New Cynical Cinema today

All new releases today

Novocaine / Dr. T and the Women double feature - Two half-assed dark "comedies" that sometimes work, and sometimes don't. There is some Farrah Fawcett nakedness in Dr. T, and some Helena Bonham Carter craziness in Novocaine, but...so what. Laura Dern is in both. Is that why they're packaged together?

Race To Witch Mountain - Could have been so much more. Then again, it stars The Rock. Also stars Annasophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig, both of whom are good.

Halloween H2O / Halloween Resurrection double feature - I get why these two are packaged together. However, H2O is a surprisingly not-sucky movie, while Resurrection is one of the worst horror movies of all time. At least Tyra Banks gets sliced up good, even if we don't get to see it.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 / Kill Bill Vol. 2 double feature - Two of my favourite movies of the past ten years packaged together on a bargain single disc. Beautiful.
