Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


New York Minute -- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen grew up in front of American audiences as Michelle, the irritatingly adorable little girl on the television show Full House. For a while they languished in direct-to-video schlock, until Hollywood noticed that they were two attractive pubescent teenage twins. Their resultant catapult to the big screen hits theaters this summer. Will they play it safe and squeaky clean? Or will we find co-stars (and veteran comedians) Andy Richter and Eugene Levy in the middle of sitcom-starlet sandwich? This might just be weird enough to work.





Van Helsing -- Rugged Hugh Jackman plays the rugged lead character, a hunter of monsters who is on the Vatican's payroll. He meets up with fearless vampire killer Anna (Kate Beckinsale) and the two of them take on Count Dracula (Richard Roxburgh). But there are many other monsters waiting to attack, and the filmmakers have spared no expense in the visual effects department. The scary stuff mixes nicely with some well-placed humor (most of it courtesy of David Wenham's Carl, very similar to James Bond's Q). There's much overkill in repetitive sight and blaring sound, but the relentless action and eye for detail is stunning. (ES) Rated PG-13
