Cutting Room for February 21

  • You remember Ed Norton, right? He’s the guy from the cell phone commercials who was the Hulk for a hot minute. Well, he may not have used up all his acting juju like we thought. This week, it was revealed Eddie will direct and star in Motherless Brooklyn, based on the fantastic Jonathan Lethem novel about a detective with Tourette syndrome. If done right, this could be a riveting neo-noir...

Kevin Costner Hates You

3 Days to Kill

He laid low.

For the last decade, Kevin Costner mostly kept to himself, popping up only to save our oceans from oil spills with inventions from Waterworld and to convince Superman he shouldn’t be so super, man. But now my least favorite actor is back, and he’s looking to make up for lost time in the “things that suck” department. And sweet tap-dancing Moses does 3 Days to Kill suck.

3 Days...

Cutting Room for February 14

  • After years of pretending not to receive my phone calls or emails, George Clooney is finally answering my request that he make a film about the 1980s Norwegian oil boom. Finally, am I right? Sure, big fans of Norway and fossil fuels enjoyed Pioneer, the 2013 thriller that Clooney is now turning into an American film. But I can finally rest knowing big George will share the glory and majesty...

Droning On

Robocop

For one brief, shining moment, the completely unnecessary remake of Robocop suggested the possibility of non-suckage. Pat Novak (Samuel L. Jackson), a host of cable news propaganda, frothily and non-ironically suggests using the same drone-based military action we use abroad to curb violence at home. Suddenly, this Robocop appeared to have a purpose: skewering American apathy about machines...

Cutting Room for February 7

  • Imagine being deprived of seeing movies in the theater. For the record, just typing that sentence made me nauseous and scared. Well, the fine folks at Aksarben Cinema don’t want anyone to miss out on the theatrical experience, so they are rolling out a “Sensory Friendly” Movie Program designed to provide a comfortable environment for children and families affected by autism spectrum...

Construction’s Fun, Son

The Lego Movie

Writers/directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have stepped on the modern zeitgeist as forcefully as most of us have once stepped on the jagged foot-killers known as Lego blocks. The Lego Movie is kind of insane. Half the time, it operates on a critical meta-level—actually, sometimes it’s a meta-meta level—while lovingly embracing the spasticity of imaginative kids. The animation isn’t...
