Patryksz scheint jeden Film auf kinox gesehen zu haben und jeden gut zu finden. Vollkommen egal, welchen Film ich öffne, er hat einen Kommentar darunter geschrieben.

Dorothy Susan Lynch has been Consider, for example, the setup. Dorothy Susan Lynch has been unwise enough to shack up with a boyfriend who is not only a junkie but also a golfer.

This makes her a two-time loser. She pawns his golf clubs. He gets revenge by throwing her brassiere in boiling water, dyeing her dog pink, and stealing her money, which is from the pawned golf clubs.

Any golfer or junkie will tell you that at this point, they are approximately morally even. Dorothy leaves the house and comes upon a disturbance in the street.

Why is he doing this? Because the movie requires this demonstration of typical male behavior. Dorothy is already mad, and now she loses it.

Imagine a scene where a man slams a woman with a pipe, and then joins her boyfriend in dragging the body into the bathtub and sharing a joint while she dies.

Di cult. Even more di cult in a comedy, which, I neglected to mention, Beautiful Creatures intends to be. Men are more violent than women, yes, and guilty of abuse, yes, although the percentage of male monsters is incalculably higher in the movies than in life.

Like Thelma and Louise, Dorothy and Petula commit crimes that are morally justi able because of their gender.

We even like them for it. My own theory is that any jury in Scotland would believe their story that the man was violent and Dorothy had come to the defense of a sister.

The movie, set in Glasgow and one of the many o spring of Trainspotting, uses local color for a lot of its gags.

Instead of picketing The Sopranos, Italian-Americans should protest the new wave of lms from Scotland, which indicate Scots make funnier, more violent, more eccentric, and more verbal gangsters than they do.

Films and TV shows that portray ethnic groups as interesting and colorful are generally a plus, since those viewers dumb enough to think every story is an accurate portrait are beyond our help anyway.

The plot. The dead man has a brother who is a rich bad guy. A detective Alex Norton comes to investigate, gets in on the scheme, and alters it with designs of his own.

Meanwhile, the junkie boyfriend turns up again, and one thing leads to another. You know how it is.

There is some dark humor in the movie, of the kind where you laugh that you may not gag. And the kind of convoluted plotting that seems obligatory in crime lms from Scotland consider Shallow Grave.

In fact, if the movie had been able to make me laugh, I might have forgiven it almost anything. He revived his career by dancing with Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction In Be Cool, Uma Thurman asks if he dances.

The hard part is, what do we do with it? Be Cool is a movie that knows it is a movie. It knows it is a sequel and contains disparaging references to sequels.

All very cute at the screenplay stage, where everybody can sit around at story conferences and assume that a scene will work because the scene it refers to worked.

So we remember Fever and then we forget it, because the new scene is working on its own. Now look at the dance scene in Be Cool.

Travolta and Thurman dance in a perfectly competent way that is neither good nor bad. Emotionally they are neither happy nor sad. The scene is not necessary to the story.

The lmmakers have put them on the dance oor without a safety net. The whole movie has the same problem. It is a sequel to Get Shorty , which was based on a novel by Elmore Leonard just as this is based on a sequel to that novel.

Funnier if he had advanced to the front ranks of movie producers and was making a movie with A-list stars when his past catches up with him.

Instead, he tries to take over the contract of a singer named Linda Moon Christina Milian , whose agent Vince Vaughn acts as if he is black.

But where do you go with it? Maybe by sinking him so deeply into dialect that he cannot make himself understood, and has to write notes.

I pause here long enough to note that Elliot Wilhelm is the name of a friend of mine who runs the Detroit Film Theater, and that Elmore Leonard undoubtedly knows this because he also lives in Detroit.

He makes dire threats against Chili Palmer, who disarms him with attery, telling him in the middle of a confrontation that he has all the right elements to be a movie star.

There are other casting decisions that are intended to be hilarious. Sin LaSalle has a chief of sta played by Andre , who is a famous music type, although I did not know that and neither, in my opinion, would Chili.

There is also a gag involving Steven Tyler turning up as himself. Be Cool becomes a classic species of bore: a self-referential movie with no self to refer to.

One character after another, one scene after another, one cute line of dialogue after another, refers to another movie, a similar character, a contrasting image or whatever.

The movie is like a bureaucrat who keeps sending you to another office. To have The Rock play a gay narcissist is not funny because all we can think about is that The Rock is not a gay narcissist.

Think what The Rock could do with a Harvey Keitel character. In other words: 1 Come up with an actual story, and 2 if you must have satire and self-reference, rotate it 90 degrees o the horizontal instead of making it ground level.

Also 3 go easy on the material that requires a familiarity with the earlier movie, as in the scenes with Danny DeVito, who can be the funniest man in a movie, but not when it has to be a movie other than the one he is appearing in.

I wonder if it played as a comedy. This is not the story of a fugitive trying to sneak through enemy terrain and be rescued but of a movie character magically transported from one photo opportunity to another.

The pilots eject. Stackhouse is found by Tracker Vladimir Mashkov , who tells his commander, Lokar Olek Krupa , to forget about a big pursuit and simply allow him to track Burnett.

Admiral Piquet, who sounds French, is played by a Portuguese actor. What Burnett does do is stroll through Bosnia like a bird-watcher, exposing himself in open areas and making himself a silhouette against the skyline.

First rule of not getting caught: No loud involuntary yells within the hearing of the enemy. This guy is a piece of work. Consider the scene where Burnett substitutes uniforms with a Serbian ghter.

He even wears a black ski mask covering his entire face. He walks past a truck of enemy troops, and then what does he do?

How did this guy get through combat training? Must have been a social promotion to keep him with his age group.

At times Burnett is pursued by the entire Serbian army, which res at him with machine guns, ri es, and tanks, of course never hitting him.

I smiled during the scene where Admiral Reigart is able to use heat-sensitive satellite imagery to look at high-res silhouettes of Burnett stretched out within feet of the enemy.

Maybe this is possible. What I do not believe is that the enemies in this scene could not spot the American uniform in a pile of enemy corpses.

Do I need to tell you that the ending involves a montage of rueful grins, broad smiles, and meaningful little victorious nods, scored with upbeat rock music?

No, probably not. The second lm was directed by Guillermo del Toro, a gifted horror director with a sure feel for quease inducing, and was even better, I thought, than the rst.

Now comes Blade: Trinity, which is a mess. It lacks the sharp narrative line and crisp comic-book clarity of the earlier lms, and descends too easily into shapeless ght scenes that are chopped into so many cuts that they lack all form or rhythm.

The setup is a continuation of the earlier lms. Vampires are waging a war to infect humanity, and the most potent ghter against them is the half-human, half-vampire Blade Wesley Snipes.

He has been raised from childhood by Whistler Kris Kristo erson , who recognized his unique ability to move between two worlds, and is a fearsome warrior, but, despite some teammates, is seriously outnumbered.

