Generation Kill Review


Excellent
In their seven-part Iraq War miniseries adaptation of Evan Wright's book Generation Kill, David Simon and Ed Burns roll up a quiverful of arrows to fire off at various topics, ranging from the rampaging adrenaline of young men at war to the supreme idiocy of the invasion itself. However, the bright and gleaming theme running through most of these hard-bitten episodes has the filmmakers illustrating an age-old military maxim: Soldiers are often much more likely to be killed by the decisions of their submoronic leadership than they are by actions undertaken by the enemy. When that enemy is as pathetic a force as Saddam's Republican Guard, and the American officer corps obsessed more with the idea of taking Baghdad at warp speed than properly clearing the territory they're pushing through (both points made time and again in this series), that maxim is even more true than usual.

Wright was a Rolling Stone reporter who somehow got himself embedded in the First Recon Marine unit that was frequently at the very point of the entire American military machine rolling into Iraq in 2003. In the capable hands of Simon and Burns, his story of these turbo-trained alpha-male hunter-killers becomes something unlike most any other film project about the war. It opens in the sands of Kuwait, with the platoons tussling in the sand like overgrown boys, primed with teeth-bared intensity to launch themselves at Saddam's forces; only, in the manner of Jarhead, that great battle never quite seems to come.

Jeepers Creepers 2 Review


Weak
Horror guru Victor Salva struck gold with his 2001 monster flick, Jeepers Creepers. The film -- about a man-eating creature that sets its sights on two siblings who are returning home from spring break -- wasn't only a box-office hit, it was also a good movie. If Salva wanted to repeat the success of the first film, perhaps the writer-director should have followed a similar formula with Jeepers Creepers 2.

But that would make way too much sense. Instead, Salva forgets everything he did well in the first film and does it the opposite way here -- with much less success. What the original movie got right, this movie gets wrong, and it is difficult to watch such a talented filmmaker as Salva drift into horror-movie oblivion.
