Agent 1 and Agent 2 are CIA Operatives who are also the best of friends who don't keep anything from each other. While at work one day, both agents tell each other about their respective girlfriends. When they express an interest in seeing what their girlfriends look like, they quickly turn their laptops around to show each other - but to their horror, their girlfriends turn out to be the same girl!

The Three Musketeers Trailer


D'Artagnan has always dreamt of becoming a Musketeer but being too young he's never been able to leave his home town of Gascony and make the trip to Paris. Now a little older and less naive he travels to Paris where, through a rather unusual scenario, befriends three seasoned and well respected Musketeers named Athos, Porthos, and Aramis.

The Red Baron [Der Rote Baron] Review


OK
This is an ambitious attempt to tell the story of World War I's most notorious fighter pilot. But while the events are truly momentous, with thrillingly rendered aerial combat, the film is let down by lacklustre writing and direction.

By 1916, 23-year-old Baron Manfred von Richthofen (Schweighofer) has become the most feared German pilot. With his lurid red plane, he has no interest in catching the Allied forces by surprise: he wants to scare them. But he's also a gentleman, engaging in sport and refusing to be cruel. He's also a strong leader to his fellow pilots, including best pal Voss (Schweiger) and little brother Lothar (Buch). And even Allied pilots like the Canadian Roy Brown (Fiennes) respect him.

Inglourious Basterds Review


Extraordinary
Finally turning his hand to the war-movie genre, Tarantino unsurprisingly pays homage to classic B-movies. And even though it's long and indulgent, this is a deeply entertaining romp, crafted to perfection by Tarantino and his amazing cast.

German Col Landa (Waltz) is notorious in Nazi-occupied France as a "Jew hunter", but the young Shosanna (Laurent) has slipped through his fingers.

Years later, she's running a Paris cinema and planning outrageous revenge against the Nazi high command who will be attending a premiere starring a famed war hero (Bruhl). Meanwhile, American Lt Aldo Raine (Pitt) has challenged his team of Jewish commandos to bring home 100 Nazi scalps each. And their operation is about to converge on Shosanna's cinema, thanks to a German actress double-agent (Kruger) and a British spy (Fassbender).

What To Do In Case Of Fire? Review


Very Good
Kind of cute, this German flick asks what happens when anarchists grow up (and of course, if there's a fire). The fire this time is a bomb placed 15 years ago that never went off, until now. Now our heroes -- all adults and long since gone corporate -- have to retrieve a critical bit of evidence before the cops close in. Interesting and often fun, but it's a little over-earnest.

Joe And Max Review


Very Good
A very capable film, Joe and Max explores the odd relationship between America's "brown bomber" Joe Louis and Nazi Germany's greatest fighter, Max Schmeling, on the eve of WWII. Til Schweiger was born to play the role of Schmeling, and the film is at its best when it focuses on the reluctant Nazi's torment at the hands of Hitler and his cronies. Louis's life gets a less thorough treatment, probably because it's a bit less dramatic, but either way I learned a lot about both fighters -- and the countries they represented.

Driven Review


Good
What better way to start an action movie than with... statistics!

From that rousing introduction we are thrown into the world of Driven, the highly anticipated CART-inspired movie that takes us on a whirlwind tour of made-up races.

The Replacement Killers Review


Good
Antoine Fuqua tries to blend Hong Kong action fare with gritty urban sensibilities in The Replacement Killers, to mixed effect. Surprisingly, Mira Sorvino holds her own as an unlikely action star, and the shots of her ass don't hurt matters.

Judas Kiss Review


Good
Intrigue and sexiness mix together in Judas Kiss, just not very well. Carla Gugino, Gil Bellows, Simon Baker, and Til Schweiger make an unlikely band of scam artists-cum-kidnappers, but it's cop partners Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson (both with outrageously bad New Orleans accents) that really make you wonder who the hell cast this thing. Tons of stars, including Hal Holbrook in an exceptionally over-the-top role, make this movie fun but unspectacular.

