Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & World Trade Center -- Oliver Stone takes an unexpectedly delicate approach in his nonpolitical, human-interest focus on what happened in Manhattan on 9/11. This is the story of two Port Authority cops who were trapped beneath the rubble of Tower One. It's about their practically implausible thoughts of survival and of their loved ones at home. And it's about those loved ones wondering if the men in their lives were still alive. Terrific low-key performances by Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena, and a great script that avoids the big picture but stays with a microcosm of that awful day's events. (ES) Rated PG-13





Zoom -- An ex-superhero is enlisted to instruct a bunch of good-fer-nothin' kids in the art of superhero-stry. It's like Bad News Bears, minus Richard Linklater, minus Billy Bob Thornton, minus a PG-13's worth of profanity, plus Tim-the-frickin'-Tool-Man Taylor. So more like Boring News ... boring, just boring. Rated PG





Pulse -- Ghosts and demons have found the Internet via a "special frequency" -- like maybe a special setting on your modem or wireless router or something -- and now a group of unsuspecting kids who've stumbled upon said "special frequency" are finding pale, bald evil things attacking them in laundromats and whatnot. Advance screenings warn Woolite has little effect. Rated R





Step Up -- We at The Inlander get a little cranky when we have to go more than, like, four months without a film about a plucky boy/girl from one side of the tracks befriending, on the dance floor, a more refined boy/girl from the other side of those tracks. Thank God for Step Up, then; we nearly got suicidal. Bad-side-of-the-tracks guy looks like a krumper (so hot right now) and the good-side-of-the-tracks girl is a ballerina. They're going to learn valuable lessons about judging book covers. Rated PG-13





Who Killed the Electric Car? -- Asked and answered, this doc seeks to unravel the imbroglio of corporate interests that caused an incredibly promising technology (the electric car, doi) to be pushed underground for, like, the last 20 years. Information is given, myths are dispelled. Rated PG