Agents surround Blade headquarters, which is your basic action movie space combining the ambience of a warehouse with lots of catwalks and high places to fall from and stu that blows up good.

Dracula is some kinduva guy. His mouth and lower face unfold into a series of ever more horrifying fangs and suchlike, until he looks like a mug shot of the original Alien.

Parker Posey is an actress I have always had a ection for, and now it is mixed with increased admiration for the way she soldiers through an impossible role, sneering like the good sport she is.

Jessica Biel becomes the rst heroine of a vampire movie to listen to her iPod during slayings.

Vampires in this movie look about as easy to kill as the ghouls in Dawn of the Dead. They have a way of suddenly zzing up into electric sparks, and then collapsing in a pile of ash.

The vampire killers and their fellow Night Stalkers engage in an increasingly murky series of battles with the vampires, leading you to ask this simple strategic question: Why, since the whole world is theirs for the taking, do the vampires have to turn up and ght the Night Stalkers in the rst place?

Why not just gure out that since the Stalkers are in Vancouver, the vampires should concentrate on, say, Montreal? Not that the lm is outrageous.

That would be asking too much. It is dimwitted, unfunny, too shallow to be o ensive, and way too conventional to use all of those people standing around in the background wearing leather and chains and waiting hopefully for their cues.

This is a movie made for nobody, about nothing. The premise: Jerry Cuba Gooding Jr. Nick has heard that the ships are jammed with lonely women.

But they o end a travel agent, who books them on a cruise of gay men, ho ho. Well, it could be funny.

Di erent characters in a di erent story with more wit and insight might have done the trick. Uh, huh. So it does, but then again, so does the annual gay parade, and so do many gay nightclubs, where role-playing is part of the scene.

Some of the scenes play as if they are intended to be realistic. Then Jerry or Nick goes into hysterics of overacting. Then Jerry attempts to signal a helicopter to rescue him, and shoots it down with a are gun.

Or maybe you will not. Screwing metal plates to the soles of their work boots, they stomp in unison on at steel surfaces while banging on things.

Imagine Fred Astaire as a punchpress operator. The movie has been adapted by director Dein Perry from his own performance piece, which he might have been better advised to make into a concert lm.

It takes place in Australia, where Sean Adam Garcia dreams of becoming a dancer. His salt-of-the earth father, a steelworker, opposes the plan.

Sean cannot face life without dance in Newcastle, a steel town, despite the charms of the without dance in Newcastle, a steel town, despite the charms of the fragrant Linda Sophie Lee , a hairdresser who has given him to understand that he might someday, but not yet, enjoy her favors.

In Sydney, Sean encounters a hard-nosed choreographer William Zappa , a staple of dance movies, who is not easy to impress. I am not suggesting that all, or most, or many dancers are gay, but surely one has heard that some are?

Sean arrives in the morning, discovers that Mitchell and Linda have sailed into waters that Linda had assured him would remain uncharted pending their own maiden voyage, and becomes so depressed that we realize we have reached the Preliminary Crisis as defined in elementary screenwriting outlines.

Now what? It remains only for the steel mills to close so that Sean can realize that the millworkers should be retrained as computer experts.

But there are no computers. Why not have a bene t? Is there a scene near the end of the performance where the oncebitter dad enters, sees that his son is indeed talented, and forgives all?

Is Linda pardoned for her lapse of faithfulness? Do Mitchell and Sean realize that even though Mitchell may have slept with the woman Sean loves it was because Mitchell had too much to drink, something that could happen in any family?

Do the townspeople of Newcastle give a lusty ovation to the performance? Is there an encore? Veteran moviegoers will walk into the theater already possessing the answers to these and many other questions.

The Alma Mahler depicted in is a woman who prowls restlessly through the beds of the famous, making them miserable while displaying no charm of her own.

Whether this was the case with the real woman I do not know. The movie has three tones: overwrought, boring, laughable. Sarah Wynter, who plays Alma, does not perform the dialogue but recites it.

We rst meet her going to a ball her father has forbidden her to We rst meet her going to a ball her father has forbidden her to attend.

He is stern with her when she returns. So much for her adolescence. She has a airs throughout their marriage. Mahler is always going on about his music, you see, and thinks himself a genius.

Well, so does Gropius. The screenplay shows the egos of the men by putting big, clanging chunks of information in the dialogue.

Another a air is with the sculptor and painter Oskar Kokoschka Vincent Perez , who goes o to ght the war and is shot through the head and bayoneted after falling wounded.

In what the movie presents as a dying vision, he imagines Alma walking toward him. Since his head is at on the ground, she walks toward him sideways, rotated ninety degrees from upright.

She becomes involved with the writer Werfel. Then he sees she is pregnant and rejoices that she decided to have his baby after all, instead of an abortion.

A year. Ben A eck makes the same mistake in Pearl Harbor. At a loss to explain this lapse, I can only observe that another of his lmed biographies, King David , was also very bad.

Maybe there is something about a real-life subject that paralyzes him. Something must have been going wrong on this production.

Filmmakers need a sixth sense for lines that might play the wrong way. For example: After Alma has slept with as many Viennese artists as she can manage without actually double booking, she quarrels with the latest.

Are you going to send him away? At the end of the movie there are titles telling us what happened to everyone; Gropius moved to America and went on to become a famous architect, etc.

We are not surprised to learn that little Maria went on to be married five times. It assembles the standard package of horror heroes and heroines sexy girl, nice girl, stalwart guy, uncertain guy, drunk guy and takes them o for a post-exam holiday in the woods where things get o to a bad start when a man covered with blood comes staggering out of the trees.

The lm could develop its plague story in a serious way, like a George Romero picture or 28 Days Later, but it keeps breaking the mood with weird humor involving the locals.

The drama mostly involves the characters locking the door against dogs, the locals, and each other; running into the woods in search of escape or help; trying to start the truck which, like all vehicles in horror lms, runs only when the plot requires it to and having sex, lots of sex.

The nature of the disease is inexplicable; it seems to involve enormous quantities of blood appearing on the surface of the skin without visible wounds, and then spreading in wholesale amounts to every nearby surface.

If some of this material had been harnessed and channeled into a disciplined screenplay with a goal in mind, the movie might have worked.

But the director and coauthor, Eli Roth, is too clever for his own good, and impatiently switches between genres, tones, and intentions.

The movie adds up to a few good ideas and a lot of bad ones, wandering around in search of an organizing principle. It gets those right.

Everything else is secondary, except for the plot, which is tertiary. What a letdown. The lmmakers have given great thought to photographing Berry, who looks fabulous, and little thought to providing her with a strong character, story, supporting characters, or action sequences.

In a summer when Spider-Man 2 represents the state of the art, Catwoman is tired and dated. The strength of Spider-Man 2 is in the ambivalence that Peter Parker has about being part nerdy student, part superhero.

