Buried Review


Weak
A high-concept premise with a fiendishly claustrophobic setting, this film at least has the courage of its own convictions. And Reynolds delivers a relentlessly effective performance. So it's a shame that it's not more involving than it is.

After being ambushed while working as a driver in Iraq, private contractor Paul (Reynolds) wakes up in the dark, and his lighter shows him that he's inside a coffin-shaped wooden box. There's also a mobile phone in there, and soon Paul is communicating with the kidnapper (Perez), who demands that he make a video plea for ransom. Paul also contacts both his company's emergency manager (Tobolowsky) and a government agent (Paterson) who promises to help. But time is running out as Paul uses up both the breathable air and his phone battery.

Mathis Turns Flower Therapy Into Hit Firm


Samantha Mathis Pump Up the Volume Meryl Streep

Nineties movie pin-up Samantha Mathis has launched an online florists, Succulent.la.com, with her partner RYANN DAVIS.
The Pump Up the Volume star, who quit Hollywood to mourn the death of her mother in 1996, admits she uses her flower arranging and pot planting skills as therapy.
She tells People magazine, "I lose myself when I'm planting and arranging."
Her new career has brought her back into Hollywood - Mathis' company was recently hired to arrange flowers for scenes in a Meryl Streep film.
The actress-turned-florist adds, "I worked on that arrangement for a long time."

The Punisher (2004) Review


Terrible
Over the course of two hours, the Punisher, Marvel Comics' black-clad antihero (played by Thomas Jane -- now rebranded as "Tom Jane") kills more people than cardiovascular disease. Bad guys get their head split in two, knives in the throat, and shot in all kinds of sensitive places. So, why will action junkies, like myself, feel like they've been duped? Read on.

The plot stars promisingly enough. Frank Castle (Jane, *61, The Sweetest Thing) is an FBI undercover agent, the kind of guy who's so good that the Bureau moves him around for his own protection. At his final job in Tampa, he busts up a major weapons deal that kills the son of powerful crime lord Howard Saint (poor, poor John Travolta).

The Thing Called Love Review


Weak
The routine story of four scrappy Nashville newcomers who hope to make it as country music stars, The Thing Called Love wouldn't hold much interest if it weren't for one important fact: a clearly deteriorating River Phoenix stars as one of the four, and this is the last film he completed before his 1993 death. Director Peter Bogdonavich was probably excited by the prospect of working with the gifted Phoenix, but the resulting film is a record of his struggle to get something -- anything -- out of the incapacitated star.

In reality, the movie centers not around Phoenix but around Miranda Presley (Samantha Mathis), who lets everyone know she's "no relation" to The King but has similar musical dreams. She meets up with southern beauty queen and songwriter wannabe Linda Lue (Sandra Bullock with a rather unfortunate southern accent) and the hunky Connecticut cowboy Kyle (Dermot Mulroney), whose instrument of choice, strangely enough, is the cello. They all hang around the Bluebird Café, which hosts Nashville's most promising open mike night, the place where aspiring songwriters come to show their stuff.

Attraction Review


Weak
They almost had me, but then they blew it. Attraction, a direct-to-video release that purports to turn the tables on the stalker movie, never quite makes it, despite a promising cast and an interesting twist.

As the story goes, Matthew (Matthew Settle) just can't get over his ex-girlfriend Liz (Gretchen Mol), which sees him drinking heavily and attempting to beat down Liz's door in the hopes of getting her back. (Never mind that Matthew's job is being a radio psychologist...) Fortunately, Liz's friend Corey (Samantha Mathis) enters his life, and maybe Matthew will be able to move on, right? Alas, he continues stalking Liz while he's banging her friend. And to throw another twist on you, Matthew's co-worker Garrett (Tom Everett Scott), decides he now loves Liz, and he's going to return the favor by stalking Matthew and Corey.

Broken Arrow Review


Good
Broken Arrow is the first really big-budget film of the year, and you can tell right from the start that all the money went into one thing: blowing up helicopters.

Classic action director John Woo, redeeming himself for making a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie (Hard Target) in 1992, proves himself capable in the Hollywood arena of big explosions with this stylish story. Broken Arrow is your (very) basic action/adventure featuring an air force pilot gone mad (John Travolta), the sidekick (Christian Slater) who tries to stop him from stealing two nuclear weapons (aka broken arrows) and holding a city hostage, and the really cute park ranger (Samantha Mathis) who teams up with him to save the world.

Little Women (1994) Review


Excellent
Hollywood did put out one decent flick over the 1994 holidays, and that was Little Women, another remake of Louisa May Alcott's famed novel. Winona Ryder steals the show, and most of the supporting cast are perfect. The story of Little Women is given a new breath of life with this film, and it is still as relevant about our place in the world and overcoming its man-made obstacles as it was when it was written. I mean, I'm like, you know, a guy... and I really dug the movie. Alvarado and Mathis shine above an altogether good cast (while Danes disappoints).

American Psycho Review


Good
From the opening scene, showing drops of blood on a pristine white surface, we know we're in for... well, not your ordinary slasher flick. Turns out the "blood" is a berry sauce being applied to a plate of haute cuisine. And the mind games of American Psycho have only just begun.

Steeped in controversy and mired in production for years, American Psycho tells the story of Anybroker Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a highest-society late 1980s Wall Street investment banker with a penchant for murder and a bloodlust that doesn't quit. Think of it as a portrait of Gordon Gecko as a young, homicidal man.

Drea, Heche And Kyra Strip For Allure


Drea de Matteo Anne Heche Kyra Sedgwick Kevin Bacon Joy Bryant Samantha Mathis Rose McGowan

THE SOPRANOS star Drea de Matteo, Anne Heche and Kyra Sedgwick have posed nude for a revealing new photo spread in American women's magazine ALLURE.

The actresses' genitals and breasts are carefully covered in the shots, which were tastefully snapped by MICHAEL THOMPSON for a celebrity female beauty special.

Sedgwick, who has never posed naked in front of anyone except her husband Kevin Bacon, loved the shots Thompson took of her.
