Vanity Fair (2004)
In Vanity Fair's universe without heroes, shameless central character Becky Sharp would have surely felt supremely at home stuck on Temptation Island, or in the boardroom of The Apprentice.

Premonition (2007)
If the director seems to show Sandra no mercy as she's instructed to run around breathlessly for two hours in circles through the past, present and future in no particular order, imagine the even greater toll this movie takes on the exasperated audience.

Buppie infidelity, marital boredom and female temptation on every street corner are the predicaments posed by this Chris Rock directed oddly unromantic fare.

Fay Grim (2007)
Hartley should stick to what he knows best - the wacky and eccentric, sometimes annoying but exceedingly touching lives of the blue collar world where he grew up, in an extended family of Long Island iron workers.

Truly disturbing hard edge heavy metal laced scenes, however simulated, of the mass slaughter by military helicopter gunships of a mix of healthy and infected fleeing humans by their own government, really confounds as to who the actual monsters may be.

The Ex (2007)

Diggers (2007)

Fracture (2007)

Dogtown's testosterone fueled, deeply and sadly affectionate excursion into the contact highs and lows of male adolescence, gets it just right and more.

And as far as Cinderella's pumpkins go, though the movie ends with Braddock's boxing triumph in Hollywood's notorious freeze-frame approach to history, both Braddock and Baer went on to be decked by Joe Louis.

Such is the sordid state of affairs in that emerging genre that might be termed suburban noir, as it inches ever closer to horror and the supernatural.

As magical as classic fairy tales may seem to be, a winking Gilliam is out to prove here that to a profoundly superstitious, stressed out early 19th century world, those legends were as frighteningly real as any documentary or even reality show today.

Disturbia (2007)
Disturbia is meant to infuse the suburban veneer of tranquility with an undercurrent of lurking menace and dormant depravity, and well it does.

Chaos (2003)
Sort of a Hansel and Gretel outing with machetes and chainsaws substituting for the mythic oven.

The movie goes extra lite on the comic fluff, while doing the usual heavy handed thing when it comes to hayseed caricatures.

Molly Shannon's tragically kooky protagonist samples both human and canine companionship in the search for an ideal mate.

Too talky and philosophical for kids, and dabbling in lavish imagery that lacks enough narrative coherence to hook adults, this is an animated feature that, well, needed to get a little more animated.

It's the story that gets in the wayof this magic show, coasting along a much more awkward path that finally hardly seems to matter.
