|Daybreakers (Lionsgate) A really cool little B-movie and a nice addition to the vampire film canon.
The movie's central conceit - that the vampires are the abiding population and the humans the
endangered species - is a delicious one. Ethan Hawke, Sam Neil and Willem Dafoe (who adds a
neat, often hilarious cameo as a wild eyed vampire hunter) enact this nifty little action thriller -
complete with ghoulish SFX and a gleaming look that owes more than a nod to Gattaca, the futuristic
sci-fi thriller Hawke made with Uma Thurman (and that's definitely one to put on the list of Must
Avatar (Fox) It's here! It's blue! And it doesn't look half bad in 2-D! Though I still think the
movie falters after the dazzling first half, this is clearly a Must Have for the collection (no special
features - that will come in a deluxe edition most likely with bonus footage, etc. at some point).
The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (Sony) Including this in a line-up of mainstream movies
is my little in-joke - but only halfway. But I do think Terry Gilliam's latest wildly inventive, eye
popping fantasy film (Heath Ledger's final movie) will be enjoyed by audiences who give it a chance
(it's a tad slow and a tad thin in the story department). Naturally, seeing Ledger's final work adds an
undertow of sadness that adds gravitas to the movie which is a genuine pleasure for those with a
taste for the offbeat and will make a nice surprise for those who give it a chance. And the addition of
Jude Law and Johnny Depp certainly helps give it mainstream audience cred.
Edge of Darkness (Warner Home Video) Mel Gibson returns to the Cineplex in a role and with a
movie that made him an 80s action star. There's violence galore in this story of a cop turned
vigilante when his daughter is murdered in front of his eyes. For those looking for a meaty action
thriller, as I noted in my review, this is a good bet.
