  • Moulin Rouge

    Moulin Rouge (2001)

    Rated PG-13, 135 min. Directed by Baz Luhrmann. Starring Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, John Leguizamo, Jim Broadbent and Richard Roxburgh.

    Valentine's Weeks at the Drive-In: Despite the film's rabidly excessive stylistics (or perhaps because of them), Moulin Rouge eventually sucks you in with its own brand of willful illogic and breathtaking visuals. Set in the fairy-tale Bohemia of turn-of-the-century Paris, Christian (McGregor), a penniless poet, falls madly in love with Satine (Kidman), the nightclub's star performer, a chanteuse-cum-courtesan who has a heart of gold and is an incipient consumptive. Moulin Rouge's music -- a combination of restructured modern pop tunes manhandled into clever new forms -- is only half the wonder. McGregor and Kidman, he arresting, she luminous, sing their own songs and do so surpassingly well. Luhrmann's film takes True Love very seriously, and though the film itself is hardly what I'd call serious fare, it's so enamored with the very idea of Love that only the rockiest heart could fail to crack under what amounts to one long, sustained massive musical air strike.

    When Harry Met Sally … (1989)

    Rated R, 96 min. Directed by Rob Reiner. Starring Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby.

    Valentine's Weeks at the Drive-In: It's the film that probes the ancient question of whether friends can sleep together and still remain friends. When they're as cute as Ryan or as funny as Crystal, guess what the long-term answer is.

  • "Humpback Whales 3D" (2015)

    Not rated, 49 min. Directed by Greg MacGillivray. Narrated by Ewan McGregor.

  • Deadpool

    Deadpool (2016)

    Rated R, 107 min. Directed by Tim Miller. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand and Stefan Kapicic.

    Loaded with sass, sex, and sadistic violence, Deadpool is not your youngster’s comic-book origin story. Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool is, in his own words, “super, but no hero.” He’s a chump-change mercenary (“a bad guy who fucks up worse guys”), who acquires self-regenerating powers and a horrific visage after succumbing to a purported treatment for late-stage cancer. The film is as postmodernly self-referential as it can get, littered with inside jokes which should be a hoot for the average viewer and nirvana for Marvel connoisseurs. Reynolds (having previously appeared as Wade Wilson, Deadpool’s mortal former self in X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is perfectly cast as the wisecracking Deadpool. Yet the character’s constant asides can get to be a bit much, and many sequences go on for too long. The film's climactic battle, for instance, simply becomes a ceaseless slugfest – and to little effect: With a character like Deadpool, words alone can be deadly. Read a full review of Deadpool.
