By Roz Laws THE first series was a huge hit, so it's no surprise the lavish costume drama The Tudors returns to our screens this week. It may not be very accurate, frequently departing wildly from historical fact - for example, Cardinal Wolsey was not imprisoned and he didn't commit suicide. But its sexy, stylish and fastpaced formula went down a bomb in America, where it was nominated for two Golden Globes. BBC2 viewing figures weren't shabby, either, with more than three million - a...

By Miranda C.R. White "Journey to the Center of the Earth" opened last weekend, and I have one word for it - unbelievable. Literally. Not only were there cartoon birds in the movie, but there were dinosaurs eating piranha out in the middle of the ocean that is supposedly in the middle of the earth and giant flytraps attempted to choke and eat the adventurers when they on their way to a boiling river. Talk about fantasy. The movie started off with Professor Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser)...

By Michael Smith, Tulsa World, Okla. Jul. 12--The adventure is so rarely rousing, and the attempts at comedy so often flat, that a new film version of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" is likely to have children as well as adults asking that eternal question of a trip with too little entertainment: Are we there yet? Family films don't have to be stiff, but I frequently felt that this adaptation of Jules Verne's novel was made for primarily one reason: action scenes shot in 3-D, a...

By Michael Janusonis Director Eric Brevig's updated version of the Jules Verne classic Journey to the Center of the Earth is an old-fashioned, rip- roaring, seat-of-the-pants action film that harkens back to the days of the Saturday matinee movies of the 1950s. Indeed, the last big-screen version of Verne's tale about explorers who get trapped underground in a mine cave-in in Iceland and try to find their way out was released in 1959 with the unlikely starring combination of James Mason...

By Jeff Simon, The Buffalo News, N.Y. Jul. 11--What I like so much about "Journey to the Center of the Earth" isn't the 3-D, although I can't tell you how much the 3-D glasses and the process itself have improved since the days when people watched movies like "House of Wax" (most people's favorite 3-D junk), "Bwana Devil" and "Phantom of the Rue Morgue" (my personal favorite -- for the scare that comes when the dead body stuffed up the chimney suddenly descends into living room view)....

By Robert Hanks FILMS OF THE WEEK MAMMA MIA! (PG) Phyllida Lloyd (108 mins) ** STARRING Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (PG) Eric Brevig (92 mins) *** STARRING Brendan Fraser, Anita Briem For all I know, Mamma Mia! may be a terrific night out for all the family. On a Friday night in a crowded cinema, with a decent proportion of children and the mildly inebriate, and it seems perfectly plausible that you will have a great time. Unfortunately, I saw it in...

By Jeff Vice Deseret News JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH -- ** -- Brendan Fraser, Josh Hutcherson, Anita Briem; rated PG (violence) In many respects, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" resembles one of those image-projection-and-rollercoaster-action rides you'll find at amusement parks around the United States. Unfortunately, that not only includes the film's special-effects sequences but also its plot, which is a little too sketchy and threadbare for its own good. And as a...

  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.'
