Kids Review


Excellent
So much hype has surrounded Kids, the gritty, "not rated" feature about New York teens, that it was almost impossible to go into the film objectively. I was expecting an ultra-graphic film about sex, drugs, and life on the mean city streets. That's about what I got.

The film follows a few characters through one day in New York City. Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick) and his buddy Casper (Justin Pierce) skateboard, do a little petty thievery, drink malt liquor, hustle drugs, beat up a black man, throw some dice, and if a virgin or two happen to cross their path, Telly is only too happy to perform a little "virgin surgery." On their trail is Jennie (Chloe Sevigny), a prior virginal conquest of Telly's, who discovers she is HIV-positive that morning and is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

King Of The Jungle Review


Weak
John Leguizamo attempts to take a serious turn in King of the Jungle and frankly, it's as laughable as any of his comedy work. Such a funny comic actor, Leguizamo has nothing in the way of dramatic chops, here playing -- get this -- a mentally challenged young man whose civil rights activist mother is shot and killed. The plot summary claims the film is about his search for the killer, but really the film consists of an hour of Leguizamo running around and showing off his Gilbert Grape-esque acting skills, followed by 20 minutes of this pathetic search for justice. Just awful, namely due to a horrifically bad script, he is chased through the film by New York movie regulars Rosie Perez, Michael Rapaport, Marisa Tomei, and Annabella Sciorra.
