Movie reviews

“The Aviator” HHH Near-three-hour telling of the life of Howard Hughes, aviation pioneer, Hollywood mogul, and obsessive, with Leonardo DiCaprio growing into the role as he goes. Director Martin Scorsese is drunk on the lavish sets and costumes, and the scenes are well-made, but the movie is more of a good subject than a good story. With Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn. (PG-13, for violence, language, nudity.)

“Be Cool” HH A sequel to “Get Shorty,” with former goombah Chili Palmer (John Travolta) now dabbling in the music business, which has even more danger than the movies. Some laughs are hustled by Vince Vaughn and The Rock, but the pacing and look are off, despite the busy cast. With Uma Thurman. (PG-13, for violence, language.)

“Because of Winn-Dixie” HHH Based on a best-selling children’s book, this one tells of a ten-year-old girl who befriends a dog and gets to know her new town. A nice cast and drowsy southern location redeems some of the stock material in this movie, and Dave Matthews sings a bit. (PG, for subject matter.)

“Born Into Brothels” HHHH Heartbreaking documentary about children of prostitutes in Calcutta. Photographer and co-director Zana Briski teaches them photography, encouraging their talent and interest in something more in life. (In Bengali and English, with English subtitles.) (R, for language, subject matter.)

“Bride and Prejudice” HH A touch of Bollywood comes to Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” as a wealthy Westerner journeys to India and meets a marriageable woman; they immediately clash. Dance numbers break up the breezy plot, but the absence of chemistry hurts the movie. (PG-13, for language.)

“Constantine” HH A cleverly made but somehow less than engaging comic-book epic, with Keanu Reeves as a demon-slayer fending off the apocalypse. Rachel Weisz co-stars. (R, for violence, subject matter.)

“Dear Frankie” HHHH A genuinely heartwarming film from Scotland, about a mother’s ruse to make her deaf son believe his father still cares for him. Fine acting by Emily Mortimer and Gerard Butler, and a sense of restraint, make this one triumph over its lapses in believability. (PG-13, for subject matter.)

“Diary of a Mad Black Woman ” HH A wildly uneven but often helplessly funny dramedy of a housewife (Kimberly Elise) dumped by her wealthy husband and returning to her roots. Writer Tyler Perry is uproarious (in drag) as the advice-giving Madea, a loud grandmother type. (PG-13, for subject matter.)

“Downfall” HHH This Oscar-nominated German film looks at the last ten days of Hitler’s life (as well as the people around him), in a blunt but engrossing way. Bruno Ganz gives a strong performance that never suggests Hitler is anything other than a psychopath. (In German, with English subtitles.) (R, for violence, subject matter.)

“Finding Neverland” HHH Fictionalized story of J.M. Barrie (Johnny Depp), and how he might have come to write “Peter Pan” after befriending a family of boys and their lonely mother (Kate Winslet). A bit too literal in its life-into-art ideas, but the movie will definitely bring on the sniffles. (PG, for subject matter.)

“Gunner Palace” HHH Ground-level documentary with troops in Baghdad, where director Michael Tucker spent 60 days in 2003-04. No overt politics, but a strong sense of the dangers that remain for soldiers and civilians. (R, for language, violence.)

“Hitch” HH Will Smith is smooth as silk in this amusing romance, playing a date doctor for lovelorn men in Manhattan. The movie labors too hard on its plot contrivances, but the cast makes it easy enough to like. With Eva Mendes. (PG-13, for subject matter.)

“Hostage” HH Bruce Willis is the sheriff trying to save some kids held hostage by three punks in an isolated house, and at the same time fend off mysterious assassins-there’s a lot going on in this action flick, and all of it is presented in an overwrought style that quickly wears out. (R, for violence, language.)

“Hotel Rwanda” HHHH It makes its points somewhat bluntly, but what a story this movie has to tell: it’s based on the real-life experiences of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager in Rwanda, who in the 1994 massacres protected refugees in his building. Don Cheadle gives a heroic performance. (PG-13, for violence, language, subject matter.)