In Catwoman, where are the scenes where a woman comes to grips with the fact that her entire nature and even her species seems to have changed?

Berry plays Patience Philips, a designer for an ad agency, who dies and is reborn after Midnight, a cat with ties to ancient Egypt, breathes new life into her.

She becomes Catwoman, but what is a catwoman? She can leap like a cat, strut around on top of her furniture, survive great falls, and hiss.

Halle Berry looks great doing these things and spends a lot of time on all fours, inspiring our almost unseemly gratitude for her cleavage.

She gobbles down tuna and sushi. Her eyes have vertical pupils instead of horizontal ones. She sleeps on a shelf. What does she think about all of this?

How does it a ect her relationship with that cute cop, Tom Lone Benjamin Bratt? From what we know about Catwoman, her style in bed has probably changed along with everything else, and sure enough the next day he notices a claw mark on his shoulder.

Catwoman dresses like a dominatrix, with the high heels and the leather skirt, brassiere, mask, and whip. But why?

Because the costume sketches looked great, is my opinion. When Patience stumbles over this look like burn victims. When Patience stumbles over this unfortunate side e ect, she is attacked by security guards, ushed out of a waste pipe, and is dead when Midnight finds her.

Soon she has a dual identity: Patience by day, Catwoman by night. She already knows Tom Lone. They met when she crawled out of her window and balanced on an air conditioner to rescue Midnight, and Tom thought she was committing suicide and saved her after she slipped.

That meeting begins a romance between Patience and Tom that is remarkable for its complete lack of energy, passion, and chemistry.

If the movie had been ten minutes longer it would have needed a scene where they sigh and sadly agree their relationship is just not working out.

One of those things. Not meant to be. He runs the cosmetics company and res his wife as its model when she turns forty. She is not to be tri ed with, especially not in a movie where the big ght scene is a real cat ght, so to speak, between the two women.

The score by Klaus Badelt is particularly annoying; it faithfully mirrors every action with what occasionally sounds like a karaoke rhythm section.

The director, whose name is Pitof, was probably issued with two names at birth and would be wise to use the other one on his next project.

Cecil B. To be sure, he has real stars in the picture; Melanie Gri th stars as a Hollywood star, and Stephen Dor plays the cult leader who kidnaps her as part of his guerrilla assault on mainstream cinema.

The movie has a radical premise, as Weathermen-type movie lovers try to destroy dumb commercial lms, but it is pitched at the level of a very bad sketch on Saturday Night Live.

Cinema guerrilla Cecil B. Demented Dor and his cult group kidnap Gri th, who will be forced to star in their own lm.

And Gri th, as a spoiled star named Honey Whitlock, gets into the spirit. Now he seems to have returned to his middle period again, if such a thing is possible.

Sometimes, in this lm, that geniality works against him; the actors are having a better time than we are. How entertaining is that really supposed to be?

Waters has always embraced a tacky design look in his lms, and here a lot of the sets seem decorated by stu everybody brought from home.

Old movie posters are plastered on the walls, the cult hangs around in what looks like a rec room, and there are movie in-jokes everywhere.

Cult members have the names of their favorite directors tattooed on their arms. The ending of Cecil B. He is an anarchist in an age of the cautious, an independent in an age of studio creatures, a man whose lms are homemade and contain no chemicals or whose lms are homemade and contain no chemicals or preservatives.

Even with Cecil B. You wait and see. This movie is a dead zone in their lives, and mine. What is it? A satire?

Of what? Of satires, I guess. It makes fun of movies that want to make fun of movies like this.

Why, I am asking, is this funny? I am thinking hard. So much money and e ort was spent on these explosions that somebody must have been convinced they had a purpose, but I, try as I might, cannot see them as anything other than action without mind, purpose, humor, excitement, or entertainment.

I never watched the show, and the plot was familiar even to me. A disembodied voice John Forsythe issues commands to the three babes who work for his detective agency, and they perform his missions while wearing clothes possibly found at the thrift shop across the street from Coyote Ugly.

Barrymore, Diaz, and Liu represent redhead, blonde, and brunette respectively or, as my colleague David Poland has pointed out, T, respectively or, as my colleague David Poland has pointed out, T, A, and Hair.

And voluntarily, too. At the tops of their careers, they chose to make this movie Barrymore even produced it. They volunteered for what lesser talents are reduced to doing.

The cast also contains Bill Murray, who likes to appear unbilled in a lot of his movies and picked the wrong one to shelve that policy. He is winsome, cherubic, and loopy, as usual, but the movie gives him nothing to push against.

In the months to come there will be several movies based on popular video games, including one about Tomb Raiders and its digital babe, Lara Croft.

And what is it nally so happy about? They form a herd mentality, without the mentality. The movie is not funny, ever, in any way, beginning to end.

Sounds reasonable to me. The answer is, they decorate. Their street coordinates a Christmas display every year in which neighbors compete to hang the most lights from their eaves and clutter the lawn with secular symbolism.

Everyone has Frosty on their rooftop. When the word gets around that the Kranks are taking a year o , the neighborhood posse gets alarmed.

Their leader is Vic Frohmeyer Dan Aykroyd , who leads a delegation to berate them. But no. So the Kranks of course must have their traditional Christmas Eve party after all, and the third act consists of all the neighbors pitching in to decorate the house, prepare the food and decorations, etc.

What it a rms is not the Christmas spirit but the Kranks caving in. What is the movie really about? What used to be known as American individualism is now interpreted as ominous.

The buried message is: Go along, and follow the lead of the most obnoxious loudmouth on the block. Christmas, some of my older readers may recall, was once a religious holiday.

Not in this movie. Not a single cruci x, not a single creche, not a single mention of the J-name. The beauty of this approach is that Santa is a nonsectarian saint, a supernatural being who exists free of theology.

Frosty, on the other hand, is apparently only a snowman. Of course, that was a more innocent time, when movies slowly crept around the country and there was time to get advance warning of a turkey.

Fast-food restaurants now have tie-ins with everyone from Shrek to Spider-Man; when I was a kid we were lucky to get ketchup with the fries.

Enormous pressure is put on the target audience to turn out on opening weekends. In other words, you. So I am writing you in the hope of saving your friends, your sister, Jasmine, and your mother, Toni, from going to see a truly dismal new movie.

Sam also naturally has two evil stepsisters. She agrees to meet him at the big Halloween dance, wearing a mask to preserve her anonymity; as a disguise, the mask makes her look uncannily like Hilary Duff wearing a mask.

Anyway, this is a lame, stupid movie, but Warner Bros. So you must be strong and wise, and do your research. Even though your mother no longer watches my TV show, you use the Internet as a resource and no doubt know about movie review sources like rottentomatoes.

