Red Tails Review


Good
An inspiring true story from American military history provides plenty of drama and adventure, even if the over-earnest approach makes it seem rather silly at times. If it weren't for the engaging cast and thrilling aerial combat sequences, the film would be hard to get through.

During WWII, black pilots trained in Tuskegee, Alabama, were sidelined in the segregated US forces. But Colonel Ballard (Howard) gets them an assignment accompanying bombers on raids in Italy. Led by Major Stance (Gooding), the team includes hot-shot Lightning (Oyelowo), self-doubting Easy (Parker), eager Junior (Wilds) and the even less-defined Smoky (Ne-Yo) and Joker (Kelley). As they square off against their Luftwaffe nemesis (van Riesen), the Tuskegee airmen's distinctive red-tailed planes develop a first-rate reputation that begins to break down racial barriers.

Virtual Sexuality Review


Good
Decidedly bizarre British sex comedy (sans sex) about a girl who cooks up her dream man in a virtual reality game, only to find him come to life. Quirky yet not very filling due to the plethora of stereotyped characters and hokey plotting. Note for those seeking titillation: very little nudity.

Charlotte Gray Review


Weak

Director Gillian Armstrong has a talent for visual imagery, and she makes a powerful impression with the opening shot of "Charlotte Gray" -- a field full of bright purple flowers, blurring past the window of a train car. All by itself this image evokes an emotional reaction that primes the senses for what should be a powerful melodrama about war and love.

But the story that follows -- about a Scottish woman who becomes a World War II espionage courier in the hopes of finding a pilot boyfriend shot down over France -- is so prosaic and tainted with narrative missteps that it feels black-and-white compared to that almost magical title sequence.

The always-captivating Cate Blanchett stars in the title role, reuniting with Armstrong, who directed her breakthrough performance in the vibrant, unconventional period romantic tragedy "Oscar and Lucinda" in 1997. But lightning doesn't strike twice, and for the first time in her career Blanchett's potency seems watered down in a role that goes through the paces of being intense and passionate without actually inspiring any feelings.
