Films Opening

Acts of Worship Experience the heartwarming tale of a young,
well-educated, middle-class white girl in the throes of a brutal
drug addiction. Well, actually, it’s not really that
heartwarming. She befriends a weird photographer, though. At
Madstone: 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, 7:00, 9:00.

 

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Charlie Kaufman writes
good screenplays. He looks like Ethan Coen, who also writes good
screenplays. This movie stars Jim Carrey. This description has no
direction whatsoever. Check out the movie anyway. At Showcase:
Noon, 2:25, 4:50, 7:40, 10:10, 12:25 (Fri. and Sat.). At Madstone:
1:05, 3:15, 7:00, 9:45.

 

Osama This is quite a redeeming lesson about why young girls
shouldn’t masquerade as boys (although this one does it to
work to support her family): the Taliban may round you up and force
you to be one of their fighting minions. At Madstone: 1:20, 3:20,
5:20, 7:20, 9:20.

 

Films Holding

50 First Dates Rob Schneider seems to have a proclivity for
screwing up potentially good comedies. He ruined his own career
long ago, and now, in the spirit of good fun, he’s trying to
take some of his former SNL co-stars down with him. At Showcase:
12:10, 2:20, 4:40, 6:50, 9:00, 11:10. At Madstone: 1:15, 3:15,
5:15, 7:15, 9:15.

 

Dawn of the Dead This is an ultra-violent horror movie with Ving
Rhames. If that doesn’t say enough, then shame on you. At
Showcase: 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:50, 3:20, 4:10, 5:10, 5:40, 7:00,
7:30, 8:00, 9:15, 9:45, 10:15, 11:30, Midnight, 12:30 (Fri. and
Sat.).

 

Hidalgo Viggo was good as the King, but this is getting carried
away. His talent was better used as the drill sergeant in
“G.I. Jane”. At Showcase: 12:25, 3:40, 6:30, 9:20,
12:15 (Fri. and Sat.). At Madstone: 1:30, 4:15, 7:05, 9:45.

 

The Passion of the Christ Mel Gibson has finally discovered a
productive outlet for his violent tendencies. And because of it,
he’s making more money than ever before. At Showcase: 12:15,
12:45, 1:15, 1:45, 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, 5:45, 6:35, 7:05, 7:35,
9:05, 9:35, 10:05. At Madstone: 1:00, 4:00, 7:00, 9:45.

 

Secret Window This movie could tell us one of two things: 1)
Johnny Depp is so good that he can almost single-handedly save a
terrible Stephen King story; or 2) Stephen King’s recent
works are so pitiful that even the great Johnny Depp can’t
save them completely. At Showcase: 12:35 AM, 1:05, 2:45, 3:15,
4:55, 5:25, 5:45, 7:15, 7:45, 8:15, 9:25, 9:55, 10:25, 11:40,
12:10, 12:40. At Madstone: 1:15, 3:20, 5:25, 7:30, 9:35.

 

Spartan If you like confusing plots and Val Kilmer when fat,
then this is the movie for you, friend. At Showcase: 9:10, 11:25.
At Madstone: 1:00, 5:20, 9:40.

 

Starsky & Hutch Why is Ben Stiller so charitable as to join
Owen Wilson for a movie? Stiller wrote “The Cable Guy,”
for crying out loud. He should be accompanied by better talent than
a goon with a thick surfer dialect. At Showcase: 12:40, 1:10, 2:55,
3:25, 5:05, 5:35, 7:20, 7:50, 9:30, 10:00, 11:50, 12:20.

 

Taking Lives After one of the worst debuts ever, why is
“Twisted” still in theaters? Oh, right, it’s the
other unbelievably crappy cop thriller starring a delectable
actress to emerge in the past couple of weeks. At Showcase: 12:20,
12:50, 2:40, 3:10, 5:00, 5:30, 7:25, 7:55, 9:50, 10:20, 12:05,
12:35.

 

Twisted This movie doesn’t even deserve a witty
description. Let’s just hope that Sam Jackson has better
taste in the future. At Showcase: 12:35 (Thurs. and Fri.), 1:10,
3:20, 5:35, 8:10, 10:25.

 

What Alice Found Watching a lost — literally and
figuratively — young woman get taken away by two crazed old
people in a camper sounds like loads of fun, eh? At Madstone: 3:15,
7:30.
