  • How High

    Overall, this is a good movie for Method Man-Redman fans. Because the veteran rappers are known connoisseurs of fine roots and herbs, weaving weed into the plot is a no-brainer. But know going in whether you can stomach the N-word, B-word and H-word used ad nauseam.

    This film's calculated mainstream populist intentions prevent its workplace satire from approaching anything near the bite of, say, Mike Judge's Office Space. The scenes with Tim Allen and James Belushi have a kind of low-wattage charm and Allen throughout seems like somebody worth rooting for. But it's the script that sinks this one.

  • The Majestic

    Director Frank Darabont has turned a mistaken-identity device into a lovely meditation on loss and restoration — an irony-free fable about decency triumphing in the face of cowardice and shame — with Jim Carrey.

  • The Scene
  • Kate & Leopold

    Director James Mangold wants to have it both ways in this modern love story, one that reasserts the mythology of romance while making fun of escapist romance stories — with Meg Ryan, Liev Schrieber and a perfectly nuanced performance from Hugh Jackman.

  • The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition

    In August 1914, British explorer Ernest Shackleton set sail from Plymouth, England, with a 28-man crew determined to be the first to cross Antarctica on foot. Their story is a survival tale of an intensity that would be ludicrous if it were fiction. The film, directed by James Butler, makes excellent use of original footage.

    Toast has taken over Delia’s space in Ferndale, bringing a new decor and layout. The food is marvelous, plus beautiful to look at. Weekday egg-fests include some pretty fancy fixin’s along with more regular fare, and it gets more lavish on the weekend. Try the wild mushroom or French omelets, breakfast burrito or corned beef hash. The French toast layers challah with bananas and adds rum and vanilla, topped with a raspberry-blueberry sauce ... large and luscious.
