The Go-Getter Review


Very Good
Unless you're a Star Wars nerd, you've probably never set eyes on Martin Hynes. Nine years ago, Hynes played a young George Lucas in George Lucas in Love, a smart comedy short that offered the supposition that the grand lord of geekdom got his inspiration for the classic trilogy from classmates at a Los Angeles college. Since its release, it has garnered a cult classic status while its director went on to direct limp teen comedies Sleepover and Sydney White. As for Hynes, he became a screenwriter for several unrealized properties and ended up writing the first draft of Stealing Harvard, the thankfully-forgotten Tom Green comedy.

Six years after his Harvard cred, Hynes seems to have returned to more fertile and vital ground with The Go-Getter, his second full-length film and a minor hit at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Hynes, who also wrote the film, never shows up on screen but the nerdy impresario he embodied years ago can be seen in the guise of Mercer White (Lou Taylor Pucci), a high-school dropout who takes to the road with a stolen car not long after his mother's death. Initially, Mercer's voyage has two goals: to find and inform his half-brother Arlen (Jsu Garcia) of their mother's death, and to get all sweaty-like with Joely (Jena Malone), a thong-sporting, middle-school crush of Mercer's.

Semi-Pro Review


Weak
Will Ferrell hasn't run out of sports to exploit in the name of comedy, but if Semi-Pro is any indication, he has run out of original ideas.

The funnyman's stable of petulant and grossly overconfident buffoons grows with the addition of Jackie Moon, owner, coach, and starting power forward for the Flint Tropics, a fictional ABA basketball squad hoping to survive the 1976 merger with the NBA.

Diggers Review


OK
Listless clam diggers in 1970s Long Island... sounds like a recipe for comedy, right?

I'm not sure what director Katherine Dieckmann (best known as an R.E.M. video director) thought she was grabbing hold of here, but this melodrama (tinged with cheap gags) is all atmosphere, broad Lawn Guyland accents, and jokes at the expense of Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford. Even the "crying Indian" makes an appearance.

Insomnia (2002) Review


OK
Director Christopher Nolan, the auteur behind the masterful Memento, has made an odd choice for a follow-up, choosing to remake the Norwegian film Insomnia, which starred Stellan Skarsgård as a troubled cop investigating a murder north of the Arctic Circle, where the sun never sets. Nolan has kept the story intact, moving it 'round the Circle from Norway to Alaska, putting monster stars Al Pacino and Robin Williams in the lead roles... and telling the whole story backwards!

Okay, I'm joking about the backwards part, but to tell you the truth, this retread could have used it. It certainly needs a lot more than Pacino's overacting and cinematographer Wally Pfister's mood lighting to be watchable.

Oxygen Review


Good
Passable thriller about a psycho escape artist who buries a woman alive and screws with the head of the cop on the case. Cinemax late night at its best.

Welcome To Mooseport Review


Bad
If you thought the issues that plagued Florida voters during the last Presidential election were a bit unbelievable, then welcome to Mooseport - a coastal Maine town where electing a mayor is more difficult than counting hanging chads. In this film, an "election" means finding the most qualified person to decide the "tough" issues like where a stop sign should be placed or who should date the town veterinarian.

Enter former President Monroe Cole (Gene Hackman). He's the most liked President since JFK, and he has decided to make Mooseport his retirement haven. Not that he has much of a choice since his ex-wife, the former First Lady, has nearly cleaned him dry in a nasty divorce. Mooseport is also going through a crisis. The mayor has recently died, and the troubled city council cannot find anyone willing to run for office. With President Cole now living in town, the city council sees him as the answer to their prayers, and after enough of their pressure, Cole enters the race for no other reason than to keep his last possession: his vacation home.

Melvin Goes To Dinner Review


Good
It's My Dinner With Andre and a Couple of His Friends. Bob Odenkirk's slacker version of the classic "talking around the table" drama is suprisingly stolen not by the titular Melvin but by his confused pal Joey (Matt Price), whose tale of a near-miss infidelity trumps anything else in the movie. The rest of the time it's a not-quite-believable riff on sex and other tawdry matters clearly torn from the theater -- with some memorable cutaways to the likes of an "insane" Jack Black seeking mental help.

Primary Colors Review


Very Good
A more timely film would be difficult to imagine. Mike Nichols' highly anticipated -- and thinly veiled -- homage to the Clinton presidential campaign recently hit theaters, and it's worth a look. While the first half is an immensely funny jab at the political campaigning process, and Travolta and Thompson do a bang-up job as Bill and Hilary, you could probably leave when Clinton's... er... Stanton's opponent has a heart attack. The unfortunate second half of Primary Colors gives us an overwrought morality play about political mudslinging, and adds unnecessarily to an already overlong film. Overall, it's definitely worth a look, but don't expect any great insights into the workings of the system... or the workings of Clinton's mind.

Instinct Review


OK
Hannibal Lecter, meet Tarzan, Lord of the Apes.

Sad but true, that's all it takes to boil down Instinct, a curious blend of thriller and feel-good prison movie that manages to somehow be neither.

Scotland, PA Review


Excellent
Fueled by gritty Bad Company songs, enough plaid to keep all residents of Alaska warm for winter, and Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap - Scotland, PA blasts onto the silver screen with the reckless intent of Patty Hearst during a bank robbery.

The last place I'd expect to see a Shakespearean adaptation of Macbeth to occur would be in a backwater town in the middle of Pennsylvania circa 1972. But it provides a dark and menacing backdrop to this loose - and do I mean loose - adaptation of Shakespeare's ever-popular tragedy of a incompetent husband and power-hungry wife weaving murderously toward power and riches.
