Noise (2007, U.S.) Review


OK
I hate car alarms as much as the next guy, but make a feature film -- with Tim Robbins and William Hurt -- as a thinly-veiled diatribe against noise pollution? That's about as obsessive as it gets.

Noise offers Robbins as David Owen, a supernaturally angry New Yorker who eventually snaps after one too many car alarms distrub his piece and quiet. Rather than, say, move out of Manhattan, Owen takes a hammer, baseball bat, wire cutters, and whatever else is handy to demolish cars that ring out for no reason. Later he moves on to wayward building alarms (apparently a problem in New York). Soon he's running an organized, mapped-out campaign as "The Rectifier," disabling vehicles and cutting their battery wires across the city, leaving behind a sticker as a calling card.

Backdraft Review


OK
I got in enough trouble as a kid to learn firsthand that fire is cool.

That said, even the wicked fire shots of Backdraft -- which feature rising towers of flame, backwards-flowing fire, and blankets of flame that slowly ripple across the floor -- are barely able to distract you from the ultimately tiresome family drama that makes up the bulk of Ron Howard's firehouse epic.

Sliver Review


Grim
New Yorkers obsess over real estate, and they're quick to notice when interesting apartments feature prominently in movies, especially thrillers. There's a direct line that runs from Rosemary's Baby (fabulous pre-war woodwork!) through Single White Female (so much square footage on the Upper West Side!) to Sliver (small rooms but a remarkably advanced video surveillance system). Come to think of it, Sliver was originally written as a novel by Rosemary's Baby author Ira Levin.

His writing partner was the gleefully vulgar Joe Eszterhas, who clearly timed this dirty little movie to cash in on the post-Basic Instinct Sharon Stone's newly notorious nether regions (and reissued on DVD to cash in on Basic Instinct 2). A credible actress (see Casino), Stone has always seemed willing to sabotage her own reputation by pandering to our, um, basic instincts, especially when the heavy-breathing Eszterhas is pulling the strings. Remember, this is the guy who wrote Showgirls.

You Stupid Man Review


Grim
You Stupid Man. Well that's a title that is going to make people rush to Blockbuster. What sounds like a sex comedy (a sultry Denise Richards on the cover doesn't help) turns out to be a semisweet, if goofy, romantic comedy, albeit a nerdy David Krumholtz and a blank-slate Milla Jovovich don't exactly make for cinema's most energetic couple.

Krumholtz starts the film with Richards, an up-and-coming actress who's soon in New York as a headliner on a new sitcom. Soon she's having an affair, gets busted, and sends poor Davie home alone.

Double Bang Review


Weak
It's double the Baldwins and Double the Bang in this insanely great direct-to-video flick!

Er, well, would you believe it's not that bad? Now that your expectations are appropriately middling, you might be able to appreciate Double Bang, a reasonably entertaining cop drama about an NYPD officer (William Baldwin) who gets all upset when he crooked partner (Adam Baldwin) ends up dead. Billy heads out on a vigilante mission, interrogating the usual suspects and dishing out his own brand of justice by turning the bad guys against their own.

Say Nothing Review


Grim
Unfaithful probably stole Say Nothing's thunder, whatever thunder it might have had, that is, sending this movie straight to Skinemax or whatever other dumping ground it ended up in.

The story has become awfully familiar: Disgruntled woman (Nastassja Kinski) cheats on boozing hubby (Hart Bochner), only she doesn't realize her fling (William Baldwin) is actually a super-wealthy tycoon. No problem, except that said tycoon inexplicably hires the out-of-luck (and suddenly reformed) hubby shortly thereafter and immediately sets out to destroy the marriage he's wedged himself into. Trouble ensues.

The Squid And The Whale Review


Excellent
One feels pretty easy predicting at the start of Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale - after a scene in which a family of four plays tennis and the father keeps hitting the ball so hard that the mother finally gives up in disgust - that divorce is not far away. Note to husbands: Do not try to hit spouse with tennis ball. Be especially wary of said aggressive behavior if that spouse is Laura Linney.

It's Park Slope, Brooklyn, circa 1986, and the Berkman family is splitting up at the mid-swing of the pendulum of the adults' professional lives. On the downswing is the father, Bernard (Jeff Daniels), a professor and once-celebrated writer. Linney plays the mother, Joan, a blossoming writer coming out from under Bernard's shadow. He's been distant and awful, she's had affairs and been generally resentful, so now Bernard is moving to a falling-down house on the far side of Prospect Park while she gets to keep the gorgeous brownstone. The kids, of course, get screwed, with split custody keeping them in one house for half the week and the other house for the rest. Ensuring that things will stay nice and dysfunctional, the kids choose sides, with teenaged Walt (Jesse Eisenberg) sticking with Bernard and even picking up his mannerisms, while younger Frank (Owen Kline) throws in with Joan.

Virus Review


Unbearable
Or, how many cliches can one film incorporate or steal from other movies? Energy from outer space is evil and wants to destroy humanity (hint: WE are the virus). Computer builds half-man/half-machines out of spare parts, a la Star Trek's Borg. Or how stupid can a movie actually be? Witness Donald Sutherland's ridiculous accent. And what is Donnie's job? He's piloting a tugboat which is towing a giant barge across the ocean! If Virus wasn't so ridiculously awful it would be funny. As it is, it's derivative, boring, and stupid -- and it vies for one of the worst films of the year. Need I include the disclaimer, "Based on a comic book..."

Shattered Image Review


Grim
Oh, so it's a Baldwin movie. Billy Baldwin. How did classy actress Anne Parillaud get mixed up with this, billed as a "Hitchcockian thriller," about a woman who is haunted by dreams of another life as a hit-woman? We'll probably never know, and after an hour or so of trying to figure out the convoluted plot you'll probably stop caring.
