Coming to the big screen


Two movies begin their Oahu run tomorrow:

Rated PG-13
Susan Sarandon stars in this adaptation of Mona Simpson's powerful story of the dark side of having a colorful, eccentric, irresponsible mom. Sarandon plays the middle-aged adult trying to hold on to her youth; Natalie Portman fulfills her promise as the teen-ager forced to abandon her childhood.

Rated G
Wannabe Pokemon Master Ash Ketchum continues his quest to become the greatest trainer in the world. But when the bio-engineered Pokemon Mew Two creates a strain of Super-Pokemon, will Ash, Misty and Pikachu be able to defeat them? With the voice talents of Veronica Taylor, Racheal Lillis, Eric Stuart and Ikue Otani.

Two other movies open on Friday

Rated R
Chris Rock, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon star in a satirical passion play on faith in our time. The movie is a wild and intricate theological debate, a Sunday-school catechism session turned into a snap-crackle-and-pop thrill sermon for the mind.

Rated R
Milla Jovovich, John Malkovich, Faye Dunaway and Dustin Hoffman star. In the 15th century, against a backdrop of fear and religious persecution, France and England waged the bloody Hundred Years War. Joan (Jovovich), a French peasant girl, is called by God and joins the French army fighting against England. Her determination and spirit rally France to some important victories over England, which leads to her eventual capture and burning at the stake for heresy.
