Big Footloose Thing Year (Weekly Links)

Julianne Hough and other people, Footloose

Links to reviews I wrote for the Herald, and etc.

The Thing. “A reasonable job of keeping the screws tightened.”

Footloose. “Like watching a tribute band imitate the original.”

The Big Year. “It never feels like a real movie.”

Trespass. “It shames me to say I enjoyed this trashy movie.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the re-dos of Footloose and The Thing and why someone thought we needed them. The session is archived here; the movie bit kicks in around 20:15 or thereabouts.

At What a Feeling!, some horror reviews for the pre-Halloween season. There’s a double of The Stepfather and Wanted Dead or Alive, and another double of Impulse and C.H.U.D.

On Sunday afternoon, I’ll introduce a screening of Nicolas Philibert’s Nénette, his 2010 documentary about a longtime resident of the Paris Zoo. That’s 2 p.m. at the Frye Art Museum, free; more details here.
