Hostel: Part II (2007) [R] -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $3.00
Review-lite: One of the most dreadful films ever made, Eli Roth's Hostel: Part II serves up more of the same. There's no accounting for Quentin Tarantino's support of this or the first film. The story is without redemption, purposeless, and morally indignant. There's no reason to see the films and they make no positive contribution to the genre. The only emotion this second part evokes is dread. It wasn't terrifying. It wasn't scary. It was simply dreadful. (click for full details and complete review)

Meet The Robinsons (2007) [G] -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $13.25
Review-lite: Disney's animated film, Meet the Robinsons is a Stephen J. Anderson film based on the short book A Day with Wilbur Robinson by William Joyce. The film's story is about an orphaned boy genius inventor named Lewis (voiced by Daniel Hansen and Jorday Fry) whose dreams of getting adopted are clouded when a mysterious boy from the future named Wilbur arrives to protect him from the villainous Bowler Hat Man. A subsequent trip to the future and meeting with Wilbur's family gives Lewis the family he's always dreamed of, though the story seems borderline pointless and misguided, and the characters seem overdrawn, confusing, and hapless. That is until the secrets are finally revealed and the resulting in a spectacular CGI film achievement. Though the villain may be too frightening for younger children, the film overall carries some wonderful messages that should stick with children a very long time.

Mr. Brooks (2007) [R] -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $13.50
Review-lite: A return with an update to the thriller twisty classics of the 80s, Mr. Brooks raises the adrenalin levels as his wicked addition to painstakingly well-planned murders leads the Portland Man of the Year played by Keving Costner and William Hurt to a close call when a nosy neighbor Mr. Smith (Dane Cook) catches him in the act. Adding to his complications, super detective Atwood (Demi Moore) is hot on his trail. Smart performances and glossy elegance to the professional dimensions of the film make it one of the best thrillers to come along in ages handily outwitting the recent Fracture, for example. The drawbacks to the film are a morally repugnant center that should not be delivered to children under 17 despite the [R]-rating. (click for full details and complete review)
