Film Times & Brief Film Reviews 

Film times are good from Thursday, January 31 through Friday, February 8.

Our rating system uses zero to four stars. If a movie has no rating, it has not been reviewed by Laura Boyes (LB), Godfrey Cheshire (GC), David Fellerath (DF), Kathy Justice (KJ), Neil Morris (NM) or Zack Smith (ZS).

Opening This Week

THE EYE—A remake of the 2002 Hong Kong horror of the same title, this film considers the unforeseen consequences of eye transplants. The appealing cast includes Jessica Alba, Alessandro Nivola and Parker Posey. Rated PG-13.

HANNAH MONTANA & MILEY CYRUS: BEST OF BOTH WORLDS CONCERT—It's take your daughter to the movies day. Not rated.

JIMMY CARTER MAN FROM PLAINS—Jonathan Demme's sharply crafted documentary, which follows the former president and Nobel Peace prize winner during a nationwide book tour in late 2006 and early 2007, provides a bracing if also dismaying reminder that the White House was once occupied by a man of extraordinary intellect, humanity, principle and commitment to global peace. To that, we must add inordinate courage, since the film shows Carter defying the Israel lobby in defending his book Palestine Peace Not Apartheid, which advances a reasoned argument against the Israeli occupation that virtually no sitting or aspiring U.S. politician dare make. Rated PG. —GC

OVER HER DEAD BODY—Eva Longoria Parker plays a preening, self-absorbed shrew scheming mightily to prevent her ex-fiance from dating someone else. In other words, she is playing her Desperate Housewives character, Gabrielle Solis. Here, however, she’s called Kate and, five minutes into the film, she’s crushed by an ice sculpture. From the beyond, the wraithlike Kate watches as her former beau, Henry (Paul Rudd), takes a shine to Ashley (Lake Bell), a middling medium who uses Kate’s old diary to feign contact with Henry’s ex. This prompts Kate to actually materialize and aggravate Ashley into dumping Henry. The uniformly unlikable characters are trumped only by the idiotic dialogue, boulder-sized plot holes, and rank miscasting: Bell is annoyingly sitcom-y, Rudd’s trademark drollness belies a grieving widower-in-waiting, and Longoria Parker would be better advised to stay on Wisteria Lane. The most prescient aspect of the film turns out to be its title, because this stinker is definitely D.O.A. Rated PG-13. —NM

STRANGE WILDERNESS—An animal show goes to South America in search of Bigfoot. Cast includes hepcats Allen Covert, Steve Zahn and Jonah Hill, and cameos from such big men of yore as Ernest Borgnine and Joe Don Baker. Bring earplugs for the kids. Rated R.

SUNDAY—Seher (Ayesha Takia) a bubbly voice-over artist, can't remember anything about Sunday; OMG, did she commit a murder? This mystery-comedy co-stars Ajay Devgan as the cop who loves her. Ajay has never been funny in anything, unlike Arshad Warshi and Irfaan Khan, his talented co-stars who can lift any project—at least for a moment or two. Not rated. —LB

Current Releases

27 DRESSES—A painfully predictable romance about Jane (Katharine Heigl), a perennial bridesmaid who finds her selfless wedding planning skills tested by her boyfriend-stealing witch of a sister (Malin Akerman, horribly miscast). Flavor-of-the-month James Marsden is introduced as a cynical reporter who constructs sentimental wedding celebrations for a New York daily (a pose contradicted by Marsden's eager toothy smile and bland likeability). As a fluff advocate, one asks for clever fluff! One star though, for best ever use of "Bennie and the Jets." Rated PG-13. —LB

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS—How is it exactly that Alvin, Simon and Theodore are transplanted from their lifelong forest home to the big city already equipped with an awareness of Christmas, the ability to operate sundry household gadgets and a knowledge of the lyrics to songs by Daniel Powter and Pussycat Dolls? Rated PG. —NM

ATONEMENT—Besides some fine performances from James McAvoy and Keira Knightley, Joe Wright's creative camerawork and sublime attention to detail keep this adapation of an Ian McEwen novel afloat through a complex storyline that eventually slides into banality and a slapdash attempt to dissect the oft porous barrier separating fiction and reality, which exists in both the hands of an artist and the minds of the audience. Rated R. —NM

BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT—While the need for a new and improved "final cut" is debatable, the end result is that we have an excuse to go see a gorgeous new print of Ridley Scott's 1982 classic. The film's celebrated mise en scene, which depicts a multicultural, hard-wired future in an exhausted, image-saturated culture, is all too current while other design features, such as Sean Young's costumes and some unfortunate George Lucas-style set models, have dated badly. Still, the film's haunting moments more than mitigate its most grievous flaws. Rated R. —DF

CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR—Topnotch Hollywood moviemaking, Mike Nichols' geopolitical comedy tells the true story of a dissolute Texas congressman who, in the 1980s, takes on as a personal crusade aiding the Afghan resistance to Soviet occupation. Aaron Sorkin's funny, fast-paced script provides a wonderful platform for Tom Hanks as the bibulous Wilson, Julia Roberts as his sultry right-wing benefactress and Philip Seymour Hoffman as his man in the CIA. Rated R. —GC

CLOVERFIELD—Producer J.J. Abrams' modern-day disaster flick opens with young New Yorkers throwing a going-away party for one of their own, all of them preoccupied with the relatively benign intrigues of budding adulthood. However, their micro-problems are abruptly eclipsed by the surreal, apocalyptic catastrophe of a colossal creature (resembling something that wandered off the set of The Mist) laying waste to The Big Apple. Along with The Host, this is the most gripping, angst-ridden monster movie of the last quarter-century. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY—Painter-turned-filmmaker Julian Schnabel adapts the international bestseller in which French magazine editor Jean-Dominique Bauby described falling victim to a rare condition known as "locked-in syndrome." Rather than moral uplift, Schnabel's version emphasizes first the sensory strangeness of Bauby's experience and then the difficult process of adjustment; the lengthy sequences of his learning to communicate will strike different viewers as fascinating or tiresome. Rated PG-13. —GC

ENCHANTED—Amy Adams gives an energetic performance as a cartoon fairy tale princess sent to the real world, but the film doesn't really explore the possibilities of its premise. And how many times can James Marsden not get the girl? Rated PG. —ZS

FIRST SUNDAY—Two inept criminals (Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan) cook up a scheme to rob a church. Things don't go quite as planned. Rated PG-13.

THE GREAT DEBATERS—Denzel Washington's direction lags far behind his usual fine work in front of the camera, here as debate coach, professor and legendary poet Melvin B. Tolson. The earnest, formulaic script conveniently assigns to Wiley the "correct" side of every debate: It is not hard to sound inspired when you are arguing in favor of welfare, school integration, civil disobedience and economic equality. Rated PG-13. —NM

HOW SHE MOVE—Feel good with this tale of a poor girl who triumphs with her talent for step dancing. Rated PG-13.

I AM LEGEND—Will Smith does solid work in this polished, tense, big-budget remake of the '70s Charlton Heston-starrer The Omega Man, about a man left alone in a city—except for hordes of night-feeding zombies—after a global plague. Although anticipated by 28 Days Later and Vanilla Sky, the views of a depopulated Manhattan are spectacular and suitably eerie. While Smith has few human costars, he gets nice support from a German shepherd. Directed by Francis Lawrence. Rated PG-13. —GC

JUNO—Imbued with a rapid-fire, Gen-Y argot, Diablo Cody's script not only tackles touchy life lessons without sanctimony but also finds hilarity as a so-called "teenage comedy" without the crutch of defiled desserts or an endless string of profane Apatowisms. Of course, it helps when your dialogue is being delivered by Ellen Page, who, at age 20, realizes the potential only hinted at in 2005's Hard Candy. As the self-styled "smartest person in the room," Juno must come to grips with the film's overarching theme that maturity is not merely a reluctant acceptance of responsibility, but instead the reclassification of cool. Rated PG-13. —NM

MEET THE SPARTANS—Another spoof movie pollutes the multiplexes. The biggest names mustered here are Carmen Electra and Method Man but the movie also contains look-alikes of Britney, Paris and Lindsay. Just shoot us. Rated PG-13.

