Dark Mirror Review


Terrible
For his debut feature-length Dark Mirror, the 35-year-old director Pablo Proenza has attempted to turn his heroine's fascination with light and angles -- she is a photographer and stay-at-home mother -- into his visual aesthetic. Sunlight blinds the eye as it pours through a window, and certain images are impaired by strains of artificial light in an attempt to call attention not only to the protagonist's state of mind but also the very process of filmmaking that is going on. Proenza wants us to be aware we are watching a film.

This is sadly the most interesting thing I can say about Dark Mirror, an otherwise dull, overwrought and hopelessly conventional thriller about a photographer named Deborah (Lisa Vidal) who triggers something when she takes a photo of herself in her bathroom mirror. Opening the gateway to the past or an alternative reality or, hey, her own madness, she begins to see images of a hooded slasher who inevitably begins to accrue a small body count.

Whatever It Takes Review


Good
I sat down to write this review with a gleeful sparkle in my eye, anticipating the bitter contempt I would quickly unleash on the entire cast and crew of Whatever It Takes, citing an array of blunders ranging from laughable dramatic moments to a disappointingly predictable adaptation of the already over-used plot movements of Cyrano de Bergerac. Then I remembered Porky's and had a change of heart.

Whatever It Takes is actually a solid pinning of the high school romantic comedy. There's nothing especially original about its plot or characters, but most of its target audience won't notice. Basically, what we have here is the standard boy-wants-girl-but-she's-out-of-his-league-so-his-friend-coaches-him-and-she's-gullible-enough-to-fall-for-it picture. The twist is that this is a two-way exchange. Ryan Woodman (Shane West) is a supposedly geeky high school senior lusting after popular girl Ashley Grant (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe -- She's All That). Chris Campbell (James Franco of Freaks and Geeks) is a dumb but popular jock looking to bed Maggie Carter (Marla Sokoloff), the smart-but-undervalued hottie who lives next door to Ryan. So the two begin a completely unsurprising story arc in which the two most prominent teenage girl stereotypes fall for every line in the book without ever suspecting a thing.
