Notes From A Walkman Junkie:  Thirty-Six Female Fell On Face

“Thirty-six female fell on face.” That was the last noted, and fairly well documented event in my life at the age of thirty-six. I am now thirty-eight and have been thinking quite a bit lately about loss and other fucked things. These thoughts have lead me to recall the not so pleasant details of...

Movie Review: Closed Circuit

There’s nothing horrendously wrong with Closed Circuit. It has intrigue, is well shot and cast, easy to follow, and has a light air of sophistication that all British thrillers seem to possess. The premise is interesting, and, to be fair, I’m the mother of all suckers for anything British — especially if it’s a...

Movie Review: The World’s End

Who else but Edgar Wright can draw so much pathos and emotion from almost nothing at all? “Nothing” in the sense that when his best films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and now, The World’s End jerk you into seriousness, you’re surprised by how you care about the characters – before then it’s...

Movie Review: Jobs

Why they didn’t go with the title jObs is anyone’s guess. At the end of the film, we see a comparison between the actors and the people they played, none of whom are credited. And despite spending two hours with these fellows, there aren’t many you could name. Cliched as it is to say,...

Movie Review: Elysium

Elysium is director Neill Blomkamp’s follow up to District 9 (2009). Blomkamp showed immense promise when he extracted a politically savvy sci-fi thriller from a relatively modest $30 million budget. It was technically slick, and packed a punch with its political commentary about racism. Flash forward four years, and we’ve got more of the...

Movie Review: The Way, Way Back

Bringing a coming of age story to the screen can be tricky business. As a filmmaker, you have to walk the line between being sweet or sappy. The Way, Way Back does so perfectly. Helmed by writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants) the movie is a wonderful blend of humor and heart....

Movie Review: The Conjuring

Lorraine and Ed Warren are probably the most well known paranormal investigators of all time. Their cases have inspired several films, including The Amityville Horror  (1979) and A Haunting in Connecticut (2009). Now comes The Conjuring, a film adaptation of their experiences at a farmhouse in Rhode Island in the early seventies. The Perron...

Movie Review: The Lone Ranger

Late in the movie there’s a scene where a child is playing with a toy train set. As the little model ’rounds the corner, the boy pushes the accelerator, and the toy derails, crashing onto the floor.  The railroad owner, who’s lodging the boy, gives him a light talking-to, “Slow it down at the...

Movie Review: World War Z

World War Z is probably the most solid zombie flick we’re going to get for a while. The characters are well-defined, the acting is better than it needs to be, the look is good, and the story is constructed as a pretty compelling mystery. That’s both a plus and a minus for the film....

Movie Review: ‘Man of Steel’

Whatever happened to The Man of Tomorrow? In the late ’70s, when Richard Donner and Mario Puzo were making their Superman movie, they realized that the lead character, when in costume, lacked a personality. He’s tough, he’s fast, he can fly, and those abilities define him. It may be impressive as spectacle, but it’s...

Brit Marling is one of the most interesting actresses working today, and she is responsible for writing some of the more evocative films of late. In 2011, she co-wrote Sound of My Voice, an eerie story about a charismatic cult figure that may or may not be from the future. Next up she penned...

Movie Review: This Is the End

I’ve had, for some time, the suspicion that the current comedy troop of Rogen, Hill, Cera, and Franco would eventually get to the point where, instead of a script, they would just sit around and talk. Now we have This Is the End, and if this isn’t the logical conclusion of the gang’s comedy,...

Movie Review: Now You See Me

There’s about two ways to show magic on screen — the first is demonstrating the tricks, usually in an unbroken shot (if they’re smart), and hope it’s almost like being there in person. When Danny Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) is introduced, it looks like they’re going this way. He asks someone from the crowd to...

So Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew are back. Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and his crew are back. And some new faces, Hobbs’ partner Riley (Gina Carano) and villain Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) dd to the franchise’s ever-growing roster. I thought the vast number of characters would be too much of a distraction...

Movie Review: Before Midnight

For a film that relies almost exclusively on dialogue (the rapport of Delpy and Hawke cannot be left aside), I’m stumbling to explain it. Hawke and Delpy play Jesse and Celine, two people who met 18 years ago, by chance, on a train from Budapest. They clicked and spent a day together, but other...

I don’t know if it’s the strength of Fitzgerald’s novel or Luhrman’s good understanding of it, but this is a far better adaptation than I was expecting. In case you weren’t in an American high school, The Great Gatsby follows Nick Carraway (played here by Tobey Maguire), a bond trader moved to New York...
