MY FATHER THE HERO (dir: Steve Miner, PG) - Thom says, "All right Frenchies weve got Gerard Depardieu as a leading man. Perverts for you, we have a fifteen year-old Katherine Heigel (GREYS ANATOMY, KNOCKED UP). From wacky scenes in which Gerard Depardieu gets more than he bargained for out of a waterskiing trip (zany!) to that scene in which he realizes that everyone in the tropical resort thinks that he is a pedophile because his fifteen year-old daughter told her new crush that her father was actually her war-torn lover that may or may not die soon and the only way Gerard Depardieu can prove his love is to go along with it. Did I mention this is one of the most romantic stories ever told packaged in a tooty-fruity comedy that was too French for America?"
NAKED (dir: Mike Leigh, R) - Thom says, "There are no characters like those found in a Mike Leigh film. Johnny (played by David Thewlis, in the performance of his career) is easily my favorite dramatic character cheeky, intelligent, squalid, dangerous, and, most of all, charming. All of these mostly working-class Londoners radiate a sort of darkness and continuous struggle, sometimes to shocking ends. Leigh relies heavily on weeks and weeks on improvisation to develop both his characters and stories; there is no other way that these characters could feel as real as they manage to be. Leigh would only stop these improvisations (which would take place in public places without the actors knowledge of who was or was not an actor) when they verged on sex or violence which happened often. The result? An amazing character study in an unforgettable film."
FEARLESS (dir: Peter Weir, R) - Greg says, "Can't we just declare Jeff Bridges the greatest living actor and get it over with? His turn as a man on a spiritual quest after surviving a horrific plane crash might be his best. Not to mention great performances from Isabella Rossellini as his perplexed wife and Rosie Perez as a tormented fellow survivor. All assembled under the beautiful and eerie direction of the inimitable Peter Weir."
DAZED AND CONFUSED (dir: Richard Linklater, R) Greg says, "Man, growing up in the 70s looks awesome! You get to be beat up by Ben Affleck, hit on by an inappropriately older Matthew McConaughey and generally just spend every free second of the day smoking as much marijuana as possible before falling over. The reality was, by most accounts, much bleaker. But who cares? Any movie that easily convinces you that itd be a blast to stay up all night and then go wait in line for Aerosmith tickets has something going for it."
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES III (dir: Stuart Gillard, PG) Kurt says, "The first TMNT is legendary; TMNT III is not. It has none of the charm and too much animatronic motion that makes me feel like Im on LCD. The comic book's co-creator, Kevin Eastman, was born and raised in PORTLAND, MAINE. I like to think that he encountered the turtles in the sewers of Portland, and that they are actually drunk fisherman who think theyre ninjas."
