My Week with the Artist (Weekly Links)

Clooney, in a world of Payne

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

The Descendants. “The border between the slapstick and the tragic.”

The Muppets. “Funny and likable enough to stand on its own two feet.”

The Artist. “Dujardin is the movie’s main source of delight.”

My Week with Marilyn. “The standard ‘my brush with greatness’ quality.”

And a little holiday preview, just because.

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Katy Sewall about the nostalgia seeping out of this week’s openings, and other throwback items such as Taco Flavored Doritos. The talk is archived here; the movie bit kicks in at the 15:30 mark.

The week at What a Feeling! has been all Eighties sequels; catch up on reviews of Fletch Lives, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and The Jewel of the Nile. And hey, we’ve reached the one-year birthday of this website, but don’t worry – there is much more 1980s-osity to come.

Next Wednesday night, Nov. 30th, stop by the Sammamish Library at 7 p.m. for “Things to Come: Visions of the Future on Film,” in which we look at utopian and dystopian pictures from the history of movies.
