Gamer Review


Bad
Bursting with their trademark visual style, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) attack the screen with this twist on the virtual reality genre.

Unfortunately, the film is a cacophonous mess without a single interesting character.

In the nearish future, roleplay game-maker Ken Castle (Hall) has made his fortune with two games that let people live vicariously through others: the sex-and-party Society and the war-and-destruction Slayers. The twist is that the gamers are controlling actual people due to nano technology implanted in the performers' brains. In Slayers, they're all death row inmates firing real bullets, and the global megastar performer is Kable (Butler), controlled by rich geek Simon (Lerman). But Kable longs to escape and find his wife (Valletta), and a renegade hacker (Bridges) sets his escape in motion.

The Eavesdropper Review


Good
Points for originality, I'd say. First-time writer/director Andrew Bakalar (IMDB lists only two craft services -- catering -- credits for Alien Avengers and Humanoids from the Deep) turns in an interesting film out of what ought to be a direct-to-video experience. The Eavesdropper is high concept all the way: Government experiment turns a newly deaf patient (Lucy Jenner) into a superhearing machine. In fact, she can hear people's thoughts, which makes her an expert hostage negotiator and potentially awesome military intelligence operator. But it's also a bit tricky, because she can hear the motivations of the doctors who are poking and prodding her (including Star Trek alumni John de Lancie and George Takei).

Naturally there's a conspiracy here and a woman in jeopardy, and before the end our heroine will turn the tables on everyone, right? Yeah, and that's fine. Jenner is a solid actress -- reminiscent of another Trekker, Michelle Forbes -- and she does all that can be expected with a rather rote script. Supporting cast is on target, but the whole effect is rather muted. Too much time is spent meandering on tangents that never really pay off or, worse, that we just don't care about. The entire film is bookended with unnecessary backstory and future-story about the woman's life. It comes across a bit too much like padding.

Woman On Top Review


Bad

When a movie begins with a lot of narration, it's rarely a good sign. It almost invariably means the director's first cut of the picture was flaccid, and in order to shore it up, scenes from the beginning were diced into a montage to get the audience to the core of the story sooner.

"Woman on Top" begins with about 10 minutes of fairy-tale style narration, all about how a beautiful Brazilian girl named Isabella (talented Spanish enchantress Penelope Cruz) was cursed by the gods with extreme motion sickness, but blessed an ambrosial ability for the culinary arts.

The narrator goes on to explain how this girl grew up and met a sexy waiter (Murilo Benicio) whom she seduced with her cooking. They married and opened a restaurant together, where she quickly became frustrated because she did all the work and he got all the credit.
