Lakeview Terrace

Not bad, but still basically a B-movie about an interracial couple dueling with a bigoted, possibly psychotic neighbor who happens to be a cop “goosed” by making the evil bigot a black guy. Well performed and subtle up to a point, but hard to distinguish from any other potboiler outside of the hooks. Of course, given that LaBute’s last movie was “The Wicker Man” maybe vanishing into the background is a good move for him.

    Still, they have to get credit for confronting the existence of black racism. While blatantly obvious to anyone who listens to a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, or Jeremiah Wright, it’s basically taboo to call it what it is.

    Oh, and just in case you were wondering, <>Mega Man 9<> fucking rocks! Besides being a damn good game in its own right, it’s a masterpiece of retro fanservice and a follower of the classic Nintendo Hard tradition. Word of advice though, use a Classic Controller, or this game will hand you your own ass.
