42

A solid hit.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In chronicling the real-life tale of Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947 when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, 42 is schmaltzy, sentimental and shameless. There is no dabbling in highfalutin niceties like subtext or nuance. Writer-director Brian Helgeland, who penned the hardly simplistic L.A. Confidential, keeps his focus simple and is content to let his hero worship fly.

Dark Angel

The high-def release comes in peace.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
When did 1990's I Come in Peace become Dark Angel? More importantly, why? Did some porno cop its title? Now people will confuse it with that one TV series Jessica Alba did for James Cameron before she became a movie star.

Rush

Ron Howard's latest is a crash course in filmmaking that reeks of burnt rubber.


Action

Louis Fowler
Rush isn’t about the much-loved Canadian power-prog trio. Sadly.

Brian Haas / Matt Chamberlain — Frames


Jazz

Zach Hale
Here’s an interesting fact about Frames, the new album from Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey mastermind Brian Haas and drummer Matt Chamberlain: If you pre-ordered the release, Haas — a Tulsa native — will record or play live at a show an improvisational piece based on your astrological chart.

Dressed to swill.


Thriller

Rod Lott

I eagerly await Brian De Palma's comeback. A finely composed disappointment, Passion is not it.
