A Four Letter Word(1)

Truth in stereotypes?
At a certain point in its history, a movie genre achieves self-reflection, pondering the validity of its conventions before it sets forth toward self-parody.

Before the Rains

Son_of_Ranbow_list

Son of Rambow

A pint-sized Be Kind Rewind
Funnier than anything in this vaguely dark comedy is the thought of Stallone sitting through it.

Redbelt1_list

Redbelt

Pleasingly nuts
Not quite a neo-noir, still less a martial-arts movie, David Mamet’s taut, dank drama has a foot in each camp.

Mister Lonely

Weird meets revelatory unsuccessfully
Harmony Korine aspires to the weird and revelatory but too often achieves the merely creepy.

Speed_Racer1_list

Speed Racer

Another faulty family film
When Andy and Larry Wachowski pitched The Matrix to producer Joel Silver, they showed him the seminal anime Ghost in the Shell , claiming their ambition was to re-create it in live action.

Made_of_Honor1_list

Made of Honor

Scottish-related gags and other dumb stuff
Paul Weiland’s Made of Honor is not your usual formulaic romantic comedy: it’s stupid, its leading man is unlikable, and its jokes are unfunny and sometimes cruel.

Fugitive_Pieces1_list

Fugitive Places

An Aegean tear-jerker
Podeswa’s adaptation is so glossy and polished — the actors too good-looking, the cinematography too breathtaking, the stoic narration too majestic — that the menace of the Holocaust dissolves.

Iron Man

Robert Downey, Jr. saves the day

THEN-SHE-FOUND-MElist

Then She Found Me

Overplotted pregnancy flick
Helen Hunt bites off more than she can chomp on, choosing also to star in this her first try as a film director, a clumsy, overplotted rendition of Elinor Lipman’s 1990 novel.

Irina Palm

Marianne Faithful dispenses handjobs in this unrealistic romance

HAROLD-&-KUMARlist

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantánamo Bay

Too much melodrama
The tone shifts erratically, but not enough to blunt the appeal of a bottomless bikini party or Neil Patrick Harris downing ’shrooms and ravaging a whorehouse.

DECEPTIONlist

Deception

Unimaginative erotic thriller
Director Marcel Langenegger has a way with a nocturnal urban landscape, but his feature debut goes splat on the pavement.

Pathology

Total cheese for the CW set
