Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Antwone Fisher -- Derek Luke plays the titular hero of this autobiographical film, based on the life of screenwriter and producer Antwone Fisher. Once a troubled sailor whose repeated fistfights land him in the office of Navy psychiatrist Denzel Washington, Fisher turns his life around by finding the family who abandoned him and landing a job as a security guard on the Sony Pictures lot. Rated: PG-13 (Opens Wed., Jan. 1)





The Lion King -- The ultra smash Disney hit from 1994 now gets the IMAX treatment, making it bigger, but not necessarily better. The story, typical of Disney, runs from happy to terribly sad to happy again. The lion cub Simba witnesses the terrifying death of his father, then is convinced by an evil uncle to run away from home without taking the throne that's rightfully his. Unfortunately, too much music, too much of it not very good, gets in the way of everything. But there are plenty of laughs for young and old, and it remains a solid example of old-style animation. (E.S.) Rated G
