  • Beyonce Knowles stars at Etta James in Cadillac Records, opening Friday.
CADILLAC RECORDS—A moody, socially conscious biopic featuring A-list actors playing legendary musicians can only mean one thing: it's Oscar season. Whatever the studio's aspirations might be, the reviews so far have been mixed for this film, which stars Beyonce Knowles, Jeffrey Wright and rapper Mos Def (to name a few) as the blues artists who started a sonic revolution in the '50s. Adrian Brody rounds out the all-star cast as Leonard Chess, one of the first white guys to get rich off African American music. Rated R.

LET THE RIGHT ONE INLet the Right One In, a precious Swedish vampire movie directed by Tomas Alfredson, is a critical success and an art house hit, being met with the kind of hushed awe with which the movie regards itself. It takes place in a small town, following the characters of Oskar—a shy, bullied preteen—and his new next door neighbor, Eli—a well-meaning, standoffish vampire girl. Lingering on his neatly arranged set-ups, rarely moving the camera, Alfredson has created the illusion of something contemplative—profound, even. But his film uses the metaphor-ready vampire template to tell a shopworn story about a bullied kid who finds refuge with another outcast. Call it backlash if you like, but I think Let the Right One In is a phony film. Reviewed on page 39. Rated R. —NG

PUNISHER: WAR ZONE—The once-great Marvel Comics series continues its downward slide with the second film in a franchise that is starting to look suspiciously like straight-to-video material. Attention, fans of The Wire: Dominic "McNulty" West plays Jigsaw, the archenemy of the title character. Rated R.

Current Releases

AUSTRALIAAustralia is no less than a Gone with the Wind for the new millennium. Director Baz Luhrmann layers the Western, the war movie and the romantic epic together with conniving villains and meditations on race and history into an absorbing and eye-catching tour de force. Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman), an uptight aristocrat, arrives in her remote Australian cattle station to find her husband murdered. She prevails upon The Drover (Hugh Jackman) for help, and ravishing romance soon follows. Luhrmann says he dreamed of making an epic about his homeland that echoed the adventure films he loved as a boy, and Australia is a fine addition to the canon of classic films about resourceful people living in tumultuous times. Luhrmann, however, seems to have taken the "epic" moniker rather seriously—his film is around three hours long (isn't it time to reinvent the intermission, too?)—and while it does have its longeurs (and two or three climaxes), its rip-roaring pace rarely flags. —LB

BOLT—The star of this 3-D animated spectacle is a small white shepard (voiced by John Travolta) who's lived his whole life as the star of his own action TV show, in which he possesses superpowers and does battle alongside his owner, a young girl named Penny (Miley Cyrus). After Bolt gets accidentally airmailed off the studio lot, he embarks on a cross-country journey back to Hollywood, aided by a loner feline and an over-caffeinated, TV-addicted hamster. A cleverer plot would delve more into the film's central query of whether it is better to live an extraordinary fantasy or a mundane reality. Bolt bears the earmarks of good breeding, its dramatic bite doesn't quite match up to its bark. Rated PG. —NM

THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS—Adapted from John Boyce's novel, this Holocaust film's strength lies in the power of the audience's preexisting ideas about the horrors of the era. 8-year-old Bruno (Asa Butterfield) and his family move near the Jewish concentration camp where his father (David Thewlis) is commandant. Searching for adventure, Bruno wanders near the camp's fenced perimeter, where he befriends a young prisoner named Shmuel (Jack Scanlon). There is subtle power channeled through Bruno's naiveté that writer-director Mark Herman uses to craft a daedal, affecting fable. But, then comes the dispiriting ending, which is overwrought, illogical, and unjustifiable. Rated PG-13. —NM

FOUR CHRISTMASES—Hollywood's newest mass-market holiday film is not great cinema, but neither is it like any other Christmas movie of recent years. Though Four Christmases wraps itself up nicely with the requisite heartwarming ending, along the way it drops some napalm on the Hollywood myth of the nuclear family. Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon—leading a cast that includes Sissy Spacek, Dwight Yoakam, a cougar-ish Mary Steenburgen and Jon Voight—play yuppies of highly dysfunctional origins who are forced to spend Christmas day jogging between a quartet of divorced and profoundly maladjusted parents. The results are sometimes hilarious, often disturbing and occasionally both (Duvall: "I don't want to talk disrespectfully about your mother on Christmas... But that woman is a cheap whore!"). A schmaltzy climax and tasteless potty humor only reinforce a cynical but oddly liberating message: For some, the best place to spend the holidays is as far from home as possible. Rated PG-13. --SW

HAPPY-GO-LUCKYHappy-Go-Lucky is a portrait of a primary school teacher named Poppy, a character who could have been an obnoxious wide-eyed optimist but is in this film a unique, believable young woman with an exacting wit and nimble perception, always equipped with a comeback. She's the antidote to vapid movie happiness, the anti-Amelie. Mike Leigh's film has an unforced flow, driven by the steady, often silly stream of Poppy's zingers, comebacks, one-liners, and mini-monologues. Sally Hawkins' performance carries the movie, baring the multiple layers of her character's charm and intellect. Rated R. —NG

