Heart rules over mind/matter

Movie: A.I. Artificial Intelligence

Posted on Fri, Jun 29, 2001 at 4:00 AM

***1/2
Our Rating: 3.50 By autumn, when the bucket o' corn known as Pearl Harbor has been consumed and all but forgotten, audiences may still be chewing over the meaning and merits of "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence." The ambitious, surprising science-fiction piece (inspired by a Brian Aldiss short story) was developed by...

Cross-cultural romance doesn't dig

Movie: crazy/beautiful

Posted on Fri, Jun 29, 2001 at 4:00 AM

***
Our Rating: 3.00 As a rule, the teen-romance genre amounts to a never-ending procession of generic titles, stereotypes, cringe-worthy dialogue, well-worn plot contours, limp direction and blander-than-bland performances by the likes of Freddie Prinze Jr. Rare is the youth-targeted love story that holds much appeal for anyone older than high-school...

Complex drama hits hard

Movie: Baby Boy

Posted on Fri, Jun 29, 2001 at 4:00 AM

**
Our Rating: 2.00 Why has John Singleton's "Baby Boy" been marketed as a sequel of sorts to his striking 1991 debut, "Boyz in the Hood"? The latter was a hard-hitting, emotionally complex drama about growing up young, black and troubled on the tough streets of South Central Los Angeles. Baby...

Review - Weezer

Artist: Weezer

Weezer Label: Geffen Media: CD Format: Album WorkNameSort: Weezer Much has been made about how the new Weezer album differs from the band's two previous efforts. But the real question is how does "Weezer" stand on its own, removed from the band's past? The claims that the 2001 release --...

Review - Singularity

Artist: Joe Morris

Posted on Thu, Jun 28, 2001 at 4:00 AM

Singularity Label: AUM Fidelity Media: CD Format: Album WorkNameSort: Singularity Compared to most avant-jazz guitarists, Joe Morris is practically a monk. He plays a Gibson Les Paul but favors a Jim Hallish sound, free of any notable effects or amplifier push. So armed, he sidesteps chords and digs into a...

Review - The Invisible Man

Artist: Mark Eitzel

Posted on Thu, Jun 28, 2001 at 4:00 AM

The Invisible Man Label: RCA Media: CD Format: Album WorkNameSort: The Invisible Man Former American Music Club miserablist Mark Eitzel doesn't trod the beaten poet path in illuminating his mopey gaze. Maybe that's why, despite standard indie arrangements, his songs bring as much joy to the thinking sad set as...

Fine dining is a series of combinations of tastes, textures, the feel of the room, and the quality of service. If any one factor is off, it affects how you react to all the others. Of course, if the food is extraordinary, it's a lot easier to forgive an uninformed...
