  • Gravity

    photo for Gravity Despite its impressive boxoffice take (past the $250 million mark in the U.S.) and its technical wizardry, Alfonso Cuaron's tale of a medical engineer (Sandra Bullock) on her first shuttle mission who is stranded alone in the emptiness of space after her ship is destroyed is really a slight piece of work. Yes, the special effects are breathtaking -- and the 3D stupendous (I can't remember the last time I dodged objects coming off the screen -- must have been during "It Came From Outer Space") and I certainly feared for Bullock's life as she tried to figure out a way to return to the Earth. But there's no depth here, no greater backdrop for the characters, no context, no morals to be made, no social issues to be explored (subtexts that are the hallmark of all great science fiction). It's "All Is Lost" set in outer space, a gripping, exciting, scary and nerve shattering tale. But it's still a video game for the big screen: Fun while it lasts ... but afterwards, there's nothing to take home. If "Gravity" had appeared in print before it made it's way to the big screen, it would have appeared as a short story -- there's not enough substance here to sustain anything more. Co-stars George Clooney as a doomed astronaut. Extras: "Collision Point: The Race to Clean Up Space" (narrated by Ed Harris), "Aningaaq" short film by Jonas Cuaron ("Gravity's" co-writer), "Gravity Mission Control," shot breakdowns, "Gravity: Silent Space Version," "Sandra's Surprise!" Vitals: Director: Alfonso Cuaron. Stars: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris (voice). 2013, CC, MPAA rating: PG-13, 91 min., Drama, Box office gross: $251.486 million, Warner. 3 stars

  • Nebraska

    photo for Nebraska I'm not quite sure whether director Alexander Payne is laughing with or at the characters in his critically acclaimed film about the perambulations of Woody Grant, a booze-addled old man, and his estranged son, as they travel from Montana to Nebraska to claim the "fortune" the senior citizen thinks he "won" as per a Publishers Clearing House-type sweepstakes letter. Along the way they stop off at Woody's home town, Hawthorne, Nebraska, where he meets up with relatives, friends and enemies, and settles some old scores. The film is riddled with unlikable characters (from lead Bruce Dern on down to most of the supporting actors), silly sequences and implausible situations. Shot in black and white (for no apparent reason other than to show how monochromatic the lives of these middle-Americans are), the film co-stars Will Forte as Woody's son, June Squibb as Woody's long-suffering wife, and Stacy Keach as a grudge from the past. Blu-ray Extras: "The Making of Nebraska" six-part featurette: "The Script," "Cast and Characters," "Locations," "Shooting in Black and White," "Working with Alexander," "A Film Family." Vitals: Director: Alexander Payne. Stars: Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb, Stacy Keach, Bob Odenkirk, Rance Howard, Mary Louise Wilson, Tim Driscoll, Kevin Kunkel, Angela McEwan, Devin Ratray. 2013, CC, MPAA rating: R, 115 min., Comedy, Box office gross: $9.861 million, Paramount. 3 stars

  • Thor: The Dark World

    photo for You should know by now that I'm no big fan of comic book heroes ported to the big screen (exceptions: The Dark Knight and The Avengers) and this second Thor big-screen adventure gave me endless headaches as I tried to figure out what was going on. Yes, I watched the first Thor but, without any comic book cheat sheets in front of me, I got lost and confused right off the bat -- it took far too long to understand the deal with the Dark World and Malekith and the Aeather. But even after that light bulb went off over my head, I had other issues with the film. To wit: 1) What's with Natalie Portman? Her acting here is pretty wooden -- we understand there were creative issues between Portman and the filmmakers and, because of her contract, she reluctantly took part in the production. But still, when all is said and done, she's not love interest material -- she has no sex appeal. But Chris Hemsworth, on the other hand ... 2) This film gives elves a bad name. 3) There's drop-dead obnoxious "comedy relief" with Kat Dennings and Stellan Skarsgård; how could the talented Swedish actor stoop so low as to run around in his underwear? 4) And please, what's with Algrim/Kurse? In the end, of course, it's all about Thor saving the universe from the vengeful Malekith who returns to plunge everything back into darkness -- and about the battle scenes and fights. Oh well. Extras: Extended and deleted scenes; gag reel; exclusive look at "Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier"; "A Brothers' Journey: Thor & Loki"; "Scoring Marvel's Thor: The Dark World With Brian Tyler"; commentary with director Alan Taylor, producer Kevin Feige, actor Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau; more. Vitals: Director: Alan Taylor. Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgard, Alice Krige. 2013, CC, MPAA rating: PG-13, 111 min., Action-Adventure, Box office gross: $200.766 million, Disney. 3 stars
