Opening This Week

BLOOD DONE SIGN MY NAME—Based on the acclaimed memoir and history book by Duke University scholar Tim Tyson, the racially motivated murder of Henry "Dickie" Marrow and the resistance movement that flowed out of it onto the streets of Oxford, N.C. still packs a wallop 40 years later. Writer-director (and N.C. native) Jeb Stuart retools Tyson's sweeping thesis into a two-part narrative: The opening act focuses on Tim's father, the Rev. Vernon Tyson (Rick Schroder), a Methodist minister whose efforts to foster racial integration from the pulpit were met with strong resistance; the second half chronicles Marrow's murder, the subsequent sham trial and the unrest that followed. Despite a commendable focus on the African-American perspective, Stuart's directorial presentation is as rote as a made-for-TV movie and does little to distinguish this effort from the many other films about Southern racism and the civil rights movement. Rated PG-13. Read our review.NM

SHUTTER ISLAND—Martin Scorsese and Leonardio DiCaprio collaborate again on this thriller, based on a novel by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River), about a U.S. Marshall investigating the disappearance of a murderer from a hospital for the criminally insane. Rated R. Read our review.

Current Releases

AVATAR—The hardest thing to stomach about Avatar is James Cameron's delusion that—with a few possible exceptions—there is nothing to laugh about in this schmaltzy, wanna-be epic about an ex-marine who falls in love with a giant blue cartoon. Self-serious and chock full of New Age hokum, Avatar is trippier in the scenes that take place on the military base, where 3-D effects give the film an eerie ground-shifting feel, than it is in its fantasyland of the planet Pandora, where giant blue humanoids prance around in faux-hippie jewelry and make feline hissing sounds when they're angry. Many Oscar nominations for this one. Rated PG-13. —NG

THE BLIND SIDE—Another sanctimonious tale masquerading as story of hope and inspiration. Sandra Bullock is the matriarch of a well-heeled Memphis family that becomes guardians to a homeless teenage man-child, Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), in hopes of improving his life, grades and, oh by the way, his chances at a college scholarship. Oscar nomination for Bullock. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE BOOK OF ELI—Denzel Washington stars as Eli, a man with a divine mission in this production from the Hughes Brothers (From Hell; American Pimps). Earth has been ravaged by nuclear war, leaving its inhabitants desperate for food, water and shelter. In his journey, Eli stumbles upon a town run by Carnegie (Gary Oldman), who has made himself its ruler by monopolizing the water supply. Carnegie is in search of a very special book, one that could prove to be extremely powerful in conquering the masses. Interestingly enough, Eli happens to have the last remaining copy and refuses to give it up, thus setting in motion a bloody chain of events. A few plot twists will have audience members at the edge of their seats, but ultimately the film leaves us wondering, "What's the point?" Rated R. —BD

CRAZY HEART—This story of a alcoholic country singer who turns his life around with the help of a young woman and her son recalls Tender Mercies, which gave Robert Duvall his only Academy Award. Playing middle-aged boozy crooner "Bad" Blake, Jeff Bridges is likely to turn this film—in which Duvall co-stars—into his own Oscar vehicle. Besides its derivative storyline, co-screenwriter Scott Cooper's directorial debut suffers from a lack of chemistry between Bad and the much younger Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal, also Oscar-nominated for her performance). While Crazy Heart is the cinematic equivalent of a country-standard cover band, Bridges' solo act is the showstopper. Rated R. —NM

DEAR JOHN—While visiting his father's beach house in Charleston, S.C. while on leave from duty as an Army Ranger, John Tyree (Tatum) meets and falls for Savannah (Amanda Seyfried), a doe-eyed college student. Dear John goes AWOL as a love story for various reasons, including director Lasse Hallström's ponderous direction, which distills John and Savannah's coupling down to frolicking in the surf, making out in the rain and monotonous voiceovers of their overseas letters to each other. But, its saving grace is the complicated relationship between John and his father, played with great skill by Richard Jenkins. Rated PG-13. —NM

