28 Days Later. About as expected zombie-ish flick with a twist. Decent premise and a whole lot of suspense (though a bit over the top at times). Take that animal rights activists.
Hidalgo. Better than expected but still glad I didn’t catch it in the theater. Half-blood late-19th century cowboy tears ass across the Arabian desert on his half-blood horse. If it were a beverage it’d been served with a dash of surprise and a twist of irony.
White Oleander. Post-feminist “Cinderella” gone horribly wrong. Nevertheless, if you can make it through the second act, it’s worth seeing it through to the end. Moral: there’s no such thing as redemption.
