Cutting Room Floor for November 18

  • Although it gets difficult to defend the weekend after a new Adam Sandler movie or Twilight entry is upchucked upon the masses, film is art. Late local artist Kent Bellows had my back, and the Joslyn Art Museum can prove it. Thursday, Dec. 2, at 6:30 pm, the museum will host “Kent Bellows and the Influence of Film,” a lecture by Molly S. Hutton. The lecture is free with museum admission, and you’ll hear Hutton discuss how Bellows borrowed from “Bergman, Hitchcock and Fincher, with a little Disney and Godzilla thrown in.” See, the big green guy isn’t just a skyscraper chomper, he’s also a muse. Hit up kentbellows.org for more info on a lecture that further supports cinema as art, no matter what Kevin James and Vince Vaughn do to it.

  • I loved Easy A and I don’t care who knows it. The estrogen-heavy, teen-set flick was maybe the most fun I had at a movie this year—no matter how much my wife giggles when I mention my adoration of the film. You know what, honey? My year just got better, because Emma Stone and director Will Gluck are re-teaming for a movie that has no title or plot yet. Shooting next summer, I’m already excited for it … and preparing to defend myself against my wife’s inevitable taunts.

  • Not that I feel the need to reiterate my masculinity, but has everyone heard that Natalie Portman is writing BYO, a sex comedy that she’s going to star in with Anne Hathaway? So if you’re keeping track at home, this creation knocks the discovery of fire down to Number 2 on the list of most significant inventions.
