Jericho: Season One Review


Excellent
Jericho certainly didn't go wanting for ambition. Episode one drops nuclear bombs on U.S. soil, stranding the members of the Kansas town of Jericho in darkness and confusion, fearing for nuclear winter and oblivious to what's just happened. Over the next 21 episodes -- some of which are exceptionally taut -- we'll find out, for the most part.

The early episodes pan out exactly like you'd expect: What would happen if a bomb obliterated a nearby town, cutting off communications and sending a radioactive raincloud your way? Residents dust out the bomb shelters, prepare for the worst, and deal with human nature: Looting, man vs. man, and the question of whether those who are away will ever return.

The Newton Boys Review


Good
Soon after we walked into the theater on opening night of The Newton Boys, I feared we had made a mistake. It seemed that the Leonardo's fan club had gotten lost, and instead of marching like lemmings into another screening of Titanic, these pre-ten girls had packed themselves into our cozy theater. The cries of "Oh baby" as soon as Matthew McConaughey appeared on screen, however, made me realize that they were simply looking for another cute young guy (or four) to gawk at.

The four young guys that our lovable preteens came to gawk at are McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Skeet Ulrich, and Vincent D'Onofrio as Willis, Jess, Joe, and Dock Newton respectively. The Newton boys are you're stereotypical cowboys turned bank robbers who have decided that a home on the range isn't enough for them.

Chill Factor Review


Unbearable
When will the Hollywood moguls learn? I'll admit that we liked Speed way back in 1994 despite atrocious acting and a bogus plot. But all the money and success that movie earned seems to have given the wrong impression to the big wigs at the major studios. "Action-film-overkill," as I like to call it, has long since destroyed much of the innovation that came from Speed's once exciting premise. We're on the verge of a new millennium here. I only hope that it's going to take a little more creativity to keep us on the edge of our seats than a recycled plot, two stars, and some explosions.

Instead of a rigged bus that must stay above 55 mph, Chill Factor introduces a chemical weapon so powerful that it can destroy a third of the country's population--- but only if it's temperature rises above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Soul Assassin Review


Grim
Soul Assassin? No, it's not a new kung fu video game, it's a thriller with Skeet Ulrich in the lead. Yes, Skeet Ulrich is still working, and he's alongside Kristy Swanson in this impossible-to-explain business/corruption/espionage/vengeance movie. Virtually the entire movie is shot in wierd blue mood lighting, with flashbacks, jump-cuts, and a gaggle of characters to follow. Not entirely worth the effort.

Track Down Review


Grim
For this film review, we begin with a history lesson. Kevin Mitnick stands as probably the most famous, the most notorious, and the most successful computer hacker of all time. After nearly 15 years of hacking (alternating with jail and probation time), he was finally apprehended for the last time in 1995, for a collection of tech crimes. and was released from prison in early 2000. (The story of his questionably legal incarceration is itself enough material for a book and a movie.) I interviewed Mitnick shortly after his release; today he's a computer security consultant (though he's not allowed to touch a computer as a term of his release).

Track Downwas produced shortly before Mitnick's release amid much controversy. Mitnick, as you might expect, is a cause celebre among the hacker community, while he's been vilified by the corporate and legal communities. The story of his long career as a hacker was the subject of two major books -- The Fugitive Game, written mainly from Mitnick's point of view, and Takedown, written by the man who captured him. The latter book (widely dismissed by the hacker community as propaganda) got optioned by Miramax, and against all odds, the Kevin Mitnick story became a movie, starring Skeet Ulrich as Mitnick and Russell Wong as Tsutomu Shimomura, the man who "captured" Mitnick and the co-author of Takedown.

Albino Alligator Review


Good
One of a growing list of recent directorial debuts by actors, Albino Alligator is Kevin Spacey's (Best Supporting Actor winner from The Usual Suspects) baby, and his film is probably the best of the lot. Because with this movie, Spacey proves that he can work just as well on either side of the camera.

A "box drama" of classic design, Albino Alligator is a psychological thriller set largely inside a New Orleans Prohibition-era bar still open in the 1990s. Dova (Matt Dillon), Milo (Gary Sinise), and Law (William Fichtner) are criminals on the run. After killing three cops with their car, the trio holes up in Dino's Last Chance Bar until things cool over, but the cops catch up with them soon enough. A game of cat-and-mouse hostage negotiation ensues, with Faye Dunaway, Viggo Mortensen, Skeet Ulrich, John Spencer, & M. Emmet Walsh as the victims, and Joe Mantegna as the head cop on the case.

Ride with the Devil Review


Excellent
Hands down, this is the best Civil War movie since Glory. Ride with the Devil is captivating from the opening scene and its eclectic cast is shockingly powerful. Don't worry about Jewel ruining anything; she convincingly makes the transition from pop star to actress, and Jeffrey Wright's (Basquiat, Celebrity) performance of a former slave fighting for the Confederacy is unprecedented and chillingly realistic. I have no clue what they were thinking with such a misleading title -- Ride with the Devil isn't some supernatural, special effects-laden, cheesy line-filled, end-of-the-millennium dud; it's a movie about a perspective of American history rarely talked about in classrooms across the country. The plot sympathizes with the ideals of the Confederate bushwhackers fighting a guerilla-style war against the Union Jay Hawks- and to its credit; it almost makes you believe in their cause.

Our protagonist is Jake Roedel, (Tobey Maguire -- The Ice Storm) a young Missouri-raised son of a poor Dutch immigrant, and he along with his child hood buddy Jack Bull Chiles, the son of a Missouri plantation owner, (Skeet Ulrich -- As Good As It Gets, Chill Factor) join up as bushwhackers when their homes and families are seized by Union soldiers. They both become skilled gunmen and execute daring raids on Union soldiers and sympathizers. By 1862, their unit, headed by Black John (James Caviezel), includes George Clyde (Simon Baker) and Clyde's loyal former slave Daniel Holt (Jeffrey Wright). With a harsh winter looming, the Bushwhackers must disperse and find shelter. Several members hole up in a hidden hillside dugout. While in hiding, their food and supplies are provided by the young widow Sue Lee (Jewel). When casualties are taken from a Jay Hawk surprise attack the group is splintered and Jake and Holt are united as soldiers in solidarity. As the war rages on, most of their remaining Bushwhacker compatriots are either dead or lost on the Southern cause, so Jake and Holt must decide whether to keep the fight alive or flee west.

Nobody's Baby Review


Grim
"When two escaped cons find an orphaned baby, their lives go from the state pen to the playpen...."

Whoa whoa whoa, hold it right there. How does Gary Oldman get involved with a con+baby movie!? I guess if you promise to get the film into Sundance (where it was originally exhibited), anything goes these days.
