February 2005
Week of February 28th through March 4th


Travolta returns as Chili Palmer in Be Cool, a sequel to the original comedy smash Get Shorty. In Be Cool, based on the novel by Elmore Leonard, Chili abandons the fickle movie business to bring his signature brand of wiseguy skills and negotiation tactics to the music industry. Featured in the film are Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn, Cedric the Entertainer, The Rock, Christina Milian, Andre Benjamin, and Danny Devito.

Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
The Pacifier Review (in Film )
It does have some entertaining moments, but essentially is a half-hour sitcom beaten into two hours.

Diary of a Mad Black Woman Review (in Film )
The balance of comedy and drama is wildly uneven in this film, but fans of the play will come out in droves to see Madea on the big screen.

Downfall Review (in Film )
It is a bold film that captures the sociopathic and delusional Hitler without portraying him as an unfeeling monster.

Hitch Review (in Film )
Will Smith brings back his comedic chops that made him a hit on TV and brings in Kevin James, who basically steals the films in his first try at the big screen.

Constantine Review (in Film )
It's a bewildering mess of special effects and truly horrid performances.

Imaginary Heroes Review (in Film )
The only saving grace is the performance of Sigourney Weaver, who props up the entire cast with her formidable screen presence.

The Wedding Date Review (in Film )
There's nothing entertaining at all to this; there's no redeeming qualities, so suck it up and prepare to be bored.

Are We There Yet? Review (in Film )
Unfortunately, while there are a few laughs, "Are We There Yet?" has one too many gags that should have been edited from jump start.

Ray DVD Review (in Film )
This passionate DVD is loaded with Behind the Scenes footage, Celebrity interviews, tour performance clips & a 2 page photo scrapbook/scene selector.

Alone in the Dark Review (in Film )
Avoid this one at all costs, even if it's on TV and you have one channel. 



The Donnie McClurkin Story DVD Review (in Film )
This passionate DVD is loaded with Behind the Scenes footage, Celebrity interviews, tour performance clips & a 2 page photo scrapbook/scene selector.

Mary J. Blige LA Concert DVD review (in Film )
In this DVD you can find tons of extra's including a performance done in 70s style with bright colors and black images multiplying to many as Mary sings "Free" in video form.
 
Coach Carter (in Film )
The performances by the cast are appealing enough that it overshadows the clichéd story.
