Opening This Week

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL—Keanu Reeves does his best alien impression in this remake of the landmark 1951 sci-fi film. Rated PG-13.

DELGO—Animated fantasy featuring the vocal talent of Tiger Beat's favorite celebrities of 1995. Rated PG.

MILK—A necessary film that's long overdue: The latest from Gus Van Sant is the story of Harvey Milk (Sean Penn), the gay rights activist and San Francisco city supervisor who was slain by a colleague in 1978. As a biopic of an iconic figure, it manages to be noble without being full of itself, while providing plenty of the little pleasures of movie-going. Milk is a rallying cry for those already "recruited" (as Milk himself might jokily call them) to the cause of gay rights, and it's accessible enough for the open-minded who might still need convincing. Read our review. Rated R. —NG

NOTHING LIKE THE HOLIDAYS—Ensemble piece about a dysfunctional clan, with Debra Messing, John Leguizamo and Alfred Molina. Rated PG-13.

RAB NE BANA DI JODI (GOD MATCHES A COUPLE)—One of the most hotly anticipated Bollywood releases of the year stars Shah Rukh Khan as a mousy guy who falls for a vivacious girl. She convinces him to compete in a dance themed reality show, just as much of an obsession in India as here. Writer-director Aditya Chopra (who has limited himself to producing in recent years) made SRK a superstar with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in 1995...a film so beloved that it still runs in one Mumbai movie hall. —LB

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE—Blending historical perspective, grim reality, whimsy and starry-eyed romance, director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting) crafts a masterful cinematic masala about an 18-year-old Muslim and former street orphan suspected of cheating during his successful run on a Hindi version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? His resulting torture and interrogation reveals the details of his hardscrabble life. The script for this epic character-driven, post-modern Dickensian tale deftly incorporates much of India's religious/ cultural conflict and transformation. But, at the film's heart beats a redemptive, romantic, rags-to-rajah fable that transcends its jaundiced milieu. Read our review. Rated R. —NM

Current Releases

AUSTRALIAAustralia is no less than a Gone with the Wind for the new millennium. Director Baz Luhrmann layers the Western, the war movie and the romantic epic together with conniving villains and meditations on race and history into an absorbing and eye-catching tour de force. Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman), an uptight aristocrat, arrives in her remote Australian cattle station to find her husband murdered. She prevails upon The Drover (Hugh Jackman) for help, and ravishing romance soon follows. Luhrmann says he dreamed of making an epic about his homeland that echoed the adventure films he loved as a boy, and Australia is a fine addition to the canon of classic films about resourceful people living in tumultuous times. Luhrmann, however, seems to have taken the "epic" moniker rather seriously—his film is around three hours long (isn't it time to reinvent the intermission, too?)—and while it does have its longeurs (and two or three climaxes), its rip-roaring pace rarely flags. —LB

BOLT—The star of this 3-D animated spectacle is a small white shepard (voiced by John Travolta) who's lived his whole life as the star of his own action TV show, in which he possesses superpowers and does battle alongside his owner, a young girl named Penny (Miley Cyrus). After Bolt gets accidentally airmailed off the studio lot, he embarks on a cross-country journey back to Hollywood, aided by a loner feline and an over-caffeinated, TV-addicted hamster. A cleverer plot would delve more into the film's central query of whether it is better to live an extraordinary fantasy or a mundane reality. Bolt bears the earmarks of good breeding, its dramatic bite doesn't quite match up to its bark. Rated PG. —NM

THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS—Adapted from John Boyce's novel, this Holocaust film's strength lies in the power of the audience's preexisting ideas about the horrors of the era. 8-year-old Bruno (Asa Butterfield) and his family move near the Jewish concentration camp where his father (David Thewlis) is commandant. Searching for adventure, Bruno wanders near the camp's fenced perimeter, where he befriends a young prisoner named Shmuel (Jack Scanlon). There is subtle power channeled through Bruno's naiveté that writer-director Mark Herman uses to craft a daedal, affecting fable. But, then comes the dispiriting ending, which is overwrought, illogical and unjustifiable. Rated PG-13. —NM

