Apartment Zero Review


Excellent
The psycho-roommate thriller done the right way, with Firth's Felix Unger playing off Bochner's mysterious American... who may or may not be slaughtering the residents of Buenos Aires, where the film takes place. Creepy and original, Apartment Zero got a crummy update later with Single White Female and a good one with Shallow Grave. Donovan's direction recalls Polanski and his and Koepp's script exudes Hitchcock. A better combo I couldn't give you.

Steve Guttenberg falls in love with a ghost. Sounds about right.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit Review


Essential
There are roughly 255 solid laughs in the full-length animated feature Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Not that I counted each one, but the movie runs 85 minutes and feels like it crams at least three great gags into every 60-second span. You'll need observant eyes, or multiple viewings, to catch each witty aside weaved through the assorted scenes.

We've come to expect nothing less from Nick Park and his beloved claymation heroes. The innovative animator enjoys a near-perfect Academy Award batting average - three Oscars and four nominations, though in 1991 he was nominated twice in the same category and therefore could only take home one trophy.

A Merry War Review


Good
Fairly faithful version of George Orwell's Keep the Aspidistra Flying, which was not really his best work to begin with, but is passable enough as both lit and cinema.
