Truth be told, it's hard to call out 'Scary Movie 2' for being excessively disgusting and stupid, since that's precisely how the sequel to the most profitable R-rated movie in history is selling itself.
Instead, 'Someone Like You' follows formula, which means that Jane will realize her folly and realize that Eddie is really the guy for her (this is telegraphed when the pretty couple shares their feelings and eats Chinese food while seated on the kitchen counter and dressed in their fashionable underwear).
'Serendipity' offers absolutely no surprises -- and therefore, no unpleasant ones.
The rest of 'The Son's Room' concerns the survivors' efforts to live with their guilt, rage, sorrow, and, perhaps especially, with each other.
Conveys a recognizable, even sympathetic face upon the communist North, and speaks to the various divisions that have long troubled Korea.
It was a hot time in the city. The days sweltered and the nights vibrated with the latest craze, disco. In the Bronx in 1977, the Yankees were headed for a pennant, a Con Ed blackout inspired looting, assaulting, and arresting, and the .44 killer was shooting young dark-haired women and their dates as they necked in their parked cars.
Quoyle is yet another of Kevin Spacey's damaged souls, but a nice one.
Granted, psycho villains per se are not news. But that's sort of the point with Don -- perversely, he's hyper-aware of his ordinariness, his conformity to expectations of the people around him who submit and look away when he's in the room, like you're told to do when a mad dog approaches.
There is creative genius behind The Skulls. Someone, somehow, managed to pull together a pretty intriguing trailer for this thriller.
The Scream series has always been about movies. But unlike most movies, the Scream movies have always been smarter than commentaries about it, and in particular, smarter than the commentaries about its commentaries on movies.
In 'Storytelling', when Vi exclaims that her story 'really happened,' her professor observes, 'Once you start writing, it all becomes fiction.'"
The most annoying aspects of 'Say It Isn't So' have to do with its uneven tone, part ironic, wise-cracking condescension and part clueless, mean-spirited condescension.
