The Green Hornet Dilemma (Weekly Links)

James and Vaughn: Green Hornet and Kato as bromance

Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week, and etc.

The Green Hornet. “A couple of superbad musketeers.”

The Dilemma. “Vaughn’s got that blend of humor and hostility down pat.”

And Everything is Going Fine. “One man’s neurotic quest to give shape to the chaos of his life.”

Hiroshima. “An unremarkable day made remarkable.”

Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone. “Dad doesn’t love me, what is my purpose in life beyond defeating giant robots from space, blah blah blah.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s past employment and current unemployment; Spalding Gray; and the “electric cars are gay” scene in The Dilemma. Archived here; the movie bit kicks in around the 15:30 mark.

I would also like to thank Ernesto DiezMartinez, who writes for Mexico’s Reforma newspaper, for his generous description of The Crop Duster on his blog, Vértigo. I don’t speak the language, but it sounds really cool in Spanish.

And Arnold Schwarzenegger week concludes at my other website, What a Feeling!, with a reprint of my original 1988 review of Twins.
