    War of the Worlds

    ★★½

    Stephen Spielberg remakes a sci-fi classic in Roland Emmerich's image with War of the Worlds.

    World's worst dad, Ray (Tom Cruise), is having an unusually bad day. He has the kids for the weekend, which wouldn't be so bad if his emo-leaning son (Justin Chatwin) didn't hate his guts and his precocious daughter (Dakota Fanning) wasn't smarter than him and didn't let him know it whenever possible.

    3000 Miles to Graceland

    ★★★

    I'm a simple man. I see Courteney Cox's thong poking out of her pants, I'm happy. I see Ice-T twirling upside down, brandishing two AK-47s while some Spineshank blasts away in the background, I'm ecstatic.
