deadCENTER FILM FESTIVAL: TEN YEARS, MAN!

The fest has grown from screening a handful of films over the course one weekend back in 2001 to showcasing over 100 movies and shorts over five days and attracting filmmakers from across the globe. In this, its tenth year, deadCENTER is firing on all cylinders and is — in my humble opinion — one of the best film festivals around. Period.

STAR TREK

4 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 126 minutes

LOVING THE ABRAM-IZATION! The new “Star Trek” is a seriously entertaining action flick with little in the way of soul-searching or philosophy.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

2 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 107 minutes

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” has some serious problems. The biggest is that, aside from the dark and mysterious past, the character of Wolverine isn’t all that interesting.

FIGHTING

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 105 minutes

Maybe a more interesting film would have Shawn examining the root causes underlying his fury and coming to terms with them in an adult fashion? Nah, probably not.

THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT

1.5 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 100 minutes

All of this proves Iliadis has no interest in larger questions of human nature, but simply wants to give us that sweet payback money shot.

WATCHMEN

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 127 minutes

Is the movie visually arresting? Certainly, but it’s also glossy and ham-handed where the source material was unvarnished and introspective…

EXPLICIT ILLS

3 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 87 minutes

Dano and top-billed Rosario Dawson are the most effective. Typically, they also have the least amount of screen time…

WALL-E

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: G
Running Time: 97 minutes

OSCAR WINNER FOR BEST ANIMATED FILM 2009 What makes “WALL-E” so impressive isn’t merely the graphics, which we’ve almost come to take for granted after 13 years of excellence, or the number of movies referenced, it’s the minimalist nature of the script…
