Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson play two of the nicest, most literate hit men you'd ever want to meet in Irish playwright Martin McDonagh's In Bruges. Tightly scripted and intricately plotted, the buddy film manages the neat two-step of being simultaneously profane and engaging. Think of it as Pulp Fiction with an Irish brogue and without the jumbled timeline. But In Bruges is more than simply another film looking to recapture the magic Quentin Tarantino unleashed on movie screens 14 years ago. With smart dialogue, winning performances and multidimensional characters, it's the sort of film demanding audiences crave - but with enough action to keep everyone happy.

The QUESTION Miami Vice was all the rage in the '80s. How does Michael Mann's movie version stack up against the hit TV show? you're such a critic WHAT YOU SAY Quite honestly, I did not feel the buddy connection between Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx's characters, nor between Colin Farrell and his love interest Gong Li. In fact, I thought that Gong Li's character was flat in most scenes. The scenery and some of the cinematography was awesome. I did see the film at The Senator, which even in the case of a "B" film, it's one of the best places in Baltimore, along with The Charles to experience a film.

In Robert Towne's adaptation of John Fante's 1939 novel Ask the Dust, H.L. Mencken advises the hero, aspiring novelist Arturo Bandini (Colin Farrell), not to worry over "anxieties about your limited experience with life in general and women in particular. ... Either you're in front of the typewriter writing or you're out in the world having experiences. Therefore since you need to write and you need to have experiences to write about - you have to learn to do more with less. And doing more with less is, in a word, Mr. Bandini, what writing is all about."

Miami Vice, the new-millennium movie version of the seminal '80s TV hit, packs hard-grained texture and tingling moods into a bullet-riddled scenario. It sheds the series' famous and influential pastel look and plunges its cast of villains and warriors into the 21st century. Colin Farrell, a brooder with a glint in his eye, doesn't mimic either Don Johnson's heat or his cool as Sonny Crockett: He makes the role his own with an enigmatic volatility that fills the screen. And Jamie Foxx as Crockett's partner, Ricardo Tubbs, gives the franchise a huge upgrade from Philip Michael Thomas.

Of Woody Allen's recent films, both Anything Else (2003) and Match Point (2005) showed welcome signs of life, hints of virtuosity and resources yet untapped. So let's assume those, not the tired and resolutely uninvolving Cassandra's Dream, represent Allen at the dawn of the 21st century. Allen's latest, his 42nd effort as a director, is the work of an artist devoid of ideas and energy. Perfunctorily staged and lazily written, it comes to life in only the briefest of spurts, usually when the ever-reliable Tom Wilkinson is on-screen.

Pastels were in and so were white shoes. T-shirts and skinny ties were all the rage. Socks, on the other hand, were out, out, out. The rule-busting costumes in the TV show Miami Vice set fashion trends for men like few other programs have and still affect fashion today. "It's hard to overestimate the impact of the TV show in terms of fashion, and not just because it introduced the world to pastels and wearing shoes with no socks," says Tyler Thoreson, executive editor of Men.Style.com.

THE NEW WORLD / / New Line Home Video / / / $27.98 In his remarkable The New World, writer-director Terrence Malick creates the best kind of latter-day "trip movie." He expands the heart and the mind through the eye. His vision of the founding of the Virginia colony at Jamestown in 1607 and the evolution of its savior, Pocahontas, from Indian princess to British tobacco-grower's wife, is both disorienting and revelatory, and, in the end, quite wonderful. Malick surrounds his players in a dense sensory environment, with the happy result that a viewer can experience a shift in history with the skin-prickling directness of a change of season.

Before famed director Terrence Malick picked Q'Orianka Kilcher to play Pocahontas in his new movie, the young actress knew the American legend only as the raven-haired babe piloting her canoe through the Disney animated feature. Kilcher is, after all, only 15. Now, after shooting The New World with Colin Farrell (who plays colonial explorer and Pocahontas romancer John Smith), she says she feels a deep kinship with her character. "John Smith was an explorer of new worlds," Kilcher says.
