Veronica Mars Review


Good

Funded by fans, this follow-up to the cult TV show feels a lot like an extended reunion episode. But even those unfamiliar with the series will enjoy the twisty plot and smart dialog, plus the sparky Kristen Bell in the title role. And while there are rather too many characters for a stand-alone movie, they all feed nicely into the central mystery.

After escaping from the run-down seaside town of Neptune, California, nine years ago, Veronica (Bell) has become a New York lawyer. But just as she's on the verge of landing her first proper job, an old friend is murdered back home, waking her investigatory instincts. The worst of it is that her ex Logan (Dohring) is the prime suspect, so Veronica heads home to help him clear his name. Her private eye dad (Colantoni) just rolls his eyes when she slips back into her old mystery-solving role, working with her pals Mac, Weevil and Wallace (Majorino, Capra and Daggs). But three other classmates - Gia, Cobb and Dick (Ritter, Starr and Hansen) - are also involved. And the fact that she keeps putting off her return to New York annoys her boyfriend Piz (Lowell).

The most refreshing thing about this film is the way filmmaker Thomas refuses to play by the usual rules. Bell may have been offered a dream job, but we fully understand why she's blowing it off to help her friends. And the whodunit plot is just intriguing enough to hold our interest: we don't really care who the villain really is, but it's fun to watch Veronica dig through the clues and challenge every level of authority. And the script gleefully stirs in red herrings, side-plots and lots of suspicious-looking characters.

Think Tank Review


OK
Think Tank itself tells us there's a thin line between "genius" and "stupid." You needn't look any further than this film, which seems to have gone straight to DVD, and which takes absurd plotting to an extreme, with generally pleasant, though hardly groundbreaking, results.

I hesitate to summarize the plot for fear you won't believe me, but here goes. Four childhood friends obsessed with science (in the loosest possible interpretation) remain pals into their 20s. Ultimately, they decide to use their talents to save their favorite pool hall, which is being threatened by a Vegas-style wannabe who goes by the moniker of Lord Billiards. Their big idea (which comes to one of the quartet after he is knocked unconscious and dreams of Tron) is to invent a game of "frictionless pool," which is played with competitors wearing jet packs. It's unclear how this is going to save anything, but nonetheless, there we go.

Veronica Mars: Season Three Review


Excellent
Though the rocky third season of Veronica Mars, the television adventures of the tough, vengeful daughter of a California PI, was not as universally acclaimed as its predecessors, it set out about demonstrating the oft-spouted theory that even the weakest episodes of a great show are preferable to the best episodes of, oh, let's say, anything on CBS.

Of course, it helps that season three of Veronica features a healthy portion of the show at its best, alongside the weaker. In previous years, Veronica would be working on a single over-arching case throughout the season, even as each episode brought a new mystery-of-the-week. This format was dropped in season three in an effort to bring a new audience to the ratings-challenged show. While these 20 episodes lack the long build and unity of purpose afforded to previous story arcs, the experiments with format -- shorter arcs at first, and then "stand-alone" episodes which are nonetheless rich in both story and character development -- reveal Veronica Mars as a sturdy enterprise, entertainment value intact across structural changes.

Napoleon Dynamite Review


Excellent
If one had to find a problem with teenage underdog movies, one of the most prominent ones would have to be that they always seem to want audiences to feel sympathy for the plight of their sad protagonists. In Napoleon Dynamite, even though the hero of the title (Jon Heder) is a four-eyed teenage misfit with no social skills and a truly frightening haircut - and he couldn't care less. Napoleon Dynamite is confident about his ability to draw fantasy characters in the pages of his Trapper Keeper ("I'm pretty much the best at it") and isn't afraid to voice his approval when something goes his way ("Sweet!") or get pissy when somebody asks him what he's doing that day ("Whatever I feel like doing, gosh!"). He's a hero for the ages; it's just not entirely clear what age.

Napoleon Dynamite isn't much of a film, when you break it down outside the theater, when the cheers have died away and you're left with the nagging question: But what was it about? Napoleon attends high school in a small Idaho town, living with his much older but just as dweeby brother, Kip (Aaron Ruell) and his grandmother who, at the start of the film, has just landed herself in the hospital after a four-wheeler accident. This precipitates sleazoid Uncle Rico (Jon Gries), with his dreams of lost football glory and ideas about door-to-door sales, moving into the house to watch the boys and generally make them feel crappy about themselves. There's the barest hint of a storyline about Napoleon getting a crush on a girl from his class, Deb (Tina Majorino), but that's really only there to give him somebody to dance with at the prom. Slightly better is Napoleon's friendship with the nearly-mute Pedro (Efren Ramierez), the new kid in school, and the battle they wage against the cool clique in order to win Pedro the school presidency. Oh, and there's a big joke about tater tots - Election it ain't.

Napoleon Dynamite Review


OK

Seething with teen-angst irritability and an obstinate blind ignorance to just how much of an outcast he is, Napoleon Dynamite may be the biggest dork in the history of high school movies.

Completely lacking in social graces, the lanky, slack-jawed, sleepy-eyed, bed-headed and shoulder-hunched titular anti-hero of this off-kilter comedy (played with unabashed geek gusto by newcomer Jon Heder) can't even manage to speak to a girl without putting his foot in his mouth. But it isn't nerves that bring him down -- it's nerve, as in "you've got a lot of nerve, pal."

"I see your drinking one-percent milk. Is that 'cause you think you're fat?" is his idea of an opening line to a very disinterested girl in the cafeteria of his lifelessly rural-edge-of-suburbia Idaho high school. "You're not. You could be drinking whole."
