Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Chronicles of Riddick -- Pitch Black was a great science-fiction film: It was dark, funny, occasionally creepy and came out of nowhere. Because we had no expectations for this tale of a ragtag group of intergalactic travelers, we weren't disappointed by its occasional cheesy effects and uneven pacing. But now, one of the film's stars -- Vin Diesel -- is a genuine celebrity. Riddick catches up with his character five years after the first film, and puts the ex-convict in the middle of an intergalactic battle that will determine the fate of all beings, living and dead. Sounds exactly like the kind of movie we'd expect to find Dame Judi Dench in. Rated: PG-13





Garfield -- Did we really need a live-action version of the comic strip that appears in more than 2,500 newspapers? Apparently guest stars like Bill Murray (Bill Murray!), Debra Messing, Brad Garrett and Jennifer Love Hewitt think so. As in the recent Scooby Doo films, Garfield appears as a computer-generated creature. Rated: PG





The Stepford Wives -- While by no means the disaster it was rumored to be, The Stepford Wives (directed by Frank Oz) is still lumbering even at a trim 90 minutes or so. While an attempt to satirize consumerism and misogyny lingers in Paul Rudnick's script, it's too scattershot to be more than just plain boring. With a surprisingly colorless Nicole Kidman, Bette Midler and Christopher Walken. (RP) Rated: PG-13





What the #$! Do We Know? -- Recently featured at the 2004 Body Mind Spirit Expo here in Spokane, What the #$! Do We Know? purports to examine the interplay between spirituality, science and good ol' quantum physics. Not Rated.