MAD MONEY—Callie Khouri has a history of wooing females with scripts that capitalize on the power of sisterhood, as with Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and Thelma and Louise. This time around, even Khouri can't revive the tired plot of this fab femme fiasco. Mad Money banks on the premise that good-hearted people sometimes do bad things, so we see frantic Diane Keaton, ditzy Katie Holmes and sharp-tongued Queen Latifah playing low-income workers at the Federal Reserve who decide to steal recycled cash. When the shit hits the fan and the police bust the trio, the film gets soppier than a wet Kleenex, complete with faux feminist special pleading. Rated PG-13. —KJ

NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS—Everyone loves a treasure hunt, and Nicholas Cage leads a landmark-heavy jaunt stretching from the Eiffel Tower to Mount Rushmore, breezing through some swift piffle about John Wilkes Booth's diary and Cibola, the legendary pre-Columbian city of gold. I'm all for the PG action-adventure movie; instead of ghettoizing the taste of little kids into "child-friendly" dreck, let's let them dream of growing up to be a kick-ass Library of Congress archivist. Rated PG. —LB

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN—Faultlessly mounted, with terrific performances and a formal sheen worthy of Hitchcock, the movie only stumbles in its final section, where Cormac McCarthy's apocalyptic allegorizing overwhelms dramatic sense. Rated R. —GC

THE ORPHANAGE—Director Juan Antonio Bayona's feature debut is derivative in both style and narrative (as are most horror films), borrowing from Henry James' The Innocents, The Devil's Backbone by Guillermo del Toro (who co-produces and "presents" this film), The Others and even Peter Pan. Still, a labyrinthine plot and cloying climax might have been more debilitating were it not for Rueda's bravura performance. Rated R. —NM

P.S I LOVE YOU—Hillary Swank stars as a young widow who discovers her late husband has left her a message with 10 tips for happier living. That bastard. Rated PG-13.

RAMBO—John Rambo has kept a low profile since his Reagan-era heyday. Now he's in Thailand, investigating the massacre of Christian missionaries at the hands of a repressive Burmese general. There will be blood... Asian blood. Rated R.

THE SAVAGES—A middle-aged brother and sister, in the midst of lives filled with failed relationships and thwarted career aspirations, face hard choices when they're obliged to put their dementia-stricken father into a nursing home. That may not sound like the premise for one of the year's best comedies, but the brilliance of Tamara Jenkins' film is that it manages to find humor in a difficult life passage while not underplaying its thornier emotions. Jenkins' note-perfect script and nuanced direction support terrific performances from Philip Seymour and Laura Linney as the Savage siblings and Philip Bosco as their cantankerous dad. Rated R. —GC

SWEENEY TODD—Tim Burton's hundred-mil appreciation of Stephen's Sondheim's operetta has a brilliant cast and ravishing silent film-inspired production design. It also boasts copious bloodletting and a ghoulish sense of humor. Rated R. —LB

TAARE ZAMIN PAR (EVERY CHILD IS SPECIAL)—An academic disaster, 8-year old Ishaan (Darsheel Safary) is packed off by his desperate parents to boarding school, a nightmare for his sensitive soul and dyslexic brain. Darsheel and his chipped-toothed overbite steal the film, an exercise in special pleading to lossen up rigid Indian schools. Not rated. —LB

() THERE WILL BE BLOOD—P.T. Anderson's adaptation of Upton Sinclair's Oil! stars Daniel Day-Lewis as a frightening wildcatter at the turn of the last century. Neil Morris says the film is a "riveting character study and a scorching metaphor" and a "Faustian fever dream that deconstructs both the Horatio Alger myth and the American ethos of success." But Godfrey Cheshire says despite a riveting first hour, the "film begins to sacrifice sense to sensation, commencing a spiral from well-calibrated drama into an ever more portentous and overwrought Grand Guignol." Rated R.

U2 3D—While U2 has filmed countless concert videos over the years, its newest combines ever-evolving 3D technology with the immense IMAX experience to create, if not the best concert film ever, then certainly the most sensory and innovative one. The result is a sight to behold, replicating the rattle and hum of being part of a live audience yet, through its bevy of omnipresent 3D cameras, even providing a periodic glimpse into how to it feels to be onstage before a stadium full of screaming, chanting and pulsating fans. Even a film comprised solely of footage from various concerts throughout the band's global "Vertigo" tour is going to have its moments of Bono's political grandstanding synthesized into performance art. But, when the band begins grinding out the opening chords to "New Year's Day," it again becomes all about the music, man. Rated G. —NM

UNTRACEABLE—The one intriguing aspect of this update of the psycho-killer genre is that the Internet is used to sate the two usually divergent cravings of the serial killer: attention and anonymity. What is quite traceable, however, about this formula pic is its cinematic pedigree: Indeed, it is hypocritical to lambaste the public's insatiable appetite for Web smut in a commercial feature film that patterns itself after the Saw series, Se7en, Feardotcom and many, many others. Diane Lane plays the FBI cyber agent assigned to the case. Rated R. —NM
