Well, at least we have a Pope

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published March 14, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.

It’s another slow week at the cineplex, with only The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (which our Dan Lybarger contends isn’t ), the Halle Berry thriller The Call (which technically did screen for critics, just too late for our deadlines) , a faith-based adventure tale (The Lost Medallion) and a neo noir called The Power of Few opening in local theaters. We tried to arrange reviews of those last two — and we were highly interested in The Power of Few, which looks to be an intriguing venture, with a fair amount of star power (well, Christopher Walken and Christian Slater are in it) — but we never heard back from either movie’s publicists.

Which brings our to our lead piece this week, Philip Martin’s OnFilm column about the disappearing film critic — and what distinguishes criticism from “reviewing.” Martin is warming up for next week’s Film Forum, a Winthrop Rockerfeller Institute-sponsored conference to be held atop Petit Jean mountain. You can read all about that in Levi Agee’s Screengems column (which wasn’t written by Levi this week because he became a father for the first time — congratulations!). And in her Home Movies column, Karen Martin highlights the hipster Lost Weekend, James Ponsoldt’s Smashed.

Who cares what a movie critic has to say, most people listen to public opinion to learn how successful a movie is.