CADILLAC RECORDS—An anthology of rags-to-riches stories unfolds under the revolving 45 RPM record sign of Chicago's influential Chess Records. Adrien Brody plays Leonard Chess (but what happened to his brother, Phil?), a Jewish junk dealer with a hankerin' for the blues. Essentially plotless, the film follows the intertwined careers of Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Little Walter (Columbus Short) and Etta James (Beyoncé) with substantial cameos by Mos Def as Chuck Berry, Cedric the Entertainer as Willie Dixon (who also narrates) and an electrifying Eamonn Walker as Howlin' Wolf. Truth is stretched (Leonard Chess and Etta James, really?), invented (when exactly did Muddy plug in that guitar?) and glossed over (who did make all the money?) and it runs out of steam by the time there is a ludicrous appearance by ersatz Rolling Stones. But if you want a bluesy pass-time, give it a spin. Rated R. —LB

FOUR CHRISTMASES—Hollywood's newest mass-market holiday film is not great cinema, but neither is it like any other Christmas movie of recent years. Though Four Christmases wraps itself up nicely with the requisite heartwarming ending, along the way it drops some napalm on the Hollywood myth of the nuclear family. Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon—leading a cast that includes Sissy Spacek, Dwight Yoakam, a cougar-ish Mary Steenburgen and Jon Voight—play yuppies of highly dysfunctional origins who are forced to spend Christmas day jogging between a quartet of divorced and profoundly maladjusted parents. The results are sometimes hilarious, often disturbing and occasionally both (Duvall: "I don't want to talk disrespectfully about your mother on Christmas... But that woman is a cheap whore!"). A schmaltzy climax and tasteless potty humor only reinforce a cynical but oddly liberating message: For some, the best place to spend the holidays is as far from home as possible. Rated PG-13. --SW

HAPPY-GO-LUCKYHappy-Go-Lucky is a portrait of a primary school teacher named Poppy, a character who could have been an obnoxious wide-eyed optimist but is in this film a unique, believable young woman with an exacting wit and nimble perception, always equipped with a comeback. She's the antidote to vapid movie happiness, the anti-Amélie. Mike Leigh's film has an unforced flow, driven by the steady, often silly stream of Poppy's zingers, comebacks, one-liners, and mini-monologues. Sally Hawkins' performance carries the movie, baring the multiple layers of her character's charm and intellect. Rated R. —NG

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR—Poured from the same fount as Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers and The Cheetah Girls, this megawatt Disney Channel movie franchise finds its heritage in the cardigan karaoke of the 1950s, the beach party films of the 1960s, and Fame in the 1980s. Rated G. —NM

LET THE RIGHT ONE INLet the Right One In, a precious Swedish vampire movie directed by Tomas Alfredson, is a critical success and an art house hit, being met with the kind of hushed awe with which the movie regards itself. It takes place in a small town, following the characters of Oskar—a shy, bullied preteen—and his new next door neighbor, Eli—a well-meaning, standoffish vampire girl. Lingering on his neatly arranged set-ups, rarely moving the camera, Alfredson has created the illusion of something contemplative—profound, even. But his film uses the metaphor-ready vampire template to tell a shopworn story about a bullied kid who finds refuge with another outcast. Call it backlash if you like, but I think Let the Right One In is a phony film. Rated R. —NG

MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA—The best thing that can be said about this animated sequel is that it will entertain youngsters under the age of 10. Of course, the same can be said about an animatronic jug band at Chuck E. Cheese's, which might, come to think of it, rival the second Madagascar film in plot depth and originality. For kids, the plotting merely marks time between appearances by Sacha Baron Cohen's hyperactive, self-assured lemur Julien. For everyone else, only the return of those sardonic penguins provides any real chuckles. Rated PG. —NM

PUNISHER: WAR ZONE—The once-great Marvel Comics series continues its downward slide with the second film in a franchise that is starting to look suspiciously like straight-to-video material. Attention, fans of The Wire: Dominic "McNulty" West plays Jigsaw, the archenemy of the title character. Rated R.

