Lost: Season One Review


Weak
Agatha Christie wrote something in excess of 80 novels. Christie was a practiced and a brilliant mystery taleteller, a commercial writer who exploited her full and total grasp of the mystery genre to massive popular success. Each plot was intricately realized, no facet of the mystery introduced that could not be resolved. Such is the enjoyment of good mysteries: a confidence that although clues and complications have confused us for now, in the end the equation will make sense. We should not know the ending, but it should not be impossible to work out. Lost, 2004's hit about a group of plane-wreck survivors milling about on a mysterious island, crashes and burns on its inability to handle the genre Christie had mastered. Not so much a whodunit as a "whatisit," Lost never seems confident that it can provide the answers to the questions it asks.

Before triangulating the discombobulating mystery that anchors Lost's first 24 episodes, it is necessary to acknowledge the brilliance of the program's premise. An aircraft traveling from Sydney to L.A. crashes, and part of the plane lands on an island somewhere in the South Pacific. Several survivors emerge from the wreckage to take pole positions as the show's cast, and slowly but surely, as some semblance of society is established, we get flashbacks into their previous mainland lives. This design leads to situations such as this: Jack (Matthew Fox) is falling for Kate (Evangeline Lilly). However, as dramatic irony would have it, the viewers know that Kate was actually a gun-wielding fugitive in her pre-island life. Watch out, Jack! This conceit of letting the audience in on the characters' secrets while they mingle obliviously with each other is Lost's greatest power. Nevertheless, creator J.J. Abrams was not content with just that.

Rated X (2000) Review


OK
An interesting subject gets a rather shoddy treatment at the hands of Emilio Estevez. Here we have the story of porn pioneers the Mitchell brothers (who put together Behind the Green Door, launching the career of Marilyn Chambers) who fought the mob, opened the famed O'Farrell theater in San Francisco, and tried to kill each other. You'll have to see the movie to find out which one succeeded (or, you know, like, read about it somewhere else). Awfully reminiscent of The People vs. Larry Flynt. Based on the true story chronicled in the book X-Rated.

Hometown Legend Review


Weak
Proudly trumpeted on the box as being from the mind of the creator of the Left Behind series, Hometown Legend is 103 minutes of highschool football, interrupted only for some cheerleading and the obligatory love story, courtesy of Party of Fiver Lacey Chabert.

Think Varsity Blues without the edge. What's left? Well, tons of footage of football games intercut with scenes of football practice. Will the drifter with a heart of gold take the small-town school to the championship? Will the prissy cheerleader-type overcome her dislike/distrust for him so they can start a happy, God-fearing life together? Well, we wouldn't want to spoil things now, would we? (And to be honest, there is one twist: The team sucks pretty badly, so victory here becomes a matter of degree.)

American Outlaws Review


Bad
Not so long ago, men by the names of Peckinpah, Ford, Leone, and Eastwood made westerns. Real westerns. These were some of the best films of the twentieth century.

Those days are gone. Now we have crap like Wild Wild West to pass for the western. And that record is not improved with the unbearable tale of American Outlaws.

The Rocketeer Review


OK
The poor man's Indiana Jones, complete with Nazi subterfuge and heroine in distress. This paean to the cliffhangers of yore never really finds its footing, unfortunately. It's a rather tired story about a lost jet pack and the daredevil (Bill Campbell -- who hasn't had a starring role since) who finds it, and so on and so forth. Very straightforward, the mystery doesn't go very far and the love story (with Jennifer Connelly) is totally stillborn. The clever use of historical figures like Howard Hughes and W.C. Fields is really the film's only highlight.

American Outlaws Review


Weak

Fictionalizing and romanticizing the exploits of Old West outlaws has been a pastime of the entertainment industry since the day the James Gang robbed its first bank in 1866. From the pulpy serialized dime publications of the Old West itself to the rock'n'roll, brat pack Billy the Kid flick "Young Guns," horseback bandits have made for popular folk heroes.

It's a simple formula: Invent some noble cause that the outlaws are fighting for so they can be passed off as gallant, cast up-and-coming pretty boy actors in the leads, cast surly types as the law (and dress them in black), toss in a few gunfights riddled with hitchin' post clichés and a pretty lass to kiss just before the credits roll -- and voila! Instant Western.

"American Outlaws" is the slick Generation Y model from this blueprint, starring scruffy baby-face Colin Farrell ("Tigerland") as a Jesse James who robs banks to hurt Yankee railroad barons that done killed his maw when she wouldn't sell the family farm so they could lay down tracks.
