Cracks

Go Green with this strong psychological thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Eva Green hit moviegoers’ collective radar as eye candy in “The Dreamers” and “Casino Royale,” which makes her stellar performance in “Cracks” that much more remarkable.

Perfect Sense

Love means never having to say ‘you’re sorry’ ... because your partner can’t hear you, anyway.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
If Contagion were exported to Scotland — and injected with a dose of speculative fiction in customs — the result might make Perfect Sense. The film fails only to fit snugly into one genre, being a thriller, a romance and sci-fi, but sci-fi only in the sense that Children of Men and Never Let Me Go were. This is equally brainy, and maybe just a smidge less bleak.

Dark Shadows

The vampire comedy doesn't suck.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of this summer's biggest bombs, Dark Shadows is only a disappointment if you expect a straight take on the 1960s Gothic soap opera. Then again, the TV series is such the definition of niche-cult that most moviegoers didn't know what to make of it. While I would have preferred to see Tim Burton go horror with the material — more Sleepy Hollow, less Beetlejuice — I still found the quasi-spoof comedy to be a mild delight.