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR—Poured from the same fount as Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers and The Cheetah Girls, this megawatt Disney Channel movie franchise finds its heritage in the cardigan karaoke of the 1950s, the beach party films of the 1960s, and Fame in the 1980s. Rated G. —NM

MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA—The best thing that can be said about this animated sequel is that it will entertain youngsters under the age of 10. Of course, the same can be said about an animatronic jug band at Chuck E. Cheese's, which might, come to think of it, rival the second Madagascar film in plot depth and originality. For kids, the plotting merely marks time between appearances by Sacha Baron Cohen's hyperactive, self-assured lemur Julien. For everyone else, only the return of those sardonic penguins provides any real chuckles. Rated PG. —NM

RACHEL GETTING MARRIED—Anne Hathaway plays Kym, a recovering junkie who comes home for her sister Rachel's wedding. Kym blames her insecurities on her family, even as she tries to make amends with Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt). While too many scenes focus on Kym and Rachel hammering out their differences, a fine supporting cast and Jonathan Demme's keen eye for how to direct the large ensemble of wedding guests makes Rachel much better than its limp premise promises. Rated R. —NG

QUANTUM OF SOLACE—Despite its heralded reboot with Daniel Craig as a buffer, badder and meaner Bond, the latest entry in the 007 franchise is filled with conservative fodder that is surprisingly dependent on plot devices and ideas from earlier, less edgy incarnations. This time, Bond chases a shadowy syndicate, QUANTUM, that has infiltrated MI6 and the CIA, evoking the Red Scare fears of the 1950s. The villain du jour is the lamely dubbed Dominic Greene (whatever happened to Oddjob and May Day?), played by Mathieu Amalric. What elevates even this middling Bond chapter is the presence of Craig. His 007 is taciturn and seemingly emotionally cold, but he is actually a more human Bond, one who bleeds when injured and constantly does battle with his stifling neuroses. Rated PG-13. —NM

SOUL MEN—Louis Hinds (Samuel L. Jackson) and Floyd Henderson (Bernie Mac) are former backup singers in a 1960s R&B trio who became estranged after their lead left for a solo career. After their ex-partner dies, Hinds and Henderson call a truce and embark on a road trip for a tribute concert at Harlem's Apollo Theater. The result is a satisfying mix of hilarity and melancholy, the latter fueled by the recognition that Mac and Isaac Hayes, who makes a cameo, did not live to see this film's release. Rated R. —NM

SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK—Charlie Kaufman makes his directorial debut with Synecdoche, New York, and it's the best thing he's ever been attached to. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Caden Cotard, a deeply depressed theater director who uses a MacArthur grant to launch a massive project that is doomed to incompletion from the outset. Despite its gloomy subject and depressed central character, this is a fun film, and it works through its plethora of preoccupations—sickness, death, marriage, cleanliness, gender, depression, the illusory nature of time to name a few—with uncanny precision. Rated R. —NG

TRANSPORTER 3—Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is a professional pugilist, whose appeal lies mainly in his penchant for pummeling enemies while shirtless. This third installment of the Luc Besson-produced action series follows the template, serving up plenty of road rage fights in slow motion, as well as the inevitable explosions that follow. This time, Statham plays courier for a ragtag team of environmental terrorists whose scheme requires the kidnapping and transporting of the long-legged daughter of a politico. Though the first two Transporter films were brainless, they were occasionally fun; in this one, the anemic plot and inane dialogue sully the charm of Statham's likeable antihero. Rated PG-13. —KJ

TWILIGHT—Setting aside the juvie frenzy associated with Stephanie Meyer's bestselling Twilight series, fact is every couple of years another incarnation of the vampire myth rises from the grave and sinks its teeth into pop culture. Unfortunately, director Catherine Hardwicke's turgid adaptation of a tale of forbidden teen love more closely resembles the pilot for a midseason replacement on The CW. When angst-ridden Bella Swann (Kristen Stewart) relocates to the Pacific Northwest, hunky yet aloof "teen" vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) takes a liking to her and hopes his love overcomes his desire to drink her blood. Little happens in this dalliance besides mediocre acting and even worse dialogue spoken by actors who look as though they prepared for their roles by watching a One Tree Hill marathon interspersed with Abercrombie & Fitch ads. Rated PG-13. —NM

W.—Oliver Stone's W. is a restless film that exhibits a fascinating tension between earnest message movie and bombastic cartoon. At its best, W. occupies the eerie area between Bush's manipulation of information and his inability to grasp it. Josh Brolin delivers a daffy, purposefully one-note performance as George W. Bush that is simultaneously simplistic and unnerving. While much of W. is a tough slog—some stretches are generic, some predictable—Stone occasionally shows his chops as a clever director making a deceptively goofy movie that gets into some pretty complicated territory. Rated R. —NG