S.L.C. Punk! Review


Excellent
Ah, to be a young anarchist in 1985... in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Using the most conservative city in America as a backdrop for the American punk movement proves to be nothing short of brilliance in S.L.C. Punk! This little gem features the always-engaging Matthew Lilliard as "Stevo," a blue-haired college grad in the Reagan years who rages against the machine, his parents, his enemies, and -- of course -- Utah.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life Review


Weak
What is it about archaeology that makes us want to go to the movies? Is it the magic of being able to breathe life into ancient legends, like the riddle of the Sphinx and the lost city of Atlantis? Is it the illusion of uncovering the secrets behind grand and mystical artifacts, like the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail? Or is it simply the white bodysuit that fits Angelina Jolie so tightly that you can't possibly avoid looking at her nipples?

If you chose the latter, you'll definitely want to arrive on time to see Tomb Raider sequel Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, for the first twenty minutes are packed with plenty to gawk at. There's Jolie -- er, Croft -- riding in on a jet ski wearing a black sports bra and soaking wet shorts. There's Croft climbing aboard a ship as seductively as possible while two deckhands watch greedily. There's Croft appearing on deck in the all-too-critical bodysuit, ready to dive into the water and fight a shark one-on-one. And there's even Croft doing some unnecessary splits in mid-air as she rolls her way toward the mysterious "orb" -- an object that soon becomes the focus of the movie due to the fact that it holds the map to the legendary Pandora's box.

King Arthur Review


Bad

According to the studio advertising campaign, the 2004 mega-budget version of "King Arthur" is "the untold true story that inspired the legend" -- you know, the factual version in which Arthur is a brooding bore, Lancelot has hip, runway-model facial hair and Guinevere is a half-naked post-feminist warrior hottie.

Borrowing superficially from recent theories about Camelot's origins only as a jumping off point -- producer Jerry "Armageddon" Bruckheimer cares about cool explosions and box office receipts, not historical accuracy -- this commercialized concoction draws its regal hero (played by rising star Clive Owen) as an idealistic, half-Anglo high commander in the Roman army, which is in the midst of abandoning Britannia as a protectorate.

Arthur and his knights (Sarmatian soldiers reluctantly bound to imperial service) take it upon themselves to defend the now unguarded territory against invading hoards of barbarian Saxons from the north. But first they're sent on one last suicidal mission into Saxon territory to rescue a rich Roman family living there for no explored reason.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life Review


Weak

Having apparently learned nothing from the first "Tomb Raider" movie, in this sequel, subtitled "The Cradle of Life," videogame-spawned pneumatic archeologist/adventuress Lara Croft makes another stupid, fundamental mistake with another dangerous antediluvian object that could result in the end of the world as we know it.

In the 2001 movie, two halves of an ancient-treasure time machine were being sought by leathery bad guys with evil ambitions. Croft (Angelina Jolie) gets her hands on one half in the third reel, and if she'd just had the common sense to destroy it, the threat -- and the movie -- would have been over in less than an hour.

This time around she recovers a golden orb that projects a holographic map to the hiding place of Pandora's Box -- yes, the one in the Greek myth that released all pain, suffering and evil into the world -- from a run-of-the-mill billionaire-scientist villain (Ciaran Hinds) who plans to create an unstoppable biological weapon using the box's contents and auction it off to the highest-bidding rogue state or terrorist. (Nevermind that the terrorists plan to create a viral apocalypse that will destroy civilization, thus rendering all his money worthless.)

Driven Review


Weak

The spirits of moderately better racing movies like "Grand Prix" and "Days of Thunder" are buried somewhere inside "Driven" -- buried under heaps of clichés, stock characters, video game gimmickry, overly elaborate Ginsu editing, moronically contrived filler sequences, inadequate special effects and about four minutes of plot.

Set in the wound-up world of open-wheel racing, those four minutes go something like this: An irascible, crippled car owner (Burt Reynolds) hires a washed-up driver who once had a promising career (Sylvester Stallone) to help season an unfocused rookie boy-racer (Kip Pardue) so he can beat his rival (Til Schweiger), the reigning circuit champion.

Throw in a subplot in which Kip and Til (what's with these names?) vie for the affections of hottie-of-the-month (and former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model) Estella Warren and a few more sidelines about Sly's catty ex-wife (Gina Gershon) who married another racer (Cristian De La Fuente) and the pretty reporter (Stacy Edwards) he's dating now, and that pretty much takes care of everything except the racing.
