Cutting Room for May 23

Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) cares about the well-being of little ones. I don’t mean Smurfs or Fraggles, though to be fair, I bet Aksarben would be sympathetic to those multicolored wee ones as well. Once again, the theater is hosting the Free Family Flicks, which are flicks for families that are free. Doors open at 9:30 am on Saturdays starting on May 31 with the first film, Despicable...

Era of Yesterday’s Tomorrows

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Of the many things that director Bryan Singer would like to hide and forget, the X-Men movies made without him should be nowhere near the top of his (allegedly) vile list. Still, clearly at Singer’s behest, X-Men: Days of Future Past sticks its fingers in its ears and yells “nananana I can’t hear you” when it comes to preserving the continuity of a film series that has been drudging on for a...

Sad People Sadly Staring

Ida

If the blurb for a movie contains the words “Nazi occupation” and “dark family secret,” you can safely assume it won’t one day play on Comedy Central. Ida is permeated with such thick, dank sorrow that I began counting the number of times any character smiled. I had to open it up to “not explicitly frowning” before someone cracked the scoreboard.  This isn’t to say Ida is overly pessimistic; the...

What we talk about when we talk about Game of Thrones

Disclaimer 1: You don't want no part of this if you aren't completely caught up with this season of "Game of Thrones." HERE THERE BE SPOILERS.

Disclaimer 2: I am a fan of “Game of Thrones.” I like it. I think it is good. I will never stop watching it. I am not about to convince you the show is bad.

However…

While by no means have I surveyed each and every wrap-up, summation or critical...

Cutting Room for May 16

- Here’s the thing: I don’t really care what Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell choose to make a movie about, only that they’re teaming up again. The Make-ya-pee-your-pants Pair (feel free to steal that, guys) aren’t doing a sequel to The Campaign, but they are doing Larry’s Kidney. What’s fascinating is that the director, Richard Linklater, is known more for sly, subtle, heartbreaking dramedies...

Atomic Blast

Godzilla

Repent! The end is nigh! For unto them shall come a lizard with a beer belly, barfing atomic breath and bringing despair and sadness to Heisenberg from “Breaking Bad!”

It’s safe to say that the ad campaign for director Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot sold an apocalyptic product that seemed to be in line with the grim n’ gritty, death n’ destruction blockbusters that are en vogue these days. From...
