Director: Amanda Micheli. With Zoe Bell, Jeannie Epper, Lucy Lawless, Quentin Tarantino. (81 min.)
Sterritt *** Entertaining documentary about stuntwomen who do risky business for a living, standing in for everyone from "Xena: Warrior Princess" to Uma Thurman in the "Kill Bill" movies. They had to leap, plunge, and crash into a male-dominated profession, and the movie shows how family and sheer derring-do have helped them along the way.
Director: Hal Hartley. With Sabrina Lloyd, Bill Sage, Tatiana Abracos, James Urbaniak. (84 min.)
Sterritt *** One of the few truly independent filmmakers with an ongoing career, Hartley dives into science-fiction allegory with this story about a future when consumerism is the law and counterrevolutionaries want to fight it any way they can. There's heavy influence from the "Brave New World" brand of dystopian fantasy, but engaging performances and a stylized visual approach lend it originality.
Director: Jaume Serra. With Elisha Cuthbert, Jared Padalecki, Paris Hilton, Chad Michael Murray. (105 min.)
Sterritt *** This remake of the 1953 horror classic, minus Vincent Price and the 3-D effects, brings a group of college kids to a haunted town where wax rules, along with terror, derangement, and other nasty things. As a frightfest it's better than today's average.
Director: Ridley Scott. With Orlando Bloom, Eva Green, David Thewlis, Jeremy Irons. (138 min.)
Sterritt ** See review.
Director: Chris Kennedy. With John Howard, Alyssa McClelland, Gyton Grantley, Rebecca Frith. (94 min.)
