Sex and the Sands of Time (Weekly Links)

Abu Dhabi Doo (actual joke from Sex and the City 2)

Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week, plus picks for SIFF.

Sex and the City 2. “Daft.”

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. “Very safe, as though everybody involved knew they couldn’t blow it with a new Disney franchise resting on this.”

A string of capsule reviews for the upcoming week at the Seattle International Film Festival.

And on KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about TV series endings and the way a cultural phenomenon can be a part of one’s life by osmosis (in other words, I never watched Lost). Listen here; the “Cultural Moment” bit begins about 14 minutes in.
