YOUR WEEKEND PIC (June 30 - July 2)

(A guide to help you plan your cinema-going)


1. SUPERMAN RETURNS (Fantasy adventure with Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey) Rated * * * (out of 4): The Man of Steel is back and he is saving the world from Lex Luthor's evil and reclaiming his old flame reporter Lois.

2. TAKE THE LEAD (ballroom dancing caper with Antonio Banderas and Rob Brown) Rated: * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): Like a modern Zorro, Banderas rides in (on bicycle) to save a bunch of hopeless students from boredom by teaching them ballroom dancing. Viva Banderas!

3. SCARY MOVIE 4 (Irreverent parody of blockbusters with Cindy Campbell, Craig Bierko, Regina Hall and Leslie Nielsen) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): This sequel spoofs The Saw, War Of The Worlds, The Grudge and The Village and even takes a swipe at Oprah Winfrey.

4. STAY ALIVE (video game horror, starring Jon Foster, Sophia Bush and Frankie Muniz) Rated * 1/2 (1.5 stars): This story about video-gamers actually getting killed while playing a game is lamely contrived and utterly devoid of thrills and spills.

5. LOVE UNDERCOVER 3 (Cantonese comedy with Fiona Sit, Hui Siu Hung and Takuya Suzuki) Rated * (1 star): The only reason for anyone to catch this inane scatterbrain comedy is for one to punish oneself.

Hey Vasu!
I shall be watching Pirates Of Caribbean 2 tomorrow. Will post the review a day later or tomorrow nite. Thanks for your support. BTW, I am writing for CinemaOnline.com.my and my reviews will also be posted there. However, the star-rating therein is a bit different as it is based on 5-stars whereas it is four-star maximum on my blog. Have been following your exploits in Parliament. Keep it up.
