Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs
Director: Peter Avanzino
Cast: John DiMaggio, Katy Segal, Billy West, Phil LaMarr

Another installment of the Futurama rebirth hits this week. Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs is the second of four new feature length episodes. It’s about a repulsive, planet-sized monster with romantic intentions! The first DVD, Futurama: Bender’s Big Score was released last November and has brought in over $16 million dollars in US DVD sales, proving to be a success for the franchise. This story takes place following the events of Bender’s Big Score and includes voical performances by Brittany Murphy, David Cross, Stephen Hawking and Dan Castellaneta. The next DVD, Bender’s Game, is set to be released this November. Into the Wild Green Yonder, the fourth and possibly final installment, should be available around this time next year.

10,000 B.C.
Director: Roland Emmerich
Cast: Steven Strait, Camilla Belle, Cliff Curtis, Joel Virgel, Omar Sharif

Roland Emmerich made his name making popcorn fluff like Stargate, Independence Day and Godzilla. With his last big budget production, he attempted to attack an important subject matter when he tackled global warming with The Day After Tomorrow. Well, with his latest tent pole, he made a film very similar to Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto…except with big ass saber-toothed cats, and a cast that speaks English. How good was it? It holds an amazing 9% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Say what you want about Gibson’s effort, but at least he did some research into the subject matter. I am amazed that Omar Sharif would work on a movie like this. Its big problem is that it could have been a wonderfully schlocky B-movie, but Emmerich takes the subject matter a little too seriously. Shame he didn’t take the research portion of pre-production a little more seriously.

The Hammer
Director: Charles Herman-Wurmfeld
Cast: Adam Carolla, Heather Juergensen, Oswaldo Castillo, Tom Quinn, Harold House Moore, Jonathan Hernandez

A movie that has gotten some great reviews is this boxing movie starring Adam Carolla. Yeah, The Man Show guy. He portrays Jerry Ferro, a carpenter by day, Pasadena gym boxing instructor by night. It is pretty clear Carolla, who wrote the original story that would be adapted into this film, created the character with his own talents in mind. Before becoming a successful comedian and television personality, he drifted through jobs such as carpentry and boxing instruction. Those talents help the movie seem more natural than a film where two men who had never boxed try their hands at the sport (see: Made). The film was written and directed by the same team that made Kissing Jessica Stein.

The Spiderwick Chronicles
Director: Mark Waters
Cast: Freddie Highmore, Sarah Bolger, Nick Nolte, Mary-Louise Parker, David Strathaim, Seth Rogan, Martin Short, Andrew McCarthy

There is a lot of backlash against young Freddie Highmore lately, and I can’t figure out why. I consider him one of the best child actors working today and he annoys much less than most others. He seems smart, extremely talented and seems to have an eye (or his agent does, at least) for a good opportunity. I first discovered him in Finding Neverland, which I absolutely love. He was really good in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as well. I know August Rush got a poor review on this very site, but I really enjoyed the movie when I saw it in the theater and thought Highmore continues to develop into a strong young actor. I remember back when Haley Joel Osment was being looked at as the best young male actor in the business after Sixth Sense, A.I. and Secondhand Lions, but he’s grown into quite an awkward-looking man. Highmore might face that same problem, but for now I am enjoying watching him perform at such a high level. I was saying the same thing about Dakota Fanning a few years back. What the hell happened to her?

In Bruges
Director: Martin McDonagh
Cast: Colin Farrell, Ralph Fiennes, Brendan Gleeson

This is a movie I really wanted to see in theaters and missed out on. Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson are hitmen who are sent to be holed up in Bruges. The two men take different outlooks on this situation as Gleeson seems enamored with the locale, while Farrell is disgusted and hates every minute he spends there. That is until Farrell’s character notices things like a midget. Sentences like that makes me hate every minute I missed seeing this movie in theaters. The movie is said to be irreverent and politically incorrect which is just fine with me as those are the movies I love the most. I will buy this movie on tuesday, return home and watch it without pause.

