An Inconvenient Truth PG Documentary A documentary on Al Gore’s campaign to make the issue of global warming a recognized problem worldwide. When I said I was going to a press screening of “An Inconvenient Truth,” a friend said, “Al Gore talking about the environment! Bor…ing!” This is not a boring film. The director, Davis Guggenheim, uses words, images and Gore’s concise litany of facts to build a film that is fascinating and relentless. In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film (4 stars) — Roger EbertRated PG (for mild thematic elements) Running time 1 hour 45 minutes Cars G Animated Voices: Paul Newman, Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Cheech Marin, George CarlinLightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. On route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town’s offbeat characters — including Sally (a snazzy 2002 Porsche voiced by Bonnie Hunt), Doc Hudson (a 1951 Hudson Hornet with a mysterious past, voiced by Paul Newman) and Mater ( a rusty but trusty tow truck voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) — who help him realize that there are more imprtant things than trophies, fame and sponsorships.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHESTReview: “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” – Yo ho, yo ho … yeah, that’s about all you get. It is physically impossible to think of any pirate puns after sitting through this sequel and having all traces of energy and enthusiasm sucked out. Even more cartoonish than the original film from 2003 – a difficult feat to achieve – the latest installment in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise often feels as if it should star the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. And those moments are the funniest, liveliest parts. The rest is just bloated – and, like its predecessor, numbingly overlong. Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are back, as are director Gore Verbinski and writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. The plot this time focuses on our heroes’ misadventures as they search for Davy Jones’ famous hidden chest. In theory, the special effects are the allure, but they feel redundant. And the thrilling unpredictability of watching Depp do his kinda-gay, kinda-drunk Keith Richards shtick as Captain Jack Sparrow is completely gone. Like everything else about this film, we’ve seen it before. PG-13 for intense sequences of adventure violence, including frightening images. 153 min. Two stars out of four.- Christy Lemire, AP Movie CriticSUPERMAN RETURNS Cast: Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, Kevin SpaceyReview: “Superman Returns” is everything you’d want it to be. It’s reverential of the source material, yet a unique film all its own. It’s steeped in decadent art-deco mood and details, yet completely current. It’s joyous with the possibility of discovery, yet deeply moving in its melancholy. It should satisfy purists and attract new converts. But most importantly for a summer blockbuster, it’s just outright thrilling. With technology having vastly improved since the original “Superman” from 1978, director Bryan Singer has constructed a visual marvel. Having infused the first two “X-Men” movies with equal amount of dazzle and heart, Singer shows he’s the ideal choice to take over the beloved franchise. And yet, there’s something softer, sweeter, warmer about this “Superman” than its predecessors, both in its tone and its performances. Sort of a sequel to 1980’s “Superman II,” the new film takes a little while to get going, but begins with the Man of Steel (Brandon Routh) returning to Metropolis after a five-year absence. Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) is now the mother of a young son with her fiance (James Marsden). And Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey) is out of prison with plans to create his own continent. PG-13 for some intense action violence. 157 min. Three and a half stars out of four.- Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic CLICK Cast: Adam Sandler, Kate Beckinsale, Christopher Walken Adam Sandler portrays Michael Newman, a family man whose busy career as an architect doesn’t leave much time for his wife, Donna (Kate Beckinsale), and two kids.
