THE SALINA JOURNAL encore! FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2001 D3 ALONG CAME A SPIDER *• CENTRAL RATED R Morgan Freeman returns as Dr. Alex Cross, hero of "Kiss the Girls," in another thriller where a mad criminal constructs a diabolical puzzle for him to solve. BEFORE NIGHT FALLS •••1/2 ART CENTER CINEMA RATED R The life and death of Reinaldo Arenas, a poet, novelist and homosexual in Castro's Cuba, which made his life a misery. But the movie doesn't make him a gay martyr; instead, it sees him as a man who chooses to live at a difficult angle to society and might have been about as unhappy anywhere. With Javier Bardem as Arenas, and two cameos by Johnny Depp. BLOW CENTRAL RATED R The based-on-fact story of George Jung, who started by dealing a little weed and at one point was supplying 85 percent of the cocaine in America. Johnny Depp plays Jung, Paul Reubens is his business partner and "Good Fellas" star Ray Liotta is his father. BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY CENTRAL RATED R Renee Zellweger stars as a 32- year-old Londoner who smokes, drinks and eats too much and determines to reform herself and find the Right Man. Hugh Grant and Colin Firth play the candidates. CROCODILE DUNDEE IN LOS ANGELES MID-STATE RATED PG Another retread of the original formula, in which Croc pits his genial naivete and utter competence against the hazards of the big city. Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski are back in a story about a scam by a Hollywood production company ENEMY AT THE GATES CENTRAL RATED R In the ruins of Stalingrad in 1942, two snipers wage a deadly duel. Jude Law plays the Russian, and Ed Harris is the Nazi. FREDDY GOT FINGERED No STARS CENTRAL RATED R Tom Green as a manic, obnoxious, hostile retard in a movie about urine, semen, licking wounds, wearing bloody animal skins and swinging newborn babies by their umbilical cords. This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel — it doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels. JOE DIRT MID-STATE RATED PG-13 Another gross scatological entry in the current season of Hollywood vulgarity. David Spade stars as a white trash orphan who tours the country like a low-rent Forrest Gump. JOSIE ANDTHE PUSSYCATS 1/2* CENTRAL RATED PG-13 Would-be comedy about a prefab girl band that is not dumber than the Spice Girls but as dumb as the Spice Girls, which is dumb enough. POKEMON 3 CENTRAL RATED G The show has two parts — a short about Pikachu and the main movie in which Ash and his buddies rescue his mother from a flying, lionlike creature. SOMEONE LIKE YOU CENTRAL RATED PG-13 Ashley Judd plays a woman who explains male sexual behavior with the Old Cow, New Cow Theory Greg Kinnear plays the guy who leaves his old cow for her, and Hugh Jackman is a guy who likes a new cow every night. SPY KIDS •••1/2 CENTRAL RATED PG Antonio Banderas and Caria Gugino play enemy spies who fall in love and marry When they're kidnapped, it's up to their kids (Aiexa Vega and Daryl Sahara) to rescue them, In a colorful, cheerful, inventive movie.
