Opening This Week

AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE—The continuing glorious adventures of Master Shake, Meatwad and Frylock. Rated R.

CLIMATES—Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan returns with this excoriating portrait of the death of a relationship between an listless academic and his younger girlfriend. See Film Spotlight on page 55. Not rated. —DF

DISTURBIA— This Rear Window for the YouTube generation has a sound set-up. A troubled teen, Kale (Shia LaBeouf), sentenced to three months' house arrest for slugging his teacher, whiles away his time spying on neighbors using binoculars, camcorders and sundry tech gadgets, including leering at a comely girl-next-door (Sarah Roemer). His pastime reaps benefits once Kale becomes convinced that a neighbor (David Morse) is a serial killer. LaBeouf and Roemer are no Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, but they exude a spunky exuberance that befits the film's contemporary setting, as when a scene of them playfully decorating Kale's house-arrest anklet becomes a sensual escapade. Problems emerge in the final act when the breezy yet taut narrative is cast aside for formulaic chills and thrills that never tie into its earlier themes of voyeurism, modern surveillance and suburban malaise. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE ITALIAN—At a bleak Russian orphanage with a perpetual icy film of moisture in the air, a doleful little boy has a rare chance to be adopted by a sunny Italian couple. He craves his barely remembered mother, and he refuses to leave. The older orphans survive by chicanery, black marketeering and prostitution, and counsel him to forget his past. Clutching a tattered copy of Kipling's The Jungle Book, a book about another wild child returned to civilization, Vanya sets off to find his mother. The Italian starts slowly, returning again and again to the face of anguished little Kolya Spirodonov. Bedeviled by a system who treats him alternately as flotsam or a commodity, but never as a little boy, he stubbornly attempts to choose his own future. Not a cheerful film, and one that portrays the former Soviet Union as pathologically dysfunctional, The Italian does eventually provide vindication for a dreamer. Rated R. —LB

PATHFINDER—A muddled, uneventful exercise in blue-screening, this film somehow found a path out of the February release date in which it truly belongs. Set in pre-Columbian North America, a Viking boy abandoned by his kinsman turns against the marauders as an adult (Karl Urban) after they slaughter his adoptive tribe. The standard revenge formula ensues, replete with incongruous costumes, computer-generated gore camouflaged by a drab palette and hokey dialogue. Urban, looking a bit like Brendan Fraser in George of the Jungle, adds this lead role to Doom and The Chronicles of Riddick in his post-Lord of the Rings cycle of typecasting. The film is bereft of anything remotely interesting, leaving you only to ponder such innocuous queries as why the Native Americans circa 900 A.D. speak English at the same time the Norsemen's dialogue is subtitled. Rated R. —NM

PERFECT STRANGER—Halle Berry is an intrepid journalist who goes undercover as she hunts for a white-collar serial killer. Nudity ensues. Bruce Willis is the other star. Rated R.

REDLINE—With any luck, this movie will be remembered as something other than the one Eddie Griffin was shooting when he crashed the producer's $1.2 million Enzo Ferrari. Rated R.

SLOW BURN—Ray Liotta is the cop and LL Cool J is the gang leader in this urban thriller. Rated R.

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. Rated R. —KJ

ARE WE DONE YET?—To ask the question is to know the answer. A remake of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, with Ice Cube in the Cary Grant role. Rated PG-13.

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. Rated PG-13. —KJ

FIREHOUSE DOG—Director Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle) puts a twist on the doggie-do-good film in this warm hearted tale about a movie star pup who becomes a bona fide fire house hero (read: he saves people from burning buildings). The film misses its mark with a tired satirizing of big budget Hollywood (pampered pooch Rexxx stars in films like The Fast and the Furriest and Jurassic Bark) but hits it home with a poignant look at the father/son relationship as pre-teen Shane Fahey (Josh Hutcherson) learns acceptance and forgiveness from his father (Bruce Greenwood). It's no Benji or Beethoven, but the doggie capers will keep kiddos entertained and parents will appreciate the film's understated moral mettle. Rated PG. —KJ

