Hobo with a Kung Fu Hangover (Weekly Links)

Waiting for a monkey: Hangover Part II

Links to reviews I wrote for the Herald:

The Hangover Part II. “Smoking monkey steals the film.”

Kung Fu Panda 2. “Loud and aggressive.”

Hobo with a Shotgun. “Drink deep from the goblet of revenge.”

Incendies. “Forget the 19th-century novel; this movie wants to be Greek tragedy.”

The First Grader. “Slice of uplift.”

L’amour Fou. “Saint Laurent looks like someone who’d like to go away and read Proust.”

And some capsule recommendations for the upcoming week at the Seattle International Film Festival.

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about a variety of SIFF movies. It’s archived here; the movie bit kicks in at the 15:15 point.

At my other website, What a Feeling!, we close Woody Allen week with Eighties reviews of Hannah and Her Sisters and Radio Days.

In Rotten news, publisher Moonstone is discounting issues of the zombie western comic book; a buck apiece for numbers 2-9.
