'The Three Musketeers' review - airships, explosions, and Matrix slow-mo

I vaguely remember reading The Three Musketeers when I was young and, honestly, I remember The Three Amigos a lot better. Try as I might though, I can't recall flying pirate ships with giant blimps attached to them. I didn't know the musketeers dabbled in science fiction. Paul W.S. Anderson's version of the classic trio is fairly harmless and shouldn't offend anyone, but it doesn't pay much tribute to its brand. Like the Resident Evil flicks, this movie starts out accurate, but ends up veering into the ridiculous fairly quickly. Unfortunately, it's lacking in fun as well. Mix the world of Pirates of the Caribbean with the insanity of the Resident Evil movies and the slow-mo of The Matrix and you've got 90 percent of The Three Musketeers. Add two teenage love stories and you've seen it all.

Foster and Winslet join the cast of Polanski's "God of Carnage"

A highlight of my trip to New York City earlier this year was seeing God of Carnage, a broadway show starring Lucy Liu, Janet McTeer, Dylan Baker, and one of my favorite actors, Jeff Daniels. The play takes place on a single set, where two couples meet up after their sons have a fight at school. The sit-down starts out overly civil, then it becomes a shouting match, and eventually everyone self destructs and it all goes to hell. Others liked it too--the play won three Tony awards, including Best Play.

Inglourious Basterds proves you can have your Nazis and kill 'em too (Review)

Quentin Tarantino may be lacking in some things, but its certainly not enthusiasm. Inglourious Basterds is a disgusting movie about killing & scalping Nazis; these types of movies don’t usually win anything but MTV awards for categories like “Best WTF Moment.” Yet, it is so funny, charming, and aggrandizing that I can’t help but love it.