click to enlarge Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Marley Shelton and Naveen Andrews in Planet Terror, Robert Rodriguez's half of Grindhouse
  • Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Marley Shelton and Naveen Andrews in Planet Terror, Robert Rodriguez's half of Grindhouse
GRINDHOUSE—In this two-director, three-hour, double-feature tribute to exploitation movies of the 1970s, Robert Rodriguez serves up the exuberantly imagined zombie flick Planet Terror, followed by Quentin Tarantino's superior car-chase thriller Death Proof. Though both movies stay expertly within genre bounds, they're even more fascinating as death-of-film meditations (the first shot on DV, the second defiantly on celluloid) with notable religious resonances, especially in Tarantino's latest tribute to the idea of resurrection. Hardly seems coincidental that the film opened at Easter. Rated R. —GC

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 HOAX—Depicting author/con man Clifford Irving's nearly successful 1971 campaign to have McGraw-Hill publish a bogus autobiography of Howard Hughes, this flashy but deeply unsatisfying drama's problems mainly stem from the producers' decision to a hire a hot young screenwriter, William Wheeler, who invents countless episodes and thereby trashes the film's capacity for incisive truth-telling. A modicum of compensation comes in director Lasse Halstrom's deft handling of a fine cast led by Richard Gere and Alfred Molina. Reviewed on page 56. Rated R. —GC

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

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. 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

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. Rated R. —NM

MEET THE ROBINSONS—Vacillating between unbearably saccharine and insufferably frantic, the latest dud from Disney Feature Animation is a bit of CG-sigh. Lewis, a precocious 12-year-old orphan/inventor looking for his birth mother, meets young stranger Wilbur Robinson, who whisks Lewis into the future in a time machine to track down the dastardly Bowler Hat Guy, a Snidely Whiplash clone and the film's lone highlight. Rated G. —NM

MISS POTTER—Renée Zellweger stars as Peter Rabbit creator Beatrix Potter in this catnip for the American Girls demographic. Beatrix is a drab spinster who meets a kindred spirit in publisher Norman Warne (Ewan McGregor). Full of twinkly charm, he enthuses about her "bunny book to conjure with" and sets about making her the best selling children's author of all time. Would that Emily Watson, playing Warne's tart feminist sister, had been cast as Miss Potter. Sugary Zellweger seems a bit demented at times, nattering on with her sometimes-animated little furry friends. Rated PG. ­—LB

NAMASTEY LONDON (HELLO LONDON)—Thoroughly Westernized London brat Jazz is hastily married off during a holiday in India to Arjun, a Punjabi farmer after her father 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. 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. Even the delightful Akshay Kumar can't save this one. Not rated. —LB

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

PREMONITION—A plot-driven, vaguely moralistic blend of The Sixth Sense and Memento destined for endless repeats as the FX Sunday Afternoon Movie, Premonition stars Sandra Bullock as a housewife who finds herself living the days before and after the untimely death of her husband (Nip/Tuck's Julian McMahon) out of order. The film offers a fairly brutal set of punishments for contemplating adultery, not putting up safety stickers for your kids, and worst of all, losing faith. 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

THE REAPING—Hilary Swank plays an uptight ex-missionary turned research scientist whose main goal in life is to prove that God, the Devil and modern-day miracles don't exist. Her test-tube world turns upside down when a mysterious man beckons her to solve the mystery of his backwater Louisiana town where a river has turned into a red vat of sticky blood upon the death of a child. Before this one is through, it has become the biggest Biblesploitation film to hit the big screen in years. Rated R. —KJ

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

SHAKALAKA BOOM BOOM—Rocking upstart Upen Patel goes All About Eve-y on music chart topper Bobby Deol. Set in New York but filmed in Johannesburg, Shakalaka Boom Boom looks like a mind blowing campfest starring a hero past his sell-by date and a British-Indian model keen on posing his way to the top of the Bollywood heap. Life imitates art? Not rated. —LB

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
