Cutting Room for December 1

  • Just a quick note on how we’re all terrible. I found out that Paul Walker had been killed in a car accident leaving a charity function via Twitter…in a joke. After celeb-shaming site TMZ broke news, the internet decided to wait all of zero seconds before making tasteless, classless jokes about a guy who by all accounts was a pretty decent person. There’s lots of debate to be had about...

Snow Coincidence

Frozen

Dangling from the edge of Mount Treacly, overlooking the icy abyss of Cliché River, Frozen hurls a Bechtel rope and swings itself to safety in the nick of time. And just in case you miss the climax’s blatantly obvious flipping of established Disney gender roles, which mandates female-on-female violence prior to male rescue, there’s a joke about how a dude will like his new “sled” because “it’s...

Cutting Room for November 22

 

  • Considering that film critics these days are given all the respect of a well-written Yelp review, this bit of news made me smile. Producer Michael De Luca recently revealed that Boogie Nights, an absolute masterpiece that put director Paul Thomas Anderson on the map, almost went straight to video. Who saved it? Critics. Rave reviews from the New York Film Festival kept the movie off the...

You Say You Want a Revolution?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The “99% vs the 1%” analogy at work in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has all the subtlety of a funeral selfie. But it is precisely this lack of sophistication in message that may make this the most zeitgeist-capturing, intellectually resonant sci-fi series of this era. With a female protagonist, overt racial themes and a wonderfully literal “poor versus the poor while the rich look on”...

Cutting Room for November 15

 

  • For a guy who was as dominant militarily as someone who is biologically French can be, we haven’t seen a lot of Napoleon Bonaparte in movies. Really, the only lasting impression he’s made on the big screen was opposite Bill and Ted, but the Wyld Stallyns may have to move over. Rupert Sanders, known equally for directing Snow White and the Huntsman as he was for doing it with that film’s...
