Cutting Room for July 4

There are two movies whose rabid fandom I’ve never understood: The Goonies and Hocus Pocus. The former has had a sequel in the works as long as Dr. Dre has been promising to drop “Detox.” The latter had a sequel rumor bubble in its cauldron this week, one that claimed Tina Fey was making. Turns out that’s not true. What is true is that Fey is working on a completely independent new witch movie...

Ice, Ice Maybe

Snowpiercer

I’m not saying that the impoverished are going to grab axes and violently murder the wealthy elite. But I’m also not NOT saying that…

Writer/director Joon-ho Bong’s Snowpiercer does what the sci-fi genre does better than any other cinematic medium: examines modern life by asking a surreal “what if.” The “what if” in this case being a metaphorical examination of the redistribution of wealth and...

Not So Fast, Rick Santorum

Obvious Child

I do not have a uterus. If I understand biology, I never will. So the issue of abortion has remained at arm’s length from me. This isn’t to say I have no empathy or opinion regarding America’s hottest of hot button issues, only that I realize it’s located under the heading “women’s health” for a reason. As Roger Ebert famously said, “Movies are like a machine that generates empathy.” If Rog were...

Cutting Room for June 27

I have “the fever.” No, it’s not curable by penicillin or cowbell. It’s World Cup fever, which has given me an understanding of what constitutes offsides in soccer and the knowledge that Ronaldo is a person and not a corporate mascot of some kind. Seems I’m not the only one “futbol happy,” as Aksarben Cinema is heading Next Goal Wins our way. On Wednesday, July 9 at 6:30 pm, the theater is...

Cutting Room for June 20

If I wanted to, I could probably fill this column with Star Wars news and rumors every week and never run out. You’re lucky I don’t, because I’m very tempted. I’ve got a lot of great puns and Yoda jokes just ready to go. But I have to tell you this because it’s super exciting: Rian Johnson is going to direct/write Episode VIII and at least write Episode IX! If you’re saying “who is Rian Johnson?”...

Freaky Frequency

The Signal

For a movie reviewer, having a favorite genre kinda feels like a parent having a favorite child; oh, they totally do, they’re just not supposed to talk about it. Well just like your mom told your sister when you were out of earshot, if all other genres were out of the room, I’d totally tell indie sci-fi that it’s my favorite. Basically, I admit that I was at least half in the tank for The Signal...