EDGE OF DARKNESS—After an eight-year acting hiatus, Mel Gibson returns to the big screen with this film about a cop, Tom Craven, who sees his only daughter murdered right in front of him. This propels Craven into a fit of vengeance as he tries to find her killer, initially believing that he was the intended victim. Sometimes the over-the-top action sequences distract from the story's importance; we find ourselves wondering whether a man of Gibson's age—54—really could narrowly escape death over and over. But this movie is not for people who ask such questions. Rated R. —BD

FROM PARIS WITH LOVE—Bespectacled, buttoned-up James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) acts as the ambassador's assistant at the American embassy in Paris, a job that involves such diplomatic skills as planting bugs and switching vehicles' license plates. Then he's paired with Charlie Wax (John Travolta), a rebel flown over to the City of Lights, for Reece's first special-ops mission. Wax reveals a penchant for cocaine and bloodshed as twist and turns occur at a breakneck pace. Travolta is in his element here as he gleefully tosses off lines like "Wax always gets it done." The gunplay may have little socially redeeming value, but it sure is fun. Rated R. —SE

IT'S COMPLICATED—Do you have the strength to discover another person when someone in whom you have invested a score of years, like an ex-husband, reappears? In any event, the laughs keep coming in this Nancy Meyers comedy, and there is a great comic set piece as the film's central trio (Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin) rediscovers the joys of smoking weed. Rated PG-13. —LB.

THE LAST STATION—Michael Hoffman's smart, well-acted, heavily researched tale of the last days of Leo Tolstoy is a meaty movie for a top-notch cast. Christopher Plummer plays the great man as a rasping, but burdened, old goat, while the finely aging Helen Mirren is glamorous as Sofya, his wife of 48 years. But all is not well: The novelist, so committed to his utopian ideals, has decided to relinquish his wealth and literary copyrights to the Russian people, and his wife is determined to stop it. Tolstoy's ideas are ultimately downplayed in favor of a more digestible historical period piece that reduces the conflict to a sentimental one between Mirren's Sofya and a mustache-twirling prig played by Paul Giamatti. Still, the film quite enjoyable, not least for the performances of Plummer and Mirren, who both received Oscar nominations. With Kerry Condon and James McAvoy. Rated R. —DF

MY NAME IS KHAN—Rizvan Khan (played by Shah Rukh Khan) is a Muslim living in San Francisco with Mandira (Kajol), his Hindu wife. Rizvan has Asperger's Syndrome, and after a 9/11-provoked hate crime against his family, he takes Mandira's angry demand literally that he should tell the United States president, "My name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist." Shah Rukh is India's biggest star, a secular Muslim married to a Hindu, and he and Kajol have been Hindi film's favorite romantic couple, and here reunite after nearly a decade. Shah Rukh's global celebrity stands strongly behind this film's plea for tolerance. This is the new face of Bollywood crossover distributed by Fox Searchlight; a single plot without any lip-synched song and dance. My Name is Khan is well-crafted, and Shah Rukh and Kajol still make onscreen magic together, but if director Karan Johar, the modern master of the masala film, permanently deserts the form, that would be a cinematic shame. Rated PG-13. —LB

PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANSTwilight meets Harry Potter meets etc. in this fantasy about Greek gods, magic powers and attractive teenagers. Rated PG.

SHERLOCK HOLMES—While Guy Ritchie's frenzied filmmaking style is strictly mod, his Holmes—portrayed ably and energetically by Robert Downey Jr.—is informed by Arthur Conan Doyle's intellectually complex, personally flawed literary incarnation. You can almost smell the muck in Ritchie's rendering of 19th-century London, although his editing and pacing are choppy in the best of times. And, when Holmes begins deciphering spells and maps to predict where the villain will strike next, the script takes an turn toward a Victorian-era version of The Da Vinci Code. Rated PG-13. —NM

A SINGLE MAN—Based on the 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, Tom Ford's directing debut is set in 1962 and depicts one day in the life of George Falconer (Colin Firth), a 50ish, gay English college professor living in a Los Angeles glass-and-timber home, eight months after the sudden death of his longtime partner. A Single Man contains moments of filmmaking at its most exquisite, with camerawork, costumes, set designs and a brooding soundtrack so sumptuous and evocative that they essentially become their own characters. Still, the film's pace suffers from a surfeit of slow-motion montage; what rescues the film are the headline performances by the Oscar-nominated Firth and Julianne Moore. Rated R. —NM

THE TOOTH FAIRY—Remember when The Rock was the coolest pro wrestler since Hacksaw Jim Duggan? Neither do we. Rated PG.

