Caprica Review


Excellent
In the '70s, it was seen as a middling Star Wars rip-off, its story of hmans fleeing a deadly robot race nothing more than an excuse for cheap, made-for-TV effects. Now, three decades later, a revamped Battlestar Galactica has been hailed as one of the small screen's significant accomplishments. With the five-year run of the original series now over and done with, creative team Ronald D. Moore and David Eick are prepping a new franchise that will follow the technology that gave birth to the android threat and the oddly contemporary battle between faiths and cultural diversity that surrounds the science. And from the 90-minute pilot movie for Caprica, it looks like the pair has parlayed their talents into another winner.

When their families are torn apart by a terrorist act, robotics tycoon Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) and Tauron lawyer Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) come together to heal their obvious open wounds. And when the man behind the burgeoning Cylon technology learns that his late genius daughter Zoe (Alessandra Toressani) had devised a way of creating a "copy" of herself via a personality database, he vows to find a means of downloading that information into something more "physical." Because of his underworld ties with the Tauron mob, Graystone asks Adama for a favor. In exchange for a little corporate espionage, he will promise to bring his child back via the program. At first, Adama acquiesces -- not so much for himself as for his young son William (Sina Najafi). But as he confronts his criminal brother Sam (Sasha Roiz) over Graystone's request, he realizes that man is not meant to play God.

American Fusion Review


Good
Can a 49-year-old Asian-American divorcee find true happiness with a middle-aged Mexican-American dentist? Give that extended-family culture clash stories usually have happy endings (Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story are exceptions, of course), the chances are good. In the overcrowded and good-natured American Fusion, two California families collide, and much, as they say, is learned.

Meet the cast: Yvonne (Sylvia Chang), the meek woman looking for love, has her hands full taking care of her aged Chinese mother (Lang Yun); her volatile ex-con brother Tony (Collin Chou), who is having trouble conceiving a baby with his wife; her sister, whose son Steve (James Chang) is a stripper; and her 28-year-old son Josh (Randall Park), who is utterly unmotivated in life.

The Adventures Of Tom Thumb & Thumbelina Review


Good
I have no idea if there are prior Tom Thumb or Thumbelina movies before this one (actually, I'm sure there are -- I just don't know if they're actually related to it), but this new Adventure certainly features an all-new, all-star cast.

Jennifer Love Hewitt (who's making a cottage industry out of voicing animated heroines) and Elijah Wood (who's making a cottage industry out of playing smaller-than-normal characters) take center stage as the titular leads, ultra-short teens in search of destiny (and quite naturally, one another, though they don't know it yet).

Paid In Full Review


Good

The familiar story told in "Paid In Full," the story of a good ghetto kid seduced into the drug trade with tragic results, covers no new territory. But it's a story told so well -- with veracity, raw compassion, well-drawn characters and strong performances -- that its common cautionary tale feels as compelling as it might have been in the 1980s, when the film takes place and before this type of movie became its own genre.

"Paid" plays as if it were made by people who lived it. People like Ace (Wood Harris), a reticent clerk at a neighborhood dry cleaners who has always been happy to blend into the woodwork and just be a survivor, even as he sees his closest friends becoming flush with cash, clothes and cool cars."That ain't my flow, man," Ace says when his best friend Mitch (Mekhi Phifer) tries to lure him into his small-time drug empire.

But as temptations mount (a local Colombian cartel middleman leaves him a cocaine "tip" in a jacket pocket at the cleaners), power becomes attractive (he'd like to get his sister away from her pimp-dealer boyfriend) and opportunities present themselves (Mitch gets arrested, leaving his street business up for grabs). Ace succumbs, in small increments, to the enticements of what seems like an effortless road to living well.
