Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Alone in the Dark -- Getting over that a place is actually called "Shadow Island" is just one of the many suspensions of disbelief you might need in order to enjoy this sci-fi/supernatural thriller. Christian Slater plays an X-Files-ish detective who goes to the aforementioned island to try to solve a friend's mysterious death. Once there, he meets a former flame (Tara Reid) and discovers that an ancient tribe of island-dwellers worshipped demons who are on their way back, like right now. Rated: R





Hide and Seek -- Widower Robert DeNiro gets a little concerned when his daughter (Dakota Fanning) starts talking about an invisible friend. Is it a little girl's way of dealing with the death of her mother, or could it be that the invisible friend is something far more sinister? Rated: R





Million Dollar Baby -- Clint Eastwood plays the crusty old boxing trainer, Hilary Swank is his enthusiastic young charge and Morgan Freeman is the wise observer. Swank's spunky, trashy Maggie signs up at an old-fashioned gym and must convince Eastwood's Frankie to become her teacher. She's really good, with great desire to match her moves. Eastwood's film traces her comet-like rise, tells of lost people finding each other, and tosses in a risky tonal shift that goes for the emotions of all the characters and every audience member. (ES) Rated PG-13
