  • 'For Colored Girls': Who have considered suicide, when the rainbow is enuf

    There are lots of girls, meaning grown black women, to keep track of in Tyler Perry’s adaptation of Ntozake’s 1970’s play. Keep in mind in its original form, each woman represents a different color of the rainbow. The movie is filled with passion, and purpose. The poetry of the original is not left out, as each one gets her moment to express her thoughts, ambitions and doubts in an extended monolog. It is at these moments that the film loses some of its vitality and becomes rather stagey.

  • 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army' The freaks stick together again

    When there’s trouble, the freaks have to stick together was the moral of the first Hellboy movie. Many movie fans will be pleased with the first sequel to the first “Hellboy” film because the freaks are at it again. There’s not much story to get in the way of endless explosions, vast destruction, and general mayhem. There is the requisite humor from our red hero and his flaming girlfriend. In general, the movie has been constructed to please comic book fans. That’s not a bad thing. What else can it be?

  • 'HANCOCK' - Not the most lovable superhero around

    The summer of 2008 continues its parade of comic book movies. We’ve had Iron Man; Batman is coming soon. For now, we have to be content with Klutz Man. This is a superhero who has not mastered all his powers, and Hancock is not campaigning to be the best-loved man on the planet. He doesn’t know where his powers came from, and seems to resent having to be a role model. Maybe that’s why he drinks too much. Oh yes, he saves people and prevents accidents, but destroys much property in the process. The tide has begun to turn, and the population wants him to go away.

  • 'WALL-E' - A little talking, a lot of magical fun, and a life lesson

    If you’ve seen the previews of “WALL-E,” you may wonder why the songs from the musical “Hello, Dolly” are in a film which takes place in 2700 A.D. But don’t worry, all of it makes complete sense in this wonderfully funny, but thought-provoking, animated film about a robot getting interrupted doing what he was designed to do. WALL-E is a trash collecting robot left on an abandoned Earth which was overrun by earth’s non-conservation-minded peoples. If this sounds a little heavy for children, a lesson is taught in a kid-friendly way.

    THE INCREDIBLE HULK. In this quick re-make of the comic book superhero, we find Edward Norton as the normal human version of the green giant who was transformed by gamma rays. While Norton does add a more convincing persona to this twosome, is there really enough difference to merit this new version?
