Superman III Review


OK
The third entry in the Superman series stands as one of history's most infamous cautionary tales about the danges of computers, and it's also one of the silliest. Not only does Richard Pryor engineer a way to steal all the rounded half-pennies from his employer, he manages to synthesize kryptonite (using tobacco tar as an ingredient where needed) and design an artificial intelligence system that "wants to live." No Lex Luthor this time out; Pryor's employer is Robert Vaughn -- a corporate mogul trying to use technology to cause world disasters and profit from them. There's barely any Lois Lane either -- she's on vacation -- so Superman/Clark Kent finds himself with his highschool crush, Lana Lang (Annette O'Toole), who is about twice as much fun as Margot Kidder ever was.

King's It To Return To Tv


Stephen King Peter Filardi Tim Curry John Ritter Annette O'Toole Seth Green Pennywise

Classic Stephen King horror mini-series IT is set for a remake. SALEM'S LOT screenwriter Peter Filardi is reportedly reworking the script of the 1990 TV epic, which starred Tim Curry as a demonic clown. The original also starred John Ritter, Annette O'Toole and a young Seth Green. The mini-series, based on King's novel of the same name, follows the fortunes of seven kids fighting an evil clown, called Pennywise, in 1960s Maine.

Cat People (1982) Review


Good
I've never seen the original 1942 Cat People (I have now -Ed.), but I have a hard time imagining it bears much resemblance to this 1982 remake, courtesy of director Paul Schrader (American Gigolo), writer Alan Ormsby (who wrote Porky's II and four of the Substitute movies), and stars Nastassja Kinski and Malcolm McDowell.

Bizarre from frame one, the story tells of an ancient race of werewolf-like cat people, doomed to turn into black leopards (is that the same thing as a panther?) if they mate with humans. The only way to maintain human form, they say, is to mate with another cat person -- or, apparently, to devour a human in a lusty rage.

Smile Review


Very Good
The film references tend to term it "overlooked," but there are many of us who never forgot the wonderful comedy Smile from its theatrical release in 1975. '75 was a great year for movies, and it could be that Smile, like the fresh-faced competitors that populate it, just faced some really rough competition that year; maybe, in the company of Nashville, The Story of Adèle H., One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Dog Day Afternoon, Grey Gardens, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and so on, this relatively modest beauty fades into the wallpaper. Maybe its comparatively adult wit would get lost among the frantic adolescence of screen comedy in any year. Whatever the reason, it's a pleasure to welcome back a really funny and distinctively American satire, now available on DVD.

Smile charts the progress of a round of finals for the fictitious Young American Miss pageant being held in Santa Rosa, California. The civic force behind this event is a community-minded car salesman named Big Bob Freelander (Bruce Dern), a yokel with good intentions, an abiding optimism, and an inexhaustible reserve of clichéd bromides about the importance of a positive attitude. Brenda DiCarlo (Barbara Feldon) acts as pageant coordinator and den mother to the young contestants; her husband Andy's suicidal tendencies are exacerbated, rather than quelled, by all the forced goodwill she radiates and by the pageant's general, bright, can-do American vibe. Big Bob, especially, finds this mystifying - what on Earth is there to be blue about in a land of such copious opportunity and beautiful young women such as ours? - and the best advice he can muster for his desperate friend is to "go out there and have some fun."

Here On Earth Review


Very Good
In David Mamet's The Spanish Prisoner, Steve Martin puts his two cents in on doing business in America. "Always do business as if the person you're doing business with is trying to screw you, because they probably are. And if they're not, you can be pleasantly surprised." The entertainment industry is a business, and I conduct myself around this business with the expectation that each movie that I see will be terrible. That way, as I come out of the movie, I can be pleasantly surprised.

Don't think I'm crazy... It's reverse psychology: it's not supposed to make sense.

Here On Earth Review


OK

Here's a quote from the "Here On Earth" press kit: "The lives of three young people -- a rich student, a girl from the 'wrong side of the tracks' and her boyfriend -- unexpectedly intersect during one fateful summer..." It's enough to make one's eyes roll like slot machines.

So imagine my surprise when this teenage romantic tear-jerker managed to overcome its connect-the-dots script, its paltry romantic chemistry and its endless parade of empty musical montage sequences to become affecting enough to make a whole row of college girls at the preview screening cry. OK, maybe I got a little misty, myself. But just don't tell anybody, will you?

The palatably promising Leelee Sobieski ("Deep Impact") stars as Samantha, daughter of a small town diner owner whose love life has since childhood involved only one boy -- Jasper (Josh Hartnett, "The Faculty"), a hot-headed dairy farmer's son in a John Deere cap.

Kidder Joins Smallville Cast


Margot Kidder Superman Tom Welling Lois Lane Christopher Reeve Annette O'Toole

Actress Margot Kidder will return to her Superman roots by appearing in TV show SMALLVILLE.

Smallville, which stars Tom Welling as a young CLARK KENT struggling with the powers which will later make him SUPERMAN, will feature Kidder - who played Lois Lane in the films of the 1970s and 1980s - as an "emissary" to her old Superman co-star Christopher Reeve's DR SWANN character.

Kidder's character, BRIDGETTE CROSBY, will appear in the season opener and will even share scenes with Clark Kent's mother, played by Annette O'Toole. O'Toole played Clarke Kent's love interest LANA LANG in SUPERMAN 3.

Sting's Slim Oscar Chances


Sting Annette O'Toole Fran Walsh Annie Lennox

Superstar Sting is so certain he won't pick up an OSCAR for YOU WILL BE MY AIN TRUE LOVE later this month (29FEB04) - he isn't going to bother writing an acceptance speech.

The British singer has been nominated for an ACADEMY AWARD for Best Original Song for the track from the COLD MOUNTAIN soundtrack and doesn't fancy his chances up against BENIOT CHAREST + SYLVIAN CHOMET, T BONE BURNETT + ELVIS COSTELLO, MICHAEL McKEAN + Annette O'Toole and Fran Walsh, HOWARD SHORE + Annie Lennox.

Sting says if he won, which would be a big if, he would "be spontaneous and say how wonderful I felt."