So I o er the following advice. Urgently counsel your mom and sister to forget about going out to the movies this week, and instead mark the calendar for August 24, when Ella Enchanted will be released on video.

This is a movie that came out in April and sank without a trace, despite the fact that it was magical, funny, intelligent, romantic, and charming.

Fox puts a spell on her that makes her life extremely complicated. She has the usual evil stepmother and two jealous stepsisters.

Will she win the love of Prince Charmont Hugh Dancy? A Cinderella Story is a terrible movie, sappy and dead in the water, but Ella Enchanted is a wonderful movie, and if Jasmine and your mom insist on Cinderella you can casually point out what Ella is short for.

As for that guy Ernest Madison, he was about eleven when Dragon-slayer came out. If he still feels the same way, I hope he goes to see A Cinderella Story.

Think of the trouble it would be for one man, working alone, to kill a horse and dump it into a swimming pool. This house is going to need a lot of work.

In Under the Tuscan Sun, another new movie, Diane Lane is able to nd some cheerful Polish workers to rehab her Tuscan villa, but the Tilsons have the extraordinarily bad judgment to hire the former owner of the house, Dale Massie Stephen Dor , an ex-con with a missing family.

No, but everybody in the audience does. The movie, of course, issues two small children to the Tilsons, so that their little screams can pipe up on cue, as when the beloved horse is found in the pool.

And both Cooper and Leah are tinged with the suggestion of adultery, because in American movies, as we all know, sexual misconduct leads to bad real estate choices.

In all movies involving city people who move to the country, there is an unwritten rule that everybody down at the diner knows all about the history of the new property and the secrets of its former owners.

No one in this movie has a shred of common sense. The Tilsons are always leaving doors open even though they know terrible dangers lurk outside, and they are agonizingly slow to realize that Dale Massie is not only the wrong person to rehab their house, but the wrong person to be in the same state with.

Various clues, accompanied by portentous music, ominous winds, gathering clouds, etc. But answer me this: If you were a vicious mad-dog killer and wanted to get rid of the Tilsons and had just pushed Leah down the well, and Cooper was all alone in the woods leaning over the well and trying to pull his wife back to the surface, would you just go ahead and push him in?

Or what? The audience has to undergo an extended scene in which Cooper is not pushed down the well, in order for everyone to hurry back to the house, climb up to the roof, fall o , etc.

But he has made a thriller that thrills us only if we abandon all common sense. Of course, preposterous things happen in all thrillers, but there must be at least a gesture in the direction of plausibility, or we lose patience.

If it could, it would laugh for us. In addition to the cast members listed above, the movie stars Douglas McGrath, its author and codirector, who is a low-rent cross between Jack Lemmon and Wally Cox and comes across without any apparent comic e ect.

He plays Allen Quimp, rhymes with wimp, a grammar teacher from Connecticut whose wife Weaver frets that he needs a better job.

Example: As Fry denies that a revolutionary fever is sweeping the island, a man with a bottle full of gasoline approaches them and borrows a light from Quimp.

And not any burning auto, but an ancient, rusty, abandoned hulk lled with phony gas ames obviously rigged and turned on for the movie.

How does it help the revolution to restage ancient auto fires? But never mind. Now Allen is returning the favor, I guess.

Well, that was a funny movie, and the same search identi es McGrath as the writer-director of Emma , a nice little comedy with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Maybe the mistake was to star himself. As bad movies go, Company Man falls less in the category of A ront to the Audience and more in the category of Nonevent.

It was screened twice for the Chicago press, and I sat through the rst thirty minutes of the second screening, thinking to check it against a di erent crowd.

I heard no laughter. Just an occasional cough, or the shu ing of feet, or a yawn, or a sigh, like in a waiting room.

The plot is creaky, the jokes are laborious, and total implausibility is not considered the slightest problem.

But they still dream the dream, and then, in a direct lift from Some Like It Hot, they witness a mob murder and have to go on the lam.

Stay hidden? Nope, they both stand up, scream, and wave their hands. Connie and Carla hit the road, head for Los Angeles, happen into a drag bar, and inspiration strikes: They can pretend to be female impersonators!

That way no one will nd them, or even know where to look. One of the running gags in Some Like It Hot was that Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis did not make very plausible women, but the movie handled that by surrounding them with dim bulbs like the characters played by Marilyn Monroe and Joe E.

Their danger from the mob is put on hold as the movie switches to another reliable formula, the showbiz rags-to-riches epic. The time scheme of the movie is su ciently forgiving for them to suggest that their little club remodel itself and double in size; and there is actually a scene where the show goes on while plastic sheeting separates te old club from the new addition.

Next scene, the construction work is nished. Forget the drag queens, get the names of those contractors. The movie masks desperation with frenzied slapstick and forced laughs.

And when Connie meets a straight guy she likes David Duchovny , we groan as the plot manufactures Meet Cutes by having them repeatedly run into each other and knock each other down.

Brown fell in love with Jack Lemmon, not Marilyn Monroe. My Big Fat Greek Wedding was such a huge success that it gave Vardalos a free ticket for her next movie.

Nor does director Michael Lembeck save the day. There was a nice documentary about emperor penguins, however, at Sundance this year.

The males sit on the eggs all winter long in, like, sixty degrees below zero. Keanu Reeves plays Constantine as a chain-smoking, depressed demon hunter who lives above a bowling alley in Los Angeles.

Since he was a child, he has been able to see that not all who walk among us are human. Some are penguins. Sorry about that.

Some are half-angels and half-devils. Constantine knows he is doomed to hell because he once tried to kill himself, and is trying to rack up enough frames against the demons to earn his way into heaven.

There is a scene early in the movie where Constantine and his doctor look at his X-rays, never a good sign in a superhero movie.

He has lung cancer. Constantine has already spent some time in hell, which looks like a post-nuclear Los Angeles created by animators with a hangover.

No doubt it is filled with carcinogens. The half-angels and half-devils are earthly proxies in the war between God and Satan.

You would think that God would be the New England Patriots of this contest, but apparently there is a chance that Satan could win.

Like Blade, the vampire killer, he is surprisingly optimistic, considering he is one guy in one city dealing on a case-by-case basis, and the enemy is global.

Constantine has a technical adviser named Beeman Max Baker , who lives in the ceiling of the bowling alley among the pin-spotting machines, and functions like Q in the James Bond movies.

Rachel Weisz plays Angela Dodson, an L. Isabel reported seeing demons, so Angela consults Constantine, who nods wisely and wonders if Isabel jumped, or was metaphysically pushed.

Later in the lm, to show Angela that she also has the gift of seeing the world behind the world, Constantine holds her underwater in a bathtub until she passes out and sees the torments of hell.

No bright white corridors and old friends and Yanni for her. You wonder what kind of an L. Together, they prowl the nighttime streets.

