Kalamazoo? Review


Weak
It's hard not to like the feel-good nature of Kalamazoo?, a comedy-drama about three girlfriends who return for their 10-year high school reunion. It's a comforting movie, one that lets you know that it's OK to be in your late 20s, have no clue as to who you are, and still change course.

I wish I could say it's a good movie, but an unspeakably lame concept pretty much grounds any hope of that. As the three friends visit and ultimately discover their limitations -- represented by the revealing of the school's time capsule, which holds everyone's then-future hopes -- the women are escorted by the spirits of their dead grandmothers (played by the motley crew of Chita Rivera, Renée Taylor, and Claire Bloom). Yes, you've read correctly. It's an unnecessary idea, stealing time away from the three friends' personal struggles, which is really the meat of the story. Seriously, if you took the grandmother subplot out, what would you lose?

Woman Thou Art Loosed Review


Weak
It can be extremely difficult to deal with such heavy issues as incest, ignored abuse, and redemption without allowing the topics to take over in lieu of connecting with the characters involved. And nobody wants to take issue with films about women climbing out of victimization because we all hate to see the wimp who screams instead of taking action. Nobody wants to be the person who watches a woman, or young innocent girl, go through a torturous experience and say that the screen time was wasted. But, unfortunately, I have to be that person.

Hopes were high walking into Woman Thou Art Loosed. Here were a male screenwriter and a male director tackling under-acknowledged issues, led by an actress with amazing talent, Kimberly Elise (Beloved). The film starts with a powerful revival scene in which Elise walks in, straining to hold back a multitude of emotions as she pulls out a gun and shoots, we know not at what or whom, but whatever happened landed her in jail confessing to the very Reverend who led the town meeting.

The Glass Shield Review


OK
At least it sounded like a good idea. Unfortunately, the execution of the new Miramax film, The Glass Shield, a drama set in an L.A. sheriff's station, leaves the viewer with little more than the perception that he's just seen a movie that could have been something, but didn't quite make it.

The Glass Shieldis the tragic tale of J.J. Johnson (Michael Boatman), a bright-eyed and idealistic black deputy-in-training who is "chosen" to join an all-white Los Angeles station for his first assignment. There, he encounters not-so-subtle racism and persecution which begins to crack his romanticism of the cop's life.
