Adam Review


Weak
Quirky and cute almost to the point of distraction, the offbeat romance is only rescued by its likeable cast and an intriguing storyline. But the writer-director overstates everything, and encourages his actors to do the same.

Adam (Dancy) lives in a Manhattan flat on his own after the death of his father. He has Asperger syndrome, working as a toy company microchip developer and pretty hopeless at relationships. Then Beth (Byrne) moves into his building, and they strike up a friendship that leads to romance. She's attracted to his honesty, although her parents (Gallagher and Irving) aren't so sure. And the events that follow in both Adam's and Beth's lives put a heavy strain on their relationship.

Crossing Delancey Review


Good
Amy Irving headlines a strange trip through New York love, Annie Hall style, as her bookstore staffer encounters a headstrong author and a pickle maker en route to romance. Will she find happiness in the arms of paper or dill? Cryptic and meandering, don't be surprised if you have trouble caring who she falls for in the end.

Carried Away (1996) Review


OK
It's not every day we get full frontal nudity from Dennis Hopper and Amy Irving -- much less in the same scene. And thank God for that. But behind the borderline creepiness of the movie lies a tepid story: Hopper and Irving are rural types carrying on a tentative romance. But student Amy Locane (who specializes in this role) comes into Hopper's classroom, and before 10 minutes are up, she's naked and bedding him in the barn. Eventually this turns out badly for all parties, as you might imagine. Worst, possibly, for the audience.

Hide And Seek Review


Bad
Forget what the Chinese New Year Calendar says -- so far, it's the year of the horror movie. Not even one month into 2005, and we're already being bombarded with a steady stream of empty and inadequate thrillers. White Noise disguised its mediocrity with fancy scientific jargon for looking at television static. The latest, Hide and Seek, turns a simple children's game into a boneless, psychological pretense for stale chills.

After the apparent suicide of Alison Callaway (Amy Irving), husband David (Robert De Niro) and daughter Emily (Dakota Fanning) pick up the pieces of their broken lives and escape to the serenity (we know otherwise) of upstate New York. David, a psychologist, feels the move to the countryside will help them recover. Emily is especially devastated, but the pair relocates despite the strong objections of her doctor Katherine (Famke Janssen). They move into a vast, empty mansion with secret rooms and hideouts -- three times the space they really need. The house is clearly used as a plot device more than a place of rejuvenation.

Carrie (1976) Review


OK
I might be the only person in the world who thinks Brian DePalma's 1976 classic thriller Carrie (now out on DVD) is one of the most overrated, disappointing horror films of all time, but I stand behind my review, and I swear I can knock down just about any argument its defenders throw. This is my third viewing of the film. Every time I watch it, I find major problems in the story for all the same reasons.

Carrie is the tale of a high school senior named Carrie White, aptly played by Sissy Spacek, who spends her days at school as the center of nearly every cruel ridicule and her hours at home with a constricting, sadistic, fanatically religious mother (Piper Laurie). Let's just say the mother is like a female version of Sergeant Hartman in Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, and Carrie is the distressed Private Pyle.

The Confession Review


Good
Strangish revenge/legal tangle movie, made for cable but above the usual fare you find there. Kingsley as a murderer is a bit, well, of a stretch.

Traffic Review


Weak

"Traffic" is a socially and politically grandstanding soap opera about the narcotics trade and the futility of the "war on drugs." It's a film about how that war is propagated by bureaucratic demagogues in the United States government, not because they think they can stem the flow of illegal substances but because they think saying they want to is a way to win elections.

OK. Point taken.

"Traffic" is also gritty and realistic feat of cinematic logistics, following no less than 15 major characters (and more than 50 speaking parts) through several complex, well-acted storylines about all sides of the drug trade -- from kingpins to cops to policy wonks to addicts. So my hat is off to the picture's ever-brilliant director, Steven Soderbergh ("Erin Brockovich"), who certainly does a fine juggling act, involving the audience in every story on a personal level.

Tuck Everlasting Review


Good

Disney has always been hit-or-miss when bringing beloved kids' books to the screen, and the studio's latest -- an adaptation of Natalie Babbit's "Tuck Everlasting" -- is a little of both.

It's an early 20th Century story of a curious, affluent teenage girl, stifled by her stiff-upper-lip period parents, who gets lost while seeking an afternoon of freedom in the deep woods behind her estate and meets an enticing young man with a mystical secret -- drinking from a nearby spring has made him and his whole family immortal.

Afraid of being discovered by the outside world that would covet what they've come to consider a curse, the Tuck clan feels they cannot let the young lady go home, even as the area is scoured by search parties. But before long Winnie (Alexis Bledel) isn't exactly aching to leave, having come to know both freedom and romance with the handsome, worldly Jesse (Jonathan Jackson).

The Rage - Carrie 2 Review


OK

There are folks out there who like to rent "Carrie," the unintentionallyhigh camp 1976 horror movie, get a group of friends together and treatit like "Rocky Horror."

You know who you are.
