Captivity (2007) [R] 85 minutes -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $10.75
Review-lite: Elisha Cuthbert sheds her teen angst image to take the next step toward emerging a full-fledged movie star. On that road, there would need to be some bumps. In this case, the mis-marketed, Captivity, directed by Roland Joffé from a script by the Phone Booth guy. She portrays a supermodel, abducted to fill the role of a malevolent serial killer who derives his joys by playing mind games with women he hold captive before killing them. Unfortunately, the captor vastly underestimates his prize this time, and ends up getting far more than he bargained for. "Don't judge a book by its cover", this film is far, far better than common sense would predict with brilliant psychological twists. Unfortunately, some gruesome choices and not the strongest casting possible, prevent Captivity from reaching its full potential. (click for full details and complete review)

Movie Review of License to Wed (2007) [PG-13] -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $12.25
Review-lite: You've met the girl of your dreams, and your future father-in-law has welcomed you to the family. There's only one thing between you and getting married, and his name is Reverend Frank. Ken Kwapis directs this light comedy with heart featuring Mandy Moore and John Krasinski as Sadie and Ben who subject themselves to Robin Williams's collared-in, comedic genius as their instructor and spiritual guide as they attempt to earn his pre-nuptial blessing and marry in his church. It won't be easy surviving what he's got in store for them. Fortunately, John Krasinski has brought his understated comedic talents out of "The Office" and Mandy Moore has perfected her still-looking-for-Mr.-Perfect maiden character, so the two may have a fighting chance against robotic baby twins, couple's counseling designed to create their first fight, and wedding vow books that may be a bit harder to fill than one might imagine.

Spider-Man 3 (2007) [PG-13] -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $13.25
Review-lite: With an overly ambitious, series finale-esque approach, Sam Raimi has packed a lot into two hours twenty minutes. The film is filled with great successes and minor disappointments. No doubt it's a special effect dream world that will probably play beautifully in video game form. With the themes of the duality of human nature and the need for forgiveness omnipresent, the film shows both the fun and dark side of the characters making for a film that entertains as much as it might provoke disdain. Nonetheless, if this is the final film, it has ended in good fashion, tying up loose ends and giving us most of what we wanted and needed to see. (click for full details and complete review)

Movie Review of Talk to Me (2007) [R] 118 minutes -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $14.75
Review-lite: Absolutely extraordinary are the performances of Chiwetel Ejiofor and Don Cheadle as Petey Greene and Dewey Hughes in Kasi Lemmons's stunning tribute to these real-life Washington, D.C. radio legends and the role they played in calming the city after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Over all, the film is a remarkable from nearly beginning to end drawing you into the world of P-Town as the ex-con Petey Greene takes the radio listeners by storm. The film, inspired by the true story, is absolutely worthy of a standing ovation. (click for full details and complete review)
