Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Blade: Trinity -- Wesley Snipes still hunts vampires, but now he's joined by two compadres: smart-aleck Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) and markswoman Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel). Their mission is to help create a virus that will wipe out vampires. The film is violent and action-packed, but also very funny in both dialogue and offbeat plot devices (such as a cute little Pomeranian vampire). There's solid support from Dominic Purcell as Vampire No. 1, Parker Posey as a nasty vampiress, and wrestling's Triple H as a body-slamming vampire thug. (ES) Rated R





The End of Suburbia -- Did we think it was gonna last forever? The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the End of the American Dream takes a good, hard look at "the American way of life" as sold to us by countless big corporations. Superstores, SUVs and suburban housing developments all depend on one thing - fossil fuels - and those are vanishing at an alarming rate. So what's next? This sobering-yet-entertaining documentary posits a few answers. Not Rated. Free showing Sunday, Dec. 12, at 3 pm at the Met.





Ocean's Twelve -- George Clooney, Brad Pitt and all the rest are back in a rousing follow-up to Ocean's Eleven that turns out to be a much looser romp through the now international heist scene. Told in convincing manner that they must return the $160 million they stole the first time around, they head for Europe and some bigger jobs. But it all turns into a "who's the better thief?" contest, and a sideline plot takes to skewering celebrities (a funny thing for this bunch of actors to do). It's one of those rarities: a sequel that's far better than the original. (ES) Rated PG-13





Therese: The Story of St. Therese of Lisieux --- Therese Martin was born in rural France in 1873; friends and family reportedly saw little in the young child's life that would indicate later sainthood. Yet Therese, who would enter the convent at 13 and later be canonized, is one of the most revered of Catholic saints. Luke Films - an independent Catholic film company based in Portland -- offers this pious, glowing account of her life. Much of Therese, incidentally, was filmed outside Portland. Rated: PG
