The Words Trailer


Rory Jansen is a young writer who is failing to achieve any kind of literary recognition and is on the edge of giving up as he and his wife Dora struggle to pay the bills. One day, as a kind gesture, Dora buys Rory an antique looking leather case in which he later discovers a collection of papers detailing a highly compelling and well written novel. In a moment of utter desperation and thoughtlessness, Rory copies the story and gets it published under his own name finally achieving the recognition and success he so craved. It's only a matter of time before he gets found out and he begins to realise how many people's lives he has affected by his one moment of stupidity. He must face the consequences for stealing the work of another writer and find a way to fix everything.

The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor Review


Bad
In the classic movie monster hierarchy, the cloth-clad Mummy really scrapes the bottom of the scare barrel. Aside from his close kinship with the zombie -- sadly, this is one Egyptian artifact that avoids the mandatory skin eating -- there's really nothing inherently spooky about a reanimated corpse with limited super(natural) powers. This is especially true of the sarcophagus' latest big screen incarnation. In Rob Cohen's horrid The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, our wrapped rascal is literally as menacing as an inert stone statue.

Ever since the end of WWII, the rough riding O'Connell Family -- Rick (Brendan Fraser), Evelyn (Maria Bello, subbing for Rachael Weisz), and college age son Alex (Luke Ford) -- have been in semi-retirement. Gone are the days when they would circumnavigate the globe looking for ancient treasure and kicking antiquated butt. When they get the chance to return a precious diamond to the people of China, they jump at the chance. Unfortunately, the gem is instrumental in the resurrection of the evil Emperor Han (Jet Li), a ruthless tyrant bent on conquering the world. Luckily, an ancient witch (Michelle Yeoh) has cursed him to an eternity embedded in rock. Of course, it won't be long before our haphazard adventurers have him up and around -- and seeking immortality via his massive terra cotta army.

Romance & Rejection Review


Weak
Mike (Reece Dinsdale) is a lonely composer looking for love in the big city (London, I guess, in this case). Only John Hannah's presence is meriting the release of this film on DVD six years after its creation.

In the end, this sad-sack melodrama/romantic comedy proves it's nothing new -- with Mike's neurotic and nerve-wracked pursuit of Clara Bellar (last seen as the Nanny robot from A.I.) taking up the bulk of the film. We're meant to find this as amusing, but Dinsdale invents Mike as such an enormously unlikable loser that I actually felt a little giddy when he kept missing the girl's phone calls.

Sliding Doors Review


Very Good
What would have happened if Gwynny caught the train? Her hair wouldn't have been brown, for starters! Sliding Doors is an unabashed, melancholic Gwynny vehicle, which isn't such a bad thing since she's so darn cute. The story, about a hapless Brit who we follow during two alternate realities -- one stuck in a loveless relationship, one striking out on her own, is fairly fun but wholly improbable. Which is why this is a romantic comedy-drama and not a flat-out drama (which would have just been depressing). The ending is not altogether satisfying, but it's certainly an original (though widely copied since).

The Mummy Returns Review


Bad
That darn mummy!

Stab him, burn him, unravel him (or whatever Brendan Fraser & Co. did to him in the original; I can't even remember)... he still keeps coming back!

I'm With Lucy Review


Weak
Monica Potter gets dumped, then ends up on countless blind dates in the aftermath, which gives us the relationships all sliced up and out of order. Which guy will she end up with? The freaky baseball player or the kooky entemologist? Or someone else? Doubtless you'll care as little as I did, since Potter's character is too vapid to be worth keeping in the first place.

Circus Review


Good
Succeed in following the twists and turns of Circus and you'll deserve a medal. Quite literally, this film is one of the most perplexing caper pictures I've ever seen -- which likely explains its mysterious disappearance from theaters, practically before it ever arrived.

It is certainly not a film without some merit. With its surprisingly apt cast, including notables John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Famke Janssen (Rounders), Peter Stormare (Fargo), and Eddie Izzard, it's hard not to like this bunch of clowns (no pun intended) as they stumble through a double-, triple-, even quadruple-cross plot ultimately involving a great deal of money that one lucky crook will end up with. But who?

Four Weddings And A Funeral Review


Excellent
In the spring of 1994, Four Weddings and a Funeral was an international hit, earning an Oscar nomination for Best Picture and turning Hugh Grant into a star. It was the My Big Fat Greek Wedding of its day. There's just one tiny difference. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a far superior movie in just about every way, a funny and stirring look at stumbling toward love and the effect of friendship.

And, there's not a bottle of Windex anywhere to be found.

The Mummy Returns Review


Bad

Remember how badly "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" turned out when Steven Spielberg tried to wedge an impish kid into his successful archeology-action-adventure formula? Well, deja vu.

How pathetically contrived and sadly unoriginal is the obviously rushed-into-production "The Mummy Returns"? Everything you need to know can be gleaned from these three facts: 1) Prim-but-sexy Egyptologist Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) turns out to be the reincarnation of Queen Nefertiti. 2) Lantern-jawed adventurer Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) finds out that a tattoo he bears means he was born to be a Medjai warrior. And, 3) their ragamuffin 8-year-old son Alex (Freddie Boath) is "The Chosen One" -- although the movie makes little attempt to explain what that means.

All together now: Oh, brother!
