Stardust “Stardust” is the next evolution of the “The Princess Bride”. It is a film that bridges the gap between fantasy, romance, and drama. Director Matthew Vaughan takes us on an adventure that is sure to warm you heart and make you believe in another world filled with magical creatures and possibilities. Tristan Thorn (Charlie Cox) lives in the village of Wall, which for the purposes of this film is located in England. He is smitten with Victoria (Sienna Miller), the stereotypical shallow, pretty girl of the village. Thinking he loves Victoria, he is willing to do anything to “win” her love and hand in marriage. While on a picnic, the two spot a shooting star. Victoria agrees that if Tristan were to bring her a fallen star, she would marry him. Their marriage is contingent upon Tristan bringing the star to ...

License to Wed “License to Wed” has all the earmarks of the perfect Robin Williams vehicle. One, he gets to play a character so far outside the realm of reality that audiences should be riveted to their seats waiting to see what he does next. Two, he has the opportunity to adlib a lot and go completely nuts. Instead, Williams plays Reverend Frank too low-key in most spots and is too offensive in others. Sadly, most of his over-the-top behavior as the church pastor has been seen before, or is expected of him. When he’s playing catch with Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and deliberately hits him in the nose with a baseball, Reverend Frank goes over to “heal” him. What spews out of his mouth is pure Robin Williams, but it’s Robin Williams that all his fans have heard before. As a result, that ...

Inside Man This, Spike Lee’s first “regular Hollywood movie,” is sleek, clever and intermittently involving. Unfortunately, it’s just a little too long to work all the way through, and you’ll probably find your attention wandering at about the one hour mark. Still, it’s occasionally tense and has an inventive—too inventive?—script by first-time screenwriter Russell Gewirtz. Lee gets things off to a fast start; the movie has barely begun when four crooks invade a plush Wall Street bank while dressed as wall painters. They immediately take over, barricade the front doors—and then essentially just shut up. Skilled NYPD hostage negotiator Keith Frazier (Denzel Washington) briskly takes over from somewhat irked Captain Darius (Willem Dafoe). Late in the film, the tables are turned on Frazier, but by that time, he’s so curious about the atypical behavior of the holdup team—they demand a plane?—and worried enough about ...

Mercury Rising “Mercury Rising” was touted as a thinking man’s thriller when it came out in 1998. Paranoia about Y2K and how the world was going to end because computers couldn’t think past the year 2000 wasn’t quite upon the world, but people were thinking about it. T Bruce Willis was obviously looking for another action-driven success after the first three “Die Hard” movies. In his interview included on the disc, he states that there are plenty of other actors out there who could do what he does, and that what he feels movies have to offer these days is a solid story. He felt certain “Mercury Rising” was that story. Willis’s portrayal of troubled FBI Special Agent Art Jeffries is good. He’s thoughtful and motivated, carrying a lot of guilt and anger, and doesn’t play well with others. He shares those traits with ...

Last Starfighter, The Even director Nick Castle admits “The Last Starfighter” owes a lot to the Star Wars movies, as well as to Spielberg’s “E.T.” So don’t come to this movie looking for originality—it has very little of that. But it’s warm-hearted, albeit clumsily so, and features the last movie role of the great Robert Preston, here more or less “The Music Man”’s Harold Hill as an alien looking for adept star warriors. Preston twinkles, ingratiates and completely steals, without too much effort, every scene he appears in. He even gets a death scene (but death doesn’t last long in this kind of movie). The screenplay is by Jonathan Betuel, who’s had what might politely be called a checkered, skimpy career—his most recent movie was 13 years ago, the barely-released “Theodore Rex.” His script for “The Last Starfighter” is adequate—it has the kind of ...
