The Lucky Deep Blue Horse (Weekly Links)

Efron, Schilling, a Nietzschean take on the apocalypse

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

The Turin Horse. “It begins to look suspiciously like the end of it all.”

The Lucky One. “Efron doesn’t add anything to the party.”

The Deep Blue Sea. “Davies’ movies seem to be made by a hermit with voluptuous tastes.”

Marley. “It’s got the stamp of ‘definitive’ about it.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the convergence of another Nicholas Sparks movie, the death of Thomas Kinkade, and bad taste. It’s archived here; the movie widget begins at the 18:50 mark.

Saturday afternoon, I’ll give a talk in the Humanities Washington speaker program, “Alien Encounters: Sci-Fi Movies and the Cold War Culture of the 1950s,” at the Vashon Island Library at 2 p.m. It’s free; the details are here.

At What a Feeling!, the Eighties trundle on with reviews of James Bridges’ Bright Lights, Big City and Sam Firstenberg’s American Ninja.
