Stake Land Review


Very Good
Pacey, confident and enjoyably grisly, this is a full-energy thriller with an emotional undercurrent. It's a little simplistic, and never quite defines why the stalking undead are called "vampires" rather than "zombies". But it's still hugely entertaining.

After his family is killed, teen Martin (Paolo) is taken under the wing of Mister (Damici), a gruff hunter who mercilessly stalks vampire/zombies. As they cross middle America in search of a rumoured safe zone called New Eden, they meet a friendly nun (McGillis), an ex-marine (Nelson) and a hot pregnant teen (Harris). They also run afoul of an extremist religious cult led by the vicious Jebedia (Cerveris), who believes the vampires are God's judgement on society.

And he starts hunting the hunters.

Fresh Review


Weak
Acclaimed, but why? Fresh is the nickname of the prototypical urban street punk (Sean Nelson), who runs drugs for the local hoods when he isn't busy attending dogfights, witnessing murders, visiting his prostitute sister, or playing chess with his homeless father in the park. Presumably, we are meant to sympathize with Fresh because he's a chess player, and hence an intellectual, but when he launches his plan to turn the tables on his drug bosses, it's hard to rally behind him. Extremely disturbing and unnecessarily violent, Fresh plays like Spike Lee for Dummies.

American Buffalo Review


Weak
Hardly Mamet's finest play-cum-film, American Buffalo has that Mamet cadence, but none of the soul. Revolving around the pathetic attempts of two penny-ante crook wannabes and their plans to rob a coin collector, the film is circular, pedantic, and in the end, without a point -- if the picture tells us anything, it's to eschew pawn shops.

The Wood Review


OK
Another week, another coming of age story. Turns out timing can be everything, and The Wood's unfortunate release one week after the somewhat similar (but much better) American Pie will leave viewers drawing unfavorable comparisons between the two.

The story behind The Wood, as in Inglewood, California, follows three best friends on the day when one is set to be married. Of course, he's having the jitters, so they reminisce about their childhood growing up together and chasing girls, which, basically, is what they all still want to be doing.

The Wood Review


Good

In its first five minutes "The Wood" looks likeit's going to be a breaking-the-fourth-wall disaster, as Omar Epps ("TheMod Squad") narrates to camera, explainingto the audience that it's two hours and ticking until his best buddy'snuptials and the groom is AWOL.

Epps is not a good narrator -- at least at first. He lookslike he missed a rehearsal and has been stuck reading cue cards.

But the day is saved with the entrance of Richard T. Jones("Event Horizon"), as another groomsman who helpsEpps find their cold-footed friend (Taye Diggs) and talk him back to thealter.
