Cutting Room for October 24

We’ve been patient. But now, finally, we are getting the single most important product a movie ever promised us. Hendo Hover is determined to make real, usable hoverboards in 2015. You heard me. Marty McFly’s floating skateboard from Back to the Future is allegedly coming next year. I knew we had staved off the apocalypse to this point for a reason.

Oh snap! DC Comics and parent company Warner...

Dogged Determination

John Wick

John Wick killed three guys with a pencil.

John Wick is so good at killing, he had to bury his guns beneath a cement floor just so he wouldn’t keep murdering.

John Wick will shoot you in the face, even if his face is by your face. John Wick wants to shoot you in the face that much.

If you aren’t picking up on it, John Wick is ridiculous. Directed by long-time stuntmen David Leitch and Chad...

Yes, They Mean You

Dear White People

Thrill-seekers live for the rush that comes from defying death; adrenaline is the body’s chemical “thank you” for keeping it alive. Somehow, that’s the sensation I got watching Dear White People, writer/director Justin Simien’s declaration that he didn’t come to half-ass it. Audacious, overly ambitious, challenging and understandably flawed, Dear White People may be the most important...

Fury Is Missing Fast

Fury

Inside of writer/director David Ayer’s Fury is a tight, 90-minute, “we will hold this line” war movie populated with complex characters and surprisingly good performances. Problem is, it was slipped into the carcass of a dirty, confused, overly serious, inconsistently grotesque snoozer in which Shia LaBeouf cries so often you’ll want to beat the accountant’s mustache off his stupid face if you...

Cutting Room for October 17

On Friday Nov. 7, birds will do more than poop on your freshly washed car. Film Historian Bruce Crawford will hold his staggering 35th tribute to classic movies with a screening of The Birds, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic feathered frightener. Crawford hit a home run by getting star Tippi Hedren to join him at the event to be held at 7 pm at the Joslyn Art Museum. Tickets are $23, are available at...

Cutting Room for October 10

Known primarily as a painter, Andy Warhol also made movies I mostly don’t understand or appreciate. If you feel like seeing whether you can get what the semi-whacko artist was doing with his cinema shenanigans, head down to Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater starting Nov 30. “Films From Warhol’s Factory” is a series presented in collaboration with Joslyn Art Museum to coincide with their Warhol...
