Selfish Since He Was Bourne

The Bourne Legacy

With his rampant sex addiction and potential alcoholism, no one would consider James Bond a saint. But, hey, at least he’s out there trying to save the world from a bomb, giant laser or bad economic investments (gotta love modern “reality-based” action movies). The Bourne series, on the other hand, follows a “me-first” operative willing to endanger, if not outright kill with his recklessness,...

Comedians United

The Campaign

It seems like an odd way to start a review for a movie in which Will Ferrell tries to make Zach Galifianakis touch his testicles on stage during a debate, but The Campaign has a clever message. Writers Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell move beyond the standard skewing of attack-ad politics and candidates that are either incompetent or lecherous. Oh, sure, they have fun with the Scarecrow and the...

Cutting Room for August 3

  • Whereas I simply come out and make feisty editorial comments about the Aurora shootings, some people—cough, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com), cough—actually do something to directly help. The theater has begun collecting donations at the box office to be given to the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (coloradocrimevictims.org). Think of it like this: If you buy a ticket for The...

Um, Forgettable

Total Recall

If you’ve ever seen an online profile picture, chances are you’re familiar with the pursed-lips, craned-neck, supposedly slimming contortion known affectionally as “the duckface.” Total Recall is the sci-fi tale of a quasi-postapocalyptic duckface war between Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel, with Colin Ferrell as the judge. At least, that’s what this remake of an adaptation of a short story,...

Cutting Room for July 27

  • If ever there was a time Nebraskans were amenable to discussions of an impending water crisis, this would be the time. So it’s a good thing that Film Streams (filmstreams.org) and the Nebraska Chapter of Engineers Without Borders are collaborating on a discussion and screening of the documentary Last Call at the Oasis on Aug 28 at 7 pm. Although oil is the resource most people think of when...
