The movie version of Love in the Time of Cholera doesn't have the drive or the dynamism to be an artistic nightmare. It's more like a dead dream, the kind that leaves nothing more behind in the light of day than a sickly cloud. The director, Mike Newell, and the screenwriter, Ronald Harwood, have taken novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez's sustained flight of grand passion and analyzed the swooping life right out of it. They've thought their way into an adaptation that needed to be intuitive and "felt," like Marquez's mighty marvel of a book.

The next sound you hear: Musical talent to try their hand at ringing in 'N-B-C' B.B. King, the B-52s, the Flaming Lips, T.I. and Clint Black are among the musical acts NBC has invited to create their own take on the three-note chime for the Peacock network. The artists will appear in on-air promotions for NBC's "Chime In" branding campaign. King will be seen, for example, adding a twist to the G-E-C notes on his guitar, while the B-52s have come up with a more dance-oriented take on the chimes.

No wonder The Great Raid sat on the shelf for more than two years. It's damaged goods, fit only to tumble out as part of the "change in management" Miramax fire sale. The Great Raid is about a nearly forgotten corner of World War II history, a daring U.S. Army Rangers rescue of Bataan Death March survivors in the Philippines. The largest surrender of U.S. forces ever had led to thousands interned in POW camps all over the Philippines - those who survived a barbaric march to the camps, a march their Japanese captors intended would kill them.

They met at Columbia Law School, and something clicked between Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne. Now, on Oct. 5, during the New York Film Festival, they'll underwrite part of the event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their New Line Cinema.

There Julia Roberts was on Oscar night, regally ascending the stairs to the stage as the world watched -- when all of a sudden her beau Benjamin Bratt rushed up, adjusted the train of her Valentino gown and scurried back to his seat. This scene at last month's awards ceremony was significant -- and not just because Roberts won the Best Actress Oscar. Just as important was the fact that as Roberts was poised to rule the world for her few allocated minutes, the public witnessed Bratt being only too happy to perform the role of a supportive, albeit less-accomplished, boyfriend.

SUN SCORE **1/2 Abandon tags Katie Holmes as a talented actor with surprising range and vast, untapped potential - so much, in fact, that watching her, one can almost overlook the film's many flaws. Almost. For as good as Holmes is, and as comfortably as co-star Benjamin Bratt wears the role of troubled police detective (harking back to his Law & Order days), their performances are still in service to a thriller with an ending that becomes clear within the first 20 minutes, all played out on what must be America's most depressingly un-photogenic college campuses.
