Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & Tim Burton's Corpse Bride -- Stop-motion animation, smoother, better, more elegant than in Burton's great Henry Selick collaboration, The Nightmare Before Christmas. This time he works with Mike Johnson in a story of a skittish groom-to-be who accidentally marries a dead woman, while his bride-to-be wonders what's going on. It happens to be light and funny and dazzling, and a little scary, and terrifically acted by Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Emily Watson. Good emotional plot twists, witty Danny Elfman songs and an odd ending. A wonderfully odd film. (ES) Rated PG





Flight Plan -- Holy Crappola! Jodie Foster, who builds massive jet liners -- possibly by herself, in her spare time -- is on the first flight of her new plane when disaster strikes. Her daughter goes missing. Just one problem, though: no one on board ever saw her daughter -- like, even before she disappeared. So is Jodie crazy or is she so sane that she's blowing all of our minds? More importantly, how many crazy-or-sane plot contrivances can fit into a fall? So far it's like three. Rated PG 13





Magnificent Desolation -- Using previously unseen photographs, computer imagery of the lunar surface and newly released NASA footage, the film promises to give earth-bound viewers the feeling of taking that one giant leap for mankind. Or something. Unrated at IMAX.





Roll Bounce -- This movie is about, uh, roller disco. Specifically, about wrong-side-of-the-tracks kids who try to break into the roller disco big leagues by going cross-town to challenge the upper-middle-class roller disco kids. Along the way, you can bet there will be some message about race and tolerance and inclusion. But whether black or white, everyone looks stupid on roller skates. Rated PG 13

    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.
