      Geezer: H

      Weezer: HH

      Director Stephen Norrington (Blade, 1998), with very little help from screenwriter James Dale Robinson, wastes the rich potential of Alan Moore’s comic book series. You’d think there’d be more to LXG than crash, bang, shoot, shoot, but there isn’t.

  • ‘I vill be bak’

    Based on Ahnold’s latest incarnation, let’s hope he won’t.

      Weezer: HH 1/2

      With Arnold Schwarzenegger as the "cybernetic organism" you love to dread (The Terminator, 1984) or root for (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, 1991), the first two brilliant installments seemed like all we'd ever need. So why does anyone (except the studio's cash flow) need a campy, tarnished Terminator 3?

    Danny Boyle lets us know the end is extremely fucking nigh.

    The comic-book id-monster runs wild on summer screens.

      Geezer: HH 1/2 / Weezer: HH 1/2

      When news came of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon director Ang Lee working on the Hulk adaptation, a lot of fans were intrigued. Well, the Hulk seems to have added Lee and Marvel Comics creator (on board as executive producer) Stan Lee’s best intentions to his smash-’em-up hit list.

  • Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd

      Geezer: no stars / Weezer: 1/2 H

      A warning to fans of comic mindlessness: The mother turd of all prequels is upon us! Veteran director Troy Miller and rookie screenwriter Robert Brenner don’t have the faintest idea about what makes a movie funny.

  • Sculpting wilderness

    Artist Andy Goldsworthy’s studio is the big, wide world.
      Here’s a very different film about art, one that shows Scottish environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy at work in the great outdoors. Exquisitely filmed on various American and European locations, it lets us hang with an artist at peace with the world and in awe of it. A must see for anyone interested in contemporary art.

  • Wrong Turn

      Geezer: 1/2H / Weezer: 1/2H

      Oh no, not again — another horror flick with unsuspecting twentysomethings traveling through the boonies and getting waylaid by dark forces. Rob Schmidt directed this rehash of clichés warmed over for the umpteenth time and, according to Weezer, "It’s awful."

  • Mutants unite!

    The action comic sequel boasts a wild and wicked band of outsiders.

      Geezer: HHH / Weezer: HHHH

      The leadoff hit of the summer lineup, is one of the most anticipated comic-to-movie transformations ever. Directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men), this carnival of mutant souls and superheroes holds up the mirror of "difference" to an uncomfortably multicultural America.

      Geezer: HHHH / Weezer: HHHH

      Director James Mangold’s dread-on cocktail of claustrophobia and psychosis will do a lot for the filmmaker’s rep, but even more for late-night video rentals for decades to come. Weezer says, "What a shocker! I was hoping for an above-average mystery-horror-thriller, but this was awesome."

  • Bulletproof Monk

      Geezer: HH 1/2 / Weezer: H 1/2

      Chow Yun-Fat plays a Tibetan monk charged by his former master with guarding an ancient scroll from anyone who might want to use its unlimited powers. But this movie’s East-meets-West formula has been overdone and is wrong to begin with.

  • House of 1000 Corpses

      Geezer: H / Weezer: HHH

      Things get r-e-a-l-l-y sick in Rob Zombie’s directorial debut. Working with a story that’s an extreme variation on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and a cast of cult figures and B-movie veterans (among them, Karen Black, Sid Haig and Bill Moseley), Zombie lets it all hang out, especially the innards.

  • Phone Booth

      Geezer: HHH / Weezer: HH

      Paranoia strikes deep in Joel Schumacher’s thriller about a cocky, deceitful publicist (Colin Farrell) trapped in a midtown-Manhattan phone booth by a sniper, though its 90 minutes of screen time boil down to some inconclusive conclusions – with Forest Whitaker.
