Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & BODY OF LIES & r & & r & Ridley Scott makes a paranoid-looking film about the questionable motives of counter-terrorism operatives in the era of an all-out war on terrorism and the inability, even for high-tech spies, of knowing who your friends are. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the assassin on the ground. Russell Crowe plays the man in Washington with questionable motives. (LB) Rated R





CITY OF EMBER


Children's fantasy centering on a colony of survivors buried in a city deep below the earth. The city that has kept them alive and safe from the harsh outside world is beginning to die, and now it's up to a ragtag group of kids to solve the riddle to escape Ember. Bill Murray and Tim Robbins play the grownups. (LB) Rated PG





THE DUCHESS


Keira Knightly plays the Duchess of Devonshire, a fashionista who lives a lavish lifestyle but, in the way of such things, has never found love. She hasn't given her husband a kid, either, which basically every aristocratic period film of all time warns is problematic. Her hubby is having an affair, which is par for the course. When she starts her own, a scandal erupts. (LB) Rated PG-13





THE EXPRESS


The based-on-fact story of Ernie Davis, the talented halfback who played magnificent football for Syracuse but never made it to a professional career. It's also a study of racism in America in the '40s, '50s, and '60s, and how it affected student sports. Great performances by Rob Brown as Davis and Dennis Quaid as Syracuse coach Ben Schwartzwalder. Also: terrific action, great '50s music, and a positive message. (ES) Rated PG





I SERVED THE KING OF ENGLAND


Jan Dite ("John Child"), a working-class Czech of the 1930s, dreams of amassing great wealth, owning a hotel and seducing beautiful women. He succeeds, but only by cooperating with Nazis (sort of) and ignoring their victims (mostly). An ironic comedy with subtitles, then: not for the hoi polloi, but still appealing to the head and heart. (MB) Rated R





QUARANTINE


An apartment building is quarantined. When a hazmat team is sent in two days later, the residents are nowhere to be found. Quarantine tells the story of the interim, where a reporter and some firemen get slowly picked apart by those absentee residents... who happen to have turned into zombies. (LB) Rated R

    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.