At one point, Constantine needs to consult Midnite Djimon Hounsou , a former witch doctor who runs a private nightclub where half-angels and half-demons can get half-loaded and talk shop.

Killer's Bodyguard Klicke hier um diese Seite anzupassen. Michael Bryce Ryan Reynolds ist der weltbeste Sicherheitsagent und Personenschützer und wird als solcher ausgerechnet dafür engagiert, den berühmt-berüchtigten Auftragskiller Darius Kincaid Samuel L.

Jackson zu beschützen. Bryce und Kincaid waren zwar jahrelang Feinde und haben unzählige Male versucht, sich gegenseitig zu töten, aber jetzt müssen sie wohl oder übel zusammenarbeiten, um innerhalb von 24 Stunden zu der Gerichtsverhandlung zu kommen.

Der Beginn eines haarsträubenden Abenteuers Jetzt herunterladen! Should it be the James Gang? The James-Younger Gang? The Younger-James Gang?

After getting his revenge and knocking over countless banks, what he basically wants to do is retire from the gang and get himself a farm and settle down with pretty Zee Mimms Ali Larter.

While we are musing about how many nighttime robberies there had been in American history, we meet the villains.

Dozens of extras are killed and countless stuntmen topple forward off buildings, but the stars are treated with the greatest economy, their deaths doled out parsimoniously according to the needs of the formula screenplay.

The style, class, and intelligence of a Western like that in an era which also gave us The Wild Bunch is like a rebuke to American Outlaws.

What happened to the rough-hewn American intelligence that gave us the Westerns of Ford, Hawks, and Peckinpah? When did cowboys become teen pop idols?

She goes into the toilet and cuts her wrist. He follows her in, sees what she has done, and takes her to a drugstore, where the wound is bandaged.

He asks her why she did it. Sometimes she is wise about it, as in 36 Fillette , the story of a troubled teenager who begins a series of risky irtations with older men.

Or in Fat Girl , about the seething resentment of a pudgy twelve-year-old toward her sexpot older sister. But sometimes she is just plain goofy, as in Anatomy of Hell, which plays like porn dubbed by bitter deconstructionist theoreticians.

The Woman makes an o er to The Man. She will pay him good money to watch her, simply watch her, for four nights. He keeps his end of the bargain, but there were times when I would have paid good money to not watch them, simply not watch them.

I remember when hardcore rst became commonplace, and there were discussions about what it would be like if a serious director ever made a porn movie.

The answer, judging by Anatomy of Hell, ever made a porn movie. The answer, judging by Anatomy of Hell, is that the audience would decide they did not require such a serious director after all.

The Woman believes men hate women, and that gay men hate them even more than straight men, who, however, hate them quite enough.

Men fear women, fear their menstrual secrets, fear their gynecological mysteries, fear that during sex they might disappear entirely within the woman and be imprisoned again by the womb.

To demonstrate her beliefs, The Woman disrobes completely and displays herself on a bed, while The Man sits in a chair and watches her, occasionally rousing himself for a shot of Jack on the rocks.

They talk. They speak as only the French can speak, as if it is not enough for a concept to be di cult, it must be impenetrable.

Some events in this movie cannot be hinted at in a family newspaper. Objects emerge to the light of day that would distinguish target practice in a Bangkok sex show.

The poor guy is just as much a prop here as men usually are in porn lms. He is played by Rocco Si redi, an Italian porn star.

The Woman is played by Amira Casar, who is completely nude most of the time, although the opening titles inform us that a body double will be playing her close-ups in the more action-packed scenes.

No doubt the truth can be unpleasant, but I am not sure that unpleasantness is the same as the truth. There are scenes here where Breillat deliberately disgusts us, not because we are disgusted by the natural life functions of women, as she implies, but simply because The Woman does things that would make any reasonable Man, or Woman, for that matter, throw up.

This was a risky, original lm by a brilliant new director, who told the story of a group of Asian kids from a uent families in Orange County, who backed into a life of crime with their eyes wide open.

Let the young directors at Sundance set aside their glowing reviews and gaze with sad eyes upon this movie, for it is a cautionary lesson.

The movie stars James Franco as Jake Huard, a working-class kid who works as a riveter in a Chesapeake Bay shipyard and gazes in yearning across the waters to the U.

Naval Academy, which his dead mother always wanted him to attend. His father, Bill Brian Goodman , opposes the idea: He thinks his kid is too hotheaded to stick it out.

But Jake is accepted for an unlikely last-minute opening, and the movie is the story of his plebe year. That year is the present time, I guess, since Jake is referred to as a member of the class that will graduate in That means that the Navy is presumably ghting a war somewhere or other in this old world of ours, although there is not a single word about it in the movie.

The plebes seem mostly engaged in memorizing the longitude and latitude of Annapolis to avoid doing push-ups. There is much suspense over whether Twins can complete the obstacle course in less than ve minutes by the end of the year.

If I had a year to train under a brutal Marine drill sergeant with his boot up my butt, I could complete the goddamn obstacle course in under ve minutes, and so could Queen Latifah.

The drill sergeant is Lt. Cole Tyrese Gibson , who is a combatveteran Marine on loan to the academy. Where he saw combat is never mentioned, even when he returns to it at the end of the movie.

But this movie is not about war. It is about boxing. Because Jake has an attitude and because Cole doubts his ability to lead men, they become enemies, and everything points toward the big match where Jake and Cole will be able to hammer each other in the ring.

I forgot to mention that Jake was an amateur ghter before he entered the academy. His father thought he was a loser at that, too.

Surely a director who made Better Luck Tomorrow would have nothing to do with such an ancient wheeze, which is not only o the shelf, but o the shelf at the resale store?

Yes, the Navy is at war, and it all comes down to a boxing match. There is only one character in the movie who comes alive and whose dialogue is worth being heard.

That is the fat kid, Twins. His reason may not make audiences in Arkansas and Mississippi very happy, but at least it has the quality of sounding as if a human being might say it out loud.

I ask this question because I do not know the answer. It alternates between graphic, explicit sex scenes, and murder scenes of brutal cruelty.

Later, you ask what the lmmakers had in mind. They are French, and so we know some kind of ideology and rationalization must lurk beneath the blood and semen.

The lm has been written and directed by Virginie Despentes, based on her novel; she enlisted Coralie Trin Thi, a porno actress, as her codirector whether to help with the visual strategy or because of her understanding of the mechanical requirements of onscreen sex, it is hard to say.

It was written and directed by Takeshi Kitano, who starred under his acting name, Beat Takeshi. Kitano under any name is the Japanese master of lean, violent, heartless action pictures, and in this one the plot is punctuated every ve minutes or so by a bloodbath in which enemies are shot dead.

Many, many enemies. The killings are separated in Brother by about the same length of time as those in Baise-Moi, or the sex acts in a porno lm.

