With several high-speed chase scenes that outrank any outside The Transporter movies for visceral force and spectacle, Fast & Furious is a stripped-down version of The Fast and The Furious, the first movie in this demolition derby of a franchise. All the characters return in this fourth entry. (Hence the clever tag line: "New Model. Original Parts.") Paul Walker again plays the pivotal role of Brian O'Conner. Then he was an undercover cop who was the key to a joint police-FBI investigation into a string of truck hijackings.

Tropical Storm Chantal is churning through the Lesser Antilles islands and possibly heading toward the East Coast, a path that is more common in the heart of hurricane season than in early July. Not only that, but the storm is a bit "early" to begin with: The third named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season comes, on average, around Aug. 13. As of Tuesday morning, Chantal was about 85 miles east of St. Lucia with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. The National Hurricane Center's forecast cone takes it across Hispaniola, through the Bahamas and a few hundred miles east of Florida's Atlantic coast by next weekend.

Writer-director Wayne Kramer (The Cooler) has a taste for the grotesque without a knack for it. In Running Scared, he tries to create a gangland fairytale out of blood and bluster and crippled flights of fancy. As Alex might have put it in A Clockwork Orange, Kramer employs the old ultra-violence real savage. But he surrounds it with whimsical touches, like calling his on-the-run hero, a low-level mob guy, Joey Gazelle - and casting Paul Walker in the role, an actor so devoid of human resonance he might as well be named for an antelope.

The determinedly cynical needn't bother, but just about everyone else should love Eight Below, in which eight supremely gorgeous sled dogs are forced to make do for themselves on the frozen Antarctic field after being left behind by their owners. Sure, the movie has human stars: Paul Walker is the guide who cares for the dogs. Jason Biggs is his doofus friend (who will surely come through in a pinch). Bruce Greenwood is the scientist whose mania for discovery forces everyone to take chances they shouldn't.

If you've ever been stuck in tourist gridlock while trying to see Old Faithful erupt, you might not think that shutting it down is all that bad an idea. But corking the geyser is the evil plot at the heart of "Meet the Deedles," a stupid comedy that almost gets by on good-naturedness.Almost. The movie takes too long to get to where we all know it's going, and provides too few surprises on the way and too little payoff at the end. It's harmless, but it's not exactly rewarding.The Deedles are 18-year-old surfer-dude twins Stew (Steve Van Wormer)
