Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff

AMC Classic Film Festival -- Friday's classic film offering encourages viewers to learn to stop worrying and love the bomb in 1964's Dr. Strangelove (not rated), starring Peter Sellers and George C. Scott. On Saturday, Sharks and Jets rumble on the mean streets of New York while Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer romance one another in the 1961 musical West Side Story (not rated). Tom Hulce is one irreverently brilliant Mozart, F. Murray Abraham delivers the fire of Antonio Salieri's envy and Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) chews up the scenery as a horrified maid in 1984's Amadeus. (Rated: R).

Abandon -- A college senior (Katie Holmes) is tormented by visions of the boyfriend who disappeared during her freshman year at an Ivy League school. Her mysterious inside knowledge of the case makes her a suspect, and she finds herself fielding interrogations by washed up detective and recovering alcoholic Benjamin Bratt. Rated: PG-13

Duct Tape Forever -- Fans of Canada's The Red Green Show will want to glue themselves to the theater seats for this big screen debut. Red Green (Steve Smith) and the other esteemed members of the Possum Lodge need to find a way to come up with some cash, pronto, when a businessman's limo is damaged by a Lake Toronto-sized pothole out in front of the lodge. Enter the Duct Tape Competition and its cash prize of $10,000. Rated: PG-13

Formula 51 -- American Samuel L. Jackson is a chemist who travels to Liverpool to see if there's a market for his trippy new pharmaceutical. His British connection, Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty), is himself a supplier, a raver and none too friendly to Yanks. Rated: R

The Ring -- C'mon, how spooky can a PG-13 movie be? Naomi Watts' first feature since Mulholland Drive finds her in cute little boots, eager to scream at the complications in this remake of a Japanese smash hit that bore two sequels. Unfortunately, the complications suggest that supernatural is another word for "incomprehensible." The story's twists and turns, resulting from a siniser videotape, are filled with sleek, creepy imagery that may have made more sense in Japan than it does in rainy, rainy Seattle. Rated: PG-13 (RP)

Happy Times -- Zhao (Zhao Benshan) is poor, middle-aged and perpetually unlucky in matters of the heart. He meets the woman of his dreams through a matchmaker, and although he doesn't have two yuan to rub together, he convinces her that he is rich and will give her an opulent wedding. Needing to make money fast, he turns an abandoned railway car into a secluded spot for lovers and charges admission, calling it "The Happy Times Hotel." Deceptions thicken and misunderstandings fly in this bittersweet Chinese romantic comedy. Rated: PG. Plays at the Met on Monday, Oct. 21, at 5:30 and 8 pm, Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 2:30, 5:30 and 8 pm
