MOVIE REVIEW: Bourne ... again

posted: 07/29/2016 5:45 a.m. Comment 1

Here's a conundrum for all the aspiring screenwriters in the audience: How do you take a story about a character that's essentially already been completed, and re-engage your audience with a new story about mostly the exact same thing? Whatever answer you may come up with, I can assure you the "just rehash the best bits from the original yarn and reheat the whole thing in the microwave" approach is a narrative dead end.

Review: Nerve

posted: 07/29/2016 1:54 a.m. Discuss

In a perfect moment of unplanned-for marketing synergy, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman's spooky teen internet thriller Nerve comes directly on the heels of the nation throwing all reason and rationality to the wind and pursuing tiny virtual reality critters all over the world in the name of collective fun.

Review: Captain Fantastic

posted: 07/29/2016 1:53 a.m. Discuss

A story of love and extremes, the pleasurably freewheeling Captain Fantastic centers on a family that has found its bliss in splendid, unplugged isolation. Somewhere in deepest Oregon, amid the tall pines and soaring mountains, young and old hunt and holler and drop lines from Noam Chomsky.

On Film: Sitting in a theater is still worthwhile

posted: 07/29/2016 1:52 a.m. Comments 3

There is a sense that we're losing touch with a lot of our traditional forms of interaction. A lot of the things that used to pull people out into the streets to mill around with strangers have been replaced by things we do in our homes, alone or with people we see every day. Absent a professional obligation, I don't go out to the movie theater much in the evenings anymore. That's kind of a shame, but there are too many options at my fingertips -- in addition to cable TV and Netflix there's a library of DVDs I'll never work my way through.

Review: Bad Moms

posted: 07/29/2016 1:49 a.m. Discuss

As I've written before, it has to be seen as something akin to progress that a ribald female-centric comedy can open wide in this day and age without anyone batting an eye. In the vast cultural desert that came before Bridesmaids proved to a disbelieving Hollywood that such a vehicle could not only exist, but also make bank, such a film would have been surely seen as a heresy. Unfortunately, that fact alone is not enough to keep this sloppy encrusted marshmallow of a comedy from being so slapdash and inconsistent. We may have come a long way, baby, but we clearly still have a long way to go.

Review: Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

updated: 07/29/2016 1:48 a.m. Discuss

Like the intoxicants they devour, the antics of Absolutely Fabulous protagonists Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) and Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) are more fun when taken in moderate doses.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: Will God forgive me because I no longer go to church? I really miss it, but I'm a lot older now and not in very good health, and just can't get around like I used to. I even gave up driving a few months ago. Does God understand?
