Lone Star State Of Mind Review


Bad
What? The lone star state of mind seems to be one of drunken idiocy. A pile of B-list stars, including Joshua Jackson, DJ Qualls, and recovering junkie/model James (here "Jaime") King, star in this tale of, um, well, something about petty larceny and step-incest. Or, like, something. What a surprise that this wannabe indie crime comedy went straight to Starz!

Pearl Harbor Review


OK
There's a point in Pearl Harbor when Cuba Gooding Jr. leaps into a battleship's gun turret and starts shooting down Japanese planes while hell rages around him. It's a dramatic moment... until you realize that it's that "Show me the money!" guy from Jerry Maguire, shooting CGI bullets at a CGI plane... and you are reminded once again just how phony everything you've seen in Pearl Harbor has been.

Ironically, this incident, where ship's cook Dorie Miller took charge and shot back during America's worst hour on December 7, 1941, is just about the only true event to be found in the entire, oppressive three-hour film. (And our producers are quick to remind us of just how ripped-from-history this little vignette is. Never mind that Gooding has a pitiful excuse for a role with maybe five minutes of screen time.)

Slackers Review


Terrible
While Orange County's tale of college woe is delivering a fine time to comedy audiences, its bland, unfunny, useless stepbrother is unspooling right down the hall in the multiplex. Slackers, by first-time director and former fashion photographer Dewey Nicks, is such a futile, awkward, poor attempt at exposing the "wacky craziness" of higher education that even its title is completely wrong.

And that's because the main protagonists are not slackers at all -- in fact, they're a trio of heady, hard-working college cheaters. Beginning with an elaborate scam that actually gives the movie some potential, we are introduced to our leads (Devon Sawa, Jason Segel, and Michael C. Maronna) as they simultaneously shoot video of the women's cross-country team, steal a physics exam, and fake getting hit by a truck. But screenwriter David H. Steinberg (story writer on American Pie 2) tries building an entire feature based on one decent scenario. And he, as well as the rest of us, are in some deep trouble for the remainder of the 87 minutes.

Bulletproof Monk Review


Very Good
Thank God for late April. Tax refunds, nice warm weather, and all of the movies that weren't quite good enough to come out in May show up in theatres. They're not fine art and they're not summer blockbusters, but at least they're not House of 1000 Corpses. Yeah, tax day seems to be the crossover point between the god-awful movies of winter and early spring and the decent cinema of summer.

Case in point is Bulletproof Monk. It's not an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride, it's not laugh out loud funny, but it sure as hell ain't bad.

Slackers Review


Bad

Trying to disguise the fact that "Slackers" is really just a paint-by-numbers, boys-will-be-boys college comedy, first-time director Dewey Nicks slathers the flick in Tom Green-style bad taste outrageousness as its misogynistic cool jerk hero (Devon Sawa) lies his way into the bed of the generically gorgeous sweetheart.

A sampling of the movie's let's-see-what-we-can-get-away-with gags: Dave (Sawa) gets orally serviced by his girlfriend's horny middle-aged mom. The girlfriend's comedically creepy stalker does the same for a 70-year-old woman in a hospital bed. Three characters masturbate on screen, one of whom makes a puppet out of his privates in one of many scenes that have nothing to do with the plot and everything to do with pushing the envelope.

If that's the kind of thing you want to pay $8 or $9 to see, then be my guest. If you expect more than bottom-feeder humor from your multiplex experience, then "Slackers" is one frustrating film because buried within these dregs of humor are some audacious comedic gems.

Pearl Harbor Review


Weak

The handful of battle scenes that make up a good hour of "Pearl Harbor" are adrenaline-pumping and hyper-realistic on a massive scale.

You feel the impact of every single 7.7mm round from dive-bombing Japanese Zeros as they rip through pavement, planes and people in the infamous attack around which the film in centered. Director Michael Bay's camera goes inside cockpits, rides along on bombs from release to explosion, captures the terror of a torpedo in the water from the deck of a ship and includes some of the best special effects ever put on film.

The money shot is a hull-buckling blast that rips through the USS Arizona. It makes being on a luxury liner hit by an iceberg look like a 25-cent carnival ride.
