New Releases for Tuesday May 23 2006

Game 6
As a New York playwright, Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton) made his name in boulevard comedy, and now has ventured closer to home and written something he really cares about. If his "cursed" Red Sox can finally win the World Series, maybe Nicky can break his own downward spiral

Felicity Huffman leaves the glamor of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES behind and makes a surprising diversion with this offbeat film. Playing an uptight male-to-female transsexual named Sabrina "Bree" Osbourne (née Stanley), Huffman gives a remarkable performance. Readying herself for the final snip that will make her womanly transformation complete, Bree's life takes a sudden turn when she receives a phone call from New York. Her son, Toby (Kevin Zegers), has been jailed, and Bree needs to post bail for him. The only problem is, Bree didn't know she had a son, but her therapist refuses to give her written permission to have the final part of her sex-change operation if she doesn't go, so Bree heads east from her California home. Thinking Bree is a Christian missionary, gay hustler Toby informs her of his intention to becom a porn star on the west coast, which brings out plenty of motherly instincts in the worried cross-gender father. So the two take a road trip back west, with Bree flailing in her attempts to tell Toby the truths about who she is and what she once was.

Deadwood Season 2
The long waited release of the rough, tough HBO Western series with all the blood, dust, and cussing that we all have grown to love.

High School Musical
Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hudgens star in this Disney Channel Original Movie as popular basketball team captain Troy and smart, stunning academic Gabriella. Both shock the members of the social cliques to which they belong when they each decide to audition for the high school's musical. By proving themselves to be brilliant performers, can these two teens lead their peers towards more open-minded thinking and acceptance of one another? HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL is a family-appropriate feature filled with hip music, popular dance moves, and tons of school spirit.

Cheaper By The Dozen 2
Steve Martin returns as the proud patriarch of the Baker family in this sequel to the original CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, based on a book by Frank B. Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth. This time, all twelve Baker kids and their parents, Tom (Martin) and Kate (Bonnie Hunt), are going on vacation, returning to their summer cabin in Wisconsin for one last hurrah before the kids grow up and go their separate ways. Lorraine (Hilary Duff) is on her way to New York to begin an internship with VOGUE, Nora (Piper Perabo) is hugely pregnant, and the Bakers want to spend some quality time all together for a change.

This action-horror film is set in ancient Romania and stars Kristianna Loken (TERMINATOR 3) as Rayne, a half-human/half-vampire sworn to kill her evil tyrant vampire father (Ben Kingsley). Michael Madsen, Michelle Rodriguez, and Matthew Davis play a trio of vampire hunters who ally themselves with Rayne. Based on a video game, this film earns its R-rating by offering a lot more blood, gore, and nudity--and less CGI effects--than most of its modern vamp contemporaries. With all its swords, chained breasts, gushing arteries, and severed heads, BLOODRAYNE seems more like a welcome throwback to those great early 1980s drive-in sword and sorcery flicks.


Tori’s favorites

Harold and Maude:
Stars Ruth Gordon and Bud court, directed by Hal Ashby with an incredible soundtrack provided solely by Cat Stevens. It is a classic cult film which once seen, is an immediate favorite of everyone, regardless of age.
After I first watched this film, it wouldn’t leave my mind. Every time I re-watch it, the feeling of hope and love comes flooding back to me. It is a film about the two most unlikely people who come together to form a life-changing bond full of brightness and warmth. Harold is a twenty year old man bored with his families wealth and high society but extremely interested in death and darkness until he meets Maude who is seventy-nine and only interested in the things in life that make you happy – smells, sights, flowers, singing, dancing, and so many more things that Harold never even knew existed. Together, they set a city plant free because it was dying in the harsh concrete and needed desperately to be in a forest. They play music together, have picnics together, and do so many other things that just make them happy. This film is amazing – everyone should be required to see it for prosperity sake!

High Fidelity:
Stars John Cusack, Jack Black, Todd Louiso, Iben Hjejle, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Lisa Bonet and many more. It is directed by Stephen Frears who also directed The Grifters and My Beautiful Laundrette.
This is a film about a semi-failing record store owner who tries to evaluate the reason he is doomed to be left, doomed to be rejected. With the help of his two wacky employees, Barry (Jack Black) and Dick (Todd Louiso), Rob Gordon (John Cusack) tries to make sense of his relationships past that went wrong and what he may be able to do to save his recently doomed one to a girl that actually was worth something to him. It is really funny, quirky, and the music throughout just brings the whole thing together.

Say Anything:
Stars John Cusack, Ione Skye and John Mahoney, directed by Cameron Crowe who was the writer of Fast Times at Ridgemont High as well as the writer and director of the semi-autobiographical film Almost Famous.
This film is individual, charming, truthful and full of fun. To me, this is one of John Cusack’s most handsome performances and it is the one that made me fall in love with him. For most of my life I have been looking for a Lloyd Dobler – as all of the characters say, to know Lloyd is to love him.

The Thing Called Love:
Stars Samantha Mathis, River Phoenix, Dermot Mulroney and Sandra Bullock, directed by Peter Bogdanovich.
The film begins with the main character Miranda Presley (Samantha Mathis) taking a greyhound down to Nashville, TN to try to make her singer-songwriter career become a reality. Fresh from New York City, Miranda befriends three fellow hopefuls in the shy Connecticut cowboy Kyle Davidson (Dermot Mulroney), the Southern Belle Linda Lue Linden (Sandra Bullock), and most importantly, in James Wright (River Phoenix) who is the cocky Texan with brooding good looks and a honeyed voice. The film is about love, friendship and being truthful, not only by what you say and do, but by the music you sing.

The Outsiders:
Has an all-star cast with C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise and Diane Lane. It is directed by the genius of Francis Ford Coppola back in 1983 and it is based off of the stirring young adult novel by S. E. Hinton.
The movie takes place on the streets of Tulsa, OK in 1966 where all of the teenagers are split up into 2 categories: the “socs” who are rich and successful have it all, but the “greasers” are from the other side of the tracks who are the outsiders with only their true friends by their side. As Francis Coppola says in his own words “The Outsiders takes place in an enchanted moment of time in the lives of all those boys. I wanted to catch that moment: I wanted to take those young street rats and give them heroic proportions.”

I found Game 6 to be a very entertaining movie showing the relationships between Broadway Producers, critics, and the Red Sox. With all the normal problems of dysfunctional families and eccentric people alike, and of coarse the day to day life in New York City with it's taxis and steam pipes and the social latter climbing Game 6 did a very good job of keeping me entertained. I give it a Heck Ya!!!
