Despicable Coco Predators (Weekly Links)

Noomi Rapace: girl who played with firearms

Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week.

Women Without Men. “A residual ability to haunt.”

Predators. “Fearsome tusked dogs.”

Despicable Me. “The timing is off.”

[Rec] 2. “Some nice jolts along the way.”

The Girl Who Played with Fire. “From one farfetched situation to the next.”

Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky. “A certain dreadful tendency of the European art movie.”

Johanna. “It has the ‘What on Earth am I watching?’ appeal.”

And you are required to watch the new “music video” for Rotten, which will likely leave you with an irresistible urge to order the brand-new issues (and the trade paperback of the first six issues), all coming out soon.

No KUOW appearance this week, thanks to a 10 a.m. screening of Predators on Wednesday, during my usual time slot. Yes, 10 a.m.: not the ideal time for a Predators movie (and yet it still worked).