RACHEL GETTING MARRIED—Anne Hathaway plays Kym, a recovering junkie who comes home for her sister Rachel's wedding. Kym blames her insecurities on her family, even as she tries to make amends with Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt). While too many scenes focus on Kym and Rachel hammering out their differences, a fine supporting cast and Jonathan Demme's keen eye for how to direct the large ensemble of wedding guests makes Rachel much better than its limp premise promises. Rated R. —NG

QUANTUM OF SOLACE—Despite its heralded reboot with Daniel Craig as a buffer, badder and meaner Bond, the latest entry in the 007 franchise is filled with conservative fodder that is surprisingly dependent on plot devices and ideas from earlier, less edgy incarnations. This time, Bond chases a shadowy syndicate, QUANTUM, that has infiltrated MI6 and the CIA, evoking the Red Scare fears of the 1950s. The villain du jour is the lamely dubbed Dominic Greene (whatever happened to Oddjob and May Day?), played by Mathieu Amalric. What elevates even this middling Bond chapter is the presence of Craig. His 007 is taciturn and seemingly emotionally cold, but he is actually a more human Bond, one who bleeds when injured and constantly does battle with his stifling neuroses. Rated PG-13. —NM

SOUL MEN—Louis Hinds (Samuel L. Jackson) and Floyd Henderson (Bernie Mac) are former backup singers in a 1960s R&B trio who became estranged after their lead left for a solo career. After their ex-partner dies, Hinds and Henderson call a truce and embark on a road trip for a tribute concert at Harlem's Apollo Theater. The result is a satisfying mix of hilarity and melancholy, the latter fueled by the recognition that Mac and Isaac Hayes, who makes a cameo, did not live to see this film's release. Rated R. —NM

SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK—Charlie Kaufman makes his directorial debut with Synecdoche, New York, and it's the best thing he's ever been attached to. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Caden Cotard, a deeply depressed theater director who uses a MacArthur grant to launch a massive project that is doomed to incompletion from the outset. Despite its gloomy subject and depressed central character, this is a fun film, and it works through its plethora of preoccupations—sickness, death, marriage, cleanliness, gender, depression, the illusory nature of time to name a few—with uncanny precision. Rated R. —NG

TRANSPORTER 3—Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is a professional pugilist, whose appeal lies mainly in his penchant for pummeling enemies while shirtless. This third installment of the Luc Besson-produced action series follows the template, serving up plenty of road rage fights in slow motion, as well as the inevitable explosions that follow. This time, Statham plays courier for a ragtag team of environmental terrorists whose scheme requires the kidnapping and transporting of the long-legged daughter of a politico. Though the first two Transporter films were brainless, they were occasionally fun; in this one, the anemic plot and inane dialogue sully the charm of Statham's likeable antihero. Rated PG-13. —KJ

TWILIGHT—Setting aside the juvie frenzy associated with Stephanie Meyer's bestselling Twilight series, fact is every couple of years another incarnation of the vampire myth rises from the grave and sinks its teeth into pop culture. Unfortunately, director Catherine Hardwicke's turgid adaptation of a tale of forbidden teen love more closely resembles the pilot for a midseason replacement on The CW. When angst-ridden Bella Swann (Kristen Stewart) relocates to the Pacific Northwest, hunky yet aloof "teen" vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) takes a liking to her and hopes his love overcomes his desire to drink her blood. Little happens in this dalliance besides mediocre acting and even worse dialogue spoken by actors who look as though they prepared for their roles by watching a One Tree Hill marathon interspersed with Abercrombie & Fitch ads. Rated PG-13. —NM
