Interstellar Trailer


Mankind is doomed. Following generations of neglect and a lack of care, the planet Earth is a polluted mess and food supplies have all but run out. Only one hope remains for humanity if it is to survive into its next generation - they must leave Earth behind. Cooper (Matthew Mcconaughey), is a widowed engineer, living in a time where engineers are no longer needed. He also happens to be one of the world's best pilots. He is offered the choice to stay with his children and except the fate of the human race, or captain a mission through a newly discovered wormhole in search of a new, habitable planet which can sustain the prolonged existence of our species. He chooses the latter option, and begins his interstellar travels in search of a new home.

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place Trailer


Billy Joe is a Texan teen who earns his living on a cotton farm. It's only a matter of weeks before his best friends Sue and Bobby leave the town to attend college but Billy Joe wants to give them one last weekend to remember on a Corpus Christi party bender. Strapped for cash, he foolishly robs a stack of cash from the safe in the office of his ruthless boss Giff, but the next time he sees him, he's beating the almighty hell out of one of the Mexican workers accusing him of being the thief. Billy is forced to come clean, but immediately puts his and his friends' lives at risk. The only thing they can do to save themselves is embark on a reckless mission to rob some local money-launderers in order to pay back the money, because if they don't, they'll have a furious gangster named Big Red to answer to.

McCabe & Mrs. Miller Review


Good
Robert Altman's only Western takes a long time to get heated up, but in its final hour it truly burns. As John McCabe, Warren Beatty is terrific as a hustler who's built a reputation for himself as a gunslinging tough guy, though secretly he's really a coward who's never killed anyone. After opening a smash-hit brothel in a wintry village, a big cartel swoops in to buy him out. He refuses, and a price is quickly put upon his head.

Poor White Trash Review


Excellent
What is it about semi-rural America that makes it so ripe for satirizing American values? It's a longstanding tradition of mockery, from the Coen brothers' Raising Arizona to Lynch's psychotic Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks, to, finally, Michael Addis' Poor White Trash.

Poor White Trash concerns Michael Bronco (Tony Denman), a small-town boy who wants nothing more than to be a psychologist. He spends his evenings talking about how his divorced mother's (Sean Young) anger towards her ex is a shield for her fear of abandonment, and spends his days raisin' hell with Ron Lake (William Devane). One day, the hell raisin' goes a little too far and the two find themselves in court, where they are convicted but get a suspended sentence due to the handiwork of the sleazy Lennie Lake (Jacob Tierney), a gold-toothed hick of a lawyer with a beer-can garden (you really have to witness this bizarre sight to believe it). Thinking that all is fine, the group goes off to celebrate, only to find out that Michael can't get into college now that he's been convicted of a crime.

The Badge Review


Weak
Billy Bob channels Billy Bob, his Monster's Ball persona, that is, in this southern cop/tranny/stripper/murder/politico drama that's barely watchable for much more than half an hour at a time. Robby Henson is earnest, earnest, in his attempt to make the movie edgy (Patricia Arquette married a transsexual!!!), but he kills any chance at real intrigue with his slow-as-molasses pace and his laughable plot points, bad dialogue, and worse acting. My only question is what Starz! saw in the movie, aside from the names of its lead actors.

Space Cowboys Review


OK

When septuagenarian astronaut John Glenn returned to space two years ago, phones probably started ringing all over Hollywood with pitches for the kind of high-concept audience-pleaser launched this week as "Space Cowboys."

Somebody was bound to write a connect-the-dots orbital adventure script about, say, a foursome of former test pilots who, 40 years after being passed over for the space program, are NASA's only hope to rescue the Earth from a dangerous satellite in a decaying orbit.

"Grumpy Old Men In Space" people would call it, and in the hands of 90 percent of the directors in Hollywood, that's all it might have been -- even if they got, say Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland to play the crotchety, never-grow-up team of rocket boy retirees.

The Hollow Man Review


Terrible

As a movie critic, nothing is more frustrating than watching a film like "Hollow Man," a film ripe with potential that succumbs completely to trite and tepid Hollywood convention.

A slick, initially disquieting but ultimately silly update of the invisible man scenario, re-envisioned for a CGI world, "Hollow Man" stars Kevin Bacon as a mad scientist for the new millennium -- an egoist with an aggressive sex drive, few ethics and a burgeoning God complex that stems from his groundbreaking successes in DNA manipulation.

Having already cracked the mystery of invisibility with experiments on dogs and apes, Bacon opens the picture in his top secret, super-hero-style underground lab as he and his team of researchers struggle with perfecting a formula designed to bring test subjects back from transparency.
