NEW YORK – Charlie's Angels are hot, rent "28 Days Later" today and the Douglases embarrass themselves in today's Foxlight.
It couldn't possibly live up to the hype and it didn't. But that didn't stop me from having a ball with the gals in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle." (search) I'll be slow-moing a couple of those dance numbers. Bernie Mac could have been funnier and Demi Moore crashed the party in a way that ultimately hurt the film. Forget all that. This is just a great ride with three incredibly hot women. And if there's a scene you don't like, wait 10 seconds and it's over.
Next, it's the year of gore and guts with "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Kill Bill: Vol 1," but the surprise hit that started the blood flow was the independent "28 Days Later." (search)
This zombie Xanadu is easily one of the best movies of the year. Forget the over-hyped alternate ending and just bask in the glow of grade-A gruesome. Monkey bites a guy. Another guy wakes up in a hospital 28 days later. And he's the last man on earth. Or is he? Don't miss a moment of this mayhem.
Finally, something you can miss and it's a shame called "It Runs in the Family." (search) The Douglas clan -- Kirk, Michael and one of the other sons prove what runs in this family is the ability to pick very bad scripts. The saddest part is Kirk and Michael have been looking for something to act in together for years. Unfortunately, they found it.