Obviously all three kinds of lm are providing payo s by the clock. Would Brother be as depressing as Baise-Moi if all the victims had sex before they were gunned down?

A case can be made that Baise-Moi wants to attack sexism in the movies at the same time it raises the stakes. An equally controversial new American movie named Bully is also about stupid, senseless murder, but it has the wit to know what it thinks about its characters.

Baise-Moi is more of a blu. The directors know their lm is so extreme that most will be repelled, but some will devise intellectual defenses and interpretations for it, saving them the trouble of making it clear what they want to say.

Ernest Hemingway, who was no doubt a sexist pig, said it is moral if you feel good after it, and immoral if you feel bad after it.

Manu and Nadine do not feel bad, and that is immoral. Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever that renaming it Ballistic would not have solved.

The movie is a chaotic mess, overloaded with special e ects and explosions, light on continuity, sanity, and coherence.

He has obtained a miniaturized robot so small it can float in the bloodstream and cause strokes and heart attacks.

All very well, but consider for a moment the problem of cost overruns in these times of economic uncertainty.

A miniaturized assassination robot small enough to slip through the bloodstream would cost how much? And it is delivered by dart?

When the FBI goes looking for Ecks, for example, they nd him sitting morosely on a bar stool, drinking and smoking. That is, of course, where sad former agents always are found, but the strange thing is, after years of drinking he is still in great shape, has all his karate moves, and goes directly into violent action without even a tiny tremor of DTs.

The movie ends in a stock movie location I thought had been retired: a steam and ame factory where the combatants stalk each other on catwalks and from behind steel pillars, while the otherwise deserted factory supplies vast quantities of ame and steam.

Vancouver itself, for that matter, is mostly deserted, and no wonder, if word has gotten around that two U. Sever was directed by Wych Kaosayananda of Thailand, whose pseudonym, you may not be surprised to learn, is Kaos.

As the plot unfolded, and unfolded, and unfolded, and unfolded, I leaned forward earnestly in my seat, trying to remember where we had been and what we had learned.

Reader, I gave it my best shot. But with a sinking heart I realized that my e orts were not going to be enough, because this was not a lm that could be understood.

With style and energy from the actors, with every sign of self-con dence from the director, with pictures that were in focus and dialogue that you could hear, the movie descended into a morass of narrative quicksand.

By the end, I wanted to do cruel and vicious things to the screenplay. It sets up a situation and then does a bait and switch.

You never know which walnut the truth is under. You invest your trust and are betrayed. I felt The Usual Suspects was a long ride for a short day at the beach, but at least as I traced back through it, I could see how it held together.

But as nearly as I can tell, Basic exists with no respect for objective reality. It is all smoke and no mirrors.

The lm is set in a rainy jungle in Panama. I suspect it rains so much as an irritant, to make everything harder to see and hear. Or maybe the sky gods are angry at the film.

We are introduced to the hard-assed Sgt. Nathan West Jackson , a sadistic perfectionist who is roundly hated by his unit.

When various characters are killed during the confusion of the storm, there is the feeling the deaths may not have been accidental, may indeed have involved drug dealing.

Julia Osborne Connie Nielsen. The murders and the investigation are both told in untrustworthy ashbacks.

We get versions of events from such di ering points of view, indeed, that we yearn for a good old-fashioned omnipotent POV to come in and slap everybody around.

There are so many di erent views of the same happenings that, hell, why not throw in a musical version? Of course, there are moments that are engaging in themselves.

Finally we arrive at an ending that gives a final jerk to our chain and we realize we never had a chance. What is the point of a movie like Basic?

To make us feel cleverly deceived? To do that, the lm would have to convince us of one reality and then give us another, equally valid classics like Laura did that.

This movie gives no indication even at the end that we have nally gotten to the bottom of things. There is a feeling that Basic II could carry right on, undoing the nal shots, bringing a few characters back to life and sending the whole crowd o on another tango of gratuitous deception.

The visuals are grubby and drab. The characters are unkempt and have rotten teeth. Breathing tubes hang from their noses like ropes of snot.

The sound track sounds like the boom mike is being slammed against the inside of a fifty-five-gallon drum.

This movie is awful in so many But let me catch my breath. This movie is awful in so many di erent ways. Even the opening titles are cheesy.

Sci- epics usually begin with a stab at impressive titles, but this one just displays green letters on the screen in a type font that came with my Macintosh.

It is the year The race of Psychlos have conquered Earth. Humans survive in scattered bands, living like actors auditioning for the sequel to Quest for Fire.

Soon a few leave the wilderness and prowl through the ruins of theme parks and the city of Denver. The ruins have held up well after one thousand years.

The books in the library are dusty but readable, and a ight simulator still works, although where it gets the electricity is a mystery.

The hero, named Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, is played by Barry Pepper as a smart human who gets smarter thanks to a Psychlo gizmo that zaps his eyeballs with knowledge.

He learns Euclidean geometry and how to y a jet, and otherwise proves to be a quick learner for a caveman. Terl is head of security for the Psychlos, and has a secret scheme to use the humans as slaves to mine gold for him.

Jonnie Goodboy gures out a way to avoid slave labor in the gold mines. He and his men simply go to Fort Knox, break in, and steal it. What Terl says when his slaves hand him smelted bars of gold is beyond explanation.

We can sit back and watch it choose its food. An experiment like that, you pray for a chicken. Their costumes look purchased from the Goodwill store on Tatoine.

Travolta can be charming, funny, touching, and brave in his best roles; why disguise him as a smelly alien creep?

The Psychlos can y between galaxies, but look at their nails: Their civilization has mastered the hyperdrive but not the manicure.

Lots of great movies have squalid heroes. But when the characters seem noxious on principle, we wonder if the art and costume departments were allowed to run wild.

Battle eld Earth was written in by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. The lm contains no evidence of Scientology or any other system of thought; it is shapeless and senseless, without a compelling plot or characters we care for in the slightest.

The director, Roger Christian, has learned from better lms that directors sometimes tilt their cameras, but he has not learned why.

Some movies run o the rails. This one is like the train crash in The Fugitive. I watched it in mounting gloom, realizing I was witnessing something historic, a lm that for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad movies.

If the lm had been destroyed in a similar cataclysm, there might have been a standing ovation. The movie tells the story of Mona, a girl who dreams of becoming a beauty queen and grows up to become obsessed with her dream.

Her life is not without di culties. As a child from Naperville, Illinois, she is graceless, wears braces, chooses costumes Miss Clarabell would not be seen in, cheats, and is insu erably selfcentered.

As an adult, played by Minnie Driver, she gets rid of the braces but keeps right on cheating, until by the time she becomes Miss Illinois she has survived her third scandal.

Sample scandal. A competitor in a pageant plans to twirl a re baton. As a girl, Mona is best pals with Ruby, a girl who for no good reason adores her.

