Marvel Blockbusts a Cap

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

With fight choreography pickpocketed from Baryshnikov and more leaping and bounding than Pooh’s friend Tigger on cocaine, Captain America (Chris Evans) makes beating the crap out of bad guys look downright pretty. Give directors Joe and Anthony Russo credit; bucking the law of diminishing returns, the brothers found a way to make the umpteenth superhero movie to be released in the last five...

Cutting Room for March 28

  • Gather ‘round and I’ll tell you the tale of these things called “unions” that fought to protect the common worker from being ground into people paste beneath the boot of Goliath businesses.

That Ship Cray

Noah

They gave the guy who made Requiem for a Dream $150 million to make a movie about Noah’s ark. Huh?! In Requiem, writer/director Darren Aronofsky had Jennifer Connelly connect with another woman via an unforgettable shared “experience.” So, if any exec at Paramount claims they didn’t think Noah would end up like this, they are real dumb.


It takes all of five minutes for Noah to deliver a...

Quirking on Something Different

The Grand Budapest Hotel

To alter a phrase from Twain, who won’t mind because he’s dead, writer/director Wes Anderson repeated history until he figured out how to rhyme. Barring a brief foray into stop-motion animation, Anderson’s oeuvre for the last decade redundantly hit the same notes with the same instruments, producing repetitive, quirky music that hipsters totally liked before you did. Until now.

To alter a...

Cutting Room for March 21

  • Someone has finally found out about my obsession with Cooter from “Dukes of Hazzard.” That was my first thought when I heard that Film Streams is screening Best Kept Secrets on Tuesday April 22 at 7 pm. Turns out that it’s not about my well hidden fetish but, instead, it’s a gripping documentary about a special needs teacher trying to prepare her students for life after high school. Together...
