Harmony and Discord in ‘3 Backyards’

3 Backyards hints at the kinds of darkness that typically marks the field of suburban representation, but in favoring the quotidian and the individual, never becomes melodramatic or a deep excavation of its characters' secrets.

Citizen Baines

'Citizen Baines' symbolizes the lack of imagination driving so much of prime-time.


Thirt3en Ghosts (2001)

The characters remain oblivious through much of 'Thirt3en Ghosts', and for that, they might count themselves fortunate.


Mansfield Park (1999)

On Mansfield Park's official Miramax website, the book upon which the film is loosely based is heralded as Jane Austen's third and most controversial novel. This claim, directed at Mansfield Park the novel, seems an attempt to re-invigorate interest in a text oftentimes considered Austen's blandest.


Bicentennial Man (1999)

Robots: we either love 'em or hate 'em. Movies have given us friendly Star Wars droids like R2-D2 and C-3PO and sadistic mechanical henchmen like Maximilian in The Black Hole. Science fiction television has shown both Buck Rogers' loyal sidekick Twiggy and the destructive Cylons of Battlestar Galactica.
