Grassroots Review


Good

There's a terrific sense of righteous anger in this scruffy comedy about disenfranchised people shaking American politics to its core. But the film plays it far too safely, dealing lightly with important themes while refusing to take a real stand on anything. It also never makes the most of its likeable, fully invested cast.

Based on a true story, the film is set in 2001 Seattle, where long-time buddies Phil and Grant (Biggs and Moore) are both unemployed journalists. When Grant decides to run for city council, Phil helps with the campaign. Grant's main passion is public transportation, which he sees as a social justice issue since it's what allows lower-income people to work and improve their lives. And his counter-culture approach makes him stand out opposite the unruffled incumbent (Cedric). On the other hand, Phil's girlfriend Emily (Ambrose) starts to worry when Grant's campaign becomes a centre for frat-boy antics, including rather a lot of pot-smoking. But this populist approach is like a breath of fresh air to voters.

Watching these no-hopers take on a well-oiled political machine is pretty inspirational, especially when the characters have so much raw charm. Biggs is superb in the central role, grounding even the most chaotic scenes in earthy honesty. By contrast, Moore feels a little overwrought as the hyperactive Grant, which makes us wonder why anyone would take him seriously. Although he nicely brings out Grant's inner resolve. And both Ambrose and Cedric add complex layers to their rather thinly written characters.

Happy Campers Review


Good
It may be a bit of an acquired taste, but Happy Campers (from Heathers writer Daniel Waters), but the film definitely deserved a better fate than being dumped on home video. Nonetheless it's worth a spin if you happen to come across it: It's the usual hijinks at Camp Bleeding Dove, with horny counselors running amok when camp leader (Peter Stormare) is incapacitated and a hurricane strikes the grounds. Dominique Swain steals the show as a Jan Brady-like innocent who wants to entertain her young charges and keep them pristine, but also pines for Wichita (Brad Renfro) all the same. The film gets a little muddy as the movie gets weirder, suffering from the same problems that made Wet Hot American Summer a curious oddity instead of a cult classic. Characters make abrupt personality shifts, and the in-joke just goes a bit too far. Funny? Yes. Another Heathers? Not quite.

The Rage: Carrie 2 Review


Weak
What is it about the teen movie? Is it just attractive people put in with bad writing and acting? Are we supposed to enjoy it? The original Carrie broke that tradition. It was different. The Rage: Carrie 2 falls back into the mold.

Emily Bergl stars as Rachel Lang, the new telekinetic teen who can move things with her mind in accordance to her emotions. Rachel is an outcast, with only one friend. I do like the way they show the class system of high schools (football players being on top) but if you want to see a movie that displays that in a better way, go rent Welcome to Dollhouse. Anyhoo, Rachel's friend jumps off a building after being used by a football player (Home Improvement's Zachary Ty Brian). Rachel is crushed, alone in the world until she is sought after by another football player (this time with good intentions) played by Party of Five's Jeremy London. Soon Rachel is part of the in-crowd, but knowing the original, we know she's going to be setup so she can display her, uh, Rage.
