LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

R unning on British television in the mid 60's, "The Avengers" made the jump to American sets in 1967. Now it's making the jump to the big screen. Can Uma live up to the original series' Diana Riggs and her wonderful leather catsuit? Find out with our reviews of the film and videos.

Christina Ricci has transitioned from child star of movies such as "The Addams Family" to adult roles. This week we have reviews of two films representing her new direction with "The Opposite of Sex" and "Buffalo '66."

Our short clips this week feature video reviews of novelist John Grisham's movies, a run down of one of Tupac Shakur's last films, "Gang Related," while Metro Pulse's Movie Guru grades some flicks that are new to the big screen.