Definitely, Maybe
Director: Adam Brooks
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Abigail Breslin, Elizabeth Banks, Derek Luke, Rachel Weisz, Isla Fisher

And now one for the ladies. I am torn on this movie. The trailers looked endearing and I thought it might be a nice little movie. Here is where I am torn. On one side we have the best actor in every movie he has ever been in: Ryan Reynolds. On the other side we have Little Miss Sunshine, trying desperately to extend her fifteen minutes of fame. Remember how I said I really liked Freddie Highmore as a child actor. This is the opposite end of the spectrum. Ryan Reynolds will make this movie enjoyable and if the scenes with Breslin are of the minority and the flashback scenes with the beautiful trio of actresses (Banks, Weisz and Fisher) overwhelms the present day stuff, I think I can enjoy this movie. Actually, with Reynolds in it, I could enjoy a Renaissance Period Piece, and that’s saying a lot. That is actually an interesting concept – Ryan Reynolds in Sense and Sensibility or even better – Ryan Reynolds is Mr. Darcy. Definitely? Maybe – not.

Vincent Paronnaud
Cast: Chiara Mastroianni, Catherine Deneuve

Persepolis is a 2007 Academy Award nominated animated film. It is a coming of age story about a young girl in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. It won the Jury Prize at 2007 Cannes Film Festival and is filmed in black and white in the style of the original graphic novels. There are also present day scenes presented in color and sections of historic narrative designed to look like a shadow theater show. The film was almost universally praised by critics (95% on Rotten Tomatoes), called the movie The Kite Runner wishes it could have been, and is favorably compared to Truffaut’s The 400 Blows. It’s getting both a standard release and a Blu-ray release.

The Furies – Criterion Collection
Director: Anthony Mann
Cast: Barbara Stanwyck, Wendell Corey, Walker Huston

Damn, 1950 was a spectacular year in film. The Asphalt Jungle, Rashomon, Rio Grande, All About Eve, Sunset Blvd., In a Lonely Place. There were a lot of wonderful films released that year, but as John Huston was rolling out one of his masterpieces in The Asphalt Jungle, his father Walter was turning in his final role, passing away four months before The Furies would be released. While Rio Grande would be the western most remembered from that year, it is The Furies that is the better film. Huston continued his wonderfully iconic performances, coming off his Oscar winning role in 1949’s The Treasure of Sierra Madre, a film written and directed by his son. The Furies tells the story of a father and daughter (Huston and Barbara Stanwyck) and their fiery relationship with one another. It would be nominated for an Oscar for its cinematography

Charlie Bartlett
Director: Jon Poll
Cast: Anton Yelchin, Robert Downey Jr., Hope Davis, Kat Dennings

Every trailer for this movie reminded me of the complaints people have about Ferris Bueller. I will let the man who preaches against the movie the hardest his say: Andre: “Ferris Bueller is a sociopath. Ferris is a means to an end sort of guy… the problem with the character of Ferris Bueller is that he’s something of a shit. That’s a modest sticking point for what amounts to a “fun ride,” but the film presents the fact that he’s an abusive manipulator who gets things over because he’s charming. The character is point-blank xenophobic.” Every trailer I have seen for this movie makes the character of Charlie Bartlett seem very much like the description I just read you. However, there is one VERY redeeming quality about this movie. Robert Downey Jr. At this point, I would watch a short film of Downey Jr. sitting on the toilet reading the newspaper. Yeah.

Before the Rain – Criterion Collection
Director: Milcho Manchevski
Cast: Katrin Cartlidge, Rade Serbedzija, Gregoire Colin, Labina Mitevska

Before the Rain was the first film made in the newly independent Republic of Macedonia. It crosscuts the stories of an orthodox Christian monk, a British photo agent and a native Macedonian war photographer. It is considered one of cinema’s most powerful laments on the futility of war, shot during the strife of the war-torn Balkan states in the nineties. It would be nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1995 and would win the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
