Cutting Room for March 2

  • Of all the ways to stuff a piggy bank, a discussion with director Steven Soderbergh is the most enjoyable way to plug the pork. Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) turned Feature III, their annual can’t-miss fundraising gala, into a wickedly profitable venture. The event raised more than $217,000 and some interesting questions regarding Soderbergh’s retirement. Soderbergh...

Middle Aged Kids

Hall Pass

It’s a time-tested formula: take some stars, sex, a bit of compassion and an absurd plot device, filter it through the mind of a 12-year-old boy, and you’ve got a Farrelly brothers picture. Bobby and Peter, creators of There's Something About Mary, are back with Hall Pass. Depending on how you like your jokes, that’s mildly good or very bad news.

Rick (Owen Wilson) is a mostly content,...

Glass Case of Emotion

DVD Discovery: Fish Tank

If Miley Cyrus were around 12 times as edgy as her calculatedly smutty videos suggest, Mia Williams (Katie Jarvis) would still eat that priss for breakfast and put a cigarette out on her eye. With a tongue that links staggering expletives into a nonstop chain of filth, Mia is 15-year-old trailer-trash living in an Essex estate in not-so-great Britain. Dispelling the concept that the...

I love nude yellow dudes not named John Boehner

Our new publishing system was hand crafted by the dark lord Satan. I had this brilliant rant wherein I broke down why I love the Oscars and why it's okay to watch the Oscars even though hipster bloggers hate the Oscars and try to show you how cool they are by creating the perfect "I could give a shit about the Oscars...here are my Oscar thoughts" post. I was hilarious and eloquent. You would have...

Daily Dump for Wednesday (February 23)

In a mere 4 days, I'm live-tweeting the Oscars. I like saying that because it sounds like I'm going to be there. I won't be. I'll probably be pantsless on my couch, sipping inexpensive whiskey. This also means that 2 days from now I give you all the winners, along with my rants about who should win (cough, Inception, cough) but won't. Again, to all my friends on Facebook (which has my twitter...

<p>Liam Neeson’s character solves a mid-life crisis and possibly his wife’s abduction in ‘Unknown’ </p>
German Engineering

Unknown

Forget Harley-Davidsons and 20-something girlfriends — the newest trend for male leads having their second mid-life crisis is action films. Two years ago, 50-something Liam Neeson starred in the surprisingly OK Taken, a high-body-count revenge flick that had him practicing his “combat roll and reload” sequences. His latest foray is Unknown, a good-enough-for-February film that doesn’t...

Cutting Room for February 23

  • It’s official, Baz Luhrmann’s impending favor to high school English students (aka, a new remake of The Great Gatsby) will be shot in 3D. You know, because social allegories are more wicked awesome when things fly at your head. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan are rumored to star, so at least the faces flying at your face will be pretty faces.

  • GQ has more than just...
