Reviews I wrote for the Herald, and etc.
Moneyball. “It feels like a stretch.”
Killer Elite. “It’s not just the bad dialogue and forced macho posturing that make you cringe.”
On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the treatment of religion in current films – such as Higher Ground and the upcoming Machine Gun Preacher – and a few older titles. It’s archived here; the movie bit kicks in at 15:40, immediately after the monthly test of the Emergency Broadcast System.
Tuesday night, I’ll be at the Issaquah Public Library giving a talk, “Alien Encounters: Sci-Fi Movies and the Cold War Culture,” at 7 p.m., in Issaquah, WA. The Issaquah Press previews the event here. During the weekend I’ll be at the Port Townsend Film Festival for its annual three-day event.
