Suburban Girl Review


Grim
I'll be honest. The only reason I am bothering to write this review is to complain: Why would you take a pretty cool title like The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing and sub in a generic, borderline-lame one like Suburban Girl? I mean, there's not even anything remotely cool about the suburbs. Why would I want to watch a movie about a girl from them?

Well, you wouldn't, which is why Suburban Girl went straight to video, despite starring megawatt powers Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alec Baldwin. Gellar is Brett Eisenberg, the Suburban Girl of the title, though she lives and works in Manhattan as that age-old vocation of many a rom-com: book editor. Her exploits include a new boss (she's mean!) and a new lover (he's old!), played by Baldwin. Writer/director Marc Klein relies on two stories from Girls' Guide to intertwine her dealings with both: Old man Archie gives Brett career advice, then gets drunk and cheats on her. Almost as an aside, Brett's dad gets sick and dies. That's pretty much the

The Polar Express Review


Grim
The first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes of Robert Zemeckis' digital banquet The Polar Express draw inspiration from Chris Van Allsburg's wonderful Christmas novel of the same name. Beginning with the late-night arrival of the pinch-me-I'm-dreaming locomotive and ending with the narrator's ringing of a symbolic bell, these whimsical bookend scenes find the perfect holiday ambiance that wraps us in a cozy blanket of adolescent wonder.

Bridging the film's beautiful opening and closing, though, are 77 minutes of exhaustive, roller coaster-worthy action sequences, death-defying skids across frozen lakes and approximately 15 harrowing occasions where the beloved Polar Express is inches away from jumping its tracks and killing everybody on board. It's Van Allsburg by way of Arnold Schwarzenegger, and it just doesn't fit the initial warm-and-fuzzy mood.

The Polar Express Review


Weak

One thing is clear from Hollywood's latest attempt at generating photo-realistic human characters through computer animation: The technology has not reached a level at which it can capture the awe of a child. This is a fundamental problem for "The Polar Express," which tries very hard to be an instant-classic Christmas movie.

The glitch is in the eyes -- there's just no life behind them. In this picture, they're pixel-driven doll orbs without personality or presence. And CGI animators still can't seem to create a blink that doesn't look animatronic. It's enough of a distraction that anyone over the age of 10 or 12 will likely wonder why director Robert Zemeckis (who dabbled in animation with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit") didn't shoot the film live-action -- unless he just wanted to show off, as he clearly did when CGI-ing President Clinton into several scenes in 1997's "Contact" for no good reason.

But in spirit, "The Polar Express" comes very close to embodying the magic of the holiday it's supposed to celebrate -- if you can get past several more Zemeckis-isms.
