Alice-the-whaler-c2a9-walt-disney Cutting Room for December

I love it when high-brow and allegedly “low-brow” things get their “chocolate into peanut butter” and “peanut butter into chocolate.” On Saturday, Dec 5 at Film Streams, The New Philharmonic and the Omaha Symphony will present two showings (at 1:30 pm and 3:15 pm) of Disney’s Alice comedies with live scores!

To resist them isn’t merely tilting at windmills, it’s tilting at windmills you then go ahead and buy anyway. Instead, let’s just get writer/director Ryan Coogler to do all the reboots. All of them. I want him on everything from Die Hard 6 to Perfect Strangers: The Movie. Why? Because Creed just...

A boring "horror" movie in which the scariest thing is the hygeine of American pilgrims.