Why does Ruby devote her entire life to Mona and become a surrogate mother? Search me. Because the plot makes her, I guess. Mona has parents of her own, a mother and a stepfather who are sullen, unhelpful, drink too much, and spend most of their time being seen in unhelpful reaction shots.

The screenplay is no help in explaining their personalities or histories. She suspects Mona is her real mom and seems fed up being used as a pawn at one point she gets on the phone to order some foster parents.

She knows Mona has a child and is planning to break the story, but no one who has watched television for as long as a day could conceivably believe her character or what she does.

She is obviously not on the same channel as the pageant, so she must be on another channel. Joyce, I guess, since she addresses them in real time whenever she feels like it.

The staging is so inept she is actually seen eavesdropping on the pageant by placing her ear near to a wall. No press gallery?

Not even a portable TV for her to watch? As for Mona herself, Minnie Driver nds herself in an acting triathlon.

Mona changes personalities, strategies, and IQ levels from scene to scene. I was amazed at one point when people told Mona what the matter with her was, and then she went home and lay down on the sofa and we got ashback voice-overs as memories of the accusing voices echoed in her head.

That device was dated in Driver would have been miscast even if the screenplay had been competent.

And what about Ruby, the nurse played by Adams? The lmmakers have no sense of proportion; Ruby could just as easily have been stuck in a gas station with a at tire and provided the same reaction shots watching TV in the climax.

Why kill the sweet old lady? Now consider. Mona has been involved in three scandals. She scarred one of her competitors for life.

Her roommate and manager is in jail charged as an Angel of Death. A TV newswoman knows she has a secret child.

What are the odds any beauty pageant would let that contestant on stage? The executives who green-lighted it did her no favors. Here is a movie about two of the most loathsome women in recent cinema, and the movie thinks the male characters are the villains.

It gets away with this only because we have been taught that women are to be presumed good and men are to be presumed evil. Flip the genders in this screenplay, and there would not be the slightest doubt that the characters named Petula and Dorothy are monsters.

Consider, for example, the setup. Dorothy Susan Lynch has been Consider, for example, the setup. Dorothy Susan Lynch has been unwise enough to shack up with a boyfriend who is not only a junkie but also a golfer.

This makes her a two-time loser. She pawns his golf clubs. He gets revenge by throwing her brassiere in boiling water, dyeing her dog pink, and stealing her money, which is from the pawned golf clubs.

Any golfer or junkie will tell you that at this point, they are approximately morally even. Dorothy leaves the house and comes upon a disturbance in the street.

Why is he doing this? Because the movie requires this demonstration of typical male behavior. Dorothy is already mad, and now she loses it.

Imagine a scene where a man slams a woman with a pipe, and then joins her boyfriend in dragging the body into the bathtub and sharing a joint while she dies.

Di cult. Even more di cult in a comedy, which, I neglected to mention, Beautiful Creatures intends to be.

Men are more violent than women, yes, and guilty of abuse, yes, although the percentage of male monsters is incalculably higher in the movies than in life.

Like Thelma and Louise, Dorothy and Petula commit crimes that are morally justi able because of their gender.

We even like them for it. My own theory is that any jury in Scotland would believe their story that the man was violent and Dorothy had come to the defense of a sister.

The movie, set in Glasgow and one of the many o spring of Trainspotting, uses local color for a lot of its gags. Instead of picketing The Sopranos, Italian-Americans should protest the new wave of lms from Scotland, which indicate Scots make funnier, more violent, more eccentric, and more verbal gangsters than they do.

Films and TV shows that portray ethnic groups as interesting and colorful are generally a plus, since those viewers dumb enough to think every story is an accurate portrait are beyond our help anyway.

The plot. The dead man has a brother who is a rich bad guy. A detective Alex Norton comes to investigate, gets in on the scheme, and alters it with designs of his own.

Meanwhile, the junkie boyfriend turns up again, and one thing leads to another. You know how it is. There is some dark humor in the movie, of the kind where you laugh that you may not gag.

And the kind of convoluted plotting that seems obligatory in crime lms from Scotland consider Shallow Grave.

In fact, if the movie had been able to make me laugh, I might have forgiven it almost anything. He revived his career by dancing with Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction In Be Cool, Uma Thurman asks if he dances.

The hard part is, what do we do with it? Be Cool is a movie that knows it is a movie. It knows it is a sequel and contains disparaging references to sequels.

All very cute at the screenplay stage, where everybody can sit around at story conferences and assume that a scene will work because the scene it refers to worked.

So we remember Fever and then we forget it, because the new scene is working on its own. Now look at the dance scene in Be Cool.

Travolta and Thurman dance in a perfectly competent way that is neither good nor bad. Emotionally they are neither happy nor sad.

The scene is not necessary to the story. The lmmakers have put them on the dance oor without a safety net. The whole movie has the same problem.

It is a sequel to Get Shorty , which was based on a novel by Elmore Leonard just as this is based on a sequel to that novel.

Funnier if he had advanced to the front ranks of movie producers and was making a movie with A-list stars when his past catches up with him.

Instead, he tries to take over the contract of a singer named Linda Moon Christina Milian , whose agent Vince Vaughn acts as if he is black.

But where do you go with it? Maybe by sinking him so deeply into dialect that he cannot make himself understood, and has to write notes.

I pause here long enough to note that Elliot Wilhelm is the name of a friend of mine who runs the Detroit Film Theater, and that Elmore Leonard undoubtedly knows this because he also lives in Detroit.

He makes dire threats against Chili Palmer, who disarms him with attery, telling him in the middle of a confrontation that he has all the right elements to be a movie star.

There are other casting decisions that are intended to be hilarious. Sin LaSalle has a chief of sta played by Andre , who is a famous music type, although I did not know that and neither, in my opinion, would Chili.

There is also a gag involving Steven Tyler turning up as himself. Be Cool becomes a classic species of bore: a self-referential movie with no self to refer to.

One character after another, one scene after another, one cute line of dialogue after another, refers to another movie, a similar character, a contrasting image or whatever.

The movie is like a bureaucrat who keeps sending you to another office. To have The Rock play a gay narcissist is not funny because all we can think about is that The Rock is not a gay narcissist.

Think what The Rock could do with a Harvey Keitel character. In other words: 1 Come up with an actual story, and 2 if you must have satire and self-reference, rotate it 90 degrees o the horizontal instead of making it ground level.

Also 3 go easy on the material that requires a familiarity with the earlier movie, as in the scenes with Danny DeVito, who can be the funniest man in a movie, but not when it has to be a movie other than the one he is appearing in.

I wonder if it played as a comedy. This is not the story of a fugitive trying to sneak through enemy terrain and be rescued but of a movie character magically transported from one photo opportunity to another.

The pilots eject. Stackhouse is found by Tracker Vladimir Mashkov , who tells his commander, Lokar Olek Krupa , to forget about a big pursuit and simply allow him to track Burnett.

