Wild Things 3 Review


Terrible
I have no real recollection of seeing Wild Things 2, but apparently I did, and reviewed it, in March 2004. I can't imagine it was any different at all from the increasingly unlikely and repetitive Wild Things 3, which, again, is another near remake of the original Neve-and-Denise sex romp. As in part two (at least per my notes), again we have teenagers in high school, bi-curious, trying to get their hands on a massively valuable pair of diamonds.

Deterrence Review


Excellent
It would be easy -- almost mandatory -- to dismiss Deterrence as a ridiculous piece of late night paranoia (Plot: The president (played by Kevin Pollak!?) is stuck in a Colorado diner during a blizzard, where he finds himself entering a nuclear war with Iraq over a new invasion into Kuwait, by Saddam Hussein's son!). Well, it's a ballsy plot, to say the least. And in fact, it's quite gripping, and I'd be hard-pressed to script a better film given the basic scenario described above. Sure, former film critic Rod Lurie (The Contender) hamstrings himself with a low budget, a single location (a la Albino Alligator), and a crummy film editing job, but considering the obstacles, Deterrence is quite a ride.
