Seventh Son Trailer


John Gregory is a Spook charged with ridding the country of witches, beasts and malevolent forces. But, as the years tick by, he realises that he must enlist another to keep evil at bay in the form of Thomas Ward, the seventh son of the seventh son who possesses the power to see things others cannot. When the powerful witch Mother Malkin makes her return, after Gregory thought he'd defeated her years ago, Thomas is forced to confront her and slay her once and for all. But things aren't as easy they seem when he befriends a witch girl who convinces him that not all witches are bad. Will Thomas succeed in sending Malkin back to the grave? Or will he find himself putting his trust in the wrong people?

Nomad Review


Weak
I get the sense that the story of the making of Nomad is far more interesting than the film itself. Shot in Kazakhstan over the course of two years (weather and funding caused delays) with the urging of the Kazakh president, acquired and doctored by Harvey Weinstein, and starring a cast of Americans speaking Kazakh and Kazakhs speaking English with assorted in-line dubbing all over the place (Bai Ling!), this horse-and-yurt epic is picturesque but baffling. What was behind it all? An attempt to recover the dignity of the Kazakh people after the PR debable of Borat?

As for the end product: Nomad will appeal mainly to two small special-interest groups: those with a fascination for 18th century Central Asian geopolitics, and those with a fascination for costume design. Also, people who like swords and horses.

Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch Review


OK
While I somehow missed Stitch: The Movie, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch stands as the second direct-to-video sequel to the strangely popular Lilo & Stitch theatrical film. Fortunately, Lilo & Stitch 2 occurs chronologically between the two films, so even if, like me, you haven't seen this Stitch movie, you won't miss what is sure to be the nuance and deft symbolism of this film.

To bring you up to speed, young Lilo (Dakota Fanning) lives with big sister Nani (Tia Carrere) in their Hawaii home. Not only does alien Stitch live with them, but so does his "evil" creator and a one-eyed alien named Pleakley. The quintet gets by just fine, with Nani trying to play mom and Lilo trying to get ahead in the world of competitive hula, only now it turns out that Stitch didn't get "his molecules fully charged" when he was created, so he starts going a little crazy. (You can tell by the green eyes that appear at the worst possible moment.) Evil scientist tries to build a machine to "recharge" him, but will it be too late?

Dracula Iii: Legacy Review


Terrible
I have a British friend whose favorite curse is "Bloody hell!!" It strikes me that there's no better way to describe Dracula III: Legacy. Bloody hell pretty much sums it up.

The latest installment in this "Wes Craven Presents..." series of vampire tales, Dracula III continues the saga of the mysterious, once-bitten Father Vincent Uffizi (Jason Scott Lee) and his wise-cracking sidekick Luke (Jason London), as they head deep into the Romanian forest to kill Dracula once and for all, and to rescue Joe's girlfriend Elizabeth (Law and Order SVU's Diane Neal), who turned into a bloodsucker in a sexy red dress in the last movie.

Dracula II: Ascension Review


Terrible
What's the sequel to Dracula 2000? Not Dracula 2001, no, it's Dracula II, and alas, this one couldn't even make it to theaters.

Now on a direct-to-video shelf near you, Dracula II bears no real relation to its predecessor, namely in that it has none of the same cast and nothing to do with the former story, except that there's a vampire in it.

Map Of The Human Heart Review


Excellent
I was enchanted with Map of the Human Heart when I first saw it in 1993. Revisiting it today I am less enthralled but still charmed. It's one of those movies that makes you legitimately feel like you've become part of its universe, particularly the scenes in the frigid arctic, which you can almost feel on your skin. A variety of actors play our two leads from childhood to adulthood, as an Eskimo boy and half-Indian girl taunt one another as children, then grow to love each other as adults -- despite the ravages of a raging World War, which makes for a fantastic love story backdrop.

Soldier Review


Grim
Just how many times has Paul Anderson seen Dune? I mean, when you find yourself on a planet with massive wastelands, lots of sandstorms, and one person who leads the social group that he's not originally from to safety or some such crap, doesn't that remind you of a certain David Lynch film circa 1984?

Maybe if he was in Lynch's territory it would have turned out better. Anderson, director of Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon, set his sights on making his "sci-fi masterpiece" with a human element this time by setting himself down to work on a good premise movie, and ended up screwing that up, which you'd figure would be easy. If he'd made it out of studio, tried the independent road, the film might just have turned out quasi-semi-decent, instead of ye load of crap which we see before us now. But he decided to stay with the high paycheck security of a movie that relies on being blind and not noticing the plot holes that are large enough to walk through.
