up to the somewhat substantial 2006 remake is visceral and crude, relying more on scenes of smashed brains and severed limbs than a concrete plot, ultimately causing the film to lose the militant mettle of its previous post-nuclear dialogue and cash in on formulaic, phoned-in horror tricks. The hills are still full of vengeful, murderous mutants but the apocalyptic parable has vanished into thin air and replaced by anti-war propaganda from a comatose Craven. Rated R. —KJ

THE HOST—This South Korean hit about a dysfunctional family trying to rescue the youngest member from a giant prawn/tadpole thing created by pollution is a funny, subversive, genuinely scary treat. See it now before the inevitable American remake. Rated R. —ZS

I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE—Chris Rock does French New Wave? Well, at least a loose remake of Eric Rohmer's Chloe in the Afternoon starring Rock as Richard, a Manhattan investment banker with a nuclear family and a bad case of the seven-year itch. Enter sultry Nikki (Kerry Washington), an old friend looking to ignite new sparks. Rated R. —NM

THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND—A bravura performance by Forest Whitaker as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin anchors this smart, engrossing drama about a Third World country's nightmarish descent into tyranny. Rated R.—GC

THE LAST MIMZY—Two children, Noah and Emma (Chris O'Neil and Rhiannon Leigh Wryn) find a mysterious puzzle box washed up near their lakeshore home. They fiddle and play with the mysterious objects inside, which includes Mimzy, an ominous stuffed bunny which purrs like a Tribble. At first, it's unclear whether their find is good or evil, and only the PG rating reassures us that something ghastly isn't afoot. There's some serious nerdy boy bonding between Noah and his science teacher, played winningly by Office denizen Rainn Wilson. Ultimately, spooky Emma, played by the accomplished Wyrn, takes center stage. A trippy meld of Tibetan Buddhism, nanotechnology and Alice in Wonderland, The Last Mimzy takes some unexpected turns (at least for those unfamiliar with the 1943 source work by Lewis Padgett), has a welcome message of environmental activism and thankfully eschews potty humor, condescension and kid-lit clichés. —LB

THE LIVES OF OTHERS—It is no coincidence that German writer-director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck sets this socio-thriller about repression in Communist-ruled East Germany during the year 1984, as the German Democratic Republic was the literal fruition of an Orwellian dystopia. A secret police agent (Ulrich Mühe) engaging in warrantless searches and surveillance finds redemption through exposure to an embattled playwright (Sebastian Koch) and his actress girlfriend (Martina Gedeck). Donnersmarck crafts a sublime, somber and visually subfusc portrait of a modern-day police state and its timorous citizenry, who carry on as people they are not in obedience to a spurious nation-state. Rated R. —NM

MUSIC AND LYRICS—The script is tried and true: '80s has-been pop artist Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant) links up with Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore), a neurotic plant-waterer, poet and lyricist, to pen a hit song for a Shakira-esque pop tart. Rated PG-13. —KJ

NAMASTEY LONDON (HELLO LONDON)—Thoroughly Westernized London brat Jazz, for Jasmeet, (Katrina Kaif) is hastily married off during a holiday in India to Arjun, a Punjabi farmer (Akshay Kumar) after her father (Rishi Kapoor) discovers her British boyfriend. Weirdly resembling a lame Bollywood version of The Namesake, with its tension between immigrant parents and assimilated offspring, Namastey falters with its off-putting characters. Jazz is spoiled and rude, without any redeeming qualities whatsoever, and noble Arjun's stubborn pursuit of her is inexplicable. Just because the script says you should care about these people doesn't mean you can. This is a rom-com breakdown in any language. Katrina is devoid of either talent or charisma, and even the delightful Akshay can't save this one. Not rated. —LB

NORBIT—Eddie Murphy does little here to diminish his status as a comic genius. Rated PG-13. —NM

PREMONITION—Apparently, in the movies, not believing in God gets you a one-way ticket to the Twilight Zone. Rated PG-13. —ZS

PRIDE—The textured tableau here is evocative of Charles Stone III's recent slices of African-American life, but the film gets bogged down once it wades into the deep end of the melodramatic pool. Rated PG. —NM

REIGN OVER ME—That Alan Johnson (Don Cheadle) is drawn to his ex-dental school roommate Charlie's (Adam Sandler) awful plight out of concern is understandable, since Charlie lost his wife and children to Sept. 11. But, for Alan to somehow envy Charlie's tragedy-fueled independence is absurd. In this film, 9/11 loss is propped up as justification for a mentally deranged man-child's selective boorish behavior. However, when writer-director Mike Binder suddenly casts Charlie as a metaphor for America's fractured post-9/11 psyche, is only adds insult to illogic. Rated R. —NM

SHOOTER—Occasional references to WMD, the 9/11 report and Abu Ghraib add a dash of zeitgeist to the thriller's early goings, but once Danny Glover's Defense Department heavy and Ned Beatty's Cheney-esque U.S. senator start mumbling and stumbling around, the entire spectacle devolves into a flaccid, left-wing wet dream. With Mark Wahlberg. Rated R. —NM

TMNT—Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Say no more. Rated PG.

THE ULTIMATE GIFT—One of the more able recent offerings from the Fox Faith Movies brood. Rated PG. —NM

WILD HOGS—Not so much bad as painfully pointless. Rated PG-13. —NM

ZODIAC—Director David Fincher (Se7en) crafts a spellbinding dissection of the Zodiac serial murders that terrorized Northern California in the late 1960s. Rated R. —NM
