Tarzan & Jane Review


Bad
If you've seen Robert Smigel's "Bambi 2002" cartoon on Saturday Night Live, you pretty much know my feelings on direct-to-video Disney sequels. (The utterliy hilarious toon features a rapping Bambi, her injured-but-living mother, and a whole host of non-sequitur references to modern life.)

Tarzan & Jane isn't quite this commercially blatant, but there's not much to merit viewing this sequel to the popular Tarzan. The animation is rudimentary, the voices have all been replaced (the only notable one is Olivia d'Abo stepping in for Minnie Driver as Jane), and the soundtrack has returned to typical Disney orchestral music (though Phil Collins reprises a single song with Mandy Moore as accompaniment).

Written In Blood Review


Weak
Filmmaking lesson #1: When you have a reasonably big star in your movie, don't keep him locked up in a prison cell for the entire time. I mean, it worked for Hannibal Lecter, but Written in Blood is no Silence of the Lambs, though it would desperately like to be.

Peter Coyote is our hapless jailbird, a cop named John Traveller who's suspiciously jailed after murdering his wife and her lover. Or did he? Maybe he's taking the fall for someone else? No matter, there's another serial killer on the loose, and he's leaving clues behind, all references to Sherlock Holmes mysteries. That's right, we've got to deal with Sherlock Holmes as a plot device. This leaves troubled cop Matthew Ransom (Michael T. Weiss, the poor man's Andy Garcia) to try to figure out the case -- and Ransom seeks help from Traveller, a la Clarisse.

Bones Review


Weak
In this cheesy flick, rapper extraordinaire Snoop Dogg simply barks up the wrong tree. Snoop, who has previously tested the acting waters with his menacing persona in inner city dramas such as Training Day and Baby Boy, gets to strut his stuff in director Ernest Dickerson's garishly laughable thriller. Dickerson (Juice) wastes his star in a labored vehicle that is riddled with misguided camp and countless spook-infested clichés. Not enough to even deem this imbecilic fable a worthy copycat blaxploitation flick, there are sticks and stones that can certainly break the brittle Bones. No doubt the filmmakers behind this bloated hip-hoppish Halloween costume drama will draw its intended audience to see their "phat" Snoop Dogg do his thing. It's too bad he plays second fiddle to the ridiculous premise of this mockish movie.

Snoop Dogg portrays charismatic hood Jimmy Bones, a stylish late '70s dude with a cool demeanor to match his threads. Jimmy has always protected his community by looking out for his crime-ridden neighborhood. He possesses the cocky swagger of John Shaft and the street savvy of Superfly's Priest. We're told in flashback that Jimmy Bones refused to deal crack cocaine to his beloved people, and thus the crooked cops and thugs snuffed him out. But nobody betrays Jimmy Bones -- nobody! So he comes back from the dead.
