The New World


Four stars

Reflections in the river, giant ships coursing to new land.  A wonderous, arty Pocahontas movie.  More sci-fi in it’s lyricism than that other Pocahontas movie Avatar.

Extraordinary Critters and How They Might Best Be Located


Two stars

Super dark Who Framed Roger Rabbit cgi.  Weird child molestation undercurrents.  Colin Farrell meet-ups in seedy alleyways with abused boys.  Cute echindas & naked mole rats.  Lotsa wizards shouting, “Evaporota!”  Hollywood A-listers transform into other A-listers.
