Fall? Oh, me!

I’ve reviewed movies professionally for more than a dozen years. The few weeks immediately surrounding the end of summer has always served as Hollywood’s trash heap. Only, unlike the talking one from “Fraggle Rock,” this trash heap doesn’t offer advice so much as waste hours of people’s lives so that mid-range stars can draw a paycheck.

This post-summer blah is the worst ever. How bad is it? The...

Cutting Room for September 5

I hate it when people talk during movies. But I love it when people play symphonic music live in the theater while I watch a movie! What luck, Alloy Orchestra is returning to Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater for a live musical performance accompanying Dziga Vertov’s 1929 experimental film, Man with a Movie Camera. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for students and only $8 for members....

Cutting Room for August 29

How much more can failed 1980s television show “The Greatest American Hero” give us as a people? Not only was it groundbreaking for its willingness to cast a dude with a perm as a superhero, but it provided the greatest theme song ever with “Believe It or Not.” That song, in turn, became the basis for “Seinfeld” having George Costanza record his amazing musical answering machine message “Believe...

Bro-man Holiday

The Trip to Italy

First things first: The Trip to Italy, the sequel to 2010’s surprise hit The Trip, may be the whitest movie ever made. Featuring immeasurable first-world ennui, the characters talk about Percy Shelley and Lord Byron like current pop icons and play deep album cuts from Alanis Morrisette’s “Jagged Little Pill” while driving a convertible minicar. The film was one PGA endorsement deal away from the...
