Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff

Die Another Day -- The James Bond pictures always seem from another time, or more properly, of no time at all, divorced from the era of the Ian Fleming novels and from the other movies of any given year. What's freshest about this installment is that Pierce Brosnan is given the chance to draw on the darker side of his personality, and the game voluptuousness of Halle Berry as his partner in smirk, Jinx. Other than a testosterone-fest of a fencing match, however, there's nothing much new here. (RP) Rated: PG-13

The Emperor's Club -- Sounding more than a bit like Dead Poets Society, this is based on Ethan Canin's short story, "The Palace Thief," and features Kevin Kline as a no-nonsense professor whose life is changed by a new student (Emile Hirsch) with a will as strong as his own. Rated: PG-13

Friday After Next -- Part three of the Friday series again has Craig and Day-Day (Ice Cube and Mike Epps) trying to get through all the bad breaks coming their way. They lose everything in an apartment break-in and have to get jobs as security guards at the mall. The third time might not be the charm. Rated: R

Igby Goes Down -- Kieran Culkin is Igby, a very bright but troubled lad who bounces from school to school and can't figure out how to deal with his oddball family -- jerky brother Ryan Phillippe, pushy mom Susan Sarandon, disturbed dad Bill Pullman -- or the world in general. Along come two women (Amanda Peet and Claire Danes) who change things for him, as does the city called New York. Funny and heartbreaking in equal measure, and Culkin is terrific. (ES) Rated: R

& lt;i & Capsule reviews are written by Ed Symkus (ES) and Ray Pride (RP), unless otherwise noted. & lt;/i &