Admiral Piquet, who sounds French, is played by a Portuguese actor. What Burnett does do is stroll through Bosnia like a bird-watcher, exposing himself in open areas and making himself a silhouette against the skyline.

First rule of not getting caught: No loud involuntary yells within the hearing of the enemy. This guy is a piece of work.

Consider the scene where Burnett substitutes uniforms with a Serbian ghter. He even wears a black ski mask covering his entire face.

He walks past a truck of enemy troops, and then what does he do? How did this guy get through combat training?

Must have been a social promotion to keep him with his age group. At times Burnett is pursued by the entire Serbian army, which res at him with machine guns, ri es, and tanks, of course never hitting him.

I smiled during the scene where Admiral Reigart is able to use heat-sensitive satellite imagery to look at high-res silhouettes of Burnett stretched out within feet of the enemy.

Maybe this is possible. What I do not believe is that the enemies in this scene could not spot the American uniform in a pile of enemy corpses.

Do I need to tell you that the ending involves a montage of rueful grins, broad smiles, and meaningful little victorious nods, scored with upbeat rock music?

No, probably not. The second lm was directed by Guillermo del Toro, a gifted horror director with a sure feel for quease inducing, and was even better, I thought, than the rst.

Now comes Blade: Trinity, which is a mess. It lacks the sharp narrative line and crisp comic-book clarity of the earlier lms, and descends too easily into shapeless ght scenes that are chopped into so many cuts that they lack all form or rhythm.

The setup is a continuation of the earlier lms. Vampires are waging a war to infect humanity, and the most potent ghter against them is the half-human, half-vampire Blade Wesley Snipes.

He has been raised from childhood by Whistler Kris Kristo erson , who recognized his unique ability to move between two worlds, and is a fearsome warrior, but, despite some teammates, is seriously outnumbered.

Agents surround Blade headquarters, which is your basic action movie space combining the ambience of a warehouse with lots of catwalks and high places to fall from and stu that blows up good.

Dracula is some kinduva guy. His mouth and lower face unfold into a series of ever more horrifying fangs and suchlike, until he looks like a mug shot of the original Alien.

Parker Posey is an actress I have always had a ection for, and now it is mixed with increased admiration for the way she soldiers through an impossible role, sneering like the good sport she is.

Jessica Biel becomes the rst heroine of a vampire movie to listen to her iPod during slayings.

Vampires in this movie look about as easy to kill as the ghouls in Dawn of the Dead. They have a way of suddenly zzing up into electric sparks, and then collapsing in a pile of ash.

The vampire killers and their fellow Night Stalkers engage in an increasingly murky series of battles with the vampires, leading you to ask this simple strategic question: Why, since the whole world is theirs for the taking, do the vampires have to turn up and ght the Night Stalkers in the rst place?

Why not just gure out that since the Stalkers are in Vancouver, the vampires should concentrate on, say, Montreal? Not that the lm is outrageous.

That would be asking too much. It is dimwitted, unfunny, too shallow to be o ensive, and way too conventional to use all of those people standing around in the background wearing leather and chains and waiting hopefully for their cues.

This is a movie made for nobody, about nothing. The premise: Jerry Cuba Gooding Jr. Nick has heard that the ships are jammed with lonely women.

But they o end a travel agent, who books them on a cruise of gay men, ho ho. Well, it could be funny. Di erent characters in a di erent story with more wit and insight might have done the trick.

Uh, huh. So it does, but then again, so does the annual gay parade, and so do many gay nightclubs, where role-playing is part of the scene.

Some of the scenes play as if they are intended to be realistic. Then Jerry or Nick goes into hysterics of overacting. Then Jerry attempts to signal a helicopter to rescue him, and shoots it down with a are gun.

Or maybe you will not. Screwing metal plates to the soles of their work boots, they stomp in unison on at steel surfaces while banging on things.

Imagine Fred Astaire as a punchpress operator. The movie has been adapted by director Dein Perry from his own performance piece, which he might have been better advised to make into a concert lm.

It takes place in Australia, where Sean Adam Garcia dreams of becoming a dancer. His salt-of-the earth father, a steelworker, opposes the plan.

Sean cannot face life without dance in Newcastle, a steel town, despite the charms of the without dance in Newcastle, a steel town, despite the charms of the fragrant Linda Sophie Lee , a hairdresser who has given him to understand that he might someday, but not yet, enjoy her favors.

In Sydney, Sean encounters a hard-nosed choreographer William Zappa , a staple of dance movies, who is not easy to impress. I am not suggesting that all, or most, or many dancers are gay, but surely one has heard that some are?

Sean arrives in the morning, discovers that Mitchell and Linda have sailed into waters that Linda had assured him would remain uncharted pending their own maiden voyage, and becomes so depressed that we realize we have reached the Preliminary Crisis as defined in elementary screenwriting outlines.

Now what? It remains only for the steel mills to close so that Sean can realize that the millworkers should be retrained as computer experts.

But there are no computers. Why not have a bene t? Is there a scene near the end of the performance where the oncebitter dad enters, sees that his son is indeed talented, and forgives all?

Is Linda pardoned for her lapse of faithfulness? Do Mitchell and Sean realize that even though Mitchell may have slept with the woman Sean loves it was because Mitchell had too much to drink, something that could happen in any family?

Do the townspeople of Newcastle give a lusty ovation to the performance? Is there an encore? Veteran moviegoers will walk into the theater already possessing the answers to these and many other questions.

The Alma Mahler depicted in is a woman who prowls restlessly through the beds of the famous, making them miserable while displaying no charm of her own.

Whether this was the case with the real woman I do not know. The movie has three tones: overwrought, boring, laughable.

Sarah Wynter, who plays Alma, does not perform the dialogue but recites it. We rst meet her going to a ball her father has forbidden her to We rst meet her going to a ball her father has forbidden her to attend.

He is stern with her when she returns. So much for her adolescence. She has a airs throughout their marriage. Mahler is always going on about his music, you see, and thinks himself a genius.

Well, so does Gropius. The screenplay shows the egos of the men by putting big, clanging chunks of information in the dialogue.

Another a air is with the sculptor and painter Oskar Kokoschka Vincent Perez , who goes o to ght the war and is shot through the head and bayoneted after falling wounded.

In what the movie presents as a dying vision, he imagines Alma walking toward him. Since his head is at on the ground, she walks toward him sideways, rotated ninety degrees from upright.

She becomes involved with the writer Werfel. Then he sees she is pregnant and rejoices that she decided to have his baby after all, instead of an abortion.

A year. Ben A eck makes the same mistake in Pearl Harbor. At a loss to explain this lapse, I can only observe that another of his lmed biographies, King David , was also very bad.

Maybe there is something about a real-life subject that paralyzes him. Startseite Kontakt Sitemap.
