Extract Trailer


Joel Reynolds is a married businessman; his business Reynold's Extract is a failing flavouring company. When his soon to be floor manager is badly injured it's just the start of worse things to come. Constantly frustrated due to the lack of sex in his marriage and his worsening financial status he turns to Dean, his best friend who works as a barman who suggests a medicinal solution to his problems. Joel being the man that he is turns down Dean's offer and returns to work.

Beavis And Butt-Head Do America Review


Very Good
I realize, right from the start, that absolutely nothing I say about Beavis and Butt-Head Do America is going to sway you at all, one way or another, about whether or not to see the film.

Nevertheless, I'm going to comment, mainly out of habit.

Idiocracy Review


Extraordinary
Political correctness is an annoying term, and an even more annoying concept. At first it was supposedly bad to be "politically incorrect," then it was supposed to be good, then Bill Maher used it as the name of his lame, pseudo-political celebrity talk show, and it became meaningless.

But every once in a while... something that really is politically incorrect comes along, like Mike Judge's new comedy, Idiocracy. And instead of the self-congratulatory smugness of Maher's show (and other so-called satirists who pretend to be daring but are actually mainstream), there is only embarrassed silence, except for the sounds of corporate sponsors bailing and studio executives caving in.

South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut Review


Excellent
I'll say it up front: This is not your classic four-star review. South Park is definitely an acquired taste, but it's one I've picked up, despite the series' lackluster performance over this season.

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut certainly makes up for it, taking the comic adventures of four boys in the "redneck town" of South Park, Colorado to new highs, er, lows, in their feature debut.

Office Space Review


Excellent
Give Beavis and Butt-Head creator Mike Judge enough rope, and he may just hang himself. In his first live-action outing, Judge does a fair job at making sick jokes about corporate America, he just doesn't seem to make enough of them, ultimately leaving Office Space a bit flat.

Straight from Swingers, Ron Livingston makes a surprisingly good Everyman as Peter, so sick of his job ("In a week, I'd say I do 15 minutes of real work.") that he goes to a hypnotherapist for relaxation treatment. Of course (and the trailer doesn't tell you this), the therapist dies while Peter is under, leaving him in an ultra-relaxed state without a care in the world. (What's particularly funny is that Office Space was shot in high-tech ghetto north of my old hometown of Austin, Texas, where the "go-getter" attitude is severely frowned-upon.)

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over Review


Very Good
Companies have created a number of brain-numbing devices to milk the susceptible wallets of adolescents in recent years. From Playstation to GameCube to Xbox, it seems as if the companies are always releasing new video game systems, only pausing to develop new and improved systems. It's a wonder they haven't come up with a device that allows the gamers to enter the video game itself.

Now they have -- except the gamers will have to drop their controllers for a few hours to catch Spy Kids 3-D in order to experience it. This is the movie video gamers have been waiting for, designed specifically for short-attention spans -- it's loaded with stimulating effects, nonstop action sequences, and, best yet, a journey inside a very cool video game in 3-D! It goes without saying that Spy Kids 3-D might be the only movie this summer with enough charisma to get your kids to leave their consoles -- so take advantage of it.

Spy Kids 2: The Island Of Lost Dreams Review


OK
Robert Rodriguez is slowly losing his luster as a unique filmmaker. Since his ultra-low-budget El Mariachi became one of indie film's biggest successes, Rodriguez has created some masterful works such as Desperado and From Dusk to Dawn while delivering such monstrosities such as The Faculty (three words: Harry Knowles cameo) and one segment of the ungodly Four Rooms. Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams stands as Rodriguez's biggest disappointment in his sporadic career, a homogenous and formulaic attempt in continuing the exploits of master spy kids Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni (Daryl Sabara) Cortez in their pursuit of truth and justice before bedtime.

This time around, Carmen and Juni are in competition with a rival Spy Kids duo of Gary Giggles (Matthew O'Leary) and his sister Gerti (Emily Osment, sister of Haley Joel) for top assignments and duties. When Juni is falsely accused of failing to save an antimatter device from the hands of the evil Dr. Romero (Steve Buscemi) and his brood of magnetic men, he is fired from the Spy Kids network. Alas, his ingenious sister Carmen hacks his Spy Kid status and re-assigns them to the mysterious island home of Dr. Romero in pursuit of the antimatter device.

The Animation Show Review


Excellent
Animation fans in need of a pick-me-up in the wake of Sinbad's flop (and the subsequent return of small-minded chatter about non-computer animation being "dead") should check the web for the nearest showing of The Animation Show, a new traveling anthology of old and new animated shorts, in the spirit of Spike & Mike's Festival of Animation, now an institution. Actually, film fans disappointed by recent live-action offerings from studios and indies alike should go, too.

The Animation Show has been assembled by a pair of terrific animators: Mike Judge, creator of the sublime Beavis & Butt-Head and perennial underdog King of the Hill (yes, it's good!) and Don Hertzfeldt, who is less widely known but beloved by anyone who has seen one of the more recent editions of Spike & Mike. The idea is to collect the best new animation as well as lost gems, spanning time, genre, and form, and screen it in real live theaters, where short films have become an endangered species. The result, like any anthology, is somewhat hit-and-miss, but the cumulative effect is not only entertaining, but excitingly noble, if there is such a thing.

Spy Kids 3d: Game Over Review


Weak

Since the vast majority of the audience for "Spy Kid 3D: Game Over" has probably never seen a 3D movie with cheap, old-fashioned blue-and-red-lensed cardboard glasses, here's a three-point primer for proper enjoyment of any flick in this format:

1) Sit toward the middle of the theater. Because of the twin-image nature of 3D projection, the more off-center you are from the screen, the more you'll see eye-straining "ghosting" of images through your glasses instead of proper depth of field.

2) The left lens (red) always seems uncomfortably darker than the right (blue). Get used to it.
