Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Mozart and the Whale & r & Containing the seeds of a good film but lacking the contextual soil within which such things sprout, here's a tale of a little-understood form of autism and the interpersonal strife it can cause. If you know about Asperger's, this film will make sense and will probably touch you. If you don't -- well, good luck. (LB)





Thank You For Smoking & r & Aaron Eckhart plays a tobacco spokesman with a gift for what Plato called sophistry. He takes the talking points of Big Tobacco and turns them into air-tight arguments: "The number one killer in America is cholesterol ... and here comes Senator Finistirre who is clogging the nation's arteries with Vermont Cheddar Cheese." Directed by Ivan Reitman's son, this film is (if you haven't noticed) a satire. Rated R





The Wild & r & This looks shockingly like Madagascar. Only difference it seems is that rather than escaping a New York zoo and ending up in Africa, this wild bunch escapes a New York zoo and purposely head to Africa, chasing some lion's cub or something. It remains unclear why the Koala has a Scottish accent. Rated G





Scary Movie 4 & r & Scream had the decency to stop at three films, but then, the Scary Movie franchise had the good sense to stop aping Scream after only two. The fourth film, now, mimics the third, lampooning films (War of the Worlds, The Village) with current-ish events (the president freezing on 9/11, Tom Cruise on Oprah) for what's sure to be light-hearted mediocrity. Rated PG-13
