Obsessed (2002) Review


OK
A quarter century ago, John Badham was directing classics like Saturday Night Fever and WarGames. It's a tragedy, then, to find him directing made for TV movies these days -- for Lifetime, no less.

At least he's got the comely Jenna Elfman on his side in this true crime drama, which thank God is not nearly as horrible as you might be expecting. The pitch: He (Charles Powell) is a fancy pants doctor and says she's been stalking him mercilessly. She (Elfman) says they had a long-term relationship and she just got a little upset there at the end.

Requiem For Murder Review


Terrible
What's that smell? Good lord, it's this Molly Ringwald vehicle, wherein the long-faded star plays a classical radio station DJ(!) with an obsessed fan.

How obsessed? Well, he's killing off anyone who may have even the slightest negative thing to say about her. His M.O.: Poison, placed in a rare red wine. And he always leaves Molly's radio show playing on the radio when he does his deeds. And from this ultimately sketchy bit of police work, the cops' "hunch" leads them to the radio station to protect poor little Molly, who is obviously somehow involved in all this.

Grey Owl Review


Grim
Pierce Brosnan stars in this period epic (and I do mean epic - this movie is looooong) about a British guy in the early 1900s who took on the persona of a native American beaver trapper named Grey Owl. The beginning of the film sports Grey Owl trapping beavers then coming to his senses for the environmental damage its causing, then Mr. Owl crusades around the world preaching "Not enough beaver." (I'll say.) By the end of the picture, Grey Owl is outed as being the Brit that he is, but no one seems to care. I only fell asleep twice.
