Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff
**** Alien: The Director's Cut -- Upon learning that boxes of footage from his original 1979 film were found, director Ridley Scott decided to edit some of it back in, while trimming scenes that he thought ran a little long. The result is a smoother, slicker (but still grimy and claustrophobic) Alien. It remains a nerve-wracking study in menace, with a grandly hideous monster to boot, in a story of a space ship returning home, and its crew being picked off one by one. It was and still is the granddaddy of the horror-science fiction genre. (ES) Rated R (Scheduled to open nationwide on Oct. 31; as we go to press, 20th Century Fox has decided to open the film only in selected markets. Call theaters for showtimes and/or opening dates.)

Brother Bear -- Disney's latest stars Joaquin Phoenix as the voice of a young man whose older brother is killed by a bear. Hoping to avenge his brother's death, Kenai (Phoenix) sets out on a heroic mission, only to find himself suddenly developing a strong craving for honey and enjoying the company of an owl, a piglet, a donkey and a rabbit. Oh wait. Wrong bear. No, Kenai turns into the very thing he set out to destroy -- a great big sharp-clawed, fur-covered, meat-eating ursus horribilis grizzly bear. Rated: G

*** In the Cut -- What's most harrowing in Jane Campion's moody Manhattan sex-and-murder thriller is how palpable Meg Ryan makes her character's disenchantment, capturing the mood of women in their late 30s or early 40s who stop believing in romance. Mark Ruffalo's the murder detective who rouses her from slumber. With Jennifer Jason Leigh. (RP) Rated: R

The Matrix Revolutions -- The final chapter of the trilogy is here, and with it, lots of fetishy black leather, trippy special effects, and clones. Lots of clones. Also, Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Laurence Fishburne. Rated: R (Opens Wednesday, Nov. 5)

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