UP IN THE AIR—George Clooney stars as Ryan Bingham, a smooth-talking veteran "career transition counselor," a euphemism for being a hired gun paid to handle employee layoffs by corporate bosses too cowardly to do it themselves. Clooney's retro leading-man charisma is perfect for this material, while the talented Anna Kendrick, playing his intense sidekick, would feel right at home in a screwball comedy. Vera Farmiga, as Ryan's love interest and fellow traveler of the friendly skies, radiates the sophistication of classic noir divas. Clooney, Farmiga and Kendrick all received well-deserved Oscar nominations. Rated R. —NM

WHEN IN ROME—The duo responsible for the abysmally unfunny Old Dogs (David Diamond and David Weissman) return to the big screen with this unsavory romance featuring Kristen Bell as Beth, a New Yorker whose long hours as a junior curator at the Guggenheim has forced her to shelve her love life. When a whirlwind trip to Rome causes Beth to question her ideals, the career-driven woman confronts the goddess of love by stealing coins from the Trevi Fountain. The rest of the film is a hit-and, more often-miss sequence of goofy dudes (whose coins were stolen from the fountain) trailing the perky blonde starlet through NYC. Rated PG-13. —KJ

VALENTINE'S DAY—Garry Marshall's latest outing concerns a bevy of Los Angelenos whose lives intersect throughout a day fraught with stressful expectations and romantic confusion. Florist Reed (Ashton Kutcher) proposes to girlfriend Morley (Jessica Alba). Reed's best friend, schoolteacher Julia (Jennifer Garner), is falling head-over-heels for doctor Harrison (Patrick Dempsey), biding her time teaching her elementary school class until she can fly off to meet her lover. Straitlaced Jason (Topher Grace) dates Liz (Anne Hathaway) who moonlights as a phone sex worker,. Neurotic publicist Kara (Jessica Biel) obsesses over her Valentine's party for singles while dealing aging quarterback Sean (Eric Dane). A little boy (Bryce Robinson) agonizes over delivering flowers to his chosen valentine in time, while his grandparents (Hector Elizondo and Shirley MacLaine) weather a rough patch in their 50-plus year marriage. Believe it or not, there's more. Rated PG-13. Rated PG-13. —SE

THE WOLFMAN—This umpteenth werewolf movie aims to revive the genre by harkening back to the original storyline to Lon Chaney Jr.'s classic incarnation in 1941. Not this time. Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro), a 19th-century American stage actor, returns to the English manse of his father (Anthony Hopkins) to track down his brother's killer. For his troubles, Lawrence is bitten by and transforms into a Lycan every full moon (which seems to take place every other night). With its relentlessly insipid dialogue, the film could have worked as satire had it possessed any measure of self-awareness to merit such consideration. Judging by their gleeful turns, only Hopkins and Hugo Weaving—as a Scotland Yard investigator—seem to grasp the inanity of it all. The film only succeeds once the CGI-fur starts to fly—then it more than earns its R rating. Otherwise, this Wolfman is a rather neutered affair. Rated R. —NM

THE YOUNG VICTORIA­— A period piece about the turbulent early years of Queen Victoria's reign must have seemed like a plum role for Emily Blunt, the brunette beauty who has flashed talent and cross-genre versatility in such films as My Summer of Love and The Devil Wears Prada. Unfortunately, Blunt's vitality dissipates in The Young Victoria, a derivative, somnolent biopic directed by Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée (C.R.A.Z.Y.). Rated PG. —NM