“House of Flying Daggers” HHH From director Zhang Yimou, a color-soaked story of love and action in the time of the Tang dynasty. It’s a sweet confection rather than a filling meal, but a fun exercise. (In Mandarin, with English subtitles.) (PG-13, for violence.)

“Ice Princess” HH Michelle Trachtenberg is a high-school bookworm who wants to forget Harvard and give her life over to ice skating. The movie does a lot to justify her decision, but it seems to come out of the 1950s. (G)

“The Incredibles” HHHH Terrific Pixar feature about a family of superheroes, who come out of forced retirement when needed. The action-movie element keeps it shy of the “Finding Nemo” benchmark, but it’s got wonderful characters and impeccable comic timing. (PG, for violence.)

“Melinda and Melinda” HHH Woody Allen presents parallel stories of a messed-up woman (an excellent Radha Mitchell) arriving in Manhattan-one story comic, one tragic. Allen seems more assured in the serious section (too many jokes fall flat), but the movie is engaging and folks such as Will Ferrell and Chloe Sevigny come through nicely. (PG-13, for subject matter.)

“Million Dollar Baby” HHHH A wise, patient, and extremely moving film about a boxing trainer (Clint Eastwood) who reluctantly tutors a young woman (Hilary Swank). Eastwood also directed, transforming the old-fashioned material into a wonderfully gentle tale. With Morgan Freeman. (PG-13, for violence, language.)

“Millions” HHH A seven-year-old discovers a bag of cash, and promptly decides to give it away to the poor-something his older brother quickly disagrees with. “Trainspotting” director Danny Boyle presents this tale in a zippy manner, making it entertaining if almost too slick. (PG, for subject matter.)

“Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous” HH FBI agent Sandra Bullock is transformed into a sophisticate, only to be called into action when Miss United States is kidnapped in Las Vegas. The tone of niceness, the lessons for young audiences, and some physical comedy add up to nothing very memorable. (PG-13, for violence, subject matter.)

“The Motorcycle Diaries” HHHH Before he became a world revolutionary, Che Guevara set out on an eight-month trip along the length of South America, with a buddy and a dubious motorcycle. This movie takes a somewhat romantic view of the journey, but it’s a great road movie and an absorbing character study. Directed by Walter Salles. (In Spanish, with English subtitles.) (R, for subject matter.)

“Nobody Knows” HHHH A beautiful look at a family of four kids abandoned by their mother in a Tokyo apartment-the oldest, a 12-year-old, must tend their needs as the months go by. Director Hirokazu Kore-eda captures the childhood imagination and a magical sense of time passing. (In Japanese, with English subtitles.) (PG-13, for subject matter.)

“The Pacifier” H Vin Diesel tries the family-comedy route for Disney, as a Navy SEAL assigned to baby-sit five kids for a couple of weeks. He shows no flair for comedy, and the movie’s implausibility stretches even the loose standards of a kiddie movie. (PG, for subject matter.)

“The Ring Two” HH Sequel to the 2002 hit (itself a remake of a Japanese horror smash), this installment picks up the Seattle mom (Naomi Watts) and son as they resettle in Astoria, but can’t escape the curse. Some scary moments from director Hideo Nakata, but this one runs out of ideas. (PG-13, for violence, subject matter.)

“Robots ” HH Computer animation powers this story of a young robot in the big city. Lots of chase scenes and celebrity voices (Ewan McGregor, Robin Williams, Halle Berry) don’t add up to real delight, as this one’s a little too close to video-game territory. (PG, for subject matter.)

“Sideways” HHHH Two old friends road-trip for a week in the Santa Barbara wine country, sampling vintages and meeting women. This melancholy comedy is full of keen observations, good wine talk, and some slapstick, and it’s beautifully acted by a cast led by Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church. (R, for language, nudity.)

“The Upside of Anger” HH Joan Allen has a juicy role in this tale of a suburban mother whose husband disappears. Kevin Costner is a little cutesy as her interested neighbor, and despite the comic moments the film is too pleased with itself. (R, for language, subject matter.)
