8-Bit-O-Honey

Wreck-It Ralph

For a generation weaned on more Mario than Mother Goose, Wreck-It Ralph has been a long time coming. An 8-bit fairy tale with a burly bruiser in the role of the misunderstood princess, it skews a tad more prepubescent than Pixar but shares similar DNA. Writers Jennifer Lee and Phil Johnston won’t be unlocking any bonus levels for originality, with a conceit that feels poached from Toy Story and...

Partly Sunny

Cloud Atlas

To steal from Mother Goose (don’t worry, she’s dead): When Cloud Atlas is good, it’s very, very good; and when it’s bad, Hugo Weaving is doing a drag impression of Nurse Ratched. The ambition of writers/directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Twyker, working from David Mitchell’s novel, is flabbergastingly impressive. Fueled by more humility than hubris, beautiful endeavors like this one are...

No-Town Music

Detropia

At its worst, cinema verite is aimless pretense masquerading as artistic intent. At its best, it is Detropia, a documentary that adds soul to statistics, going inside the implosion of a once proud city using a sprawling, haunting approach. That isn’t to say that directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady don’t infuse the proper factual context for their mournful postmortem. Neither transcendent nor...

Cutting Room for October 26

  • While he was The Governator, didn’t you sometimes look at Arnold Schwarzenegger and think, “Man, I wish you’d take your shirt off and hoist a giant sword above your blossoming grandpa man teats!” No? Just me? Well then I’m in luck, as Arnie is going to star in The Legend of Conan. The ten of you who saw it may be thinking, “Didn’t they just reboot Conan like a year ago?” They did. But don’t...

Being Near Emma Watson

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Reconciling the public’s fascination with Emma Watson’s blossoming sexuality with realizing the first time she was on-screen she was 11 years old is really difficult. Doing so in a movie where her character’s sexuality is fundamentally warped because of an experience at 11 years old feels like a pretty clear indictment of said fascination. So if we could take a second from obsessing over the...
