Overnight Delivery Review


Very Good
What, you think you've seen all of Reese Witherspoon's movies? This little gem all but vanished from theaters, but thanks to heavy rotation on cable, it's easy to catch one of young Reese's funniest roles -- as a stripper, no less! -- in Overnight Delivery.

Now available on DVD, the film follows the time-tested "stop the package before it gets to the girlfriend" plot, with Paul Rudd as our hapless cross-country traveller, trying to save the ultimate breakup letter from reaching its intended (Taylor), who turns out (of course) not to be cheating on him. Wacky hijinks ensue -- most of them being quite funny. Larry Drake's even-more-hapless delivery man (on his first day of work) faces off with the deadly duo. A serial killer runs across our hero's path. The gang runs out of money and has to dine and dash (with disastrous effect), and even Witherspoon's car takes a turn for the worse as it plummets from a cliff. This is a Road Trip that works equally well as a date movie (in fact it's one of my wife's favorite guilty pleasures, and mine too for that matter).

Dark Asylum Review


Terrible
Stop me if you've heard this one before: A mental patient (Larry Drake) terrorizes a comely doctor (Paulina Porizkova) in a mental asylum... and no one can get out!

The only thing clever about Dark Asylum is its casting of Judd Nelson as a fellow inmate who ends up helping Porizkova's doctor to escape "The Trasher," an obese and nearly mute psychopath who lives up to his moniker by destroying everything he touches... including his victims.

Darkman Review


Good
One of the lamer superheroes in comic book and movie history, Darkman is formed from massive burns over 40 percent of his body, his home-made synthetic skin which degrades after exposure to light, and an inability to feel pain. After girlfriend Frances McDormand nearly gets our scientist friend (Liam Neeson) killed, he goes all vigilante on the bad bad drug dealers in town. While Darkman has become something of a cult classic, it's also something of a dud. "Darkman" himself isn't very interesting as a hero, as a person, or as a movie. Director Sam Raimi is obviously just getting ready for his superior work in Spider-Man here.

The Journey Of August King Review


Excellent
Now, nothin' could be finer than to be in Carolina... unless'n your a slave on the run from your big plantation-owner boss in 1815.

Such is the situation that Annalees (Thandie Newton) finds herself in, and when she runs into an unsuspecting and kind-hearted farmer, August King (Jason Patric), on his three-day trip home from the market, the two find a strange friendship that threatens to blossom into a forbidden love. (It's a good thing that nice guy King finds her, too, because she's not very good at this hiding business, running into King 3 times in the first 15 minutes of the movie, before he takes her in.)
