Opening Films

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & The Break-Up & r & It's a sexy mess when Brooke and Gary break up but refuse to move out of the condo they share. Gary's slovenly buddies, played by Jason Bateman (!) and John Favreau come to his aid while Brooke's ambiguously gay brother Richard comes to hers. Lines like "go see ... my personal waxer at the spa. Ask her for the Telly Savalas" have us cautiously optimistic. Rated PG-13





The Omen & r & Horror films offer direct access to spiritual truth. Strange shit happens and we cope, often by screaming and dying. It's written across human history and embedded deep in the codes of horror. Just ask Mia Farrow. She fathered Satan in Rosemary's Baby and now appears as the nanny who raises the devil incarnate in the nearly scene-by-scene remake of The Omen. Rated R
